    review The Westing Game Ellen Raskin ¼ 4 Read & Download [EBOOK/EPUB] (The Westing Game) I just want to cut to the chase the last three chapters over the course of about nine pages are some of the most moving I've read in a book written for kids life loss death; growing up and getting old; compassion and empathy; sadness and mourning sweetness and light it's all there such a generosity of spirit from Ellen Raskin I would have loved to have known her but I sorta feel I do from those few pages the book itself is a delightful l

The Westing Game is first full length mystery I remember reading Well besides Encyclopedia Brown and Nancy Drew books But the one mystery that I could still have told you general details about the plot It might have been the cleverness of the mystery or it s absence of gore It could have been identification with the shin kicking protagonist nicknamed Turtle It could have been the clever signals of winds and atmosphere that run throughout the book Whatever it was Raskin s story stayed with me for yearsOpening pageThe sun sets in the west just about everyone knows that but Sunset Towers faced east StrangeSunset Towers faced east and had no towers This glittery glassy apartment house stood alone on the Lake Michigan shore five stories high Five empty stories highThen one day it happened to be the Fourth of July a most uncommon looking delivery boy rode around town slipping letters under the doors of the chosen tenants to be The letters were signed Barney NorthrupThe delivery boy was sixty two years old and there was no such person as Barney NorthrupIt is a variation on the manor house mystery with a very disparate group of people brought together physically Initially they are convinced to rent or buy units in the newly constructed Sunset Towers a small building that has room for a coffee shop a restaurant and a small office perfect for further enticing the future tenants The tenants discover they have something additional in common when they are called together for the reading of Sam Westing s will An isolating snowstorm ramps up the tensionNarration is third person which is solidly done Initially all the characters have aspects that make them seem flawed or perhaps somewhat unlikable Interestingly however it was probably one of the broadest casts I can remember reading a black woman who is now a judge who grew up poor a Greek family whose skin is darker than the black woman s an interesting concept for a young white kid a Chinese family one a recent immigrant a couple of economically limited white guys a suburban white family a single white older woman dressmaker We pop in and out of most of their heads at some point which ends up giving the reader insight than they each have on each otherThere s accusations in a review or two of racism but on adult read I d say that the racism is all internal to the characters and Raskin does a solid job of showing how things a certain character might say or do regarding someone else s race is about their own knowledge deficits I found only a couple of moments for me that might not pass the twenty first century sniff test One of the characters Chris has some sort of unspecified physical disability that impairs movement and speech One of the uestionable moments comes up when his brother Theo tells someone else that they don t need to talk to Chris like a baby because he s not retardedI usually avoid reading books from childhood as I m afraid of having precious memories tarnished I thought The Westing Game held up well It s told in an omniscient third person and tends to switch person and location fairly freuently In the book the switches are clearly denoted with but it s the sort of thing that probably won t translate well to audio unless it was done with an ensemble cast I think it is definitely a YA but in the best sense of the word Many of the techniues it uses are great for people that are younger and haven t figured some of this out yet ie a judge that still has some insecurities or decides that she will not to compete for the prize but to protect The shifts in perspective and time work well for developing empathy I think each character goes through a redemption arc and even the one I remember disliking the most Otis was shown to be something other than appearance suggested I ended up searching out a hardcover for my own library and am glad to have it around

A group read with my pantaloonless buddiesSixteen very different people were invited to reading of a will of multi millionaire Samuel W Westing The guy stated he would be killed and whoever finds the murderer would get all his fortune He provided the participants or players as Westing called them with different clues to help but in my humble opinion they only provided additional confusion Coming back in time somebody worked really hard to make sure these sixteen people come to live in the same luxurious apartment building If you think this beginning has a strong And Then There Were None vibe you are absolutely right Again in my humble opinion Ellen Raskin does not come close to the greatness of Agatha Christie Then again who doesReading this book clued me in on how to spot a YA book easily The biggest giveaway would be the fact that in this genre slightly grown up kids aka young adults are always unfailingly smarter than the actual adults The obnoxious the teen the smarter shehe turns out to be I can understand it in children books the adults are treated as guardians teachers etc and thus they are not brain dead If you want to ponder to teenagers with their rebellious phase of growing up we all came through this you want to show them to be the smart ones I can accept this By the way in case you know of an exception to this rule please inform me as I cannot think of any What I do not accept is the condescending tone of YA literature For some reason in children books the readers often treated as euals making them better and satisfying reads for me an adult who left his teen years behind a long time ago The book was guilty of thisLast piece of criticism I hate rapid changes of POVs with the passion Here they would often change after just one paragraph making the whole story look like a series in disconnected scenes I like the idea of tell do not show but here is was taken to the extreme adding to the feeling of disconnection between what was actually shown and not told However after all the mud slinging I did I liked the book well enough not to get too bored I only got frustrated from time to time and I have not regrets about reading it The rating is 3 stars Anti YA rant mode off
