Read Kings of Broken Things Kings of Broken Things review ´ 104 Read ´ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook Í Theodore Wheeler With characters depicted in precise detail and wide panorama a kept woman’s parlor a contentious interracial baseball game on the Fourth of July and the tragic true events of the Omaha Race Riot of 1919 Kings of Broken Things reveals the folly of human nature in an era of astonishing ambitionDuring the waning days of World War I three lost souls find themselves adrift in Omaha Nebraska at a time of unprecedented nationalism xenophobia and political corruption Adolescent European refugee Karel. I love when a story grabs me right away and drops me into a world I had no idea I would be fascinated by This book pulled me into Omaha Nebraska at the end of WWI and showed the immense racial national and economic strife bubbling up to the surface The cast of characters are rich diverse and compelling I ve happened across some of Wheeler s short stories in literary journals in the past and made a note to watch out for whatever big book he surly had in him and this does not disappoint The amazing amount of research that went into the writing of this book was seamlessly incorporated and created a lively sort of dangerous world on the cusp of great cultural change The lead up to and execution of the Omaha race riot he portrays feels like one of those prophesized historical moments that if forgotten repeats itself and reading this novel against the backdrop of our current news cycles was a profound experience I loved the writing the story and the great reminder that historical fiction is very much a mirror to our daily lives A great read
