    Tideland review ☆ eBook or Kindle ePUB TidelandI really enjoyed this book in the same way that I enjoyed The Wasp Factory The story reads similar in that it is a very disturbing with creepy undertones I loved Jeliza Rose I wanted to pick her up and hug her and take her away from all of the madness that was her life There isn't any child that should live that type of life and yet Jeliza Rose was doing the only thing she could do to survive She lives an odd life for a ten year old and she does things that no child should She is parent to her mom and dad than either of them are to her throughout the story And that's sad Her dealing mechanism had an aspect that I found to be most creepy but it got the kid through her days The larger part of that is Jeliza Rose living in a world that she controls an

    Tideland review ☆ eBook or Kindle ePUB TidelandWhen neglected Jeliza Rose is forced to grow up way too fast after the death of her mother she finds herself not facing a harsh reality but retreating further into childhood fantasies With only her disembodied vintage Barbie dolls and an intellectually disabled adult man named Dickens for friends she immerses herself in imaginative games rather than seeking help from Dickens or his unstable and eccentric sister Dell I found this book way too disturbing and morbid at times but it's still a creative thoughtful and strangely eye opening story about the effects unintentional neglect can have on a child and how sometimes the only way to survive in a crazy world is to go crazy yourself Jeliza Rose eventually is unable to tell fact from fiction has an odd fixation on death and happy normal families and Dell only seems to make things worse since she knew JR's father from an earlier point in time Surreal haunting and truly unforgettable Tideland is unlike anythi

    Tideland review ☆ eBook or Kindle ePUB TidelandI discovered Tideland the movie last Spring through Netflix I hesitate to say I was going through a Terry Gilliam phase but I think that is how Netflix interpreted it I was fascinated It was grotesue It was fantastical and disturbing Pretty Amazing I had to read the book My favorite Chicago bookstore Unabridged did not have it in stock but they were than happy to special order it for me and within a couple days I had the book in my hands The look of the book was decidedly low budget but I was blinded by anticipation I began the book immediately However I fear I began the book TOO soon after seeing the movie and Terry Gilliam won out his adaptation was faithful and exact Except he had the advantage of bringing Cullin's flat words to life through actors scenery and gruesome props If you're going to do one or the other I strongly recommend sticking with the movie adaptation Cullin's ideas are fascinating and disturbing but his prose simply does not do

    Tideland review ☆ eBook or Kindle ePUB TidelandWow that was an experienceI have to admit I had watched the movie before though it was many years ago I barely just remembered the bare bones plot so I was familiar with the story and it wasn't shocking for me but The story is still very grotesue and surreal and while it may seem nonsensical at first glance it actually makes perfect sense the entire way through if you put yourself in the sh

    Tideland review ☆ eBook or Kindle ePUB TidelandI've never been so torn over a book in my life It has the potential to be the very worst book I've read or the very best and it all hinges on whether or not I take a moment to reflect on my childhood and recall what it's like to be innocent carefree and to never know any better How fitting that the novel got picked up by none other than Terry Gilliam a director whose films I can never bring myself to grade or gather my thoughts around but that always seem to take residence in my imagination and haunt my dreams Now even if I can't gather my thoughts around THIS book and can only blather on about how I can't think what to say it deserves the rating nonetheless for ap

    Tideland review ☆ eBook or Kindle ePUB TidelandYeah this is one of those works of art that seems like it is running a contest with itself to see how twisted and dark it can be and still ualify as 'art'Mitch Cullin must have given himself the idea for Tideland like thisI think every human being is completely fucked up and I am going to write an entire book about itI know this method very well because it's how I found out about this book in the first placeWhen I was a teenager I was really into disturbing weird twisted art particularly in the form of films I mainly liked the style of acting that went with them and the fact that a

    Tideland review ☆ eBook or Kindle ePUB Tidelandit started off ok it was a uick read with some moments that weren't terrible but I didn't really like it I didn't really find much of a story but maybe something just went over my head sometimes it seemed weird for weirdness's sake but it wasn't as strange or creepy as I was hoping it would be just left a lot to be desired for me

    Tideland review ☆ eBook or Kindle ePUB TidelandI saw the film when it came out That was ten years ago and I don’t remember much about it if I’m being honest As I read the book some of it came back to me but only impressions I should probably watch it again now The book I enjoyed immensely and I can see why Gilliam jumped at the chance to direct it although I would’ve been eually excited to see a version by Tim Burton; I suppose Big Fish is the closest we’ll ever get to that My only real problem with the book was I didn’t know when it was being narrated I knew who but not when and it wouldn’t have taken much to answer that uestion We learn very early on in the novel something important about Jeliza RoseEven though I was eleven I had never been in a school bus I had never been to schoolBecause my father believed public education bred dumb children I
