    1 thought on “Cousins”

    1. The story follows the very different lives of three Maori cousins living in New Zealand. Mata is the first cousin that we begin to learn about, and as a small child she is brought to the home of her aunt and grandparents for a visit. It becomes clear rather quickly that she does not feel comfortable in this environment because she's been raised in non-Maori customs. Mata continues to remind herself about her Christian upbringing, which leads to problems of modesty (for example, her cousins pee o [...]

    2. On a miserable, cold, wet Sunday I sat down with this book and became oblivious to the weather. This story captured me and transported me. The wonder of books and storytelling is that they allow us to not only see the world from another perspective, but also to feel the emotions of the characters as if you are walking in their shoes. Books take you to places that movies can't reach because when watching a movie you are always a spectator, always on the outside looking in. A book allows you insid [...]

    3. I decided to kick off my first review for Indigenous Literature Week with a novel by Patricia Grace of Ngati Toa, Ngati Raukawa and Te Ati Awa descent, because she is visiting Melbourne for the Melbourne Writers Festival and the First Nations Australia Writers’ Network Workshop. Grace is one of New Zealand’s best known writers and has an impressive body of work which includes novels, short stories and children’s books. Her best known work is probably the ground-breaking Potiki (1986) which [...]

    4. I loved this book. I'm sure being a New Zealander gave me a head start, even though a pakeha one, as the three cousins of the title are all maori and born around the forties. The book follows the women through to the present day, with separate chapters as the women tell their stories.I'm grateful for writers like Patricia Grace. I will never understand fully a culture that is so different to my own, but novels like this help to lift the veil a little, and allow us insight, and hopefully a deeper [...]

    5. I'm a huge fan of Patricia Grace, and recommend this. Because her books are so rooted in New Zealand, other readers might miss the intent of some cultural references but they'll be rewarded so richly by reading her. An exquisite writer not be missed!

    6. This is probably a case of starting a book at the wrong time but not really having a better time to try again. The beginning was rather overwhelming in the amount of minutiae piled on the reader and the slight disorientation in time and space as we try to figure out where this woman is and how she came to be where she is now. I don't doubt that this book does what it's supposed to do, namely explore the lives of three cousins who have shared a magical childhood moment, but I don't think it's rea [...]

    7. Patricia Grace was recommended to me as one of New Zealand's foremost novelists, and this story started out in an interesting way. As the story of the three cousins living their intersecting and disparate lives progressed through time, however, they began to feel less three-dimensional and their stories became removed from one another. Grace adds further challenges to the feeling of this being a cohesive story by varying person, including using the awkward second person.

    8. I really enjoyed this look into Maori culture, since I don't know very much about it. The characters were so interesting, and I loved seeing the world from all three main characters' points-of-view. I would have liked to know the meaning of the Maori words the author used throughout the novel. And it wasn't clear to me just when the book took place. But it was a great read all the same!

    9. Lovely book and I look forward to reading more of her short stories/collections. 'Cousins' reads more like a series of linked short stories.Some of the later chapters felt forced to me, but overall I enjoyed the book.

    10. A story about three cousins who grew up in different environments.Maori culture is blended in with temporary political issues in New Zealand, mirrored from every possible perspective.A good book to read if you want to learn about Maori culture.
