Heart's Invisible Furies
Heart's Invisible Furies | John Boyne
From the beloved New York Times bestselling author of The Boy In the Striped Pajamas, a sweeping, heartfelt saga about the course of one man's life, beginning and ending in post-war Ireland Cyril Avery is not a real Avery -- or at least, that's what his adoptive parents tell him. And he never will be. But if he isn't a real Avery, then who is he? Born out of wedlock to a teenage girl cast out from her rural Irish community and adopted by a well-to-do if eccentric Dublin couple via the intervention of a hunchbacked Redemptorist nun, Cyril is adrift in the world, anchored only tenuously by his heartfelt friendship with the infinitely more glamourous and dangerous Julian Woodbead. At the mercy of fortune and coincidence, he will spend a lifetime coming to know himself and where he came from - and over his many years, will struggle to discover an identity, a home, a country, and much more. In this, Boyne's most transcendent work to date, we are shown the story of Ireland from the 1940s to today through the eyes of one ordinary man. The Heart's Invisible Furies is a novel to make you laugh and cry while reminding us all of the redemptive power of the human spirit.

"...We need to give the impression that we are a happy, loving family."

"We are a happy, loving family," said Maude, sounding offended by any suggestion to the contrary.

"That's the spirit," said Charles.

#top6reads so far of 2019. Thanks for getting this started @Cinfhen ! It's been fun to see everyone's picks and which books keep repeating. I've definitely moved a few up on my tbr list! I have a feeling East of Eden will be on my end of year favorites list once I've finished it.

Cinfhen Boyne was my favorite read in 2017! And Ladder to the Sky made the list in 2018 🥳🥳🥳 2w
Cinfhen I need to move Vox up my TBR pile😜 2w
staci.reads @Cinfhen I haven't read Ladder to the Sky yet., but it's on my list. Furies was my first Boyne. Vox has gotten a lot of criticism for the 2nd half of the book, but I enjoyed it, and any book that elicits such strong emotions in me is going to be a favorite for sure! 2w
Megabooks Hearts is so good!! I still need to read Ladder, too! 2w

There isn‘t anything new to say about this one, as so many Littens have already read it. However, this was so up my alley and I just loved it. There were a few too many coincidences and ways the characters crossed paths, but I still enjoyed being in this world for awhile and living with these particular characters. It made me smile, cry, and feel lots of emotions, and I was sad to move on to a different book after. It rarely gets better than that.

JanuarieTimewalker13 My fave of the year, thus far, and one of my faves of all time. 1mo

Many people love this novel based on all the five star reviews, and while it is a good audiobook, I‘m not sure it lives up to all the hype. Boyne is one of the best at writing dialogue, and much of the story is told through dialogue. The narrator was the perfect choice for this audiobook. While I enjoyed Boyne‘s latest work, A Ladder to the Sky, more than this one, The Heart‘s Invisible Furies was still good. Overall rating: 4.36 stars.

suvata I loved this book and rounded it up to 5-stars. LOL 3mo
Jason7 I did like the book. Maybe I was expecting too much since a few people told me it was better than A Ladder to the Sky. 3mo

The past 2 months I have not read nearly as much as I had planned which has frustrated me but I‘m trying to remember that I read because I love to & I shouldn‘t put pressure on myself.
I finished all the winter prompts for #booked2019 & read Hunted as #fairytale & the tagged book for Ireland
The first half I didn‘t love since I struggled to find likable characters but as time went on and they grew and evolved I ended up really enjoying this book

SW-T Very true. Don‘t put pressure on yourself, just read when you can and read what you enjoy to make the time more special 😊📚 3mo

This book has become one of my all-time favorites. I was fully invested and engrossed in the story and all the characters, and I just couldn't get enough of it. Although much of the dialogue is humorous, you will find yourself either furious or crying throughout a lot of the book due to the injustices, torment, and heartbreak the main character suffers over his lifetime. I can't say enough good things about this one. Read it.

DebinHawaii I have had this one in my Kindle for ages and know I need to read it as it gets so much love on here! 😉 4d
rkeo I recommend it to anyone who will hear me. 4d
rkeo Also, if you can get the audiobook, it was even better. I read at home and listened I'm the car, and for the first time in my life, I enjoyed the audiobook as much, or more, than the book. The narrator is an Irish actor, and it added a flare of authenticity I couldn't do myself in my head while I read. 4d

Finally finished this up for the #irishauthor prompt for #booked2019

I enjoyed it. Not sure I loved it like so many other people seemed to - maybe the way the plot seemed kind of choppy was responsible for that. All in all though, it was well written and I‘d read more from this author.

Okay I get why there was so much hype for this one. It made me laugh, cry, get angry, and feel content. It put me through every emotion possible. Oh Cyril Avery you have carved a little place in my heart. I loved how all the characters revolved around each other and then finally came together in the end. Such a great novel. Listed to a good portion on audio because this books weighs a TON. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

The Heart‘s Invisible Furies is unlike any other book I‘ve read. It is an extremely valuable book, in that it gives a full historical perspective of homosexuality. It takes the reader by the hand and gives a full walk-through... and personally for me, a few slaps on the face and explanations that completely changed my views on how I treat people.

I absolutely loved this story of Cyril Avery, told in seven year installments from his birth until his old age. Heartbreaking and very funny at the same time, it lived up to my expectations as I‘d heard quite a bit about it beforehand. This is one of those books that will cause a book hangover for sure as I‘ll miss Cyril and the other colorful characters in this book. This was my H book for #litsyatoz2019.

My kids put this magnet in my stocking this Christmas, and they did so because of books like this. This marvel shreds you through rage, heartbreak, & laughs. This is the life journey from conception through the next 70 years of one man; expect to be deeply attached. It spans WWII Catholic-ruled Ireland to 2015 Reformation Ireland, winding a painful path of bigotry to progress. #Booked2019 #Irish @Cinfhen @4thhouseontheleft @BarbaraTheBibliophage

I finished this, but didn‘t review it because I thought it was good—really good—but not great. 🙈 I enjoyed the characters and the story never failed to hold my interest. The writing is solid. But somehow, I just felt like I was a child being led along by a professorial parent. Things were overexplained, there was too much foreshadowing, and there were enough minor inconsistencies as to be irksome. It‘s a beautiful story, but didn‘t rock my world.

saresmoore @batsy I like it when books make me work to draw my own connections and conclusions. I want to live in the story, not watch it unfold from a safe distance. 5mo
saresmoore @Cathythoughts I think it touches on a lot of really valid issues and provides a unique perspective, but I felt like it skated over too many of those issues. I wanted the main character or the story itself to commit to something and neither ever really did. 5mo
saresmoore @Leftcoastzen It was very engrossing and not overly sentimental, but somehow it almost felt too detached for me to connect with it deeply. 5mo

Read this in part via #Audible and also by my physical copy of the book. This had been on my TBR shelf for just over a year and I'm so glad I got around to reading it. All at once, it is heartbreaking and laugh out loud funny - the audio in particular was fantastic as the narrator brought all the characters to life so successfully that I think my enjoyment of the book was enhanced by listening. This will definitely be one of my top books of 2019.

Two current reads have me stumbling over Irish names & places. Some of them just make me giggle—Drumballyroney, Mary-Margaret Muffet.

I‘m loving the tagged book. It‘s an emotional ride, sure, but not sentimental and I appreciate the dark humor.

As for my progress on the massive Brontë family biography, let it be an indicator that I‘m just now emerging from Irish territory and Patrick (the father) left Ireland in his 20‘s. ?
