Ghost MacIndoe
Ghost MacIndoe | Jonathan Buckley
1 post | 1 read
Jonathan Buckley's third novel opens with Alexander MacIndoe's earliest memory: a February morning in 1944, in the aftermath of the second wave of German air-raids. Set mainly in London and Brighton, Ghost MacIndoe is the story of the next 54 years of Alexander's life. We meet his glamorous mother and his father, a pioneering plastic surgeon; a traumatised war veteran called Mr Beckwith with whom Alexander works for several years as a gardener and, most important of all, the orphaned Megan Beckwith, whose relationship with Alexander crystallises into a romance in the 1970s. In the wake of his highly praised first two novels, Jonathan Buckley's third miraculously brings into being one simple life and the last sixty years of English history.

This was my #doublespin for May. I started this book, but I was bored. The chapters don't seem to have a lot in common. Just pieces of Macindoe's life as a child. I haven't gotten to the substantial part if there is any. I just didn't feel anything with this book, so I've decided to bail.
