The Vanishers | Heidi Julavits
11 posts | 16 read | 13 to read
From acclaimed novelist and editor of The Believer Heidi Julavits, comes a wildly imaginative novel about grief, female rivalry, and the furious power of a daughter's love. Julia Severn is a talented student at an elite institute for psychics. When Julia's mentor, the legendary Madame Ackerman, grows jealous of her protge's talents, she subjects Julia to the painful humiliation of reliving her mother's suicide . . . and then launches a desperate psychic attack. But Julia's gifts, though a threat to her teacher, prove an asset to others. Soon she's recruited to track down a missing person who might have a connection to her mother. As Julia sifts through ghosts and astral clues, everything she thought she knew about her mother is called into question, and she discovers that her ability to know the minds of others--including her own--goes far deeper than she ever imagined.

This was just hard to follow and didn‘t keep my interest the whole way through. It was strange but not in a way that made me want to keep reading. Interesting concept, I just didn‘t care for the writing at all.

Our local bookstore does this really cute thing where they take there sale books, wrap them in cute paper and write a little blurb about them on the front. What a great idea! #books #dateabook #booksurprise #localbookstore

Wow, this wasn‘t really what I was expecting. Psychic attacks and surreal phenomena.... I‘ll admit I was confused and not always sure what was going on, but it kept pulling me back in.

L_auren This was so strange 😳 5y

Loved it. Totally not for everyone, but it really connected with me. Beautiful writing, intricate and twisty plot.

This book is so odd, yet it's sucking me in and I'm in love with it. Also, who hasn't wanted to say this at some point??

By the end, I was loving this. I loved the beginning too. There were moments in the middle where I wasn't loving all the plottiness, but overall, this is a super-smart exploration of mothers and daughters, memory and identity.

CherylDeFranceschi I really enjoyed that book. Crazy, smart and crazy smart. 6y
RebeccaH Ha, yes, excellent summary @CherylDeFranceschi 6y

It's been awhile since I listened to an audiobook but I am in the mood again. And since I loved The Folded Clock so very much, I thought I'd give Julavits's fiction a try.

CherylDeFranceschi This book is so weird and smart and wonderful! 6y
RebeccaH Great! I'm enjoying it so far @CherylDeFranceschi 6y

Of course I left out a day after all that!

Day 24: books + stationery

This is my journal that I use to track my monthly TBR and books read. I've never read this book, because I bought it only because of the cover. I don't even know what it's about!
