The Dumb House | John Burnside
post image
Pickpick

The Dumb House is ostensibly concerned with the soul & where it resides. The novel's narrator, Luke, decides that the soul resides in linguistic ability & he recounts a childhood story about, an ancient experiment to discover where language first forms. Is language innate, or is it acquired? If it is acquired, then how? Only a small portion of the 200 page novel concerns the experiments themselves, the vast majority are occupied with the lead-up👇

vivastory to the disturbing experiments. Luke himself is a cross between Dr. Moreau & Norman Bates. Do I recommend this book? Eh...proceed at your own risk! I will say that in the annals of unsettling & disturbing literature, this deserves to be better known. A couple of months ago I started a letterboxd account because I had been watching a lot of movies recently. I added movies that I had watched over the past few months to my log & rated each one. The 4mo
vivastory only one I was unable to rate was Cronenberg's latest (I still can't rate it). That's how I feel about the Burnside book. 🙃 4mo

Wow! This book was a wild ride! The best so far in the DCI Logan crime series. It was none stop action and I was on the edge of my seat the entire time. Not an eady book to read either. Lots of triggers and not for the faint of heart. However, it was superbly written and the author understands how to keep the reader engaged. It will be hard to top this one. 5⭐

PageShifter Woooow, this looks & sounds amazing O.O O.O 9mo
TheSpineView @PageShifter It was really goog. In fact, the whole series is good. 9mo
PageShifter Oh, there is series 🙈 Now I am even more intrigued 🤓 9mo

My Sister Rosa | Justine Larbalestier

Unsettling and disturbing. Rosa is not like other 10 year olds. Che, her older brother, is convinced she‘s a psychopath and has been balancing protecting her with protecting the world from her but he‘s finding it overwhelming as she gets older and smarter.

I enjoyed My Sister Rosa. The story is about a family who moves from Australia to New York for work. Che feels like he is the only one who know for sure that his little sister is a psychopath. He feels like he always had to be on his toes making sure his sister isnt doing something she isnt suppose to. On top of this story being about siblings it is very much about Che and trying to understand what it is he wants out of this life.

MySharonaK Is there a lot of animal abuse in the book? Cause it sounds interesting but I wanna know cause I can‘t always stomach when that happens 3y
BookNightOwl @MySharonaK there is not a lot of animal abuse but a certain instant keeps coming back up over and over. 3y
MySharonaK @mandi1082 thank you for your answer 3y
