Whistle in the Dark | Emma Healey
post image
Mehso-so

Not easy to rate. It's not a mystery/thriller so much as an exploration of how inter-generational mental illness impacts upon family relationships. In the doing it makes for characters (people!) who are not easy to warm to. Emma Healey crafts a fine sentence and the varying chapter lengths emphasise the fractured, on/off mother/daughter relationship. It's good but I wasn't struck by the ending and all-in-all I found it a bit... unrelenting.

There's something about October weather that brings on a hankering for Victorian gothic! This has been compared to "The Woman in White" but reminded me more of du Maurier's "My Cousin Rachel". The setting and atmosphere are great, allowing the intriguing beginning to draw me in. Unfortunately, several interesting storylines were introduced but not developed and the main plot took a turn which, by the end, was a bit silly. Starts well: ends meh. 3*

Read for my library book club.
It's good: Belinda Bauer is a safe pair of hands (if that's not an entirely ridiculous thing to say of a crime writer!) but I'm perplexed by its inclusion on last year's Booker Prize longlist: "fiction at its finest"? For one thing I thought the motive was rather weak, and it's not especially ground-breaking. However, Jack is a great character and the story moves at a cracking pace and kept me thoroughly entertained.

TrishB I was perplexed too - love Bauer but not prize winning here. 1w
Cathythoughts I really enjoyed this one too & loved Jack 👍🏻♥️ 1w

Black mud, brackish water, foxes, eels, hunger and desire! As with Everything Under, there's the feeling of a myth running beneath these stories and unifying them, although here that myth remains submerged throughout and never quite breaks the surface. It all adds up to a collection of strange and unsettling stories that some irresistible impulse had me reading aloud to myself beneath my breath. A fantastic read of an October night!

Dark Matter | Blake Crouch

Great premise: who hasn't wondered at some point "What if I'd done X instead of Y?" and I like to think about parallel worlds now and then. Also there's the hugely important message about appreciation. But then halfway through it got all Jason-Bourne-meets-Enid-Blyton's-Magic-Faraway-Tree and went downhill from there. And I'm not at all happy that Daniela (MC's wife) ended up as a prize to be fought over/competed for.

kathedron In fairness, Daniela does object to being "raffled off like a fruit basket" but a good few pages have gone by before it occurs to any of the Jasons that maybe she should get to choose which one she wants to be with. 3w

Whereas I feel like he's just done an info-dump on me.
So now I must wonder, is this a male fantasy/delusion (that women are turned on by this kind of behaviour) or is it a parallel world? (It sure as hell isn't mine.)

Lcsmcat I vote for your first theory. 3w
rwmg Well, I can only speak for myself of course, but I still find it hard to believe that not everyone is interested in general knowledge trivia and doesn't see nice shiny snippets of fact as gifts - and not directed specifically at women (or in my case, men). 3w

I wasn't expecting to like this, much less to read it in a day! The hype led me to expect it to be more flippant: it's not without humour but I found it sharp rather than darkly comic. Despite the title it's Korede's book, the plain elder sister whose cultural and personal upbringing predetermine her to look out for gorgeous Ayoola. Is Ayoola really the villain of the piece, though, or is it the family, in which violence is perpetrated and hidden?

I struggled to connect with Celie at first because she's so resigned to the horrendous things that happen to her and her family. Her letters to God read like she's filing police reports: just the facts, ma'am; none of your emotive commentary. As I got used to her voice, and as she grew into herself, it was increasingly difficult to put her story down. It's a tough read but, goodness, I wasn't expecting it to contain such deep abiding joy as well!

Three Poems | Hannah Sullivan

I've got tickets to go and hear her read!
Three long-form poems: "You Very Young in New York", "Repeat Until Time", and "The Sandpit After Rain". Both autobiographical and philosophical, exploring the paradoxical nature of time as simultaneously linear and circular (and the habit the events of our lives have of happening out of sync.) It's a collection that I admired rather than loved, but there's much to appreciate.

Wide Sargasso Sea | Jean Rhys

Read it years ago but this BBC radio version was my latest cardio-workout partner.
Antoinette is the daughter of former slave owners in the Caribbean. She has no sense of belonging anywhere, nor of basic safety. Then along comes Mr Rochester (yes, him!) to marry her for her money. It's something of a conundrum, the book comes across as fragmented and disorienting as Antoinette's mental state inevitably becomes. I'm just not sure how deliberately.

kathedron I'm none the wiser as to why Mr R insists on calling her Bertha, but I want to punch him in the teeth on account of it. 1mo

Some books are mirrors: others are windows. For me, this is a window-book. It tells the stories of 12 people, predominantly women, predominantly of colour, of diverse social standing, all with connections to eachother in some way. I loved its vibrancy! It did verge on preachy from time to time but pulled it back with an ending that was entirely satisfying. I'm happy to see it on the #bookerprize shortlist.

Lost Children Archive | Valeria Luiselli

Where do I start with this self-consciously erudite, slow-paced, "thinky" book? I loved it. No, it's not "right" that the telling of the sad break-up of a marriage and young family foregrounds that of the suffering of refugee children. Yet here we are. I liked the structural echoes. I liked the characters' anonymity. I liked the parent/child relationships. Mostly I liked pondering what she was driving at in the pursuit of echoes of lost things.

Bearing in mind that the MC is dead before the first page even drops, it's a book that celebrates vitality and, considering the shitty life experiences that Leila and her band of warmhearted social misfit friends go through, it has remarkable joie de vivre. I loved the first part, then, but what to make of the second half? I enjoyed getting to know Leila's friends better but the plot went abruptly off-road into the hinterlands of broad farce.

Miss K and I went to see the final part of Bristol Museum and Art Gallery's Japanese print exhibition: nature and seasons.

This is "Autumn Moon at Ishiyama Temple" where Murasaki is said to have begun "The Tale of Genji" on the night of the full moon of the 8th month of AD 1004.

Ugh, just NO!
Interesting themes (AI, its parallels with Frankenstein, machine learning, personhood) and I liked the Shelleys' sections. The contemporary bits are a hot mess of ideas spouted by infuriating "characters": vulgarian Ron Lord; superior Victor Stein pontificating while fetishizing Ry's body.
Is the single entendre a thing? The brain is not the primary organ here!
AI? I've little faith in *human* intelligence on this showing.

I'm a hundred pages in, now, and (predictably enough) am enjoying the bits with the Shelleys and really disliking the bits with the sexbots. What's the verdict, dear Littens? Shall I persevere? #bookerprizelonglist

Emilymdxn I‘m just getting to the end of this one now and I‘ve found it worth reading though I feel the same as you about the different plots. The characters from the sexbot plot do keep being big presences but there‘s less in the way of ‘here are some sexbots‘ going forward. I think the Shelleys plot makes it worth it personally. Tw for quite sudden sexual violence I wasn‘t expecting in the modern plot later on 2mo

I'm not convinced this is entirely successful (it has that "just missed" feeling) but it was hard to put down and I'll be thinking about it for some time.
What makes us human? Is it the need to tell our stories and have them witnessed? (Does that mean we are less human when we cannot do so?) And/or is it our apparent inability to inhabit the present moment without under-layering it with a remembered past we can't let go of? Intriguing stuff!

A summer's re-enactment of Iron Age life, my stomach was clenched from start to finish. The women forage, cook, and wash clothes while (Molly aside) condoning (from fear and habit) the physical and emotional violence meted out to them. The men are too busy indulging macho fantasies and sparring for dominance to contribute much of use before bonding when the "experiment" goes full-on Lord of the Flies. It's not really about the Iron Age, is it?

Experiential archaeology student Molly is talking to teenager Silvie about her professor (Jim) and about Silvie's dad. They're living as the ancient Britons did, or in accordance with Silvie's dad's notions of what that was which (surprise, surprise!) involves curtailing the women's freedoms, spouting off about racial purity, sulking whenever the professor contradicts him and taking it out on the women. How very contemporary!

I enjoyed this! Maud has dementia and nobody listens when she tells them her friend has gone missing. But is it really Elizabeth she is fretting about? With moments of great poignancy and flashes of humour, Healey still allows this to be a dark tale at heart: it's never twee (it's no "My Grandmother..."). There is necessarily a fair amount of repetition at sentence level, but I rather liked the reverberations of birds, lipstick, marrows and all!

Ooof! In a very similar vein to Khaled Hosseini's "A Thousand Splendid Suns" (you have been warned!) parts of this book are brutal but it's the matter-of-fact way in which Weili/Winnie tells her story that makes it so devastating. Wen Fu is all the more horrendous for not being introduced as a fully-fledged villain but rather growing steadily more deplorable as the story progresses.
Does anyone write the mother/daughter dynamic quite like Amy Tan?

Heady stuff! I first read this at age 20 (borrowed from my then girlfriend) and nostalgia got the better of me when I saw this copy in Waterstones. Hmmm... I like it less now than I did before. The writing is either luscious or overblown, depending on your view, and there is something at once beautiful and monstrous in Smart's giving of herself wholesale to this great love of hers, the misery of it no less than the ecstacy, and expressing it so.

Amazon freebie. Not my usual fare, but I wanted an easy read for a change.
The writing was nothing special and the plot points were visible from space. Veronica's decisions were absurd: yes, she wants to wrap her young daughter in cotton wool but *really*?! But I wanted undemanding and I got undemanding. It felt a lot like reading The Girl on the Train: if you liked that you might like this. Evidently this kind of thing is not for me, though.

Rather wonderful! Arguably, some of the shorter pieces might be more accurately called situations rather than stories. On the other hand I appreciated the absence of gender-markers in many stories, leaving things open to reader interpretation. The collection as a whole is a word-nerd's dream! It focuses on the oddities and limitations of language in the minds and lives of verbally-compulsive characters. It's clever but playful. One to be re-read.

I adored "To the River" and was expecting something in a similar vein here. She does write about her own loneliness (as distinct from solitude) when adrift in New York but it's primarily about artists and the work made from their experience of social isolation and/or exclusion. No doubt I'd have enjoyed it more if I were already familiar with the artists and their work (she's made me want to look up David Wojnarowicz now). I do love her writing.

For bookgroup. I can see why this is popular: strong characters, emotion, a moral dilemma. And it follows the formula of making the characters want something, preventing them having it and seeing how they respond. I enjoyed it until I lost interest towards the end when the emotion turned to outright flailing. Most days I'd lean towards a so-so (don't like blatant attempts at plucking my heartstrings) but it was a good holiday read so it's a pick.
