The hardest books for me to review are the ones that I objectively think are uite good but that for whatever reason I didn t actually like very much This is one of thoseOn the one hand I want to tell people don t bother with this one it left me feeling very meh On the other I think back on it and it was all very well put together filled with fleshed out characters and uniue ideas and with some parts that bordered on magnificent Maybe if I d been in a different mood maybe if I d paid it attention maybe if I were a little smarter I would have absolutely loved it Who knows In any case I can t think of anything empirical to complain aboutThe big maybe if in this case is Maybe if I were English or knew a bit about England I would have liked this book better I ve never been to the UK never been much of an Anglophile What I know about England has been gleaned from tabloids fiction a childhood spent watching Red Dwarf and Mr Bean and whatever I picked up in high school history class about King So and So and what a jerk he was So the nuanced satire in this book which is largely about foreign imbeciles such as myself and our ignorance and apathy about authentic British culture whooshed right over my head The one thing I can say for myself is that at least I knew there was a whoosh that I had missed something But I still didn t love the bookThe story follows Martha a woman who is too smart and too cynical for her own good at three points during her life Part I is about her childhood and the aftermath of her parents divorce This section which stands alone very well as a short story was the highlight of my experience with the book It s sharp and painful and it gives the reader a rounded understanding of the character s foundation Everything that Martha does later on as an adult and as an old woman makes sense because we ve seen her undergo this childhood traumaIn Part II the longest and meatiest part of the story we see Martha in her late 30 s as she begins working for Sir Jack Pitman a ludicrously pompous business mogul who has a dream He knows that tourists come to England to see historical and cultural landmarks but it s all so inconvenient Everything s so far apart you can t see it all in one day Transportation and money can be confusing historical sites are often dingy or falling apart the English people can be so unwelcoming Tourists want to be dazzled but reality is just so underwhelmingPitman s solution is nothing less than to create a whole new England He buys the Isle of Wight a small island in the English Channel and transforms it into a perfect miniature of everything that England symbolizes except betterAt first his employees and the public assume he s building some kind of patriotic theme park but that s not it at all Pitman s vision is nothing so artificial Although the island is filled with half size reproductions of everything from Stonehenge to Buckingham Palace and its residents are all hired on as actors to portray everyone from Robin Hood to friendly pub patrons Pitman sees it as the real deal Why would anyone want to go to Old England so unfriendly so unwieldy when they could go someplace smaller and accessible that has everything England ever had and but distilled and with the bad bits filtered outSure enough the tourists flock to the island which Pitman dubs England England And it s not just tourists celebrities relocate there landmarks are dismantled and rebuilt there even the royal family is enticed bribed blackmailed whatever to make the island s half sized Buckingham Palace their new home Pitman is shrewd enough to name himself the island s Governor and then to declare independence from Old England citing a centuries old technicality as justification Within a few years Old England is rendered totally irrelevant culturally and economically It s a slum When people say England they now mean England EnglandMartha originally hired on as a professional cynic whose job functions mainly included shitting all over everyone else s ideas uickly rises within the company and ends up overseeing the entire England England project But then things start to go tremendously hilariously awry and Martha is left with the blameSo Barnes s main theme is the uestion of authenticity If England England is a fake and Pitman pontificates elouently throughout the book on why it isn t really why does that matter In all apparent ways it s better than the original Why mourn the fate of Old England other than for nostalgia s sake And if you are feeling nostalgic for Old England why not go to England England It s exactly the same except betterIn Part III Martha now an old woman finally returns to Old England which having spent the last half century in poverty isolation and global irrelevancy has been transformed into a shell of its old self something totally unfamiliar but at the same time something completely innately English It has undergone a different distillation but like England England has become a condensed manifestation of an ineffable Englishness Or maybe not maybe that s the difference between the two Old England has reached an ineffable Englishness while England England is all too effableTo Martha anyway it s somehow just as fake as the island ever was Which is Barnes s entire point and which is depressing as all fuck if only because it rang so true to meThis is one of the most uniue dystopian novels I have ever read I wish Barnes had spent time delving into this faux divide between real and fake rather than spending pages and pages on the corrupt exploits of the fictional royals or Pitman s um very nontraditional sexual proclivities And I wish I had a better grasp of the general English Weltanschauung I kept trying to translate it into American imagining an island full of miniature Statues of Liberty and Mt Rushs and flag waving Uncle Sams but it s just not analogous for so many reasons the ineffable America is not anything like the ineffable EnglandHaving typed up this review I realize I do think highly of this book than I d thought I didn t love the experience of actually reading it but looking back it really was a good book Which is
