review Disappearance Disappearance Free download È 5 David Dabydeen Û 5 review Ship with the old woman with whom he lodges Learning about the village's history through his relationship with Mrs Rutherford the narrator discovers that underlying the village's Englishness. Disappearance is the rather morose tale of a young engineer from Guyana who travels to the English coast to build a sea wall and in turn discover something about the country that held his captive for so long and the people who inhabit it It s a good premise for a book but I struggled to get on with the characters The engineer builds a brief relationship with Mrs Rutherford his landlady who spent time in after and suffered at the hands of her unfaithful husband She however is depicted in such a wooden fashion and the engineer is so over earnest that it s difficult to really feel for their stories Indeed Mrs Rutherford only really comes to life through the words of others such as Christie the Irish labourer The whole read felt a little stifled a little detached and so the carefully considered revelations stimulated little in the sense of emotion as I read them Not one of the best novels by a long way Three Railway Engines young engineer from Guyana who travels to the English coast to build a sea wall and in turn discover something about the country that held his captive for so long and the people who inhabit it It s a good premise for a book but I struggled to get on with the characters The engineer builds a brief relationship with Mrs Rutherford his landlady who spent time in after and suffered at the hands of her unfaithful husband She however is depicted in such a wooden fashion and the engineer is so over earnest that it s difficult to really feel for their stories Indeed Mrs Rutherford only really comes to life through the words of others such as Christie the Irish labourer The whole read felt a little stifled a little detached and so the carefully considered revelations stimulated little in the sense of emotion as I read them Not one of the best novels by a long way

review Disappearance Disappearance Free download È 5 David Dabydeen Û 5 review Is a latent violence that echoes the imperial past forcing him to not only reconsider his perceptions of himself and his native Guyana but also to examine the connection between land and memo. Very enjoyable short novel about Britishness as seen by a visitor to England It looks to the past and to the future and gets uite philosophical at times which really hit the spot as far as I am concerned The basic story of an engineer from Guyana overseeing works on coastal protection I found less accessible being a bit technical for me but also uite symbolic for the idea of the erosion of national identity Well written and worn reading
