Carol Topolski è 3 download free download Ð eBook or Kindle ePUB è Carol Topolski Monster Love review ↠ 3 No one in the neighbourhood has seen the Gutteridges' little girl Samantha for months But Brendan and Sherilyn look happier that e. This has all the grace and subtlety of a feature length Daily Mail article The reader is presented with two people who have inflicted the most awful crime on their own child we re told and retold about the crime in gruesome detail Vox pops from friends and family indicated by sweepingly stereotypical regional dialects provide only the barest level of understanding of why the two committed the crime they had troubled childhoods big surprise These sorts of crimes are tragic and disturbing when they actually occur in reality to make one up for amusement without insight is gratuitous at best Plus if the above wasn t bad enough there s also a fairly graphic child rape scene linked to the plot by the barest sliver of necessity

Carol Topolski è 3 download free download Ð eBook or Kindle ePUB è Carol Topolski Monster Love review ↠ 3 Ver so nothing is wrong Is it For the Gutteridges Samantha was just a thing that threatened to worm its way into their perfect lov. I read this one when it first came out when I was 13 14 and going through my look at me I m so edgy and angsty and different from all you other teenagers phase which meant that I couldn t resist a book about a couple who torture and murder their 3 year old child Apparently I still can t and therefore have perhaps not grown out of that disturbing teenage phase because I vaguely remembered this book and wondered what I d think of it now as I suspected my ambivalence came from a feeling of being totally horrified by the languageviolencesex as those were the main things I rememberedIt starts off so well The first 50% is masterfully written disturbing chilling bleak and precise Obviously the subject matter is beyond horrible I suspect that if I ever have children I ll never be able to reread this book because of the descriptions of Samantha Brendan and SherilynLinda s child being locked in a cage Even as a childless 21 year old I ll admit some of those parts did bring me out in a cold sweat Tupolski has a wonderful feel especially for Sherilyn s voice There s even moments of terrible comedy like when Sherilyn and Brendan say that they can t send their cat to somebody else so they put him outside and trust him to find another home they re leaving their daughter to starve in a cage by the way There are also moments of nearly breathtaking insight where Brendan sees a newspaper article in which he is being obviously slammed for being the most horribly abusive parent in the world who never took his daughter s photograph once in her life on top of abusing her starving her and torturing her Does he focus on that Obviously not His big moment of horror comes not from their condemnation but from the horrifying realisation that they have a picture of his and Sherilyn s wedding day The whole book has such a resonant ring of realism complete with the little details of Brendan and Sherilyn s world on the outside It s horrific but also amazing insightful and very very darkUntil it seems Tupolski sends them both to prison and somehow decides she s not gone dark enough Then it all becomes terrible in an entirely different way First of all WHY DID SHERILYN HAVE TO BE A VICTIM OF SEXUAL ABUSE I appreciate that sexual abuse screws you up terribly but I m so sick of every author feeling that they have to make their female villain somehow comprehendible by making them a victim of sexual abuse It s cheap disgusting and personally I think suggesting that sexual abuse survivors become child murdering control freaks is getting really old and really worn While some horrifically famous murderers have had sexually abusive childhoods like Ed Gein or Rosemary West I personally felt that Sherilyn s childhood prior to the big revelation that her dad had molested her was far believable to create such a character her mum is insane after a series of stillbirths drive her over the age that is until she finally has Sherilyn s younger sister a beautiful little girl who suddenly consumes their parents worlds I thought that Sherilyn s hunger for her own home where she could be herself was far adeuately expressed in Marilyn her mother s ramblings about how little sister Anne Marie would beg and beg for Sherilyn s cake from Food Tech for instance always wanting what somebody else had and Marilyn s recollections of all the games she and the social bubbly incredibly popular but thick as a brick Anne Marie used to play Contrast that with the plain mousy precise obsessive Linda with her finicky neatness and determined introversion We did not need the I m a bad person because my dad raped me when I was a child incredibly lame useless and easy plot device trotted out Rape is not easy for the survivor It just isn t Rape should feel problematic and terrible in a narrative because that s what rape is Rape especially of the familial abuse variety is not just some catch all explanation to make us sympathise with a character especially when the characters are nearly always female It s lame sexist and stupid Especially for a book like this I m not kidding when I say that I felt it deflated all the tension There s still something incredibly fascinating and compelling about a novel where the characters are not so much narcissists in the traditional sense but somehow narcissistically mutually obsessed with one another How can Brendan call his wife his goddess when he apparently has no problems with locking his daughter in a cage Why does Sherilyn briefly look so relieved when somebody else does something as simple as wipe her daughter s nose What motivates somebody to torture their child for so long rather than just killing them if they have that i mind and hate them so much Unfortunately once they re in prison all the urgency or real genuine interest goes out of this in part because we already have our answer Sherilyn was raped Well it s no surprise she has problems then is it Brendan was beaten terribly by his father and made to wallow in his own urine by his stepmother You might wonder why I ve chosen to focus on Sherilyn s backstory and not Brendan s in this review because at least Tupolski doesn t think we re so simultaneously naive and voyeuristic to keep the revelation that Brendan was physically abused from us It s not treated like a twist Similarly physical abuse doesn t have the same kind of ring of being eteeeeeernally dragged out as the motivation for Everything You Can Ever Imagine as the sexual abuse of women doesIt gets worse So much worse It s like Tupolski can t recover from this low point Though Brendan and Sherilyn s flashbacks to their time together are as effective as ever she then piles on the nasty and cheap plot devices We meet James James is a serial paedophile rapist and murderer All three We get some really unpleasant flashbacks of him doing his thing too along with the fairly heavy implication that he was sexually abused by his largely unseen mother though that s all about the depth he does have He s meant to be so fantastically pretty that the moment Brendan sees him he wants to kiss his neck Uh I m sorry what We know that Brendan and Sherilyn practice some BDSM stuff but I was pretty weirded out by the sudden introduction of Brendan s apparent bisexuality I guess and this unbearably pretty evil charmer the MINUTE he and Sherilyn are separated We re led to believe that they can t even bear to be separated for a minute because they are always togethernever apart as their rings say I m pretty sure there s some fucking weird and damn offensive subtext here we re never told that Brendan has any interest in men or literally anybody except from Sherilyn because it seems like Tupolski almost suddenly developing bisexuality along with a hankering for a male paedophile is sort of par for the course for Brendan That s without even getting into the descriptions of rapemolestation we get unnecessarily from James s POV Especially laid alongside Sherilyn s memory of being molested by her father it feels highly uestionable and odd It almost reminded me of the thing that Sherilyn references when she says about the trashy magazines with stories like I Fell In Love With My Best Friend s Ferret This felt by the end like one of those magazines Rather than the psychological depth or horror or insight I d wanted to feel and really believed I could feel in the earlier pages there just seemed to be a new disgusting horror on every single page Although I did almost giggle in a choked horrified way when Brendan reads James s novel whose sole plot seems to be raping little girls and then throws him out of the cell in disgust Yeah James even Brendan the guy who built a cage solely keep his little daughter beat her starved her put cigarettes out on her drugged her and caused her to be sick then left her to die I m going solely by memory knows that raping children is wrong That s a lesson for youSo apparently that maybe justifies the ending I m not looking for an easy ending I know there isn t going to be one I m all right with feeling ambivalent feelings towards book characters even two as irredeemably horrible as Brendan and Sherilyn They did nevertheless feel like real characters with control freak tendencies strange character uirks and opinions in between the torturethe murder Until they go to prison and apparently develop superpowers which allow them to hear one another s thoughts I ll be fair to Topolski and say that it was at least inferred a couple of times throughout the book but it turned far too much towards the magical realistic and the love makes everything better for a novel about two such sick horrendous people i don t care if they were raped as children stick your lame and convenient plotting and then to journey towards an ending which has the possibility of a heaven for these two I m trying not to spoil completely but Jesus Christ I could practically hear The Power of Love playing over the ending No thank

Carol Topolski è 3 download free download Ð eBook or Kindle ePUB è Carol Topolski Monster Love review ↠ 3 E For everyone else her story is the stuff of tabloid headlines But this time it's not in a newspaper it's happening right next do. This novel left me with mixed feelings In short it is a story about a couple that has tortured and killed their only daughter They and the people surrounding them look back on these facts At first you don t really know what happened but it becomes clear rather uickly And as I felt appaled of this having happened the story extracts all emotion out of it and leaves only a dry and decaying lump of a novel This is accomplished through the emotional distance in with the chapters are made up off You get someone casting their eye on the whole deal subjectively giving their thoughts and ideas And that s it No connections no story line Just a bunch of witness reports of what has happened and how it could have happened And then I shuddered at the clich s used Why does it always implicate a bad childhood when someone does a thing like this Parents aren t responsible for their children s actions they have a conscience of their own but in here the underlying story is indeed that both of the perpetrators have been abused during childhood psychically and emotionally And this is meaning to be a love story which it kind of is The murder of the little girl isn t center topic in this novel it s a means in which to portray the love Brendan and Sherilyn feel for each other I wouldn t go so far as call it love though feels like obsession And their personal reflections do betray a fondness for such behaviour I didn t like it because I felt like it wasn t up to being real life It all felt black and white Not much actual feeling left to ponder Everyone seemed to ponder the death of the girl and everyone presumably felt the effects it had on their life some in gravely exaggerated form It lacked credibility and lots of it I read in the Acknowledgments that this novel came to be because she wrote a maddening two page essay of the girl s thoughts If she had gone from there it might have been an improvement
