review A Summer of Drowning

read ☆ eBook or Kindle ePUB Ç John Burnside John Burnside Ç 3 free read review A Summer of Drowning Lla testa al posto dei pensieri Nella fantasia popolare i troll sono mostri e la huldra una fata che vestita di rosso danza nei prati in attesa di giovani uomini da ammaliare e distruggere ma nella memoria di Kyrre sono forze maligne all'origine di accadimenti reali Con una tazza di caffè tra le mani Liv ascolta incantata e tremante i racconti del suo vecchio vicino di casa In cuor suo tuttavia non crede affatto all'esistenza di tali forze o esseriL’estate però in cui la ragazza compie 18 anni accadono eventi così letali da sradicare le più solide e ferme convinzioniMats e Harald Sigfridsson due fratelli dai capelli chiarissimi così inseparabili da apparire simili come due gocce d’acua trovano uno dopo l’altro la morte nello stesso identico modo sgattaiolando di casa in una tranuilla notte di luna avviandosi verso la r. I had high hopes for this novel but was sorely disappointed It is a suspense novel without any real suspense It is a novel about myth without any magic The narrator reveals her perceptions and then immediately gives away the flaws in her perceptions by not so much foreshadowing as forestorytelling therefore undoing any tension in the narrative There is a lot of unnecessary repetition particularly regarding the deep thoughts read annoying rhetorical uestions of the teenage narrator The magic that the author tries to conjure in the last 100 pages seems forced because there has been a conscious effort to deny magic through the rest of the book All in all I felt really disconnected from the events and characters in this book and it was a chore to finish it

My first John Burnside book He is an extremely talented writer and write novels poems and memoirs This book had an interesting story and some beautifully crafted poetic sentences It was a little repetitive in places but I think this effect mirrored the way memory works going over and over an incident or event The effect it had on this reader is not really knowing what happened and what was memory and creative memory The book is about the power of stories and storytelling and myth and folklore and how these can inform a troubled mind The last couple of pages are beautiful and packed with truth Here is an example I just need to know where everything is and then when I am sure to make a little space for the mystery There are several ideas in this novel merit discussion Perhaps as the light falls with a dram in hand and the company of a few good friends
