I liked the ride on this one a lot though I can t easily predict which friends would be eually pleased There is a lot to be said about trusting a good chef to know what to serve So one should release expectations before cracking this book There is no wondrous Asperger savant kid in this one nor hapless and resilient man with a humorous Walter Mitty like interior monologue Here we get an extended dysfunctional English family actually the families of two siblings thrown together on a holiday in rural Wales and a lot of stream of consciousness among the 4 adults three teenagers and an 8 year old There is little in the way of humor Maybe this doesn t seem a promising premise to many readers but I felt it was uite a powerful slice of life with a lot of heart wisdom and interesting character development The magic for me lies in Haddon s use of nearly eual perspectives from the minds of eight characters Before you object to stream of consciousness writing based on your fill from so many masters of decades gone by you have to admit that if a writer really wants to portray the life of a person they have to at some level emulate the way their mind works And if your inuiry reaches toward what a family means then a book bent on recreation of the symphony of minds could have some attractions for you But where is the grounding in this approach The raw and personalized perceptions the private hurts the poisonous thoughts and the secret desires in this ensemble uickly looks like it will spin this world out of control Yet even though each character is flawed and variously messed up with emotions of jealousy grief guilt lust religious yearnings or despair you name it the whole human nine yards each takes steps either to improve their situation or to vouchsafe a path to continue bumbling along helped along through strife or cooperation with each other It feels a little like development in a terrarium a fertile microcosm of the human raceI appreciated Kingsolver s use of different family voices young and old to tell a tale from different perspectives in her Poisonwood Bible There is some of that same pleasure in this book for me In both books when dark private realities come to light there is eventually a surprising broad convergence on mutual understanding For example a mother obsesses over a stillborn child from 18 years ago and how it drives her to imagine the daughter alive and growing in the present Her living daughter struggles to come to terms with her lesbian leanings and the undermining of her fundamentalist faith Despite the tenuous nature of the family bonds and their limited doses of moral courage the secrets are digested by the family and taken in stride Haddon seems to be revealing how a family as a whole can be than the sum of its parts I understand how some readers can be frustrated with a bit of a game Haddon plays when he doesn t always identify the character who lies behind a particular thought process he unfurls In Woolf s Mrs Dalloway or Joyce s Ulysses you didn t have such challenges And sometimes an omniscient observer breaks through which some might judge to detract from the realism of the immersion I think these devices lighten the load a bit in the same way the Wizard of Oz did when he punctured Dorothy s desperate bubble Here are a couple of examples or maybe they are from the mind of one of the characters some scholar could enlighten me One person looks around and sees a universe created by God who watches over its long unfurling marking the fall of sparrows and listening to the prayers of his finest creation Another person believes that life in all its baroue complexity is a chemical aberration that will briefly decorate the surface of a ball of rock spinning someone among a billion galaxies And the two of them could talk for hours and find no great difference between each other for neither set of beliefs makes us kinder or wiser Time speeds upA day becomes an hour becomes a minute becomes a second Buildings inhabit the earth growing like spores sending out tubers seeding new towns new villages new cities till they all are drowned in sand or jungle Hope is no wondrous Asperger savant kid What Is Gnosticism?
