download The Fifth Child review ✓ The Fifth Child Doris Lessing ´ 3 review Urge the Lovatts are certain that their old fashioned contentment can protect them from the world outside until the birth of their fifth baby Gruesomely goblin like in appearance insatiably hungry abnormally strong and violent Ben has nothing innocent or infant like about him As he grows older and terrifying Harriet finds she cannot love him David. All Harriet and David Lovatt ever wanted was a happy marriage and a big house filled with children For a few years things played out their way four great kids and a house that virtually glowed with warmth and love It was not until Harriet s next pregnancy that darkness begins its inevitable descent The fifth child produced seems to be a different breed altogether What better hiding place than inside a mother s womb I m sure all babies are different but this one is unsettling in the extreme Very strong and with a voracious appetite he frightens his siblings and causes a rift between his parents that may be impossible to mend

download The Fifth Child review ✓ The Fifth Child Doris Lessing ´ 3 review Cannot bring himself to touch him and their four older children are afraid of him Understanding that he will never be accepted anywhere Harriet and David are torn between their instincts as parents and their shocked reaction to this fierce and unlovable child whose existence shatters their belief in a benign world From the Trade Paperback edition. This novel was disturbing on so many levels It was supposed to have started out with this great couple who had all these wonderful family ideals until the fifth child came along who was really tough to take and basically a commentary on society s reaction to such a different child However I never saw the couple as having a great marriage The only testament to any sort of greatness I guess would be their coupled desire to have a lot of children Simply because their house was constantly filled with free loaders didn t imply to me that their family was so greatAnd when the fifth child came along where was everyone Not only where the parents willing to throw this child away but everyone suddenly disappeared right when they could have used some support This book is a horrible example of familyThe other main thing that bothered me was the parents conclusion toward the end of the book that their fifth ch
