The way this is written takes some getting used to. The book revolves around the disappearance of a 13 year old girl in a rural British village. Each chapter is a year that passes, told by way of the cycle of the seasons, countryside and wildlife. Bubbling away underneath is the mess and mundanity of normal people living life. I can‘t describe how relaxing I found this book to read, but at the same time how drawn into the individual stories I was.

My very first Litsy post was my Brooklyn Book Festival #bookhaul, almost two years ago. I have read three of the four books, but not the book I was the most excited about in the original post -- The Book of Disquiet.

I think I liked the idea more than I liked the actual book. It‘s a book about a town with a tiny sliver of a missing person involved. Nothing is really resolved, you just follow their lives for a bit. It was okay.

Nute I still want to read this but it seems that nobody really likes it.😕 5mo
Godpants @Nute it feels like it‘s a thriller-ish story for people who only read literary fiction. I enjoy a concept novel, but for me it was just a little flat. I‘d love to hear what you think if you check it out! 5mo

This is the second McGregor book I‘ve read and I really like his unusual style - looking at the everyday minutiae of like but with a distanced, distracted air.

Usually I dislike books where there are no ‘answers‘ and when we‘re expected to fill in the gaps, but not in this case.

4.5 ⭐️ - I really want to read it‘s ‘companion piece‘ now - The Reservoir Tapes, which gives the backstories of the characters.

jhod I loved this book! You were able to listen to the reservoir tapes on BBC Sounds as they were recorded for R4 - worth looking to see if they're still there... 9mo
squirrelbrain Ooh thanks @jhod - I‘ll have a look on the app to see if they‘re still there. 9mo
eraderneely I normally struggle to enjoy books where there‘s not much plot, but this book just sucked me in. 9mo

This is an extraordinarily ordinary book. I loved the description and being able to completely be immersed in the village life. However, it is not a fast paced exciting book and the ending had me feeling a bit let down. Mcgregor has an incredibly unique writing style but not my favourite...

The scope of this is so ambitious, but Jon McGregor pulls it off to perfection. Don't expect your usual thriller/mystery about a missing girl - you will be disappointed. What it is, is infinitely more interesting and special.

What a book! It‘s a subversion of the “missing girl” trope. It opens with the search but then takes a birds eye view of the village in the years that follows. I love the way he observes both the characters & ecology-the change in seasons & people‘s lives from a distance. But never veering too far away from the tragedy, which is like a shadow over the village- occasionally letting in light before obscuring it again. Meditative and methodical.

So, this was the other book about a small English village I‘ve been reading the past few days 🙄Nope, it didn‘t work for me. The writing was lovely,but absolutely BORING. I was expecting a mystery about a missing girl and this is NOT that story. Instead it‘s a 13 year cycle of life in a small village with too many characters to keep track of. I feel cheated, I want my hours back. 2/5 stars #StarScrooge

Not sure how I got to this book last night. It‘s not what I was expecting but it‘s haunting and absorbing in a very slow meandering way. A 13 yr old girl disappears from an English countryside town and the book is chronicling it‘s effect on the town‘s citizens. If you skim you‘ll miss tiny little hints and details that I‘m hoping will ultimately lead to the guilty party.

julesG A 'can't skim' book. Oh, I might have to try it. But it's a big might 1y

The Millions Most Anticipated 2018 list tipped me off to this #mystery novel. The author has written a follow-up that launches next month, so I'm doing the prep work!

"Jon McGregor has revolutionized that most hallowed of mystery plots: the one where some foul deed takes place in a tranquil English village that, by the close of the case, doesn‘t feel so tranquil anymore. . . . McGregor‘s writing style is ingenious." ―Maureen Corrigan

BarbaraBB A follow-up to Reservoir 13?? I didn‘t know! 1y
ReadingEnvy Don't see it as a mystery novel because going in with that expectation may let you down. They should never have pitched it that way. 1y
BarbaraBB Reservoir 13 wasn‘t a real mystery novel either, I think, but I love his writing. He writes so well about how people interact and his descriptions of the scenery are great too! Thanks for tagging the book! 1y

The rhythm of life in a small village, the cycles of nature, the stages of grief and the process of tragedy- Jon McGregor is an exceptional author and brilliant observer. This book was a poignant read and stirred up lots of feeling while provoking lots of lush imagery. That said, it dragged in parts and could have been shorter while remaining just as impactful. 3/5

HardcoverHearts Jack from Daunt recommended this to me as well. I didn‘t get it because I have seen it here in the US. Good to know you liked it. 1y
emilyhaldi Nice review 👌🏻 I need to read this! 1y
Caksf @HardcoverHearts I did like it, but I think you will like it even more. Beautiful, lyrical writing.. .. absolutely up your alley. I struggled through the slow patches but understand that the slow pace is part of the overall point! 1y
Caksf @emilyhaldi Thanks! It‘s a slow paced book that almost reads like poetry in some spots. I would definitely say it is driven by the overarching narrative as opposed to any specific plot point if that helps! 1y
emilyhaldi Sounds right up my alley!! 😉 1y

I wanted to share with you the books I bought in Ireland ;) Outside one that has nothing to do with Ireland, they are all about Ireland, or by Irish authors. It's going to be a lot to bring back to the US, especially after going to my French local bookstore (many French books that I want to read, and that are hard to find online or f*cking expensive online...)
While I'll be in France, I'll also try to find an e-reader not affiliated with Amazon.

Guys, I get this is a book of beautiful sentences, and that it shows life progressing slowly, but I didn't love it. I kept putting it down and forcing myself to pick it back up. The last few chapters were easier to appreciate, but I'm glad it's done, and don't think I'd look at it again for at least a decade!

Have been to my book club tonight to discuss this book (still haven‘t finished).
One of the reasons I enjoy book club so much is that the people are very different to me with lots of different backgrounds. They help me see the ‘other side‘ of books.
I‘m definitely enjoying this book more than when I started and the rhythm of it is very soothing.
Two of the group had been to see the author talking, so it was interesting to hear their views.

I actually loved the lyricism of this book, the pastoral descriptions and the way it gives you the impression of glimpses of life caught at the right moment. But at times, it was very hard to keep up with all the characters and I feel that maybe certain parts of the book could be omitted. Although I am a big fan of McGregor's writing, this one didn't impress me as much as I would have hoped.

DannyOlda I totally agree, @Aimeesue. It's definitely not the murder mystery some blurbs make it sound like. Felt alot more like people watching for 13 years. I personally loved it, but could definitely see why some wouldn't. 2y

This book was pastoral and lovely and I enjoyed reading it for the most part. But I just felt like it would never end. I also had a hard time differentiating many of the characters. The teenagers all seemed like the same person and I could never figure out which generation of Jackson the author was talking about in any given sentence. But it was lyrical and I liked the style.

4th author meet this week was Jon McGregor, on the Man Booker long list this year, already has a followup titled Reservoir Tapes a sort of prequel of short stories to this one. Fellow author Teju Cole was an incredibly sweet and observant moderator full of praise and readily convincing me I'd be quick to fall in love with McGregor's style.

My copy is a special edition from Waterstones which thoroughly intrigued the author himself. Good times. 😁
