My Brother's Keeper | Tim Powers

A supposedly spooky Brontë-esque story.

I think it would have worked better with any no-name family rather than the the Brontës.

Do not expect Brontë-esque prose either.

The Brontes & werewolves - even before starting it, I knew this would be either a triumph or a disaster. It's definitely going to polarise opinion as it's a required taste, but I loved it. I particularly like the way that the author wove actual events into the supernatural narrative, such as when Branwell paints over himself in the portrait of himself & his three sisters. (continued)

OutsmartYourShelf Branwell comes off the worst here as he comes across as petulant, cowardly, & self-centered & I really didn't like him. The others were as you would expect & I felt the author got Emily's character just right. Read it with no preconceptions & no expectations of what a book featuring the Brontës should be like & you may be pleasantly surprised. I thought it was extremely entertaining. 4.5🌟

I wasn‘t sure about this book when I first started it. The combination of the Brontës and werewolves didn‘t really gel for me. So I parked the idea of the Brontës to a certain extent and just went with the flow. I then ended up enjoying it. It‘s an unusual tale and very imaginatively written. I thought their individual personalities shone through very well. It had an exciting plotline and it kept me turning the pages. #Pigeonhole
