How Jasper likes to wake up and cuddle dad!
I feel like I missed half the story by not understanding the Japanese "creatures" they kept mentioning. Lack of depth and clarity of understanding ruined the enjoyment. I'm sure if you knew the culture, this would make much more sense. I also couldn't connect with the characters- they kept pointing out how they were tropes in a horror story and basically enacted these roles which made them very 2D.

Started on the 24th and just finished so pretty engaging, I'd say! I thought I wasn't in the mood for this story and then boom! I was hooked and just wanted to know more about the vamps, witches, ghouls, etc!
I am really glad that it is in fact a series. Can't wait for more!
Also, I quite enjoyed the narration.
Oh and usually I never do this, but I thought if this were turned into a movie Kate Winslet should play Greta.

Thank goodness I had this audio to keep me company through the MOST wretched thunderstorm as I drove to my friend's wedding yesterday!
I watched the series a bit ago and enjoyed it so thought I'd probably enjoy the book. I definitely did! The series definitely veers from the book so the book is still full of surprises and arguably more twisted than the show. I'm pretty sure in both book and show Francis is my favourite☺️

I started this yesterday as I was needing distraction and it proved captivating enough to steal me away for a bit. Today, with a certain reveal in the narrative I was a little triggered and upset but it is a beautiful story.
I did expect the "twist" at the end, but still, give it a thumbs up. Various things did make me question if I was right.

robinb Have you seen the movie? Just wondering if it veers off from the book. 3w
Andrea4 @robinb I'm going to watch it now ...I have heard it's not nearly as good but since it has Idris Elba, still worth the watch 😜 3w
robinb @Andrea4 Agreed! ❤️ I love both him and Kate Winslet. Would love to hear your thoughts. 😊 3w

Andrea4 @robinb me too- I'll keep you updated 3w
Andrea4 @robinb ok. Watched it. It was not very good. My bf watched it too (not knowing book) and was unimpressed. So many things were changed from the book from names to plot points and characterizations! Not a big deal if the movie was good but it was meh. 3w
robinb Bummer! Another case of the book being better than the movie... 3w
Andrea4 @robinb yea! Honestly I don't mind if they are different because both can be good in their own right but yea, movie just didn't hold up. 3w
robinb @Andrea4 I agree. I often come away liking both but in different ways. 3w

This is the second time I've tried with this book. The first time I gave up faster. This time, well I just don't want to pick it back up. I don't know if anyone else felt this way but the sibling who's focused on for the first bit at least, Simon, just irritates the hell out of me. I'm sure the focus will change but I guess my brain isn't willing to sit through it.

This is probably somewhere between a pick and so so. I was pretty captured for the first little while and then I just really wanted "to know". But the end fell flat for me. The climax seemed to just pass by & then I was disappointed with it. Tbh I really thought there was some sub plot going on with Deckland that 110% I was there for! Lol I'm sure you could read that in a number of ways given the way the author made Jax unreliable.

"my body was a problem"
I'm walking and listening with some tears in my eyes because I don't know any woman who hasn't felt this way. Maybe not specifically in the context of X, i.e. being sexualised by men at a young age when it is unwanted, but just in general. How young we get taught that our bodies are problems to always be fixed, tweaked, solved, worked on, etc. That's just fuckin' sad.

Gratuitous "sad" puppy photo.
This book was interesting, not the best, but definitely enough to keep you interested. A few times I was worried it would get a little too gorey but it stops just before that line (for me anyway). I feel like I at least half knew what the outcome of this was going to be and also that my compassion for pretty much all the characters was low, minus one or two.

Still a pick though of all the Highsmith I've read it wasn't my favourite. This time I was more annoyed and put off by the constant inner monologues (whining? Lol) of the main male characters.
I do love how Highsmith so deftly gives the reader a clear picture of what is happening while simultaneously revealing how her twisted main characters (mis)perceive things.

Someone was being very sucky and needing attention while mom puzzled and listened to this audiobook. 🐕
Third Siddons and I still like the House one best, but this was second. She can really write about friendships and develop characters (and atmosphere/settings) well.
Also this one had one hell of a plot twist I was not expecting and one I feel points towards another genre she could have written in.

Why show the audiobook when you can show the puppy??!! Lol
Also, not really anything good to say about this book. The narrator's trauma/memories situation seemed very superficial and fake, the "twist" at the end may as well have been "aliens landing and did it" b/c it was so unconnected which also means you have to suffer through the evil villain's step by step break down of how they did it. Also the epilogue? Is this going to be a series? Pass.

FantasyChick You have more discipline than me. I couldn't even make it to the half way mark on this one. Also...ALWAYS show puppy pictures!!!! 😍😍😍 4mo
Andrea4 @FantasyChick LOL honestly it probably did help that I was walking him most of the time so my attention was split; should have clued in to why it didn't seem like I was missing anything hahahha! At the twist, I almost literally threw my hands up and returned it right then and there! 4mo

First, how can anyone get any reading done with THIS FACE staring at you??!!
Ok, so being on walks with a puppy, I was interrupted/distracted a lot. Still, I knew what was going on so I feel that says something about how it dragged, it felt like nothing "got anywhere." And I felt really no suspense, or horror, fright, etc.
And then it just got weird, and kind of confusing. More below ⬇️

Andrea4 And I know there was classicist and feminist discussions in this but they felt contrived and also then confused within themselves (especially when talking about the power dynamics). Anyway, probably unpopular opinion but I just didn't get that lovely gothic vibe. 4mo

Walking around with this fool today- who super enjoyed the snow but is still wary of strong winds (among other things).

The main character picks up this book to read and I haven't heard his book mentioned since 4th year undergrad, more than a decade ago! My copy of this book states it was first published in 1976 though, so I'm a little confused how someone in the 50s is reading it.

Leftcoastzen It was originally published in 1937 . The author E E Evans-Pritchard died in 1973.Sometimes those reprint editions don‘t have the most accurate publishing history inside. 4mo
Andrea4 @Leftcoastzen thanks :) I wondered if it was a mistake in my edition because I couldn't imagine the author not looking into that. 4mo
Leftcoastzen You‘re welcome. Metaphysical and magic reprints seem to not work as hard to get publishing history correct. 4mo

Author's epilogue pushed it to a pick. I didn't realise how deeply personal this is to the author nor that actual cases are discussed (yes, sometimes I go in fairly blind). That said, I did find that the narrator's inner dialogue was peppered far too liberally with questions that drove me a little insane. I also was annoyed by her supreme authoritative view on all matters re: victims/survivors even if I agreed with a lot of it.

So characters just got to the "master bedroom" and the one asks, so am I sleeping in the "slave quarters"? They both pause and finally main character asks if that's where that term comes from.
Fun fact: this is why on listings in Ontario, Canada (not sure if all Canada) now use "primary" instead of the word "master".

Well, that's done!
Absolutely great! This is that kind of supernatural mystery that makes you wonder- it is really happening or has fear just unwound a few people? It's filled with shocking events but nothing is gruesomely detailed. It does not rely on that sort of horror for its suspense.
Do you ever just have a feeling about a place?
Bonus, I thought this narrator was fantastic!

Still really enjoying this- never heard of this author before yesterday and I'm pretty sure I'll take a gander at her other works. Also this narration is on point, at least IMO.
But a note, a work written in 1978 about affluent (mostly white) people in southern USA undoubtedly comes with particular tones and views. The first most table is in regards to homosexuality. However, treated not as badly as one might expect?

Andrea4 @robinb well that's still a positive review! Also, as only a southern-ontarian (hahaha) I enjoy stories set in southern USA. Especially when they come with insights and perceptions about the people therein :) 7mo
robinb @Andrea4 👍 I enjoy most US southern stories as well (surprise! 😂). And if I‘m remembering correctly I think her books reminded me a little of Dorothea Benton Frank‘s…another good writer, hers mostly set in South Carolina. 7mo

What did I just listen to? It started out pretty decent, maybe a few too many stilted moments of "she thought something seemed fishy here," but still OK. Then the various characters, especially women, all seemed to blend together both because of the narration but also their sheer lack of uniqueness. Then a climax, an end? But no. Last 10% was random twists that didn't make realistic and also were rushed. Maybe it's my mood...

Diffused rain.
This is the only way I can describe this book; it covered multiple stories over many years in a jumping fashion and the whole story seemed understandable from the beginning and yet something foggy hung around it all. It is a story that goes along quietly, there is a hush to it. I felt no flares, no passions, no great urgency. I neither liked it nor hated it.
