Books Read in Apr 2011
1-Apr-11 Mr. Chartwell by Rebecca Hunt (nook)
A somewhat mad book, but with delicious writing style. Depression is like a black dog. What if it were an actual big black dog?
Quotes from the book:
I’m a specialist. I provide specific services for varying lengths of time to specific individuals.
Our time together is a tourniquet of wire around my head, but it never leaves me so mentally destitute that I would allow myself to be led by you.
"I'm reading". This was a tart and clear instruction to leaver her alone. Shoving the door open, Black Pat burst through like a bowling ball smashing into fresh pins.
Thinking again of tomorrow, he let the crab claws of his imagination make exploratory nips over Monday's agenda, investigating the shape of it.
"The eyes are a window to the soul and I see them all." "In that case your eyes are a derelict staircase leading to a barren landing."
It's an enduring bruise on my conscience that our vile alliance has had such impact upon her. I worry about the sacrifices she has made for me, aware that I can't hope to replay them, and the gratitude terrifies me. It devours me.
That is Johnnie Walker Red Label, an exemplary blended Scotch. And not a drink I would offer to you. I'd rather use it to kill my plants."
4-Apr-11 The Art of Racing in the Rain by Garth Stein (nook)
A simple, beautiful, and heartwarming tale, of a man, his dog and his family, and about the art of racing in the rain. This is one of the best books I have read so far this year, and I say this as someone who has never watched the Grand Prix, and doesn't even have a driver's license.
Quotes from the book:
I admire the female sex. The life makers. It must be amazing to have a body that can carry an entire creature inside. ( I mean, other than a tapeworm, which I've had. That doesn’t count as another life, really.)
For me, a good story is all about setting up expectations and delivering on them in an exciting and surprising way.
Grandparents are like that. Grandparents are convinced they're better parents than their own kids, whose lives they've already fucked up.
"You'll be all right? We don’t have to worry about the gas oven being left on and you lighting a cigarette or something?"
"It's electric. And I don't smoke."
Success at any endeavor on an elite level demands selfishness.
Many of us have convinced ourselves that compromise is necessary to achieve our goals, that all of our goals are not attainable so we should eliminate the extraneous, prioritize our desires, and accept less than the moon.
There is no dishonor in losing the race. There is only dishonor in not racing because you are afraid to lose.
I pieced together those days as one conjures a partially completed jigsaw puzzle - the frame is finished, the corners filled in, but handfuls of the heart and belly are missing."
7-Apr-11 John Russel 03 Stettin Station by David Downing
The third part of this amazing four part series about a British-American journalist living in Berlin during WWI, who gets drawn into reluctant espionage in spite of himself.
But this time round, I found myself comparing Downing's writing with that of Sarah Blake. In The Postmistress, Blake brought the war home in a way Downing somehow hasn’t. But Downing is definitely, definitely worth a read!
15-Apr-11 Swamplandia! by Karen Russell (nook)
Coming of age books are really really not my cup of tea. And Russell's constant use of quirky adjectives and adverbs seems to be vivid narration at first but becomes merely tedious a few chapters into the book - there is the sense of stretching out a thin plot over a large number of pages. Plus there's a vein of cynicism running pretty deep for a supposedly 10 year old narrator. Fond as I am of ghosts and crocodiles, I still can't say I really liked this book. And the exclamation mark appearing after each and every mention of Swamplandia bugged me very very much.
All in all I'd say this would have been a fun quirky book.... except that it was about 200 pages too long. I did like the bits with Kiwi though, with its spectacularly vivid moments of human truths. And no, I didn't guess the truth about the Bird Man. Not once.
Quotes from the book:
When the Chief put an asterisk next to something, it meant that he was only telling you the best part of the truth. The asterisk, the Chief taught us, was the special punctuation that God gave us for neutralizing lies.
Eight days later, Grandpa bit a man. On his face and neck, mostly.
Every day, Kiwi's colleagues taught him what you could and could not say to another person here on the mainland. This was a little like having snipers tutor you on the limits of the prison yard.
Leonard Harlblower was a park greeter, a loud, obnoxious young man who would probably go through life disliked by everyone he met and never know it.
Kiwi was paying city and state taxe
Interior of the Tower Tomb of Elhabel (Elabel)
The ground floor of the tower tomb built in 103 AD by four brothers:
Elabel, Shagai, Mogimo, Maani: sons of Wahballat son of Maani.
There are busts of these four founding brothers on the northern wall.
The tower tomb consists of a lower ground floor accessed via a door at the northern side, above this is the principal ground floor, accessed via a door to the south, and an additional two stories above. On each floor the long side walls contain deep recesses set between engraved pilasters with Corinthian capitals. In these recesses the dead would have been stacked upon shelves. Large tower tombs such as this could accommodate up to 300 bodies. The recesses for the dead were sealed with limestone slabs on which portraits of the dead were carved in high relief.
Western Necropolis, Palmyra, Syria.
