    KINDLE [A Summer of Drowning] When asked to list the types of books I generally enjoy a phrase I've often thrown into the list is 'books about solitary people' In A Summer of Drowning I have found perhaps the ultimate book about solitary people Set on the remote Norwegian island of Kvaløya it features a cast of characters almost universally defined by their independence and solitude The story is narrated by Liv a self confessed loner with no boyfriend or frie

Summary A Summer of Drowning

Read & download Ï A Summer of Drowning ↠ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook Read ´ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook º John Burnside John Burnside º 0 Review Lla testa al posto dei pensieri Nella fantasia popolare i troll sono mostri e la huldra una fata che vestita di rosso danza nei prati in attesa di giovani uomini da ammaliare e distruggere ma nella memoria di Kyrre sono forze maligne all'origine di accadimenti reali Con una tazza di caffè tra le mani Liv ascolta incantata e tremante i racconti del suo vecchio vicino di casa In cuor suo tuttavia non crede affatto all'esistenza di tali forze o esseriL’estate però in cui la ragazza compie 18 anni accadono eventi così letali da sradicare le più solide e ferme convinzioniMats e Harald Sigfridsson due fratelli dai capelli chiarissimi così inseparabili da apparire simili come due gocce d’acua trovano uno dopo l’altro la morte nello stesso identico modo sgattaiolando di casa in una tranuilla notte di luna avviandosi verso la r. I had high hopes for this novel but was sorely disappointed It is a suspense novel without any real suspense It is a novel about myth without any magic The narrator reveals her perceptions and then immediately gives away the flaws in her perceptions by not so much foreshadowing as forestorytelling therefore undoing any tension in the narrative There is a lot of unnecessary repetition particularly regarding the deep thoughts read annoying rhetorical uestions of the teenage narrator The magic that the author tries to conjure in the last 100 pages seems forced because there has been a conscious effort to deny magic through the rest of the book All in all I felt really disconnected from the events and characters in this book and it was a chore to finish it

A Summer of Drowning is one of those books with no real plots but then it doesn t really matter since the plot is not the point The artistAngelika Rossdal and her daughter Liv the narrator live solitary lives in Kval ya an isolated island in Norway Liv now 28 years old recalls the summer she was 18 when there was a spate of four unexplained disappearances Their only neighbour and Liv s only friend is a mysterious old man Kyrre who beguiles Liv with myths particularly about the huldra who seduces young men and leads them to their death Reading this felt like dreaming most of the time in that it s often almost structure less meanders is full of images that the prose brings to the mind these images sometimes visceral in its beauty sometimes terror inducing in that they make you feel out of control The author is a poet which is evident in the lyricism of his prose there are whole paragraphs that I have highlighted It also transports you to a world of imagination and silence you think of the spaces between silences and what exists apart from the bustle of everyday life Through a beautifully illustrative description of the landscape which is also like a character in the novel the author evokes uestions about the mysteries of the natural world away from modern living and about how despite advances in technology man doesn t really see beyond the obvious and cannot unravel or even see the mythical and mystical since he has lost the ability to do soI have always loved books about uiet lives and this is a book for those who love their alone time and a vast space not filled with people Liv is definitely my kindred spirit in her desire to break away from the norms that define societal structures and from the ordinary and the everydayThe landscape at times achingly beautiful starts to seem menacing when Liv starts to see and believe Kyrre about the huldra having been responsible for the disappearances The real world becomes less real than the myths that start to come to life I am not a big fan of magical realism so I was pleasantly surprised to find myself drawn to the mystical in the book It s as if the reader like Liv becomes a part of the elaborate delusion that becomes realityThere is no solution to the mysteries and that is okay it suits the dreamlike unresolved style of the book I was only disappointed with the last bit of the book I thought it was too long drawn out than it was necessary and the charm started to wear off I felt a bit skeptical and less mesmerized than I was with the rest of the bookOverall this is recommended for those with a lot of patience which will be rewarded if you enjoy beautiful sentences

This is a book that I will be thinking about for a long time I ended up having uestions upon finishing it than I did when I started it but bloody hell I loved it If you enjoy ambiguous endings and unreliable narrators then you need to pick up John Burnside s A Summer of DrowningSet in the achingly beautiful and remote Kval ya in the Arctic Circle A Summer of Drowning sees Liv now in her late twenties attempt to piece together the mysterious events of her 18th summer on the island where several people drowned or vanished without explanation But the uestion remains how much can we trust Liv s account How much does her paranoia affect her recollection of eventsBurnside is also a prolific poet and you can really see that in his writing especially in his descriptions of nature and art There some truly beautiful passages He also has an uncanny knack for self reflection especially when it comes to solitary people Solitude plays a huge role in his work and I think any person comfortable in their own company will appreciate his writingThe book is haunting myth and Norwegian folklore blend with modern day reality resulting in a sense of distorted time on this isolated island where nothing and no one is really as it seems Beneath the guise of myths and legends there s a hint of something darker something human and predatory simmering beneath the surface But we can only guess at it Burnside does not provide any concrete answers Which I understand will not appeal to many readers but I personally loved it
