The Essex Serpent Read & Download î 104 London 1893 Cora Seaborne är fortfarande ung men har just blivit änka och nu förväntar sig omgivningen att hon ska snöra åt korsetten klä sig i svart och dra sig tillbaka med en knähund i famnen Men äktenskapet var inte särskilt lyckligt och rollen som viktoriansk societetsfru passade aldrig den eg. Late Victorian England Cora Seaborne newly widowed by a sadistic but wealthy husband and now free to follow her interests in palaeontology finds herself in the Essex village of Aldwinter where rumours of a sea serpent lurking in the always conveniently foggy bay have the locals in a superstitious tizz There she meets local vicar Will Ransome and the two form an instant rapport despite their supposedly opposing views and despite the fact that the vicar already has a wife and children But then Will s wife coughs and instantly if you ve ever seen any costume drama ever you know what s going to happen to herI have to say that for me The Essex Serpent never really came alive as a novel It had potentially interesting characters but they were never uite convincing Perhaps because they were all too nice to one another Will s wife was way too understanding and the few tensions between them seemed like a failed attempt to liven things up rather than a genuine outgrowth of the characters themselves In her Author s Note at the end of the book Sarah Perry mentions Matthew Sweet s Inventing the Victorians for its challenge to the notion of a prudish era enslaved by religion and incomprehensible manners but I suspect it s that version of the Victorian Age readers want from a Victorian era novel so any author wanting to counter that view of the age really has to do a bit of extra work As a result Perry s Victorian age doesn t uite convince everyone was far too nice and understanding instead of being gossipy a married vicar carrying on with a widow disapproving and censorious Why else set the book in the Victorian Age at all Just for the costumesThat wouldn t have mattered had the book had a compelling plot or if it had explored any one of its incipient themes in detail I was expecting about the clash between superstition and rationality which was surely what was promised by the meeting of scientific Cora was she going to be the Serpent in this Essex Eden and religious Will but Will simply wasn t religious enough most of the time Or even had there been a genuine lingering air of weirdness or mystery about the serpent So for me the book never really turned into a novel but just remained a collection of characters bumping into one another In costume
