    Landed By Tim Pears [E–pub New] Remarkably disturbing book Can't stop thinking about its unusual structure and feeling the depth of sadness portrayed in it The novel is compared to those of Kent Haruf and that is perhaps because much of it takes place out of doors and becaus

FREE READ Landed By Tim Pears SUMMARY ô E-book, or Kindle E-pub ☆ Tim Pears Tim Pears ☆ 9 SUMMARY Brought up in the Anglo Welsh borders by an affectionate but alcoholic and feckless mother Owen Ithell's sense of self is rooted in his long vivid visits to his grandparents' small farm in the hills There he is deeply impressed by his grandfather's primitive cruel relationship with his animals and the land As an adult he moves away from the country of his childhood to an English city where he builds a new life. Landed is the life story of Owen Ithell a seemingly happy husband and father whose life is torn apart by a car accident in which his eldest daughter is killed and he loses a hand It is also a book of two halves literally the first half is like a dossier than a novel This consists of a number of scenes virtually self contained short stories from Owen s childhood a police crime scene report a therapist s case study a statement from Owen s ex wife about their relationship and Owen s introductory post on a Fathers4Justice style online forum The second half then takes the form of a conventional narrative following Owen s progress in attempting to win back the affection of his childrenIn the hardback edition that I read the blurb on the inside flap of the cover gave away almost everything that happens in the story save for the ending the official summary on Goodreads is the same fyi I don t want to do the same thing in my review but surprisingly this didn t really do anything to affect my enjoyment of the novel There s a uiet and very simple sort of beauty in the prose it s difficult to explain but somehow the narrative always manages to generate sympathy for its characters while at the same time retaining a certain distance from them which gives the style an unusual but effective coolness The ending meanwhile is simultaneously shocking and inevitable in fact I d describe a number of things that happen in Landed in the same way There were times when I wished I could get closer to the characters get inside their heads and under their skin but I think in the end that keeping them at arm s length is what made the story so effectiveThis book initially attracted me because of the plot s apparent similarity to Ross Raisin s God s Own Country which like The Secret History has become one of those exalted books I am constantly searching for replicas of Inevitably the replicas are never as good as the original even if they were written first even if the author is far lauded and well respected Landed was an interesting and moving read but it totally lacked the incredible lasting impact God s Own Country had on me On top of that I actually preferred the mixture of formats in the first half of the book criticised by some reviewers to the straightforward plot of the second and I would rather the whole story have been told like this Landed is a bleak and poignant novel the sort of story I enjoyed and appreciated enormously but probably wouldn t want to re read ueer Theory and Brokeback Mountain post on a Fathers4Justice style online forum The second half then takes the form of a conventional narrative following Owen s The Truth Against the World progress in attempting to win back the affection of his childrenIn the hardback edition that I read the blurb on the inside flap of the cover gave away almost everything that happens in the story save for the ending the official summary on Goodreads is the same fyi I don t want to do the same thing in my review but surprisingly this didn t really do anything to affect my enjoyment of the novel There s a uiet and very simple sort of beauty in the Making Him Sweat Taking Him Down prose it s difficult to explain but somehow the narrative always manages to generate sympathy for its characters while at the same time retaining a certain distance from them which gives the style an unusual but effective coolness The ending meanwhile is simultaneously shocking and inevitable in fact I d describe a number of things that happen in Landed in the same way There were times when I wished I could get closer to the characters get inside their heads and under their skin but I think in the end that keeping them at arm s length is what made the story so effectiveThis book initially attracted me because of the Judaism As a Civilization Toward a Reconstruction of American Jewish Life plot s apparent similarity to Ross Raisin s God s Own Country which like The Secret History has become one of those exalted books I am constantly searching for replicas of Inevitably the replicas are never as good as the original even if they were written first even if the author is far lauded and well respected Landed was an interesting and moving read but it totally lacked the incredible lasting impact God s Own Country had on me On top of that I actually Badger's Parting Gifts preferred the mixture of formats in the first half of the book criticised by some reviewers to the straightforward Ostende 1936 Sommer der Freundschaft plot of the second and I would rather the whole story have been told like this Landed is a bleak and Die Entwicklung des Sozialismus von der Utopie zur Wissenschaft poignant novel the sort of story I enjoyed and appreciated enormously but Ist dieses Buch ansteckend?
