Lochside conundrum 16 février 2012
Par yjr - Publié sur
Format: Broché
Gillies' prose is SO eloquent, I re-read many sentences over and over, little jewels, delicious words.
The story is gripping: many characters in scenes from a modern-era period play (I kept referring to the handy family tree at the front of the book to make sure I was getting who was related to whom in the hierarchy), all of whom are complex characters in their own rights, for various reasons that are revealed, ever so subtly.
The house, the descriptions of the weather, the loch - all gorgeous & evocative Scottish loveliness -
and then the sinister ...
Hard to put down, and good twists in the plot that have you turning page after page with increasing rapidity!
But for me, it was more than the mystery, it is her beautiful turn of phrase, the descriptive manner in which she notices the smallest of details and weaves them in to craft a multi-layered confection which I found absolutely irresistible.

Gillies's Eloquent Prose Make this a Must Read 4 mai 2012
Par GP_writes - Publié sur

I'd received this novel in the mail weeks ago and finally had time to properly dig in beyond Chapter 3 on a recent 4-day trip to London. I finished the novel on the flight home, and would have done sooner would it not have been rude to read during a night out at drinks with friends. The characters in the novel are so richly drawn, so absorbing, they are still speaking to me weeks after putting them on the shelf. I keep wondering what Mog is up to now, where is Otillie, what fate awaits Ursula? I'd completely entered the world of the Salters. For four glorious days I sat on the banks of the loch of their Scottish estate, peered through the windows, eavesdropped on private conversations, and, as often happens when finishing a book that's become an entity, I've mourned and felt its loss. Writing this rich and fertile deserves a wide audience. I can't recommend this novel enough. You will be richer having read Ms. Gillies exquisitely crafted prose. Discover the mystery of the Salters family, the web of lies and deceit spanning generations, and when you've finished don't mourn too heavily - simply return to page 1.

An Unusual and most gripping book 29 avril 2012
Par Maxxx - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
On a sweltering day in 1994, our narrator, Michael, slips beneath the dark waters of the loch near his stately home. Michael begins his story in 2008, admitting that he is dead and describes the events of his demise.

However, his large family have their own interpretations. Is he dead or did he run away? For their own reasons some select one explanation and others reason differently, and some prefer to lie. Four generations live on the property. (There is a family tree at the beginning of the book to elucidate if necessary).

Another mystery for Michael during his 19 years has been the identity of his father, as his mother refuses to say. This too is a matter of speculation for Michael, his family, and the villagers.

Michael relates the story in flashbacks which slowly give us new slants and turnarounds on the story until you are not sure what you believe. All is revealed in 2008 when the story comes to a climax.

The writing is beautifully descriptive and provides several points to ponder about life itself. One wants to keep on reading to get to the next bit of information. I would thoroughly recommend this book.

Totally absorbing 21 mars 2012

I lost an entire weekend to this book, drawn in by my delight in the richness of the characterisation, as well as by the intriguing layers of mystery at the novel's core. I had just a moment's doubt about the narrator's unusual position, but by the time I'd reached the bottom of the first page, suspension of disbelief was no longer an issue. The emotional range is impressive and the story-telling compelling. It would make a brilliant TV drama series. Highly recommended.

Beautiful prose but tedious, boring story. Could have been one third shorter. Odd family member is responsible for the death of two others and the family accepts it?
