Présentation de l'éditeur

From the New York Times bestselling author of Room,Emma Donoghue, Hood is a graceful tale of a young woman who must come toterms with love and loss in the wake of her partner’s sudden passing. The NewYork Times Book Review calls Hood “utterly charming,” writing that,“Ms. Donoghue displays her confidence by avoiding the grandiose and the showy,and dipping into the ordinary with control and the occasional sustainingdescriptive flashes of a born writer.” For readers of Jeanette Winterson’s Oranges Are Not the Only Fruit and JoyceCarol Oates’s The Widow’s Story, Donoghue’s Hood is a masterfullycrafted narrative of relationships and a daring, deft exploration of the love’simperfection—and how it can nonetheless dominate our lives as we grow andchange.

Quatrième de couverture

A tale of grief and lust, frustration and hilarity, death and family

Penelope O’Grady and Cara Wall are risking disaster when, like teenagers in any intolerant time and place—here, a Dublin convent school in the late 1970s—they fall in love. Yet Cara, the free spirit, and Pen, the stoic, craft a bond so strong it seems as though nothing could sever it: not the bickering, not the secrets, not even Cara’s infidelities.

But thirteen years on, a car crash kills Cara and rips the lid off Pen’s world. Pen is still in the closet, teaching at her old school, living under the roof of Cara’s gentle father, who thinks of her as his daughter’s friend. How can she survive widowhood without even daring to claim the word? Over the course of one surreal week of bereavement, she is battered by memories that range from the humiliating, to the exalted, to the erotic, to the funny. It will take Pen all her intelligence and wit to sort through her tumultuous past with Cara, and all the nerve she can muster to start remaking her life.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A Life-Changing Book 19 octobre 2016
Par H.R.S. - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
This is likely one of the best books I've ever read. I didn't know what to expect from it. It didn't go where I thought it would go (I tend to be rather jaded and wary of books like this) and it was gloriously unpredictable.

This book is magical in the way that it draws you in. The surreal quality to Pen's life as she faces her responsibilities after her girlfriend's untimely death is felt by the reader as well. There is one part (no spoilers, don't worry) where she talks about reading the titles of the hundreds of books on the bookcases just to pass the time. Anything for a distraction. She talks about dusting. Trivial, mundane tasks. But it doesn't feel mundane to the reader.

This is in my top 3 favorite books, and I am so happy I read it.

My life is better, and I am a better person, for having read it.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 I cannot put into words how much I love this book. 12 août 2004
Par R. Linz - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I have read this book many times, and at times it makes me sob with bitter sadness, and at other times it makes me laugh out loud. The writing is exquisite; the bathtub scene (Pen's memory of a peaceful time with her and her recently deceased lover) captures perfectly what the essence of love is. It's beautiful. The frustration that Pen feels at having to keep silent about her partner's death (because she works at a Catholic school and because she lives in Ireland) transmits frustration to the readers as well -- but not in that hokey, "oh being a lesbian is so hard" preachy way. It is Pen's evolution as she learns to cope with Cara's death and to face certain truths she didn't want to deal with previously. I also believe that it is a beautiful love story but in a realistic way - the main characters are not perfect, yet their love is so intense. It's not a "romance" -- it's a real-life, complex love story. I haven't been as big a fan of Donoghue's other novels so far, but this one stands out as exceptional for its writing, story line and character development. Read Hood -- with a box of tissues nearby.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 ... I first read "Room" (2010) I have read and enjoyed several of Emma Donoghue's other books 8 novembre 2014

Since I first read "Room" (2010) I have read and enjoyed several of Emma Donoghue's other books. In this case I was less taken by the protagonist's stubborn love of her faithless lover, and slightly put off by all the explicit sex (I would feel the same if it had been hetero). But it is well written with strong characters.

1.0 étoiles sur 5 not what I expected 20 avril 2014

I did not enjoy this book at all. I had read Room and expected this book to be equally as entertaining, which it certainly was not. Trying to compare it to such academic and literary achievements at the Odyssey is ludicrous....I'm moving on to Frog Music. I haven't given up on Emma yet.
2.0 étoiles sur 5 Not Donoghue's best work. 14 octobre 2016

... never seemed to get off the ground. Kept waiting for significant developments, but they never came. Not Donoghue's best work.
