From the jacket blurb this sounded really promising An important contemporary issue Culturally relevant Immediate Orange Prize winnerLike so many others Lev is on his way from Eastern Europe to Britain seeking work He is a tiny part of a vast diaspora that is changing British society at this very momentI ve been able to see some of the effects of the wave of Eastern European mostly Polish immigration here in Scotland over the past couple years A Polish deli opened here in Oban and then almost immediately closed down again People complained in the newspaper about the bus drivers not speaking English English classes have been in high demand Many of these newcomers have now left perhaps gone back home to families with some money in their pocketsThis book was disappointing on so many levels There were the niggly little things that bugged me throughout which a good editor should have eliminated For instance Tremain went to GREAT lengths to avoid giving Lev a specific country of origin Every time he met someone from his country which happened pretty often you could see Tremain doing an elaborate dance of avoidance around THE COUNTRY WHICH MUST NOT BE NAMED AwkwardThe list of unbelievable moments is pretty long as is the list of unconvincing characters Some examples Newcomer Lev s mobile phone rings during the opening of a fancy classical concert he runs away Mortifyingly idiotic Mole faced compatriot Lydia totally repulses Lev why then does he keep calling her Sophie the Gorgeous and Sexy Vixen ends up being just as treacherous as Christy the Bitter Irishman had predicted Go figure Lev leaves London for a bizarre but brief interlude in the asparagus fields where he gets seduced by two indistinguishable effeminate Chinese boys No follow up to this he goes back to London and carries on where he left off training to be a chef Whatever Lydia becomes pampered mistress to ancient symphony conductor from their country and never calls Lev backI did like some bits The pompous showy chef GK Ashe is hilarious as a portrait of the enormous EGO you might expect to find behind a high end urban restaurant Kitchen assistant Simone s irreverent menus for the old people s home made me laugh aloud for several minutesCreme brulee jacked from a recipe at GK AsheorWatermelon sorbet with no black seeds or rubbish in itOverall I found Lev s character too inconsistent to follow intimately He was brilliant and talented one minute and then a blockhead the next He also struck me as weirdly emotionless The other characters such as Rudi made wonderful sidekicks but I wanted Lev to call the shots He s the chef after all

Review from 2009Tremain is clearly a talented writer with very descriptive writing good dialogue good pacing I found the story enjoyable and interesting albeit not compelling and the ability for good and complex characterisation and story line The descriptions of the restaurant were surprisingly engaging unlike the modern art and plays described Rudi a strong character although his complete breakdown when the dam is proposed in contrast to his usual confidence is not really explored and Ina s ability to make Lev guilty and downcast well portrayedHowever in many other ways the novel is very flawed and in particular seems to lack authenticity Unfortunately her creative writing training does not seem to have taught her basic research and plot ending skills which are needed here as she actually tries to write a normal novel rather than a Makine Andrei type meditation Issues include Tremain s non specification of Lev s country simply seems to point to an unwillingness to do any research or alternately a stereotyped view that all Eastern European countries are the same incidental characters are entirely the two Chinese farm workers an Indian landlady and Christy s eventual wife both sari wearers a rural farmer or partly Christy s drinking and moroseness stereotypes Lev s English ability and sudden huge pay rise when needed from minimum wage to 900 a week as a head chef in a nursing home that previously had partial casual partial voluntary workers two scenes in the Nursing Home a Christmas lunch argument over crackers and cracker gifts was of a farce the incident when later Lev works at the home cooking GK Ashe style food with his black co worker writing a menu with descriptions such as wickedly lovely chicken with totally brilliant jus is close to embarrassing a too heavy handed attempt to draw out a wider migrant theme a kebab shop owner who gave Lev his first job later moans completely out of the context of the book about the lot of Arabic Muslims post 7 7 in the last sentence of the book Christy suddenly decides Lev s country is exactly like Ireland

The road home Free download á PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Lev is on his way to Britain to seek work so that he can send money back to eastern Europe to support. This is the tale of Lev an immigrant from an unnamed Eastern European accession country comes to London to seek his fortune He is 42 his wife has recently died and he leaves his daughter Maya with his mother There is an element of the fairy tale about this and we see London as a foreign and unfamiliar land through Lev s eyes Most of the people who are kindest to Lev are also similar to him Lev works in a variety of restaurants and take aways and for a brief while on the land in East Anglia He also helps out in a care home for older people manages to fall in and out of love and finds a friend in a divorced Irishman called Christy Lev sends money home and develops a dream of returning to his own country to open his own restaurant if only if he could raise enough money There you have it there are some engaging characters especially Christy and Rudi Lev s best friend back home and it does feel a little like a fairytale There are a couple of coincidences and plot turns which reinforce this At times the dialogue doesn t sit easily and there is one particular moment of violence which strikes a discordant note The reader spends most of the book in Lev s head and he is likeable until one act which feels very out of character and is difficult to reconcile with what has gone before Apart from that one note the characters are flawed and loveable and there is a sense of community amongst the poor and oppressed which is illuminating and uplifting sad and melancholy at the same time There were some serious flaws and irritations but I m a sucker for a fairy tale and it provided a different perspective on my country which was welcome and thought provoking
