SUMMARY ↠ The Thirteenth Tale DOWNLOAD ↠ PADDINGTONFESTIVAL.CO.UK À Diane Setterfield Margaret Lea è una giovane libraia antiuaria con una uieta passione per le biografie letterarie in cui di tanto in tanto si cimenta La sua prevedibile esistenza viene sconvolta uando Vida. Sigh I really really wanted to like this book I heard good things about it and it has many elements I usually love in a novel a Victorian sensibility uestions of identity and sisterhood as well as siblinghood generally meta commentary on writing and a plain uiet somewhat chilly protagonist who prefers books to people The protagonist Margaret grew up in a bookstore and learned to read using 19th century novels and there are clear parallels in the story to Jane Eyre Wuthering Heights The Turn of the Screw and so onAnd yet with all it had going for it somehow it fell flat for me Somehow it felt slight and eventually tedious at the same time There were definitely many interesting moments but for some reason the gothic elements of the story never swept me up in the passion and scandal the way it would if the Brontes or Wilkie Collins wrote it Obviously this is an unfair comparison since the Brontes and Collins are my favorite writers but then again if you re going to model your story on Jane Eyre and indeed there were parts that really beat you over the head with it stating the obvious instead of allowing the reader to infer for herself you should be up to the task right One of the problems in my opinion is that it seems Setterfield wanted a Chinese box construction ala Wuthering Heights but whereas that novel drew me in and made me feel like I was personally sitting at Nelly s feet as she told me the story of Heathcliff and Cathy somehow Setterfield s construction in which the novelist Vida Winter tells Margaret her story and does so using third person for a reason revealed later in the novel feels very distanced Margaret has a personal obsession which is supposed to parallel Miss the novel s term not mine Winter s but this obsession for me at least had me wishing Margaret would just get over it already Miss Winter s story stops adding much new information at a certain point and later we are given the diaries of a minor character which essentially only goes over information we already know Yet despite this the ending feels rushed and the mysterious thirteenth tale which Margaret receives in writing toward the end is only excerpted One wishes AS Byatt had written this novel as I suspect Setterfield may not have felt up to the task of writing the thirteenth tale which has a fascinating premise Byatt I am sure would have written a gorgeous tale to end the book withThat s the bottom line I suppose I just don t think Setterfield is that good a stylist The story should have drawn me in but didn t and I set it down to writing that simply wasn t as imaginative or lovely as it could have been If I read that someone made hot sweet tea ONE MORE TIME I was going to go crazy I like hot sweet tea as much as the next Victorianist but can t you find something else to describe or a different way of doing it With all of the wonderful Victorian style writing going on now from former academics like Sarah Waters and AS Byatt it s too bad this book didn t measure up I kept comparing it to the in my opinion wonderful The Historian by Elizabeth Kostova which is also a first novel by a former academic The Historian has faults it s a little repetitious in certain points it s unwieldly there are some logic issues but it is so true to its Victorian predecessor Bram Stoker s Dracula in feeling and it completely sucks you in pun intended I have discovered a personal preference I would rather have an overlong unweildy messy wonderful novel that completely absorbs me than a shorter tidier but slight novel that doesn t touch me emotionally Wow did I just write a review that s longer than the book I just read The Meaning of Difference has many elements I usually love in a novel a Victorian sensibility uestions of identity and sisterhood
