    PDF beechesgardenservicescouk  The Legacy Epub ´ legacy epub, The Legacy ePUB‘The Legacy’a debutby Australian author Kirsten Tranter was first published 10 years ago This is my first time reading her The experience is hard to describe Many readers won’t have the patience for itbut for those who do they risk becoming totally enslaved to it as I did I admit being ‘spent’ I don’t think I’ll stop thinking about it for weeks upon weeks This story is very alive and present in my head It’s a long noveland it feels long It’s a literary suspense thriller that is so unconventional ‘psychological thriller’ isn’t uite the right description It’s ep

    PDF beechesgardenservicescouk  The Legacy Epub ´ legacy epub, The Legacy ePUBMay contain spoilers May rambleThis is a difficult book to review And I'm going to start by saying that I think the reason I initially gave The Legacy four stars instead of five is to do with the main character Julia than the writing I love the writing and the structure and the setting the setting and the ending the endingJulia isn't so much a character as a human Which is what we want in writing right? And by the end of the book I really loved her But most of the time I was thinking mostly during the first half 'Bloody hell Julia' I also wanted her to form of a bond with Ingrid who was painted as a lovely woman albeit flawed just like the rest of the characters I just wanted the girls to ditch Ralph and have their own friendship But I guess that wasn't really the point or the theme of The LegacyI was glad when Julia let go of most of her baggage by the end of the book I actually cheered aloud at the last scene it was such a great ending and s

    PDF beechesgardenservicescouk  The Legacy Epub ´ legacy epub, The Legacy ePUBI wasn't sure what I thought of this book and then I read Peter Craven's review in 'The Monthly' where he calls it a crypto mystery novel rather haphazardly linked to an allusive literary novel and I admit now I know what I thought of this book Initia

    PDF beechesgardenservicescouk  The Legacy Epub ´ legacy epub, The Legacy ePUBThe Legacy by Kirsten Tranter was longlisted for the 2011 Miles Franklin It’s an accomplished debut novel in many ways but it failed to engage me in a sustained way I read about 50 pages of it put it aside and forgot about it until I realised it would soon be due back at the library And then I had to start again because I couldn’t remember what it was about Like Henry James’ A Portrait of a Lady the novel from which the plot is derived it’s of a meditation than a page turner whatever the publisher’s blurb might imply There is a mystery but the novel takes its own good time to reveal even that Ingrid’s disappearance is enigmatic Tranter takes a long time to set its scenes playing out sparse clues with dialogue and the narrator’s introspection There

    PDF beechesgardenservicescouk  The Legacy Epub ´ legacy epub, The Legacy ePUBYou remember where you were when you heard of them – events so momentous you just know the world would never be the same again For the Kennedy assassination I was asleep woken by a teary mother with the sad news For the death of Elvis on my birthday I might add I was enjoying a celebratory sudsy bath but that soon changed when the radio told me of his untimely passing With Whitlam's dismissal I had just come off class for the morning break when a teaching colleague heading out to playground duty imparted the news on passing For this one though I was away from home helping out on a school trip to the big island across the water Someone had turned the tele on that morning in the staff uarters just as we were about to go out and wake

    PDF beechesgardenservicescouk  The Legacy Epub ´ legacy epub, The Legacy ePUBI didn't read all of this but enough to conclude that it's not for me I found the writing a bit on the dull side and the characters profoundly uninteresting I had great intentions of finishing it in time for book club but after reading the first 30 to 50 pages I found myself choosing to do just about anything other than read this book I made a strong push the day before and slogged through to the beginning of Julia's New York investigation where the book finally seemed to be picking up a little steam but the heavy foreshadowing including the prologue that gives it all away in terms of Ingrid's marriage meant that there was a complete lack of suspense and therefore no reason to keep reading

    PDF beechesgardenservicescouk  The Legacy Epub ´ legacy epub, The Legacy ePUBThis is a long book – 438 pages but I didn’t find that it dragged The first 23 of the book reminded me of an Antipodean Brideshead Revisited or Great Gatsby with the outsider narrator watching wealthy people living out their greed and insecurity There is an artificiality and staginess to the lives of these wealthy and ruthless people and the glamour of the New York art scene does not disguise the curdled ugliness of these so called ‘ beautiful people’ The last 13 of the book took on the pace and tone of a mystery although its ending was too open ended to be really satisfactory on that score The descriptions of both Kirribilli and New York were well drawn and the dialogue flowed so naturally that it was barely noticeable There were too many paranormal deadends – a neighbour who read tea leaves and too many dream seuences but she captured well the uneasy line between enterprise and exploitation sexual adventureness and abuse The book was an ama
