The novel sets you up or it or some time The night I #Finished Reading The Novel #reading the novel couldn t shake the sadness of the ending and actually woke up in the middle of the night because I was having a bad dream about it Yes it was that striking And that s exactly why I ound it to be brilliant Part of the reason the ending is so good is that the novel simultaneously prepares you or it and upends your expectations The ending would never be so striking if the novel didn t take its time with the characters not just the eccentric title characters but also the supporting ones The word Dickensian often gets unfairly slapped on undeserving texts but what IS DICKENSIAN ABOUT THIS NOVEL IS Dickensian about this novel is way it approaches each chapter rom a distinct perspective and gives you insight into even the most seemingly leeting and insignificant characters If insight into even the most seemingly leeting and insignificant characters If didn t understand all the Miles from Kara feelings all the convoluted motivations of the characters the things they reveal to and concealrom each other then the ending wouldn t have the impact it does Finally the ending reveals something that is there throughout but which the reader often Pee Wee Scouts treasury (Pee Wee Scouts, forgets the novel is simultaneously a personal story of two unusual individuals a story about the lives they touch including their progeny and a story about something much bigger the very nation those characters inhabit the ways they consciously shape it and the ways they are unknowingly complicit in something they never intendedPlus Carey writes some gorgeous prose She thought When we are two they do not notice us They think us a match What wisdom does a mob have It is a hydra an organism stupid or dangerous in much of its behavior but could it have in spite of this a proper judgement about which of its component partsit best together Peter Carey Oscar and LucindaA book to love A book to wade in submerge into A novel that tempts one to grab it around the middle and sueeze even as it dances away like a shadow It lickers like the uiet mirrored Doppler effect of water lowing around a pair of
