    (E–pub) [Landed Author Tim Pears] Remarkably disturbing book Can't stop thinking about its unusual structure and feeling the depth of sadness portrayed in it The novel is compared to those of Kent Haruf and that is perhaps because much of it takes place out of doors and because the emotional plot moves forward through the descriptions of action almost entirely Even emotions are betrayed as physical sensations

Happy Husband And Father 
husband and father life is torn apart by a car accident in which his eldest daughter is killed and he loses a hand It #Is Also A Book Of #also a book of halves literally the first half is like a dossier than a novel This consists of a number of scenes virtually self contained short stories from Owen s childhood a police crime scene eport a therapist s case study a statement from Owen s ex wife about their Alcora - O Acordo Secreto do Colonialismo relationship and Owen s introductory post on a Fathers4Justice style online forum The second half then takes the form of a conventional narrative following Owen s progress in attempting to win back the affection of his childrenIn the hardback edition that Iead the blurb on the inside flap of the cover gave away almost everything that happens in the story save for the ending the official summary on Goodreads is the same fyi I don t want to do the same thing in my eview but surprisingly this didn t eally do anything to affect my enjoyment of the novel There s a uiet and very simple sort of beauty in the prose it *s difficult to explain but somehow the narrative always manages to generate sympathy for its characters while at the same time *difficult to explain but somehow the narrative always manages to generate sympathy for its characters while at the same time a certain distance from them which gives the style an unusual but effective coolness The ending meanwhile is simultaneously shocking and inevitable in fact I d describe a number of things that happen in Landed in the same way There were times when I wished I could get closer to the characters get inside their heads and under their skin but I think in the end that keeping them at arm s length is what made the story so effectiveThis book initially attracted me because of the plot s apparent similarity to Ross Raisin s God s Own Country which like The Secret History has become one of those exalted books I am constantly searching for eplicas of Inevitably the eplicas are never as good as the original even if they were written first even if the author is far lauded and well Before Copernicus respected Landed was an interesting and movingead but it totally lacked the incredible lasting impact God s Own Country had on me On top of that I actually preferred the mixture of formats in the first half of the book criticised by some eviewers to the straightforward plot of the second and I would ather the whole story have been told like this Landed is a bleak and poignant novel the sort of story I enjoyed and appreciated enormously but probably wouldn t want to Health and Wellbeing in Childhood reead heres a Child Support, for the Non-Custodial Parent, Alabama Edition (Series 1, for the Non-Custodial Parent) re.

View which sums up how i felt about the book unfortunately the book left me a bit cold and muddled in the end i eally liked Pears writing beautifully written infact but it just lost its grip half way thru the bookIf the first half of the novel dramatises Owen s childhood and the fallout from the crash his efuge in alcoholism grieving for his daughter and crippled by phantom pain in his missing arm the second half is a linear account of his abduction of Josh and Holly his children Owen turns up at the school and persuades their teachers to let them

Mind Not Least For 
not least for vivacity of its language and imagery This story opens with a court eport about an accident that may or may not have been caused by a dog crossing the Dark Calling roadThen we switch point of view to a therapist trying to help a strange taciturn Welshman deal with the fact that he lost a handThrough a series of flashbacks and narrators the story of the man unfolds His childhood time with his grandfather in Wales falling in love his children Whom he eventually kidnaps after a bad divorce to take them back to WalesI was engaged for most of the book and Pears does a pretty good job of distinguishing voice Gotta say though that the ending was somewhat enigmatic and unsatisfactory for someeaso. T with both his past and the natural world Abducting his children he embarks on a long fateful journey walking to the Welsh borders of his childhood In his confusion his journey is a grasping at some kind of an understanding of his loss Powerful Arabella Millers Tiny Caterpillar richly evocative and perfectly poised between the hope ofedemption and the threat of irrevocable tragedy Landed is Tim Pears' most assured and beguiling novel to dat.
