Who or what is watching Jake Whyte from the woods? Jake Whyte is the sole resident of an old farmhouse on an unnamed island, a place of ceaseless rains and battering winds. It's just her, her untamed companion, Dog, and a flock of sheep. Which is how she wanted it to be. But something is coming for the sheep - every few nights it picks one off, leaves it in rags. It could be anything. There are foxes in the woods, a strange boy and a strange man, rumours of an obscure, formidable beast. And there is Jake's unknown past, perhaps breaking into the present, a story hidden thousands of miles away and years ago, in a landscape of different colour and sound, a story held in the scars that stripe her back. Set between Australia and a remote English island, All the Birds, Singing is the story of one how one woman's present comes from a terrible past. It is the second novel from the award-winning author of After the Fire, A Still Small Voice.… (mais)

Yllättävä. En tiedä mitä odotin, mutta pidin siitä mitä löysin. Erikoinen, vähän ruma ja tempoileva. Tarinaa kuljetetaan monessa eri ajassa ja kokonaiskuva jää tarkoituksellisen sirpaloituneeksi. ( )

This book! Powerful prose oozing with ominousness, the pages practically sticky with sinisterness! The timeline was a little jumpy, disconcerting at first, but the pattern is quickly established and I soon developed a strange appreciation for it. The chapters alternate present and past, with the present moving forward, the past lapsing deeper and deeper into days gone by.

The reader is filled with anticipation while being unable to pinpoint the cause of suspense, knowing only that menace lurks somewhere in the shadows nearby. It was literary without being dull or boring, the refined edges sharp enough to cut yourself on. I can't say I understood all of the slang, but I thoroughly enjoyed my time with the main character, an Aussie living on a remote island off the coast of Britain. A quick read that portrays a perfect example of how to break the rules of grammar the right way. Impactful writing, eloquent imagery, a beautiful work of art. 5 stars! ( )

Wij zijn de wolven. Door Evie Wyld.

Wat een boek: donker, grimmig, benauwend, meeslepend, pijnlijk. Maar ook betoverend, verslavend, vol sprankeltjes hoop en gensters geweldige humor.

Wyld schrijft krachtig en zinnelijk, over vrouwen die het slachtoffer zijn van mannen, die alles verliezen, zichzelf verliezen, maar die daarnaast ook krachtig en moedig, boeiend en slim zijn. Haar stijl en thematiek doen me denken aan Maggie O’Farrell (Hamnet) en Sarah Hall (De komst van de wolven).

We volgen Sarah die aan het begin van de achttiende eeuw als heks wordt vervolgd, Ruth die vlak na de tweede wereldoorlog is getrouwd met Peter, vader van twee zonen, en Viviane, die zestig jaar later past op hun huis tot het verkocht wordt. De levens van deze drie vrouwen zijn op de één of ander manier verbonden, en niet enkel door pijn, geweld en verdriet. Ze zien schimmen, horen geklop, zijn op de vlucht, rouwen om geleden verlies.

Dit is een boek dat een faliekante aanklacht is tegen het eeuwenoude geweld van mannen op vrouwen, zonder activistisch te zijn. Wyld vertelt een verhaal, 4 verhalen in feite, en die verhalen vertellen ons een verhaal, het verhaal dat zo oud is al de straat, dat verandert maar nooit verdwijnt. Dat op de achtergrond steeds aanwezig is, als een schim, een onrustige bries die af en toe opsteekt.

Wij zijn de wolven lezen is je onderdompelen in een ervaring die voelt als ploeteren door het slijk terwijl de ijswind om je oren raast: het is afzien, je hele zijn wordt gedomineerd door deze ervaring. Je stopt met denken, kan enkel voelen. Het zweept je op en sleept je mee. Je wil dat er een einde komt aan de ervaring, je wilt dat het nooit ophoudt want ondanks het afzien geniet je van elke letter, elke zin als een schitterende ijspegel die vol schoonheid ook snijdt. Je voelt je leven.

Sarah, Ruth, Viviane. Maar ook Maggie, Betty, Bernadette. Ze dragen allemaal de stem van Evie in zich. Ze zijn slachtoffer, dader, moeder, dochter, verleidster, heks, wijze en zoeker in één. Ze betoveren je.

Wat een vrouwen, wat een schrijver, wat een boek. Fan! ( )

This is one of the strangest books I've read recently. I had a little trouble reading the first third or so of it, not because it was a difficult read in the way that some books are difficult reads but more because, even though the prose isn't terribly elaborate or ornate, it just felt like it took more time than I expected to get from word to word, sentence to sentence. This is weird in what's really a pretty short book. I blew through the second two thirds in a night. Maybe I just learned to bounce over what felt like sluggish prose, or maybe the story began to capture my interest more; I'm not sure.

In the end, I'm really ambivalent about the book. There's definitely menace lurking in its pages (as the cover of my edition advertises), but I feel like there's a lot that I just haven't worked out about how to receive the book. The weird beast. What all the twinning/tripletting means. The strange departure into the Big Cataclysmic Event of her childhood. There's definitely structure here, and there are some neat things, such as the contrast between her coming to Otto's household and Lloyd's coming to hers, but I wasn't able to piece it together into a coherent sort of worldview or anything. Which is maybe ok. Everything doesn't have to be tidy. ( )

Hard getting started, I found the English a bit staccato.
Once into it, I was initially confused with the switching back and forward in time.
I got captured by the story, pieced together with memories present and past to complete the jigsaw of her tale.
A bit much lewd detail in parts, but skilful construction.
