    eBook Arthur Phillips ✓ Angelica PDF/EPUB ¹ ✓ angelica ebok, Angelica PDFI have just lost an entire Saturday devouring the last half of this extraordinary novel having my mind exploded and my heart broken and reconstructed and broken again I am an Arthur Phillips fan The Egyptologist A Novel Prague and I had high hopes for his third novel described as a Victorian ghost story that becomes something else I happily flipped through the first section of the book a somewhat straightforward Victorian ghost story cheekily mocking the everything in Victorian novels is secretly about 'sex is scary' idea by explicitly telling a highly mannered and proper story that is openly about sex is scary Constance's terror of death by childbirth leads directly to her visions of a demonghost sexually menacing her daughter every time her husb

    eBook Arthur Phillips ✓ Angelica PDF/EPUB ¹ ✓ angelica ebok, Angelica PDFI debated between whether to give this 2 stars or 4 so I settled on 3 This is one of the few books I've read and reviewed where I can honestly admit the jury's still out on whether I disliked it or liked it Strange no?Phillips is a beautiful writer I mean really really good with creating textured sentences mind boggling prose If I only had one fifth of this guy's writing ability I'd be happy So as far as just enjoying a wonderfully written piece of writing thisisitfolksIt's complex and deep and Freudian perhaps just too much for my personal reading preferences I did like the POV changes between the four main characters I thought it was a good touch to see how the same event can be perceived and rationalized in different ways and how you as the reader are never sure which perception if any is the right one And I suppose that's why the story left me confused and unsatisfied as well I generally like books that are resolved by the last page it

    eBook Arthur Phillips ✓ Angelica PDF/EPUB ¹ ✓ angelica ebok, Angelica PDFOh Arthur Phillips you are so freuently interesting so infreuently engaging Your characters are almost never likeable and your plotlines even when steeped in the Victorian gothic as here seem never to develop momentum or tension I want to work with you on this I really do as both Prague and especially The Egyptologist show promise and had potentially gripping motifs but it is just not working this time SorryAlright I persevered I think a big part of the problem is that the back blurb gives away so much about the book as to sap over the first half of almost all momentum IF YOU INTEND TO READ THIS BOOK DO NOT READ ANYTHING ABOUT IT So that's not really Phillips' fault Unfortunately about halfway was also where I understood what the ending would be Even so after that

    eBook Arthur Phillips ✓ Angelica PDF/EPUB ¹ ✓ angelica ebok, Angelica PDFIn late October when one is sitting in a one's small warm room staring out into gray wet or bright bright day one's thoughts cannot help but turn to the supernatural spiritualists madness prisons children the sciences the occult new brides old widows ueen Victoria Freud Darwin pixies reading rooms public houses vivisectionmass murderers confused constables dead fathers weeping mothers prettier sisters and reasonable brothers If you are searching for other and possibly intelligent thoughts on these undoubtedly disturbing and morbid subjects I would recommend settling in with a double feature of Affinity by Sarah Waters and Angelica by Arthur Phillips Both upset my humors and made me hysterical In a good Victorian suspense novel kinda way The books are elegantly written novels exploring the tensions during the turn of the last century between the burgeoning sciences and waning spiritualism Tensions between the sexes the classes between real human hungers and ideal

    eBook Arthur Phillips ✓ Angelica PDF/EPUB ¹ ✓ angelica ebok, Angelica PDFI've had this book for ages and I've started it countless times and then bogged down and stuck it back on the stack Finally I decidedI WILL READ IT And I've been trying really I have I only make myself read a chapter at a time and then I can put it down After a point what IS the point to doing that? If I'm not enjoying a book I should jettison it And so I finally skimmed through to the end which I didn't really get Reading other reviews I see that isn't unusual the ending is ambiguous Sigh I enjoyed The Egyptologist although it made me feel like an idiot because I just didn't get that ending at all I had to keep reading about it until I finally figured it out I zzzzzzzzzzed out on

    eBook Arthur Phillips ✓ Angelica PDF/EPUB ¹ ✓ angelica ebok, Angelica PDFI read Prague a few years back also by Phillips and like this one it was well written but lacking something It's the story of a family who is haunted by alternately a ghost or a psychosis take your pick from the perspectives of the main characters involved and presented in three separate sections a lesson in the subjective nature of experience But the machinations of the author were too transparent I found the first narrator the mother very unsympathetic which pr
