    Epub Helen Dunmore ↠ The Lie PDF ↠ ↠ The Lie PDFDNF 23%I'm just not feeling this one The story seems pretty flat and although the topic of the devastating effects of the WW1 experience is described well neither the story nor the characters or the storytelling is engaging me enough to want to spend time with this book

    Epub Helen Dunmore ↠ The Lie PDF ↠ ↠ The Lie PDFThis is not the kind of books I usually read but god I’m so glad I read this one Daniel’s journey through the WWI and post war is something I will never forget You cannot read this book without feeling the horrors and atrocities of the war cut through your heart It’s a simple story nothing fancy; it’s just the reality that stabs you And coming to the writing it’s so graceful so peaceful and soothing that relieves you making sure that the worst has pastAnd lastly this terrifying tale of loss pain and fear loops you in so beautifully tha

    Epub Helen Dunmore ↠ The Lie PDF ↠ ↠ The Lie PDFThis was an idea spread too thin with not enough plot and or originality The writing was certainly good and where the passages handled strong emotion it was very affecting But not enough seemed to be done with the ideaThere are two halves to the narrative the passages set in the trenches and a later time when the character is trying to readjust to normal life

    Epub Helen Dunmore ↠ The Lie PDF ↠ ↠ The Lie PDFThis is a beautifully written tale about the sacrifices of the WW1 generation It's been marketed by the line Can love survive the war? but this is no simple love story It's far complex and layered than that involving a triangle of people who all love each other in such different ways And the love theme is but one strand and it mostly just simmers under the surface of the story and remains ambiguous to the very end The three main characters have known each other since childhood and have grown up in an isolated Cornish coastal village Frederick and Felicia are middle class siblings with Daniel being the son of their family cleaner The boys have been best friends from an early age despite their differing social standing The novel begins with Daniel having returned from the war tortured by what happened to Frederick who appears in the opening passages as a mud encrusted inhabitant of his friends sub conscious mind The narrative moves seamlessl

    Epub Helen Dunmore ↠ The Lie PDF ↠ ↠ The Lie PDFI have long been an admirer of Helen Dun and am pleased to say that I greatly enjoyed her latest work Obviously it is the Centenary of the First World War and so there are bound to be many books about such a cataclysmic historical event which changed Europe and the people involved forever This is a moving read but events and memories are unravelled slowly – almost poetically – and it is not a book to rush but to savour and think aboutDaniel Branwell returns to his home in Cornwall after the war His mother has died and Daniel is although not physically damaged suffering from vivid

    Epub Helen Dunmore ↠ The Lie PDF ↠ ↠ The Lie PDFThey say the war's over but they're wrong It went too deep for thatDun has become one of our great contemporary writers this short sharp story revisits WW1 both the trenches and the dreadful aftermath as Daniel Branwell tries to rebuild some kind of life for himself after the warThis is a very literary novel which deliberately uses literature itself to frame both this text and the story contained within it From the opening scene the ghosts of Homeric warriors invade this book as Dan wakes to find himself haunted by the restless shade

    Epub Helen Dunmore ↠ The Lie PDF ↠ ↠ The Lie PDFThis was pretty close to 5 stars for me something I rarely award fiction My first Helen Dun but I already have another on my wish list Beautifully written told in the first person it is a poignant and moving story which flows seamlessly between events during the Great War and the aftermath Usually when a story flicks backwards and forwards in time the changes are delineated by chapters or scene markers In this story because we hear it through the main protagonist's thoughts the changes are not marked and they are done so incredibly well that I was about half way through the book before I realised what was happening I'm writing this as if what I admired was Ms Dun's technical skill and I really did but what I loved was this story I'm not going to say anything about it because I don't want to give anything away save that it is great Sad very darkly comic in some places and heart wrenching in others it's got that mix of hope and despair
