Excellent read if you like bleak Usually not my thing but it s so tense it puts you right there unfortunately, as these are not happy campers Hitchcockesque Cormac McCarthy appeal you just keep turning the pages although not necessarily happy about it A well deserved Prix Medicis 2010. Ever dream of packing it all up and leaving the city Go to someplace remote and start a new life Living off the land, fending for yourself Living the life you know you were supposed to live Everyone has had that dream at some point in their life, including me Except in my dream, I m in a log cabin with a TV, internet, and near a grocery store I m not actually into some of the harder aspects like chopping wood, storing food for the winter, catching fish, or hunting animals Would I actually Ever dream of packing it all up and leaving the city Go to someplace remote and start a new life Living off the land, fending for yourself Living the life you know you were supposed to live Everyone has had that dream at some point in their life, including me Except in my dream, I m in a log cabin with a TV, internet, and near a grocery store I m not actually into some of the harder aspects like chopping wood, storing food for the winter, catching fish, or hunting animals Would I actually do it I don t know Maybe after I ve lived my life, you know after getting married, having kids, visit Africa, visit Australia, visited all 50 states, and so many other things Sukkwan Island A Novella from Legend of Suicide by David Vann flips that idyllic vision that most people have Instead we have a dark and sometimes difficult to read tale Jim and his son Roy pack up everything and move to a remote Alaskan island The move is Jim s dream, which is forced upon Roy You can sense right away that this is a strained relationship Jim isinto the lifestyle than Roy A year away from civilization is supposed to be a fun bonding experience, but it just drives them further apart Roy didn t feel any closer to his father than he had on their occasional vacations and he wondered if this would change at all At times Roy seems like the parent, and Jim is the immature, emotional child Roy is doing the bulk of the work, gathering wood, catching fish, and cooking While Jim moves from project to project, and ends each night crying All Roy wants to do is escape Was moving away the right decision Is it right for a parent to force their dream on their child There was nothing Roy could think of to say, so he didn t say anything But he wondered why they were here at all, when everything important to his father was somewhere else Told from Roy and Jim s point of view the story offers a complex dichotomy of how they see the world Roy isrational about life He wonders why someone would choose to live this way All they have is each other, but sometimes they don t even talk Dinners are in silence Roy is equally sullen, coming to resent his father The ending of the first half of the story is a big shocker I can t be specific, but it was definitely a direction I wasn t expecting In the second half, it s Jim s turn to narrate and we actually learn his name after having Roy call him father the whole time My view of Jim didn t change didn t when it was his turn to narrate His thoughts seem just as scatterbrained as Roy described Only when he was forced to did Jim realize how much he needs Roy or that Roy s feelings mattered When push comes to shove he faces reality As a whole, the story is depressing but well told The reading experience was totally different for me since this was an e book Normally I find a comfy position on the couch and read my book Since I don t have an e reader I had to read this on my laptop Not the best experience for my first e book, but fortunately that didn t cloud my opinion of the story Rating SuperbNotes I was pointed to this free e book by the publisher HarperCollins Hair raising. I had a hard time reading this book It seemed to drag on I couldn t get into it and stopped reading it about 1 3 way through I had a hard time following along This one just wasn t for me.

everything turns dark while time in Alaska going on Before properly reviewing this book, I have to mention two things First, this is not the sort of book I usually turn to I admit that I mostly decided to check this out because it was translated by a friend of mine and that I wanted to have a better idea of what she worked on That does not goes to say that I did not enjoy it I think reading a outside of your comfort zone is always a positive experience Second, the French edition of this title does not exactly correspond to the original Ameri Before properly reviewing this book, I have to mention two things First, this is not the sort of book I usually turn to I admit that I mostly decided to check this out because it was translated by a friend of mine and that I wanted to have a better idea of what she worked on That does not goes to say that I did not enjoy it I think reading a outside of your comfort zone is always a positive experience Second, the French edition of this title does not exactly correspond to the original American edition which is entitled Legend of a Suicide Sukkwan Island is a novella part of Legend of a Suicide but the original book includes other short stories that complete the story told in the novella I finished this title a few days ago being a novella, it was a fairly quick read, though not a light one by any means and I still don t really know what to think about it.The first part of the novella, told from the point of view of the teenager, was really powerful showing not just the technical and practical difficulties faced by father and son on this deserted island, but also the ugliness of human nature and the incapacity for this man to act as an adult, let alone as a father So the son is forced to take matter in his own hands and well, there s no other way to this besides, that s when the book slaps you in the face Then, the narration s point of view shifts to the father and you feel a lot of pointless procrastination and meaningless mental wondering on the part of the father who sadly cannot come to terms with the novella s events, his life in general and his fatherhood This character was constantly mistaken, so much so, that it is tragic Till the end, he simply does not get it It s a tragic, poignant story that you probably shouldn t be reading if you re feeling down It successfully depicts human nature in all its ugliness, selfishness and meaninglessness is that even a word and it is well served by the short, incisive and bare style of the author However, despite all these qualities, I can t help but feel somewhat unsatisfied and frustrated by this reading I couldn t figure out why until today I initially thought it might have something to do with the gloomy aspect of the narration or perhaps, the crude narrative style But now I doubt it When speaking with a friend about it I told her that I felt I may need to readof the author s work to be able to put this novella into perspective and find a place for it in my mind, but also in the author s overall work At the time, I was not aware of the fact that the French edition was in fact a truncated version of the original I now believe that I would have needed to read the rest of the collection to have a clear opinion on this and do away with my own frustration I know a great many French readers did not feel this way so I m not saying the editor was wrong to only publish one novella I love Editions Gallmeister and I think they re doing the most fabulous work I know how difficult it is to sell short stories collection these days I m glad this talented author has had a chance to be published in France, in a wonderful translation and is selling extremely well at that I guess the frustration on my part can be interpreted as something positive in the sense that it means I need to readfrom this author Anyway, I definitely think this is an author to keep an eye on Une le sauvage du Sud de l Alaska, accessible uniquement par
