HASH(0xa4ad6bac) out of 5 stars A very intense examination of character July 13 2013
By Sylvia - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I found this piece of undeniable literature very difficult to read. The focus was on the characters, thus making most of the action cerebral rather than physical.

Patrick White gives us his usual sad description of elderly spinster Theodore, who comes from a sheltered but difficult background. After living a life of servitude, which seems to be self inflicted, she launches herself into the wide open world so that she may find truth... I think! Truth(?) is not something a person 'finds' which Theodore eventually discovers.

I could not really understand what she did find, unless it was absolutely nothing. I think I would interpret White's novel as being about how quests for particulars tend to be fruitless and are inclined to end badly. But probably there are many other interpretations of this novel which would be equally as valid as mine.

I could not recommend this novel for the average reader because it is so dense. But those who enjoy prose as poetry and peculiar characters well described (and almost, but not really believable) might find this tale enjoyable - even if it has to be taken in small bites!

HASH(0xb3810cfc) out of 5 stars Patrick White's "Aunt Story" is a literary triumph June 22 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Theodore was not like other women. She had no time for all the niceties that many take for granted. Afterall, she was stuck at home caring for her bitter,and senile Mother. On the eve of the Mother's death, Theodore begins an odyssey to discover the meaning of life and existence itself. A haunting tale that grips the reader with all the intensity and anguish that a book can muster. A quality book suitable for the thinking reader
