HASH(0xa2ca2d2c) out of 5 stars Much Ado About Notting July 27 2016
By Coloratura - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Though written from the standpoint of alternating persons, this enticingly acid, dishy novel is told mostly in First Person - and written with such gossipy verve as to become a bit of a page-turner. It's a story told to a group of friends at a gathering by Clare, a moderately overweight, unfashionable, insecure outsider who has always wanted more than anything to be part of the affluent West London neighborhood known as Notting Hill. At the outset, Clare basically aspires to be like - or perhaps worthy of - her own best friend, Sophie, who we're told is practically perfect in every way though, as we are able to see even through Clare's adoring eyes, she's neither a particularly good person, nor very desirable best friend material. Much of the story is propelled by their mutual petty jealousies and dishonesties, but - as we are told up front - it's as much a story about the dead as about the living. Because this is fundamentally a GHOST story. Sophie's apartment house in Notting Hill (where Clare manages to score the empty upstairs apartment) turns out to be genuinely haunted - by a former poet tenant who committed suicide, by a young woman who fell to her death from a window (was she pushed?), by a forgotten album by a '60s psych band called the Drunken Boats, perhaps even by its own current tenants (which include a porno director who only on occasion deigns to sleep in his own basement flat). Novelist-critic Anne Billson cleverly twists the tradition of the English ghost story to advance some rather inspired new metaphors for the "unavailable" lover - and the fact that there is ultimately no "there" there in Clare's upwardly mobile fantasies. She also leaves room in the story for us to interpret Clare's plight as possibly that of a young bisexual or gay woman who is actually infatuated with Sophie but has yet to come fully to grips with the haywire emotions behind her increasingly crazy actions. Because the novel is mostly told by a single, amusing, sarcastic, conversational voice rather than crisp descriptive narrative, it may feel a bit light but, when all is said and done, to convey such depths of shading, meaning, satire AND ambiguity within such a seemingly casual approach is no mean feat.
HASH(0xa3ab4ffc) out of 5 stars You will avoid mirrors for a while after reading this Feb. 21 2016

Great horror story! It's a quick read, six hours or less, and you will want to finish it within a day or two because you won't be able to put it down. Perfect for a quiet weekend, but maybe not for a weekend alone. It's scary! It's the sort of book you will stay up late reading, and then you will lie in bed wondering if it's safe to get up to pee because there's a mirror in the bathroom. Loved it.
HASH(0xa2f76768) out of 5 stars This is an absolutely terrific ghost story July 27 2016
By Lynda Rucker - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
This is an absolutely terrific ghost story, taut and well-written with vivid characters and a spot-on blackly comic/satirical vein that does not detract from the very effective horror. It's a fast read without feeling overly lightweight; there's actually quite a bit of complexity and subtext under its surface. Highly recommended!
