A Stone Boat characters Ë 7 He discovers that she is terminally ill In an attempt to escape his feelings of guilt and depression at the prospect of her death he embarks on a series of intense love affairs that force him to uestion his sexual identity But as time runs out a. I picked this up for 1 in an op shop and chose it purely because of The Noonday Demon which is an amazing piece of work The first 20 or 30 pages were great and I was really looking forward to seeing how the novel unfolded but it just didn t Maybe it s because Harry as a character is too affected too introspective too precious and I just couldn t relate to him Maybe it s because the concept of a lifestyle that involves endless flights across the Atlantic luxury laden holidays and staff staff is too alien to me What ever the reason I found myself wanting to slap Harry to tell him to be grateful for everything he has and to stop wasting his life No one else in the novel seemed prepared to do that not even Helen who appears to have known him forever and is portrayed as having her head screwed on Although there was one point in the novel where she does something that left me thinking Are you kidding girl Most of the characters speak with such earnestness that they seem to me as caricatures of themselves Freddy seems to be the only one who speaks like a human being and he hardly says anything I did read the entire book but I m pretty sure there were entire paragraphs that I glazed over reading with my eyes but not with my mind Disappointing because Andrew Solomon is definitely a great writer but maybe only of nonfiction

A Stone Boat characters Ë 7 Nd tragedy looms closer it is the relationship between Harry and his mother that emerges in all its stark simplicity and purity Part eulogy and part confession A Stone Boat is a luminous and moving evocation of the love between a son and his moth. I don t think I ve ever a read an emptier book on dying death and grief The characters are all deeply unlikeable and not in an interesting way The writing is precious at best and sloppy at worst I recall thinking that The Noonday Demon was a good book so I thought I d give this novel a go One might think that an author who could write so compellingly about depression might be able to manage a novel on death and dying A Stone Boat defies such an assumption At some point I had to decide whether to cross the Rubicon and continue with the novel I hate giving up on books but then I also hate wasting time on bad books when there are so many good ones waiting to be read The former trait won out over the latter conviction and so I carried on with it I think I could have sueezed two good books into the time frame it took me to read this bad one Time lost it s its own kind of grief
