Excellent writing!

A very emotionally raw, well-written exploration into the lives of a family affected by the husband/father's death on an ocean liner twenty some years earlier. The flashbacks are interwoven with the wife and son's present day. Lots of subtle metaphor and every day dealings with such lasting effects. The prose is simple but so effective. Such a well-crafted novel.

I had mixed feelings about the stories in this book. Some were fantastic, others I found hard to get through, or I skipped parts because I wasn't as interested, mostly because of the writing style. I was somewhat disappointed that many of the stories in this book were very normative, but many of them were satisfyingly nostalgic for a Newfoundlander living away.

I devoured this in two sittings. Beautiful writing, raw and poignant.

I didn't realize that I had read another Lisa Moore sometime ago until I went to put this book in so I guess that means I like Lisa Moore. I gave this book a bit higher mark than my other but I really can't compare because they are such different stories. I loved everything about this book from the pace and flow between past and present to the evolution of her characters. My usual pattern is that I love a book because I can relate to and like the protagonist and this is true about "February", I really liked Helen, the protagonist. She was true to herself and grieved in a very human way - like no-one else. She was no-nonsense and got on with her life as best she could after the disaster. The ending was perfect.… (lisätietoja)
