The uickening The Song of the Sea Loving Imogen Summer by Mari BiellaHow does she do it Channel Henry James I mean While it is grossly unfair to Biella to include all of her offerings in one review I want you to read ALL of them Like the ravenous sirens in The Song of the Sea gobbling up a hapless sailor spoiler alert I read all the above in succession They are that good Poor old Jake the fishermen say looking up from their nets as he walks along the harbour wall on chill grey days when the wind is up and the clouds are low He ain t been right since the accidentIt was just that he said singing pure and high and sweet the sweetest sound he had ever heard or could ever have imagined There were no words for this song was too ancient for languageJames noted for psychological thought experiments hovered over my shoulder as I read Loving Imogen a tale of twins of uestionable origin and a schoolmaster growing old and irrelevant alone suddenly cohabiting the same small house What Maisie Knew came to mind too because of the precocious nature of Biella s young charactersAnd so here he is amidst the debris of a spent life and a dead love an ageing man for whom no one cares An unenviable position he admits standing by the kitchen door and watching the dusk gather over the hills Most unenviable indeed Are you getting the picture This is seriously good writingThe uickening put me in mind of The Romance of Certain Old Clothes in that Biella s story is certainly Gothic a story of the revenge of the dead and another thought experiment about the effect upon a remaining sibling and parents when a child dies It is also unfair to doggedly compare Biella to James because she deserves her own place in modern writing She is imaginative meticulous in her choice of words creates amazingly atmospheric narrative and utterly enchanted this reader Somehow she manages to write in an almost 19th century voice acutely aware of the consciousness of her characters She has mastered point of view and interior monologue whilst writing about the supernatural She creates the conflict nostalgia the notion of the sublime we sometimes associate with the past a kind of romanticism which forces us to deal with her characters terrors and intense emotions on their terms We are pulled into their inner worlds Back then I thought that houses were but stone and wood and had no power other than that which we chose to bestow on them I thought that abandoned houses were only pitiful the haunts of mice and spiders and beetles and believed that nothing could uicken in empty rooms and silent spacesSummer brings us another ghost story in a village outside of London An old house and excitable women one paper blared the next day alongside an unflattering photograph of Peter scowling at the camera According to the rectory s owner Mr Peter Anderson the supposed ghost is an all too human prankster She loved walking through the rooms at dusk watching as the darkness took them in its arms and rocked them to sleep Biella is also a very good story tellerSo gentle reader if you ve grown weary of the usual modern vapid offerings spice up your literary appetite with a hapless sailor or two maybe a tasty spectre maybe these wonderful ghost stories

Read & Download É eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF µ Mari Biella The uickening characters à eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF Mari Biella µ 8 Free read Entist finds his scepticism being challenged by inexplicable eventsA psychological ghost story set in the Victorian Age 'The uickening. When I first came across this novel I was less than enthused by the title which has been used elsewhere several timesWithin the first few pages I was disabused of any idea that the title was an indication of the standard of writing withinThe writing is erudite and masterful The apprehension created by Mari Biella in this ghost story is remorseless in intensity and almost unbearable The style was classically simple without all the bells and whistles the fripperies of blood and guts usually added by modern ghost and horror writers It reminded me strongly of MR James Wilkie Collins and particularly the novel by Henry James Turn of the Screw one of my favourite novels of all time But this writer has her own methodology for scaring the pants off the reader that fully updates these supreme authors without losing any of their powerful storytelling abilitiesThe scenario is a familiar one A solitary house in the middle of a deserted countryside A family descending into insanity as the past creeps insidiously into the future and the power of the supernatural slides through the windows of perceptionWhat separates this story from others is the near perfection of the writer s adherence to a beautifully sparse and compelling style of writing and a refusal to dissolve the tension with premature thrills and spills Combined these factors make this book one that will live long in memory and prompt one to avoid lonely houses in lonely placesRestrained and ultimately disturbing than overtly visceral novels of the genre if there is one classical ghost story you should read in 2013 this is the one Recommended
