Die Hummerkönige

CHARACTERS Die Hummerkönige Alexi Zentner ã 8 FREE DOWNLOAD FREE DOWNLOAD ☆ Die Hummerkönige Sie sind die Familie Kings die Könige von Loosewood Island Dieser ungestümen Insel zwischen Nova Scotia und Maine Karg ist es hier ursprünglich rau Doch die Kings sind mit dem Reichtum des Meeres gesegnet und widmen sich hier seit nunmehr dreihundert Jahren dem Hummerfang Als Brumfitt Kings der erste der Familie. Alexi Zentner s first novel Touch is one that has stuck in my mind with its evocative setting and wealth of surreal imagery a deer glittering with gold dust a building buried for a whole winter under thirty feet of snow the villain who refused to stay dead and so his second novel was one of the books I was most looking forward to this year Sadly The Lobster Kings doesn t live up to its predecessor I found it to be a confused mess of a novel The dose of magic realism which Zentner so skillfully intertwined throughout Touch is present again but instead of feeling integral here it feels like a box that has been ticked with the surreal elements confined to occasional chapters harking back to the mid 1700s and a character called preposterously Brumfitt Kings who comes from Ireland to Loosewood Island a fictional island somewhere between St John s and Maine whose ownership is disputed by both the US and Canada and founds a dynasty of lobster fishermen Brumfitt s wife who might be a selkie emerges from the sea one day bedecked in pearls and offers to Brumfitt and his line the bounty of the sea with one slight caveat the sea will claim back the first born son of every generation This and much else Brumfitt records in a series of journals and his paintings which he somehow finds time to knock out whilst working his lobster traps By the present day Brumfitt s paintings which seem to closely resemble the work of Winslow Homer despite being painted over a century earlier have become famous and acuired a devoted following art tourists and researchers come to the island every summer and the Kings still rule Loosewood Island in the form of Woody Kings and his three daughters Cordelia Rena and Carly Here Zentner tries to weave in a bit of Shakespeare with Woody representing King Lear And whilst in one scene he does divide up his kingdom between the three daughters the novel never becomes a reworking of the play and so I m left wondering what the point of the allusion was Mainly the plot of the novel resembles a Canadian version of Howard s Way the British tv series from the 1980s blended with a bad Western The lives of the islanders and their relationships are pure soap opera whilst the cutting war where the lines that secure lobster traps to buoys are cut by competitors and replaced with their own traps that develops between Loosewood Island and James Harbour on the mainland is both dull and ridiculous The Kings and the James Harbour Boys sound like the Earps and the Clantons and act like it too it all gets terribly gung ho and the dialogue descends to the level of a comic strip Harrison Ford famously told George Lucas that he could type this stuff but you sure as hell couldn t say it he d have had the same problem with Zentner There is something thrown in about the James Harbour boys using lobster trapping as a cover for smuggling meth but this is never fully developed Actually that is one of the main problems with the novel Zentner introduces plot strands and just leaves them dangling and whenever things start to slip from his control his default solution seems to be to kill a character off or get them shot at Eventually a villain emerges but he is so one dimensional and needlessly brutal he is hard to believe his assertion that Woody Kings is nothing but a bully who has no automatic rights to the waters echoed my own feelings yet Zentner seems to want us to think this view is part of his wickedness trying to think of a better word but wickedness suits the cartoonish characterisation The novel also spends a lot of time on the day to day of lobster fishing I ve learned one thing from this lobster fishing is incredibly boring The one saving grace of the novel is the narrator Cordelia Kings isn t the most original character but she s so plucky and feisty that the reader can t help but be engaged by her and like her The novel does contain some good scenes some arresting imagery but had this been the first time I d read Zentner I d have probably abandoned it halfway through Belonging one that has stuck in my mind with its evocative setting and wealth Cold Steel of surreal imagery a deer glittering with gold dust a building buried for a whole winter under thirty feet Immersion Bible Studies of snow the villain who refused to stay dead and so his second novel was Dolly Parton one PLANTES COMESTIBLES : cueillette et recettes des 4 saisons of the books I was most looking forward to this year Sadly The Lobster Kings doesn t live up to its predecessor I found it to be a confused mess Laigle de sang: Une enquête de linspecteur Andreas Auer -
