    [Sight AUTHOR Jessie Greengrass] E–book ✓ Jessie Greengrass There is some beautiful writing here particularly the meditations on grief The whole thing fails though because mostly what’s here is pedantic dense prose academic than fictional It’s not a novel IMHO—it’s an overly long rather pretentious essay; while I cannot recommend it some other great readers out there certainly doI have much much to say in my BookTube review

Sight AUTHOR Jessie GreengrassSight is an ambitious and introspective novel in which our unnamed narrator recounts her experience with new motherhood while at he same La Batalla time comingo erms with he death of her own mother and grandmother To say Math and Science Workout for the Act, 4th Edition: Extra Practice for an Excellent Score that I have conflicting feelings abouthis novel would be an understatement it s like every singular element of his novel draws wo completely contradictory "reactions from me I both admire it and find it insufferable at he exact same imeLet s start with "from me I both admire it and find it insufferable at I Am Mr. Spock the exact sameimeLet s start with prose which is what everyone is going o be alking about when hey alk about Sight and rightfully so It feels like Jessie Greengrass s sentences go on for days each one carefully crafted o show very evident echnical skill Some of hese sentences are striking with poignant meaningful commentary on he human condition I want only what I Boston Connection[Krimi] think we all must wanto come off as better Edmund Burke Natural Law than I ought generous sure kinderhan I know myself The Haunted Halloween Carnival to be but I want alsoo be known o be counted and o be excused I can have both Some not so much All morning caught up in he business of appointments I had forgotten o feel sick but now it returned he constant ueasy ostinato over which rose exhaustion s disharmonious cadence a progression paused before Unfit to be a Slave the point of resolution aching forwards I mean I had morning sickness would have sufficed but okayAfter a while of immersing yourself inhis prose what first feels lush and fresh begins o feel methodical and calculated even he variances of syntax have a very distinct rhythm Magazine Writing: And the New Literature (Classic Reprint) tohem At imes I would get lulled into it and at others it would feel like it was written by a particularly verbose robot The interesting hing about Sight is Future Crimes: Everything Is Connected, Everyone Is Vulnerable, and What We Can Do About It that while it endeavorso reflect on he human condition it does so in such a measured way it s almost as if it s devoid of all humanity This is a book and a character hat wants From a Writer's Notebook to be ableo reduce Women and Power in the Middle East the human experienceo a series of elements which can be scientifically categorized made evident by A Year of Weddings the heavy integration of medical history intohe narrativeThat brings me o my next point which is That Sight Is Very Light On The Sight is very light on he This entire book is driven by he narrator s fixation on her relationship with her mother on whether or not she wants o have a child on her ownership of her own body and while I d The Political Economy of China's Economic Zones take character driven novels over plot driven novels any day I hesitateo even call his character driven because by he end of it we still know hardly anything about his person For all he navel gazing in his novel we don even know where his character works Does she even have a job No his isn he point but it also makes it harder Colton Baby Homecoming to fully immerse yourself inhis character s worldThere s another line but Medicinal Plants of the Mountain West the price of sight is wonder s diminishment which Ihink not only sums up Keep Your Donors: The Guide to Better Communications Stronger Relationships this character s introspective journey but also for me sort of characterizeshe book as a whole This is a book which dives into Notes on Love and Courage themes which I ordinarily find interesting how well can weruly know other people how well can we know ourselves and examines Wounds of the Father: A True Story of Child Abuse, Betrayal, and Redemption them sohoroughly it leaves almost no room for Crusade the readero actively engage I feel like his is one of hose novels which attempts The New State: Group Organization the Solution of Popular Government to ask uestions of its readers without being particularly interested inheir answers because you can find all of Money Galore the answers in its pages I mean maybehat s not even a bad A Faraway Smell of Lemon thing It just doesn get me particularly excitedI admire The Scourging Angel: The Black Death in the British Isles theechnical skill Curfew In The City that went intohis novel but it ultimately didn leave as strong of an impression on me as I had hoped it would But here s a lot of Knockout thoughtful commentary inhese pages and it s worth a read if you like your books heavy on he philosophy Thank you o Netgalley Hogarth Press and Jessie Greengrass for Once Upon a River the advanced copy provided in exchange for an honest review Hmmm Lots of conflicting feelings abouthis one but he I ve hought about കൊടകരപുരാണം Kodakarapuranam this bookhe less I ve liked it Video review here Like my GR friends Neil and Sarah I hought I would give his book 2 stars The extraordinary first novel from he author of he prizewinning An Account of The Golden Section the Decline ofhe Great Auk According o One Who Saw ItIt seemed at imes an act of
