I wasn t captivated by The Tiger s Wife so I almost wasn t going to read this But I kept reading so much about it that my interest was piued and I have to say that I was very captivated by this western story There are two narratives which for most of the novel felt very disconnected but when they did it was an amazing thing Lurie a Middle Eastern immigrant is brought to Missouri by his father in 1856 When his father dies Lurie is sold to the Coachman who picks up the dead and robs graves He finds brothers in Donovan and Hobb Mattie and soon becomes an outlaw Nora s is the second narrative and it s 1893 in Amargo Arizona Territory where homesteading is tough and living on this parched land during a drought can be brutal It s particularly hard for Nora whose husband is missing and then her two sons as she tries to keep her home while caring for her young son Toby who sees a beast and her husband s niece who holds seances Nora is so thirsty and the writing is so spectacular so was I because I felt as if I was there There is death here and whether or not there are ghosts here is a uestion that the reader will have to reconcile for themselves Is his lost brother Hobb a ghost or does Lurie just imagine Hobb s want that makes him steal Is Evelyn Nora s daughter who died as a baby and has grown beside Nora through the years an apparition or is Nora s imagining her as a way of dealing with her grief and the secret she holds I know this might sound eerie but for me it wasn t I can t forget to mention Lurie s camel Burke who is his best friend and confidante Camels in the west So of course this had me searching to find out if this was true and it was There was a United States Camel Corp an army experiment to use camels as pack animals s slow going at times and it took a while for the two narratives to connect but it was worth the wait to get to that moment where a sip of water meant everything in this time of desolation and despair Beautifully written and highly recommended I won t hesitate to read Tea Obreht s next bookI received an advanced copy of this book from Random House through NetGalley

Téa Obreht Ì 8 Download Read ↠ eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF Ì Téa Obreht Inland AUTHOR Téa Obreht Download ó 108 A momentous expedition across the West The way in which Nora's and Lurie's stories intertwine is the surprise and suspense of this brilliant novelMythical lyrical and sweeping in scope Inland is grounded in true but little known history It showcases all of Téa Obreht's talents as a writer as she subverts and reimagines the myths of the American West making them entirely and unforgettably her own. We were bound up you and IThough it break our hearts we had as little choice then as we have now This is one of those books that I ve been dreading writing the review for because nothing I say can really convey what makes it so great I like literary fiction but it s rare that I will pick up anything that s straight up literature This particular book interested me for two reasons the historical western context and the promise of supernatural elementsInland doesn t disappoint on either front The story follows two main characters Lurie of the Mattie gang and Nora Lark of a small town called Amargo in the Arizona territory It isn t until the very end that the reader comes to understand how and why these two stories are being told side by side That s all I m saying about that because it s just better that you know nothing going inThis is a character driven story with Nora s part of it happening over I think the course of one day from morning to night She often reminisces on things that happened in the past her relationship with her husband and people in the town the birth and lives of her children etc These parts can be very slow but they all contribute to painting the picture of Nora s life and the people in itLife in Arizona isn t easy and every day has been a struggle There are a few supernatural elements to her story as well Her niece by marriage Josie is a medium conducting seances with the dead and her son Toby has been seeing a strange beast roaming their land Nora believes both things are just figments of wild imaginations And what did you ever learn from me save to keep to yourself and look over your shoulder In contrast to Nora we have Lurie He s a Turkish immigrant that is orphaned as a child and eventually falls in with the Mattie gang He gets on the wrong side of the law early in the book and we follow his story as he runs from Marshall Berger and from his past Lurie also has a supernatural ability to see and speak to the dead If they touch him he feels their last wants and they consume him as his own needsThe contrast in their stories is brilliant Between the two of these characters it s easy to assume Lurie would be the least likable and that the reader would come to care deeply for Nora the struggling innocent ranch wife But Obreht brilliantly turns this assumption on it s head by making Nora the unlikeable of the two She can sometimes be cruel to those around her including her husband and children but most of all her niece and she holds some clear prejudices against the local native population Meanwhile Lurie proves himself to be a man capable of caring deeply for others and a man maybe searching for redemption The longer I livethe I have come to understand that extraordinary people are eroded by their worries while the useless are carried ever forward by their delusions Despite it s slow pacing the book is so hard to put down Different little mysteries are introduced along the way while other interesting little connections and reveals are being made not between Nora and Lurie but within the narrative of each of their separate lives Different story elements and characters in the story return at the most unexpected times keeping the reader surprised throughout It s a dramatic story that feels perfectly mundane and I m still in awe of itLurie s parts are written in second person though I won t tell you who he is addressing The writing itself is gorgeous It isn t as impactful as say The Mere Wife but it s emotional and often left me feeling a little wistful By the end of it I was in tearsThis review has probably rambled on for far too long already and I haven t remotely done the book justice Just know if any part of this story or review appeals to you at all it s well worth picking up and reading through to the end where the reveals and realizations will surprise and haunt you for a long time to come Thank you to the publisher for providing an ARC for review
