Description

The main thing this did well is take into consideration the many different experiences we all had during the pandemic. The way some of us were forced to stay home despite home never having been a safe space. The way some of us resented working all through the pandemic while others were able to have the spring and summer off and then some. The way some of us had it off involuntarily and without government benefits to support, digging a deeper and deeper hole and not giving us so much as a stepping stool to help ourselves out. I can’t say it’s all encompassing, but I was impressed by how much it did cover. I do not want to watch a live-stream play with no audience. I want to be in the theatre, and if I can't be in the theatre, I'd rather have nothing She has to keep the mug [her son] painted ten years ago at one of those paint-your-own-mug places, though it also has an unappealing handle and is never used."

Maybe she’ll die without ever touching another human, maybe she’s had her last hug, handshake, air-kiss.”Yes at first, there were so many grump and fuss about limitations. I know it's hard and has a serious of consequences, but really? So bad you compare with world wars?! The only thing we have to do is stay at home, Okay it's our home, is it so awful? I'm not going to judge but this was too much. This book is the latest by the author of (most recently) “Ghost Wall” in 2018 and “Summerwater” (in 2020). It will I think appeal strongly to fans of the latter as it shares much in common with that novel: a setting on a single day; a remote and harshly beautiful countryside setting; a build up of narrative tension; a series of third party point of view chapters (albeit in this book the chapters circle round the same group of four characters) – all written in a largely internal, loosely stream-of-consciousness style, often a little repetitive and circular (albeit in the way of people’s actual thoughts) and with clearly distinct internal voices for each character. Kate, an unhappy one, who couldn't stay in a place, if see her from the good side, an outdoor person. She is a single mum and really cares about her teenage son. In the beginning, she was just looking irresponsible. You see, with some patience, characters reveal themselves and this was beautiful. A masterfully tense, deeply empathetic novel about lives stilled and re-examined, and the uncertainty and danger of the world that surrounds them. I was completely riveted by the central questions of its narrative, and by its tender, insightful exploration of the times we are living through -- Megan Hunter, author of The End We Start From

The Fell reflects the lives we have been living for the last 18 months in a way no other writer has dared to do. There is wit, there is compassion, there is a tension that builds like a pressure cooker. This slim, intense masterpiece is one of my best books of the year -- Rachel JoyceI'm at that stage of life where I'm sorting out what's important and want to organize my 'stuff' and set loose any extra baggage. So, the following sentences resonated with me: She conjures the fretful confinement of the pandemic with colossal skill . . . deft and evocative . . . the operation to rescue Kate is nail-biting. There are also scenes of unbearable poignancy . . . shrewd and moving * i * From the award-winning author of Ghost Wall and Summerwater, Sarah Moss's The Fell is a riveting novel of mutual responsibility, personal freedom, and the ever-nearness of disaster.
