characters ☆ Händelser vid vatten 109 Free download ✓ E-book, or Kindle E-pub ê Kerstin Ekman characters Händelser vid vatten Förändrat av hyggen vägnät och grustäkter Kvar är de namnlösa platserna i starrens rike gungande våta tuvor och sorlande vatten under marken Vattnet viskar och jämrar isande klart eller sugande svart I sommarens bleka nattljus tycks händelser och platser sväva och vandra lika svårgripbara och tvetydiga som människors minnen och handlingar. I simply could not connect with this book It has been critically acclaimed I can even understand why that is so From a technical standpoint it is brilliant The narrative voice revolves around three main characters Birger T rbj nnsson a rural doctor Annie Raft an unwed mother and Johan Brandbert a sensitive misfit among four half brothers and a brutal domineering father The third person viewpoint in each case frees the author to expound unreliable narratives with convincing authority At times a character will simply not have connected the relationship between two events At other times a relevant memory has simply been forgotten At other times a critical fact is being concealed from scrutiny For example Birger the doctor alludes to marital problems with his wife Barbro On page 33 we are led to believe Birgen and his friend ke the newly appointed district police chief are merely enjoying a brief fishing trip while Barbro convenes with a group of ecology activists There is only a hint of disuiet when he casually mentions that Barbro didn t want to celebrate Christmas the year before By p 51 he entertains the thought that she won t be returning home This of course arouses our curiosity In succeeding chapters his recollections begin to document a marriage in dissolution He deals with Barbro s increasingly passionate denunciation of environmental affronts in a chapter beginning on p87 with an odd passivity The recollections he chooses to relate paint a picture of an overwrought woman magnifying the hostility of neighbors and the long term damage of clear cutting the forests Only later do we learn of a significant event and the connection to Birger s own emotional withdrawal Time after time Ekman repeats this pattern forcing the reader to re evaluate conclusions that seemed obvious before another revelation Is there ever an unambiguous truthEkman employs numerous elements to sustain a mood that ranges from somber to creepy The opening chapters of Annie s story occur at Midsummer The lingering light intruding on the nighttime sky lends an eerie unnatural vibe Annie and her six year old daughter Mia wander between a river and forested hills searching for the commune they plan to join Their physical discomfort is portrayed through the cloud of insects that hover and bite them The land beneath their feet seems alive The tussocks looked like scrubby skulls sticking out of the earth the birches were twisted and full of knots On the last stretch down to the river they cut across some marshland that swayed under their feet They could hear the water now a murmur as talkative as the streams but with several voices p47The people in the story seem to mirror some of this hostile indifference Annie and Mia linger in a fishing tackle shop owned by a man named Lil Ola Lennartsson Four men Johan s father and half brothers enter and suddenly fall silent The owner looks at Annie She realized he didn t want them in there any longer and that made her feel ill at ease She took Mia s hand and went out The moment she had closed the door she heard the voices raised again p29Sometimes a main character will be struck by inexplicable anxiety Here is a scene of Annie at the commune The first time she had walked down from the pasture and followed the stream in among the lichen festooned trees she had suddenly been frightened right in the middle of a step Not by any sound but frightened from within icily and inexorably warned by an instinct she had never before known existed within her She immediately turned around and started running back p178In Annie s story the isolation of the commune intensifies our sense of foreboding The daily mantra of cooperation and openness is undercut by an obvious artificiality which denies natural emotions of like dislike unspoken hostility jealousy and most important secrecy The ideals of the commune are constraining rituals just as the conventions of regular society Oddly enough the three characters barely interact with each other Instead the reader is forced to follow three separate stories occurring in real time simultaneously The stories are told in short choppy chapters Prospective readers are advised to keep a note pad close by and annotate by page number since the chapters are unnumbered Readers might also simply want to add the name of the main character at the beginning of each new chapter The connecting event in the story is a gruesome murder of two campers The identities of the two victims are almost irrelevant One of them is not even identified or rather divulged until 20 years later Annie stumbles on the corpses while trying to locate the commune She encounters Johan briefly in the forest and 20 years later seems to recognize him as the man dropping her daughter off late one night Birgen and ke arrive at the scene to investigate and interrogate any potential witnesses Much of my problem with this book was due to its initial presentation as a dark crime story The crime links the characters and precipitates a trauma that alters the course of their lives However its solution is almost an afterthought The crime is of a catalyst than a focal point Second I never really connected with any of the three characters I can t explain why but in a novel of over 400 pages this was an insurmountable problem for me It was a struggle to even reach the ending The accelerated pace in the concluding chapters of the book failed to offset the extremely slow pace of the earlier chapters As one review has pointed out this book is not for the impatient
