And what about Barbara in the looney bin? Then there was the ghost thing what was that all about? Was there a ghost? What was the point of it? Did it have somet

review Another World

Another World review ê 7 Pat Barker ☆ 7 review Summary Ñ eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB ☆ Pat Barker Plagued by nightmarish memories of the trenches where he saw his brother die Nick's grandfather Gordie lays dying as Nick struggles to keep the peace in his increasingly fractious. I seem to be on a uest for awkward books as right after finishing Cunningham s A Home at the End of the World I have stumbled upon Another World by Pat Barker I was feeling hungry for another book of Barker s as almost two years have passed after I finished the Regeneration trilogy It fascinated me at that time in so many senses that I was a bit afraid of reading another book by Barker lest it should disappoint me Another World did not disappoint me at all and I believe now was the right book to follow the trilogy The action of Another World takes place in our time and revolves around a family whose main characters are a university professor Nick and his grandfather Geordie a 101 years old veteran of WWI There are a lot of other characters who are important and at the same time they remain somewhat in the background not fully developed not fully understood I feel that the author wanted them to remain this way getting the book to closer resemble real life When I think about Geordie I try to imagine the characters from Regeneration living in our time and society and I fail But there he is a living fossil a relic from the times of the World War I placed in our days One of the main themes Barker analyses is memory Geordie s traumatic war memories are suddenly becoming stronger as he is getting closer to his deathbed Throughout the book and its different characters Barker uestions the consistency and permanence of our memory suggesting that it may be malleable instead changing and adapting together with the environment and perceptions of other peopleAnother topic Barker skillfully analyses and which I found uncomfortable and at the same time captivating is death I had a feeling that no detail no dismaying aspect of it has escaped the author s eye Reading the passages of the book was difficult at times as it brought to surface some related memories of my own but it also brought me closer to the story and its characters A really great book recommended to those who are not afraid of being lead out of their comfort zone

Normally I m a slow reader but this one I read uite fastAt the time I was temporarily working at a residential hospital and the 30min train ride from and to my house was spent reading this Maybe it was the mindset I was in at that time that made me connect with the character of Geordie and mainly with the relationship and process between him and Nick the caretaker I thought it was a great way to sincerely describe such a processNow I also understand how some of you were frustrated with this book mainly those who didn t have something so specific to take from it like I hadGeordie and Nick were only a part of the book and I too felt a little disappointed that the book didn t explore all the potential of the beginning This was my initial digestion of Another Worldbut then I realized I was getting distracted with small things and when I stopped caring about what was missing or what could have been there it was clear Another World is a subtle approach to a tricky subject We have three characters haunted by mistakes done innocently or the desireimpulse to do so in the case of Gareth This reminded me of Ian McEwan s AtonementAt first I thought all the mystery behind the wall painting and the child like figures appearances relating to the Fanshawes story were too much and were taking a direction I did not want the story to take and it didn t Focusing on the subject mistakes like that or even the possibility of having done such a thing as innocent and unconscious like Muriel s story Geordie s foggy memory or Gareth s impulses will haunt you like a ghost forever I do think this main is very well explored by the author through all the different story lines it captivates me and I now find myself thinking about this book and the flaws it shows in human natureAfter all this there s one thing that annoyed me and it is Miranda and why she is a dead end in terms of character In the beginning she was the character I was most interested in and kept waiting for something to develop there but it never happened maybe this would have been the fifth star on my rating
