review The Tricksters The Tricksters Summary ä 9 Each house Harry feels as if she summoned them herself Are the Tricksters her own. It s hard not to give Mahy books all the stars possible because she is a great writer I am reminded of Neil Gaiman because of shared themes ghosts and houses that reconfigure themselves lets add Charles De Lint for the teen themes and the supernatural But really I think Mahy is greater than those she reminds me of because I suspect she predated all of them I ll have to do some investigation on that assertionBut about this book 34th of the way through it I was sure I had to read it again given what I learned in the course of reading it I was surprised surprised that when I was reading Pamela Dean or Elizabeth Hand two other writers my mind ran to with regard and blowing a few kisses here and there This is another book by an author from down under I seem to be doing those these day as I revisited Keri Hulme recently This might rank as a Christmas book if you can confront the idea of spending Christmas at the beach and enjoy how a culture uses a northern holiday with artificial Holly to serve up a beach meal with Christmas pudding as one of the courses The whole novel is about artifice how the artist relates to people they love or not so much Do they love their characters or are they critical of their creations when the integrity of their art is challenged What about family dynamics is being mysterious as alluring as being self consciously beautiful Young and appealing Asthmatic and curious I need to reread this What a complicated and touching book Social Science Research A Cross Section of Journal Articles for Discussion and Evaluation possible because she is a great writer I am reminded of Neil Gaiman because of shared themes ghosts and houses that reconfigure themselves lets add Charles De Lint for the teen themes and the supernatural But really I think Mahy is greater than those she reminds me of because I suspect she The Ophiuchi Hotline predated all of them I ll have to do some investigation on that assertionBut about this book 34th of the way through it I was sure I had to read it again given what I learned in the course of reading it I was surprised surprised that when I was reading Pamela Dean or Elizabeth Hand two other writers my mind ran to with regard and blowing a few kisses here and there This is another book by an author from down under I seem to be doing those these day as I revisited Keri Hulme recently This might rank as a Christmas book if you can confront the idea of spending Christmas at the beach and enjoy how a culture uses a northern holiday with artificial Holly to serve up a beach meal with Christmas The Person Readings in Human Nature pudding as one of the courses The whole novel is about artifice how the artist relates to The Deltoid Pumpkin Seed people they love or not so much Do they love their characters or are they critical of their creations when the integrity of their art is challenged What about family dynamics is being mysterious as alluring as being self consciously beautiful Young and appealing Asthmatic and curious I need to reread this What a complicated and touching book

review The Tricksters The Tricksters Summary ä 9 When three fascinating but sinister brothers mysteriously appear at her family's b. The recent popularity of THE CHANGEOVER can probably be linked to Sarah Rees Brennan s wicked funny review and Justine Larbalestier s eually enthusiastic review I m pleased as punched that people are reading about Laura Chant and Sonny Carlisle because they are an amazing couple But Margaret Mahy has written tons of books While some of them don t work for me THE TRICKSTERS may be even better than THE CHANGEOVERThat s right I like THE TRICKSTERS betterHow much do I like THE TRICKSTERS I once owned four copies One for me three to constantly loan out I think I m down to one loaner copy Before I owned these copies I lent mine to a friend who lived five hours away because it was that important that other people read it I wrote an essay on it This essay was for admission to the academic program I m now in The subject can be whittled down to Why Reading THE TRICKSTERS Is Just as Important as Reading Plato No reallyHarry real name Ariadne is the seventeen year old bookish uiet daughter lost in a large family Most of her excitement comes from secretly writing a torrid romance One day on holiday she jokingly marries the sea to entertain herself and her brother The next day three mysterious brothers show up at the house using names that clearly came from the bookshelf Ovid Hadfield and Felix Notably they all look like characters from her story Also the three men may all be the ghost of the same person Teddy Carnival the mysteriously dead son of the original owner of the vacation homeAs Harry and Felix fall in love Harry begins to realize her own power I can seem beautiful she tells someone who dares to threaten her Felix gains power from their love as well and neither of his brothers want that to happenTHE TRICKSTERS is sexy Harry and Felix only have implied sex but a book doesn t need an explicit scene to be sexy Margaret Mahy knows that and this coming of age tale is all about human sexuality without ever being crassMahy also pulls off a Megan Whalen Turner worthy twist when it comes to the family saga side of things She hides secrets so well that you don t even know you should be looking for them until they re revealed This makes subseuent readings richer as you realize how Mahy shaped the novel dropping numerous hints while using Harry s narration to direct your attention elsewhereBest of all Mahy trusts her reader s intelligence THE TRICKSTERS is sometimes confusing as Mahy rarely explains exactly what s going on You have to put it together yourself Often you have to make your own decision about what happened Her writing is heavy on character and atmosphere which keeps things moving smoothly even at the parts when you know you don t understand everything yet Mahy s best works are rich and decadent feasts The themes and action of THE TRICKSTERS demand your attention and if you give it you will be rewardedIf you re looking for a sexy and intelligent coming of age story cum family saga look no farther than THE TRICKSTERS If that s not what you re looking for you should read it anyway
