Coming of age in middle America, eighteen-year-old Rosemary evaluates how her entire youth was defined by the presence and forced removal of an endearing chimpanzee who was secretly regarded as a family member and who Rosemary loved as a sister.

    Never Let Me Go de Kazuo Ishiguro (BookshelfMonstrosity)
    BookshelfMonstrosity: Though it is less witty than We Are All Completely Beside Ourselves, Never Let Me Go is another poignant and insightful story about biological experimentation and human identity. Both novels feature lyrical prose, well-developed characterization, and haunting tones of melancholy.… (més)

Original writing style with an interesting and complex story about memory, family, and animals.

This story helps explain and support my visceral reaction to the suggestion that I get "rid of" my old cranky dog. I can't. He's family. ( )

“In 1996, ten years had passed since I’d last seen my brother, seventeen since my sister disappeared.”

As the story opens, protagonist Rose is a student at UC Davis. It is apparent that her family story is unusual and somewhat dysfunctional. As Rose tells her story, she flashes backward and forward, such that pieces and parts are gradually revealed. The reader also gradually becomes aware of the narrator’s foibles and gaps in her memories. It is obvious that one of her father’s scientific experiments did not go as planned. I do not want to reveal too much since this is a book best read without preconceptions. It is beautifully written and crafted. The premise is unique and creative. I very much enjoyed the incremental revealing of a fuller picture of what has happened in Rose’s life and the reasons for her psychological traumas. Themes include communication, love, family, trust, remorse, and bonds between living creatures.

Absolutely loved this book! I would have finished it sooner, had I not spent so much time looking up stuff mentioned in the book. Crossover connections up the ying-yang. If you're non-vegan, you won't feel so strongly about the book; but it's heart-rending, some of the subject matter that's covered. Karen Joy Fowler is one of only 2-3 authors I follow, and for good reason. ( )

Read this book, but don't read any reviews of it beforehand, if you want to avoid any spoilers. I tell you already, most of the reviews in newspapers and elsewhere are positive. The big twist is hard to conceal, for it is paramount to the discussion about the book. After I read the twist, I felt a little bit disappointed, so surprising it was, I didn't really know what to expect further. Then Karen Joy Fowler slowly, but surely, made me fall in love with the idea, the knowledge, and the characters. It made me look back at my own childhood and family, and made me wonder what and how did my behavior change. It opens our eyes to parts of our world we usually choose to ignore, and it does so without judging or forcing us to see, wittily and beautifully combining a lot of facts and fiction. There will be some knowledge you'll take with you forever. It is the kind of book which offers both a great story, and opens your eyes to the world around you. The narrator, who is somewhat the protagonist, too, has an amazingly young and amusing voice, it doesn't give any clue about the real age of the author. It's the kind of book you read in a few days.

Such an amazing book. Could not put this down. She is so gifted ( )

Fowler, best known for her novel “The Jane Austen Book Club,” is a trustworthy guide through many complex territories: the historical allure and dicey ethics of experimental psychology, not to mention academic families and the college towns of Bloomington and Davis.

... Your experience as apes, gentlemen—to the extent that you have something of that sort behind you—cannot be more distant from you than mine is from me. But it tickles at the heels of everyone who walks here on earth, the small chimpanzee as well as the great Achilles.

—Franz Kafka, "A Report for an Academy"

What I found in books was daughters indulged and daughters oppressed, daughters who spoke loudly and daughters made silent. I found daughters imprisoned in towers, beaten and treated as servants, beloved daughters sent off to keep house for hideous  monsters. Mostly, when girls were sent away, they were orphans, like Jane Eyre and Anne Shirley, but not always. Gretel was taken with her brother into the forest and abandoned there. Dicey Tillerman was left with her siblings in a parking lot at a shopping mall. Sara Crewe, whose father adored her, was still sent away to live at school without him. All in all, there was a wide range of possibility, and Fern's treatment fit easily inside it.
Where you succeed will never matter so much as where you fail.
