    ePUB Ali Smith ´ ´ The Accidental PDF/EPUB Ç accidental download, The Accidental KindleI really enjoyed Ali Smith’s How to be Both this one for me was hit and miss A dysfunctional or normal family – pretty much the same thing nowadays – rents a holiday home in Norfolk One day a mysterious stranger a woman called Amber arrives and ends up moving in with them All four members of the family metaphorically are very much waiting for an amber light to turn to green and Amber’s redemptive role is to reveal how this light might be changed The first problem for me was Amber herself She’s something of a cliché as an inspirational free spirit More of a new age traveller than a sorceress or annunciation angel Her remedies for the supposedly stifling middle class malaise gripping the family this malaise isn't altogether convincing are somewhat hackneyed She introduces the son Magnus to sex and teaches Astrid to be hostile to public opinion and property In fact there’s a kind of hollow hippy philosophy at the back of this novel Amber doesn’

    ePUB Ali Smith ´ ´ The Accidental PDF/EPUB Ç accidental download, The Accidental KindleI feel like there was an age or it IS that age where writers love to explore with much keenness the family unit for it is the perfect structure with which to scrutinize its individual parts The Corrections White Teeth The Red House the list is almost infinite this one a accessible and modern Sound and Fury is a doozy Like what is happening here? is the main question through this dense but very readable firework of a novel All 4 or five protagonists are given a very democratic framework in which to display their various personalities We trace their singular trajectories their personalities bleed unto each vignette like a soul to some artifact authentic life stories theseThe crazy play with structure is indeed the premiere element which makes the novel unforgettable

    ePUB Ali Smith ´ ´ The Accidental PDF/EPUB Ç accidental download, The Accidental KindleI cannot believe this book is on the 1001 books list Do the people who write the list not like people who read books any? Why would they punish us so? 1001 list writers once again I question you Why?I didn't enjoy reading it and to say I found the story a pointless and unrewarding read is probably an understatement The book seemed to be nothing than a series of poorly strung together literary devices or maybe it was a vehicle for the trundling out of a series of literary devices to show how many literary devices there areAnyway whatever they made the story seem too contrived and dull None of the characters were engaging nor did they warrant any sympathy empathy or any other kind of pathy A prime example being Dr Michael Smart all round nauseating self obsessed academic with a penchant for thinking and talking about himself in the third person and for bedding his students Note the two activities need not be mutually

    ePUB Ali Smith ´ ´ The Accidental PDF/EPUB Ç accidental download, The Accidental KindleI don't relish giving a book one star but The Accidental was the rare book that I found so unreadable that I couldn't even finish it The writing style was very affected and intentionally obtuse making the book unpleasant and difficult to read The characters were whiny and self involved beyond all reason There were huge logic gaps such as why Amber was allowed to hang about the house uninvited and unknown to all of them hello? and pithy ob

    ePUB Ali Smith ´ ´ The Accidental PDF/EPUB Ç accidental download, The Accidental KindleA flat out triumph of structure style shifting narrative voices rhythm and language A pitch perfect technical masterpiece Split into three components—the beginning the middle and the end—the story moves between four perspectives daughter son father mother Each section describes various events around a holiday trip to Norwich and the arrival of Amber a charismatic drifter who changes her behaviour to accommodate each personA very tight free indirect style is deployed to bring the third person narrator as close to each character as possible from Astrid sulky teenager daughter and her show off vocab Magnus sulky teenage son and his mathematical attempts to work through grief Michael philandering father and his embarrassing poetic endeavours and Eva writer mother and her resigned melancholy her cosy middle England spirit Each v

    ePUB Ali Smith ´ ´ The Accidental PDF/EPUB Ç accidental download, The Accidental KindleThe stranger who arrives in mysterious circumstances and turns a household on its ear may be familiar literary trope but Ali Smith does it with such panache and vivacity the familiar becomes fresh and revelatory The Accidental shows the rusted and broken bits inside the moral compass of the Smarts a bourgeois British family of four on summer holiday in a drab northern England town Eve Smart is mid list novelist and mother of 17 year old Magnus and 12 year old Astrid Michael Smart husband and step father is a philandering professor of English It becomes all to easy to detest the Smart mère et père for they are eye rollingly entitled and pretentious but this novel is about the kids And it is in their voices that Sm

    ePUB Ali Smith ´ ´ The Accidental PDF/EPUB Ç accidental download, The Accidental KindleThis was phenomenal Skillfully structured beautifully written with a story that kept me flipping pages past my bedtime The story is told from four different POVs with a stream of consciousness bent and occasional experimental flare as in the segment narrated in poetry by the serially philandering husbandstep fatherEnglish professor Michael Twelve year old Astrid’s imaginative flights of fancy pre teen jargon and maybe hints of ADD were an amusing ride don’t be alarmed it’s not all like this Wifemother and blocked writer Eve grapples with the memory and problems of her own family of origin while she struggles with professional challenges in a project that consists of the “Genuine article” series “autobiotruefictinterviews” although the articles are actually quite speculative Magnus’s teenage angst has legitimate foundations he’s been involved in a prank gone
