    MOBI ð DOC Hellgoing Stories PaperbackFREE ì LYNN COADY Hellgoing StoriesOh how I wanted to love these stories I had very much enjoyed Coady's previous work The Antagonist and with the knowledge that this recently won the Giller I expected Sadly I was left disappointedShort stories need to walk a fine line between giving the reader enough information to understand the characters and the story without taking up too much time In reading these stories it felt as though there were huge swathes gaping holes in which pertinent information was missing The stories themselv

    MOBI ð DOC Hellgoing Stories PaperbackFREE ì LYNN COADY Hellgoing StoriesI don't like books that make me feel stupidThis book makes me feel stupid It makes me feel like I must be missing something Not only are the protagonists unsympathetic but there are no clear conflicts no resolutions nothing that suggests a POINT to reading them Yes they're very interesting character studiesYes they show a slice of lifeBut why shine the light on these sad vignettes if not to bring some awareness some consideration some analysis?It's like pointing at a disabled person in public and once everyone is looking shaking the head and muttering Isn't that sad?

    MOBI ð DOC Hellgoing Stories PaperbackFREE ì LYNN COADY Hellgoing StoriesI closed the final page of this collection of short stories a slim volume doesn't take long to power through them thinking that this was a curious choice to win the Giller Prize at first blush this wasn't my favourite Canadian book of the year; this wasn't even my favourite Canadian book of short stories of the year This passage that I flagged early on persisted in sticking out in my mind Jane flops herself off Ned like a seal grunting also like a seal That's what she feels like at such times All torso no limbs A long tapering creature new and primordial like something pooped out of something else If that isn't the strangest sex scene I've ever read I don't know what is My mind kept returning to Why 'pooped'? What a bizarre choice of word especially in a capital L Literary work and this brain worm wouldn't let me go And the it gnawed at me the I wondered if tha

    MOBI ð DOC Hellgoing Stories PaperbackFREE ì LYNN COADY Hellgoing StoriesThis is not the Lynn Coady I'd come to expect This Lynn Coady did not boldly walk that fine line between tragedy and comedy She did not lay bare the souls of her characters in a way that makes the reader root for them or even love them No this Lynn Coady is dead serious She writes stories about mostly women many middle aged in various stages of despair There is an alcoholic a woman whose mother has recently died a woman whose father is seriously ill an ambivalent nun a writer whose losing her faith in the power of words and a woman whose lover abruptly walks away 10 years into their relationship There is little to no fight in these women What we have is resignation fear helplessness and boredom They are a defeated cast I much preferred the old Lynn Coady She was a lot fun

    MOBI ð DOC Hellgoing Stories PaperbackFREE ì LYNN COADY Hellgoing StoriesThis book was totally unexpected It won the prestigious Giller Prize this year and even though I'm not a real fan of short stories I expected it to be enjoyable It was not; at least not to me I found this book of nine short stories difficult to get through I only read seven of the nine but I didn't really understand much about the stories Some were totally confusing like the story of the nun who made hospital visits and discovered a 14 year old girl with severe anorexia The nun thinks she is reaching this girl and she thinks she'll get her to eat but it doesn't work The girls keeps coming back We never find out what happens to the girl Frustrating And what about the story about the new bride who engages in sado masochistic activities with her husband in the baseme

    MOBI ð DOC Hellgoing Stories PaperbackFREE ì LYNN COADY Hellgoing StoriesLynn Coady's new story collection Hellgoing brings together nine self contained stories that take a realistic and thought provoking look at a wide range of human relationships in today's world Reading them we are pushed or pulled into something like a voyeur role observing in close up fragments of ongoing or evolving relationships between an array of distinct characters be they in couples with family or friends or crossing paths in professional or casual encounters Some of the stories can take you on a bit of a rough ride; they rarely are smooth easy or the content just pleasant While they might leave us with a sense of unease they also stimulate us to consider deeply the underlying uestions and issues that the author raises Are they a reflection of contemporary reality or at minimum of certain aspects of it?
