    review ✓ In My Father's Den In My Father's DenThe film In My Father's Den was so remarkable that immediately after watching it I wanted to read the novel upon which it was based It took nearly four years to get my hands on it as it was out of print until recently and to my knowledge is only being published again in New Zealand I read it in two evenings Read Devoured Whatever Darker than the film by orders of magnitude the novel is an intensely intimate and unflinching look at a deeply flawed man and the eually flawed system which helped to shape him Paul Prior is no monster but he's no saint either and what makes him fascinating is

    review ✓ In My Father's Den In My Father's DenI chose to read this book as my mother recommended it to me as a great read as well as Maurice Gee is a highly recommended New Zealand author so I was uite interested to read one of his novels As In my fathers den is written by a New Zealand author it ticks off this categoryThis novel is about a seventeen year old girl called Celia Inverarity who is brutally murdered while walking home Paul Prior who narrates the story is Celia's teacher who was the last person to see her alive therefore he becomes a main suspect in the murder case Paul goes back to his childhood a lot throughout the book and you learn many secrets of his past such as the unfortunate death of his brotherMy favourite character in the story was Celia Celia was hard working

    review ✓ In My Father's Den In My Father's DenThis book was okay I just wasn't convinced by the story and the ending wasn't satisfying There's also a lot of back and forth between the main character's present timeline and his childhood which is something I'm generally never a fan of It was good in terms of writing and characterisation and setting and all that especially cool to get a gli

    review ✓ In My Father's Den In My Father's DenWhat a gripping story It starts off very direct with a newspaper article about the discovery of a murdered teenager Celia Inverarity In the article 'Mr Paul Prior the dead girl's English teacher said that he had been asked by the police not to discuss his interview with Celia yesterday afternoon' And the story then takes us into a first person account by said Paul Prior moving from his childhood up to the present with a couple of forays into the ongoing investigation in the present dayThe characterisation is brilliant as we're taken into Paul's family his brother Andrew who is overly anxious to please their rigid fundamentalist mother the Down's Syndrome brother who died young and the father who escaped his wife's judgement in a den disguised as a storage room for poisons We meet a girl Paul loved and to whom he u

    review ✓ In My Father's Den In My Father's DenIn My Father's Den is one of the best books I've read this year To be honest I started it warily The opening with the newspaper articles was so poorly written unrealistic and didn't really grab my attention Luckily things only went up from there The storytelling was easy to follow even as it switched between the past and present day Thanks to the parts dedicated to the main character's childhood I felt like I understood his family's motives I liked the way Maurice Gee dealt with Paul Prior there was definitely something unsettling about him and that started to surface and as the story progressed The mystery and suspense was done well the red herrings were effective and con

    review ✓ In My Father's Den In My Father's DenMaurice Gee how I love your writing Everything about this story is pure Gee beautifully written with carefully chosen effective intelligent language every word has to be read The characters are flawed but likeable and the West of Auckland is evoked perfectly Allusions galore and references to schools of thinking I couldn't put the book down but then with about 15% to be read I coul
