I will have a job convincing the police that I am innocent but one thing is indisputable If Lily had never met me she would be alive now It would seem that death follows Lucy Fly around For a young woman she has had too many people she knows meet an untimely demise She is aptly named because when people talk to her about rooting down in a place she will correct them and say people don t have rootsthey have legs She grew up in the Yorkshire area of England and as soon as she possibly can she flees to Japan because it is someplace completely different from her pudding and ginger beer upbringing She loves her simple life She has a job as a translator that gives her intriguing word puzzles to unravel She has a few friends really the right number and she has a boyfriend who is strange and wonderful Everything is going fine until she meets Lily Bridges A taste of home a Yorkshire girl who talks incessantly about the very place that Lucy wants to forget She is asked by a friend to help her find a place and settle in Lucy isn t the right person for this type of favor She is self sufficient and doesn t really like the lack of that in others Still she decides to help Teiji is a photographer a photographer who never sells his pictures He has file folders brimming with wonderful evocative photographs but they are his and not for anyone else He likes the odd intensity of Lucy s eyes They meet because he finds her on the street in the lens of his cameraLucy hasn t introduced Teiji to any of her friends She is the golem and he isprecious She doesn t want to share him because he ishers and hers alone He works in a noodle shop and sometimes she likes to watch him without him knowing she is there She is obsessively protective of him because to lose him is something she doesn t even want to contemplate There is a murder and Lucy is the perfect suspect The novel centers around the police and also the reader trying to sort out what is true what is partially true and what is absolute delusion The truth is sometimes a chimera The writing moves between first person and third person which has been confusing to some readers but I didn t experience that problem It makes perfect sense to me as I start to discover that Lucy is experiencing some disassociation from her life She is an unreliable narrator and some things she tells us are easier for her to share with some distancing of the narrative As the plot unfolds we have to weigh everything that has been revealed to us and determine if we believe what happened really happened I also watched the movie version of this novel from 2019 starring Alicia Vikander They made some revisions to the plot including transforming Lucy from being English to Swedish This might be because Vikander is originally from Sweden and her particular accented Japanese would make sense There is one death that was changed for the movie and I m so glad they made that modification It added a compelling aspect to the subplot that was better than the book The biggest alteration in the movie was to the ending I MUCH preferred the ending in the book and many movie watchers found the ending of the movie to be one of the weaknesses My recommendation for those who are interested in this story is that they should read the book first and then watch the movie They will still enjoy watching the book come to life on the big screen but they will certainly be shorting themselves by not reading the book first The dust jacket blurb compares this book to The Wasp Factory and The Sculptress I haven t read the Minette Walters book but I have read the Iain Banks book and even though it is considered a classic by some and a piece of filth by others it is in my mind not the best comparison I think The Earthuake Bird has a broader appeal to a larger audience I ended up really liking Lucy Her eccentricities are ones that I have sympathy with Her obsessions her desire for privacy her inadeuacies at interacting with people her fears of public exposure her desire for intimacy are all things that I think most introverted readers will identify with If you wish to see of my most recent book and movie reviews visit also have a Facebook blogger page at and an Instagram account No hay as felices Verónica Rosenthal #3 unhappy life in Yorkshire but as Lily insinuates herself into Lucy's life Lucy finds that she has gained a friend but lost her sometime lover Teiji I had been in possession of a lover and a friend Now I had neither They had stolen th.

FREE DOWNLOAD The Earthuake Bird î PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Rson she must convince is herself The defendant must decide how to plead And here is my plea Not guilty but not not guilty I of all people should not be too hasty to judge As she probes ever deeper into the enigmatic mind of Lucy Fly Susanna Jones creates a brilliantly rendered drama of psychological suspense in which the ghostly vestiges of guilt the thin line between love and obsession and the seeming clarity of language combine to cloud the judgment of both character and reader ali. I would give this book 25 stars if I could It wasn t than okay but it had some interesting bitsFirst I felt the title was forced on the book The writer mentioned the possibility of a bird that might be singing during earthuakes and who may not even exist like twice throughout the whole book I didn t feel it was relevant unless it s a sign that the narrator was mad in which case it was unnecessary Lucy had bigger issues than possibly hearing a nonexistent birdSpeaking of Lucy I absolutely hated that Jones made her keep switching between the first and the third person during her narration There was no pattern for the choices it was simply annoyingThat being said the story was interesting Not much happens in real time the book is mostly made up of flashbacks but Lucy s point of view is interesting I liked her perception of everything she kept putting everything people cities countries etc in boxes of clich s so she either loved them or hated them I liked her insecurities kudos for Jones for not making me roll my eyes at those and I enjoyed her mild obsessivenessThe ending was weird for me I would have preferred a different oneAll in all this is a different kind of story and it s uite short It will keep you interested albeit not completely engaged It was probably meant to be this way
