    Frances Hardinge is one of my most treasured literary finds of the past few years She is one of those writers that make me want to happily give the shout outs to their books from the rooftops and endlessly blab about them to anyone who would listen They have it all the spark, the snark, the depth, the skill and everything else that makes me smile happily when I go to reread them for the third time in a year Her books may be inexplicably classified under an umbrella of children s literature , but they have managed to keep me enthralled and in all honesty are no solely children s books than any of the classics with the sub adult characters think your Huck Finn, Holden Caulfield and Scout Finch, for instance I want to be a bad example The Lie Tree is a fascinating book It is a quite dark and exceedingly clever mystery set on the murky edge between history and fantasy in the post Darwin s Origin of the Species 19th century straight laced Victorian England, touching upon the question of women s role in society, gender roles and expectations, the selective opportunities and blatant disregard and discrimination so absurd as to seem almost fantastical and yet so painfully historically real and true, and the conflict between the new ideas of evolution and the established societal faith based paradigms which left many feeling that the ground had been yanked from under their feet I ha...

    ONE THOUSAND STARSI ve made several false starts with this review because I don t know what to write How do I describe The Lie Tree As a Victorian murder mystery As a book about lies and truths and the things that are obvious and the things that are not As a tale about filial loyalty As a revenge story As a look at the ways that women have been made invisible throughout history As a feminist triumph These are all truths But they are partial truths because this book is not one thing or another Just like all of Frances Hardinge s books before this, The Lie Tree is a complex narrative of subtle interwoven storylines that are surprising, dark, sad and incredibly beautiful In fact, I d say this is Hardinge s most beautiful book to date That sort of beauty that comes from things that are so real they feel make you like your heart has been pierced But in the nicest way possible As the story starts, Faith s family is moving to a small island, away from everything they know so that Faith s father can work at a new fossil excavation At first greeted with the fanfare an honourable guest deserves, things turn sour very soon when whispers of her father s possible fraudulent actions reach their retreat All of a sudden, no one wants to talk to the family And then, Faith s father turns up dead.Ruled an accid...

    Thanks goes to Netgalley for the ARC 1860, and all the true social horrors that the time can bring, can also be a time, in the right writer s hands, that can bring the greatest illumination upon all such subjects of a women s place in our day Frances Hardinge is truly such a brilliant writer.I can honestly say without spoiling a thing that this novel does wonderful justice for women and one s self worth I think we could all learn from setting such a bad example, and never mind all the missteps and mistakes that Faith will have to take through the novel I certainly cringed and worried and delighted in all her mistakes and triumphs, even as I grew and worried about the eventual outcome.For this felt like a truly great horror from the very beginning and never once let the tension slide, rocking hard with detail, sharp characterizations, and wonderful reveals One might call it dark fantasy, of course, or historical fiction with a magical realism bent, or even a fairy tale so rooted in reality that one could never dig deep enough to kill the tr...

    I don t read children s books very often, but the fact that this one won the overall Costa prize, backed up by a couple of positive friend reviews here, persuaded to make an exception The basic premise of a plant that thrives on human lies takes some swallowing, but if you accept that, it is a terri...

    Let me be frank Shawn As long as I can be Dean and Gus can be Sammy.Gus Why do I always have to be Sammy Shawn Fine, he s Sammy That makes you Joey Bishop Is that what you really want You want to be Joey Bishop Let s start over.Let me be honest The Lie Tree is a perfect example of why I stopped auto buying authors I loved Fly by Night my review , sought out the hardcover and added it to my library The Lie Tree shares many of the same roots but grows them in a very different way, emerging a prickling specimen, all nettle leaves and nothing I want to bring home.Faith Sunderly and her family have suddenly left England for Vane Island on the pretext of a fossil dig in some unusual caves Along with Faith is her father, the Reverend Erasmus, her mother Myrtle, her younger brother Howard, and Uncle Miles Although the reasoning seems solid as the Reverend has quite the international reputation for fossils, Faith has been sensing something disastrous lurking at the edges When they arrive at the island, they and the Reverend s specimen collection are installed in a small house In their short time, the Reverend and Myrtle manage to alienate many of the island residents, and when the truth...

    I felt super in the middle about this one On one hand, I appreciated Faith s budding feminism, her fierce determination and her defiance of authority On the other, I struggled to care much about the characters and the plot felt slow and uninteresting While I liked reading about the complex and sometimes contradictory motives of women living in a patriarchal society, I struggled to see why Faith defended her father when he acted like such a misogynist Despite my lukewarm reaction to the book, I w...
