Una lástima. ( )
  essuniz | Jan 2, 2021 |
I loved this for its writing. The author knows how to create pauses and space with short punctuated sentences without overdoing them. The detail is there but only what needs to be. Concise without being sparse, vivid without being cramped. It's a fine balance, but it's there.
The narrative voice is similar to The Book Thief, but more mature -- I think that's because both the narrator and the author are more mature than with The Book Thief. It's good to read a book that holds the author's voice but also shows growth. Death is a character in this book, too, but it's a cameo role, not a starring role. (Aside: what happened in the author's life to give him such a tangible persona to death? I've not read such vivid personification for death elsewhere.)
I connected with all the characters in this book--the five brothers, the Murderer (what a great technique in setting up suspense and interest in the opening chapters!), and all the other people in their lives.
I read an interview with the author many months before I read the book, and I'm sure it was there that I was told that, while it is Clay's story we read, the narrator is Matthew so the reader needs to consider that layering: do we trust Matthew? he puts in his own story and perspective throughout Clay's story. Much of the retelling was retold to Clay first, so what has been altered or filled in through the iterations? That puts an interesting layer on the story.
This is not the Book Thief. This is its own story, and stands on its own two legs without the Thief's coattails. While the protagonists are teens, this is not a teen book (though my library stuck a "Teen" sticker on the spine and I've taken issue with them for that). It's not inappropriate for teens nor inaccessible to them, but I believe the audience is adult. It's more than just a coming-of-age story and shouldn't be pigeon-holed into that category.
Read it. It's great. ( )

Oh dear. I’d been looking forward to this one but I’ve given up after less than 30 pages as I don’t have a clue what’s going on. And I don’t care. This writing style really irritated me and as 2019 is going to be my “Year of reading only what I want to”, it appears I’ve started early. ( )

The story follows 2 timelines, one following the main characters parents growing, eventually meeting, falling in love, and having children. The latter follows the main character himself building a bridge. This truely is a vibriant complex story about family love, greif, and determination. Also theres a sassy donkey called Achillies for good measure.

Only slightly jaring note is it's set in australia which pulls me out of the story freqently as I live in the northern hemisphere, and thus find the phrase "As the summer reaches it's hottest in January" confusing for a moment before remembering its set in the southern hemisphere. ( )

Astonishing. Don't know how many times I cried reading this. So beautifully written. ( )

Delayed gratification, in fact, is quite typical of Bridge of Clay, which on occasion falls into place in spectacular style and effect, bringing Zusak’s masterly skill for characterisation to the fore. Sometimes tedious, at other times masterful, this isn’t a novel destined for the success that met The Book Thief, though, if you have the patience, it’s worth sticking around for.

But if The Book Thief was a novel that allowed Death to steal the show, its slightly chaotic, overlong, though brilliantly illuminated follow-up is affirmatively full of life.

There’s much to love about this capacious novel, but there’s also so much. In addition to its obvious symbolic weight, the story feels freighted with those two decades of rewriting and revising.

In den beginne waren er een moordenaar, een muilezel en een jongen, maar dit is niet het begin, het is ervoor en ik ben er, en ik ben Matthew, en hier ben ik, in de keuken, in de nacht - de oude riviermonding van licht - en ik tik en ik tik.
