    ePUB Kirsten Tranter ì The Legacy Epub ↠ ì legacy ebok, The Legacy ePUB‘The Legacy’a debutby Australian author Kirsten Tranter was first published 10 years ago This is my first time reading her The experience is hard to describe Many readers won’t have the patience for itbut for those who do they risk becoming totally enslaved to it as I did I admit being ‘spent’ I don’t think I’ll stop thinking about it for weeks upon weeks This story is very alive and present in my head It’s a long noveland it feels long It’s a literary suspense thriller that is so unconventional ‘psychological thriller’ isn’t uite the right description It’s epic character driven dramatic ordinary and extraordinary It’s about friendships complications through the roof contemporary life privileged upperclass lives middle class lives university students book discussions George Eliot TS Eliot Henry James etc art conversations being young being old being sick

    ePUB Kirsten Tranter ì The Legacy Epub ↠ ì legacy ebok, The Legacy ePUBPandemic rereads #7The narrator of The Legacy Julia lives a comfortable ordinary middle class life until she forms a friendship with wealthy Ralph and his beautiful half cousin Ingrid She's swept into their decadent world and falls in love with Ralph who in turn is in love with Ingrid despite being distantly related to her – and despite the fact that he generally prefers men Still the trio manage to maintain a near idyllic friendship until Ingrid meets and uickly marries a much older American art collector Gil Grey and moves to New York A few years later Ingrid vanishes on 11 September 2001 and is naturally assumed to be one of the many victims of the terrorist attacks Ralph believes there is to the story and dispatches Juli

    ePUB Kirsten Tranter ì The Legacy Epub ↠ ì legacy ebok, The Legacy ePUBMay contain spoilers May rambleThis is a difficult book to review And I'm going to start by saying that I think the reason I initially gave The Legacy four stars instead of five is to do with the main character Julia than the writing I love the writing and the structure and the setting the setting and the ending the endingJulia isn't so much a character as a human Which is what we want in writing right? And by the end of the book I really loved her But most of the time I was thinking mostly during the first half 'Bloody hell J

    ePUB Kirsten Tranter ì The Legacy Epub ↠ ì legacy ebok, The Legacy ePUBI wasn't sure what I thought of this book and then I read Peter Craven's review in 'The Monthly' where he calls it a crypto mystery novel rather haphazardly linked to an allusive literary novel and I admit now I know what I thought of this book Initially I was kinda confused because I'd gone into the book thinking it was a mystery a conclusion I'd built from the back cover blurb the apparent subtitle on the front What has happened to Ingrid? But it's not a mystery Instead I was taken by surprise by how sombre it is and by the whole Henry James soberness I actually wanted to write that as 'sombriety' though I do applaud Tranter for fixing the depressing ending of PORTRAIT OF A LADY thank you Occasionally it reminded me of Donna Tartt's marvellous THE SECRET HISTORY in its undergradpostgrad setting mood But of course at other times it manages to be entirely its own book a per

    ePUB Kirsten Tranter ì The Legacy Epub ↠ ì legacy ebok, The Legacy ePUBThe Legacy by Kirsten Tranter was longlisted for the 2011 Miles Franklin It’s an accomplished debut novel in many ways but it failed to engage me in a sustained way I read about 50 pages of it put it aside and forgot about it until I realised it would soon be due back at the library And then I had to start again because I couldn’t remember what it was about Like Henry James’ A Portrait of a Lady the novel from which the plot is derived it’s of a meditation than a page turner whatever the publisher’s blurb might imply There is a mystery but the novel takes its own good time to reveal even that Ingrid’s disappearance is enigmatic Tranter takes a long time to set its scenes playing out sparse clues with dialogue and the narrator’s introspection There’s a lot about interior settings the timbre of voices the clothes people wear their posture and stan

    ePUB Kirsten Tranter ì The Legacy Epub ↠ ì legacy ebok, The Legacy ePUBI liked this book despite its flaws I liked the main character and I liked the story I was very curious about the ending and was mostly satisfied with it I agree with others who wrote about feeling frustrated why did Julia take months to ask uestions that were so obvious to the reader? It seemed to be a plot device to add suspense but just ended up being frustrating to read Some of the writing was beautiful but it often felt the author was trying too hard to be intense and deep The descriptive language just got annoying after a while But as a whole the book was enjoyable and I liked the dua

    ePUB Kirsten Tranter ì The Legacy Epub ↠ ì legacy ebok, The Legacy ePUBYou remember where you were when you heard of them – events so momentous you just know the world would never be the same again For the Kennedy assassination I was asleep woken by a teary mother with the sad news For the death of Elvis on my birthday I might add I was enjoying a celebratory sudsy bath but that soon changed when the radio told me of his untimely passing With Whitlam's dismissal I had just come off class for the morning break when a teaching colleague heading out to p

    ePUB Kirsten Tranter ì The Legacy Epub ↠ ì legacy ebok, The Legacy ePUBI didn't read all of this but enough to conclude that it's not for me I found the writing a bit on the dull side and the characters profoundly uninteresting I had great intentions of finishing it in time for book club but after reading the first 30 to 50 pages I found myself choosing to do just about anything other than read this book I made a strong push the day before and s

    ePUB Kirsten Tranter ì The Legacy Epub ↠ ì legacy ebok, The Legacy ePUBThis is a long book – 438 pages but I didn’t find that it dragged The first 23 of the book reminded me of an Antipodean Brideshead Revisited or Great Gatsby with the outsider narrator watching wealthy people living out their greed and insecurity There is an artificiality and s
