Críticas

"Grief isn't normally the stuff of page-turners but Myerson, in stark, simple prose - seemingly effortless, though I suspect far from it - has constructed a compelling thriller out of it... A terrific read" (John Harding Daily Mail)

"Achingly brilliant...a haunting and compelling tale of memory, grief and obsession" (Sunday Express)

"A powerful, moving study of sadness and the uncanny" (Ludovic Hunter-Tilney Financial Times)

"Will haunt you to the last page" (Scotsman)

"This is an extraordinary, peculiar, mesmerising novel - the collected wail of middle-aged female anguish is brilliantly articulated. Myerson is one the select few who can write convincingly about a passionate love affair, with all its exquisite pains and barbed pleasures" (New Statesman)

Descripción del producto

A freezing room in a student house, a sagging mattress on the floor, and two people, one nineteen, the other twenty, kissing passionately. All night.

It is to this scene that, twenty years later, Rosy, the narrator of Julie Myerson's astonishing new novel, returns obsessively. She has just lost a child in a terrible, careless accident, and Tom, her partner, has taken her to Paris to forget about things, to start again.

It has snowed in the night and, waking at dawn, Rosy decides to go for a walk. At the hotel desk there's a note for her: 'I'm waiting for you X.' And he is, sitting in the corner of a café she enters almost at random. They talk. He touches her. She turns away and when she looks again he is gone.

Was he there? Had she dreamed him? And why, when he emails her out of the blue two days later, does he write as though they haven't met for twenty years?

5.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas When it's time for a heady read... 12 de octubre de 2016
Por Karen M. Folger - Publicado en Amazon.com
Formato: Tapa blanda Compra verificada
This novel is the pure definition of evocative. I like to think of Story of You as a literary, deeply plotted, intensely real and heart rending version of Fifty Shades of Gray--and no, I haven't read Fifty Shades of Grey, so I guess you could beg to differ! This is a love story on many levels that weaves between past and present in a beautifully choreographed dance. Don't let the unexpected shifts and absence of quotation marks put you off. They are merely part of the subtlety that is the story of us all. I prefer not to write Reviews that could give anything away regarding the personal encounter you will have with the story you choose to read. Like looking at, listening to, or reading any piece of art, your interpretation comes from your experience. At least for me, any outside influence can only mar that relationship. I will, however, suggest that you read Story of You, even after you've read other reviews that may have you thinking: Not for me. This novel is on-point and will surely touch a part, or parts, of your own life in a most meaningful and thought provoking way.

5.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas A lyrical read that I couldn't put down... 4 de septiembre de 2010
Por Clare Swindlehurst - Publicado en Amazon.com
Formato: Tapa dura
Myerson's prose is almost poetic, and I found myself entranced from the very first paragraph. The story is beautifully written as Myerson weaves together memories of an encounter many years ago with the story of today.

Rosy, the central character and the voice of the novel is battling to keep her family life on track following the tragic death of her youngest daughter. When her husband takes her away to Paris she takes a walk in the snow at the crack of dawn and meets a man who was once the boy she spent the night with more than twenty years ago on that memorable night that continues to haunt her.

When she returns home she strikes up an email conversation with the man, who behaves as though they haven't seen each other for twenty years.

Myerson weaves the past and the present together in such a way that the true account of her daughter's tragic death isn't made clear until more than half way through the novel. The relationship she has with Tom, her almost-husband, is a stark contrast to the affair she strikes up with "you", the man who understands her in a way no one else ever has, and whose name the reader never learns.

I couldn't put this book down as I wanted to know more about the events of the past, and whether Rosy's lover really existed; I wondered whether he was real, a figment of her imagination, a ghost or even an hallucination.

The Story of You took my breath away, made my heart ache and made me think about the preciousness of love, relationships and the simple gestures and understandings that draw people together.

It's been almost three days since I finished reading the book and I still find myself thinking about it, which is why I've decided to award The Story of You by Julie Myerson the elusive 6 star rating at Blue Archipelago Reviews!

I am waiting for another review. Did the "affair" really happen? How did she come to love Tom? Couldn't put the book down. Read it in one go!
