Free read Stay Author Nicola Griffith Review ´ PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free ´ Nicola Griffith Nicola Griffith ´ 2 Summary A hero who combines the tortured complexity with moral authority In the aftermath of her lover's murder the last thing a grieving Aud wants is another case Against her better judgment she agrees to track down an old friend's runaway fiancée and finds herse. 45 stars I read the majority of this book in one sitting because any time I put it down to eat or something I felt inexorably pulled like a magnet to dive back inI love how the author took the pronunciation of Aud s name to a whole new level and made it a legit meaningful recurring theme rather than just inserting a one time this is how you pronounce it exampleThe character growth throughout the book not just with Aud but with the people around her is extraordinary The motif of Aud growing from larva into imago is beautifully painfully laboriously executed as she works through her grief breaks out of her protective armor and comes to an understanding with the world and people around herGriffith is in a league of her own Also her descriptions of nature are so exuisite I have the strongest desire to run off into a forest and never be seen again

I d read Nicola Griffith s previous book featuring the same protagonist Aud Torvingen about seven years ago and couldn t recall much in terms of plot or mood as I began to read this oneThat is until a scene of climactic violence by ways of superhuman ferocity courtesy of the protagonist suddenly erupted about halfway into the book Things began to fall into place and I remembered what I d liked and what left me feeling ambivalent about The Blue Place Aud is a noir superheroine and I m not too keen on superheroes Fortunately her ambiguous conflicting yes her noir ualities serve as sufficient reconciliation to sustain my interestEven though superheroes bore me I still enjoy characters that take charge in an intuitive self assured manner Aud Torvingen is full of self defeating flaws and compulsive deficits but she s probably the protagonist least likely to allow herself to get side tracked by self doubt when there are things at stake And that may be the uality I relished most about both books at their core there are journeys of a guarantor for impulse movement and momentum She is a beast an avenging angel a force of natureshe is personified miraculous entropy reversing fateNicola Griffith writes unselfconscious lesbian fiction All her novels and I believe to have read all of them excluding her most recent Aud Torvingen opus Always published earlier this year feature female ueer protagonists None of them are preoccupied or stifled by worlds that are prejudiced against their sexual orientation whether that is a result of inexplicably tolerant worlds or protagonists that are somehow not affected by such prejudice is never entirely clear That earns her a predictable share of criticism from folks that would rather read about the struggles victories and defeats arising from ueerness I however am glad that Griffith doesn t heed those calls to change her game to sophisticate lesbian fantasy literature euivalents of Chick tracts and I mean Chick as in Jack Chick not as in chicks
