But spread over years -- first chapter is , last is s. Each chapter has a different narrative device: I couldn't read one chapter because it was written in deep dialect and utterly undecipherable and I like Faulkner. Past characters appear in local myth, as ghosts, etc. Brilliant idea, interweaving snapshots of the same community over time, with characters from succeeding generations popping up every once in a while. Absolutely humanizes history, political and social changes over time. I've recommended it to everyone I know. I did not enjoy this book as much as I expected to, though I cannot fault the quality of the writing.

The chapters are made up of vignettes told in the first person by a succession of Ulverton residents, each chapter moving forward in time. Each appears to be written to simulate how they spoke and wrote at that time. A few of the stories I liked a lot, some were just okay, and some seemed a bit too mundane or difficult to wade through due to the vernacular used.

I am sure it is all well researched and I would certainly encourage anyone who is intrigued by the premise or who enjoys British social history to wade into it and give it a try. You may well enjoy it much more than I did. One person found this helpful.

Did Jeremy Thorpe have a gay lover thrown to his death from a yacht?

Readers of "Cloud Atlas" by David Mitchell or even the far less known debut novel by the well-known Alan Moore "A Voice of the Fire" may admire this predecessor in the same mode of storytelling I reviewed both. Over time, voices and registers shift as a locale takes in generations who convey overlapping themes, concerns, mysteries, items, and predecessors. Thorpe even fits himself into the final chapter from This circles back neatly to the start, where in a soldier from Cromwell's depredations in Ireland returns to Ulverton, a vaguely placed hamlet in the southwest of England think of Hardy's Wessex.

That takes place in an efficient style nearly our own, but most chapters after will hearken to the tone and vocabulary of the period. Similar to Moore, this will challenge the reader, as it forces you into dialect and regionalisms. Facts tying each section to others flit across the page, but rarely and briefly.

Considerable concentration is needed, perhaps too much in one part which as with other chapters seems to go on too long for the detail and the mood necessary to place the reader within the situation, and some of this moves slowly--if fittingly so for a rural account, after all.

A religious revelation bursts in, as an Anglican clergyman must tell of a Quaker's conversion in grotesquely twisted circumstances. Thorpe introduces here an effect I like and which he uses later, hesitation by a narrator: In epistolary style, one side of an exchange between a lady of the estate and her departed lover happens in Pay attention already to items that are repeating in later chapters.

It's a barely literate tailor's transcription of a phonetic rendering of dialect and while compelling--a mother's plea for her son sentenced for stealing a hat to Newgate prison in London--it demands very close attention, but it rewards the same. This can be said of the entire novel. Few passages leap out, but the accumulative effect pleases in incremental, subtle, and embedded fashion. I felt the part an amusing if moral shaggy-dog story--and a long one set in a tavern suitably over a long if one-sided conversation-- but it does in retrospect show how the cutting down of so much of England's woodlands altered the landscape and furnished its houses in a time of fuel and expansion.

In a backlash against mechanization by farmers sets laborers to revolt, as taken down by a legal functionary, as he intersperses the testimony of those arrested and facing execution or transportation to Van Diemen's Land with his appeals to his beloved. Thorpe plays off the concerns of the law and gentry skillfully, as they attend to agrarian matters as they must, but often in offhand fashion compared to their domestic concerns, as their own jobs interfere with their own pleasures, as with us all.

A female photographer's commentary on the plates she takes around Ulverton as well as in Egypt captures Thorpe's ability to channel his chosen styles well--here a George Eliot phrasing comes across very smoothly. Light in the Middle East hits her differently: A short part, it felt much longer. Still, these set up if laboriously the impacts of the last century. Told through diaries, sermons, letters, drunken pub conversations and filmscripts this is a masterful novel that reconstructs the unrecorded history of England.

Each episode immerges the reader in the same place, a village in southeast England, at different moments of its history. The various narratives, starting in and ending in , are recounted by the protagonists' voices. Some episodes are linked although each stands on its own rather like a short story. The varied and contrasting voices combine to create a portrait of a village over time. Beautifully crafted, the different registers are perfectly calibrated. Karl Ove Knausgaard's favorite English novel, which is why I bought it.
