The Life of Objects

Characters î The Life of Objects 102 In 1938 seventeen year old Beatrice an Irish Protestant lace maker finds herself at the center of a fairy tale when she is whisked away from her dreary life to join the Berlin household of Felix and Dorothea Metzenburg Art collectors and friends to the most fascinating men and women in Europe the Metzenburgs introduce Beatrice to a world in which she finds to desire than she ever imagined But Germany has launched its campaign of aggression across Europe and before long. ObliueI m not uite sure what to make of this book As always Susanna Moore gives us some wonderful prose I read several of her early books when they were first published then drifted away from her work There s something vaguely unsatisfying about it It s difficult to see the point in her plots In my opinion Objects was saved by the last third of the book prior to that it feels like a mish mash of a description of lovely things and of manners from a previous era After meandering through the early years of World War II MaeveBeatrice an Irish woman who was lured to Germany based on her lace making skills has grown up and grown weary all at the same time when war breaks out soon after she arrives The wealthy couple she s serving are barely surviving on their country estate when they flee the danger of Berlin They re not so isolated that the war and its p

Characters î The Life of Objects 102 The conflict reaches the Metzenburgs’ threshold Retreating with Beatrice to their country estate Felix and Dorothea do their best to preserve the traditions of the old world But the realities of hunger and illness as well as the even graver threats of Nazi terror the deportation and murder of Jews and the hordes of refugees fleeing the advancing Red Army begin to threaten their existence When the Metzenburgs are forced to join a growing population of men and women i. SPOILERI was so disappointed by this book I wanted to love it but the writing style felt so flat I kept waiting for events to tie together for the people to make sense for someone to step forward as a leading character None of this happened While Beatrice was the narrator I felt she just wasn t written well enough to satisfy my want for a lead role The couple with whom she works for are clumsily put together While they are aristocratic they invite Beatrice to join them at dinner but none of the other servants Their love of things yet their charity to peasants is uite confusing because overall they weren t written as necessarily good people I just found the accounts of nothing too much and the important pieces such as the starvation the rape the birth and burial of the baby was it alive or dead were the Metzenburgs really in love why didn t Maeve ever long for home

Characters î The Life of Objects 102 N hiding Beatrice increasingly attached to the family and its unlikely wartime community bears heartrending witness to the atrocities of the age and to the human capacity for strength in the face of irrevocable loss In searing physical and emotional detail The Life of Objects illuminates Beatrice’s journey from childhood to womanhood from naïveté to wisdom as a continent collapses into darkness around her It is Susanna Moore’s most powerful and haunting novel yet. I like the relationship between the title and the story it is not just the life of object it is the life that is given through objects When the story opens and the reader first meets Felix he is obsessed with his objects Clearly the impression is given that the objects themselves are important than much else including his or Dorothea s safety However as the war unfolds and Felix sells off item by item it becomes clear that the objects are a means to an end and one begins to wonder if Felix resistance to leaving Germany was not because he prizes his objects as much as it is that he can t bear being unable to help othersUnfortunately I was not crazy about the BeatriceMeave character I understood her desire to leave backwoods Ireland and the appeal of Inez and Berlin I also understood that she didn t have a relationship with her mother and so was not in a hurry to r

    PDF DOWNLOAD The Life of Objects Û Susanna Moore Having recently read HHhH I found myself thinking about the fictionalization of wartime atrocities Heydrich himself is mentioned in this novel For such a short novel it's remarkable how the entire war is represented the chapters are entitled 1938 1939 1940 1941 1942 1943 1944 1945 and a few years are only twenty pages long But the weight of the war and the transformation of the small scale society and the larger political event
