Read & Download Wreaking James Scudamore ß 8 Read Wreaking Summary õ 108 Three solitary characters remember their shared past in a sprawling derelict psychiatric hospital on the English coast a turbulent summer in the aftermath of the hospital. The Wreaking of the title of James Scuda s novel is a vast disused mental hospital on the south coast close to a bleakly fading seaside town After its closure Wreaking is bought by Jasper Scriven an unstable grieving single father who brings his troubled teenage daughter Cleo with him to live in the eerie isolation of empty hospital wards and endless echoing corridors But what happened at Wreaking to estrange them and what horrific accident resulted in the loss of Cleo s eye Why years later is the adult Cleo being stalked by Roland a petty criminal who works for a grotesuely seedy sinister boss living in a dankly threatening storage unit under a railway arch And what of Wreaking s former inmates and staff Mona and Carole both freuented Wreaking in the past and are now living in a rundown guest house but which was the nurse and which was the patientAs you may have guessed Wreaking is far from a barrel of laughs it is in fact one of the bleakest novels I ve read in a long time Filled with a powerful pervasive air of decay and degeneration both physical and mental it gave me a sense of profound unease That isn t to say it isn t an exceptional novel it is It s a beautifully crafted book that is made all the unsettling by the uality of Scuda s prose a well proportioned mix of the poetic and the deliberately and depressingly mundane The use of language the awkwardly off kilter characters and the ever present air of dread that hangs over the entire novel reminded me of Nicola Barker s Darkmans or Hilary Mantel s Beyond Black and those aren t comparisons I would make lightlyWreaking flits between each character s past and present piecing together the connections between them At one time or another they all inhabited Wreaking or perhaps it inhabited them Each of them is an irreparably damaged individual and Wreaking appears to be a remarkably damaging environment For all its work to cure the insane when it was a functioning psychiatric hospital once closed down Wreaking seems to breed madness the crumbling building and its overgrown grounds feeding off the mental deterioration of everyone who comes into contact with it from the deluded Jasper and the fearful lonely Cleo to awkward shambling Roland and his sadistic troublemaker of a friend Oliver The story of Jasper Cleo and Roland is gradually untangled through a non linear plot structure that at times feels like a slowly developing nightmare in which unspeakable terrors are always around the corner but nonetheless always unseen everything Scuda withholds is every bit as significant as what he revealsAll this said from an entirely subjective point of view I would be hard pushed to say I enjoyed reading Wreaking and there were times when I almost decided not to finish it I suspect however that this has a lot to do with my personal state of mind than the novel itself it deals with a number of topics I find difficult to read about It s a remarkable book however and it s hard to find fault with its incredibly skilled construction
