I won this book and as such I feel obligated to review it I need to first clarify that as I am not Canadian and incredibly unfamiliar with Canadian military and Newfoundland I m sure there were many things I simply culturally couldn t grasp or picture in my mind However I think I could have overcome all of that if the author could have made me care about a single character or relationship in the book Nothing feels real things are vague there are no uotation marks sometimes this is OK but this book has too many characters and Winter just could not pull it off and I was lost as to whether a character was remembering something or experiencing it first handThe whole premise of the book is that the main character Henry is so heartbroken about his girlfriend Nora breaking up with him that he trucks off to Afghanistan with his friends for civilian work for a year I know NOTHING about Nora what she looks like why he loved her why he is so devastated about their break up It s a blank slateHenry has friends but apparently no family He has no relatives siblings cousins I believe the book mentions his parents once but where they are or what happened to them is completely missing The cover of the ARC says How do you come home from war if you leave your best friend far behind Just reading that floors me because when that particular character DID DIE I was shocked because I never got the sense that they were best friends NOTHING They were co workers who had maybe gone to trade school together But best friendsI will say Winter s writing was elevated in Part II although I still don t get why there needed to be a Part II as there was no Part III and no dramatic changes between the first two parts The best writing in the book comes from the first chapter in Part II The difference in that chapter alone was so stark it made me think that there were multiple editors for this edition andor that that there was a big time difference for the author personally as to when he wrote each part I cannot tell you how strongly I object to anyone comparing this to Tim O Brien which my ARC boldly proclaims If you want to read about war and what it s like to lose your best friends and how you come home from that then you read Tim O Brien

CANADA READS 2016 FINALISTMan what an absolute drag of a read Minister Without Portfolio s two parts could be easily summarized in two uick sentences Part 1 Henry gets dumped goes to Afghanistan is traumatized goes out West to work but has to come back to Newfoundland Part 2 Henry s got a house to build a relationship to sort out and has to meet the b ys from around the bay After the uick clip of the first 30 pages Minister Without Portfolio becomes a decompressed read that was an absolute slog fest for me to get throughMy issue isn t with Winter s sparse style but rather with the excruciating pace of the novel After beginning with an opening that moves uickly from place to place and culminates in the death of one of his friends Henry begins a long road to recovery and personal betterment The plot sounded appealing and I was hoping to gain insight into the plight of labourers who have to travel away for work but instead found an extremely dull storyline that never gripped me Henry s evolution by the end of the novel is believable it s just that I was never invested in any of the characters enough to care about where they ended up It s also not that I couldn t see what Winter was trying to do with the novel it just failed to provoke any personal response Also full disclosure I currently live in Newfoundland and have for some time The brief moments of recognition of places I knew or descriptions of the barren landscape of The Rock were some of the sections I found most interesting Now I know dialogue is tough to nail but I found the characters speech in Minister Without Portfolio to sound too fake to believe Not that they weren t believably from Newfoundland no the slang and accents were well preserved Instead I found myself rolling my eyes when characters would speak in alternating platitudes to each other in order to sort out their lives I finished this book the day following its ejection from this year s Canada Reads competition With the sheer amount of stylistic variation between all of this year s selections it comes as no personal surprise that the most understated novel of the bunch was the first to be eliminated Some people may connect with the slow pace and meandering plot line of Minister Without Portfolio but it definitely doesn t surprise me that many readers have failed to engage with the story in a meaningful way The characters can be tough to like the plot doesn t really go anywhere interesting and it was a real chore for me to get through this one I m happy to have this one out of the way and move on from what I found to be an extremely weak year for Canada Reads
