    The Accursed eBook Ì Hardcover accursed book, The Accursed ePUBI really wish I could have observed that moment when Joyce Carol Oates was like You know maybe I'll write a Gothic with demon bridegrooms that brings together Woodrow Wilson and Upton Sinclair Something spooky that also sheds light on turn of the century issues of race and class Oh and I'll do it from the perspective of a male historian who's the son of one of the characters and thus implicated in the whole story Just you know to stretch myself a little It speaks to the nearly freakish level of Oates' talent that she could pull this novel off because it is a ridiculous feat of storytelling and craft That said this is not a novel for everyone It's nearly 700 pages long filled with period details and historical notes If you haven't read JCO before this is perhaps not the place to start No this is the work of a master who's done the conventional novel to great acclaim many times ov

    The Accursed eBook Ì Hardcover accursed book, The Accursed ePUBWhile I managed to get through it there were many parts that reminded me of the lonely person all retailpublic service people have dealt with The one that rambles on about things that have no relevance to the current situation to you or to anything

    The Accursed eBook Ì Hardcover accursed book, The Accursed ePUBI finished this book last night came to Goodreads to write my thoughts on it and had no idea where to begin what it is I wanted to say I scrolled through some reviews others had posted which varied wildly and were interesting to read but I was still unable to work out my own response so I left it hoping I would find it easier in the morning It's simple for me to say I loved this book but trying to expand beyond that is the challenging partI will admit to a slightly embarrassing oversight at the beginning of the book when I was reading the Author's Note which states 'I am a graduate of Princeton University C

    The Accursed eBook Ì Hardcover accursed book, The Accursed ePUBI’m a big fan of Joyce Carol Oates so when I discovered she had a new book out I was excited I was even happier when I found that it was another volume in the gothic family saga series she started many years ago with ‘Bellefleur’ which is one of my favori

    The Accursed eBook Ì Hardcover accursed book, The Accursed ePUB‘The Accursed” is the latest addition to Joyce Carol Oates’s boundless body of work and it’s spectacular — a coalescence of history horror and social satire that whirls around for almost 700 mesmerizing pages Oates started the novel in 1984 but set it aside to steep in its own febrile juices for three decades Now “The Accursed” arises in full bloom boasting as much craft as witchcraftThe book comes to us framed as a work of amateur history the pet project of MW van Dyck a member of one of the august old families in Princeton NJ “I have been privy to many materials unavailable to other historians” he tells us dismissing earlier scholars who have tried to make sense of the tragedies that struck Princeton in 1905 “No one is possessed of as much information as I am concerning the private

    The Accursed eBook Ì Hardcover accursed book, The Accursed ePUBThe Accursed is trippy in the best most all consuming sense of the word I read it like an obsessed maniac it's that much of a page turner That is to say once you get into the unreliable narrator's pedanticperverse voice It took me about 60 pages to orient myself in his world and after that I hated to leave the world of the book for real life The setting Princeton NJ when Woodrow Wilson was president of the college not the country is very evocative and I totally bought into all the lurid Gothic splendordecay of it all It actually made we want to go research the lives of some o

    The Accursed eBook Ì Hardcover accursed book, The Accursed ePUBPhew What a slog this was And how it pains me to give it only two stars 'it was barely okay' as I am a huge fan of the supremely talented Joyce Carol OatesNever afraid to experiment The Accursed has been touted as her take on the horror genre with Stephen King hailing it as the first postmodern Gothic novel HuhHorror novel it ain't All it is basically is a novel focusing on Princeton in the dim and distant past and how it was a microcosm of the racism and general prejudice especially towards women and children that was endemic to the fledgling United States at the timeOh and with some supernatural elements thrown into the mix Following a lynching of wrongly accused underclass representatives of course these are black Princeton's leading families are suddenly subject to weird happenings and urges These uickly escalate into violence

    The Accursed eBook Ì Hardcover accursed book, The Accursed ePUBWhat did I just readI think it's safe to say that this is NOT my cup of tea I did not get on well with this book at allI'll be honest and say that this could very well be your cup of tea I just didn't like the writing styleI couldn't grow any relationship with any of the characters and without any relationship between me the reader and the characters I found the book rather dull When you don't can't care for a character or any at all I find it very hard to engage with a bookCombine this with

    The Accursed eBook Ì Hardcover accursed book, The Accursed ePUBNo matter how great a book is I am antsy That's one of the reasons I have a hard time with longer books in particular this one because it takes many pages for very little to happen Joyce Carol Oates is somewhat intimidating to me because she has such a large body of work that I don't know where to start I started with The Accursed not intentionally but by default I love spooky stories It's obvious that Oates is a fantastic writer She created the world of Princeton NJ in the early 20th century with such vividness and weaved her gothic story into real history with such ease that I became newly curious about historical figures like Upton Sinclair Woodrow Wilson and Grover Cleveland Still the plot gets freuently bogged down by historical asides that go on for pages and pages Even once I settled in for the long ride I felt like there were too many interruptions to the momentum and that a good editor could have shaved off uite a few pages of themI will
