    [Free E–pub] Seahorse AUTHOR Janice Pariat Another disappointing ending I can't talk about the book without ruining the ending so I'll just say you might as well read the first five pages and then the last five pages and you'll get the whole story Most frustrating

Read Seahorse 107 Delhi’s burgeoning art world Then comes an invitation to speak to artists in London and the past is suddenly resurrected As London's cosmopolitan art scene envelops Nem he is haunted by the possibilities of a life with Nicholas But Nicholas eludes Nem avoiding a reunion with his old student but leaving clues that lead to someone else Myra a woman Nem thought was Nicholas's s. This book is a vision to behold I m so glad I ordered the hardcover Seahorse is a re telling of the myth of Poseidon and Pelops For the er Greek Myth noobs Pelops was the son of Tantalus the chap who served him as a stew to the Gods In the myth the Gods wise up once Demeter ends up eating his shoulder and reassemble him Tantalus gets sentenced to Tartarus and Poseidon takes Pelops under his wing Amongst other things he taught him how to drive the divine chariot When Zeus discovers this he gets so annoyed at Tantalus that he throws Pelops off Olympus You do not need to know this to read the book Or like itI first heard of Seahorse at the 2015 Lit for Life fest organized by the Hindu Janice Pariat read from her book she was one of three authors scheduled for that session I still remember the weak sunshine and the lazy crowd I ll admit to being captivated by This Place by Amitabha Bagchi rather than Seahorse but its origins stuck with me A retelling of a Greek myth Sign me up for that oneI still haven t gotten around to reading This Place even though I bought it a few months later but I ordered Seahorse because I hoped Janice Pariat would show up again this LFL and I could meet her if I liked it I liked the book Unfortunately Janice Pariat won t be at LFL C est la vie Seahorse is a peculiar book in fact it s best described by a passage in the book itself Time doesn t hang on a wall It doesn t tick by on a wrist It s infinitely secretive and intimate Time contrary to all notions does not flow It s not beautifully fluid a murmuring river passing under a bridge In our heads it hastens and halts and stumblesThe narrative isn t very fluid it hastens and halts and stumbles and jars It reminds you that it s well informed and well read as it artlessly tosses out references Auden Cantopop kintsukuroi Stravinsky Nem reads a review of a photography exhibition that was inspired by a review of a Rembrandt It aims to impress and impress it does not with its knowledge of art and literature and the world but with its sensuality and elegance It s a strange melancholic book and I don t know if it s because I felt miserable when I read it but it weighed me down all the way to the end Even as Nem shook himself free I felt like I was sinking back into the oozeI m Nem not thirty two year old young wise stupid Nem but the Nem in college uncertain confused a shade of person dying for a way to light up Everyone around him is filled with purpose one way or another but Nem drifts and adapts He absorbs traits and sponges up interests I rather enjoyed drifting through his memories and dwelling on his little Julian Barnes nuggets Plus seeing as I ve never been to London I rather enjoyed the descriptions though I dare say other people might have been bored with themAnd now for the spoilersview spoilerI m not sure if Wikipedia got it wrong but nowhere in the myth of Poseidon and Pelops do they mention that Poseidon is a self righteous prick who tries to manage Pelops life even though he s a grown man now I thought that Nicholas was most like Poseidon when he called Nem his blank slate the need to be worshipped makes them alike than not But the righteousness with which he arranged Myra and Nem s meeting well looking past that is difficult I don t think I m meant to After all we don t worship the gods because we love them We worship them because we fear them and recognize all too well their shortcomings and faults And Nem I think is closer to worship rather than love hide spoiler

Read Seahorse 107 Nem was not like his college classmates Instead of crowding around a TV set Nem opted for lonely walks where he could indulge his passion for photography until the night he saw Nicholas a young professor from London with another male student The affair is passionate and brief When Nicholas returns to London Nem must move on He graduates and soon finds success as a critic in New. So damn sad and beautiful Reminds me of Call Me By Your Name and The Bell Jar Her writing is mesmerizing It s so nostalgic picturesue appealing and calmingI find the writing poignant heavily light and dreamily realistic I just love how the characters developed I really love the chemistry between them and I love how uirky realistic and charming they are inspite of their flaws and imperfectionsThe characters are unpredictable as tomorrowsThe timeline keeps fleeting and changed according to the memories brought up and it keeps up with the narration well This isn t a book for everyone It s rather slow at times which you would want to fast forward and at times too engrossing that you would want to read some pages repeatedly because they hold precious moments that you wouldn t want to escape your memories There s a suspense throughout the narration especially regarding two characters one dead and the other missing I won t guarantee you would like all these characters but they seem real and humaneThe plot deals with relationships coming of age sexuality and homophobia death and griefActually the whole book didn t need a wholesome plot because it felt like it was happening as I was reading it And yes it gave me the feeling of unpredictability like days after the day It felt like I was living with the characters side by side while I am living my everyday life I fell in love with their normal nothingness in uest of something precious living life as it is No words can describe how I felt regarding the writing the story the characters and the ending put together Her books are so damn uniueI feel if you like books by Haruki Murakami and Sally Rooney like I do you will like this one

Read Seahorse 107 Ister Brought together by their love for Nicholas Nem and Myra embark on a surprising friendshipJanice Pariat explores the concept of emotional memory with the inuisitive mind of a scientist and the prowess of a poet Rich immersive prose drives a story with international scope one that seeks answers to the age old mystery of what binds us to others and how we can ever let them. 3755starsis it strange that I want to compare this to Exit West Maybe it s because I read the two books very close together but this book really does remind me of it but much better doneI m not gonna lie this book is confusing It s one of those books that if you don t really every single word you re gonna miss something and while some people say skim reading is bad I m an expert skim reader or really I m not sure if what I do is skim reading I just kind of read chunks of words all at the same time rather than just one after another Does that make sense Well either way this book I couldn t read normally I had to actually pay attention to each and every word or I was flipping back pages to figure out what the heck was happeningBut I really enjoyed this book Similar to Exit West this story is about two relatively young people coming together to help each other through mutually difficult times because they understand each other than others doThe writing is pretty To others people would probably find it beautiful but to me I HATE flowery writing The author sugar coats things with so many layers I sometimes had to read several pages just to figure out what the hell they were talking about cause the author and the characters would never just come straight up and SAY it ie what happened to Nem s friend Lenny Also this book takes place around 2010ish and they can t just say gay or bisexual like come onBut I did end up enjoying this The middle part was very slow and honestly was the longest but could have been put into just a handful of pages but the first and last parts were GREAT I really REALLY enjoyed them once I figured out what the hell was going on lol The characters are great and very very real and fleshed out with real worries and real stories to themOverall I enjoyed this was it perfect no But I did enjoy my time reading it and would suggest it to people who like slower basically plotless books that explore characters and grief rather than have a bunch of really exciting things happening
