All the Days And Nights
All the Days And Nights
Price: £3.99

5.0 out of 5 stars All the days and nights, 17 Oct. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is ultimately a sad tale of an artist's quest for finding the meaning in her muse. It is controlling, the 2nd person narrative means you only hear one side of the story. It's selfish, the artist is only focused on her art, capturing that perfect moment on canvas. It's selfish, because the muse has left her to find himself on canvas, just as she needs him most.

It's remorseful too, only now at the end of the artist's life does she think about the impact she has had on her muse, her husband. It's a beautiful read, even better when you read it aloud, the power of the 2nd person comes into its own when you read it aloud.

I wonder if this is the artists lament to their muse, a final understanding of how their lives have controlled each other.

Wonderful and emotional.

The whole idea for the book is inspired, I shared the question 'what would you do' with friends and everyone had a different opinion, it started a conversation. I think for me that is the best thing about the book, it gets people talking about these issues. The story is told well giving different view points throughout the book, Vic's research must have been exhausting. Well done to Vic, who has approached this subject with a great attitude and allowed the reader to make up their own minds.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really really really good, 3 Dec. 2012
This review is from: Black Art (Paperback)
This is a great book. It heart it is a detective novel, but it brings so much more to the reader. A detective novel with a stylish film noir centre, with a sexy by flawed beauty and a detective a who perhaps is more than just meets the eye. The story is a tale of bravery and endeavour with some surprising scenes turning up more than you bargained for. With wonderful references to the Channel Islands this story puts the wars heroines at the centre and celebrates the secrets you can find once you delve into your families past. I really enjoyed it and our hero is a keeper and I hope to be reading more Arty Shaw tales soon.

5.0 out of 5 stars A unique friendship, 19 Mar. 2004
The opening chapter sets the scene; this book is sharp, intelligent and very funny. Govinden manages to encapsulate DJ and Amy's inner most thoughts, their quirks & neuroses and their amazing highs - more than that though, you actually end up caring about their unique relationship.
The one liners throughout this book will have you smirking and laughing out loud, I really enjoyed reading this and I think that you will too - don't let your grandma near it though - unless she is open minded!
