    eBook Jan Carson · eBook The Fire Starters PDF/EPUB â The Fire Epub / · stroyki.pro fire free, starters kindle, The Fire book, The Fire Starters ePUBNorthern Irish writer Jan Carson spins a offbeat and beguiling tale set in a East Belfast with its history of sectarianism where the ghosts and DNA of its past conflicts infiltrates the present Social realism is blended with the colour and magic of the fantastical in the summer of the tall fires incendiary sparks that grow threatening to consume a Belfa

    eBook Jan Carson · eBook The Fire Starters PDF/EPUB â The Fire Epub / · stroyki.pro fire free, starters kindle, The Fire book, The Fire Starters ePUBFor whatever reason I never tire of reading about the Troubles but The Fire Starters is not your average 'Troubles book' Set in modern day East Belfast Jan Carson imagines a series of fires that break out throughout the city initiated by an enigmatic figure referred to as the Fire Starter who revels in the blood lust that his havoc causes Amidst this violence we have two fathers Sammy Agnew an old man and former paramilitary and Jonathan Murray a socially awkward new father both of whom fear their own children as Sammy begins to suspect that his son is the cause of the Tall Fires and Jonathan begins to suspect that his newborn daughter is a SirenThis is a singular inventive tragic and wildly funny book about the legacy of violence and the lasting scars it leaves on a community The novel's central conceit is reminiscent of Milkman and of other uintessential Northern Irish lit that terror begins at home that trust cannot automatically be extended to one's own

    eBook Jan Carson · eBook The Fire Starters PDF/EPUB â The Fire Epub / · stroyki.pro fire free, starters kindle, The Fire book, The Fire Starters ePUBJan Carson’s The Fire Starters examines fatherhood in a really interesting way The novel follows two separate narrative strands – both set in East Belfast but one is a realistic look at criminal elements and the other is a fantastical tale involving children with supernatural abilities These two stories occasionally connect only to glance off each other like billiard balls remaining mostly self contained It’s a very odd juxtaposition but one which surprisingly works wellEach story follows a father who fears his child believing them to be powerful malevolent and destructive In one Sammy believes his twenty something son is the anonymous Fire Starter a rogue individual who has attracted a large online following and is inciting them to commit a series of devastating arsons known as the Tall Fires throughout the city In the other single

    eBook Jan Carson · eBook The Fire Starters PDF/EPUB â The Fire Epub / · stroyki.pro fire free, starters kindle, The Fire book, The Fire Starters ePUBI received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review This book given the very recent events in Derry feels very of its time It highlights a Northern Ireland plagued by sectarian divisions mixing cultural parental issues with a magical and odd perspective to create a story that feels very uniue yet strangely familiar At the heart this is story of fathers and children How we raise them how we teach them about the world around us and what it means to have a child who is ‘different’ The main characters are Sammy and Jonathan Sammy has an adult son and a history steeped in the Troubles He’s constantly trying to hide the anger that sits within himself and at the same time worries that his son may have inherited that anger Jonathan is a single parent to a newborn baby girl incredibly standoffish emotionally awkward and condescending to his patients as their GP One of his patients is Sammy As the story unfolds we see how the lives of these two men intertwine

    eBook Jan Carson · eBook The Fire Starters PDF/EPUB â The Fire Epub / · stroyki.pro fire free, starters kindle, The Fire book, The Fire Starters ePUBEvery year Belfast gets set alightSeriously just google Belfast and Bonfires and you will see unbelievably high pyres just ready to be lit every year on 12 JulyIt’s within this premeditated destructiveness that the story starts And the writing was utterly fantastic in placesI loved that the book focused on the struggles of fatherhood the burdens and doubts fathers face silently with no outlet other than their own racing thoughtsFrom Dr Jonathan Murry whose new baby daughter was conceived with an otherworldly woman one who destroys people with her siren song He will go to great lengths to prevent his daughter from following in her mother’s footstepsTo Sammy Agnew who still carries the guilt of his violent past and recognises this penchant for violence in his oldest son How

    eBook Jan Carson · eBook The Fire Starters PDF/EPUB â The Fire Epub / · stroyki.pro fire free, starters kindle, The Fire book, The Fire Starters ePUB35 starsJen Carson is an exceptional writer The Fire Starters has some of the most vivid immersive descriptions of a city and its ethos that I've read in a long time In the hands of Jan Carson East Belfast becomes a city that is at once recognizable and uniue one that somehow feels both familiar in its everyday mundanities and yet utterly distinct in its particular uirks All of this is to say Carson renders the setting of her novel with a masterful balance between the sprawling and the specific And yet this is no portrait of a uaint inert city East Belfast and by extension the people in it is subject to tensions that threaten to uite literally boil over The characters of the The Fire Starters find themselves embroiled in circumstances th

    eBook Jan Carson · eBook The Fire Starters PDF/EPUB â The Fire Epub / · stroyki.pro fire free, starters kindle, The Fire book, The Fire Starters ePUBIn brief This is an odd book It's well written but it is somewhat off the wall Aspects I simply loved aspects were strange aspects didn't work for meIn fullThis is set in a Belfast that seems uite recognisable with its sectarian divisions as well as cultural ones However the book does stray from anything I would associate with normality fairly uickly The first chapter left me a little puzzled and it was a while before I could get into the story It is the Summer of the Tall Fires in Belfast and Sammy is concerned about his children We then meet Jonathan actually Dr Jonathan Murray a GP and Sophie his daughter and the strangeness of the book begins to develop It is often dark and down to earth and at times poetic as it follows in the main these two threads that inevitably come togetherOther characters do flit among the pages a little oddly initially However Jonathan and Sammy are the main focus of this book

    eBook Jan Carson · eBook The Fire Starters PDF/EPUB â The Fire Epub / · stroyki.pro fire free, starters kindle, The Fire book, The Fire Starters ePUBAs I stated in my last wrap up I read a lot of solid books By this I mean that the novels were good and I liked them but I wanted a WOW factor The Fire Starters was the exception Trust me this is a WOW book from start to finishThe setting of the book is Belfast 2014 The Troubles are over but someone is starting a series of fires around the city Sammy Agnew thinks that his son Mark is the arsonist After all when Sammy was young he caused a lot of havoc and he thinks that the violence gene was passed onIn another storyline Jonathan who is the result of uncaring parents is scared that his baby daughter can injure the human race As he is a doctor Jonathan has a medical solution which cannot be considered ethicalThe Fire Starters is a magical realist novel Creatures roam the pages bizarre things happen and surreal situations occurBut the fantasy element is

    eBook Jan Carson · eBook The Fire Starters PDF/EPUB â The Fire Epub / · stroyki.pro fire free, starters kindle, The Fire book, The Fire Starters ePUBIt took me a little while to get on board with the style of The Fire Starters Barney Norris described it as fizzing with energy which about sums it up The style feels a little stream of consciousness at times too a little frenetic But as the novel progresses it becomes evident that this fits the narrative fires are raging across Belfast faster than they can be put outSet in east Belfast the story focuses mostly on two men worried about their children and what they might be capable of one Jonathan who is concerned about his newborn daughter and the other Sammy is worried about his adult sonI'd agree with another uote from the blurb too that this is fiercely original At times it is grittily real at others there are magical elements Recommended Thank you Netgalley and Random House UKTransworld Publishers for the advance copy which was provided in exchange for an honest review
