Disobedience



Disobedience Reading someone else s e mail is a quiet, clean enterprise There is no pitter pattering around the room, no opening and closing the desk drawers, no percussive creasing as you draw the paper from the envelope and unfold it In and out of the files, no trace It could be the work of a ghost, this electronic eavesdropping.Seventeen year old Henry Shaw learns of his mother s passionate affair when he stumbles across her e mail correspondence with her lover His image of her is shattered, but he cannot resist his electronic eavesdropping Henry s younger sister, Elvira, is scornful of technology, stuck as she is in 1862 with her Civil War infantry regiment For Elvira, much to her mother s sorrow and her historian father s pride, is a hardcore Civil War re enactor Displaced from Vermont to Chicago, each member of the Shaw family finds their dreams hard to realize and their expectations of life turned on their head Disobedience is a compassionate, sharp, wicked and utterly contemporary novel about families, love and loyalty by a major literary talent.

    I have enjoyed some Jane Hamilton booksthan others This one was very good Her prose is beautiful, and her subject matter interesting I liked the quirkiness of the characters Civil War reenactments, musicians that play music most people have never heard Their interests sometimes obsessions with the past sometimes made me forget that the setting was modern day until it started talking about e mail again I particularly liked that she chose to tell the story that is largely about a w I have enj...

    This book grated against my skin, but I wouldn t say it was a bad book, and the secondary character a die hard 11 year old civil war re enactor who also happened to be a girl was fascinating and I loved her I kept wanting to stuff a sock in the narrator her brother s mouth, to hearabout her It was like being invited to someone else s family reunion, and finding yourself really interested in everyone in the family except for the one pouty, self involved teenager you are seated next to This book grated against my skin, but I wouldn t say it was a bad book, and the secondary character a die hard 11 year old civil war re enactor who also happened t...

    Books like Disobedience aren t normally my cup of tea But this melancholy coming of age story goes well beyond the usual book club fare The story of sweet, sad Henry Shaw and his amazingly disfunctional but incredibly compelling family is so very much worth reading Its one of my go to novels and I ve thumbed through it many times.From his border line, Civil War reenacting sister who w...
