REVIEW La petite fille ui aimait trop les allumettes 107 Æ [KINDLE] ❅ La petite fille ui aimait trop les allumettes By Gaétan Soucy – Alone with their authoritarian father on a vast estate where time has stopped two siblings speak a language and inhabit a surreal universe of their own making shapLling truth of their existence A brilliant masterful story in which nothing is as it first seems The Little Girl Who Was Too Fond of Matches is a triumph of suspense linguistic invention and playfulness that peers into the heart of guilt cruelty and violence. I was completely disappointed in this novel and not because there wasn't some good writing in it there was But my expectations were so high for it Even a particular blurb on the cover announced this Soucy fellow this philosopher as being compared almost religiously to Samuel Beckett which got my attention and I wished it hadn't There were several clever lines in the book but not enough to override the lack of any delectable flesh for me to mash my teeth on I was wishing for violence as promised shameful if not perverted scenes submitted for our mutual disapproval and the lack of any imagery for me left the fantasy a bit clouded and even deadened upon my now too witless senses But we shall move on to what is next in our still growing ueue One highlight from page 46 was this The other individual had a revolver in his belt which startled me because from the pictures I'd seen I had always thought firearms were very small whereas in reality my goodness this one was as big as father's balls

This was on a list of the top ten Canadian books so I thought I'd check it outEvery once in a while you hear in the news about extraordinary and unbelievable neglectabuse a kid locked in the basement for years or something and the physical and developmental difficulties that result like an inability to communicate This book was told from the point of view of a child teen in such circumstances and part of getting into the book is figuring out the bizarre language of this isolated creature All women are called either sluts or blessed virgins for example The narrator calls herself a secretarious writer When she talks about being beaten by her father she calls it being given whacks So yeah Horrifying abuse Mysterious and inscrutable writing Like Beckett except that I think you are acually supposed to figure out what is happening in Soucy's book Oh and incest Getting pregnant from said incest And then I THINK but am not sure that the skeleton chained to the wall in the vault was the narrator's twin who was left to starve to death as punishment for her love of matches which killed the mother I think

There are books however short or long that take forever to get through; books that make you twist and dig and plunder for meaning behind painfully skillful cruelly dense language Gaetan Soucy's The Little Girl Who Was Too Fond of Matches is that This isn't a bizarre story its just bizarrely written And bizarre is good Its about two siblings ages estimated around late teens who one morning discover their father dead by hanging One of them decides to venture out to town to purchase a coffin into which they will bury their father in a ditch they will later dig in an as of yet undetermined spot in their vast estate Except neither sibling has ever been to town or spoken to neighbors or even set foot outside of their grounds They've lived their whole lives under the suffocating tutelage of their father their only source of knowledge on life death religion this earth They speak a language they've adopted from their dictionaries of medieval fairy tales and philosophy Their perspective of the world is primitive and skewed They are feral and selectively informedSome books allow the reader to become part of the story but Soucy makes you flit between spectator and puzzle solver The protagonist's view of the world is so minimal and so shifted that it makes it impossible to be one with the character You can't participate because you're still figuring out what's being said The word plays are endless Its like looking through a foggy window through which a shadowy outline is barely visible and each re read of a phrase is the wipe of a hand on the misty glass each an attempt to make out the image And then you do and oh my The protagonist is so unaware that I couldn't decide whether to laugh or cry And that sentiment lasts throughout the entire novel The language that delivers the story is dense but the voice islight Airy The voice lacks understanding you see understanding of what's happening of the gravity of the situation because I'm sure you've since figured out that there's some dark disturbing secret that lies deep within the ambiguity of this book Soucy unbeknownst to us is relating a very serious story about child abuse extreme and perhaps distorted religious devotion guilt gender and human naturehuman psyche in its untamed and rawest form and trust me when I say et cetera but conceals it behind a humorous and naive voice He unveils a somber truth in one paragraph then subverts the weight of this revelation with such unacuainted admissions from the protagonist that you're continually caught between gasps of shock and bursts of laughter Only until the end when all is revealed and that foggy glass is at last clear that we see the picture for what it is and its powerful enough to waken those sleeping eyes and raise the hair on your neck This is a great book It takes time getting used to but in due time you'll be flowing right along the rhythm that is all too distinct and rewarding I wouldn't say its refreshing because I save those for books that are actually refreshing This little novel is macabre and unnerving If this review seems useless its because saying any would be doing the work for youand what would be the fun in thatAlso this must have been a bitch to translate
