The Chemistry of Tears

free read The Chemistry of Tears ´ E-book, or Kindle E-pub free download õ E-book, or Kindle E-pub ✓ Peter Carey Ncanny imitation of life that will link these two people across a century Through the clockwork bird Henry and Catherine will confront the mysteries of creation the power of human invention and the body’s astonishing chemistry of love and feeling. 3 and 12 starsI read Carey s Oscar and Lucinda with an online group many years ago and I m wishing I could ve done the same with this my second of his novels Though I recognize his many merits I m just not sure Carey is for meI was reminded of Oscar as I read about Henry Both are men who find themselves on a strange journey in a strange place due to an obsession obsessions that border on madness and have to do with the building of a folly at the intersection of Art and Science Henry is not the only one with an obsession however The past and present are full of obsessors I alternated between liking and not liking the voices Carey used for his main characters I didn t like Catherine s and then I did I liked Henry s and then I didn t but that may have been because Sumper s voice through Henry basically takes over Henry s at many points and I found Sumper for the most part boring but isn t that the case with obsessors we are forced to listen to even Henry tells us he is bored with Sumper I admired the flawless construction when Carey mixed Catherine s voice with Henry sI think I would ve benefited from reading this book with a group being able to bat around ideas of which there are many especially when it came to the ending which I thought was brilliantly written and yet I m still not sure what it all means And even though Carey may not be for me I still intend to read his Jack Maggs

This novel seemed promising but never really reeled me inCatherine Gehrig grief stricken at the death of her secretlover throws herself into her work at a London museum restoring an enormous complex automaton Along the way she learns the story of Henry Brandling who commissioned the design of the automaton for his dying son a century earlierNeither Catherine nor Henry are particularly sympathetic characters Catherine is prickly and difficult and though this is attributable to her grief it didn t make me like her any Henry is endearing especially in his love for his child but his story unfortunately becomes hijacked by the story of the automaton s creator the annoying and verbose Sumper whose own story also gets hijacked eventually by the story of Sumper s mentor Which I found all rather dullThere was some lovely writing Henry s saw tooth pen strokes had cut wormholes into timeThrough one of these wormholes as thin as a drinking straw I had seen all that bright and poisonous invention and I found the relationship between Catherine and her assistant dramatic and interesting to readBut overall the book was just too cryptic for me At one point Catherine muses on Henry Brandling s story what was initially confusing would never be clarified no matter how you stared and swore at it One learned to live with fuzziness and ambiguity But I m afarid I did t learn to live with fuzziness and ambiguity At the end of the book I understood that some epiphany had occurred but I didn t know what it was and I wasn t sufficently interested to re read it and work it out Which isn t really the mark of a great book is it
