review ↠ eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF Ï Claire Fuller Swimming Lessons characters ß 108 Claire Fuller Ï 8 characters Ingrid Coleman writes letters to her husband Gil about the truth of their marriage but instead of giving them to him she hides them in the thousands of books he has collected over the years When Ingrid has written her final letter she disappears from a Dorset beach leaving behind her beautiful but dilapidat. It s difficult to live with both hope and grief I didn t really know what to expect when going into Swimming Lessons I haven t read the author s previous work Our Endless Numbered Days and I couldn t decide from the synopsis whether I was going to get myself into another thriller spawned by the Gone Girl craze or a uiet contemporary like say Everything I Never Told You I can say confidently now that it s the latterSwimming Lessons is a character driven novel about a family a love a marriage and how hope can be the worst thing sometimes Here the hope of Gil Coleman and his daughters Nan and Flora has haunted the family for twelve years ever since Ingrid Coleman Gil s wife and the girls mother disappeared and was never found Though Ingrid presumably drowned the lack of a concrete answer plagues the family could that woman disappearing around the corner be her Could the phone ringing in the middle of the night be their mother finally wanting to return homeThe opening chapter sees Gil suffering an accident after seeing his long lost wife standing below his window His daughters rush home to be with their father but are perturbed by Gil s claims that he saw Ingrid and that she is alive Mysterious phone calls in the middle of the night from withheld numbers make Nan and Flora even anxious especially when Gil claims their mother was on the phoneIt s a beautiful uiet sometimes eerie novel On the one hand it s simply a compelling story of people s lives from Flora s perspective in the present and through Ingrid s letters that reveal the history of her relationship with Gil but on the other it constantly has the reader wondering what is real Did Gil really see Ingrid that day Or is it the delusions of an old man keeping Ingrid aliveThe best parts of the story are Ingrid s letters They weave a tale of a young woman who gets caught up in a love affair with her enigmatic college professor before becoming pregnant and settling into a troubled marriage Secrets emerge and tragedy arises all in the author s straight forward non manipulative style All books are created by the reader I really loved perhaps most of all the running theme of how the reader brings their own interpretations and experiences to a book Early on we see a young Gil collecting used books with notes in the margin because he believes these are special little insights into the readers themselves And then of course Ingrid s story and all the answers Gil Nan and Flora seek are hidden within the books of Gil s collection Ingrid leaves her letters and little pieces of herself behind in the books scattered around the house meaning the answers were always right there within reach The author leaves us with this thought provoking message books contain the stories of the readers are defined and interpreted by the readers no two readers ever read the same book or leave the same things behind in itBlog Facebook Twitter Instagram Youtube
