Book review:

Beyond Black by Hilary Mantel this book is morris who is alison's spirit guide and she knew morris before he passed over and morris is almost a bridge to allison's past because allison grew up in a town called aldershot which i had to look up because you know 

I mean yank i don't know these towns i have not been to the uk that often but it doesn't look like that great of a town and the entire time she lived there she lit her mother while she was growing up was a prostitute 

May have seen dead people herself and their apartment was constantly flooded with men who were basically thieves and up to probably more sinister happenings and allison has repressed a lot of these and this trauma plays upon her present especially through her spirit guide morris 

Who it's kind of funny that mantle lets allison be tawdry and she bemoans the fact that morris isn't a nice spirit guide you know he's not like named running deer or a persian prince or something you know 

He's a he's a shabby petty thief with tattered clothing that's constantly uh playing with himself when she's the only one that can see him or if she attempts to get another job you know he'll throw stuff around 

So basically he he's a dick okay so the novel chronicles the relationship of allison to her past colette to allison and them making their way through this decaying world which i don't think we've quite seen since graham greene's earlier novels but you know there's probably people out 

There are working in this but it seems as if with the rise of the popularity of folk car everybody wants to return to the pastoral within britain and this seems to strike true at least i know i'm projecting from an american viewpoint but our rural areas are kind of going to this rather quickly around here 

So i doubt it's different any place else in the world there are some beautiful scenes in the book um one that was particularly haunting to me was this takes place during the 90s 

I believe because princess die is killed in an accident and allison and all of her psychic friends know about it before the news ever comes which is the first time that doubt creeps in nicolette's mind that this may all be true and there's a wonderful scene where princess die who is known to visit psychics and mediums appears to allison 

She doesn't know what has happened which i guess is common within this book this is common she's not quite sure what happened she actually believes she may be in a hospital or somewhere else 

She's confused but she's trying to relay messages but she's struggling through this confusion and she has press clippings of her pinned to the hem of her disheveled and dirty dress and it's just such a haunting image it was really well done and i'm not even really like a huge princess dye fan 

But i thought that was just such a wonderful scene and the book is full of such scenes and i loved it because on the unlisted uh or backlisted podcast one of the women that was on there

I think she was a reviewer for london review book she goes this book splits audiences in half those who like it and those who are wrong which is why i wore my new t-shirt from the bat conservatory that i talked to you about uh with my last process video this was one of my christmas gifts more money going to the conservation of bats and either you love bats or 

You are wrong but yeah so hopefully i haven't i didn't want to give away too many plot points i want to give you just enough to kind of tease it out for you maybe spark some interest if you have not you know looked into this book if you look up hillary mantle you're going to find 

Lots of discussions about wolf hall bringing up the bodies mirror and the light you know that wolf hall or thomas cromwell trilogy not i think there was one video on this book made about 10 years ago 

So i was like okay time to actually do it now i would have a suggestion for you if you're going to read this book i'd highly recommend mantel's memoir at the same time giving up the ghost because they kind of bookend each other very well they they complement each other and one is just as haunting as

The other and the thing that i love about beyondblack is it's one of those books that lives in your mind after you finished reading it it is not ham-fisted in its symbolism and you kind of make the connections 

Yourself after you finish reading it and you're thinking about and you're like oh this parallels this and this was going on her writing on landscape 

I think nature writers can get much to tweet her writing about landscape um trying to escape past trauma and just the power within human relationships makes it a very brilliant read and i actually did not

I was going to do this review earlier but i sent this book as a gift so yeah i didn't want to ruin it for the person so i hope she's enjoying the book.
