Comments Turtle: The American Contrition of Franz Ferdinand

  • Caroline

    It’s been four days since I finished the book, so I think I can clearly talk about it now without being influenced by post-book depression feelings. I don’t usually do this, but I wanted to write a proper thing for this one, considering I know the author and all. So, here we go:This book is autobiographical. Before anything, I just want to say something: I don’t read autobiographies. As in never. Most of the time, when I start reading some book of this kind, I get frustrated with the perso [...]

    I recently remembered that I had impulsively downloaded this e-book a few weeks ago, so I thought I'd read the first few pages to see more of what it was about so I could read it after I finished some of the books I'm currently reading. I finished it in two days because I just couldn't put it down. First, I didn't realize this was a memoir until I started reading, but I think it made it that much more powerful. Not only was the story itself gripping, but the writing was fantastic. The imagery wa [...]

    Right up front, it's important to know that this is an independently-published semi-fictionalized memoir by a Tumblr user with a love for language, and it carries the same disclaimer that my friend Phil's novel had: I don't give out ratings just to spare people's feelings. This actually was amazing.I am in the process of writing a more professional-sounding review for as we speak. For you fine folks, here's the "in case you haven't heard of this" rap.Homegirl has the enviable ability to craft g [...]

    Good first novel. Does a good job of creating realistic characters.

    I decided to order "Turtle" after reading "Self-Published Kindling." And, wow-- it is a spectacular first novel. Ms. Everett invites the reader on an associative hopscotch through childhood and young adulthood with the ease and control of a seasoned author. She glides between years and locations to build a lengthy cast of compelling characters which is never a chore to follow. The writing is crisp and parts of the prose are truly beautiful.But these are just the basics. Most importantly, this st [...]

    I'm not usually one to write reviews beyond just giving books a rating, but I felt compelled to write a little something about this wonderful book. The second that I started reading, I was drawn in. Non-linear books can often be difficult to follow, and easy to give up on, but neither are the case with Turtle. Mik Everett's voice is the type that I think makes for the very best books: honest, almost painfully and uncomfortably so at times. The story is so unique, and yet somehow holds so many as [...]

    This was a difficult book for me to read; I’m not sure whether it was the content or the style of writing, but I found it hard to keep my attention focused; it was as if my mind would rather deal with anything other than the story that was unfolding before me. The writing is exceptional and Mik tells her true tale of coming to terms with loss and adjustment in a matter of fact ‘only if you’ve lived through it’ kind of way. I felt a little like I was intruding at times, but her openness c [...]
