Marnie’s schizophrenic father has gone missing again But this is the longest he’s ever been gone and the pressure of the unknown weighs heavily upon Marnie’s mind Her younger sister Jess’s response is to spend her days sitting on the sofa obsessively plucking out her eyelashes one by one; on top of that something ominous appears to have scared away all the n This is a strange bookIt s hard to know if I can say than that without giving away the plot if there is a plot Or giving away what happens to the characters and what they do It is also a bit confusing because sometimes one does not know which character is speaking until one is halfway down the page and then I have to go back to the top of the page and read it again with the other character in mind But that s OK because even the protagonist doesn t really knowAnd also you sometimes don t know whether the events are taking place in the present or in the past But that s OK too because most of the time the protagonist doesn t seem to know that either Marnie and Jess Irving are twenty something sisters whose father has disappeared And in the neighbourhood where they live the cats are disappearing one by one Marnie has a friend Shiuli and two other friends Dylan and Ruth Sometimes they do things together but most times they dont It is about the ambiguities of friendship and love about memory love and revenge and the darkness that is within us I don t think I can say than that without giving away the plot If there is a plot

Ably real manifestation of her despair Whatever he is Jericho is angry He doesn’t want to be here but in order to be free of the ties that bind him to Marnie he has to find out what is wrong with her and fix it before irreparable damage is doneAn utterly original and hugely imaginative debut ADVICE FOR STRAYS is a novel about love loss and a very unusual friendshi This book seems to have stumped a large amount of the book club almost half the people at the meeting had not managed to read through to the end Some also said they might not finish it after hearing what was discussed in the meetingWe all felt that the book was very well written it read very easily even though the topic itself was very confusing Many people in the club felt that although they weren t gripped enough to want to pick the book up as often as they felt they should once they had picked it up they got drawn back in very uickly Some people found the little chapters to be a hinderance to their getting drawn into the book others felt that this gave some good natural breaks to the narrationThe reason why so many people weren t gripped by the book was because it didn t have much of a plot but then that s not what this book is about It was felt that the book didn t go anywhere much things just seemed to happen without much obvious direction The ending we found to be good but it wasn t much of a resolution but then again this is realistic than many neat endings in other booksThe main source for discussion came from the lion Jericho and whether he was real or not There seems to be a lot of evidence in the book to say that he was very real at certain points But then again how can a lion be really living in a suburban street and talking to a person We had a short discussion on what we each do to give ourselves confidence in the same way that Marnie uses Jericho This gave us some insight into the reasons why someone would invent an imaginary friend later in life Eventually we all agreed that Jericho is a very subjective character in the book everyone seemed to interpret him very differentlyOverall we gave the book a 4 out of 10 with marks ranging from 0 to 7
