    One thought on “The Illusionist”

    1. A real disappointment from an author whose previous work ("How many miles to Babylon?", "The Captains and the Kings") I (still) find exceptional. The book is a first-person narrative of victimhood - the main protagonist is such a self-pitying classic wife as victim you just want to smack her. OK, lady, so your man done you wrong, get over yourself already - nobody wants to listen to you whine about it for 200-odd pages! And the shocking "plot twist" at the end? Guess what - I saw it coming after [...]

    2. I am biased. I love Jennifer Johnston - How many miles to Babylon, Captains and the Kings and Shadows on our skin - all of which I read ages ago. I was fortunate to have listened to her and my other favorite author Colum McCann speak to one another at the literary festival (Cuirt) in Galway two years ago. Now I want to catch up again on her other books.I enjoy Johnstons easy flowing prose which packs in so much - that I have to make sure not to gloss over something - somewhat similar to William [...]

    3. I saw a whole shelf of Jennifer Johnston in the library and remembered I read one once that was pretty good. This is also pretty good. It's kind of old-fashioned, but only in the way that this is what lit fic was like when I was younger. It's very well written and structured and reminds you that marrying someone who won't tell you anything about themselves is often a mistake. The relationship between Stella and her daughter is very painful to read about and one can't help but be pleased that Ste [...]

    4. This book infuriated me. Martyn has to one of the worst, most despicable characters I have ever read. And I just finished Wuthering Heights. (Which I loved, but let's be honest the majority of the characters are terrible people). I somewhat liked the ending, but the book in general just made me angry. I think it would have been better if the author hadn't tried so hard. It seemed that she was desperately trying to have achingly, beautiful prose that was deep and thought provoking. But instead it [...]

    5. This is my first Jennifer Johnston, and I can safely say that it did not disappoint. I enjoyed the novel, but I must admit that it was quite difficult to grasp the format of the book - which is not divided into chapters, but into slices of memories and flashbacks which vary from half a page to five pages long.The reader is let into the subconscious of Stella Macnamara, who narrates 'The Illusionist', and it is Johnston's ability to connect the reader with Stella's mind that makes the book a cons [...]

    6. This book god did I love to hate it. I mean the idea of it was a good book but dear god did I hate Martyn. Johnston did a brilliant job in creating characters which you just despised with everything you had both Martyn and Robin. Stella I felt bad for although I did find her quite annoying at times but when I saw the abuse that Martyn put her through well then I had empathy for her after all.The book was fantastic and the ending was very well thought off and I didn't see it coming. She has manag [...]

    7. This was my first Jennifer Johnston book which I read for A-level and I really liked her. While many others in my class found this book boring, I found it quite enchanting. I loved how it explore women's relationship, between mother and daughters.

    8. -too much jumping around between current and past-got restless every time i read-don't like the writing style-have to figure out who the characters are whenever the author starts a new part-breaks up into many parts, not chapters-never finished reading it

    9. I'd never even heard of Jennifer Johnston before and through some happenstance I found and read this one. I loved it, I love the no-fanfare beautiful style it's written. Shall definitely read more of her books!

    10. Wanted a book about a magician, got a book about spousal abuse. Now feel pretty depressed, but I suppose that means it was well executed.

    11. It’s a wonderfull book, I want to read it again and again over the years, and I love the movie"The illusionist"with Edward Norton and Jessica Biel.I`ve watched 5 times till now.
