Review Wild Children

Bad children are punished Be bad a child is told and you’ll be turned into an animal marked with your crimeThe Wild Children are forever young but that too can be a curseFive children each tell a different story of what they became One Oh boyThe premise of this is fantastic Roberts has a great and wonderfully dark imagination It makes me think a bit of Pinnochio with the donkey childrenThen in the second part the world suddenly grows so much bigger and we discover that there's to the Wild Children that first seenNow for the problemsThe writing is unclear The setting is obviously not modern but I had a hard time getting a handle on when exactly we were It didn't help that at times word choices were shockingly modernThe narrative is vague circular hard to follow at times It's told in a somewhat conversational style with child narrators but stillI got tired of reading the same sentence three times in slightly different iterationsThen we get to Act Two and things go completely bonkers Suddenly there are creatures other than Wild Children; some children can steal pain from other children and sell it forsomething it's not entirely clearThe transformations themselves have something to do with sin or they don't it's unclearMaybe some of this gets cleared up but I'm not in the mood to wade through circuitous prose to get thereBut the premise was so wonderfully dark in a sort of fairy tale way The old sort of fairy tale where the wicked stepsisters get their eyes pecked out by birds SoI'll take a break and maybe I can eventually come back

Ves of two brothers in the form of a beautiful flaming birdFinally the oldest child learns that what is right can be horribly wrongTogether they tell a sixth story of a Wild Girl who can’t speak for herself and doesn’t seem Wild at a 45I thoroughly enjoyed this book I think I misread the synopsis initially so it was not what I was expecting at all and is probably what made it so refreshing to meThe book was totally bizarre but very well written Each chapter is basically a story centred round a particular character and told from their POV so you really get to emphasise with each one There are references to each chapter character throughout the novel however so there is the possibility to observe them through other characters as well as through their own eyes It sounds like this idea of switching POV’s should not work but Roberts pulls it off effortlessly The chaptersstories are all so wonderfully interlinked but so different from the preceding one that they could be read as short stories on their own I’m not going to go into each one however as it would spoil too many things for potential readersRoberts writing is simple but beautiful This was weird and original and very well told A must read if you like your literature with a bit of uirkiness thrown in An advance reader copy was kindly supplied by the publishers through Netgalley
