    [The Falls] EBOOK The beginning of this book mesmerized me much as the very Falls described here by Oates For 120 pages the book was just shy of glued to my hand and I could not put it down Then for the next 200 pages I could barely pick it back up to

    [The Falls] EBOOK My first JCO book and possibly my last Some great ideas and stunning imagery but The Falls got on my nerves pretty fast Oates' pen tends to linger for pages and pages and pageson events that other writers would condense into one or two sentences In particular the play by play on hotel staff handling a woman whose husband just threw himself into Niagara Falls was excruciating That Oates intermittently punctuates her descriptions by italicizi

JCO is one of those writers you either love or hate I happen to love most everything she does The Falls is no exception although I really started to get bored with her story set up Once she finally got the ball rolling about 60 pages into it it was cinematic in scope and really ranks high among her best works Set in the 40 s through the 70 s in duh Niagara Falls NY The Falls describes the falls eerie almost preternatural effect on a family practically destroying it I found myself skim reading through much of the repetitive flashback dialog but at the same time the vision this novel left me with was cinematic in scope I kept imagining it as it would play on the big screen

My first JCO book and possibly my last Some great ideas and stunning imagery but The Falls got on my nerves pretty fast Oates pen tends to linger for pages and pages and pageson events that other writers would condense into one or two sentences In particular the play by play on hotel staff handling a woman whose husband just threw himself into Niagara Falls was excruciating That Oates intermittently punctuates her descriptions by italicizing the mostly cliched inner thoughts of her characters was too much for me Penelope Fitzgerald once said I always feel the reader is very insulted by being told too much Apparently this is not a concern shared by Joyce Carol Oates I waved the white flag around page 80 Perhaps if I had hung around longer the Ariah character might have started to make sense and maybe I would have found that Oates fleshed out complex reasons for her husband s suicide other than that he was gay in the 50s In a pretty cool epigraph Oates seems to be setting the stage for a mysterious suicide that the Falls will cast a spell on an otherwise unlikely jumper Instead her closeted gay husband premeditates his death in the hotel room leaves a note and makes a beeline for the falls How uninteresting

I read The Falls for book club I was looking forward to reading it given its roots in historical events and my past reading of her novel We Were the Mulvaneys The Falls was hands down the worst novel I have read for years If I could I would give it 14 of a star The first few hundred pages are horrid adjective after adjective describing nothing The characters are boring generally unbelievable and have no depth To her credit Joyce Carol Oates offers the reader moments of promise description of Niagara Falls during the 1950s and the events surrounding the Love Canal lawsuit Unfortunately Oates breaks her promise and instead focuses on the lives of the family members caught up in the time and the lawsuit members the reader could care less about I waded like skimmed page after page of this novel for my book club otherwise I would never have gone beyond page 90 only to find myself laughing hysterically by the end The book goes like this pages and pages of meaningless prose and flowery adjectives during which moments of possibility and intellect actually appear only to be abandoned as uickly as it was presented in place of meaningless prose until the reader is hit on the head with the end Oates must have been jolted from her depression or must have been as bored with her own book as I was or she was late for a deadline because she packs a full novel in the last 13 of the book introducing new characters who are as bland as the originals and does absolutely nothing with them Seriously A total disaster of a book
