Description

Finished Sarah Stonich's "The Ice Chorus" last night.

Finished Sarah Stonich's "The Ice Chorus" last night. Great book for sea-lovers, too. Stonich's first novel is a great read, too: "These Granite Islands" (love that title). 4 people found this helpful.

Sarah Stonich has the gift of storytelling that seems lost nowadays in some of today's uninspiring and shallow fiction. I highly recommend this book to anyone who appreciates real human emotion and the construction of a vivid scene. Published by Thriftbooks. Maybe it's the alternating backdrop of a scorching Mexican beach and the cool, stony cliffs of Ireland. Perhaps it's the tragic love story shot through a lens shrouded in misinterpretation and family secrets.

I enjoyed this reading for many reasons. The history, the culture, the setting near the ocean, and the complex look at love, to name a few. Liselle and Stephen have what would appear, for many, to be the perfect life. He's an anthropologist, she's a well respected teacher and film maker. Their son does well in school and is a respectable young man. Yet, what looks good from one side doesn't always present the same from the other side. Stephen's job often requires him to be away. His personality leaves much to be desired, from Liselle's perspective...then came Charlie. Life changed when Liselle's eyes were opened to a more simple, yet more fulfilling way of living. She was finally able to FEEL, and the tables turned.

There is MUCH, MUCH more to this book, and it's a very captivating story. I did find that, at times, it was difficult to determine when, and why, tense and setting switches happened. Other than that, this book is remarkable and definitely one I'd recommend.

I think this is a good story about what it means to love. Sarah Stonich sets us up to see all sorts of love: the love of married people in good and failing relationships; the love of a mother for a son; the love of illicit lovers; the love that family can provide in spite of all of the above. she's got a particular talent, I think, for description of place; I see myself in her Irish cottage as well as I do in her Mexican resort.
I liked the scenes and characters from Ireland best, perhaps because I'm half Irish and the people felt very real to me. I loved Remy from the start and especially after his and his wife's secrets are revealed.

Sarah Stonich has quite a way with words--the way she describes colors and light and people's emotions had me feeling like I was there on the Irish coast/Mexico. I also thought she very accurately captured the emotions of everyone involved in an affair and divorce. I found the story very engaging and I liked how the flashbacks were interspersed with the present day. I will say that I although I enjoyed the ending, it would have been interesting (and perhaps more realistic?) if Charlie had made a different decision. That's all I can say without spoiling it! I really enjoyed Stonich's style and look forward to reading more of her work.

Finished Sarah Stonich's "The Ice Chorus" last night. Superb novel, terrific in more ways than I can count but chief among them is Stonich's way with a story and language as well as the settings: Mexico's Yucatan peninsula and Ireland. Great book for sea-lovers, too. Stonich's first novel is a great read, too: "These Granite Islands" (love that title).

The author has a wonderful ability to describe scenery and artwork. Virtually all of her characters are portrayed in a way that allows the reader to "see" them in much the same way. Although the plot development seemed slow in getting started, overall it was fun to read!

Wow it took a long time to actually relate with the characters, was ready to give up in the middle of the story but since I'm not a quieter, I persevered and can say it was worth it.

I'd give this book a ten! The writing is hauntingly beautiful, almost lyrical, and the story unfolds in such an interesting way I cried at the end. Writing like this is so good it makes me feel like a pretender when I'm writing my books.
I truly loved this book. I could relate to the characters not just because I am an artist married to an archaeologist but because Sarah was able to bring the characters to life in a way that gave you plenty of opportunity to get to know them throughout time. I LOVED how the story was told through time and different countries. It was like going on an adventure. It was a great read, I didn't put it down until I was done!
