review The Comet Seekers

One Day meets The Time Traveler's Wife in this spellbinding magical debut novel about love loss hope and heartbreak that shows us that for each of us the world can be as lonely or as beautiful as the comets that illuminate the skies above usRóisín and François first meet in the snowy white expanse of Antarctica And everyth. The Comet Seeker is a marvelous beautifully written emotional debut It seems to be very hard for me to write a review as this is a book which is hard to describe it needs to be felt The Comet Seeker is the story of two people Roisin and Fran ois who share a connection that seems to be written in the stars or appropriately in comets They meet for the first time in Antarctica where they both work she as a researcher he as a chef The book starts with the day Comet Giacobini become visible in the sky in 2017 with the final chapter returning to the same date Each chapter of the book presents glimpses from the lives of the two characters whenever a comet is visible in the skies During their existence they both had a deep relationship with a special person and suffered loss The two lives intersect like the threads of a spiderweb and we discover connections between our heroes that emphasize the thought that they are destined for each other Oh I should also mention that there are ghosts in the story only visible to certain characters when a comet flies close to the Earth I do not want to say anything about them as I want you to read the book to find out When I started to read the novel I was expecting a beach read because the pages were flying I was on the beach so I had no problem with that only that I ended up with tears in my eyes by page 20 Yes it only took that long to care and to realize it is not the easy read that I thought I cannot define this book It is a love story a ghost story it also have bits and pieces of magical realism it is a story about loss and about being stuck in a life that makes you unhappy without the possibility to get out without hurting the ones you love It is a book about the power of family ties It is a book that revolves around comets and about having high aspirations It is many things and all amazing It is sad but also joyful it makes you feel anguish and you can also feel comfort The proof that ghosts are no better or worse off than the rest of the population they too need others to survive Thank to Helen Sedgwick Random House UKVintage and Netgalley for this copy in exchange for an honest review

The Comet Seekers

Ing changesWhile Róisín grew up in a tiny village in Ireland ablaze with a passion for science and the skies and for all there is to discover about the world François was raised by his beautiful young mother who dreamt of new worlds but was unable to turn her back on her pastAs we loop back through their lives glimpsing ea. I am afraid The Comet Seekers and I were not a good matchWhile I appreciated the lyrical writing it wasn t enough to sustain my interest Things were moving slowly the many characters from past and present confused me especially in the beginning I never felt engaged with the story never really cared for any of the characters This novel was too melancholy and too ponderous and it felt much longer than it wasThe ghosts drove me insane as I never uite got their meaning I personally would have loved a lot science and fewer ghosts I can get my head around sciency matters even though I m illiterate when it comes to astronomy not a subject that ever interested me but ghosts and other such supernatural beings don t do it for meThe narrator of this book did a great job so I can t blame my lack of enthusiasm on the audiobookSo this gets an indulgent 3 stars
