The Drowning of Arthur Braxton review ↠ eBook or Kindle ePUB Escence and of how first love can transform the most unhappy of lives into something miraculous It is a dark and brooding modern fairy tale from one of our most gifted write. The Oracle is an old bathhouse in a northern seaside town believed by the locals to have magical properties Three water healers work there and the book opens with the narrative of a teenage girl named Laurel who has been employed there as an assistant cum receptionist Some years later a boy called Arthur Braxton breaks into the building now dilapidated while attempting to escape from a group of classmates who are bullying him and meets a beautiful girl who is swimming in one of the pools Arthur is the butt of his so called friends jokes has no money and struggles to look after his mentally ill father but when he meets Delphina his life is transformed despite the odd circumstances of her life and her strange group of friends The Oracle is in danger of demolition and Arthur finally finds himself with a purpose to save the building and make Delphina happy However mystical forces surround the place and while they may protect Arthur from those who seek to harm him they will also make his mission difficultFrom my holiday notebook Odd story but creative storytelling Billed as an urban fairytale which is accurate but was perhaps a little too urban for me Told mainly in dialect which I don t mind but it seemed a bit inconsistent at times and the constant swearing and Arthur going on about his bloody hard on all the time got on my nerves Also the narrative voices weren t different enough from each other although I did like the different narrative techniues the author used The main problem was that I couldn t believe whatsoever that Arthur s feelings for Delphina could ever have been love They were both so young and his dominant feeling towards her was obviously lust based almost wholly on her looks I did wonder if this was what you were meant to think but coupled with the complete failure of literally every other relationship in the book it s giving a very bleak message if so Overall I enjoyed this but was expecting a lot as I ve seen uite a few five star reviews Additional notes I can t say I disliked this story but I had uite a few reservations about it I was particularly troubled by the depiction of sex sexuality and relationships I felt like there were uite a few disturbing situations Martin s abuse of Laurel the fact that Arthur s motives towards Delphina were so blatantly sexual the odd and sudden thing with Arthur s dad and Stella yet these weren t really resolved as part of the story s conclusion so I had no idea what if any message the book was trying to convey I also couldn t remember how it ended without going back and checking which might be because I ve read so much within the past week but also seems a decent indication that I didn t enjoy it all that much Crucially I didn t like Arthur and I felt sure Delphina deserved better so I wasn t exactly invested in their relationship I did like the surreal details of the plot the Oracle itself and the characters who lived there especially Kester and Pollock but I m afraid I have to disagree with what seems to be popular opinion for me this was no than average De Munich à la Libération. 1938-1944 receptionist Some years later a boy called Arthur Braxton breaks into the building
