    One thought on “Trespass”

    1. I bought Rose Tremain s Trespass in a pound shop Actually, it was bought for me by a person who had never been to Poundland before or so he claimed A pound for a new, shiny hardback is not a bad deal at all I read this book aloud to the book giver and I thought he enjoyed it, even if he fell asleep occasionally or made fun of my accent Sadly, I had to finish it by myself as the aforementioned book giver no longer speaks to me quite rightly so It is possible that my heart wasn t in it, or maybe T [...]

    3. Trespass by Rose Tremain is classic Tremain beautifully written, poignant and painful The focus is two sets of relationships and the cataclysmic intersection a British brother and sister, both gay and successful and a French brother and sister, both darkly disturbed, wealthy by birth but unsuccessful with their lives These characters and their relationships are strongly developed But one of the pleasures of the book are the number of subsidiary characters who are also fully developed and powerfu [...]

    4. Excellent atmospheric gothic with an undertone of real melancholy about blighted childhoods and the way they can haunt into adulthood Tremain is an extraordinarily readable writer this is completely different than the other book of her s I ve read the Road Home , except that both featured characters that suck you in, realized settings and smooth prose Here, Tremain takes on two pairs of 60 something siblings who couldn t be different, Audrun and Aramon, French peasants living on the verge of di [...]

    5. Rose Tremain remains one of my favorite authors There is nothing flashy or false about the way she slowly dissects the lives of others, picking at scabs and uncovering hurts revealing truths many of us have spent a lifetime trying to articulate In Trepass, her latest novel, a British man in his later years is murdered in the French countryside Tremain shows us, in her slow, graceful prose, how this may be the best possible outcome for the man, and for his murderer.Perhaps what I like best about [...]

    6. A masterfully told story Beautiful descriptive language Dark and disturbing subject matter Deep with symbolism I am amazed by this author s control and fearlessness.

    7. Two things drew me to Rose Tremain s latest novel, Trespass One was the fact that it was set in the C vennes mountains of the Central Massif south central France, a region I know well , and the second is that it was described as being very dark I love France and have spent many happy years there, and I love well written dark books.Trespass revolves around five middle aged characters two French siblings, Audrun and Aramon, who share a secret past, an English garden designer and writer, Veronica, [...]

    8. My mum bought this book and read it first We often share books and in the vast majority of cases her thoughts on how much I ll enjoy it are spot on So when she handed me Trespass and said, I ll be interested to see what you think , I was intrigued Usually, it s something along the lines of Read this, you ll love it or The story in this is superb So I kind of felt like I was being experimented on before I even startedI ve obviously heard of Tremain before, if only because I ve noticed a sizeable [...]

    9. I so wanted to like this book It sounded so promising The first chapter was really very good and I was looking forward to the frightening and unstoppable series of consequences mentioned on the back of my paperback copy Sadly, by the time we got to that point, I was totally and completely disenchanted by every single one of the characters including the isolated stone farmhouse in southern France, which is a bit of a character in itself and, trust me, I am usually quite enchanted by isolated farm [...]

    10. Okay I can t rate this novel I love the way Rose Tremain writes, her words and sentences I was really liking the story until there was a scene I could nt get past, not sure this needed to be so graphically out there Anyway it ruined the bok for me Guess I m just too much of a prude.

    12. Trespass of land by foreigners and by one s own family members of one s own personal body and personal space of intruders into one s relationships Trespass is the underlying theme of this novel How this violation is dealt with by the various characters makes up the story line and the inevitable conflict that is at the core of any good story In the south of France is the mountainous region of the Cevennes This is not a pretty postcard area of France, but one of rugged, mountains, full of valleys, [...]

    13. My aunty has recommended Rose Tremain s books to me so many times and gave me a copy of Sacred Country years ago when I was still at university Well, it took Simon Savidge s late Gran to get me reading a Tremain, and I certainly can see why she is a highly rated writer Though the mysteries that unravelled weren t all that mysterious to me at all I must have a sick mind because I always think the worst of characters in books and what sinister acts they may have committed in the past and often, I [...]

    14. Trespass was my first Tremain s book, and I chose to read it almost accidentally, as I could not remember the context in which it ended up in my e reader Trespass is a dark book, not the one I could love, and still I couldn t help but admire the author s capacity to create these dark characters which I feel will haunt me for a long time now The plot of the book revolves around two families, British Vereys and French Lunels Both of the families are composed of a brother and a sister, and through [...]

    15. Lots of people liked this book It is hard for me to rate because it was well written and Ms Tremain has a tremendous reputation But the characters, even the ones we were meant to be sympathetic toward, were just so very unlikable From the antiques dealer to Adrun Even the child who was really a minor character was unlikable Horrible things happening to horrible people Were they that way because of their upbringing in the end I couldn t bring myself to care I was cringing through a great deal of [...]

    16. Rose Tremain is not only a prolific writer, but she is a great one Each of her novels is different in theme, tenor, and topic Trespass, her most recent book, is a dark, eerie and grim themed novel with a definite gothic undertone Set in the southern part of France, in an area known as the Cevennes region, the land itself is portrayed as something feral and alive, so filled with lush growth, insects, snakes and sounds, that it has a life of its own.In this region live a sister and brother, Audrun [...]

    17. For the most part I am a live and let live reader If you can barely wait the 20 minutes it takes for the next James Patterson to appear that s okay with me Got that Dave Eggers monkey on your back I ll give you a ride home anyway Don t think that Rose Tremain is a Great Writer Our friendship must end That s all there is to it If you haven t read her we can still be pals but don t think that I am ever going to stop trying to make you read her Believe it when I tell you I am the Michael Phelps of [...]

    18. It says in the blurb From the moment he Anthony Verey arrives at the Mas Lunel, a frightening and unstoppable series of consequences is set in motion I am up to page 104 and he still hasn t arrived The first few chapters were very confusing, a different character in every chapter Jodi Piccoult style but Jodi Piccoult does it much better, it has only just become apparent how these characters are connected in the 11th chapter and I m still wondering where Melodie the little girl in the first chapt [...]

    19. From the blurb I thought this book was going to be full of intrigue and mystery, just my kind of thing The setting was beautiful and the first chapter an amazing start BUT it just went downhill from there Set mostly in the Cevennes in France, the novel revolves around two sets of siblings Audrun and Aramon Lunel who grew up in an old stone house called the Mas Lunel that Aramon is now trying to sell, and Anthony and Veronica Verey who are funny enough both gay Anthony s life is falling apart and [...]

    20. Is it just me, or has contemporary English fiction grown a tad anemic lately And I do mean English Commonwealth writers, the Scottish, Irish and Welsh don t seem to have this problem Tremain s Trespass was excellent at depiction, at conjuring a scene and a psychological mood, at efficiently limning character, at the tight evocativeness of the writing even, and yet its ambition was small The novel seems prompted by a formulaic problem, which it fulfills with imagination without ever getting beyon [...]

    21. Great, creepy read Two pairs of siblings and some very dark secrets My first Rose Tremain, thank you Simon Savidge Next up The Road Home

    22. This book gripped me from the first This is a tale set in the Cevennes, a still isolated area of Southern France Here are farms Mas , still worked by the families who have lived here for generations, or else bought by foreigners from England, the Low Countries, who want to live the dream.We meet alcoholic Aramon, his lonely sister Audrun, who are Cevennes through and through We meet long term English residents Veronica and her lover Kitty And then we meet Anthony, Veronica s brother, who thinks [...]

    23. A story of cultural collision, Trespass details the events that surround the arrival of septuagenarian antiques dealer, Anthony Verey, in the Cevennes in southern France Disappointed with his life in London, Anthony decides to buy a property in France and spend the last part of his life living somewhere beautiful Fate, in the form of a chain smoking estate agent, takes Anthony to the Mas Lunel, the home of Aramon Lunel, a man sickening from the darkness of his own past as much as his unhealthy l [...]

    24. This novel bleeds sadness, regret and decay Yes, it s a bona fide downer and almost painfully depressing, but Rose Tremain is a very classy writer and she gets you to swallow the bitter pill with what can only be called graceful and elegant prose Not quite as good as The Road Home, this is still a perceptive and subtle novel marred by its faux thriller structure and artificial intrigue than by the weighty, consuming grief bearing down on its characters.3.5 stars

    25. I was really looking forward to reading this book and the first couple of chapters were a great opening into the characters, however somewhere along the line I just became disinterested in their little petty lives and I just didn t get what the writer was portraying perhaps I was looking for something all the little trivialities and the insignificantly ness of their little lives did nothing to me except infuriate me as they hung onto their past hurts

    26. I enjoyed reading this novel set in France with English ex patriots and locals as primary characters It combines character study of damaged individuals with a mystery and was a story that I really wanted to read and know the outcome This is a new author and setting for me I believe I will try of Tremain s books.

    27. For a book about a bunch of middle aged people in rural France, this novel keeps you on the edge of your seat What happens when a collection of characters are pushed hard by the desperation of losing the only thing they love I found myself continually surprised by the answers to this question as I read this book.

    28. This is my first Tremain book I love the combination of plot, character and insightfulness in her writing And, of course, the place that she is describing Hidden within the pages are gems that were satisfying I will be reading of her work.
