REVIEW Ý TACUAREMBOFC.CO Ò Louis de Bernières SUMMARY Ô The Dust That Falls from Dreams Louis de Bernières Ò 1 SUMMARY S out of the opportunities and devastations that follow the Great WarLouis de Bernières’ magnificent and moving novel follows the lives of an unforgettable cast of characters as the Edwardian age disintegrates into the Great War and they strike out to seek what happiness can be salvaged from the ruins of the old world. This story centres around the McCosh family an ordinary English family with four daughters and a batch of servants living a comfortable life in the start of the 20th century It follows their lives and those of their friends and neighbours through WWI and beyond into the rebuilding of a post war England Much of what happens to the McCosh s and their friends was being re enacted all over Europe The young men going to war some dying some returning maimed in body or soul the women finding vocations and a voice morning the loss of loved ones and many uestioning their faith Ultimately it is a love story and demonstrates the many types of love fierce demonstrative obsessive and patient that can survive war and build relationshipsI enjoyed but didn t love this book It is beautifully written and the prose has a light touch whether describing the horrors of war or the little daily pleasures of peacetime such as walking by the river or having tea and scones I thought the sections dealing with conditions in the trenches were particularly well written in a way that made you feel the mud and the deprivation and the exploits and stunts of the airmen in their flimsy aircraft were also some of the best descriptions of early aviation I ve read in a novel I did feel that the book suffered by being just a tad too long particularly the post war sections where everyone is working out what they want to do with their lives However it was a very lovely gentle read with lots of small highs and lows and a satisfying ending 35

REVIEW Ý TACUAREMBOFC.CO Ò Louis de Bernières SUMMARY Ô The Dust That Falls from Dreams Louis de Bernières Ò 1 SUMMARY Lowed by the apocalypse that will overwhelm their world as they come to adulthoodFor Rosie the path ahead is full of challenges torn between her love for two young men her sense of duty and her will to live her life to the full she has to navigate her way through extraordinary times Can she and her sisters build new live. If you re like me and have an interest in late 1800 s early 1900 s England that borders on obsession or if you just like a well written story then you will definitely enjoy Louis de Berni res latest novel The Dust That Falls From Dreams The only way I can possibly describe this novel is that it is like a sweep of a paintbrush with every colour imaginable Covering all aspects of life before during and after World War One de Berni res paints a picture that is both beautiful and occasionally distressing and that had me giggling in some parts and crying in othersI ll be honest and say I found it a little jumpy at the beginning as it moved between a number of first person narratives but it settled uickly and read uite nicely so nicely that I had almost forgotten about the instability of these early chapters I initially hated the ending but after I thought about it for a bit I decided I was actually really happy about it and I have everything crossed that it might lead to a seuel please Mr de Berni resWhile the overarching themes are love and war and how the former can survive the latter there are others touched upon also most notably religion In this case there is an interesting contrast between Rosie McCosh who is almost fanatically rigid in her religious beliefs and the Reverend Captain Fairhead a man of the cloth who sees the horrors of the trenches in France which leads him to uestion his own beliefs and why any God would allow such atrocities to take placeFor me this wasn t the typical love and war novel that I ve read before In many others but by no means all the young men go off to war while the women stay at home waiting for their sweethearts to return In this case however de Berni res uses the McCosh girls to show the important role that women played in the war effort both as nurses and in a variety of other roles The women in this novel are very different from those in other novels set in this time period the introduction of the character Gaskell introduces another dimension to women and people in general at the time that is not usually exploredAnother difference to other war novels I ve read was the larger focus on the airmen Usually we see things only from the perspective of the men in the mud of the trenches and de Berni res shows us this uite vividly However we also see through the character of Daniel Pitt what it was like to be flying over the war as part of the Royal Flying Corps I don t think I d ever had as much of an appreciation for the risk these men took until I went to a WWI Exhibition a couple of months ago you can read about that here for not only were they at risk of being shot down by enemy guns but also of their death being brought about simply due to their aircraft crashing for whatever reason The aerial aces mentioned names such as Albert Ball and Edward Mick Mannock names I only learnt this year at the WWI Exhibition were real figures in the war giving the novel a sense of reality that I think makes it just that little bit sad to readI wanted so badly to give this book five stars But unfortunately there s one thing that caused me to only give four and it isn t anything to do with the story There were some small but to me fairly obvious typos that weren t picked up during editing at this point I m hoping I didn t miss any typos in this post and they have made it into print If this was an uncorrected manuscript I wouldn t have an issue but I picked this up in a bookshop It was a bit disappointing that such a great book by an author like de Berni res would have errors in it There aren t lots and they are sort of grouped so it looks like there s just been a few pages missed here and there but it was enough to annoy me Hopefully these errors are removed for subseuent editionsErrors aside this was a truly beautiful book and I can safely say that it s probably my favourite new release I ve read this year my previous one is here I honestly don t think this book is for everybody but it is definitely for me So if you decide to read it based on what I ve said just make sure you do so with the knowledge that this book is basically exactly what I like to read and as a result I m heavily biased towards it
