Five Quarters of the Orange by Joanne Harris em Orange January/July (Outubro 2011)

Resenhas

Fabulous. Similar themes of family (especially mother-daughter relationships) revenge, forgiveness, love, food, like her Chocolat and The Strawberry Thief. Otherwise a very different, realistic story of 3 kids surviving in an occupied French village in WW2. The youngest returns to the village, hiding what she knows of the truth, only to be forced to reveal her version of the story which she discovers is not quite complete…

Well-written thriller set in an exclusive British boarding school for boys. The author taught for years at a boy's school and she has a good eye for the internal politics, the relationships between the teachers and the administration, and the quirks of the teaching profession. Apart from that we do not see too much of how the school works from the point of view of the pupil.

The plot is driven by a smooth psychopath who as a child was obsessed with the school, considering it a symbol of privilege, always out of reach, and going so far as to infiltrate it posing as a student. Once grown, this dark character decides to infiltrate it again, this time to bring the school down.

The chapters are written alternatively from the unnamed psychopath's point of view and from Roy Straitley's, the Classics teacher, an old curmudgeon who is an institution at St. Oswals and who misses little of what happens in the school. The duel between these two characters is the backbone of the story.

As a thriller, it's an effective story with an interesting setting. The main problem is that you have to suspend disbelief, because the plot is a bit far-fetched, particularly with a plost-twist that Harris uses to surprise her readers. I wouldn't have minded less sensationalism in exchange for a deeper portrayal of the school. Also, I found the ending a bit unsatisfying, since it did not really bring closure. An enjoyable read nevertheless.

I don't like magical realism, but a little bit of everyday magic, the kind that Joanne Harris writes, works for me. After all, wine in the bottle is alive and fermenting. Where Chocolat took off from chocolate, this one takes off from fruity wine. Both were great fun to read.
