the writing is nice but everything else is upsetting. The characters are all horribly broke no redeeming features presented. no character appears to have any redeeming features at all. depressing gratuitous misery. ( )

After a deceptively low key start, one can begin to appreciate the difficulties faced by the main character, Futh, who is taking a walking holiday along the Rhine, after recently separating from his wife. His childhood was torn apart when his mother walked out on her marriage and Moore describes, gradually and sensitively, how that has lead to the situation in his present life. As the book progresses, you begin to see how Futh has been taken advantage of by many of the people in his life and how, because of his personality, he has often been unaware of this. Much of his current life is taken up with recalling events from his childhood and this adds to his blindness to his present circumstances. In an intriguing detail, this blindness is contrasted with his sensitivity to aromas, which has lead to a career in the manufacturing of synthetic smells. Moore provides a revealing portrait of Futh as someone who, contrary to appearances does not understand all that is going on around him.

Futh returns to Germany to recover from the devastation of his failed marriage.
Recounting his memories of an earlier trip to Germany & haunted by happier times with Angela, Futh travels through Germany on foot. On his journey, a brief encounter with Ester; the keeper of the Hotel Hellhaus, has unforgettable consequences.
Written on these pages is a beautifully rendered story of two ordinary lives & how past memories influence the desires of the present. ( )

Unreadable. The story clunks along with little narrative pull and no entertainment in the language. ( )

Hats off to the judges, then, because it's superb – a peculiar exploration of boyhood trauma that does its quietly creepy work in fewer than 200 pages...Moore's straightforward prose sharpens the painful comedy of what seems a ceaseless sequence of humiliations. Futh sleeps alone on his wedding night; he later returns home to his wife in time to watch his best friend leave, zipping up his fly. He's in his 40s when his father smacks him in front of the fireplace during Christmas lunch at a neighbour's house..... The Lighthouse looks simple but isn't, refusing to unscramble what seems a bleak moral about the hazards of reproduction, in the widest sense. Small wonder that it stood up to the crash-testing of a prize jury's reading and rereading. One of the year's 12 best novels? I can believe it.

No Suprise that this quietly startling novel won column inches when it landed a spot on the Man Booker Prize longlist. After all, it’s a slender debut released by a tiny independent publisher. Don’t mistake The Lighthouse for an underdog, though. For starters, it’s far too assured.

 
Alison Moore’s novel takes the tale of an ordinary, forgettable man, and shows how terrible things happen in the most unassuming surroundings....It is this accumulation of the quotidian, in prose as tight as Magnus Mills’s, which lends Moore’s book its standout nature, and brings the novel to its ambiguous, thrilling end.
