Very tragic. Made one feel for the main character, that maybe she wasn't as bad as everybody thought. ( )
  DAVIDGOTTS | Mar 31, 2021 |
4.75*
This book was so close to a 5* for me, but didn't quite make it. After finishing this book and reading a little about the author, I was really surprised that this was her first book. Her writing is beautiful and it was quite obvious that she spent quite a bit of time researching the historical evidence behind this story. Her descriptions and the places and the characters is so rich that I felt like I was there with them.

I felt so connected to a number of the characters as well which ended up being what helped me to push through the first pages or so. Even though I knew how the book is going to end (more or less), I was still rooting for Agnes and hoping certain things would change.

With all these joys in mind, there were a few things that made this book fall just short of the 5*. I'm not sure why, but something about the beginning felt slow for me. Somewhere right around the page mark was where I started to find myself truly invested and drawn into the story. It may perhaps be that there were so many new and different names of people and places that I struggled through those parts. It could also be that some parts felt very dense with information - useful and necessary information, but dense nonetheless. Secondly, there were a few times that I found the POV changes to be slightly confusing. We would start hearing Agnes' first hand account to Toti of events, then suddenly we would switch to Agnes remembering events, but not sharing all of them. This switching had me confused at a few different places and I was left wondering whether she was sharing information aloud or if she was just remembering the events.

These few things had me slightly distracted or annoyed at times, but overall I flew through this book and loved the way in which Hannah Kent wove this story together. ( )

I loved this book. I enjoyed the points-of-view, the third and first person narration, the character development - everything about it. The writing is gorgeous. This is going on my "keep forever" shelf, and will be read again! ( )

An excellent book.
Really atmospheric, it layers up the emotion and also has a gripping realism.
It's clear how it's going to end from the very first page but it still manages to be heartbreaking. ( )

Moving. Well written. ( )

One of the best “Scandinavian” crime novels I have read, Burial Rites is the work of an Australian who visited Iceland on a cultural exchange.

The novel isn't seamless—Ms. Kent disrupts its rhythms by awkwardly switching between an omniscient narrator and Agnes's first-person point of view. But it convincingly animates Agnes, who feels "knifed to the hilt with fate," showing her headstrong humanity and heart-wrenching thirst for life. At one point she recalls seeing two icebergs grinding together off the northern shore, the friction from their exposed boulders causing gathered driftwood to go up in flames. At her best, Ms. Kent achieves a similar eerie force in this story of passion in a frozen place.

There are other stylistic problems. Some dialogue that’s meant to seem elevated and of its time simply sounds unidiomatic: “I was worried of as much”; “The only recourse to her absolution would be through prayer.” There’s prefab phrasing — “my heart throbbed,” “she said breathlessly,” “overcome with relief” — and descriptive clichés, including a sky that’s “bright, bright blue, so bright you could weep.”

A remarkable story of the last case of capital punishment recorded in Iceland, Burial Rites is the extraordinary debut novel by Australian author Hannah Kent.
adicionado por hf22 | editarDaily Express (London), Hannah Britt (Sep 13, 2013)
 
Burial Rites is a debut of rare sophistication and beauty – a simple but moving story, meticulously researched and hauntingly told.

His hair is as red as before, as red as the midnight sun. It looks as though his locks have soaked up the light as a skein of wool suffers the dye.
"Do you know the right name for a flock of ravens?"
Tóti shook his head.
"A conspiracy, Reverend. A conspiracy."
A tight fear, like a fishing line, hooked upon something that must, inevitably, be dragged from the depths.
Yes, I am quite alone, and a tremble of exhilaration passes along my skin, like the tremor on the surface of a pot of water about to boil.
At Hvammur, during the trial, they plucked at my words like birds. Dreadful birds, dressing in red with breasts of silver buttons, and cocked heads and sharp mouths, looking for guilt like berries on a bush.
