Finalist for the 2019 Man Booker International Prize. A deeply satisfying thriller cum fairy tale, Drive Your Plow Over the Bones of the Dead is a provocative exploration of the murky borderland between sanity and madness, justice and tradition, and autonomy and fate. In a remote Polish village, Janina devotes the dark winter days to studying astrology, translating the poetry of William Blake, and taking care of the summer homes of wealthy Warsaw residents. Her reputation as a crank and a recluse is amplified by her not-so-secret preference for the company of animals over humans. Then a neighbor, Big Foot, turns up dead. Soon other bodies are discovered, in increasingly strange circumstances. As suspicions mount, Janina inserts herself into the investigation, certain that she knows whodunit. If only anyone would pay her mind . . .… (mais)

A quaint rural town, a few mysterious deaths, a little old lady discussing those deaths with friends over tea. Is it an Agatha Christie mystery? No, dear reader, this is something far weirder, and also a very fun read. This is Olga Tokarczuk's Drive Your Plow Over the Bones of the Dead.

Janina Duszejko is our first person narrator of this tale, which as other reviewers have noted, is part murder mystery and part fairy tale as told by the witch. Full of atmosphere, and quotes from the poetry of William Blake (from which the title derives), the tale is interspersed with Janina's thoughts on animal rights, astrology, the primacy of nature, the ghosts which haunt her boiler room, and most of all a subversive sense of humor.

The story is set in a small Polish village near the border with the Czech Republic. It's on "the Plateau", an area known for it's harsh winters. Few people chose to live there year 'round - just Janina and a couple of other neighbors. It's with the death of one of her neighbors that the book opens.

The setting of this book easily drew me in. I too live in a small, rural area, in my case close to the Canadian border, also known for it's harsh winters, and where few choose to live year 'round. Once I was drawn in I quickly realized what an imaginative, thought provoking, genre-bending ride this book is. It's a 2019 Nobel winner to boot.

This book was translated from the original Polish by Antonia Lloyd-Jones. The English version is both lyrical and straightforward.

If you like mysteries, thrillers, or atmospheric tales, and if you appreciate an off-beat sense of humor than you'll like this book. I give Drive Your Plow Over the Bones of the Dead Four Stars ⭐⭐⭐⭐ ( )

I won't say much about the plot, except that it's about an old Polish woman who's really into animal rights, astrology, and the poetry of William Blake. She's eccentric, the type of person who files a police report whenever she sees a dead animal in the forest. A person you'd dismiss as a crank.

For most of of the book, I wasn't sure whether I liked it as I didn't know where the story was going. It seemed to be about how difficult life is for elderly people as they become physically frail, isolated from society, and shunned for their way of thinking. I figured the main lesson would be that we should listen to them more and be more compassionate. That's not the most compelling theme, but I kept reading because of the good writing/translation, the fact that the author is a Nobel laureate, and, most of all, Beata Poźniak's narration. She lent a gradual pace and husky timbre to the adorably odd, occasionally profound protagonist.

The last couple of chapters, though, really brought it home. They were emotionally searing and morally challenging. I'll reflect on them for a long time. ( )

Well written revenge porn about hunters and poachers. ( )

Janina - she does hate her name, it doesn't suit her - lives on the plateau year-round and checks in on the houses of those who come up only in the summer. It's winter, and one of her two neighbors dies, apparently choking on the bone of a deer he was eating. Janina feels this deeply, particularly because she hates cruelty to animals, and when other mysterious deaths occur, she's convinced that the animals themselves are taking revenge, if only she can get someone to listen.

How to summarize such a book? It's been called a mystery, and there is a mystery, but it's more of a character study. Janina narrates, and we come to know her in all her eccentricities: loving animals more than humans, convinced that astrology has the answers to everything, and increasingly frustrated that her voice is not heard. As a reader, I found her sympathetic, even in all her oddities, and the denouement was less of a surprise than an inevitability. ( )

For me this was a nice read, nothing extraordinary. Language was beautiful and the theme of hypocrisy is something I feel important in the society. The plot, however, didn't get my sympathies... I felt for the main protagonist, loosing her dogs, which were her family, and no one being held responsible for it by the society. While she was not religious, she was spiritual and believed in astrology and the influence of nature on life. Although I have nothing against astrology, I found that this aspect was somewhat poorly represented in the book. It felt somehow forced and not even necessary. Well, perhaps one could argue that one of the themes was comparison of conventional (catholic) religion to the other, often overlooked forms, of spirituality, but still I think this spirituality would have worked better with more subtle tones and without astrology. I was also craving more of magical realism -vibes to the story and would have been more delighted if it wouldn't have turned out as a rather conventional revenge/murder story. ( )
