    FREE READ Ö Wickett's Remedy Wickett's RemedyFinished listening to this after a few road trips I enjoyed Bee Season much I think Goldberg bit off than she could chew with this one Her first novel was an intense study of a dysfunctional family and her focus and writing talent really shone Wickett's Remedy tried to be way too many things history social critiue epic experimental combination of fiction and primary sources The effect diluted the main character Lydia and the reader never really knows enough about her to care what happens to her much less the lesser characters In trying to master so many different styles and voices most of the characters come off as either inauthentic or in Lydia's case just bland and prissy She's supposed to have worked hard to transform herself but a few years behind th

    FREE READ Ö Wickett's Remedy Wickett's RemedyI thought this was absolutely charming The writing was intelligent and had depth yet wasn't too flowery The plot went uietly for a while and then things started to come together at the end I enjoyed hearing the comments of those who had passed as they were fiesty and very human Notice we never heard Lydia's comments I also enjoyed how the historical background made dry facts come alive

    FREE READ Ö Wickett's Remedy Wickett's RemedyI wish I could give this book a better review as I wanted to like it But the story was too slow to start the device of having the dead speak to the reader in margin notes was ultimately distracting and did not add to the narrative the interweaved story told of D soda and the meandering of its founder felt forced and the main character remained remote and unknown

    FREE READ Ö Wickett's Remedy Wickett's RemedyI liked the book better than the reviewer below I was very interested in the history of the flu epidemic and felt the author did a good job in bringing the period to life I also liked the margin comments by the dead—reminded me of the graveyard scene in Our Town They demonstrated how there are always many sides to a story depending on our perspective They added a bit of humor and a reminder not to take ourselves too seriously I uestion the reviewer

    FREE READ Ö Wickett's Remedy Wickett's RemedyThis book spent a number of years hovering near the top of my reading list but it kept getting bumped by other books until finally I just borrowed it from the library even though I was reading something else For some reason I thought this book would be about Lydia and Henry and the Remedy during the 1918 flu epidemic but not very far into the book it became obvious that the book would not be about that at all At first I was disappointed but the unexpected book was very good engrossin

    FREE READ Ö Wickett's Remedy Wickett's RemedyThis may be a two and a half stars for me Goldberg can write for sure and she's crafted an interesting evolving young woman in Lydia The details about Southie seem true to me; there are vivid scenes of an immigrant's life and Lydia's crossing to Washington Street where she wears a shirtwaist and works with other girls in a thriving department store The scene of the party on the landing just before her brother leaves for WWI is convincing and lively Also the story of Gallups Island where the government used volunteers in attempts at developing a vaccine for the raging 1918 epidemic well that's a story on it's own and one I was unfamiliar with The problem with this short novel is it attempts to do than it can As others have noted the m

    FREE READ Ö Wickett's Remedy Wickett's RemedyI grabbed this because I liked Bee Season well enough and it cost 3 and I had nothing to read I was well rewarded for my 3 gamble One thing that made the book extra resonant with me was that I started reading it just before I got a bad head cold so the whole time I was reading about the Spanish Influenza outbreak I was sick as well It was weird I'm not recommending contracting the flu before you read thoughThis novel isn't structured like most others; Goldberg uses margin notes to correct misremembrances real word don't know; don't care; you know what i mean of the protagonist The secondary plot is woven in through newspaper articles and o

    FREE READ Ö Wickett's Remedy Wickett's RemedyI was lukewarm for Myla Goldberg's first novel and the same was true for her second It's not that she's bad at writing It's that something about the form of her novels really rubs me the wrong way This one worked well when it was actually being a novel But all the little extra scenes that left the narrative were distracting and didn't add much Also the dead serving as a peanut gallery of sorts always tossing in their two cents on what actually happened similarly falls flat It's a shame because as I said she's not bad at writing Just maybe not at putting novels together Also the audiobook version of this is dreadful Goldberg reads herself and she is just fine during the normalnovel sections But the extra bits are strange the additional readers and voices are strange and all

    FREE READ Ö Wickett's Remedy Wickett's RemedyI nearly set this book aside because I found one of the main characters profoundly irritating but I stuck with it and I'm so glad I did Though I found the marginalia a bit precious at times I appreciated the skill in which Goldberg wove in multiple points of view And I enjoyed the way the lovely story was told in many ways by inference The chapters skip through time and include letters written in the characters' futures So between the story itself the marginal comments and the letters a complete lifetime is told even though the basic narrative covers only a few yearsAnd what a lovely story Love grief family social and ethnic history I read it over two days and it's one of those books that makes you sad at the end bec
