Chimes of a Lost Cathedral The Revolution of Marina M #2

REVIEW ☆ ISHOPPE.CO.UK Ð Janet Fitch

Loyalty and loss of power vs helplessness of adulthood and how it affects those who are forced to grow up too soon As before Marina takes on passionate lovers and enemies sometimes the same person including the brilliant Russian poets who inspired her before her world fell apart I loved how Marina so often chooses the hard path hewing to her inner North Star She learns to trust her instincts and be wary of her heart which sometimes yearns for people not worth her love and trust I loved the for people not worth her love and trust I loved the of this series Revolution of Marina M so much that as soon as I finished I went back to re read the first section I wanted to experience intriguing characters Kolya Varvara Marina s mom at their introduction and reconsider the full arc of their changed lives I did the same with Chimes I got an early review copy devoured it in a few days then I missed living in that fascinating world So I flipped back to page one to re read key scenes Now I find myself imagining where this courageous and resourceful young woman goes next I would love to see Marina moving through the fast changing world of that era a world where wars and technology collided where Marina s capacity for love and her survival skills might be tested even Appropriately enough for a novel set in Russia this book and its predecessor constitute a huge and sweeping saga This volume takes place in 1919 through 1921 and we follow Marina through this extremely difficult time in Russian history as first the revolution is threatened by the follow Marina through this extremely difficult time in Russian history as first the revolution is threatened by the and outside forces and then the Bolsheviks consolidate their own power and undermine much of what Marina hoped the revolution would accomplish I knew nothing about the Kronstadt Revolt by the sailors of the Baltic Fleet in 1921 and this part of the book broke my heart as did the plight of all the orphaned children on the edge of starvation as famine swept the country largely due to Bolshevik policy As an aspiring poet Marina associates with the intelligentsia in St Petersburg under attack from the new government because some of them see and want to write the truth about what s going on so true of dictatorial regimes now as in the past I loved the poetry that s scattered throughout the book and now know many names of Russian poets than I ever did before On the negative side I wasn t so interested in the convolutions of Marina s love affairs and thought the book could have been edited to less than 734 pages This is the second volume of the story begun in The Revolution of Marina M one of my favorite books of 2017 I loved both books so much What Janet Fitch has done in these books is to show the Russian Revolution of 1917 and the first few years of Russian communism disaster and terror through the life of an impetuous passionate i The concluding volume of the story that began with The Revolution of Marina M Chimes of A Lost Cathedral takes up the saga of a young poet and her ourney through the Russian Revolution If Marina s coming of age amid the chaos of the times is the subject of the first novel when the Revolution promised many things to many people Chimes of A Lost Cathedral is the playing out of her decisions the truths Marina has learned and the mistakes she has made and the self she has become as a woman and as a poet as the revolution shows its true direction for the future Russian novels formed my idea of what a novel should be intense dramatic and willing to confront the big issues I majored in history with Russia as my focus Russian is my language Those who know me weren t surprised that I would write a Russian sagaI m especially fascinated with the Revolution a time of high idealism and experimentation with often dire conseuences no clear good guys vs bad guys There were many sides and every aspect of life changed very rapidly And my protagonist Marina is the kind of passionate person who plunges into situations where angels fear to tread I feel so sad to say goodbye to herThe novel is about love and revolution poetry and politics and the survival of the soul from the height of the Russian Civil war in 1919 to the end of the Revolution in 1921 Ani Kokobobo called it Brillianta world of furious beauty sprawling majestic landscapes and erotically charged and traumatic encounters with life and love hanging in the balance womanhoIf you re interested in seeing some of the many wonderful books I used in my research check out the Extras on my website s MarinaChimes page.

F communism under the Bolsheviks as the sound of is wiped away we get a Russia is away We get a and detailed insight into the poeticliterary world of the years immediately following the Russian revolution as well as as physical difficulties of life during that time Of course Marina remains Marina from The Revolution of Marina M and she continues to make frustrating decisions often as a result of passion or unreasonable expectations However in Chimes we see her develop not only as an amazing poet but also into a fully thoughtful adult as she deals with unbearable tragedy and sadness Janet Fitch s writing is outstanding If you have any interest in the Russian revolution or Catherine the Great just in reading incredibly well done historical fiction I recommend both The Revolution of Marina M and Chimes of Lost Cathedral It pains me not to be able to give this a better rating but alas no And we llust blame me for say not being up to the challenge as a reader how s that Because I love Janet Fitch I do I think she is a brilliant writer I follow her on twitter for god s sake haha It s obvious she did her homework here and is a passionate Russophile is that a word as far as the Russian history and the many iterations of St Petersburg go But It s The Complete Tales of Winnie-The-Pooh just that I m a typical self centered American and I only care this much about the Russian revolution and I only care the same amount about Russian literature If both of those things are YOUR things then hurray have I got a book for youNow I could have blah blah blahed my way through all that Russer stuff only I kind of hated the main character Marina Makarova and had a hard time feeling any sympathy empathy interest in her or what would next befall the young Russian beauty And there were a lot of things that happened to our heroine both of her own creation and otherwise In fact okay so I couldn t identify with the main character big deal Then give me a secondary character to root for give me a plot line to hold on to but nope ALL the characters were horrible in one way or another and thereust weren t any redeeming ualities therein In fact none were fleshed out in the slightest and nobody main character included came alive for me Except for maybe the side character of Arkady von Principe not sure if that s his name I don t have the book handy He was flawed and horrible in the darkest most corrupt and interesting ways but he was dealt with in this second installment in the briefest most unbelievable way imaginable that one couldn t help feeling a bit cheated of his dastardliness It was anticlimactic at best That is probably the biggest complaint I have For such a long book 2 whole 700 page tomes and all the details details details it still somehow seemed superficial and never got down to the nitty and the gritty the innermost workings of the characters psyches You know the interesting stuff How can that be The plot was or less the main character in eual portions getting her ass handed to her or Tiny Yarn Animals just totally lucking out in unbelievable ways You knowust happening to be at the exact right place at the exact right time for some man from her past to show up and profess his undying love and devotion to her even though he hasn t seen or communicated with her during their time apart Even though now she s an old hag of 20 who hasn t had a decent meal not to mention a BATH in the last 6 months and Making An Elephant just literally got finished with poop patrol Heust happens to be there exactly at the right moment to get her out of a My, Oh My--A Butterfly! jam Convenient Sorry Iust couldn t buy into it So like I said it s Children of Dune just me I somehow failed this history lesson and examination of the Russian revolution and it s aftermath on Russian society I hated The Brothers Karamazov DNF and I m pretty sure I rated Anna Karenina 3 stars It s me Maybe you ll have a enjoyable time of it I m sorry Janet Fitch don t be mad I ll still read anything you write Iust hope the next one is not about Russia Chimes is one of those addictive novels you keep reading when you re supposed to be sleeping eating working etc Chimes begins where The Revolution of Marina M ended with Marina 100% on her own in a frightening and shattered new world one in which she must learn to survive against enormous odds I won t spoil the dozens of shocking twists for future readers so I ll ust say that what Marina experiences in Chimes and how she grows into a woman goes far beyond the first book It s a powerful exploration of love and. D She finds new strength and self reliance to fortify her in her sojourn and to prepare her for the hardships and dilemmas still to comeWhen she finally returns to Petrograd the city almost unrecognizable after two years of revolution the haunted half emptied starving Capital of Once Had Been she finds the streets teeming with homeless children victims of war Now fully a woman she takes on the challenge of caring for these Civil War orphans until they become th. .
This is the kind of book that is so absorbing and transformative that when you finish it feels like there s no point in reading another What could possibly match up Of course something will eventually but books like this are few and far between and maybe that s a good thing I don t know if my soul could take itIt helps obviously to read this book s predecessor The Revolution of Marina M as this picks up right where it left off Marina came so far in three short years in Revolution and she will go even further emotionally intellectually and uite literally In The Following Three It S Heartbreak the following three It s heartbreak death but small moments of love and happiness and hope that Marina struggles to cling to amidst all the destructionMarina is so rich I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review Spending time with the main character of this book was like reuniting and spending time with an old frienda lot of time Because at 730 pages Chimes of a Lost Cathedral took me forever to finish ust like its predecessor 2017 s The Revolution of Marina M which was 816 pages It s hard not to use words like sweeping epic to describe this tome spanning from the spring of 1919 to the fall of 1921 during the Russian Civil War The stories relationships and Marina s persistence kept me 1921 during the Russian Civil War The stories relationships and Marina s persistence kept me but I will be honest that a lot of the political clashes and beliefs were hard for me to decipher If you ve read The Revolution of Marina M you will also understand that Fitch will gut you with her descriptions of humanity s darkness so much so that I needed to step away from the story and have a drink after a devastating event that occurred ust before the book s halfway point The novel opens with 19 year old pregnant Marina Makarova traveling through the Russian countryside searching for a place to give birth to her child and follows her on her return to Petrograd which is mostly deserted yet teeming with orphans Now fully a woman she takes on the challenge of caring for these Civil War orphans until they become the tool of tragedy from an unexpected direction But despite the ordeal of war and revolution betrayal and privation and unimaginable loss Marina at last emerges as the poet she was always meant to be I would recommend this novel and The Revolution of Marina M to lovers of Russian history the Romanov family and Cherise Wolas novel The Resurrection of Joan Ashby Oh Marina What a tragedy But at the same time what a complex fascinating and glorious life Any single moment of her existence might prove difficult than most of us could handle and indeed there are some points at which she doubts whether she can persevere but march on she does and we her audience are the better for it In some ways this felt like the Forrest Gump of the Russian Revolution That s not to suggest that Marina is in any way simple minded uite the contrary but through her daily activities her trials and triumphs we witness and understand the realities of this age of world history Here she is riding on a propaganda train here she is rubbing elbows with Blok at the House of Arts here she is in a Cheka prison We see the brutality of soldiers as they demand the grain that Marina and her midwife s small community has toiled to harvest We understand the multiple sides struggling for control and influence in the power vacuum the war creates This wasn t always the most enjoyable reading experience I m thinking of one especially difficult seuence midway through this book but the writing is beautiful the story is compelling and Marina is the sort of enduring hero we should all strive to be As is usually the case with Janet Fitch s works the story was gripping from beginning to end The author has such a way with words that even when I can t relate to the story I still need to stop every so often to appreciate the way something is so beautifully phrased I can t deal with the protagonist though I love her and I hate her I feel bad for her sometimes and her deci What a wonderful and important book There are so many good novels about the Russian revolution but in Chimes of a Lost Cathedral Janet Fitch deals masterfully with the years immediately following the revolution of which very little is written These were the years of civil war and famine These were the years when poetry art and independent thinking were erased from Russia by the Bolsheviks Through our heroine Marina we see the devastating effects The story of THE REVOLUTION OF MARINA M continues in bestselling author Janet Fitch's sweeping epic about a young woman's coming into her own against the backdrop of the Russian Revolution After the events of The Revolution of Marina M the young Marina Makarova finds herself on her own amid the devastation of the Russian Civil War pregnant and adrift in the Russian countryside forced onto her own resourcefulness to find a place to wait out the birth of her chil. ,
