Guess, I'm not so stoic after all. There was this girl whose parents didn't want her even when she was alive; and the senile woman who was simply proud of her son, the Nazi boys who died in one war and woke up to instigate another; the priest in love with a dead girl and the family whose only fault was their murder; also, the artist who came back to find the woman who brought him back long before. And the final one of Jacob's.
These stories, and many others, of barely two-three pages, affected me in a way that the main story never did.
The fact that they didn't need useless, endless 'telling' of emotions, that they gave a provided a wider view of the tensions in the world, probably worked in their favor. As it turns out, sticking through the book paid off. As in, negative paid off, but not as adverse a negative as it was before.

As in, lessened negative. As in, ah- what the hell! Like, my interest was before and the last few hundred pages made it -4 or something. It's either the seditious baseness of my nature, or maybe the reader in me prefers action and locomotion, but the last few hundred pages pleased me.
Okay, maybe her grandchildren and the person at the end of that gun. The writing didn't work for me and consequently, Harold and Lucille never reached out to me. Go Set a Watchman. Harper Lee. Life After Life. Kate Atkinson. The Shining Girls. Lauren Beukes. The Winter People. Jennifer McMahon.

Overall rating 3. Yes No Thanks for your feedback! Well, the book is good, that's for sure, and a TV series based on it would be just perfect. As I read, I was actually picturing all the turns that the show could take from the little sub stories in The Returned. As you know form the synopsis, dead people were coming back to life.
Make that people who had been dead for over 60 years. Awesome, right? But what about the coming back of people we wouldn't want to come back? Like an abusive ex-husband Because the resurrection didn't have seem to discriminate. The Returned shows the world's reaction to this miracle for those happy with the returned , or phenomena for the angry or jealous ones.
In most of the reviews I've read so far, bloggers seem a little disappointed with the ending of The Returned, and I too, feel this way. I am completely satisfied with the explanation for the returned why people were coming back. Would you go to a place where you know some people are waiting to kill you? This is my issue with the ending. Sometimes, authors have scenes that make no sense at all. Besides this little issue with the ending, I wasn't a fan of Lucille's excessive recollections either.
I wanted the book to go faster but it went slow. Slow not in a bad way, though; Mott is quite an engaging writer, it's just that there were times when I felt like, "can we get to the point already?
The concept of The Returned is brilliant and the execution a real master piece. I am absolutely watching the show!
I want to leave you with a little question, though. If you were to live in The Returned, what would you do if your loved one is not coming back? Some loved ones are returning from death without any explanation. People listening to the news reports are unable to comprehend what is happening. Peter has moved on since the death of Tracy, his childhood sweetheart.
Married and now the father of a six year old, he learns that Tracy is one of the Returned. This is the story of a lost love and the decisions that must be made.
Is life what it appears to be? Why do we long for the days of our youth? This short story will leave the reader with questions about life, love and also death. Highly recommended. A short story of a lost loved one who returns unchanged. You can read the details in other reviews.
What do you do if the girl you love disappears and comes back 20 years later, but she hasn't aged? Can you start the relationship again when you're now old enough to be her father and have a family of your own? Can things be even remotely the same between you?
That's really "The Choice" that this book revolves around. I thought it was excellently written and I would list this as one of the top one hundred stories that I've downloaded. I'm going to read Jason's other two short stories.
I can see where there could be dozens of story lines to follow with this idea and I'm looking forward to reading the entire book when it comes out. As I understand it this is an excerpt short story from "The returned" which I have in line as my next book to read. Just thinking of the confusion of the returned and the returnee boggles my mind.
Doesn't the returned notice that people are older? What if the returned was murdered and shows up at the killer's door?
Evidently they can pop up in any country not just where they died. Anyway it will be interesting to read the book and see if there is any sort of explanation or will I just be treated to a series of "happenings"? I have been watching the TV show Redemption and saw these were written by the same author. They gave no clue as to where the show was going but were just more stories that could show up in the series.
I don't want to buy the novel the show was based on as i would spoil the ending so will have to wait until the series is over.The First follows Emily. He adds to it a bit of Malthusian limited-resources paranoia or, more probably, rightist xenophobia when the population of these Returned folks starts spiraling out of control and the government starts rounding them up into Gitmo-esque detention centers or, perhaps, like 's Japanese Internment camps.
What would you do or say if your loved one returned? Around the world, people's loved ones are returning from beyond, seeking only to reenter the lives they left behind. The religious issues are dealt with very competently.
