The Silent WifeSinopseJodi Brett e Todd Gilbert vivem juntos há vinte e dois anos num confortável apartamento em Chicago com vista para o lago Os dias decorrem numa tranuilidade aparente à medida ue a sua relação se vai lentamente consumindo Até ao dia em ue Jodi fica a sa. this book has been compared to gone girl but that is a somewhat flawed n' lazy comparison however if your response to that book was any of the following Had a difficult time getting through this book didn't really care for the characters I hate the general misanthropy that infests most of modern fiction I prefer a book with at least one sympathetic character and I couldn't stand any of these people unlikable people doing unlikable things There wasn't a character you could even try to likeyou probably won't like this book the above responses are the kinds of responses that frustrate me when i read them no one is asking for you to become friends with these characters they aren't there for you to like me and catherine earnshaw would probably not get along over drinks but the strength of that character as written is undeniable characters exist as participants in a story you are free to judge them like or dislike them but to dismiss the antihero in literature is to deprive yourself of about half of the world's published textsthe comparisons between these books pretty much begin and end with the observation that this is a novel told in alternating narratives of a couple who have been together a long time who together have a perfectly psychologically symbiotic but ultimately toxic relationship but individually arenot the best peoplebut nothing else is really sticking comparison wise the writing in this one is far detached there is a dreamlike uality to it and while the amy of gg is relentless and driven here we have a woman in stubborn denial and a man who is acted upon than acting okay that last part might be similarthis is a story about the complicity of complacency as pat and faux etic as that sounds we have a childless couple who met fittingly when they were involved in a car crash together and have been in a common law marriage for twenty years he is a serial philanderer she is a practiced conflict avoider and turn a blind eye er and they have co existed this way for twenty years he gets to sleep around and still come home to a spotless house and a gourmet meal she gets to lead a life with all the fine things she covets and gets to feel useful in taking care of a man who needs to be taken care of which is frustrating no matter who the woman is but in this case we have a woman with multiple degrees who is a practicing therapist heal thyself noshe does spend a lot of time in her head they both do and although they seem to have a certain degree of self awareness they also both have a lot of self delusion and tunnel vision This is not her fault None of this is her fault She did her best to make it work with Todd She was tolerant understanding and forgiving She was not grasping or possessive Unlike the women you see on the Dr Phil show who fall to pieces when the randy fellow happens to stray Boo hoo Women the world over have been putting up with far worse for centuries Soul mates is a nice idea but rarely borne out in practice Marriage coaches like Dr Phil raise the bar too high teach women to expect too much and end up breeding discontent We live alone in our cluttered psyches possessed by our entrenched beliefs our fatuous desires our endless contradictions and like it or not we have to put up with this in one another Do you want your man to be a man or do you want to turn him into a pussy Don't think you can have it both ways She did not make that mistake with Todd She gave him plenty of space He had nothing to complain about This is not her faultthis is the price she is paying for her twenty year indulgence of todd's behavior because with the twenty year inch he has been given he has taken a county his new girlfriend half his age and the daughter of his oldest friend has become pregnant and is demanding marriage and todd is letting himself get talked into it in his panting sex blindedness and his desire not for a child but for an heir; a desire stubbornly refused by jodi all these yearsbut this new relationship is unfulfilling natasha is much younger much demanding messy judgmental dismissive critical bossy everything that jodi is not and todd's fatal mistake is not in impregnating another woman or even leaving jodi both of which she has accepted overcome and developed solutions for and not for his attempts to have it all to continue his sexual relationship with jodi despite his pregnant fiancée at home his mistake is in rocking the boat threatening the comfort of the domestic charade jodi has so carefully constructed when he tries to have her evicted from their condo you do not mess with a domestic goddess' place of business their unspoken marital arrangement has always hinged on the rule that you do not bring that life into this life and the first time he does there are repercussions and she unsheathes her claws but this bigger transgression is going to leave deeper scratchesbecause illinois has no common law recognition jodi has no rights despite her years of service and her religiously maintained two patients a day practice is not nearly enough to support the lifestyle to which she has become accustomed and jodi is absolutely devoted to routine At forty five Jodi still sees herself as a young woman She does not have her eye on the future but lives very much in the moment keeping her focus on the everyday She assumes without having thought about it that things will go on indefinitely in their imperfect yet entirely acceptable wayand our girl is gonna protect that routine with all she's gottodd is a bizarre study he is pure self indulgence The indwelling presence was strong in him in his younger years in his childhood as he learned to distinguish himself from his parents when he broke free and discovered the world at large the exhilaration of it and then as he found his feet in business and felt his power and his blamelessness and when he first encountered Jodi and through her the substance of communion He's a lover in love with the world and when he's in form the world gives back It's how he wants to live every minute of every day He wants it all unwrapped He wants to look the barefaced mystery in the eye be a participant immersed not an observer a packager a regretterThis is not the way some people see it Jodi for one But you can't live your life by other people's rules he does not understand why jodi is caught off balance by his canceling of her credit cards or by his attempts to evict her and while he is very self involved his self awareness has its limits Seated on his stool after such a long absence he succumbs to a tender devotion a reverence for this welcoming sanctuary with its uaint accoutrements and rituals its shakers and strainers goblets flutes and snifters pickled onions and lemon twists distinctive paper coasters a different one for every drink its buzzing congregation and the secular priest behind the bar performing the time honored rites It makes him think of the church he used to attend with his mother who raised him Roman Catholic or tried to He never could get his head around the old man in the sky but he was smitten from the start with the glamour and mystiue of it; the solemn processions colorful robes smoking censer chanting and singingHe connected with the mystery and the rapture and now he inhibits the bar at the Drake in much the same wayhe has enough awareness to make the connection between the tokens of spirituality to the ritual of the bar but he doesn't take it that one step further the things he appreciates and needs in his relationships are the very same domestic rituals and natasha cannot provide them for him he needs the drink waiting for him at home the folded newspaper the elaborate meal he needs the walking of the dog and the view from his castle and without that he falters his faltering comes in the shape of stasis of being bullied by natasha into things he doesn't really want to do into falling into old habits when he feels cornered into letting his life live him and not taking a stand and waiting until the day he moves out to tell jodi he is leaving and being baffled by her reaction he becomes hesitant and malleableand the prey that hesitates is the prey that gets eatenthe gg comparison is a little misleading the synopsis is a little misleading but all in all i found this book fascinating and frustrating and thought provoking which is all a book should ever be expected to docome to my blog
