Review Corner

"DrippingWords, otherwise known as Caitlan, is a gorgeous soul with a knack for bringing real life into the bulk of her poetry. With her hands in almost every aspect of the dA community in general--from a lovely suggestion on the notes system to book covers and group participation--Caitlan is bound to steal your heart with her writing and keep you coming back for her personality. She's also just started putting up her news article, Let's Talk Writing, again, featuring some of the most prominent names in the literature community. You're sure to fall in love with DrippingWords gallery, so go give it a thorough look-through!"

"Caitlan (DrippingWords), never ever stop writing. Every single time I open up one of your new uploads I just know I'll be blown away by your imagery, or the pure heartache in your words. You'll never know how much trouble I had picking out that one single piece of yours to feature, that's how great you are. Like I said before, if I could favourite you I would, and so should many, many others."

"DrippingWords has been a constant supporter of a lot of initiatives within the community, most notably the now defunct DailyLitDeviations and the newly created DailyLitRecognition. I don't even know how many years she's been dedicated to helping the crew there bring great literature to the forefront, but I do know that I enjoyed working with her when I was helping over there. She's patient, intelligent, helpful, and full of great ideas. This community needs a lot more people who are willing to be the helpers, in my opinion. We could all take a leaf out of Cait's book."

"DrippingWords, Caitlan, I must say I'm thrilled you're back and writing again. You are a truly wonderful person, an absolutely fantastic asset to this community and an inspiration to me in all facets of my deviantART life. Please, please don't ever stop being your amazing self because you inspire more than you know and I love you. :heart:"

CRLiterature Book Club Journal Header by inknalcohol

Welcome back, readers! It's time for the mid-month discussion, where we will be asking questions and talking about the book up to the end of Chapter 8.

Question 1

Why doesn't the main character have a name? Was this a purposeful strategy employed by the author? And to what purpose? How do you feel about it? Is it an effective way to get you to relate? Did you even notice at all? (I didn't.)

Question 2

Our narrator has returned to his home town for a funeral (we don't know whose). Do you think that framing his childhood story with a funeral gives this story a pessimistic outlook, rather than an optimistic one?

The Ocean at the End of the Lane by 6vedik The Ocean at the End of the Lane by lucidflux The ocean at the end of the lane by sunilk83 You don't own nuffink, you don't. by Checanty

Question 3

It's easy to think of the Hempstocks as the "triple goddess" (the Maiden, the Mother, and the Crone) of popular mythology. In what ways do they conform to those roles? In what ways are they different? Here’s an interesting hook for you: it’s the maiden that saves the boy, not the mother or the crone, who should be the nominal protectors. Even in the context of the supernatural saviors, the cold practicality of the adult would let him go, while it’s the child who saves the child. Why?

Question 4

On page 18, the narrator tells us that his father often burnt their toast and always ate it with apparent relish. He also tells us that later in life, his father admitted that he had never actually liked burnt toast, but ate it to avoid waste, and that his father's confession made the narrator's entire childhood feel like a lie: 'it was as if one of the pillars of belief that my world had been built upon had crumbled into dry sand.' Are there any beliefs from your own childhood that you discovered to be false?


Here's a fun activity that everyone can do, regardless of artistic talent: draw your favorite scene from the book so far using Muro in the comments! Don't worry, nothing you can draw will look as terrible as mine will.


I AM SO GLAD YOU ARE HERE TO PARTICIPATE IN BOOK CLUB! And so is the rest of CRLiterature! And because we want you to particpate, every month Book Club offers up prizes for the top participants. To win prizes, comment thoughtfully, write critical reviews and create fan art! (You can note us links to your reviews and fan art.)  I will be keeping track of who says/does what and PinkyMcCoversong will send one of the prizes to the monthly winner, and one of the prizes will be put in the "prize bucket" to go to the top participant for the first 6 months of 2015.

This month, thanks to Melville House Books, we've got ARC's (advanced reader copies) of The Visitors by Simon Sylvester. You'll get to read it before it comes out officially!

Thank you guys! Can't wait to see what you have to say! Keep an eye on the Book Club Calender for updates about our next books!

1 deviant said Have you been participating in CRLiterature's Book Club?
1 deviant said Oh, you want the prizes?
No deviants said You don't LIKE to read, you say?
No deviants said Well, darn, I guess I'll have to keep the prizes for myself then.
No deviants said Then participate!
No deviants said Yup, that's the only way you'll be entered to win some spiffy things EVERY month!
No deviants said That's right! New prizes each month!
No deviants said So, what are you waiting for?
