Lauren Groff: Fates and Furies Audio Book Summary
Lauren Groff won the book of the year title in the USA. His third novel Fates and Furies is a masterpiece. A novel is more than just sales, in many cases the book “fashion” and that is a sales leader brings nothing really to the reader. It is not even respectable in content, however everyone seems interested. But this is not the case, many celebrities recommend it, critics acclaim it, we see characters of the stature of Sarah Jessica Parker or Miranda July who take selfies where the cover of the book appears.
This book really had a great reception was critically acclaimed, and discuss the qualities of the book. The Wall Street Journal certified that it became a sales leader on the year-end charts. President Barack Obama himself said in an interview that he is one of the best he has read and one of his favorites throughout 2015, Fates and Furies won a very special place in 2015. Their high sales prove it.
Just as in Gone Girl, this new book Fates and Furies touches on the subject of a marriage in which both sides have found points of view, not only have a different point of cist in their respective roles as a couple, but the moment in Which takes place its narration in history, is completely different. It is easily comparable, as if both the husband and his wife, each were immersed in a completely different universe, in two completely different books, even in different narrative genres. One quite light with a homey touch, and the other completely dark and gothic. The original idea of the author was to publish two books, two different environments that coexist and be tolerated, but do not complement one another.
The protagonists are Lotto and Mathilde Satterwhite, Lotto comes from a stable and well-to-do family, practically most of his life has been happy, his wife on the other hand alone he knows details that let him see that he has a dark and murky past. Lotto tells us his version, the version of life with his wife, that happens in the first place of the book, with respect to the second is Mathilde who gives his version, a dark past a hilarious tragedy that can only fight with force Of unwavering will, many misfortunes are those that the woman of Lotto must overcome. It is in this part that reveals that much of Lotto’s perception of her happy and homelike life are a product of Mathilde’s fallacies and tricks, she actually loves him, but in the first instance that was not the reason why He married him.
This book invites the reflection of a life in a couple where two people who live together can get to know very little really, is a subject nevertheless very frequent and real in the life of many people, perhaps that is the reason of its resounding success.
