    One thought on “L'albero delle bugie”

    1. Frances Hardinge is one of my most treasured literary finds of the past few years. She is one of those writers that make me want to happily give the shout-outs to their books from the rooftops and endlessly blab about them to anyone who would listen. They have it all - the spark, the snark, the depth, the skill and everything else that makes me smile happily when I go to reread them for the third time in a year. Her books may be inexplicably classified under an umbrella of 'children's literature [...]

    2. ONE THOUSAND STARSI’ve made several false starts with this review because I don’t know what to write. How do I describe The Lie Tree?As a Victorian murder mystery?As a book about lies and truths and the things that are obvious and the things that are not?As a tale about filial loyalty?As a revenge story?As a look at the ways that women have been made invisible throughout history?As a feminist triumph?These are all truths. But they are partial truths because this book is not one thing or anot [...]

    3. Thanks goes to Netgalley for the ARC!1860, and all the true social horrors that the time can bring, can also be a time, in the right writer's hands, that can bring the greatest illumination upon all such subjects of a women's place in our day. Frances Hardinge is truly such a brilliant writer.I can honestly say without spoiling a thing that this novel does wonderful justice for women and one's self-worth. I think we could all learn from setting such a bad example, and never mind all the missteps [...]

    4. I don't read children's books very often, but the fact that this one won the overall Costa prize, backed up by a couple of positive friend reviews here, persuaded to make an exception. The basic premise of a plant that thrives on human lies takes some swallowing, but if you accept that, it is a terrific feminist subversion of the classic adventure story genre, and a very enjoyable read.

    5. Let me be frank--Shawn: As long as I can be Dean and Gus can be Sammy.Gus: Why do I always have to be Sammy?Shawn: Fine, he's Sammy. That makes you Joey Bishop. Is that what you really want? You want to be Joey Bishop?Let's start over.Let me be honest--The Lie Tree is a perfect example of why I stopped auto-buying authors. I loved Fly by Night (my review), sought out the hardcover and added it to my library. The Lie Tree shares many of the same roots--but grows them in a very different way, emer [...]

    7. #YoungAdult #GothicHorrorThis was my local book club read for last month. Very different to my normal read, very well written but maybe slightly slow in places for my tastes. My book club group of about ten ladies were split on their opinion with half really enjoying and half having the same opinion as myself. It offered us ladies lots of discussion on the equality of woman, the narrative style and the irony depicted at the end and for those elements alone this was a great choice for our monthly [...]

    8. There was a hunger in her, and girls were not supposed to be hungry. They were supposed to nibble sparingly at table, and their minds were supposed to be satisfied with a slim diet too. The Lie Tree is set in Victorian era England, where 14 year old Faith and her family have recently left Kent for the small island of Vane. Faith's father, Reverend Erasmus Sunderly, is a renowned naturalist, and the family is ostensibly accompanying him on a trip to oversee the excavation of some usual fossils di [...]

    9. * I was sent this for free from the publisher in exchange for a review *So, I finally got around to reading some of Hardinge's work, and it was about time too. For months I've been planning to buy this one and read it, so when the publisher offered me this stunning illustrated edition of course I said yes please happily. I already knew that I would love the art if nothing else because Chris Riddell is an excellent illustrator so no surprises there, however, I also found myself really liking the [...]

    11. Review posted on Fafa's Book Corner !Beware spoilers ahead!DNF I heard about this book through a GR friend's review. It sounded interesting and I was happy to see that it was coming in my library. Unfortunately I didn't like.The book begins with Faith's family traveling. Faith's little brother asks why they are traveling and their mother says that it's for their father's work. When her brother mentions that they never needed to come for their father's traveling. Their mother responds that this i [...]

    13. I don't know how to review this book, as I've literally never read anything quite like it before. It is truly an original and a masterpiece and deserves every INCH of praise it's been getting. It is dark and complex and beautiful and compelling and sad and scary and funny and imaginative anddn you tell I loved it? It's also a feminist triumph! Just. Read. It.

    14. I don't care what your book taste is - if you don't read this one, you're depriving yourself. Think secret letters, scandal, dark caves, the Enlightenment, family loyalty/betrayal, and hallucinogens. Engrossing, intricate, atmospheric, moving, and entertaining as hell. For me, its only flaw is that it ended.

    15. Copy received courtesy of NetGalleyThe Lie Tree is set in the UK ten years after Darwin’s Origin of Species was published. Faith is a young teen fiercely interested in the natural sciences, an interest she shares with her famous father, who is also an Anglican minister. When I saw that, I hailed it with inner relief, thinking that finally here would be a book that wrestles with the changing of a paradigm, without going down the usual over-simplification trail by making religious faith and scie [...]

    16. A wonderfully intricate story of community, family, truth and lies done as a Victorian murder mystery/dark fantasy.Faith Sunderly and her family have moved to the small island of Vane as a refuge from the society gossip around her disgraced father. The people of the island initially welcome them, but fairly quickly the rumors about her father travel even to remote Vane and the family is again in disgrace. Faith's father is found dead soon after, an apparent suicide. Only Faith believes otherwise [...]

    17. Drvo laži ima tri bitna aspekta:- viktorijanski krimić- fantastika s malim otklonom ka hororu- feminizam.Krimić je tu zapravo najgore prošao jer: (view spoiler)[sam pogodila ko će biti ubica i pre ubistva. Jer je to bila JEDINA ličnost u celom romanu, uključujući junakinju, koja je kompetentno i odgovorno radila svoj posao i još se ponašala humano. (hide spoiler)] Viktorijanština je, naprotiv, odrađena verodostojno i uz lepo poznavanje nekih bizarnijih istorijskih momenata (i bar jed [...]

    18. The Lie Tree is the third title I have read by British author Frances Hardinge and I am as struck with it as I was by the other two.But first, the premise.Faith and her family move to an unnamed island under the shadow of a scandal that accompanies her father’s anthropological findings. Rumours abound that the nephilim bones he discovered are fake and constructed by human, rather than divine, devices. Faith, despite never getting any encouragement to do so, idolizes her father. Even though all [...]

    19. Find this and other Reviews at In Tori LexActual Rating 3.5I usually avoid historical fiction because I know it's a genre that's hard for me to enjoy. But after reading many four starred ratings of this on , I decided to take a chance. While reading the first 35% of the book I was regretting that decision and was tempted to stop reading because it started off very slow. However since I had already committed to giving it a try, I powered through and was able to immerse myself in and enjoy the res [...]

    20. Faith Sunderly, Sally Lockhart, and Tiffany Aching walk into a bar.There's no punchline here, but wouldn't you just love to sit down and buy them all a drink?-------This was really great, and I definitely highly recommend it. Unfortunately, it was spoiled ever so slightly by the fact that halfway through I came up with the GREATEST POSSIBLE TWIST for the ending, and therefore found myself mildly disappointed by what actually happened. I mean, I really like what the twist actually was, and I feel [...]

    21. 4.5 stars that I'm rounding down. Things you should know about this book - it's beautifully written and almost claustrophobic in its depiction of the narrow social sphere available to 19th century women; it is almost more of a historical novel than speculative fiction; and it is so so so so slow in the first half. (This is why I rounded down). All of a sudden, though, about halfway through, the slow burn suddenly ignites and oh boy I could not put this down.

    22. This is a great book! Hardinge's prose is exquisite, and she does an excellent job of building a really oppressive and claustrophobic gothic atmosphere, perfect for the Victorian era in which the story is set. The Lie Tree for me was primarily a historical novel but with fantastical elements, and I thought the two styles were really well brought together. This is the first Hardinge I have read, but I will definitely be reading more of her work.

    23. This book was brilliant paced, beautifully written and incredibly original. The story is set in the nineteenth century and follows Faith whose father, a reverend recently caught up in a scandal after his fossil finds are discovered to be fakes, is found dead under rather suspicious circumstances. His murder seems to be related to a mysterious plant he picked up while in China, that he, rather unoriginally by the standards of this novel, names the Lie Tree. The general gist is that if a person wh [...]

    24. The Lie Tree is a ‘fantastic’ tale, in the true sense of the word. It is imaginative, extraordinary, dark and at times magical. I’m not sure I’ve ever read anything quite like it.This is a historical novel that focuses on a teenage girl called Faith, her challenging relationship with her parents, and her struggle to be taken seriously as an intelligent young woman in a society that thinks women should be seen and not heard, and shouldn’t worry their tiny little brains with intellectual [...]

    25. Oh, this is breaking my heart a little, as I really never expected to say that a book by Frances Hardinge just didn't work for me. It happens, almost has to happen, with any favourite author if they write enough books, but intellectual understanding doesn't necessarily make it easier to deal with when it does. I'm going to try to sort out why this one didn't work for me, despite the voice in my head which is saying what I actually feel - that the core conceit could never have worked - but saying [...]

    26. This was a fine book for a YA read , I was l ft satisfied by the ending and at the same time I learned a little bit more about female struggle in the sciences in the late 19th century . The tree which is the main point of the book doesn't make its entrance till the middle of the book so be ready for a slow beginning .i did really like the use of said tree in the book, I can honestly say I have never read something like it . Not a perfect book, but a good book.
