March 2021 Fiction Club Review: The Nutshell

The month of March also marked the arrival of the TTP Book Club. After reading The Nutshell, members met together for a brief discussion about the book!

TTP March Book Pick – The Nutshell

The Nutshell

Courtesy of Goodreads,

Nutshell is a classic story of murder and deceit, told by a narrator with a perspective and voice unlike any in recent literature – told from a child’s perspective!

A bravura performance, it is the finest recent work from a true master. To be bound in a nutshell, see the world in two inches of ivory, in a grain of sand. Why not, when all of literature, all of art, of human endeavour, is just a speck in the universe of possible things.

Our Thoughts on the Book

I loved the book from the start till the end. The words used to narrate the story kept me hooked! This was a great read for the month!

Nutshell was something exceptional which I had never tried before. At first, I thought about how McEwan is planning to carry out the perception but it was amazing. At the end of the story, it pulled my interest down a bit. Anyway, it has a rhetorical ending, so it is a subjective matter. Writing is spectacular, the way words are pulled together is so so elegant. However, there are a few things that upset me a bit during the read.

This book promises to be as amazing a concept as the blurb. I’m still baffled by how Sir Ian McEwan even thought of the concept of portraying Hamlet from an unborn child’s perspective. The book gives you chills and gets you tensed every now and then with its sudden jolts (just like the baby in the womb experiences).

Coming to the storyline, there isn’t much bout the same. The plot is very basic and plain. However, the way McEwan has implemented the idea is indeed spectacular. The narration part is the one that intrigues the readers the most. 2 minutes into the premise and the first thought which will strike you is “how this entire thing is going to take place”. Basically the lady was in her third trimester of gestation period and fetus boy can hear everything going on around him. This builds one more fascinating theory, can a fetus able to listen to stuff, and maybe after the intense labor they forget everything. The Nutshell
