    1 thought on “Ingratitude

    1. “They cling to life the way feathers cling to a bird, without realizing how little they weigh. They hate those who’d rather set sail, abandon a life they don’t own, jump into the void, which at least has the advantage of being endless. They accuse them of cowardice to prove their own bravery. They take the liberty of judging the dead. As a result, the dead are seen differently from one era to the next: heavy or light, heroic or cowardly, valuable or useless, virtuous or immoral. Death has [...]

    2. This illusion had sustained her all these years, the inability to love being less hurtful than the desire not to love.It's the morning after the US Mother's Day and I'm still recovering from my first period of being under the weather since leaving for this particular stint of college, all of which has such a delicious irony to it that Fate is certainly out there laughing her ass off. For such a small degree of relation, mother and child sure has a lot of abject yet pristine yet sacrosanct yet to [...]

    3. This is a flawed book, which prevents it from being powerful (which it clearly seeks to be) or entirely convincing (which I hoped for it to be). I felt more negatively about the book in the first 2/3 of it but towards the ending, Ying Chen improves and writes better. In the early parts of the book, however, the narrative voice speaks with the volume at 100%, tinny and cramped with (sometimes clumsy) metaphors that suggest at an intensity of feeling without really understanding its nature or its [...]

    4. The story is very dark, full of angst, and contains some of the most bitter prose I've read in a while. I could taste every single negative emotion the main character felt towards her mother.

    5. Ingratitude: A Novel (Ying Chen) is a gripping tale told from the perspective of young Yan-Zi. She is bitter towards her mother, suffering years of emotional abuse. As Yan-Zi plots her suicide, to show the final act of defiance towards her mother, one is able to feel the emotional pain and burdens she carries. Well written, Ingratitude shows the struggle between mother and daughter and the ultimate fate of this(sad) lack of communication between the two. Excellent read.

    6. C'est magnifiquement écrit et poétique. J'ai beaucoup aimé l'aspect philosophique de ce roman et que ça traite d'une dure réalité d'une manière particulièrement douce.

    7. Novela corta infestada de una rabia y una frustración muy agria y violenta. Siento que me ha faltado algo en el fluir de la prosa, quizás algo más de impulso o de afectación. Todo y con eso, la reflexión sobre la relación madre - hija me ha parecido terriblemente sincera y cruel, una visión muy lúcida y terrible, y por ello honesta tanto en el amor viciado como en el odio sencillo. No hay exageración o corrección a la hora de expresar el terror de la individualidad cuando la sobreprote [...]

    8. Nemmeno un (tentato) suicidio riesce a spezzare un legame così forte come quello madre-figlia.C'è qualcosa di più forte di un cordone ombelicale ad unirle.Una condanna?Un libro con poche risposte e molte domande e ipotesi, per nulla rassicurante.

    9. I am giving this the exact same review that I gave the book Mad Shadows by Marie-Claire Blais:Oh, my, this was godawful! I read it for my French Literature in Translation Course. A lot of the reading for that course is godawful, but the instructor makes some meaning out of it vis a vis French culture (and it usually involves the Catholic Church) and we have a good discussion on life experiences because it is for 55+ aged people who have great this to say anyway. But, this book was still godawful [...]

    10. This book is disturbing but realistic in showing how it feels to be emotionally neglected by your parents. The woman keeps trying to win her parents' love, despite the obvious hopelessness of that effort. It's a sad story but all too common, with heartbreaking results. The only good thing that might come from this book is if someone reading it realizes that she must give up on parents like that, and live for herself. Loyalty is over-rated and often leads to unnecessary suffering.

    11. I had a hard time with this book, short as it is. I found it to be self-indulgent, lacking in substance and quite boring.
