Clarissa’s granddaughter Andy is a spunky adorable bright wise charming kick ass fourteen year old She calls her grandmother ‘Mums’and I loved it There’s a lot going on in this story easy to follow but it wasn’t a speed rush I savored the writing and enjoyed my thoughts between readings This novel was constantly on my mind; cinematically visually real reading andor on reading breaksthis book remained in the thoughts a lot This book might not be for everyone parts definitely might be thoughPersonally I’m THRILLED I READ IT It’s soooo interestingI hope to have lengthy conversations with other readers Lots of LOVELY writing “Physically Jordan had inherited her father dark hair his green eyes; she had her mothers startling height her powerful yet graceful shoulders She had Toby’s kindness his interest in other people She had Clarissa‘s belligerence her sense of humor But she was also very much herself both clever and dreamy tolerant and demanding You couldn’t fool Jordan She was rude and highly intuitive” “Virginia Woolf didn’t write to seduce readers to hook them in from the start with glib techniues no not at all Virginia Woolf cast a spell on her readers leisurely gently so that they did not know at first how they had been lured so that they followed enchanted and docile But she made them think; she made them wonder She surprised them at times; she destabilized them And that is what Clarissa admired the most The beauty and the depths of her prose and how Virginia Woolf let her readers into her characters’ minds how Mrs Dalloway‘s entire life was revealed in one single day by dint of the ceaseless coming and going between past and present” And great dialogueClarissa is speaking with her granddaughter Andy “Remember what you said about my apartment” Clarissa begins speaking “Yes That I felt someone was watching me all the time” Andy speaking “Well that’s exactly what’s going on The artists who live in the residence are all spied upon” Clarissa “Have you talked with Mom about this” “No” “Why not” “Your mom thinks I exaggerate She worries about me She thinks I forget stuff She sees me as a disturbed old lady” “That’s because she loves you And you do forget stuff sometimes You repeat things too It doesn’t bother me” Clarissa wanted to know why she was being watched Were her dreams being tampered with And Dr Dewinter the AI hotshot owner of CASA what did she want” Last you’ll learn about Clarissa’s two husbands Toby and Francois the what why when and how comesMuch I could sharebut I haven’t given any spoilers Perhaps a few flaws but I found this book overallvery engaging Thank you St Martin’s Press Netgalley and Tatiana denRosnay

FLOWERS OF DARKNESSBY TATIANA DE ROSNAYMany many years ago in my Introduction to Psychology class at my university my professor lectured on artificial intelligence He had said so far with all the progress that has been made in the field not yet was it developed to be euivalent to the human brain But what would happen in life if it in fact was able to think for itself or create or have its own imagination That is what one of the main uestion's this novel exploresIt also gives a nod to great writer's such as Daphne du Maurier by naming one of the artist's residence benefactors called Dr Dewinter CASA is a state of the art ultra modern apartment building in Paris that is dedicated to providing homes to every kind of artist There are writer's sculptor's and painter's who all live there and they are all bilingual It is very hard to get accepted to this programClarissa is the main character who names her virtual assistant who is artificial intelligent Mrs Dalloway which beckons her love for Virginia Woolfe Clarissa can't escape the eery feeling that she is always being watched and studied That is because her perfect penthouse apartment on the top floor has cameras in every room except the bathroom As time goes on this feeling of being continually spied on deeply unsettles herClarissa has just left her second husband Francois for cheating on her Her first husband Toby is still a close friend of Clarissa's and father to her daughter Jordan and grandfather to their granddaughter Andy Andy often stays with Clarissa at the CASA residency and believes Clarissa's growing unease of her new apartment Is Clarissa paranoid or is her growing sense of believing that their is something sinister going onThis was a very uniue premise and it is executed very well with beautiful writing from Tatiana de Rosnay This novel was creepy and fast paced and can easily be devoured in one sitting I highly recommend this well written book to reader's of all genres I really loved loved loved this narrative that is peppered with uotes throughout from Romain Gary and Virginia Woolfe Moments like this are buds on the tree of life Flowers of darkness they are Virginia Woolfe Mrs Dalloway 1925Publication Date February 23 2021Thank you to Net Galley Tatiana de Rosnay and St Martin's Publishing for generously providing me with my ARC of this breathtaking novel in exchange for a fair and honest review All opinions are my own#FlowersofDarkness #TatianadeRosnay #StMartin'sPublishing #NetGalley

Hmmmmm I finished reading this book yesterday I read it in one sitting but I wanted to wait 24 hours before leaving a review as I’m not sure how I feel about it It wasn’t what I was expecting the Artificial Intelligencerobotscameras etc jarred with the narrative of the bilingual elderly protagonist I’m not sure if this was intentional I did however love the relationships between mother daughter and granddaughter I also didn’t guess the twist about the protagonist’s husband’s infidelityOverall some beautiful prose some lovely relationships but something just didn’t gel for me
