This is a story about a history teacher Tom Crick He is in his fifties and lives in Greenwich England known for its observatory Greenwich Mean Time and 0 longitude You might say it is where time starts or at least the place by which other times are set This is a book about the importance of history both world history and personal history History hinges upon what came before in timeTom is the narrator of the story He starts in the present the 1980s He is being forced into retirement Why Decreased funding or something else Instead of delivering dry lectures he decides to tell of his own ancestors his years as a teenager growing up in the Fens the coastal lands of East Anglia and of his marriage He weaves himself into history Why Because personal stories make history relevantThe telling shifts this way and that in time The telling is fragmentary and nonlinear This is a techniue that usually does not appeal to me but it works here There is an excitement a sense of tension that builds in the novel You want to know and and A sentence is started and then left hanging You know exactly what was to be said but is then not said This writing style is unusual I have not run into it before It s good very good It draws your attention keeps you alert and adds suspense There is an underlying satirical tone that has you uestioning what is implied The prose is thought provokingAs we are shown why a knowledge of history is important we see life in the Fens The area and life there are drawn vividly We learn of how wetlands are recovered of floods sluice gates the management of locks and even eels The spawning of European eels in the Sargasso Sea and eels in a girl s panties All of this is told by a master storyteller an instructor who has a natural talent for teaching Think back to those special teachers you have had those teachers that incite curiosity that make learning magical Reading this book is like being in such a class What is drawn is no happy story but it feels real We read of the discovery and awakening of sexual desire Of incest mental retardation jealousy and envy Abortion and deaths A father fights in the First World War and his son in the Second World War Is history simply a record of past mistakes How do religious beliefs fit into the picture Can knowledge of past events make us better people With knowledge can we make better decisions Sometimes yes Sometimes no Life without curiosity is a dead end If you have curiosity how can one stop asking why why why as life unrolls If you are a person who incessantly asks why the need for history is a givenChristian Rodska narrates the audiobook At the beginning he reads too fast He slows down As you come to know who is who the story is no longer difficult to follow By the end I thought the narration was worth four stars very good The book shouldn t work but it most definitely does work I like it a lot and will be reading by the author soon I know my gut reaction explaining why is what is difficult
