excellent book Barney Norris writes with clear eyed unflinching insight into the human condition but with real compassion and a redemptive note of hope which makes this something uite specialFive Rivers Met On A Wooded Plain is a seuence of five stories each narrated in the first person by a variety of characters all of whom live in or near Salisbury It becomes clear eventually that their stories are related to a greater or lesser extent but each is an individual tale It s hard to give an idea of plot because these are chiefly character studies and the point of the book is their individual stories and the light they shed on what it is to live and to love and how we can sometimes end up somewhere wholly other and sometimes as someone else entirely from what we planned or expected There is the ex wild child florist and part time drug dealer the adolescent falling in love for the first time just as his father becomes gravely ill the old man whose wife dies after a contented life together the desperately lonely depressed army wife and the young man returning home to Salisbury after heartbreak in London It s a very disparate cast which Norris paints with exceptional perception and skill so all of them seemed absolutely real and recognisable to me and all of them had something important to sayJust as examples Sam is fifteen and falling in love It s a very well worn theme but I thought it exceptionally well done and incredibly poignant Norris brilliantly captures the mixture of excitement delight and terror and that sense that no one especially such a wonder as the girl you admire so could possibly be interested in you I was very moved by his story and by the othersThe voices were completely convincing to me and Norris has a skilled dramatist s way of placing events and ideas whose significance becomes clear later on so it s very well structured too This book has an air of melancholy and loss but also of hope and human fulfilment

Sigla editoriale Transworld Digital; ISBN ; Lingua Uneuivocal 5 stars Five Rivers Met on a Wooded Plain is the debut novel of playwright Barney Norris These rivers meet in Salisbury England where the five characters of this novel live The beginning is beautifully lyrical I had no idea what I was in for as I hadn t bothered to read the blurbFive ordinary people are impacted by a car accident either as observers or participantsOne by one we get to meet each of them through first person narrationsFirst we meet Rita middle aged flower seller in the market and small time drug seller on the side Rita is a simple woman who s made some bad choices Now she finds herself alone and lonely and estranged from her only child She doesn t blame anyone for her failures Rita comes through very realistically her narration was so well done I never judged her I actually felt very sorry for her The next character we get to meet is Sam a high school boy who s a bit shy but somehow manages to find love Unfortunately his kind and unassuming father is dying of lung cancer This personal tragedy throws Sam s world upside down Sam s anxieties and struggles to find his identity are or less universal Again Norris did a fantastic job with this character as wellThe old farmer George Street is driving his car coming from the hospital where his wife of many decades had succumbed to cancer I was deeply touched by farmer George s story by his love for his wife His thoughts on love and marriage children or better said lack of children regrets and especially on memory made me shed a few tears One of the better realised characters was Alison She s the wife of an army man so they ve moved around a lot Their only child goes to a boarding school so Alison finds herself desperately lonely depressed without any friends and purpose She s hopelessly anxious and tries hard to pull herself together She s got a bit of an addiction to pills and the occasional drink to take the edge off A very familiar story Again I was impressed with Norris s ability to create such a complex and layered female character I ve looked Norris up he was in his late twenties when he wrote this so I can t help but be impressed The last character we meet is Liam who s a security guard at at Old Sarum hill His story is the shortest but that s not to say it s not well doneAs it s the case with many literary fiction novels this is about the characters and their stories not so much about the plot although I loved how the characters and their stories interweaved The little details and coincidences are exuisite Even the title is beautiful and meaningfulDespite being a small novel its themes are big the meaning of life regrets choice purpose belonging love loneliness loss and griefBesides the beautiful writing and the terrific characterisations the humanity and kindness that transpired made me appreciate this novel so muchBravo Barney Norris Looking forward to your next novelHighly recommended I ve received this novel via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review Many thanks to Random House UK Transworld Publishers for the opportunity to read and review this terrific novel
