    This book grated against my skin, but I wouldn t say it was a bad book, and the secondary character a die hard 11 year old civil war re enactor who also happened to be a girl was fascinating and I loved her I kept wanting to stuff a sock in the narrator her brother s mouth, to hearabout her It was like being invited t

    I have enjoyed some Jane Hamilton booksthan others This one was very good Her prose is beautiful, and her subject matter interesting I liked the quirkiness of the characters Civil War reenactments, musicians that play music most people have never heard Their interests sometimes obsessions with the past sometimes made me forget

    I really liked this book I listened to the audio version, narrated by Robert Sean Leonard, who did a great job Like Hamilton s other book, When Madeline Was Young, this one is also sort of a coming of age story narrated by a teen aged boy, but this one is mucheffective I found this book to be very humorous It s a certain kind of humor, a

    Disobedience is about a year in the life of 17 year old Henry Shaw He is dealing with the discovery of his mother s secret affair, his sister s obsession with Civil War re enactments plus a crush on a girl in another city Once I started listening to it I realized it was a 5 1 2 hour abridged audiobook I liked the narrator and was curious what an

    This book just made so much sense How Miss Jane Hamilton wrote a boy, and not just any boy but a lovely, funny, bare, boy, is inconceivable to me It s a love story between a son and his mother It s a storing of weaning, a boy who becomes a man through vigilance over his mother s personal correspondence with her lover Watching her fall in love, betray her hu

    This book is terrible At first I thought it was because it s been a while since I read something literary, I tend to likepopulist novels But theI read theI felt like I was slogging through mud The first 100 pages are so repetitive, so circular Nothing happens Less than nothing happens If you ve read the first 10 pages, then effectively you ve read the next 90, maybe

    Aaaaaaand we re back to 2 out of 5 stars.I really need to make a shelf called Mom Books , because that s really what this one was I had a hard time figuring out what type of person Henry was his narrative voice was really kind ofmuddled, almost Like, was he 30, 17, 22 WHO S TO SAY His vocabulary and prose didn t really seem to gel all the time, and really, not that much happen

    A rite of passage story about Henry, who at 17 has discovered his mother s infidelity by reading her email messages, Disobedience explores complex family and gender themes Marital strife, the disillusionment of a young man with his mother, a pubescent girl s rejection of her female self, and the desire of all members of the family to live in some form of fantasy rather than reality form

    This book is too And everyone in it is too Too wordy Too unique Too stereotyped Too obsessive Too extreme I mean, he couldn t just be a political father he is a socialist with a history addiction The mom isn t just a musician she practically exudes music in her breath The son isn t just a teenage boy with typical angst and self discovery issues he is amiable, polite, socially acceptable to Englis

    Books like Disobedience aren t normally my cup of tea But this melancholy coming of age story goes well beyond the usual book club fare The story of sweet, sad Henry Shaw and his amazingly disfunctional but incredibly compelling family is so very much worth reading Its one of my go to novels and I ve thumbed through it many times.From his border line, Civil War reenacting sister who wears rebel grey everyw
