批評家のレビュー

"Like a series of grenades exploding." (Marian Keyes)

"Wow. Dark, hypnotic and horrifying, with a central protagonist in Joan who demands your deepest empathy despite every transgression, it’s brilliantly written and expertly done. I loved it." (Harriet Tyce, best-selling author of Blood Orange and The Lies You Told)

"I don’t think there is a writer alive who writes about the interior lives of women with the raw truth and intensity [Taddeo] does.... Fearless, sexy, brutal and just forensically observed. She is extraordinary." (Jojo Moyes)

あらすじ・解説

Bloomsbury presents Animal by Lisa Taddeo, read by Emma Roberts.

The first novel from Lisa Taddeo, author of the internationally best-selling phenomenon Three Women.

A 2021 highlight for: Guardian - Sunday Express - Independent - New Statesman - Evening Standard - Cosmopolitan - Red - Daily Mail - Daily Express - The Week - Irish Times - i - The Sun.

I drove myself out of New York City, where a man shot himself in front of me. He was a gluttonous man and when his blood came out it looked like the blood of a pig.

That’s a cruel thing to think, I know. He did it in a restaurant where I was having dinner with another man, another married man.

Do you see how this is going? But I wasn’t always that way.

I am depraved. I hope you like me.

What an incredible book!!!!

This is the most incredibly powerful , beautifully written book, read with perfection by Emma Roberts. Lisa Thaddeo’s book speaks to the animal in all of us, good, bad, beautiful and savage. Her writing is magnificent, the story so unusual but beautifully woven. I loved this book so much. Emma Roberts could not have done a better job of conveying this story. Five stars from top to bottom.

keep going

it's a tough book to read, it's slow for most of it but damn is it worth it.
A story of a woman's struggle with her relationship to men and her connection with other women.
Parts may be triggering, shocking and down right disgusting but I found overall the story to be wonderful.
somehow the author made it feel so real, I was her, I went through those events and now I just want to hug my Mum.

Dark, well written

Emma Roberts’ reading of this dark story made it worth staying until the end.

The story went too far in places - the wolves scene and the murder…. Jumped the (dark) shark to demonstrate how “depraved” Joan was. For that reason, I would be embarrassed to recommend the book to anyone - which is a shame because I found Joan compelling until then.

Don't bother

I kept listening to this. .even with the narrator's rather irritating voice. I kept hoping it would grip me..interest me...be good...but sadly it was jumbled rambling interspersed with bad sex experiences and men's behaviours....not enough to carry 9 hours ...I have up with 5 hours left.

Never believe the blurb

If your idea of fictional "handgrenades" or "masterpiece" is the self indulgent memoir of an unpleasant sexually incontinent dysfunctional bore (but beautiful of course) then this is the book for you.
Unbelievable vacuous characters, a plot as stupid as the Goldfinch and every nasty anglosaxon word in the dictionary. And some theft and tedious descriptions of food as well as sex for good measure.
Just a snarkier version of the shopping and f****** novel, the women have to be gorgeous, the men one dimensional, and the sex gratuitous and patronising to whatever gender.
There are a few good lines and sly observations in the first chapters but ultimately it's a tedious depressing lsten, with everything reduced, not to the animal but the greedy, superficial, envious and puerile.
Not a writer you would want to get stuck next to on long haul.

wondrous. I didn't want it to end...

After 3 women which I've now listened to multiple times i was very excited for her novel. I loved it. Her style of writing is exquisite, simply sublime and Emma Roberts narration perfect. I won't give away any spoilers but if you enjoyed 3 women I think you'll love this. if you prefer saccharine and escapism then you probably won't.

One of the most astonishing books of 2021

The narrative is seamless, a book I wanted to never end. Characterisation so finely tuned.

Incredible

The story is vibrant and intense. For me, a page turner from start to finish. Great voice reading it. Overall - outstanding piece.
I also ended up really liking the main character.

Couldn't finish this, just so boring

Such a dull story and monotone narration. I kept waiting for something to happen, & just under half way through gave up caring if it would or not.
Complete waste of a credit.

A story of fragile desperation, revenge & the search for connection.

Which doesn’t sound like a load of laughs but if that’s what you want then go for Marianne Keyes! This was a visceral, disturbing journey by an extraordinary writer who understands the complex minds & lives of women (as we also saw in her brilliant “Three Women”). A story of a child psychologically damaged by a violent episode in her childhood which stunts her ability to feel love & so she goes through womanhood taking on the role of the abuser & the abused. Sex is an important thread in this book and written in an original way revealing the main character’s dark thoughts that maybe we all have harbouring within our shadow side. Really, it’s all about the giving away and taking back of power & control in ones relationships. An important study on this and how a damaged child never really heals without help and love. But at the end of this sad & tough tale, this beautiful woman comes to understand the greatest love of all.…… I cried but would not have missed this experience. Only recommend to those who are interested in the depths of depravity in which some may be forced to sink…..

Hard book to rate

This is an ugly book, filled with ugly, irredeemable characters. I usually enjoy reading about flawed humans but there was something about the main protagonist in this book that made me feel almost dirty.

It must have been very well written to have elicited such strong emotions in me, although I finished it, I couldn’t wait to get to the end and be done with it.

Disturbing but one dimensional

Infidelity reeks havoc - but this novel lets the trauma sit with a violence that is gratuitous and at times mindless.

Loved it

I’m a sucker for a well written book that gives characters great depth and a storyline that keeps me guessing. Giving you enough of a taste to get you hooked and then spoonfuls all the way to the end, Lisa Taddeo writes an incredibly intriguing book about all the things we don’t often talk about out loud. A story that totally sucks you in. Trigger warning is probably required for some but aside from that, what a book!

Amazing

One of the best books I’ve read. Amazing, but brutal. The narrator is good enough as to not detract from the story. The story itself, wow. Just wow. I couldn’t get enough.

A unique read

Took me a while to enjoy this book but as the plot develops was brilliant and well written. Quite decrepit, shocking and sad, a story I won’t forget too soon. Great ending.
