Popular Kindle A Glittering Chaos Lisa Young states on the back cover that "here is a writer who is willing to explore the darkest corners of the human psyche..." Yes, de Nikolits includes some dark shit in her narrative, but she does so in a very shallow and cringeworthy manner. The way in which she treats subjects like mental health, transgender issues (OMG, did she just call the transgender character a cross-dresser?), spousal abuse, etc. are incredibly problematic. None of the characters are likeable. I was rooting for no one. A bunch of miserable people. The son, Jonas, was particularly flat. If I had to read this adult son say "Mami" one more time... The beginning of the story and the end of the story do not mesh. The beginning, which seemed like another ho-hum tale of a repressed, forty-something wife and vanilla sex scenes would have been more powerful if we had never heard Hans' voice. If he had been going through the same things, and it had come out slowly through Melusine's point-of-view, that would have been interesting. Even more interesting is exploring a relationship where the man is just an asshole without a messy, incest backstory. It was lazy that the author dropped Hans' point-of-view once he crossed into madness, rather than exploring the dark corners of a person's mind. Though, with the way she treated other aspects, it is probably best that she did not attempt this.I also could not stand that every character was more worried about poor Hans than the fact that he was an awful husband/father for years, sexually assaulted a young girl, etc.Lastly, this story supposedly took place in Germany, but the treatment of love and relationships and other cultural things in the narrative were very North American. The German setting was not believable.
