And the quest to find Foe and to account for Friday becomes a study of the nature and basis of story and writing, language and power, and the central challenge in Coetzee's metafictional exploration. Susan seeks a voice but Friday, the African slave, is silent. Susan Barton, searching for her missing daughter in Brazil, is thrown up on the island after a shipboard mutiny, and gradually adjusts to the basic environment and company of long-term castaway Cruso and African slave, Friday.
Rescued a year later and upon Cruso's death from fever, Captain Smith, their rescuer, predicts great interest in the story and encourages Susan to write or team up with a writer. Marooned again in English society when the chosen writer, Daniel Foe, flees his debts and runs from the bailiffs, Susan struggles to survive with the newly freed Friday in tow, impoverished and in danger, searching for the writer who has taken on her project — and taken over her life.
Susan eventually finds Foe and queries the book's progress, disputing content, shape and emphasis and exploring their conflicting views and goals. Susan is a realist and seeker of truth and Foe represents the commercial class in the new capitalist system but he is also a philosopher. Together they speculate about story and truth and the act of writing. And what to do with Friday is a key concern. An unidentified, neutral voice traces the generalised beginning and end of the story — unhinged from the embodied search for verifiable fact. Is this the "true" perspective?
In two versions, it comes upon the characters in the submerged wreck of the ship, lifeless, only Friday is still barely alive. The speaker's point of view then travels out into a dimension of experience and sensation beyond humans and island and sea, beyond both speech and writing. It is the home of Friday". The idea of authorship emerges in the play on Defoe's name, and the author of Robinson Crusoe was a man of many roles and journeys who created a resourceful "economic man" in his memorable hero.
Resourcefulness is both necessary and business-savvy. Playing, as well, with the untrustworthy status of Coetzee's writer-figure, Foe seems purely self-interested, exploiting all resources. Coetzee, through the medium of Susan's direct addresses, first sets up the shadowy figure of Foe, the author claiming to partner Susan in creating a book in the first two parts.
Enterprise and ownership play a large role in the disputed shape of the story, with Susan wishing to be true to events and Foe wanting to mediate and to foster interest and sales, including a more interest in exotic Bahia than the island and a prurient interest in Friday as a cannibal and whether there was much sex on the island.
He argues that Friday should be taught to write, but it is too late for his colonised body. Foe colonises Susan's story and she colonises Friday's unknown story. As a woman, Susan is already the marginalsed Other. Yet she also objectifies Friday in her varied perceptions.

And this book is a good reason why I trust her opinion. It's a very well done and fresh fantasy novel. The human kingdom that the action focuses around there are others on the periphery of the novel is built on land that not so long ago inhabited by the Faena - basically all sorts of magical creatures. In many senses the setting harkens to a type of fantasy old frontier ca.
The civilized human nation does its Was given this as a Christmas present last year by someone who's opinion I trust. The civilized human nation does its best to forget the magical creatures that it recently displaced, but they still exist across the border, and the novel is in many ways about the intersection of the two worlds. I can only assume the further books continue to examine the same theme.
Covenants (Borderlands, #1) by Lorna Freeman
Even though it was a long book, it kept moving fairly well and the characters and magic system really held my interest. As I was nearing the end of this book I was feeling glad that I had the next one waiting on my shelf because I did not want to leave this world. Feb 15, Beth rated it it was amazing Shelves: I absolutely love this book -- I own two dead tree copies as I was afraid I may read the first to death. THis is my comfort series -- I adore it beyond reason. Cannot recommend it enough. View all 3 comments. Jul 13, Rosalind M rated it it was amazing Shelves: To think I almost didn't pick this up!
It's very difficult to write from first person, but you'd never know it from the ease with which Lorna Freeman lets us see through Rabbit's eyes. One of my treasures when I was away from home. May 07, Furio rated it liked it. I originally picked up this book because I was lead to believe that it included gay main characters. There are actually none as there is no sex scene at all. I was not disappointed by the book itself, though. It is far from spotless and it shows its author's lack of writing experience but it is enjoyable.

The first person POV makes it easier to identify with the endearing main character but it also makes it much more difficult for the author to draw a detailed picture of what happens in such eventful plot.
Some inconsistencies and strained passages are the price she must pay for her stylistical choice. The plot is hardly an original one, the same old story of the same old boy next door turning out to be more than he looks like and saving the day in a rather pompous way, but there is a good tension and some good climaxes. Writing is pleasant an rich overrich?
Some situations tend to become repetitive after a while and in my opinion a good editor could have suggested some cuts. Characterization is a bit commonplace, with the villains being despicably so and the heroes unfaltering in any difficult condition. On the other hand irony and lightness lighten up several pages. Making the Border the home of any fairy creature ever known to fantastic literature, from unicorns to dragons to elfs, is probably an exaggeration but it is tolerable. This book is certainly not a masterpiece but it manages to be entertaining.
Jun 17, Dan rated it really liked it Shelves: At first I was not totally engrossed by it. But by around a third of the way in I was solidly hooked. Nov 30, kvon rated it really liked it Recommends it for: For a first novel it is good. It has a lot of the standard sword and sorcery tropes, but does spice it up with some new elements. Individual characters are all pretty definitively good or evil, but groups priests, nobles, etc are morally mixed.
The hidden heir comes of age and learns his place in the noble rankings, but wants no part of it. Talking animals who are not cute. I do have an american squick when the tyrant is good and the capitalists are evil although Terry Pratchett can pull this For a first novel it is good. I do have an american squick when the tyrant is good and the capitalists are evil although Terry Pratchett can pull this off.
Good enough that I want to read the sequel. Oh yes, this looks like a trilogy. Jan 06, Bookwormgirl rated it it was amazing Shelves: I bought this book when it was first released. I admit it was because of the art work. Then I read it, the sarcasm in this book still cracks me up. I found I really liked not only Rabbit but the cast of characters he was surrounded by. This is the first book of an ongoing series. There are three books in the series now, with at least one more. Jun 03, Elisebeth rated it liked it. I wanted to like this book a lot, I really did. It started out so promising.
But eventually I had to put it down. I got so frustrated with the lack of detail; almost everything is described via the talking of the characters. His world building is beautiful and immersive and oh so detailed. Going from that to this was just too jarring and frustrating.
What was the magic that Rabbit summoned when he almost kil I wanted to like this book a lot, I really did. What was the magic that Rabbit summoned when he almost killed his bully? We know it was the result of all his anger and frustration, but I want to know what all the characters were freaking out about. I want to know what the cities look like; the capital is described briefly as an elf city, but what does an elf city look like? And the politics in this book were also frustrating. However, the politics in this book were annoying. You are never given a clear picture of the politics; instead they're used as an excuse, with the characters frequently saying "politics!
I'll probably give this book a try again when I'm not feeling like reading some world building. But as of now I am, and so this book was disappointing, despite the excellent premise. Aug 04, Temaris rated it it was amazing Shelves: It's a cute, enjoyable read. The characters are individual, and fascinating; lots of shades of grey.
The pacing is phenomenal, and the author keeps a firmhand on all the plots, subplots and extras, so much so that I rather suspect she has a lot more to say about this world -- which can only be a good thing: I don't re-read often, but this one got re-read today for the umpteenth time, and I can't wait for the third one to come out! Sep 14, Sherwood Smith added it Shelves: I really liked the story, and I think I would have loved the way it was told if I'd read it many years ago.
Freeman has a vivid imagination--I bet she's a fellow visual writer--and a knack for creating appealing characters. I loved Rabbit, even if he is a bit of a Gary Stu. Freeman makes him so charming that I am totally along for the ride. My problem is the excessive scaffolding in the sentences, which slow the pace tremendously for me.

I know many readers don't notice that, and love the books the way they are. Aug 15, Daniela rated it it was amazing. Covenants has great dialogue, tense and intelligent. It also presents horror in a sublime way. It is perfectly organized and memorable. I couldn't put it down and really got into the action, and the ideas the relationship between the Border and Iversterre, the People and humans.
I also love the layers of identity discovered in various characters. Quite a few characters are intriguing, and their interractions keep you on your toes. It has become a book that I prefer to reread instead of picking Covenants has great dialogue, tense and intelligent. It has become a book that I prefer to reread instead of picking up a new one. Mar 21, Jael rated it it was amazing Shelves: Lately, I've had horrible results with books from authors I haven't read before and even ones I've been reading for a long time.
Covenants was one to break me out of that slump. I was recommended this book by Goodreads, so, I read an excerpt of it. However, the main character isn't a women, he's a man or boy His name is Rabbit. Fearsome name for the hero of the story, ri Lately, I've had horrible results with books from authors I haven't read before and even ones I've been reading for a long time.
Fearsome name for the hero of the story, right? Rabbit is a trooper for the Royal Guard. During a patrol in the mountains, his troop becomes lost, when Rabbit stumbles across Laurel, a "magical" or Faena, essentially magical creatures. But Rabbit is from the Border - a place where the Faena are common place- and knows how to treat Laurel and the traditions involved with the Faena. Laurel helps them become unlost, but soon Rabbit and his group of the Royal Guard are on a mission to save their country.
Since Faena have been murdered and their bodies used as goods.
