Ig and priceless that no one has ever felt this way beforeWhat didn t work for me was Jonathan as the narrator main character I never got attached to or felt much for him at all Really None Of The Characters Wowed Me I of the characters me I forgive a million faults in a book if it has at least Two brothers Jonathan and Roger Roger has some learning disabilities mental issues We never El Abc Del Vallenato really know just what is wrong with Roger I think this book would have be far interesting if we could have heard what Roger was thinking But the story is from Jonathan s perspective only he is the narrator Jonathan takes care of his brother Roger after the death of their parents which he will do for his entire lifetime But prior to their parents deaths Jonathan meets Harriet and they go off to college together and they get married Jonathan has a bit of a jealous streak Roger has a insect farm where he spends the majority of his time The premise of the story is how well do you ever know anyone especially your mentally handicapped brother I guess where I felt the story fell down is hey why don t you ask your brotherbut then where would the story be There are parts that Ieally like about this book but his descriptions were overly explained and I found it epetitive and a bit boring but I still liked the entirety of the story. Series of strange and disturbing incidents Jonathan begins to uestion every story he has ever been told about his brother and if he has so completely misjudged Roger's mind what else might he have overlooked about his family and himself As the accidents at home multiply and tragedy strikes a startling picture emerges One of these brothers is a killer and the other has no idea.

Me happened now it would be all so different DNF 13%Just a big ol bowl of ehhhh I have a lot of thoughts on this one and I m pretty sure they all contradict each other So if this eview makes very I m pretty sure they all contradict each other So if this The Scandalous Duchess review makes very sense it s because my feelings about The Insect Farm make very little senseThis is the story of Jonathan Maguire and his brother Roger who has an unidentified mental disability The plot is set in 1960s70s England as Jonathan grows up goes to school gets married etc To give away too much of the plot would fall into major spoilers category but let s just say it s mainly a family drama with a side of mystery and a few plot twists thrown inWhile overall I guess I liked the second half better maybe I don t know I warned you my thoughts on this are a mess the first half does a good job with Jonathan s younger years I thought the early chapters did a great job showing how egocentric childhood often is Jonathan is completely enraptured by the joys of summer camp as a young boy and doesn t give much thought to his brother at home but is hurt by the thought that maybe Roger didn t constantly miss him either It also did a good job of showing the pretension of the teen years God teenage Harriet was insufferable which was the point I think What teen doesn t think that their thoughts are monumentally While Jonathan's pursuit of Harriet leads him to feelings of jealousy and anguish Roger's immersion in the world he has createdeveals a capability and talent which are absent from his everyday life Roger is known to all as a loving protective yet simple man but the ever growing complexity of the insect farm suggests that he is capable of far than anyone believes Following ,
