    1. And after all the quashing there remains a taleGENESIS may not live up to Jim Crace s monumental peak of writing he reached with BEING DEAD, but I think it deserves much examination than those who dismiss it as a work of Ego onanism The very nature of the story of an Actor who struts the stage and movie screen but is shackled in his personal life by his inability to connect to the women with whom he finds himself is perhaps too obvious a metaphor for men today, but it is a well developed metaph [...]


    2. Crace does not pick easy subjects Death Being Dead , Religion Quarantine and now sex Six To be frank though, this is not a book about sex, it is the life history of Lix who is an extremely fertile person and causes pregnancy every time he has unprotected sex This forms the vehicle for describing his life as a college student, out of work actor and, eventually, successful actor All this happens in a make believe European town called the City Of Kisses where rules and regulations have strayed from [...]


    3. I admire Jim Crace s boldness and imaginative power But this work left me absolutely cold The lead character is a man of inexplicable fame and fecundity in a future repressive society, and the while I think the story was meant to illuminate larger themes of love and sacrifice and relationship, it just seemed to me to go nowhere It s too bad There aren t many novelists who can write equally well about the Stone Age, Jesus 40 days in the desert, and two decomposing bodies, but this novel was a bus [...]


    4. I usually like anything Jim Crace writes, but I didn t think much of this one By halfway through I was bored with it and thinking of giving up I wish I had The characters weren t very likeable and I felt no affinity with any of them The storyline was about how an actor fathered six children hence the title by various partners at various times during his life in a city somewhere in Europe Yes, it was about as interesting as that If you haven t read Jim Crace before, I would recommend trying one o [...]


    5. I usually find Jim Crace s writing beautiful and poetic Not even his writing saved this story for me This is a story about the conception of one man s children and the emotion, frame of mind of both the man and the women and the physical act at the time of conception There was nothing about this story to like, the story, characters even the depth was missing any quality that would have made this a good read Maybe the story was just to stripped of the fantasy and perceptions we as humans like to [...]


    6. A beautifully written book, with elegant prose and an intriguing idea However, months years, maybe after having read it, I have little memories of it save that it was a good read, that it dealt with a man cursed with a extraordinary gift for fecundity and that I remember wondering what Crace wanted to tell with this story.


    7. Jim Crace seems to have an underground following He is a highly inventive and theme challenging author, which is what I really like He s not an Oprah pick author, and because of that I highly recommend his novels This one follows a man through six of his sexual relationships It s better than it sounds P


    8. A very erotic tale of great fecundity Jim Crace is a writer who cannot be pigeon holed and is always surprising and inevitably entertaining If only a few writers had his imagination and talent.


    9. A man impregnates every woman he sleeps with if he doesn t use protection that is , the premise of the fourth Jim Crace title I ve read The storyline is interesting and kept me reading, but there was the missing element of deeper meanings that Crace did so well and easily in Being Dead.


    10. Nope Straight up did not care Maybe an okay book, but it almost completely failed to grip me Couldn t really figure out how the multiple story lines guy who s super fertile, speculative post flood fictional city fit together nope.


    11. The main character gets every woman he sleeps with pregnant This is his story of how each of his children came to be I enjoy this guy s writing It s very poetic at times A manly look at things I wonder if it s truthful.


    12. Another of Crace s concisely written books, giving an individual perspective, this time on one man s children over his several relationships whether they were the product of long term relationships or a coupling Love Crace s work generally this one didn t let me down at all.


    13. Chronicling a guy s life which is unique because every woman he has had sex with carries a child Interesting in that it does not flow linearly but a little schmaltzy at the end Quarantine was a better book but this one was enjoyable enough.




    14. A fascinating study of a fictional actor and the fictional town in which he lives, and the children he sires with every lover.
