Little Egypt uIntroduced with a segment from mathematical or biological sciences which reflect on work concerns of her mathematician husband or herself I love how Boyd has Hope trying tose analogies from academic advances to provide structure for her efforts to The Red Couch understand her life s journey For example her husband John makes a lot of progress in areas of turbulence and catastrophe theory which fuels her efforts to account for sudden discontinuities in her own life as John s own psychological instability leads him to focus instead on invariance of forms in the field of topology she looks to how other people differ from herltimately in only in minor ways She also learns a lot about the relativism of frames of reference which she relates her own mood influencing her levels of optimism or pessimism To me Boyd isn t making a heavy philosophical stretch here but he is illustrating very well how people link abstract ideas to their personal lives and outlookIn the case of Hope s work at the research station the parallels between primate and human behavior represent a substantive analogy For decades Jane Goodall s work on chimps in their natural environment captivated the world with a vision of largely peaceful almost Edenic society which we as their closest evolutionary relatives might somehow aspire to regain The shock of discovery that chimps in some circumstances engage in infanticide cannibalism and lethal territorial warfare put an end to such simplistic thinking As this work was widely publicized it is not much of a spoiler to reveal that the plot of this book deals with Hope making discoveries of such violence and encountering conflicts and resistance in acceptance of her findings I thought Boyd s portrayal of conflicts between scientific objectivity and human biases and emotions to be ite plausible although I am sure the scientists involved in this work would be offended over the dramatic fictionThe book includes a segment where the nstable politics of the Congo intrude dangerously on the lives of the scientists in the form of actions by a revolutionary faction Compared to the murder of gorilla researcher Dian Fossey in Rwanda the events included in this narrative are restrained but frighteningly realistic The charming rebel leader featured Dr Amilcar deflates Hope s sense of the importance of her scientific work by exclaiming You value a monkey than a human and by concluding You think that if you know everything you can escape from the world But you can t Hope is a fully realized character that I admired both as a strong woman hero and as a very human scientist As made clear at the start she survives the cataclysmic climaxes of both threads of her life revealed at the end As she walks the beach at the end as in interludes elsewhere in the book the theme of permanence despite perpetual change is realized Like life itself a simple story of powerful events linked to a few choices resonates with many niversal themes Brazzaville Beach is a well plotted novel about science war and ideas following the adventures of Hope Clearwater in England and the Congo When the novel opens Hope Clearwater is living in a house on Brazzaville Beach that she owns as a result of her Egyptian lover S Death In The Civil death in the civil in the Congo She is reflecting on the complexities of her life over the last two years and recuperating from being taken hostage by the rebels Hope is trying to figure out all that s happened to her both in England with her husband and the events that caused her to flee to a new job in Africa and the challenges she s faced since then How much of what has Happened Is Due To is due to actions and how much is just random eventsThe author allows s to follow her thoughts by dividing her narration of them into two voices one told in the first person and one told in the third This has the effect of making them both seem immediate as if they were taking place at the same time She also dwells on mathematics a lot Her husband was a mathematician trying to develop a formula or algorithm around turbulence all of which is difficult for Hope to nderstand It s also causing problems for her husband who eventually goes insane with predictably disruptive resultsThis is how Hope finds herself in a Primate Study Group in the Congo during the civil war Although she s just completed her PhD in ecology this is the first time she has worked with chimps and now she is working for the world s expert in the field When some bizarre and frightening things begin to happen in the field Dr Mallabar finds Hope threatening to his work and reputationBrazzaville Beach is a complex and cleverly told tale of human beings and their interactions nder pressure both personal and from outside the group Everything is dovetailed to fit neatly together philosophically although this doesn t become obvious ntil it s all over The story is interesting enough so that you don t get hit over the head with the allegorical nature but are able to appreciate how well done it is Brazzaville Beach literary novel as absorbing page turner William Boyd proves himself master of the craft so much drama so much suspenseThe skinny twentysomething Hope Clearwater lives on Brazzaville Beach in West Africa recovering from two major shocks in her life The first relates to her former husband back in England

Hope Shares The Events And 
shares the events and that led to her living alone on this beachHer most recent post was in the Congo with the established and respected scholar Eugene Mallobar a PhD and author of several books on primates who has studied them for 30 years Although Hope had no experience in working with chimpanzees she works diligently with regard and respect She makes a daily rendezvous to study them in the wild Her assignment is to observe and track the movements of a southern faction of apes that broke off from the northernersHope makes a harrowing discovery about the two groups of chimps the northerners and the southerner group that split off When she shares it with Mallobar he becomes threatened he also has a new research book coming out He tries to deny the accuracy of Hope s observation skills The civil wars of the Congo both overshadow and parallel the events at the Grosso Arvore Research Center the chimps and the behavior of some of the scientistsEach new titled section or chapter of the novel begins in italics often presenting the various divergence and chaos theories of her ex husband s research and giving room for the reader to tie in concepts Brazzaville Beach tells the stories of Hope Clearwater It two periods telling them in parallel although follows the other chronologically Each period comes to a dramatic conclusion The book builds to deliver both conclusions as close together as the narrative allows There are themes that recur in Hope s experiences There is anger violence madness conspiracy There is violence instigated by academics and tenderness provided by soldiersSo far I ve described a complex structure The structure is there to be recognised and admired if you want to analyse The story needs no analysis and the structure doesn t get in the way of a brilliantly engaging novel Her supervisor tells Hope The tide is either coming in or it s going out Hope s fortunes ebb and flow and keep the pages turningThis is my clear favourite among the books by William Boyd that I ve read I read it soon after it was published It didn t disappoint when I read it again It s one of the very few books that I will revisit agai.

Oh my this book is hard to explain First of all it IS engaging I didn t want to stop listening It is full of information It keeps you thinking and it doesn t necessarily provide answers Definitely four stars It starts and ends with the line The nexamined life is not worth living I guess you would have to classify this as a cerebral novel but also the parts set in Africa are dramatic one thing happens after another a civil war and infanticide and aggression and cannibalism and murder Not one but several Murder of chimpanzees but they are so similar to human beings that these too must be seen as murders Chimpanzees and bonobos are the closest living relatives to human beings Chimpanzees are aggressive than bonobosThere are three threads which flip back and forth This is ntil you get the knack of it confusing One thread is years ago when Hope is in England then married to John a mathematician Another thread is in the Republic of the Congo at a chimpanzee game reserve a research center Hope is both an ecologist and an ethologist The African setting occurs later in time after her marriage has dissolved A third thread is when she later looks back on her experiences with her husband and then in Africa She is trying to figure out what went wrong and why and if she was guilty and what could have been changed She is an ethologist She wants to Crystal Reports .NET Programming understandjust as her husband had been a mathematician and he too wanted tonderstand to simplify life to get it into a formula something to put on a paper in black and white Isn t life for observing and for trying to Newtons Cannon (The Age of Unreason, understand Do we evernderstand Maybe that is the whole point of the book Life is a wondrous puzzle that we must try to Bonsái understand even if we never willnderstand I am not sure but reading this will keep you thinking That I guarantee I would have appreciated an author s note to place the years of the civil war of the Republic of the Congo Congo Brazzaville I call it the little Congo the one on the ocean not the big one that is called Democratic but isn t I needed to know I NEVER found an answer and that too is so typical for this book The book is published in 1990 and the only civil war I could find for this country was from 1997 1999 I sent a A Want of Kindness uestion to the author co the publisher Will I get an answer What is important is that the author has experienced civil wars in Africa The Biafran War so the war episodes feel pitch perfect We know for sure is that the Biafran War is over and that ended in 1970The author superbly looks at our closest relative and makess think about human behavior There is abundant sex and it is physical but human sex IS physical just as it is with chimps I think the sex is well done It might bother some Not me There is discord and aggression and manipulation The parallels are intriguing I told you it was cerebral Continually you are comparing chimps and humans and mathematical axiomsI really liked the narration by Harriet Walter There is not much she can do to alert the reader to the changes of setting in both time and place You just HAVE TO PAY ATTENTION THE AUDIO FORMAT IS CHALLENGING to pay attention The audio format is challenging I enjoyed it tremendously You get help with the setting changes from the point of view A Little Kinder used The African thread is told in first person and the English setting is in third person There are also shortotes concerning mathematical theories Sounds complicated It is but it is still very very good A puzzle to be solved just like lifeETA This I forgot Recognition people want it is still very very good A puzzle to be solved just like lifeETA This I forgot Recognition people want need recognition but to what degree I saw a difference here between John and Hope John s need of recognitionacclaim was monumental Hope s less so I look at Hope and I admire her She is the central character She is s modern woman She is strong and wise and loving and she doesn t expect as much as John She doesn t demand as much recognition Who is happier Of chimps and humansAs Hope Clearwater sits on the beach outside her home in the Republic of the Congo she looks back over the circumstances of her life that have brought her here her marriage to mathematician John Clearwater and her later work at Grosso Arvore a chimpanzee

their self interestsThe author has created such an honest and sympathetic character in Hope that it seemed as if each time I began reading it was like spending time with a friend an honest friend I delighted in this book because it tells a compelling human story with "A Rich Framework Of Ideas "rich framework of ideas appeal to me The tale is of a woman Hope Clearwater reflecting back on her

Boyd alternates the narrative of Hope s life in Africa told in first person with that of her life in England rendered in third person The contrast between these two parts of her life as well as
