profound pleasure of reading Kidd s debut novel Himself and I fell utterly in love with her writing I adored the lovely mix of mystery and magical realism of the story I was amazed by how skillfully the narrative was weaved I discovered that Kidd s writing is breathtakingly beautifulSince then I have eagerly awaited my opportunity to read Things in Jars My excitement and anticipation for this book have been difficult to contain I have known without doubt that Kidd would not disappoint I have known I would love every magnificent word of it And correct I was Things in Jars is captivating It is a clever wonderfully creative and mesmerizing gothic mystery Masterfully blending magical realism and Irish folklore with the paranormal Kidd tells a tale that is both uniue and fantastical I found myself completely under Kidd s spell wholly immersed in the enchantment of the storyKidd s writing has a very whimsical air to it In my review of Himself I even went so far as to compare her to Neil Gaiman and I still fully stand behind that assessment Her prose is gorgeously lyrical and elegantly readable All major and minor characters are fully developed likable and memorable I dare you to not love Bridie Cora and Ruby I double dare you even Kidd establishes setting like no other you can literally see hear feel taste and smell Victorian London in all its dreary dirty glory Although I do think at times she gets a bit overly descriptive of certain scenes to the point where the reader is dropped out of the story for a short period due to the large influx of information But a minor complaint She sets a very wry witty tone to the narrative and she has such a knack for infusing warmth and humor into what is indeed an extremely dark storyAah yes the darkness Be forewarned Things in Jars is not for the faint of heart It is brutal and gruesome It is bloody and gritty There are scenes of disturbing animal cruelty and graphic surgical procedures There is violence against women One violent scene against a female character I found particularly bothersome because it seemed a bit gratuitous and unnecessary to the story I could ve done without it To be certain Things in Jars is not without its horrors And know that these horrors make for sueamish moments of readingBut to Kidd s credit she somehow manages to deftly offset all that darkness with light Again her writing is so charming and funny and she brings such whimsy to the story that it s almost as if she masks or cloaks the gruesomeness Or sort of smudges the edges of the blackness to where it all becomes a bit fuzzy Or gently nudges the reader s focus towards the light rather than the dark It s uite remarkable the perfect balancing act she achieves between such a stark dichotomyAnd that melding of dark and light is part of what makes Things in Jars such a special read Mystery lovers magical realism lovers just plain ol good fiction lovers do not miss this one I wholeheartedly recommend it and hope that this will not be our first and only adventure with Bridie DevineMay there be many to come How Baking Works through The Birthday Party A Memoir of Survival the labyrinthine sooty streets of Victorian London
