    One thought on “My Sister Lives On The Mantelpiece”

    1. I’ve been sitting here for a bit trying to collect my thoughts enough that I can write the kind of coherent review this book deserves. There are so many things I want to speak about and discuss but at the same time, I wonder if it wouldn’t be more appropriate to just ask you to please read this book. It might be the best one you read this year.The novel has the same poignant flavor as Tabitha Suzuma’s Forbidden. The same sort of intricate family politics and themes of self-discovery and fr [...]

    2. My Sister Lives on the Mantelpiece takes place five years after bombs went off in London killing 62 people. The story follows the aftermath of the family of the youngest victim, Rose, from the perspective of her now 10-year-old brother, Jamie. Jamie's parents, unable to deal with the blame and guilt they place on one another, have finally split up. Jamie and Jas, Rose's twin, move with their father out into the country. One benefit, according to their father, is to get away from Muslims. After a [...]

    3. “My sister Rose lives on the mantelpiece.Well, some of her does.A collarbone, two ribs, a bit of skull, and a little toe.” This story follows ten-year-old Jamie, after one of his sisters died during a terrorist bombing, and the effects this has had within his family. His mother and father are separated, mother has found another lover, father has become a fervent Islamophobe, and his other sister Jas, lives in the shadow of Rose, the one that died. But Jamie meets a girl, a Muslim girl named [...]

    4. Me ha gustado mucho. Me ha hecho reír, llorar y pensar. Lo termino con un nudo en en el pecho y con una tímida sonrisa. Uno de los libros que más me ha llegado este año, sin duda. ❤❤

    5. You would expect a book written about a family who lost a child in a terrorist attack would be a tearjerker, possibly to the point of being manipulative. It's what I expected. But that isn't what Pitcher was writing about. In some ways, it's the exact opposite. Pitcher isn't writing about the rawness of new grief. This isn't about Jamie's grief over losing his sister, because he doesn't really feel grief. He doesn't remember her, never really knew her, and only misses her because of the hole her [...]

    6. Wow! I laughed, I cried (dammit!). What a wonderful book. I can not believe it is a debut novel. The writing is fantastic.The book is narrated by Jamie, a 10 year old, and the narration feels very "real", like he is simply sitting across from you telling you his story, with such innocence. And his story deals with some heavy topics; terrorism, racism, alcoholism, bullying and the deterioration of the family unit. This is an author worth following. I'm hooked. Next book please!

    7. I was almost finished writing a review for this when I pressed a button that made it all disappear. SO now I'm mad.So now I'm writing a simplified version.This book snuck up on me. I didn't know if I'd like this book because it's told from a ten-year-old boy's perspective. But at the end, I was emotional and trying not to cry(I did succeed but it was tough for me).The last quarter of the book was written so well and was HEARTBREAKING. Something happened that ripped my heart out and made Jamie(th [...]

    8. A really easy, quick and enjoyable read. The title of this book is what attracted me to it - It sounds really intriguing and it gave me high expectations. The premise of the book was fantastic. The book actually deals with quite a few issues (racism, alcohol abuse, grief, family break-ups) through they weren't all so obvious. I found it a little difficult to get into the childish nature of the writing (The narrator is 10 year old Jamie), but after I got more used to it, I found it quite charming [...]

    9. "אמא שיקרה שוב. היא אמרה שעם ציונים טובים אפשר להשיג כל מה שרוצים. אבל מה שרציתי היה שהיא תהיה בערב הורים, והיא לא היתה."ג'יימי בן ה 10 עובר עם אחותו ג'ס ואביו למנצ'סטר. אחותו רוז נהרגה בפיגוע של קיצונים מוסלמים בלונדון וכל מה שנותר ממנה הוא אפר בכד מוזהב על מדף בסלון. אביו שוקע במצ [...]

    10. Lidi Tahle kniha není dokonalá. Není to ani bestseller. Ale víte co? Je úžasná svým jedinečným způsobem (a taky mnohem lepší než Kečupová mračna, věřte mi). Čekal jsem průměrné a oddechové vyprávění, místo toho jsem dostal něco, co mě uhranulo a vyrazilo mi dech. Možná je to právě tím, jak je příběh přímočarý a že si na nic nehraje. Nebo je to zkrátka tím, že vám Jamie jako správný mladý hrdina sedne. Nekompromisně boží.

    11. *4,5*Áno, je veľká pravda, že táto kniha nie je megagigadokonalá. Ale čo koho do toho? Pre mňa osobne sú najlepšie knihy také, kde si zamilujete postavy a ste rozhodnutí ísť s nimi na koniec sveta. Prežívate s nimi všetko, čo oni a vnímate svet ich očami, ste odhodlaní za ne bojovať. To preto som dal Súboji kráľov jednu hviezdu, pretože aj napriek tomu, že štýl Martina je skvelý a jeho svet nemá najmenšej chybičky, postavy so mnou nič nerobili, nič mi nehovoril [...]

    12. Atmosférou mi to připomínalo mého milého (Ne)obyčejného kluka. Hrozně kouzelný, závažný, silný, důležitý a skvěle zpracovaný. Oproti Kečupovým mračnům neskutečnej posun, kam se na tohle hrabou. Neoplakala jsem to, ale dovedu si představit, že to někoho může pekelně potrápit a dojmout. Překvápko roku ♥ Nevím, proč jsem tak dlouho váhala s přečtením.90 %

    13. Úplně nevím, co si o téhle knize myslet. Kečupová mračna se mi moc líbila, takže jsem se na Sestru docela těšila. Anotaci jsem nečetla, takže jsem pak byla poměrně překvapená Příběh je to určitě silný, místy mi z některých postav (třeba Jamieho otec) bylo až zle. Nic to nemění na tom, že jsem začala nenávidět Rose a ne, bylo mi fuk, že je mrtvá. Je fajn, že tam byl i ten rasismus Pro mě nejsilnější zážitek? Konec -(view spoiler)[Kocour. Moje nejoblíben [...]

    14. Well this was a surprising and bittersweet read. Jamie is precious and my heart aches for him. Sunya is amazing I love her. Jas is also pretty darn great and their parents are buttheads.

    15. Jo, jo, jo!Annabel Pitcher mám fakt ráda, moc.Tahle knížka mě dostala stejně jako Kečupová mračna, nebo spíš ještě víc.Perspektiva desetiletého kluka je místy těžko pochopitelná, ale věrohodná.Autorka se citlivě dotýká spousty témat (alkoholismus, anorexie, rozvod, šikana, rasismus) a zpracovává je vážně dobře. Jen mi vadilo, že zvlášť hlavní hrdina občas některé z nich ignoroval.Jednoznačně 4,5/5*, ale plný počet dát nemůžu, i když mi to vehnalo s [...]

    16. Ufftak tohle bylo hodně depresivní čtení. Alespoň pro mě. Bylo to tak smutné, že se mi do té knihy chvílemi ani nechtělo. Kniha má svůj příběh a poselství. Pokud máte chuť na něco smutného a melancholického. Sáhněte po Moje sestra žije na krbové římse a čtěte o tématech jako ztráta dítěte, otec alkoholik, šikana ve škole a smrt. Já jsem asi ve fázi, kdy jsem to úplně nedávala.

    17. This is a bold, brilliantly written piece on family, loss and how to cope. Jamie Matthews is a 10-year old boy whose family has been ripped apart by tragedy. His sister Rose was killed in a terrorist bombing in London five years ago. Rose's twin, Jas, now lives totally in her shadow according to their parents, and Rose's ashes sit in an urn, almost taunting the Matthews family with her presence. Jamie's parents are a mess. His father is an alcoholic, raging against all Muslims for "killing" his [...]

    18. La historia trata de Jamie un niño de 10 años y su familia tras una perdida muy dolorosa e injusta. Hace 5 años, Rose, la hermana gemela de Jass, murió tras un atentado terrorista en Londres, desde entonces nada ha sido igual para la familia, se empieza a romper en pedacitos. Empieza por la culpa cargada de reproches entre los padres y no ponerse de acuerdo con que hacer con los restos de Rose, y deciden “repartirlos”. Es entonces cuando empieza a romperse la familia. La madre los abando [...]

    19. After I finished reading My Sister Lives on the Mantelpiece I broke into tears and held the book close to my chest, right above my heart. This year hasn’t been an awful year with books, I have given a few five-star reviews that really deserved it. I liked these books, some of them I even liked-liked, some of them I even loved. But I loved-loved this book, if there is even such a thing. My entire soul bled for this story and I found myself suddenly unable to put the book down. I feeling I have [...]

    20. Originally I was only going to give this four stars, but when a book can drive me to tears it automatically becomes a five star read. Assorted thoughts:1. The ending's very open ended and leaves some things unresolved. I'm not sure how I feel about that2. I really like Jamie, I think he's so sweet and adorable and I like the damn honesty in his voice. Kids are always so honest and I liked that in the narration.3. Jamie's relationship with his sister Jas is really cute.4. I like how all the chara [...]

    21. Jamie is the younger brother of teenage twin sisters; one who passed away in the London tube bombings. This event is treated the same way as 9/11 often is and it (embarrassingly) never occurred to me it could’ve had the same national effect.In any case, while the reverberations of this incident shake the county they shake Jamie’s family most of all. His parents are separating and his father has become one of those crazy, rambling Muslim-haters (another market I thought the U.S. cornered), no [...]

    22. Ak boli Kečupové oblaky aspoň z polovice také dobré, ako táto kniha, potom sa na ne už teraz naozaj veľmi teším.Odkedy som si musela zbaliť saky-paky a odísť z pohodlia domova, nemohla som naraziť na knihu, ktorá by si ma dokázala pripútať. No v momente keď som zbadala obálku Strieborneho leva a prečítala si prvých pár viet, vedela som že toto bude ono.Pevne verím, že sa mi v priebehu nasledujúcich dní podarí spracovať recenziu, pretože pocity vo mne stále vybuch [...]

    23. Not gonna lie: the main reason that I chose this audiobook was for David Tennant's narration. I'd never listened to an audiobook before and decided that a short book and a familiar voice was how I wanted to ease myself in. Consuming this book through my ears meant that I wasn't able to analyze it as much as I normally might - but sometimes, that's ok. There's something comforting about just sitting back and being read to, especially with a book like this.This story is about a 10-year-old boy nam [...]

    24. My mum loved this book. It's rare she says she loves a book, and she's a bigger reader than me. So I think I expected big, cry-inducing, things from this book. So I’m just gonna put this out there- I didn’t love this book.I remember reading books like these when I was a child, where these children have less than perfect childhoods for whatever reason and I never understood their actions or reasons for thinking the way they did. So there you have it, I didn’t ‘get’ the story.I found the [...]

    25. Algunos ya sabéis que me aburren un taco esas novelas que no tienen diálogos, en las que los personajes apenas interactuan entre ellos en primera persona, bien, pues este no tiene "diálogos", y lo pongo entre comillas porque hay algo, pero relatado desde el punto de vista de Jamie. Es como si el protagonista nos escribiese una carta citando lo que dice cada persona pero sin ponerlo como un diálogo fluido si no más bien "mi hermana dijo" o "mi padre dijo" y quizá haya sido eso lo que para m [...]

    26. After reading Ketchup Clouds by Annabel Pitcher, I was recommended to read My Sister Lives on the Mantelpiece by her as well. And I'm glad that I did.This is a sad and heart-wrenching story about a ten-year-old boy and his wondrous and innocent view on his life and the ones surrounding him.Jamie was an adorable character; he sometimes didn't get the deeper meaning of what his sister or his friend said to him and I would get frustrated in some scenarios, but it was understandable. He was ten year [...]

    27. This book is difficult to classify. Technically, it is a children's book; it has a 10 year old narrator, and the story is told entirely from his point-of-view. And yet, I'm more apt to describe this book as YA -- or "for everyone" who has grown up and had to deal with all of the losses, big and small, that life throws at you. (That should cover pretty much everyone.) Young Jamie has had to deal with loss on a spectacularly huge scale. His sister has died in a terrorist bombing five years before [...]

    28. I normally hate stories told from the point of view of children cause the writer always ends up either making the child sound too mature or too stupid. This book had a nice blend though, it felt relatively authentic for the most part. It didn't feel like a complete story and there was something missing but overall, I enjoyed it.

    29. Lynda already wrote everything I want to say about the book and the author so read her review.My addition is to say what a wonderful pleasure it was listening to David Tennant read the story to me. He really made Jamie come alive.An exceptional story raised even higher by an exceptional performance in audio!
