    1. A family falls apart after the political assassination of one of its members The story unfolds in a series of interior monologues written from the points of view of the murder victim s widow and two brothers The author reveals some interesting psychological insights into the nature of sibling rivalry in the relationship among the three brothers and one sister of this dysfunctional family There are even some hints along the way that one or both brothers might have been involved in Andrew s murder [...]


    2. I ve been reading JCO s catalog in it s entirety everything poetry, essays, short stories, anthologies, compilations and this is by far the most difficult, hard to like work I ve encountered.That doesn t make it uncompelling, it s just slow going so far It seems to work better as a concept than in execution Told in three parts, all in first person stream of consciousness narration you will choke on the ellipses alone , it details the lives of two brothers and the widow of a sort of right wing re [...]


    3. i m reading JCO on the urging of my writing teacher, and i am really thankful that he bugged me, because she s pretty amazing she s got a truly staggering volume of work available to the interested reader i am disappointed that i chose this book first because i didn t love it, but i saw the kernels of what i would like, so i stopped part wayis book has an insane, frantic energy to it, created by characters who are in crisis and wobbling between sanity and insanity, that made it unpleasant for me [...]


    4. Ugh This particular combination of plot and character manages to ruin family, sex, politics, art, and religion She certainly assassinates any redeeming aspects of contemporary 1970s American society as well as any redeeming qualities in her characters What she attempts to do with the writing is interesting, but the first section is almost unreadable because her narrator is insane Although intentional, the style is choppy and annoying The second and third sections smooth out considerably, but I d [...]


    5. Narratives were hard to follow, but this book and its characters intrigued me enough to read by Joyce Carol Oates Some of the descriptions were exquisite and memorable while other elements were quickly forgettable Not her best Would recommend I ll Take You There or Marya.


    6. I gave it 100 pages before deciding I didn t want to finish I get JCO s writing style and I ve been a fan of hers for decades, but just not this one I just didn t find it interesting enough to keep my attention I think possibly if Hughe s section was shorteror if it switched back and forth between the voices instead of ALL of Hughe s viewpoint first.I might not have abandoned it I considered putting bookmarks at the beginning of each of the three viewpoints and switching back and forth, but deci [...]


    7. I have mixed feelings about The Assassins A Book of Hours On the one hand I like it a lot but there are things that just left me cold The Assassins A Book of Hours is a difficult book to get on board with The Assassins A Book of Hours is a very bleak book, much bleaker that other JCO novels Nothing good happens to anyone in this novel The characters are all pretty awful even Andrew the man who was assassinated Hugh is insane and his section of The Assassins A Book of Hours was extremely hard to [...]


    8. The Assassins is the story of three people dealing with the assassination of a former republican senator and major right wing intellectual The senator s two brothers narratives bookend the widow s narrative, each following the other in the novel but dealing with the situation concurrently As a technique this is strange because it forces the reader to view each concurrent entry through the knowlege of what appeared in the preceding, waiting for moments to overlap I kept expecting for this to be m [...]


    9. The personality of three characters are similiar but different Great job by Joyce to have each character stand out in their own way A fourth character that is killed at the beginning appears throughout the book.


    10. In Invisible Writer it is said that Yvonne is dreaming in the very end of her part of the book I don t see any suggestion of that anywhere I had to make myself finish this book, the only part I liked was where we get a brief glimpse into her past The rest of it is like watching paint dry.
