The Dressmaker was undoubtedly the surprise of the yearFrom the blurb A darkly satirical novel of love revenge and 1950s haute couture Myrtle and Molly Dunnage were the outcasts in Dungatar Australia Paying for other people's sins were like it but the town did not find it difficult to make these two people the culprits of the town's many secrets meanness and bigotry Openly so With no remorse of any kindMyrtle returns from Europe with her special dressmaking talents and turns the women into a gang of bon vivants on a haute couture high while taking care of her disabled mother Molly was mentally and emotionally disabled by the perpetual vendettas against her Many years of neglect resulted in her physical poor health unable to take care of herselfWhen Myrtle returns she decides to turn the tables Gobsmackingly so HOLY COW yesssss The town had some bills coming their way and it will be paid in ways they never anticipated Pain will no longer be our curse Molly’ sheMyrtle said ‘It will be our revenge and our reason I have made it my catalyst and my propeller It seems only fair don’t you think’ This is a beautiful book Dark and sinister haute couture noir gothic in essence if you will However the characters were funny uirky colorful eccentric smart dumb and uniue The story sad but wonderful There was a sinister town dumb and beautiful gardens Magical and mystical gems Beautiful souls who slowly bled to death Spirit that conuered the unthinkable It all changes when Myrtle arrives back in town Revenge and redemption come into play big time The prose was lyrical and smart My favorite character is undoubtedly the cross dressing police chief Sergeant Horatio Farrat ‘But oh my’ said the sergeant and raised his shoulders and closed his eyes in rapture ‘you should see the material Tilly’s got for herself’ He placed his hands on his cheeks ‘Silk organza – magenta And the design – she’s a real couturier’ he sighed ‘The structure of Balenciaga the simplicity of Chanel the drapery of Vionnet and the art of Delaunay’ He walked away with his hat perched smartly and his shoes sparkling The McSwineys were the other down and out family with the dad being the night cart man and Barney not uite what he should be with his club foot and upside down head There was a gap in the McSwiney children after Barney a pause but they had got used to him and decided there wasn’t much wrong really and started again fairly uickly In all there were now eleven McSwiney offspring I haven't read the blurb or reviews on the book apart from PattyMacDotComma's enticing thoughts and decided to make this an impromptu read A sort of on a whim read What a delight it wasAnd then discover DeB MaRtEnS's informative review providing the meaning of some of the names in the book Great job DeB Love the result of your literary sleuthing How great was the surprise to discover from the blurb that this book have become a major motion picture starring Kate Winslet and Liam Hemsworth It is a super idea This book is like The Light Between The Oceans by MLStedman an Australian gem Absolutely brilliantI'm going to watch the movie nowhttpswwwyoutubecomwatchvxWtjRECOMMENDED

Dungatar é uma peuena cidade no interior da Austrália mas onde curiosamente as mulheres se vestem como modelos parisiensesApós vinte anos de ausência Tilly Dunnage uma jovem be. 25 starsLoved the idea but not the execution it was hard to keep track of all the characters sometimes and they weren't portrayed in a flattering way An air of prejudice and bitterness hangs over alot of the town and it made me want to shake the people thereThe plot moved slowly but methodically it had its interesting points but most of the time it was blah I don't mind slow moving books most times but this one was painfully slow I did like Tilly but it was hard to understand her at times Teddy I was so so on Mad Molly was one of my favorites for most of the storyOne of those where you really don't like most of the characters but still read on to see what happensNever felt fully connected to everyone and I didn't understand the one blurb that proclaimed this a Gothic tale It didn't feel that way to meA fine idea but not an entirely enjoyable one Perhaps that's part of the pointI am curious about the movie so I may watch it not sure yetWould recommend Yes you may like it better than me I have a feeling this is one that won't stay with me I don't regret reading it and thank you again to my Goodreads Secret Santa just wish I had liked it betterAaah well onto the nextHappy reading

The DressmakerConuista os um a um através do seu enorme talento como modista Todavia cedo ressurgem os velhos rancores É então ue Tilly se apaixona e Dungatar outrora pacata mergulha no caos. An interesting book for sure I was initially intrigued about it when I learned Kate Winslet and a Hemsworth were going to be in the film adaptation But I really hope the film changes some aspects of the story because when I got to a certain plot point I wanted to throw the book across the room I was so upset I love the idea of this awful little Australian town and all its oddball characters that Tilly returns to But I struggled to follow all the characters and understand Tilly's motivations when they are revealed it seemed rushed and not terribly convincing I feel like could have been done to flesh out the story and characters and make them distinctive And I would have appreciated a little better resolution in the end It didn't uite sit right with me But I still enjoyed the experience of reading the book overall and look forward to seeing how it translates to the screen
