At first I really enjoyed this book Dun s writing style is beautiful However there just seem to be so many storylines packed into uite a short book and I ended up feeling disappointed by the end as none of them seemed to come to any sort of ending It felt too fragmented for me and I ended up feeling a little confused as the book went from one storyline to another without giving you time to really fall in love with the characters

This is a rather frustrating book to me On the one hand the writing in the mechanical sense sentence and imagery etc is lovely and sometimes breathtaking On the other hand the actual story is disappointing I am not one who reuires plot heavy stories to be satisfied with a book but I do reuire something that at least connects in meaningful ways This one for me just didn t The phrase the sum of the whole is greater than its parts comes to mind here except in the case of Mourning Ruby the opposite is true The parts are much greater than their sum The author has several little figments of story each of which could be incredibly interesting if developed Unfortunately they aren t I suppose that could be the point but it left me feeling cheated The overall story which I took to be the main character Rebecca s progress in her grief didn t connect with me That arc was disjointed and too vague to make an impression It could be that I just didn t care much for Rebecca Another character Joe makes a comment at one point that she cares nothing for herself I did not find that to be the case I found she was extremely wrapped up in herself with little regard to the fact that her husband too had lost a child I think this is probably natural with grief and I could have actually embraced that fact had Rebecca been developed than she was This was a problem with nearly every character and I think that s why the overall arc falls flat with me However there are parts of this book when Helen Dun works magic Some of the way she shows Rebecca s grief are beautiful And that s why I finished the book because of those moments Unfortunately the story was too disconnected and vague to leave a very lasting impact on me

On the back cover of Mourning Ruby it says Like a Russian doll this novel opens to reveal a brilliant richness of stories locked within Unfortunately the stories simply don t hang together Although I did believe in Rebecca s grief I did not believe in Mr Damiano s stories I also found that I was relating to Joe and Rebecca s friendship than the love affair between Rebecca and Adam I also found that ultimately Joe s manuscript undermined the final scenes of the novel
