INTELLIGENT and GENIUS are the two best words I can think of to describe this book. One of the joys I find when I first pick up ANY book by John Boyne is knowing that it will be unlike any OTHER book I’ve read by him, AND in THIS case, unlike every other book I’ve ever read. Let me try to describe it – and please understand that this WILL not be easy and WILL take work.
Imagine a historical novel that is episodic, with chapters that follow a chronology beginning in AD 1 and ending with an epilogue in 2080. Each chapter relates to a different time period and global location. So one episode could take place in Namibia, Argentina or New Zealand and the following ones in Scotland, North Korea or Greece. Occasionally, a character comes into brief contact with a recognizable figure from the story.
Now, based on that, establish a continuous story about the same handful of characters. Their names change slightly as their geography changes, but they’re easily recognizable and their narrative is fluid. The main character is an artist who is forced to appreciate his talent, even in the face of family and friends striving to enforce more traditional societal expectations. The novel is about his life – his search for love and acceptance, betrayal and revenge, loss and recovery.
Overall, the novel turns into a kind of “everyone’s” story that we can all easily identify with. A human history documentary that examines the relationships, values, struggles and choices that are part of our daily lives. And as you see the title suggests, it’s about our own struggle to understand nature of the true wisdom. I found the book really ambitious, compelling and impressive. And with a killer surprise ending!
Written by the incredible author John Boyne, The Heart’s Invisible Furies was ranked number one among my best books of 2017, which made me an instant fan (my review). As soon as I hear Boyne WILL be publishing a new book this year, my NetGalley request will come through. I wanted to read A Traveler at the Gates of Wisdom as soon as I was approved but forced myself to wait. Was the wait worth it? Well, ha and no.
A traveler tells the story of one man’s life through the lives of many men. It begins in AD 1 with a newborn boy in Palestine and moves in leaps of 30 to 50 years through the more than 2000 years. The little place changes with each new iteration, which advances its story in increments. The basics of this man’s life remain the same: he is an artist, he has an older brother who has disappeared, a cousin betrays him and he outlives three wives. This daring creativity in storytelling made Boyne’s latest book a unique and powerfully written history lesson.
I was constantly hooked on where his story would go next, but at the same time, with the many quick jumps, I could never feel connected to the narrator of the story. I missed it terribly. I was also blown away by the final chapter of the book and its epilogue. I wish they both had been different. That said, I’m glad I stuck with A Traveler at the Gates of Wisdom for Boyne’s unique narrated story, but I fear it will be a book many will give up.
