Contemporary life in a modern country drives cruel existential conditions and violence against people.
This is the story about human solidarity in an unknown environment, about people and their faith.
‘Marta is sitting down and looking at the wall. The wall is empty, without painting. There is a typewriter with black paper. There are no letters on the paper. White, it is so white without letters. Same as the wall. Quite white. Where have all the colors gone? She needs light and color.’ So begins An Unexpected Mess written by the talented and well-accomplished author that is Marie Washtag. Washtag’s latest novel is a hard-hitting, poignant, moving piece of contemporary fiction that will move its readers. Its incredible story which is focused on harsh realities that occur in this world is stellar and emotive and will make the reader feel a host of different emotions. Contemporary fiction is an incredible genre for me because most of these books examine the world today through a fictional character and Marie Washtag has perfectly done just this with her novel; An Unexpected Mess.
An Unexpected Mess is a moving piece of literature that is hard hitting at times but also crucial to read. It explores the life of Marta and her journey (as well as a few more characters journeys) in the modern world and to overcome adversity. Violence dominates the world, it is around every corner, and even though the events that happen within this genius novel are enough to break the human spirit, it does not, and human solidarity conquers and rises. The premise of An Unexpected Mess is just this, but please know book lovers that a host of other things occurs and when it does it is incredibly entertaining that will keep you turning the pages into the early hours of the morning!
Marie Washtag is an incredible author whose first two books look just as brilliant as this one. I admit I have not read the first two books written by her, but I am desperate to now after this exceptional book of hers! I mention her first two books because when I read the descriptions of both, they are both very different and different from the tone of An Unexpected Mess. This confirms that Marie Washtag is a talented, versatile author who knows how to write great stories that appeal to many different readers. Her perfect book will move you as a reader and will make you think about the world and the harsh realities that occur as well as what you can do to change this. Overall An Unexpected Mess is a beautifully written, flawless novel that will take its readers on a journey of emotions and so I have no choice but to award An Unexpected Mess a dazzling Five Stars! So please book lovers, read this flawless book and be lost in its poignant story. I promise you will not be disappointed!
