    Holy carp, what to say about this bookFirst off, it s my second book by a Finnish author in a fairly short time The two authors, Sinisalo and Emmi It ranta, couldn t bedifferent in style or subject Birdbrain tells the story of two Finnish eco tourists hiking in Tasmania and New Zealand The timeline is a bit fragmented There s some jumping back and forth in time and place I actually sat down at one point and started a linear timeline, just to get the events to line up clearly in my Holy carp, what to say about this bookFirst off, it s my second book by a Finnish author in a fairly short time The two authors, Sinisalo and Emmi It ranta, couldn t bedifferent in style or subject Birdbrain tells the story of two Finnish eco tourists hiking in Tasmania and New Zealand The timeline is a bit fragmented There s some jumping back and forth in time and place I actually sat down at one point and started a linear timeline, just to get the events to line up clearly in my head Jyrki, the male of the party, is a hard core hiker, seeking out places farthest off the beaten track for his travels Heidi isrooted in the modern world She basically joins Jyrki s trip on a whim Each one relates what happens from his her own point of view That s actually an interesting way to tell the story, because Heidi and Jyrki tend to see things VERY differently.The hikers narratives are interspersed with quotations from Joseph Conrad s Heart of Darkness and with little accounts told from another viewpoint view spoiler I apparently missed the fact that these accounts of someone doing bad things were being done by Heidi s brother Who may or may not have been a kea And there may or may not really have been a kea in the story at all It was all rather confusing hide spoiler These accounts from a third viewpoint are disturbing, and add to a building sense of dread through the book.In the end, I can t say for sure whether I think the book was successful or not The whole situation of the hikers got in my head a bit and worried me, so the storytelling was effective in that respect I can t say I really LIKED the characters, but that doesn t seem to have been as much of a deal breaker in this book as it sometimes is for me I think it might be worthwhile to go back and read it again and see if I understoodthings better now

    I was going to give it three stars because I almost liked it Sinisalo s books are always decently written But I just had too many problems with it I didn t mind the shifting narration but I did mind the interspersion of incredibly short descriptions of anti social behavior from some kid back in Finland and the quotations from Heart of Darkness The timeline was difficult to keep track of as well as we seemed to occasionally go backward and forward in time It appears that the story is suppose I was going to give it three stars because I almost liked it Sinisalo s books are always decently written But I just had too many problems with it I didn t mind the shifting narration but I did mind the interspersion of incredibly short descriptions of anti social behavior from some kid back in Finland and the quotations from Heart of Darkness The timeline was difficult to keep track of as well as we seemed to occasionally go backward and forward in time It appears that the story is supposed to be about mankind s mindless, selfish destruction of nature and nature s indifference and, indeed, hostility toward the life and death of humans I had to read Heart of Darkness twice for high school and college and I had the impression that the book was about the fear of the unknown, untamed, and exotic not just nature but also human beings The fear of going native The fear of people who, at the time, were not quite seen as people and the uncultivated wilderness they lived in, something the audience would think savage So, while the quotes were picked to talk about scary nature, they never resonated with the story for me.The kid back in Finland doing terrible things also seemed to be a pointless connection At first I thought maybe he had something to do with destruction of material objects because the author has Jyrki the uptight, judgmental hiking enthusiast espouse the view that you shouldn t get too attached to things The kid knew that people freak out when their stuff is sabotaged or stolen but ultimately it s replaceable But then the kid moves on to actual physical harm against people So I thought maybe these sections had to do with this idea that was put forward about mankind attempting to put a mark on the world only the kid just seems to be doing it because he likes hurting people and causing chaos view spoiler Then some of the sections are about a mischievous bird that is causing our hiking couple problems and ultimately causes a huge wildfire that almost kills them That s the real threat throughout the book This mean bird It doesn t have to hunt any because humans leave out trash and leftovers so it turns its energy toward being an asshole What, the kid is given everything he wants by Dad and therefore has leftover energy that is used to be a sociopath Okay But that s where the threatening edge to the book comes from Things go wrong for Heidi and Jyrki and it s not because Jyrki is so arrogant about his ability to plan for hiking rough terrain that he only brings along exactly the food they need and no spares of anything His hubris over thinking that the wild nature he wants to conquer by tramping through it will accommodate his exacting weight restrictions is never challenged, really It s that a bird is fucking with them And, ultimately, what saves them it is implied is that Heidi insisted on leaving their names and route in the quest book back at one of their stops A helicopter is sent to look for them People need that fragile connection to civilization Not necessarily to save them from nature but from themselves Anyway, a bird did it They would have been fine but a bird had it out for them hide spoiler

    One of several genres I d like to tackle as a fiction writer is what I ve been loosely thinking of as a Weird environmental thriller As far as I d encountered, Annihilation was about the closest to what I had in mind that existed, but I was skeptical of that absence and periodically tried different google searches to look for other things in the same ballpark This time I finally found a list that seems to have a promising selection, and Birdbrain blurbed closest to the mark It turns out tha One of several genres I d like to tackle as a fiction writer is what I ve been loosely thinking of as a Weird environmental thriller As far as I d encountered, Annihilation was about the closest to what I had in mind that existed, but I was skeptical of that absence and periodically tried different google searches to look for other things in the same ballpark This time I finally found a list that seems to have a promising selection, and Birdbrain blurbed closest to the mark It turns out that this was uncannily right aside from the general approach of the work in crafting a horror thriller around environmental experiences and themes, Birdbrain has at least two explicit commonalities with ideas and drafts on my computer I was excited to find it because it showed other people are on the same wavelength as me.The plot is extremely simple, to the point that it s not really even a tour but just a ramp of the same unpleasant experiences and interactions getting worse until the end No twists or decisions or inflection points to speak of I think that s a bold approach to plotting but almost inevitable yields a lacking product Birdbrain doesn t quite manage to be an exception, but it comes fairly close The translation is a bit rough at the outset, but it soon creates a unique, very European voice for both POV characters that helps create the engrossing sense of how annoying it is for these people to spend time with each other I m not sure if there is a world in which hikers get lost in the woods and view spoiler sentient parrots hide spoiler fuck with them but it s not a B movie because nothing dumb and fun happens on screen, it s serious literature with Heart of Darkness quotes every other page is a good idea for a book, but Birdbrain is a pretty good execution on it The thing that surprised me was that the effective part was the thriller core If you leave all the trappings aside, this is a compelling people lost in the woods getting fucked with by a mysterious monster just out of view story What doesn t work is pretty much everything else The Conrad quotes, the nattering about littering and climate change, the view spoiler kea hide spoiler POV interludes never presented as such, something you have to piece together yourself and ecological entries, all of the stuff here that s meant to make it a smart, specific story rather than a generic one of its typefail completely The litter conversation makes good grit for the sanctimonious interpersonal conflict, but it feels a bit stilted The view spoiler kea hide spoiler material is somewhere in the right territory, highlighting common traits like creativity, greed, cruelty, and littering, but without a sense of purpose or framing It s like keeping the fairly obvious after some point secret was consideredimportant than doing anything interesting with it, because doing so would tip the author s hand too much A cheap mystery box instead of a thoughtful exploration That kind of thoughtful exploration would perhaps be best served by how many times have I said this now a slow burn community drama than a wilderness journey thriller, but still
