Reviews of : The Wonder by Emma Donoghue PDF Book
Inside this Book – This story about the investigation into claims of a young Irish Catholic girl living on nothing but water for four months was initially slow to engage me. I think this was because I disliked the main protagonist so strongly. Town and church officials have hired an outsider to continually monitor the girl-wonder to try and discern the truth. Lib is educated and harshly skeptical, believing she will unlock the mystery quickly to expose a ruse. But there is more going on than she knows and Anna is not what she expected. In fact, none of the characters are what I expected. There was a subtle creepiness about it all that kept me turning pages with the building tension. There were also morsels hard for me to swallow, e.g. I accept, miracle or not, that someone can go without food for a long time, yet though Anna appears healthy, under observation she only drinks 2 or 3 teaspoons of water per day.
Inside this book –The Wonder PDF Book by Emma Donoghue – Who would not wonder about a young child at the age of 11 years who will not eat and hasn’t for some four months, but seems to be flourishing without eating so much as a crumb. Born into the religious O’Donnell family, they all rally around the girl and believe her to be thriving by the special providence of the Almighty. The local Doctor McBrearty residing in the tiny town of Athlone, Ireland knows the family well and is unhappy with the newspapers reports not believing the story by implying it is nothing more than a hoax. He decides a committee should be formed and have the truth brought to light no matter what is uncovered. Subsequently two nurses are hired for this responsibility, to monitor Anna O’Donnell closely over a two week period by confirming not a morsel of food goes past her lips and she is indeed a miracle. A nun, Sister Michael from a nearby village with nursing skills, and a Nightingale trained Nurse from England Lib Wright, are hired for this rather extraordinary and unusual assignment. When Lib meets with Anna she is immediately suspicious of her claim to only sip water, and that most likely her family have been feeding her on the sly.
