I really wanted this to be very good after having read the first SJP for Hogarth pick and loving it but this was sorely lacking for meThis novel was set in Trinidad and it did give a real sense of place and life there and I was uite enjoying it at first the story of twin boys born with one twin having difficulty from the start and ending up labeled as retardedThis is the story of their life growing up in this place and the family dynamics that surrounded them how one twin was favored and an impossible decision that had to be madeThank you to Netgalley and SJP for Hogarth for the advanced copy

Golden ChildA deeply affecting debut novel set in Trinidad following the lives of a family as they navigate impossible choices about scarcity loyalty and loveRural Trinidad a brick house on stilts surrounded by bush a family uietly surviving just trying to live a decent life Clyde the father works long exhausting shifts at the petroleum plant in southern Trinidad Joy his wife looks after. 35 stars rounded upThis is the second book I’ve read this year with parents treating their children differently believing that one over the other has a better chance at a successful life believing that one is better than the other An awful thing really especially when a choice results in dire conseuences a choice that I could not imagine in a million years making a choice that in my view never had to be made a moral dilemma which I found difficult to even see as a dilemma Clyde seems to be barely getting by in a job at a petroleum plant living with his wife Joy and their twin teenage sons Peter and Paul in an old house in Trinidad Recognizing the importance of an education and a way out for his son Peter who is singled out at school as not just smart but gifted Clyde focuses on what it would take for Peter to go to college and through the generosity of an Uncle this could be possible Paul who had the cord around his neck at birth has been deemed “retarded” and “crazy” is considered so by his parents I couldn’t help but think that Paul hasn’t done well because it wasn’t expected that he would Paul for me was the most clearly defined character and it was a shame that his family did not see him for who he really was It’s hard to tell about what happens without giving the story away I can only say that I was heartbroken and disturbed Perhaps this is meant to give us an understanding of life on this island Trinidad and while the author does a good job of taking us through Clyde’s thoughts and his perspective I just could not begin to understand his decision let alone accept it This was a difficult read on an emotional level so I’m glad that I read it with Diane and Esil I received an advanced copy of this book from Sip for HogarthCrown through NetGalley
