Saint X Author Alexis Schaitkin

Saint X Author Alexis Schaitkin Free read Ï 9 Alexis Schaitkin » 9 Review Claire is only seven years old when her college age sister Alison disappears on the last night of their family vacation at a resort on the Caribbean island of Saint X Several days later Alison’s body is found in a remote spot on a nearby cay and two local men – employees at the resort are arrested But the evidence is slim the timeline against it and the men are soon released The story turns into national tabloid news a luri. That night Claire is awakened by the sound of a key rattling in the lock As she surfaces from dreams she watches the door to the hotel room open Her sister tiptoes across the room and slides into bed In the morning Claire wakes at dawn to find her sister s bed empty She is on the balcony her eyes fixed on something in the distance It seems her sister is hardly sleeping at allThe problem with reading a book and putting off writing the review for weeks is that the small details begin to fade but Saint X is the type of read that reuires deep thought and pondering before discussing I m still not sure I can do a review of this book justice as it is so many aspects put into one cohesive timeline Part true crime style mystery part delayed coming of age Saint X provides a suspenseful investigation coupled with self discovery of the protagonistThis was an eye opening glance at how deep the ties between race and privilege run The author did a fantastic job of creating a uniue narrative while touching on themes as old as time and bringing attention to just how far America and us privileged folks in general needs to progress The pacing is very slow and detailed which works well for this type of story but is told in such a riveting voice This isn t a thriller per se but it does take on a few of the ualities that fans of psychological suspense find appealing If you re interested in other recent literary fiction novels featuring social justice discussions please consider giving your time to this worthy story as well Many thanks to the publisher for providing my review copy

Before I begin my review I would first like to ask everyone to stand for a slow clap in reverence for Celadon Books The new voices they are presenting to the literary world are beyond compare I ve no doubt that all of my friends on Goodreads Island of Misfit Readers has AT LEAST one of their authors books on their Best of 2019 listSo kudos Celadon you ve made mine and many others year in books among the best yetAhem ok here we goSimply stated Alexis Schaitkin was born to be a writer Schaitkin chose to open up this story using a third person objective POV and it was a phenomenal choice I felt like a literal fly on the wall as I took my first taste of the characters in Saint XFrom there I have somewhat bipolar feelings about this story I loved the seamless weaving of the multiple plotlines along with the random chapters featuring POV s from peripheral characters However I didn t care for any of the characters themselves I never felt any real affection or aversion towards any of them I loved that the author chose to build a fictional island for this story I had no trouble picturing the resort with it s privileged clientele and the surrounding destitution just beyond it s lily white walls However I was lulled to sleep by the over descriptive world building when it came to the NYC scenes Maybe if you re a New Yorker this would appeal to you but for me it was relentless drivelFor me the most affecting part of this story isn t the grief or obsession that is at the heart of the story It is the underlying messages about race and privilegeI saw myself in the thoughts and actions of this overindulged white family Things I ve said and done in an attempt to show how woke I am only succeeded in showing my complete and utter ignorance Schaitkin has given me an entirely new perspective and shaken and changed me in a profound way Isn t that what great writing is supposed to do I recieved an ARC and some cool island swag from Celadon All opinions are my own
