    Apart from a few annoyingly unanswered uestions this book was simply fantastic I had been misinformed about Madapple and believed it to be a book mostly about teen pregnancy but though the book does contain this it is actually about much exciting stuff It's realistic fiction and yet there's this beauty to the writing that makes it read like a fantasy a modern day United States setting that still manages to seem completely out of this world

Ther might beWhen Aslaug's mother dies unexpectedly everything changes For Aslaug is a suspect in her mother's death And the her story unravels the uestions unfold About the nature of Aslaug's birth About what she should do next About whether divine miracles have tru. As I sit down to review this book I can t help thinking of Star Trek Okay sure MADAPPLE has nothing to do with Trek But it s human nature to retreat into The Known when traumatized by The Unknown so I make no apologiesThe nature of Christianity faith ie faith in general not just Christian is a key player in the undercurrents of MADAPPLEor so I ve decided since it s a murky post modern exercise of literary fiction therefore subject to scholarly opinions that range from Huh to WTF is this And so as I try to make sense of MADAPPLE I can t help remembering a key moment in Star Trek V Excuse me I d just like to ask a uestion What does God need with a starshipThe starship in MADAPPLE is a girl named AslaugI think Her birth was suspect from the beginningI think Her mother was either a genius or a madwomanI think Her aunt was a preacherI think Her boy cousin was a horndogI think And her girl cousin was loony tunesI think Well okay The girl cousin was insane But as for the rest of it I m not uite sure who was who what was what The chapters alternate in structure half Aslaug half court transcripts and from this springs the herky jerky narrativeThings began well enough Aslaug lives with her mother in near isolation their house is without electricity they eat nothing but local plants herbs Aslaug is homeschooled in multiple languages scientific theories mythology But her mother forbids religion something Aslaug can t understand She also refuses to talk about the missing father another thing Aslaug can t understandSo far so good Even with the dreaded first person present narration I was hooked despite a small voice of warning in the back of my head I decided to read Aslaug s mother passes away uite suddenly leaving her daughter alone in the world She wanders into a small town nearby thereby stumbling into the extended family she didn t know existed an aunt her two kids a son daughter And from here the book spirals rapidly downhill Rather than detail Aslaug s indoctrination into normality which would have been interesting given her strange upbringing we re thrust into a tedious exploration of false Christianity religious fanaticism This is all well good in a comparative religions class or even a nonfiction tome o higher learning but this is YA fiction I have zero interest in entire chapters devoted to infodumping early Christianity I have zero interest in the girl cousin s loopy zealot behavior I have zero interest in Aslaug s confusion over whether she dreamed having sexor was it rape God only knows no pun intendedThat said I congratulate Aslaug on solving the mystery of her birthwithin the last 15 pages The suspense was agonizing Just like a migraine Oh snap I also congratulate Bekka aka useless minor character who is inexplicably a bitch on her vital role in that mysteryalso within the last 15 pages Simple mathematics leave a blank canvas from pg 120 to pg 395 so we observe everyone bumble in the haze of Aslaug s narration helplessly watching as she picks tugs unravels the same topics over over until there s not enough yarn to make a sweater for a teacup poodle Despite so many devices that should have made this book exciting incest secret pregnancy baby swapping drunken preachers it barely held my attention The alternating scenes were just enough to drag me kicking screaming to the finale otherwise I might not be here tonight blessing your world with Trek gifs like this Yeah Pretty much I should probably stop trying to read literary fiction And what does God need with a starship
