Parents Guide. Messianism The Horseman of Daniel Kabbalah. The forces of war are building across Europe, but this pocket of England, where the Underworld Serie of lives are dictated by the seasons and the land, remains untouched. The Horseman

However, beneath the methodical tending of the land, and the animals, mostly the horses, there is the story of a family, their way of life working hard on the estate of Lord Prideaux.

It's a hard life, but one that provides food and shelter and a place for one's vocation in this world of divide Even for someone like me who loves quietly told stories of people and their daily, sometimes mundane lives that I feel tell so much about the human spirit, the first half of this book was a bit too quiet.

It's a hard life, but one that provides food and shelter and a place for one's vocation in this world of divided classes in rural England in It took a little time to get used to the conversational language, but detailed descriptions of the work in the fields, breaking the horses and the game hunting beautifully depict the place and atmosphere.

Eleven year old Leopold is drawn to the horses that his father cares for and has natural instincts when it comes to caring for and training them.

It is apparent that this will be Leo's story. The second half of the novel was more satisfying, as Leopold's friendship with the Charlotte, daughter of Lord Prideaux's grows.

A perceived scandal in the end brilliantly sets the stage for what the next two books of this planned trilogy might look like. This won't be for everyone with the slow story telling and as I mentioned, I found it difficult in the beginning.

However, now that I've finished it, I'm looking forward to the next book to see where it brings young Leo. View all 29 comments. May 13, Diane Barnes rated it really liked it.

I loved this book, but then I really like quiet contemplative reads. The characters in this novel live close to the land and revere and value the animals that work and provide for them.

There is very little exciting action here until the very end, where things escalate quickly. Fortunately, I have the second volume of this trilogy laying right here on my table, ready to begin.

Warning to any readers who need strong plot and plenty of action: This is not your book and you may be bored. Tim Pears I loved this book, but then I really like quiet contemplative reads.

Tim Pears writes beautifully about the seasonal nature of farm work on an English croft in It's like a time machine putting you in that time and place.

Another plus for me: I have a new favorite author. This guy can write. View all 12 comments. Mar 28, Canadian Reader rated it liked it Shelves: british , literary-fiction , rural-life , human-animal-bond.

Peers taunt him for his oddness, for preferring the company of animals, especially horses, over humans.

When we first meet Leo, he stands on the sidelines, observing his father, uncle, brothers and cousin as they go about their work in the fields.

Increasingly, though, he joins in on the labour. No need for questions; he learns by osmosis. His training of the boy causes resentment in others, however.

It intensifies the rancour between Albert and his brother, Enoch, the under-carter on the estate, and it angers his nephew, Herbert, who believes he is the rightful recipient of the training.

Beginning in January, and continuing into June, , each chapter presents a seasonal activity on the farm or wider estate. Subsequent chapters take the reader through manure spreading, turnip sowing, Mrs.

Leo sees cart wheels being fashioned and horses being shod. He leads horses to and from the mowing, rakes the mown barley fields, and begins to break and train horses.

North Devon dialect is used, and biblical allusions are frequent. Considerable attention is paid to the workings of such new farm machines as mowers and binders.

It is not uncommon for the author to linger over the intricate workings of cogs and rollers. Implements used by the smith, games keeper, and carter are precisely named.

The Horseman sets the reader down in the now-vanished world of rural England of more than a hundred years ago, where the rhythm and pace of working life were slower and dictated by the changing seasons, and where the harshness and physicality of existence were more directly experienced, too.

Pears is especially strong at showing the complexity of the relationships between humans and domesticated animals.

Unlike most of us, rural people then had daily contact with, even deep attachments to, the animals they would eventually eat. Leo has difficulty with this.

Still, she adds, Leo is right to ponder this strange and puzzling thing. In its attention to the cycle of the seasons and with its rustic characters not to mention a distressing scene involving a pig that rivals the one in Jude the Obscure , The Horseman recalls the works of Hardy, but it lacks the intricate plotting of the great Victorian novelist.

Spirited, emotional, and an expert horsewoman herself, she is one of the few humans to actually pique his interest. Though only a young girl with a small gun, she performs admirably in the shoot described at the beginning of the book.

In the final chapters, quiet, and until this point guileless Leo unwittingly provokes unanticipated, dramatic upheaval in the Sercombe family.

I later attempted his In a Land of Plenty , but it didn't engage me. A few months ago, though, my hopes were renewed when I learned that with The Horseman Pears would be returning to the pastoral setting of his first novel.

As it turns out, this new book still couldn't quite take me back to the place of his first one. I was occasionally frustrated by the slow pace, the lengthy and sometimes tedious descriptions of farm work and equipment.

Rating 3. View 2 comments. Apr 20, Phyllis rated it it was amazing. It took me a while to get into this book. The writing is hard to explain. Once you get to know the characters and the setting of the book it is quite beautiful.

The descriptions of everyday life and how everybody works together on the estate is gorgeous without being wordy.

There are no spare words and that is what drew me in. It almost has a dreamy quality. This is the first book in a trilogy.

Can't wait for the next one. View all 4 comments. Jun 03, Jeanette rated it it was amazing. Seldom, seldom do you come across a book that holds such simple and colored language to a specific place, time, station, age.

In my youth mid-century there were a plethora of these kinds of "work" books. Ones in which the tasks of a physical life were told with the specific skill and also pure, clear precision of a technical direction.

There 5 stars. There were many books that did that then. Simple books about real men and women who worked. When work was often something done everyday but also had 's of different intricate or powerful movements.

Learned and often not instinctual movements. But few of those earlier 20th century books also contained such sublime and superb prose.

Short sentences. And emotion not explained but displayed. And context not interpreted or judged in scales of morality but in context that is viewed.

And experienced. Here it is within a 12 year old. Leo's "eyes". Can't wait for the next one in the trilogy. It's coming. This is not for those who like modern action and pretentious character bouts of lies, competitions, etc.

This is from a time of class divisions accepted and proclaimed. And of identity through work and little else for those majority of the "folks". I have not read one this good in this category for a couple of decades.

And the ones I do remember were all in the present USA geographic area. This one is English and yet quite similar in some regards.

The pig sticking day, for instance. Generational love expressed for survival. No enabling. Family unit as a ever tasking team. Purposes clearly demanded and encapsulated by the material needs.

Tim Pears can write. I'm in awe. All of these are labour intensive relying not just on human effort but horse power as well. The horses are a valued part of the workforce, needing meticulous care and attention.

Young Leo has little interest in the academic subjects taught at school. He prefers observing nature: listening to bird song, watching hares play in the field, seeing pigeons roosting or swallows building their nests.

He remarks how some creatures take little notice of his presence, as if he is invisible to them. This world we surveyed was not as it was but as it was seen, in many different guises.

Plough strings, cart saddles, cobble trees and swingletrees, each hung on wooden pegs in its allotted place. He doubted whether one life was long enough to know all there was to know of horses.

There is some wonderful descriptive writing in the book such as this passage in which Leo walks before first light on a January morning.

The air was cold and clear. There were skeins of most in the low fields that were like the breath of the land made visible, like his own. The last stars of the night sky disappeared above him into the pale blue.

The fact the reader knows that life will soon be changed irrevocably gives it extra poignancy. Many of these would likely never return from the War.

Feb 26, Annette rated it really liked it. Currently in the early part of the book which is beautifully and meticulously written but a little slow.

The horse sections are well and accurately written but and this is only because I've had horses all my life there is a sense of studied information.

When Leo is left at the farrier blacksmith with a lame mare so that her foot can be checked out her father takes the other two horses that accompanied this mare back to the farm.

There's no mention of horses being separated and how they react Currently in the early part of the book which is beautifully and meticulously written but a little slow.

There's no mention of horses being separated and how they react - doesn't ring true for me. However, it is evocative and there is a story on its way though it hasn't quite turned up yet.

Well, a couple of weeks later I'm still on page When I'm reading this book it's fine, it more or less holds my interest if I don't attempt to read for longer than about twenty minutes.

But once I put the thing down I just forget about ever picking it up again. Beautifully written but oh so very slow and full of really absolutely nothing happening at all.

Not even characterisation. In fact the characters are almost non-existent. Boy or is it Leo is just a human body moving about the countryside.

Deeply disappointing. Will it get better? I may forget to find out. It does improve. The writing is really beautiful but quite risky overall to start the novel so slowly.

I realise it is presenting a time when things really did move at that pace but tough on the reader.

Things get moving about half way through the novel and then I started to sink in and enjoy. What a quiet, yet powerful book!

It evokes such a powerful feeling of time and place. The author does not make it easy for the reader. I have limited experience with farm animals, but Pears had me reaching for the dictionary frequently.

It was totally worth it though. The turn of the century English Manor came alive as did Leo. Thanks to Jeanette and Diane for your great reviews!

It's one of those books that moves along with short chapters that are seemingly about nothing more than small everyday occurrences in the like of Leo, 12 who lives among the people who work the land and the animals on the farms of a giant estate in England, where all life is tied to the seasons and the weather.

The book goes on at this pace until almost the very end when you get blindsided I actually wanted to yell One note: totally necessary for the book but a little difficult at first is the detailed language about horses, farm equipment, etc.

Just get past it And also, pretty graphic description of a pig slaughter, but again His family live on a farming estate serving the Master Lord Prideaux in his manor house doing a variety of jobs around the estate.

Leo, skinny, pale and quiet, dreams of a life working on the stud horse farm. He struggles to keep attention in school, his mind wandering to the nature around him, and his passion for horses.

The real strength of the writing is in the descriptions of the countryside. It is a wonderful coming of age story, and the first book or a trilogy.

I received my copy free from Goodreads in exchange for an honest review. This is a beautifully written account of the lives of the families who live and work on the lands of Lord Prideaux's estate on the Devon-Somerset border around , particularly the family of eleven year old Leo.

The book is written in a slow and gentle style and is beautifully descriptive. The characters are all well developed and you feel as if you are there watching the events gently unfold.

Apr 12, Glenda Johnson rated it it was amazing. Very detailed which might put some off but the descriptions of farm life are amazing and tender but not syrupy.

It took me a while to get into this book, but it was well worth it in the end. It is constructed from episodes in lives of the rural inhabitants of a Devon estate.

Christian then decides to avenge his daughter by killing all those linked to the sex tape. Along the way he meets a teenage runaway named Alice Caroline Marohasy and a fragile friendship begins to unfold.

The Horseman was conceived as a short film. While it has been criticised for the brutal violence and content matter, receiving an R rating , [10] writer and director Steven Kastrissios has mentioned he believes that the brutality is essential to the story.

Gifted with horses he is more often a quiet observer than an actor in the small dramas that surround him.

We see the world through his eyes, the rich descriptions of the yearly cycle of life on the estate are vivid and wonderful. The stacking of the hay, threshing the wheat and so on, rich in detail and, I assume, meticulously researched.

The language is simple and beautiful and the author does an excellent job transporting us right into that time and place.

Eventually descriptions alone were enough to hook me in Having worked on farms in west wales many years ago I felt a direct connection to many of the episodes which may have helped.

That was just as well really, because for most of the book there is very little obvious plot, time passes but little changes. It takes slow to the extreme.

I admit at first I was dubious as to whether I would finish as the whole thing seems a little flat, but once I started just to let it flow over me, like slow tv, or those episodes of the Archers where nothing really happens but the predictable pattern of rural life is deeply comforting, I really started to enjoy it.

And then the ending! I will just say though Mar 17, Caroline Thompson rated it it was amazing. Such a beautiful story of a tenant farmer's son who has a way with horses and, yet, is limited by his class in society.

Leo befriends the lord's daughter, who also has a way with animals. The friendship of these kindred spirits is lovely but troubling.

It is all set in rural England over a century ago and I got thoroughly immersed in the detailed descriptions of the farming life.

I think the breaking of the spirited horse really made the point of the book. If you do not fit in to your designated Such a beautiful story of a tenant farmer's son who has a way with horses and, yet, is limited by his class in society.

If you do not fit in to your designated role, you will be broken. However, knowing the first world war is looming, those roles would be changed forever.

I eagerly anticipate the second of this trilogy. Weird, yes, but take from this the fact that you can start reading the books in pretty much any order.

This volume focuses on life working the land on a manor estate in Edwardian Devon, before our young protagonist Leo is metaphorically expelled from Eden.

More people should be reading Pears. Aug 13, EBirdy rated it really liked it. Wow, didn't see that ending coming. Written with beautiful language.

It slowly unfurls over about 2 years time, enveloping you in the slow rhythms of farming in the West Country of England in The characters are likewise revealed very slowly but quite in depth.

I will be watching for the second book and may try one of his others in the meantime. Apr 08, Linden rated it really liked it.

Set in the English countryside in with extensive detail about the customs of farming at that time. The main protagonist is a 12 year-old boy gifted with superior knowledge of horses.

Oct 15, Rose Gan rated it it was amazing. This glorious novel quietly opens a door onto a year in the life of a small farm on a large Devon estate in It moves at a snail's pace through the minutiae of the farming year, full of astonishingly detailed accounts of the everyday labour - intensive activities that frame the country life.

At the heart is Leo, the son of the carter, an introverted boy who is obsessed with nature, horses most of all. He wants to become a head groom one day.

It seems that this bucolic idyll will never chang This glorious novel quietly opens a door onto a year in the life of a small farm on a large Devon estate in It seems that this bucolic idyll will never change and yet we know the dream cannot survive much longer.

A sense of doom hovers :world war one is imminent. It will affect Leo and his generation most particularly;the resultant social upheaval will end this life forever.

After so much gentle prose, the tragic denoument is a sudden and brutal intrusion. The certainties of Leo's life are ripped from him and he is abandoned to fate, much like what is waiting for his entire generation.

This is a masterful piece of work, almost Hardy - like in its elegiac qualities and sense of time and place. A triumph.

I am eager to read the rest of the trilogy and follow Leo's progress. Jan 02, Grainne MacMahon rated it really liked it. Obviously well researched, it also provided us with a wonderful insight into the mores of the time.

The characters are understated but remarkable. I loved it and have passed it on to friends of my own age and background!

This a prime example of if the quality of writing is there, lyricism of language, then it doesn't matter one iota what the genre is.

Not that I'm against slow-paced pastoral, but this is a particularly wonderful example of it; too many others get bogged down in domesticity.

Family interactions, evocation of rural life - all so well-evoked. Jun 18, Susan added it. I love horses so that first drew me in. Such a wonderful, lyrical tale of life in rural England, Jan 09, Amber rated it did not like it Shelves: historic-fiction.

Aug 27, Lori rated it really liked it Shelves: horses , fiction , historical-drama. Terrific book. It takes the reader back to in a country estate made up of 6 farms.

Beautiful details and description of the ordinary work required to husband the land. The people and horses fill this story with loving tribute.

The people emerge as bit players in the setting of the last century. Wonderful, rich moments are captured as the reader follows the life of a promising young horseman.

This story is like a warm soak in a fragrant bath. View 1 comment. Sep 15, Alicia Drake rated it it was amazing. A beautiful novel that has the same quiet, yet powerful momentum of the seasons that it so brilliantly describes.

Pears has an extraordinary gift for writing about and observing nature, the land, horses, life on the farm, life in the home. And I really enjoyed the gentle, eyes wide open humour that is always present.

I love the novel's pace and the relationship that Pears creates between Leo and Miss Charlotte. I'm looking forward to the second book in the trilogy.

Feb 04, Geoffrey Gudgion rated it it was amazing. I pulled this off the shelf at the library and was enchanted by this picture of a rural, West Country community in the years before the First World War, and in particular a year old boy with a natural affinity for horses.

The language is bare, feeling as rough-hewn as a school-room desk but so beautifully crafted. One of those books you're sad to finish, and close with a deep sense of appreciation.

I am 75 and spend a childhood not that dissimilar to Leo's. My childhood was in a remote Cotswolds village and my brother and I were sort of the village urchins.

The pace of life, the few words spoken, and then very much like the Somerset twang resonated with me as I read this engaging book.

But we were very different to Leo. We hated and were frightened of horses! The pig killing scene was very familiar and we had our Lord of the Manor.

Some things were missing from this Tim's rural idyll, the I am 75 and spend a childhood not that dissimilar to Leo's. Some things were missing from this Tim's rural idyll, the first cuckooing of the year was a big event, the evocative country smells Bad language was the norm as was the interest in girls from a very young age.

Leo was indeed a very late developer! If you are interested in the "other side" of deeply rural life we have recently written under pseudonyms because of still existing sensitivities a true account of our lives to aged 12 "Coming Matters".

May 06, Kate Bullock rated it really liked it. I think 'elegiac' is a word some people may attach to this because of its subject matter and pace, and I would not disagree.

The detail of the lives in pre World War Somerset was beautifully depicted. I look forward to reading the next in the trilogy.

Nov 07, Andrew Collins rated it liked it. It is a story attractively told and in considerable detail.

It moves at the pace of life at the time in which the novel is set - until a crescendo of action in the last few pages.

The story of the young carter's son is haunting and the more so as we are never privy to his thoughts or emotions. If one seeks an action-packed thriller, this is definitely not the book for you.

If, on the other hand, you wasn't a charming introduction to life in the English countryside years ago, Tim Pears' book i It is a story attractively told and in considerable detail.

See the full list. Christian, a divorced father and white collar businessman grieves over the complicated death of his daughter.

When a video arrives anonymously in the mail, featuring his daughter heavily intoxicated and mistreated, Christian sets out on a reckless journey to find answers.

Fuelled by rage and sorrow, the death toll quickly rises as he uncovers an ugly truth. Along the way he meets Alice, a young runaway not unlike his daughter and a fragile friendship begins to unfold.

Written by Anonymous. He's in pest control. The pests are human; specifically, pornographers. And though the name badge on his denim work dungarees says 'Christian', his ethical sensibilities have more in common with the Old Testament than with turning the other cheek.

Before supplying the answer in the voice of Michael Winner: 'blow their balls off, dear! While in Steven Soderbergh's 'The Limey', Terence Stamp's ex-con investigates his daughter Jenny's suspicious death in - where else - LA, leaving a trail of dead heavies behind him.

While the Danish animation Princess sees a former missionary taking bloody revenge on those contributing to his porn star sister's sordid demise.

Charles Bronson, especially, has form here: in 's 'Gang War', his mild-mannered maths teacher becomes self-appointed judge, jury and executioner when his wife is murdered by mobsters.

While in 's 'Death Wish', his mild-mannered architect was anyone buying this, by the way? To lose one family to muggers may be regarded as a misfortune; to lose two looks like carelessness, as Oscar Wilde observed, before Bronson shot him.

The common denominator for many of these films - or to put it another way, the movie they're half-inching their plots from - is Mike Hodges' Britcrime classic 'Get Carter', the daddy of 'relative retribution' movies, in which Michael Caine's one-man murder-machine avenges the death of his brother and the virtual rape of his niece Doreen, coerced into a stag flick called 'Teacher's Pet' by the plum-faced fellow who went on to pull pints for Arthur and Terry at The Winchester.

In The Horseman the anonymously-posted porn video goes by the lovely name of 'Young City Sluts II', whose leading lady Jesse latterly resides in an urn in her dad's van, having expired on a tide of booze, opiates and bodily fluids post-shoot.

If nothing else, this film underlines the fact that human ashes do not look in the least like fine, velvety sand; they look like kitty litter.

Roving through rural Queensland, Christian Peter Marshall attempts to restore the karmic balance, leaving the distributor, director and performers with faces resembling bowls of peach melba, and a shortfall of testicles.

A scene in which one leery larrikin has fishing hooks threaded through his Niagaras nearly rivals Hard Candy for leg-crossing trauma.

And Steven Kastrissios's unflinching debut feature is just that: a riper slice of old school-style Ozploitation you could hardly wish for.

However, as Tarantino also emphasised, "The reason you watch exploitation cinema is to have those moments when you're like, 'is this actually happening?!

Am I actually seeing this?! Yet within the first half-hour The Horseman finds itself trotting up a cul-de-sac.

This is bum-numbingly repetitive stuff: the Horseman locates target, and the lumbering Ocker-Beasts roll around on the floor, until the Horseman finally gets the better of his opponent with something blunt.

Repeat six times until the audience relinquishes the urge to exist or becomes fixated on a rogue popcorn husk stuck in the back of the throat.

It's a real pity, because buried among the endless stabbings, gougings and nipple abuse not to mention an unlikely scene when our middle-aged anti-hero dispatches three muscled twentysomethings single-handedly there's clearly a classier movie struggling to get a word in edgeways.

Aside from a solid central performance by Marshall as the deeply troubled, self-harming anti-hero, there's some interesting, complex stuff surrounding issues of culpability Jesse, we discover, entered the industry entirely of her own volition , some fine technical flourishes, and good, naturalistic rapport between Christian and the young hitchhiking runaway Alice Caroline Marohasy he meets on the road, and with whom he comes to share an ersatz father-daughter relationship; a plot strand which also turns up in Hardcore - the ultra-devout Jake Van Dorn striking up a similar bond with Season Hubley's young hooker Niki.

There's enough potential here to suggest director Kastrissios is definitely a name to watch. He just needs to trust the fact that audiences are just as interested in characterisation and narrative as in seeing white walls repeatedly decorated with 'Neural Mist' by Dulux.
