free read Invisible as Air Zoe Fishman ✓ 9 read download · E-book, or Kindle E-pub ✓ Zoe Fishman A provocative and timely new novel by the author of Inheriting Edith one that will haunt you long after the final page is turnedSylvie Snow knows the pressures of expectations a woman is supposed to work hard but never be tired; age gracefully but always be beautiful; fix the family problems but always be carefree Sylvie does the grocery shopping the laundry the scheduling the schlepping and the PTA ing while planning her son’s Bar Mitzvah and cheerfull. Thank you to Goodreads for this ARC I am happy I could review this book Unfortunately it did not live up to my expectationsInvisible as Air tells the story of Sylvie a mom trying to cope with everyday live while privately mourning a stillborn child Paul a husband who is entirely dependent on Sylvie while he recovers from a broken ankle and Teddy their son on the brink of turning 13 and contemplating what it means to be a man Sylvie takes one of her husband s pain pills to get through a particularly challenging day But her need for just one pill escalates into an opioid addiction This story covers addiction loss and faith all of which are interesting topics worth exploring Unfortunately the story is too unwieldy to do any of these topics justice The writing style is too weak and superficial to accomplish what the novel intends I would have uit around the 20 page mark if I didn t need to leave a review hence the one star reviewThe whole story suffers from too much telling and not enough showing Characters will state details that the reader needs to accept as true but nothing in the story backs them up This affects character development as well since we re just told what the characters are thinking and feeling instead of seeing them act that way in the story This then carries over to the plot where the major twists don t feel like they came from the characters decisions and actions The book seems like it was created when the author outlined the plot and then plugged stock characters into it rather than a story written about how characters would naturally act under given circumstances This is most apparent in the existence of Krystal an actual child who exists only to help with Teddy s plot and at one point is solving problems for the adultsIn the very first chapter Sylvie describes what all she is dreading about her day to justify taking a pain pill This pill transforms her into a happy version of Sylvie who can cope with everything But again the reader is told this we never get to see how Sylvie fails to cope with anything The chapter could have been a stronger opening if we saw Sylvie struggle through a day before caving and deciding to self medicate And the pressure that Sylvie feels she is under usually resolves itself before long She claims to feel pressure from her peers to be the perfect mom but that never comes up in the story She s stressed about planning her son s bar mitzvah then her son reuests a casual relaxed party Basically everything meant to provide motivation feels contrived and invented to move the plot forward This still makes the characters seem passive since they re only reacting to events instead of causing them Yet somehow the pace still goes from zero to sixty with little building making the plot seem jarringThere s a trend of details being included once then never mentioned again which causes the whole story to suffer I thought Sylvie s dream about horses would be significant but it never happens again and has no bearing on the rest of the story Themes and ideas can t be developed this way which creates a superficial storySpeaking of superficial every single character in this book could benefit from some self reflection and critical thinking At first I thought Sylvie was just super judgemental but all three narrating characters focus on and make assumptions based on appearances There s a lot of low vs higher class judgement none of it kind Instead of exploring this topic the story just presents it as a way to identify the family as middle class And the characters never grow or better themselves as people so this trend just annoyed me the whole time I was readingOverall the writing style is very amateur I was honestly surprised when I realized this author had published other books because this isn t even the level of writing I was seeing from classmates in high school and early college All three main characters stand in front of a mirror early in the story so they can describe their appearance to the reader I haven t seen that in a published book in years and associate this device with self published work by very young authors Any room a character enters gets the same treatment a verbal tour for the reader even if the furniture and layout of a room has no bearing on the plotThere were also issues with dependent clauses throughout the book I normally don t uote from ARCs because the material can change but this sentence sums up most of the issues I found Partly covered so that Greg and Josh s kids could still play when it rained that had been the goal of the deck Paul remembered as they stood in line for a drinkThat right there is the reason sentence diagramming needs to be taught in schoolsThis reads like the first draft of an amateur writer There s some heartwarming material hidden beneath everything else but the book would need a total rewrite to tell that story Blow Hot Blow Cold provocative and timely new novel by the author of Inheriting Edith
