Irma Voth

D review for July Today I share my thoughts on Toews novel Irma Voth and how it compares to the other Toews novels that I've read Irma Voth by Miriam Toews Summary and reviews That rare coming of age story able to blend the dark with the uplifting Irma Voth follows a young Mennonite woman vulnerable yet wise beyond her years who carries a terrible family secret with her on a remarkable journey to survival and redemption Nineteen year old Irma lives in a rural Mennonite community in Mexico Irma Voth Theatre Network Live at The Roxy IRMA VOTH is your first new play in a few years – what has brought you back to the theatre? I also wrote a TYA play for teens in there called CHAMPION about violence but it has been awhile TV and film had many challenges and took a lot of energy I also became a father and am about to double down on that with my amazing wife All of that weighed the simple answer is that I missed it. Toews is adept at uiet irony and at mapping the travels we make inside our own hearts especially as we move toward a truer understanding of other people and this novel displays those skills in even greater measure I find her protagonists authentic and moving and their struggles to manage the need for connection with the knowledge that it often fails or can only be won after great forebearance rings true to me This novel offers us an engaging central figure and demonstrates Toews ability to knit minor characters into our heart through dialogue I think it s a wonderful book

I really wanted to like this one I truly did The description of this novel by new to me author Miriam Toews sounded so different than anything else I d read and seemed very intriguingIrma Voth is 19 married and living in a Mennonite community in Mexico With the exception of her younger sister Irma is pretty much estranged from her family A filmmaker arrives in town to make a documentary and hires Irma as a translator Irma befriends Marijke an actress in the film and well that would be as far as I got with this oneI can t really point to one specific element of this story that made me give up after 54 pages My two main issues were that the plot seemed to be all over the place kind of disjointed and unstructured Also as much as I tried I didn t feel connected to any of the characters Both of these were factors in making me lose interestNormally I don t have any problem abandoning books that aren t working for me but I did with this one because I was reading it as part of a TLC Book Tour I don t do many book tours and maybe I shouldn t do any period because this is now the second toured book that I didn t uite enjoy It left me in a conundrum about what to do about the review but after talking to the ever so gracious and understanding Trish I decided to treat this one like any other DNF and just be honest Bottom line This one just didn t work for me However I m planning to donate this ARC to my local library in hopes that Irma Voth will find a reader or two who will fall deeply in love with all that she has to offer
