Exciting Times by Naoise Dolan Book Review
“Exciting Times” is a good book that you can read online or download to read it later. Before starting the reading or downloading, here is the summary of the book that you can read. An intimate, bracingly intelligent debut novel about a millennial Irish expat who becomes entangled in a love triangle with a male banker and a female lawyer. Ava, newly arrived in Hong Kong from Dublin, spends her days teaching English to rich children. Julian is a banker. A banker who likes to spend money on Ava, to have sex and discuss fluctuating currencies with her. But when she asks whether he loves her, he cannot say more than “I like you a great deal”. Enter Edith. A Hong Kong-born lawyer, striking and ambitious, Edith takes Ava to the theater and leaves her tulips in the hallway. Ava wants to be her – and wants her. And then Julian writes to tell Ava he is coming back to Hong Kong…. Should Ava return to the easy compatibility of her life with Julian or take a leap into the unknown with Edith? Politically alert, heartbreakingly raw, and dryly funny, Exciting Times is thrillingly attuned to the great freedoms and greater uncertainties of modern love. In stylish, uncluttered prose, Naoise Dolan dissects the personal and financial transactions that make up a life – and announces herself as a singular new voice.
Brief Summary Exciting Times by Naoise Dolan
When we first meet Ava, she’s the “kept” FWB of a British banker named Julian who makes it painfully clear that he can take her or leave her. And despite her misgivings about this– or maybe because of them– she stays with him while teaching English to young Hongkongese children. She feels isolated from her coworkers and peers, and being adrift as a foreigner in a society that was also colonized by the British (she’s Irish) allows her to put distance between the relationships back home that fuel her uncertainty and inadequacy. Then she meets Edith, a Hongkongese woman who was born abroad and then came back and now works as a lawyer. Edith is everything Julian is not. She actually seems to care about Ava and find her interesting and worth pursuing in the ways that Julian does not. They bond over their shared love of Hong Kong and their own mutual pretensions, but the whole time that Ava and Edith are seeing each other, Ava isn’t sure if Edith is into women or, if she is, where that leaves her relationship with Julian.
