Book Review: True History of the Kelly Gang by Peter Caray (3/5)

30 Jun

I bought this book so long ago that I’m not confident where I got it. Based on the bookmark I found inside, I’m guessing it was at Dawn Treader Bookshop in Ann Arbor, MI. That place is an amazing place to get lost in for a few hours. I don’t know why it was on my TBR but I think it was before I found a copy. In my COVID-fuled effort to read my owned books, I’m glad I’m finally getting to this one!

True History of the Kelly Gang by Peter Caray

Summary from Amazon:

This is Ned Kelly’s true confession, in his own words and written on the run for an infant daughter he has never seen. To the authorities, this son of dirt-poor Irish immigrants was a born thief and, ultimately, a cold-blooded murderer; to most other Australians, he was a scapegoat and patriot persecuted by “English” landlords and their agents.

With his brothers and two friends, Kelly eluded a massive police manhunt for twenty months, living by his wits and strong heart, supplementing his bushwhacking skills with ingenious bank robberies while enjoying the support of most everyone not in uniform. He declined to flee overseas when he could, bound to win his jailed mother’s freedom by any means possible, including his own surrender. In the end, however, she served out her sentence in the same Melbourne prison where, in 1880, her son was hanged.

Still his country’s most powerful legend, Ned Kelly is here chiefly a man in full: devoted son, loving husband, fretful father, and loyal friend, now speaking as if from the grave. With this mythic outlaw and the story of his mighty travails and exploits, and with all the force of a classic Western, Peter Carey has breathed life into a historical figure who transcends all borders and embodies tragedy, perseverance, and freedom.

I read this book slowly and that took away from my enjoyment to be sure. Something about raising a child just eats up your time, huh? It took me a while to get used to the formatting. Since Ned doesn’t have a formal education, he doesn’t know proper grammar. Paragraphs have no periods, capitalization is lacking, and there’s no punctuation surrounding dialogue. It took some time and when I was away from this book for any extended time, it was an adjustment to return to it.

Ned felt real to me. It was easy to see how he became who is was based on his upbringing. I understand why the citizens were behind him and against the police. He becomes very sympathetic. Instead of feeling like an outlaw, he feels like Robin Hood and you feel bad for him. Joe, Dan, and Steve don’t receive the same treatment because this is Ned’s story, but you do feel like you can love them as well.

Ned was easy to love. You see how passionately he cares about his family and community. He has a very reasonable idea of justice and the reader can agree with him and want the same things as him. It makes sense that Dan, Joe, and Steve want to follow him and that the populace helps hide him. It would be hard to flesh out any other character the way he is without writing an epic.

It was hard to relate to many of Ned’s experiences. He had a very unique home life and his experiences with his father, step fathers, and father figures was very different from anything I’ve experienced. His hometown felt very ‘Wild West’ to me which is what I pictured since I’m unfamiliar with the Australian brush. It came off as an adventure story to me, so unfamiliar with the history of that area.

The time Ned was chased by the police toward the end is my most vivid memory of this book. It’s hard to say with confidence if it’s because I enjoyed that the most or because it’s most recent in my memory. I loved how much they thought out their crimes and how they would get the town on their side. It made robbery feel like a fun adventure, though one I don’t care to ever be a part of!

Ned’s late teens were very tumultuous. It was hard to read about his time in jail and his fights with his step fathers. Just when there was a glimmer of happiness for him, things would turn south. It felt like nothing was moving forward and that’s the part of the book that dragged for me. It’s hard to say if it was me being unable to empathize with him, or a lull in the story.

There was little recourse to find justice for Ned. He was discriminated against for being Irish and poor. He was forced to resort to criminality to defend his family when the law failed to do so. He was a sympathetic character and it’s easy to see why he was the people’s hero and the law’s enemy.

Writer’s Takeaway: The stylistic choices in this book were bold. The lack of grammatical structure took me out of the book at times and immersed me in it at others. I could hear Ned’s voice better and got deeper into his head, but I had to reread some lines and struggled to learn who was talking sometimes. I’m not sure I would ever write from a first person point of view and need to worry about that but it is a quandary of what to do to best bring out a character’s voice. Overall, I think Caray did it well and I liked getting to know Ned so well.

I had very mixed feelings on this book. Overall, Three out of Five Stars. It would be 3.5 if I did halves as I found it very enjoyable but it dragged some.

Until next time, write on.

Ghost

Currently reading: Maybe when we travel this week I’ll pick up The Girl with Ghost Eyes by M.H. Boroson. I don’t think I’ll get to it because we’ll be busy seeing family, but there’s an outside chance?
I didn’t read a page from True History of The Kelly Gang by Peter Carey. I was doing better with books when Baby was born but now that they go to sleep a little faster, I’m sacrificing reading time for sleep. I think most parents would agree that’s a good trade off.
I’m still moving in The Ghosts of Eden Park by Karen Abbott  and hope to make some more moves this week! I’m enjoying this one a lot and I see the climax coming soon.

Recently finished: Maybe next week? I’ll be optimistic.

Reading next: I still plan on Tabula Rasa by Ruth Downie and I’m hoping to start it before the end of the year, but nothing’s for sure yet.

Currently reading: I hope I still remember where I am in The Girl with Ghost Eyes by M.H. Boroson when I can pick it up again. I was enjoying this one and I’d hate to feel lost in it.
I think I read two pages from True History of The Kelly Gang by Peter Carey. I’ll get to it eventually.
I made some good progress in The Ghosts of Eden Park by Karen Abbott with a doctor’s appointment I had. It was far away and I had to make a long detour on the way home so this one is actually making some good progress!
Many of you expressed interest in me talking about the children’s books I read Baby each week. I’m trying to think of the best way to incorporate this so stay tuned!

Recently finished: I’m sure there will be something here eventually!

41JYZlm4QsL

Reading next: It’s looking like Tabula Rasa by Ruth Downie might be my first book of 2022 instead of my final one of 2021. Nothing wrong with that! Though, I will be a bit sad not to have finished my reading challenge for the first time. There are other priorities this year, though!

Kelly

Currently reading: Absolutely nothing with The Girl with Ghost Eyes by M.H. Boroson. This last week was absolutely nuts for no reason I can think of looking back. I’m just glad to have made it through!
I didn’t make progress with True History of The Kelly Gang by Peter Carey either. As I’ve said before, I’m not sure when my physical reading will pick up again, but it’s not going to be the immediate future!
I did listen to a little bit of The Ghosts of Eden Park by Karen Abbott on the one run I was able to do. I’m still enjoying it and I think this is the one book I’ll continue to make progress in.

Recently finished: Yet again, nothing this week. I’ve thought about putting together a list of all the kids books I read each week but I don’t feel justified counting those toward my Goodreads challenge for the year.

41JYZlm4QsL

Reading next: I still plan on Tabula Rasa by Ruth Downie but I’m guessing I won’t start this one until 2022 at the rate I’m going. Better late than never?

Ghost

Currently reading: I wish I could say I read something from The Girl with Ghost Eyes by M.H. Boroson but I’d be lying. I did have a great week with Baby, so I’m not complaining!
Nothing more in True History of The Kelly Gang by Peter Carey. I think we’re close to sleeping in different rooms so maybe I’ll be able to get a few pages each night once that happens. But I’m not rushing it, I love having all of us in one room!
I made progress in The Ghosts of Eden Park by Karen Abbott during my runs. Though, I do plan to slow those down a bit now that my Turkey Trot is over (it went great, by the way!). I still think audio will be my fastest format, but maybe not as fast as it was before.

Recently finished: Nothing new here this week but I’m not surprised. I’ll get some more books finished eventually.
I published my review of The Perfect Stranger by Megan Miranda on Monday so please check that out when you get a minute. I enjoyed it and gave the book Four out of Five Stars.

41JYZlm4QsL

Reading next: I’m fairly certain I wont’ finish my reading challenge this year, but I’ll try! I’ll plan on picking up Tabula Rasa by Ruth Downie as my next book. If I don’t finish it until after the new year, I’ll consider it a jump start on my 2022 challenge!

0451498631.01._SCLZZZZZZZ_SX500_

Currently reading: Again, nothing with The Girl with Ghost Eyes by M.H. Boroson. Ebooks have never been my favorite so it’s no surprise that this format is slow going for me. I’m not too upset about it, really. I’m fine with it lingering.
I knocked out another few pages of True History of The Kelly Gang by Peter Carey. My partner has to walk with the Baby before they go to sleep and I use those few minutes to crack open this book. Hopefully they’ll go down more easily soon, but I’m fine with little bits for now.
I’m excited to say I started The Ghosts of Eden Park by Karen Abbott late last week and I’m enjoying it already. I love well-written nonfiction and this fits squarely into that bucket. Maybe some longer runs can help me make good progress with this one, but I’ll probably slow down running a bit after my Turkey Trot tomorrow.

StrangerRecently finished: I wrapped up The Perfect Stranger by Megan Miranda while driving home from the nanny’s on Thursday and it felt so good to finish a book! The ending of this was satisfying because I wouldn’t have guessed it and it was well woven into the story. I’ll try to get a review written soon if Baby will let me.

Reading next: It’s way too early for me to be thinking of this! Maybe I’ll look into it next week.

Stranger

Currently reading: Nothing new with The Girl with Ghost Eyes by M.H. Boroson this week. I really need to figure out a new time that I can set aside for ebooks since I’ve hit such a wall with this one despite enjoying it when I do pick it up.
I got through a few pages of True History of The Kelly Gang by Peter Carey. I’m trying to read a little bit while my husband walks with Baby to get them to sleep. It’s slow going, but it’s movement.
I should finish The Perfect Stranger by Megan Miranda this week. I had a few drives that pushed me much further in it than I would have expected and I’m enjoying it a lot!

Recently finished: Maybe next week? I’m optimistic!

Kelly

Currently reading: I think I read about a chapter of The Girl with Ghost Eyes by M.H. Boroson during the flight. My arms got tired of holding the phone high enough that I could read over Baby’s head. I know that’s a lame excuse. It was easier to play the in-flight chess game.
Nothing new with True History of The Kelly Gang by Peter Carey this week. I don’t know why I’ve slowed down so much with this one and I really wish I could get back to it!
I have moved forward in The Perfect Stranger by Megan Miranda. I’m about half way done and enjoying this one because it’s keeping me guessing. I’ve been running during my lunch breaks so I haven’t been as skittish with the spooky feels this one gives me.

Recently finished: Same as last week. Probably nothing new here again for at least a week.

0451498631.01._SCLZZZZZZZ_SX500_

Reading next: My next audiobook is going to be The Ghosts of Eden Park by Karen Abbott. It’s been a bit since some good non-fiction so I’m looking forward to digging into this one!

Ghost

Currently reading: Nothing again with The Girl with Ghost Eyes by M.H. Boroson. We’re traveling this weekend and I’ll read this instead of a physical book if I get a spare second so maybe there will be some movement this week?
I think I read two pages from True History of The Kelly Gang by Peter Carey, so that’s something! Baby is starting to go to bed easier so I might be able to get back to this soon.
I have made good progress on The Perfect Stranger by Megan Miranda. I’m running more consistently which gives me good listening time. Though running in the dark and listening to this does make me jumpy!

Recently finished: Nothing this week. Probably not next week either. Eventually.

Reading next: It will be an audiobook, I can almost guarantee. I’m only a quarter through my current one so I have time to figure it out. I’ll decide next week.

Stranger

Currently reading: This week was not a good one for The Girl with Ghost Eyes by M.H. Boroson. Being back at work has made my ebook time all but disappear for now. I’ll have to think of some new ways to get this back into my rotation.
Not much for True History of The Kelly Gang by Peter Carey either. I read two pages one morning before the baby woke up. Small steps, right? I’m not sure they could get much smaller through, haha.
I finally started The Perfect Stranger by Megan Miranda! I’m not too far into it yet so I’ll hold my opinions for a bit but I’m excited to have a spooky read before Halloween!

RunningRecently finished: I wrapped up The Running Man by Richard Bachman (Stephen King) on Saturday. My husband is a huge help with the baby on the weekends when he gets his snuggle time in. That gave me time to garden and do some running which was a great time to wrap up this book. I’m still back and forth about how much I enjoyed this one. It didn’t blow me away, but it was still enjoyable. I’m giving it Four out of Five Stars for now, but I’ll reserve the right to change that the more I think about it. My review went up Monday so go check it out if you get a chance.

Reading next: I’m going to keep this blank for now. I seem so far away from finishing another book so I’ll take another look next week when books are hopefully moving along a bit.
