To say more I would need a spoiler alert and so, rather than trying to entice you to read the book by giving away the story, I will suggest you pick up the book instead.
This is a fantastic story, imagining the depths we will go to escape our pain, and what the results would be if we removed all the negative memories from our minds.
Would you still be you without your memories? Would you feel as though a part of you was missing? Would you be less of a person because part of your life has disappeared?
Bridget Collins has created a mesmerizing story; I found myself immediately drawn into it. The characters are so real. There is hope and dreams, avarice and pain, drama and mystery, and characters who wish to do good and ones who delight in harming others.
I loved this book and highly recommend it. View all 26 comments. Apr 22, Donna rated it liked it Shelves: gothic , romance , coming-of-age , fantasy.
I was excited to begin this book with its interesting premise and the promise of a blend of fantasy and reality.
And I was not disappointed at first. Those memories would then be kept safe in beautiful books the binders fashioned for I was excited to begin this book with its interesting premise and the promise of a blend of fantasy and reality.
This also kept the books safe from physical harm, since if a book were ever to be destroyed, the memories in it would return to the person.
Bindings could only be done for those giving their permission. However, this rule did not take into account those being coerced into giving their permission.
And then, there were those people desperate enough to sell their memories, even the good ones, to those same unscrupulous binders.
Such books were often indistinguishable from those labeled novels. Novels, unlike books, were clearly filled with fictitious contents and were permissible to be sold.
All these elements of binding were a rich field in which to grow an abundant story. But this is where my disappointment came in.
The author never did explore many of these elements in any depth beyond how they connected to her main characters. She hardly explored that world at large or the act of binding itself and the morality involved.
Instead, the book focused on the relationship between the two main male characters, to the exclusion of all else, in the second and third parts, comprising the bulk of this story.
Even my memories of my life before that—last spring, last winter—were tinged with the same gangrenous shadow, as if nothing was healthy anymore.
How he came to be in this state and why his family acted toward him as they did and why a wealthy young man named Lucian Darnay, visiting his uncle on a neighboring farm, disquiets him so much—all these elements were teeming with gothic mystery which added to the tension and suspense and made me feel for Emmett Farmer.
Eventually, Emmett is sent away to train as a book binder, something he feels is a punishment. This is where the story really took off for me as Emmett trains with an old woman named Seredith who lives out in the marshes and whom people think of as a witch.
So what happened after this point that had me feeling disappointed in this book? In parts two and three, the relationship between Emmett and Lucian dominated the story.
I felt this was detrimental to the story at large and to the premise it was built on. I enjoyed their relationship, but the details of it became repetitive and drawn out, and very little about bookbinding was explored outside of their lives.
The morality and philosophy of bookbinding would have made for an interesting discussion among the characters who might question their world a little more and get the reader thinking along with them.
Instead, I was a bystander in the story, able to sympathize with the characters, but not able to fully immerse myself in all that was happening after part one.
Villainous characters, likewise, were one dimensional. It was as if the author had used all her energy on Emmett and Lucian and had little left over for much else besides describing the environment around them.
In this, the writing is highly descriptive and often poetic, which is both a compliment and a complaint. On the positive side, the author is an expressive and extremely observant person who details her story in beautiful and surprising ways.
The fire had nearly gone out; ash had grown over the embers like moss. I moved my fingers through the focused ellipse of lamplight, letting it sit above my knuckle like a ring.
When I sat back, it shone on the patchwork quilt, picking out the curl of a printed fern. It teetered on the edge of ridiculousness at one point when one character spat a huge wad of phlegm and another character watched it land on the ground in the shape of a leaf.
This is not an observation that anyone would probably have in this instance or one a reader would care to have thrown their way.
So this book has many good things to recommend it—a fascinating premise, sympathetic main characters, plus one very good supporting character, many instances of beautiful and atmospheric writing, a gothic style setting, and plenty of mystery.
But the relationship between the two main characters took center stage after part one, which I feel took something away from the general story and left no room for the author to explore the act of binding or its effect on that society, especially with a change in viewpoint.
I do think this would make a nice first book in a series if, in later books, the art of bookbinding was actually the focus and practiced in numerous circumstances beyond the few times portrayed in this book.
Jan 15, Katie. And the gays get a happy ending!!!! Emmett is a sick young man, but he is handed off by his parents to a binder - a woman who can take traumatic memories and bind them in books to make you forget.
She has specifically requested Emmett as her apprentice. Emmett is a conflicted, flawed but wonderful young man with good morals.
It is a overlapping book of thematic schemes but they are woven beautifully together in this novel. I loved this book.
The plot, the way the plot developed, the well rounded and fleshed out characters, amazing start to the year! View all 7 comments.

Brilliant story, very cleverly written. I liked the first pages best, after that it became grim. The ending was satisfactory, but the book was completely different from what I expected and I'm still not sure if that is a good thing or not.

This was such a book. Emmett Farmer is to become a book binder. This is no wonderful thing for him since this is a profession that is feared, filled with suspicion and ill omens, and one he is loath to consider, and yet here he is apprenticed to Seredith.
She is an old binder and although Emmett has been drawn to books, he Some books entice you with their details , their wonderfully alluring premise, and work their way so very well into your imagination, that you are ever so sad to see them end.
She is an old binder and although Emmett has been drawn to books, he fears them for they contain something so special and dangerous, memories.
Seredith is a master craft person, and she leads Emmett down the path to becoming one who can capture memories and erase them from the bearer's mind.
There is evil afoot in the guise of tradesmen, who use this skill and what the books contain to their own wants.
While Seredith is a master, teaching Emmett how to weave these stories into beautiful bound books, others are out for their own gratification and Emmett is about to fall into their web.
This is a mysterious story, one that brings together love in the case of Emmett and Lucien. It is a story of family, of mystery, and of how our memories erased can change exactly who we are and how we face the future unknowing of the dangers that have been erased.
Bridget Collins evokes a world of mystery, one of magic where as the story weaves back and forth through Emmett's life, his family, and of course his interactions with Lucien.
We are taken into a place where memory reigns, where a secret relationship can bring ruin, and where books are feared.
I recommend this story as a well written, compelling tale that takes the reader on a journey that is filled with danger, magic, characters that are vivid, evil, and loving, and a wonderfully authentic different adventure.
It's a journey well worth taking. Each book in this world contains the wiped memories, most often horrible, of one person.
Destroy that book by fire, and restore the horrible memory. Or, in rarer instances, destroy that book and restore destroyed lives. Despite coming from these different worlds, they cross paths as teenagers.
The book has three parts, with part I moving slowest. Many pieces of the puzzle lock into place in part II, and here, The Binding is tense, exciting, and eventually heart-rending.
Part III keeps the momentum going with high suspense. The simply fascinating main characters pull at heartstrings, and unremitting suspense keeps pages turning.
The plot takes unexpected turns and is peopled with vivid characters set in 19th century England. The Binding has many strengths.
Its biggest may be the fully developed story arc of main characters Elliott and Lucian, from their late teens into adulthood.
It may be tempting for an author to rush through to the most exciting events or make a plot point happen conveniently, but Collins crafted this arc with patience.
Then it almost seems she went the extra mile and threw all kinds of wrenches into her story, letting it lead her. This is the best kind of story: one that hurts terribly to say goodbye to.
View all 38 comments. I meant to write an actual review a couple days ago already, but I'm still lacking the words for the time being.
All I know is that this is one of these rare, magical books that pulled me in to take a piece of my heart and never give it back again.
It's almost impossible for most readers, me included, to name just one book when asked about a favorite title.
But this one has definitely made it onto the short list I usually give people. Jan 23, Eilonwy rated it really liked it Shelves: heartbreaking , character-driven , heartwarming , good-worldbuilding , quiltbag , beautifully-written , good-mythology , love-story.
Attention: This is a book probably best read cold. And I hardly dare say more. I really enjoyed this book. Part Two confirmed the foreshadowing of a Big Reveal.
Part Three changes to a different POV and different tense Parts One and Two are written in past tense; Part Three is present tense , which really annoyed me for a while, but once I adjusted to it, I enjoyed the final section as much as the first two.
I loved the writing in this book. I found the writing visually vivid and strongly emotionally engaging. Many other reviewers have felt quite the opposite, so this is clearly just a matter of personal taste and connection to the words.
And yet I found the grimness beautiful and compelling. At its foundation, this is a love story. And I was rooting for that love through the entire book.
And I suspect I might have enjoyed this book as much as I have because most of my friends have 3-starred it and written very unenthusiastic reviews -- I honestly thought about just not reading it after looking at those, and went into it with very low expectations.
So I ended up very pleasantly surprised. When I read the synopsis it sounded like Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind which is a favorite film of mine.
It's about a couple who have broken up and erase each other from their memories to forget the heartbreak they suffer from. The twist on that concept is that the memories being erase Title: The Binding Series: Standalone Author: Bridget Collins Release date: January 7, Genre: historical fiction, fantasy I had such high hopes for this book and I'm so disappointed that I didn't love it.
The twist on that concept is that the memories being erased are being bound inside books. I loved the concept and I couldn't wait to explore it more.
This was quite a bit darker than I expected. A lot more. In fact there could be triggers for readers in this book, view spoiler [rape, sexual abuse, suicide hide spoiler ] and I don't think the synopsis properly conveys what to expect in this one on several levels.
The Binding is set in a world sometime in the late s, early s, 60 years after "The Crusades. This war which persecuted book binders as witches establishes the society as a puritanical one, painted as intolerant and prejudiced against the unknown.
Emmett Farmer has always had a curiosity for books, but his parents were scandalized when they saw him reading one as a child.
He was sharply struck and forbidden to ever have one in his possession again. However, one day they receive a summons from a local binder who wants him as her apprentice and they ship him off to her remote home out of fear.
Emmett has no wish to leave his family, but his mental "illness" has been a burden on his family and he believes it may be for the best. Once at the Binder's, Emmett soon learns that books are not just simple stories recorded for the reader's enjoyment as he previously believed.
He never understood the stigma attached to them, but suddenly it's all becoming more clear. The people who arrive in the middle of the night, wracked with mental anguish leave in a calm stupor.
Numb ghosts of themselves, they're ushered out as if starting a new chapter in their lives. The previous pages stricken out of existence, like a big red pen crossing through mistakes better left out of the final version.
The books Seredith creates are secreted away and protected at all costs, but not all Binders have her integrity.
The irony here is that she is virtually the only binder who was shown to the reader who wasn't corrupted by greed and malice. Yet she was the one who was scorned the most by everyone for her old-fashioned, so-called useless practices in binding.
Those whom the world should fear the most were the devil sitting next to you at a dinner party. Collins constructed the Binding process that's mired in darkness, so much so that I wasn't able to detect any benefit from it all.
Seredith claimed it was serving people, "doctoring their souls" so they could find peace. But I saw no evidence that there was anything good about this magic bestowed on them.
You don't doctor a soul by trying to erase pain from existence. Through our worst mistakes and trials in life we are taught vital lessons that help us grow.
As we see in the book, the people who are bound are tormented by nightmares that creep in. Sleep and wake bring them foggy feelings of disquiet that could be triggered at any time.
There's no healing in an artificial erasing of pain. It's bottled up inside, silently trapping you in your subconscious.
The problem for me was that though the hero struggled with his conscience over being "called" to binding, in the end he would continue to seek out work in the practice.
Even after seeing the dark underbelly of the beast and how it wreaked havoc on his own life. As the storyline wears on, you discover characters who use binders to hide their sins so they may continue to do harm.
And the binders who serve them regularly can't be bothered to care about the consequences of their actions on the victims. They weave through the upper class in the finest silks, garments paid for with the suffering of those not worth a second thought.
Classism is a strong theme in the book. The poorer "peasants" are forced to sell their memories out of desperation, and their struggles to survive are far removed from the elite whose money buys silence and respect.
One aspect to The Binding I thought was kind of funny was the author's tongue in cheek shot at fiction books.
There were "fakes" otherwise known as novels that were mocked as useless and silly. Because after all, who would want to read made up stories about heartbreaking things?
It makes one wonder who would write them. People who can spend days writing a long sad lie without going insane.
The writing style of Collins was especially flowery and descriptive. I typically enjoy this style, so it didn't slow down my reading pace at all.
But I did find that after a few chapters in I saw patterns in the descriptions that because extremely repetitive.
I'm not exaggerating when I say that every time a scene changed, someone looked out a window, woke up, went to sleep, walked into a room They observed a patch of light and how it appeared.
How it illuminated someone, how it moved, faded, sparkled, consumed shadows. Sadly, my biggest grievances with the story was the romance and the ending.
The romance was love triangle with the hero's sister as the third party. It was a forbidden romance where feelings were kept quiet in the hopes that they would go away.
A major problem for me was that his sister was innocent of veiled intentions and misconceptions, and inevitably she was a victim when truths were revealed.
The two main characters snuck around in secret and their actions were a major betrayal of trust. In the second half of the book the love interest became a snobby, cowardly, and unlikable person.
I understood that circumstances and home life caused this, but their bitterness and anger made them hard to root for. At one point, they knowingly caused a man's murder by his own careless words and couldn't bring themselves to try to help him.
The story sank deeper and deeper into desperation and gloom and I sped on waiting for a resolution to it all. The ending I give one star.
It was pitifully abrupt and so unsatisfying. I wanted the villain of the book to get his comeuppance and instead we saw absolutely nothing happen.
It was as if the ending was hacked off right in the middle of a scene leaving you with a feeling of deprivation.
I found some things about the story to be compelling, but the execution overall wasn't for me. However, I'm sure many will love the intriguing concept, so I urge you to read it and judge for yourself.
View all 6 comments. May 27, Anna Luce rated it liked it Shelves: good-reads , reviews. People who can't go anywhere else. I was genuinely intrigued by the premise an alternative history in which book binders get rid of people's 'bad' memories?
Throughout the first section of The Binding Bridget Collins' keeps her cards close to her chest. We gather that the setting is in an alternative 19th-century England and that our narrator, Emmett Farmer, has just recovered from a mysterious illness.
When Seredith, an old and secluded binder, requests that he become her apprentice, Emmett is left no choice and has to leave his parents' farm.
While working under Seredith's roof Emmett briefly meets a young man whose appearance and behaviour stick to his mind.
When Seredith finally reveals Emmett what 'book binding' truly is, he's uneasy about the whole thing. The second and third section of the book take us down slightly different paths, although I must admit that the final part of the novel felt like a rehash of the first part.
I liked the ambiguity created by Emmett's not knowing what happened to him or why Lucian Darnay's face haunts him so.
The book binding itself raises some thought-provoking questions about consent, and the characters do discuss the ethics of erasing someone's memory.
The setting is rudimentary: vaguely historical, with little about this England's history, and the narrative mostly focus on the class divide between those like Emmett and those like Lucian, without really expanding on other aspects of this 'alternative' English society.
A few characters mention terms such as the 'Crusades' or 'deportation' but other than that we have little information about this country.
I would also have liked at one point or another to have more details about the book binding itself when did it start?
The romance was a bit disappointing too. One of them always seemed to hate the other, and I couldn't really see why all of a sudden they were in love.
The whole plot involving their horrible families was frustrating. As if! The story seems to fall into a pattern where Emmett and Lucian are made to suffer.
They are sad, and sad, and some sad some more. Towards the end they both do some questionable and out-of-character things, seemingly disregarding the safety and lives of other people The story didn't feel all that 'solid', there were some rather shaky aspects that made sense for 'plot reason', too much time was spent on the two leads mistrusting one another, the few secondary characters were pretty one-dimensional, and the final part went all over the place, and eventually lead to a rushed ending that left so many things unresolved.
Still, Collins' does create an intriguing atmosphere and the changes in tone and pace in the story kept things interesting.
All in all, I liked it more than not and I would definitely read something else by Collins. View all 3 comments. Jun 03, Sara rated it really liked it Shelves: historical-fiction , fiction , lgbtq , fantasy.
To fully enjoy The Binding, I feel as though you need to go into it knowing as little of the plot as possible - just know that I fell completely into this world where books consist of memories, given freely, but often lamented.
For is it easier to feel nothing, or grieve for a moment you can't remember? The plot is slow building, told over three parts, as we initially follow Emmett as he recovers from an unknown sickness and is taken in by a book binder as an apprentice.
In this world, book binde To fully enjoy The Binding, I feel as though you need to go into it knowing as little of the plot as possible - just know that I fell completely into this world where books consist of memories, given freely, but often lamented.
In this world, book binders are seen as suspicious and untrustworthy individuals, with witch like abilities to capture memories into books.
It was an interesting blend of historical fiction with a hint of fantasy that doesn't overwhelm the plot. We know right from the start of the story that something has happened to Emmett, but he can't seem to remember what it is, or why the book binder has called him away from the family farm.
He's lost without really knowing why, aimlessly taking up the craft of binding books as his master informs him that he has a natural talent for it.
This initial part is confusing, as the reader knows as little about what is going on as Emmett himself does and a lot of the plot is spent building up this world without really giving any explanations.
It was frustrating, but perfectly reflected Emmett's own attitude and lack of direction. We come to see Emmett as someone who loves his family with his whole heart, and just wants to do what's best, but it feels like there's something missing about his character.
As though there's a whole layer of himself that's been laid bare and then stripped away. As though he's been bound.
The story takes a completely different turn from part 2, switching to first person perspective and diving head first into an emotional roller coaster.
Everything I loved about this story would definitely be considered spoilers, but the characters crept up on me just as they do on Emmett.
It took me completely by surprise, and I was delighted and taken in by the story of what happened over that fateful summer. When we first see him from Emmett's perspective early on in the book he's an inconsequential character who Emmett doesn't seem to know, and barely acknowledges.
But you feel that there's something there, just out of reach, between the two. A deeper connection.
He's a broken man by this point. But that summer Because of Emmett - pure, naive and wholesome Emmett. The forbidden love between them, as Emmett struggles with his feelings for Lucien and his warring conscience about Alta, where beautifully written and had me completely enraptured.
The revelation that Lucien has used a book binder to erase Emmett from his memories how very Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind just brought part 1 into a whole new context.
I even had to go back and reread the first part so I could take in the subtle clues I'd missed. In the 3rd part we follow Lucien's perspective and see that he shares an extremely complicated relationship with his vile and abusive father.
A father who gaslights him on a regular basis, making him feel as though he's nothing and no one. A coward with no future of his own, someone who could never be loved.
Got very little out of 'The Binding' sad to say. One point in its favour is some atmosphere in the lighting, that is too far and between and is wasted by most of it being drab or too dark, a too compact setting, haphazard editing and some photography that induces nausea.
Direction is at best pedestrian and this does affect the pacing, which is sluggish throughout, and the direction of the actors. Excepting the lead actress, who is serviceable, the cast look uncomfortable and inexperienced and the character interaction is very bland and sometimes random.
From start to finish, 'The Binding' badly lacks tension or suspense, which immediately dilutes the thriller element.
Nothing scares and it all feels too safe, which is why there is so much predictability. Everything is easily foreseeable long before it happens and the pacing is just too dull and the atmosphere too anaemic.
The script never sounds natural and the cheese factor is high and the interest factor low as can be.
The story is ruined by being paper thin, useless padding and a very dull pace. It did feel too much like a short film stretched out to feature length with nowhere near enough content to fill it.
At least it didn't leave me confused though. The characters are never interesting, even with few attempts to which are so flimsily developed that it is difficult to care for any of them, and frustrate with the way they behave.
So many stupid and illogical character behaviours here matched by the far-fetched ending. Concluding, a very weak film but not terrible.
