I love Oates so was determined to finish this book. It was difficult for me to "get into." I speed read through parts that I am still unsure why were incorporated into the story; the chess game, for instance. Why chess? I felt like I was missing an important point, but I think she must have felt like we needed to know he was a chess player. I went back thinking I'd made an unfair assessment and she might have hid something for me within the game.Nothing.

There was nothing beautiful in the story. Sometimes when you are reading something full of hatred, awfulness and disgusting imagery, like Alma putting her menstrual fluid on the guests' meat, it helps to have a periodic break. I kept hoping the author would throw me a bone. Just a little loveliness. But there really wasn't one single thing. So three stars for the effort I know it took her, but I really wanted to give it less for the pointless, depressing mess I had to slog through to get to the disappointing ending.

I'm a Joyce Carol Oates fan. Can't help it. Everything I ever read by this woman was intense, thought provoking and edgy. This 2003 novel is no exception.

Set in the author's familiar territory of upstate New York, this is the story of a clash of two individuals and two cultures. Joshua Siegl is a celebrated professor. His inherited wealth both protects and insulates him. He leads a reclusive life but his health is failing and he wants to hire an assistant.

Alma Busch is from a working class family in Pennsylvania and even though she is young, she has been used and mistreated by a long line of abusive men, the latest of which is Dmitri, a waiter in a café where Joshua Siegl goes to play chess. In her past, a gang of men once tattooed her just for the fun of it. One of the tattoos looks like a blemish on her check. And other tattoos are ugly cobwebs on her hands and neck. This young woman is also filled with hate. And now, it is all targeted towards Jews, even though she has never met any of them.

When Joshua Siegl hires Alma as his assistant, the stage is set for trouble.

Ms. Oates defines her characters well. Joshua Siegl has been so insulated that he is unaware of the young woman's hatred. And Alma is so blinded by hate that she is driven to acts of cruelty against him which includes tampering with his food, stealing items and boasting to her boyfriend about potentially murdering her benefactor.

I was saddened and disgusted by the story. But I was also fascinated. I just couldn't stop reading even though there were some parts that made me wince in horror. It didn't take me long to finish the book. The ending was sad, but inevitable. And also ultimately satisfying.

I know I will continue to be a Joyce Carol Oates fan. Though the years she has achieved a perfect mastery of her craft. I look forward to reading more of her books. But I know I will have to wait a while because I am always left disturbed and thoughtful and I can only handle that in small doses.

As far as The Tattooed Girl, however, I give it a high recommendation.

There were some very fine passages in this book, although harrowing -- a hospital sequence, a visit from the main character's sister. The characterizations are disturbing, but generally good. The main character, Joshua Siegl, is in his late thirties, and that is a very big mistake, since he seems to be, physically, at least ten years older, and judging from his speech, even older than that. I found myself imagining him as fiftyish. He's more believable that way. The female main character, an uneducated, ill-used youngish woman, is a hodgepodge of qualities, some well drawn, some not, although not unbelievable. The character of Siegl's sister is well done, but only up to a point. The author falls into her characteristic short-phrases-no-complete-sentences-dreamy style in places, but here it feels like a cheat, like she uses that style to fake transitions that would be hard to do in complete, grammatical sentences. Well, she writes fast, and here her technique is showing. The ending is a disappointment, but doesn't ruin the reading. Just seems as if the author got tired of writing this book, and decided to wrap it all up quickly. Read this if you like her work, otherwise, her short stories are much better, I think, than her novels (although this one is better than Middle Age).

The author tried very hard to show the gritty underside of life, valid if done well, but this book was unrelentingly dismal. She went for shock value to the point where the ugliness often felt gratuitous. The writing style bothered me as well. It consisted of ideas, with no real sentence structure, and at times it left one wondering to whom these thoughts(or were they proclamations?) were to be attributed.
The repeated description of the 'tattooed girl's' physical appearance, her body parts, was tedious. Her tattoos were far too frequently referred to, in exactly the same ways, as were her 'ponderous breasts'(I don't remember her exact description), her overall fleshiness, etc...I was surprised that this acclaimed author came out with such a poorly executed book.
Anayanis
A nice liberal half-Jewish intellectual living in the posh area of Rochester, New York (I didn't think Rochester had a posh area) afflicted with a mysterious illness (sounds like multiple sclerosis but we're told at one point it isn't) takes on an abused delinquent twenty year old dumb blonde from Centralia, Pennsylvania (where the underground fires burn) as his personal assistant.
Since this is Joyce Carol Oates you know before you buy it that you're going to get magnificient, thought-provoking, well-plotted prose. You also know that you're going to meet some bad people,that you will be shown how much evil lurks in the minds of men, that nice guys will finish last, and it's going to be a tad depressing. The trade-off is worth it.
I'd recommend it for a long flight in tourist class, or maybe a visit to Rochester, rather than bed or beach.

Amazing writing , intriguing story, couldn't stop reading once I started.
Another powerful book, with the kind of subject matter I am drawn to, by the superb author Joyce Carol Oates.
