There were moments that I wanted to cry for the sheer beauty of this story. Then there were moments when everything that had gotten so important to me over the course of a few dozen pages, threatened to shatter. And my heart pounded in my throat as my eyes feverishly followed the MC, a haunted Dr. And ungh!

So around 4 PM during that workday you know the time , I felt so dull and numb that I decided it would be a good idea to research lobotomies. I thought I knew what they entailed. I also assumed that they were nothing more than a black page in the history of medical science, quickly fixed and shoveled underneath the carpet. I was wrong. God, was I wrong. I will spare you the details, so let me give you some details here. After lots and lots of practice on poor sods, about 10! He lobotomized her in when she was The most probable reason?
Rosemary became a bit rebellious and moody in her teenage years. It was suggested that a lobotomy could make her more manageable. The operation sure was a success, because the young woman was basically left with the mental capacity of an infant. She spent the rest of her life in an institution.
Not that this is a horrifying tale! Oh no, not at all! That delicious Goth atmosphere that accompanies our images of Victorian asylums for the dangerously insane, lunatics and those guilty of being.. A man who is not only delightfully British in his behavior, but also a product of his God fearing era and thus firmly strapped into a mental straitjacket of Christian dogmas.
Will he be able to resist a beautifully innocent and intriguing young man then? One who ever so subtly and seemingly completely unknowingly nestles himself underneath his skin? Also, note that if you have difficulty handling characters who do not exactly behave morally appropriate in your eyes or in an otherwise fluffy and friendly manner, this book will not be for you.
Personally, I found being in Dr. His inner battle with instincts and intense emotions versus ethically correct behavior was realistically portrayed and more than anything intriguing. This made the last line of When The Music Stops and the epilogue all the more disappointing for me. View all 98 comments.

You know when you finish a book and you just stare at the kindle and keep clicking the doo-dad hoping for something more, just one more sentence, one more word even, just more Then there is no more but you are still staring at the freaking page! Just breathing and staring, and thinking about everything you read swallowing back the lump in your throat, all the while knowing that it was one of the most beautiful stories you have ever read. Well, that just happened to me! John T Fuller ha You know when you finish a book and you just stare at the kindle and keep clicking the doo-dad hoping for something more, just one more sentence, one more word even, just more John T Fuller has created an outstanding novella here.
Set in the early 20th Century. Dr Daniel Archer is our narrator; he is a physician at Link Hill mental institution who battles with his pious conscience and professional ethic when he develops a dubious affection for one of his young patients. This in itself is an appalling look at an era of terrible treatments and abuses against the mentally handicapped.
Paroles When The Music Stops
When Mr White begins to respond to the Doctors treatment, through music and attention we discover his talent for mimicry; to draw, dance and play any instrument. This spurs Archer. Could Mr White feel the same way?

Does he want the same thing? The writing is faultless and enthralling. This novella encapsulates everything you could want in a story, and then some. Whatever moral issues I questioned about what the Doctor was doing, I knew it was right. The kindness and compassion he shows and the fierce protection over Mr White is a testament to the man he really is. It manages to portray a really surprisingly tender love story without ever dulling down the terror of what doctors used to do to their fellow human beings in those asylums. Fuller is a genius story teller. A must buy author for me.

Madness is fascinating, the idea of a mind turning on itself or giving up, losing all sense of purpose and identity and desire. Humans are appallingly fragile. I believe very little separates us the sane from them the broken. Archer coaxes his mute, fragile mental patient, dubbed Mr. White, view spoiler [out of his perceived madness. The desire between them is uncertain at first, possibly one-sided, to the point where I wondered if Archer wasn't taking advantage of White, something Archer himself worries about.
The second thing I love is the writing really, honestly this is 1.

It's romantic, poetic, entrancing. From the first page to the last it kept me riveted. Some examples: To keep him cooped up here is like trapping a butterfly in a green glass bottle - surrounded by darkness he is iridescent.
The doctor won't say how he found out head cradled passively in his lap, singing softly enough to him not to wake the man next door but as long as the phonograph plays on repeat White is still and silent It's only when the music stops that he begins to howl. With one hand he gently cups the young man's jaw, strokes his thumb softly across the swell of White's lower lip in a gesture he knows is a little too like begging.
Looking up into White's face, the doctor feels like his heart might burst; he is recognized special, beloved My third love is the characters. Archer's inner struggle, his intense compassion for White, his gentleness - all make him exceedingly sympathetic. White could be a passive character but, no, his every response, or lack of response, is what drives Archer and the story.
Even in his silence, he expresses plenty-a love of sweets and music, a fear of spiders, talents for mimicry in dancing and drawing. It's a novella, and it provides just the right amount of character and plot. I'm not saying it couldn't be expanded. I'm saying it doesn't need to be. Even the epilogue could have been left out; the story would have more impact imo if it ended view spoiler [with White saying Archer's name for the first time - "Why am I doing this?
I must be mad. I must say though, I did tear up at the characters' deaths in the epilogue, especially when White died shortly after Archer. I couldn't imagine either of them living on without the other. Loved it madly even. View all 80 comments. They always seem so detached to me, and this one especially. Maybe it works great with the story and everything, but I really don't care, I don't like reading present tense POV and that's that.
Thanks for the recs guys, I'm sure I would have liked it if it was normally written :D. View all comments. Yeah, I didn't need to read any further.

I don't have it in me today for much of a review, but if you can stand some moral ambiguity in your stories, I highly recommend this one. Maybe after I re-read it, which is definitely going to happen, I'll write more. View all 3 comments. Nov 01, Karla rated it liked it. View all 4 comments.

When the Music Stops is a story set in a Victorian lunatic asylum, following the actions of Dr Archer who becomes infatuated with a patient. Wuthering Heights is full of repellent characters and actions as well, but the reason that works is that they're never portrayed as sweet fluffy nice people, we're not supposed to sympathise with them in the same way as we do with decent people in nice romantic comedies.
The whole reason stories like that work is because the characters are so fascinatingly horrible, and it's sort of the same here to a lesser extent. We see what Archer is up to, and we know how staggeringly inappropriate it is for doctors to behave that way towards patients - but Archer knows it as well, and that makes the story. I can't remember the last time I read a character who's this full of juicy Victorian repression and self-loathing. It's all so English and stiff, I love things like this. It's like erotic Merchant Ivory, with straitjackets instead of corsets. It's honestly not just a straightforward story turning the institutional rape of a man who can't consent into something sweet and romantic, which I really would have a massive problem with.
We start to see fairly early on that Mr White, the patient, might be more in control of himself than he seems to be, and it's a really interesting layer to the story and their relationship. This is what makes Archer so easy to sympathise with - we can see exactly why he forms this attachment with White, and how he struggles against it then struggles to come to terms with how it's not going away.
It's a sort of horror as well, which I somehow wasn't expecting the first time I read it I know what went on in Victorian asylums. The story is so clever in holding up these two things that we can all pretty much agree are horrific - doctors getting off with patients, and the "treatments" and conditions of asylums of the time - and making us re-evaluate our opinions. It's not always a very pleasant read, but it's compelling and beautiful and sickening and erotic and exciting and dramatic in just the right mix to make it unforgettable.
And the scene with the chocolate and the finger-sucking in Chapter 5 made me need a wipe down. Just saying. Inappropriate erotic historical romance with a happy ending? If you're even slightly intrigued by any part of this review, please please give the story a go. It's fantastic. View all 7 comments.

Wow, that was pretty intense.
It was build mostly from scoria and brick. How can something with that beauty be made from the ugliest of materials? It is said energy cannot be created or destroyed. The same with material. You have to be a real genius to manage to make that preciosity from such poor components: a doctor, a madman, an asylum. What good can result from that? But he communicates. He is not even aware of his situation. But he understands. The madman was so lovely and cute there is no way the doctor can resist, above all when the doctor is lonely and isolated. His thoughts are sick.
Not only professionally speaking, but personally. But this childish madman stirs something within him that he really misses in his life. The Gothic atmosphere is almost physical. I could feel the dark stones under my fingers, the shadows moving on heavy or non-existent furniture, and even the unmentioned ghosts. The claustrophobic environment wraps this rising love as pure as a newborn in dense dust and flickering oil lamps light that dims more than illuminates. It is astonishing the sensuality of the carnal scenes. I could almost feel it like a knife opening my insides in a way that meet the outside.
It turned my skin inside-out as easily as cutting warm butter. The ending is a bit rushed. That last sentence would have been the icing on the cake and maintaining the mystery and intrigue and the promise would have leave you wanting more, but without letting the feeling fall from the zenith.

Pure beauty. There is no ugly detail here, only the ugly reality. Every word and feeling is calculated and measured like poetry. View all 10 comments.

I thought I was going to die toward the end. And then the last line. I'm dying. So good. So beautiful. Wanna cry. Loeder's review says it all. Read it for something that makes sense. I'm still waving my hands around and babbling in excitement. So good! Can't speak! Hugging Kindle! Thank you, Lena! Has this author written more? View all 19 comments.

I often felt more connected with the characters in them than long novels, and therefore when they ended I was left aching for more, and like an unfulfilled wish, despite how much irrational or impossible it was, I couldn't help being frustrated.
And it is exactly the case with this little perfection of a story. First off, I have to say that I'm very impressed by the author's writing. It's superb, fantastic, addicting, everything you would think about the kind of writing that sucked you into the story right after a few first lines, kept you raptured and mesmerized for the rest of it, and probably never ever would forget about.
It's pure genius, simple at that. It is, however, not the only admirable feature. The characters are amazingly well-drawn, complexly multi-layered and excellently developed.
