These Violent Delights by Chloe Gong Summary
There’s a lot going on in this room. A mystery, a monster hunt, and the intricacies of Western imperialism in 1920s Shanghai is an elevator pitch; add a mystery, a monster hunt, and the complexities of Western imperialism, and you nearly have more than the elevator can carry. It’s tough to categorize These Violent Delights because of this. It isn’t quite a tragedy because, despite the fact that many very terrible things happen to its protagonists, we never dwell on them for long. Despite the intense tension between Juliette and Roma, it isn’t a romance since they rarely get a chance to pause and experience it.
The main characters run around the city with their minions in tow, investigating and snooping and generally causing more mayhem than they prevent. It’s one part detective story (with Juliette cast as the weary detective and Roma as the femme fatale) and one part heist as the main characters run around the city with their minions in tow, investigating and snooping and generally causing more mayhem than they prevent.
‘These Violent Delights’ is primarily a vivid portrayal of a rarely seen time and location.
These Violent Delights is, above all, a fascinating depiction of a rarely documented period and location. I walked in knowing very little about Shanghai in the early twentieth century and was impressed by how much the colonial influences had made it feel like a Western metropolis. It wasn’t dubbed “Paris of the East” for nothing. The results of historical events flood into the streets, pulling the city in many different directions — the Opium Wars, the development of communism, the ongoing racist war between the French and the English – it’s all here on the page, knotted up and convoluted.
The storyline is also a little complex, and the reader is sometimes a few steps ahead of whatever revelation the characters are making, giving the story a lagging feel. The characters, on the other hand, are intriguing, providing LGBT representation as well as a great deal of moral depth as they all battle with the violence that is demanded of them. Overall, they’re a fun group of people to spend time with. I was reminded of a Six of Crows-style ensemble robbery drama, however this one focused more on the primary two protagonists.
These Violent Delights made me wonder if it was actually a young adult book. The actual teenage emotions are largely found in the history, as we hear about Juliette and Roma’s early infatuation and eventual breakup. They both feel more like world-weary grownups in the present of the novel, exercising their authority and understanding that who they truly are doesn’t matter because their power comes with harsh responsibility. However, I believe that, in these uncertain times, that atmosphere will appeal to both young and adult readers.
