4.0 out of 5 stars Great Book, long winded..., 5 Dec 2010
This review is from: The Swan Thieves (Paperback)
I am a huge fan of Elizabeth Kostova, The Historian is firmly on my top ten all time best books. I was very eager to get my hands on her second book. After reading it I have mixed feelings. I loved the plot, thought it was very different and interesting. However, she does take her descriptions to the page wasting extreme! You have to have a lot of patience if you want to actually get through this book, so if you dont I suggest you dont bother getting it. She could have cut down on the pages if she didn't go on and on and on with senic descriptions etc, it could and did get tedious! I did find that the end of the book did have a faster pace, and in the end I am glad I read it, as I did enjoy it.
