4.0 out of 5 stars The Luminaries-beware of deception!, 6 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Luminaries (Kindle Edition)
I raced through this book, as I found it a real page-turner-however,when I had finished,I realised I had some unanswered questions!
Therefore I re-read it at a slower pace,this time paying particular attention to the dates and the astral calendar, which I had ignored before.

My advice to anyone starting to read this great book is:
1. Keep an open mind
2. Don't believe everything people say-they may be lying or be mis-informed.
3. Pay attention to the dates and the sequence of events if you can.

This book is cleverly written but not in chronological order so you have to have your wits about you.

I also found it a fascinating account of the Gold rush in New Zealand-something I knew nothing about.
I highly recommend it.

Margaret Drabble is a very competent novelist and it is a delight to read her prose-however,this story was just a little too long for me.

This is a beautifully illustrated copy of the play-if you love Arthur Rackham, you will love this book.
The play is enhanced with these illustrations, I think.
Magical.

Enjoyed it enormously-characters were so well drawn and there is humour too. Amazing how convoluted the legal system was then.

Quite interesting re the dental practice and all his social angst,but did tend to drag a bit with all the religious detail.
Certainly makes you take dental flossing more seriously!

4.0 out of 5 stars A Tale of 2 Cellos, 14 July 2014

A Tale of Two Cellos is beautiful., especially the playing of the haunting Little Beggar Boy by Piazzolla. This is a lovely CD to have as background music but also to listen to in its own right.
