The Historian
The Historian
by Elizabeth Kostova
Edition: Paperback
Price: £7.99

1.0 out of 5 stars Book in need of an editor., 25 April 2016
This review is from: The Historian (Paperback)
Good premise for a book.
The opening is engaging and the idea to use Stoker's technique to tell the story is a clever one as it quickly establishes an over worldly atmosphere.
The book then spends 400 pages too long in failing to develop the plot or the characters in leadingup to what you hope will be a heart stopping climax.
You deserve a heart stopping, blood chilling climax.
Sadly the one part of the book where excessive detaill and explanation may just be seen as a virtue is rushed and over before it has actually started.There is no tension at all and I found myself struggling not to skim through it in the way that I had found myself skimming many of the pages in the 500s.
This rushed climax, where the final battle with the Prince of Darkness himself is told in a few careless sentences is followed by an epilogue, which I suppose is meant to be enigmatic and maybe leave room for a sequel, but in reality is just a return to the boring directionless prose of the middle 500 pages.
The editor of this book needs sacking.

Adult and clever. Well played and produced but lacks the soul and emotion to really communicate with me and move me.

Packed full of catchy riffs and clever lyrics.
A decent addition to any collection of post Brit pop albums.


Autumn Killing (Malin Fors)
Autumn Killing (Malin Fors)
by Mons Kallentoft
Edition: Paperback
Price: £7.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Dark, poetic., 12 Aug. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
For me the best of the Mailn Fors books.
Some readers will find the voices off and the extended internal monologues a bit of a distraction, but Ithink they add to the atmosphere of the narrative. In this novel, the third of the series, I think Kallentoft has got the balance just right. The prose is beautiful, poetic and totally absorbing.

I think it is worth reading the series in order. You will get much more from the books that way.

Decent album in the style of the slower more thoughtful grown up later Oasis stuff.

Nothing really stand out and not really too original.

Noel will do better stuff and Oasis certainly did do better stuff.
