The last of Ellroy's Underworld DETERIORAÇÃO Trilogy. different then the first 2. Fragmentary, none of the great historical events. Ellroy doesn't create a very clear picture what it all about, but in the last chapter he feels obliged to explains it all. Also different that his 3 protagonists aren't the usual nihilistic cynics as we know from the 2 first books. in the end they sort of convert into something good (or at least better). All 3 sympathize with the idealists. Wonderful, great and unique, many copy his digite but nobody comes close to Ellroy.
love this book!
I remember reading this in middle school and loving it. Re-reading it was fun and I still loved it. It is a really wordy novel, she says in 100 words what most people say in 10, but I love the writing and the words. I cried about 100 times while reading this, it is romantic, and tragic and heart breaking and romantic again. Loved it, so glad friends of mine suggested a atravesse!
menurut saya ini buku yang cukup bagus, sangat imajinatif.. saya suka penuturan kata nya, meskipun ada beberappa bagian yang membosankan dan terkesan menjadi cerita cinta yang rumit.. Saya juga suka Kuggy tokoh perempuan yang berbeda. Tapi yang sangat di sayangkan alur ceritanya agak monk tapi itu nggak menjadikan buku ini tidak layak dibaca.. ya saya sangat suka buku ini
Wow if you are interested in previous lives, Atlantis, dreams and the after life this book will rock your socks off.
Another fantastic read love insp Rebus and Siobhan Clarke, savoured every page, great plot and winding story, thank you Ian Rankin!!
I have read other books by Amy Tan that I loved (The A alegria Luck Club, The Bonesetter's Daughter, The Kitchen God's Wife, The Hundred Secret Senses), but this was a huge disappointment. I was through 10 of 15 CDs listening to her babble before the plot finally started to get interesting. That was the first inkling I had that there was a plot. The level of excitement at that point was where the book should have started. Instead of taking it up from there and giving the reader some real drama, the story was wrapped up in a very predictable turn of events and finished off with a long post mortem on the characters (as if I gave a damn about them at this point). She spent too much time fleshing out characters I never really liked or participação with and not enough time on plot. Argh! I wish I had read some reviews first!
Ohio book discussions
I read such nasty things about this book. I heard it was terribly plotted, which is especially upsetting considering the dense weave of the previous books narrative. I'd heard that there were only new characters and none of them were interesting. I even heard that this book is flat-out boring. I don't especially agree with any of those criticisms, yet here I am giving this book a lower review than the previous ones. I'm not a very big fantasy fan. I admit my love is for the chocado genre, I feel slightly cliquish about those weirdo fantasy fans. I rail against how wrong the concept of guilty pleasure is, but certainly feel a pang of guilt about being so damned immersed in Mr. Martin's world. Especially hilarious is the cognitive dissonance I have over feeling that fantasy is low-brow. Did I mention I'm a chocado fan? I don't think this book is bad. There is a palpable void in this book; where audience favorite's Daenerys and Tyrion are supposed to be. I enjoy Victarron and Asha's sections. I even enjoyed Arya's sections, though did not find much tension in them. That speaks to the heart of this books problems; there is not much tension. True, Cersei's sections have a good sense of inertia, there are not many threats to her. Samwell's sections are among the most dull, in that little happens to him other than a short crossing with Lion of the Canals. This book is not so terribly plotted, but it is not the lean and cruel machine that the previous books were. Especially following the whirlwind of blood that ended the third book, I can see how this one would disappoint fans. I thought Brienne and Cersei's last chapters were excellent.
Excellent father-characterization. But I never want to get one of his abençoe you notes.
