    PDF The Historian ePUB æ Ã hdizle.me historian book, The Historian PDFEPUBYou know you’ve been in school too long when you write a vampire novel in which Dracula’s ultimate threat is to force his victims to catalog his extensive library of antiue books On the other hand after finishing The Historian and its detailed Vlad the Impaler research I’m willing to consider that threat as akin to impalement If Kostova’s references to Henry James did not reveal her as an admirer of his then its sprawling prose vague plot and sexually confused characters would have While imitation of Henry James is not enough in itself to make me wish undeath on an author it sucked the blood out of this adventure Kostova writes The Historian in epistolary form primarily through letters from a father historian to a daughter presumably historian The greater par

    PDF The Historian ePUB æ Ã hdizle.me historian book, The Historian PDFEPUBTentatively my hand crept towards the mouse What dark and unholy specter could be contained in other people's reviews of Elizabeth Kostova's The Historian? I was filled with passive voiced dread as the link was clicked by me I was horrified to readxdragonlady's review My main problem with the book being that the author told the tale from so many different points of view but that they were each told in first person without giving the reader any notice as to who was telling the tale I don't understand why this book is on the bestseller's listI was aghast Could the novel I had just read really have been a confounding multi tiered multiple first person narrative with lack luster voices which the author clearly mistook for a clever attempt at recreating a sense of research?With much hesitation I read on I find myself thinking of my mother's comment after she read the Da Vinci Code that it was ok but she knew many oth

    PDF The Historian ePUB æ Ã hdizle.me historian book, The Historian PDFEPUBAm I destined for some kind of literary hell if I say I wish Dan Brown would rewrite this story with the spark and intensity of the Da Vinci Code?I think I read some review here on GoodReads that called this a book to be conuered You know one where after a time you feel so invested that you MUST finish it you must defeat the book you will NOT give up no matter how much you are suffering Whoever said that about Kostova's The Historian I salute youI kept telling my friends I was reading a book about hunting for Dracula through libraries across Europe and that it was about as exciting as it sounds I also ne

    PDF The Historian ePUB æ Ã hdizle.me historian book, The Historian PDFEPUB5 Stars—Favorite Book EverI read this for the first time back in college I found it in Bargain Books at Barnes and Noble and once I opened it I was hooked What was most intriguing was the “Note to the Reader” section I sat there literally arguing with myself about whether or not this was fiction or an actual history book Does the author not understand that she’s writing fiction? Wait does she think this story is real?? I needed to find out so I kept reading 600 pages later I am absolutely convinced that this story is real This book became the gift that I gave to everyone for whatever event called for a gift I gave a copy to my mother in law and she loved it We’re talking about the lady who had never read a single book that even mentioned a vampire in her life It became a sign of rebellion for her that she reveled in Whenever her uptight friends came over she
