Interesting multi-faceted characters
18 February, 2014
The most interesting thing about the about the book were the very interesting character. You keep wondering about the characters an never seem to understand them fully.
The novel has two stories moving in two different periods ... 18th and 21st century. One exploring the true sequence of events behind the other. Wish there was more 'interaction' between the stories in the novel.
An interesting thing in the novel was to read a particular sequence of events more than once ... from perspective of different characters. It makes for in interesting reading when you see the same thing from different point of view.
There are times when the language degenerated (in first person narrations) but then that was on account of the character. But, I felt that it was not really necessary.
The climax was not 'climactic' enough. The story simply ended tying loose ends without any great sense of excitement. A treasure hunt kind of novel without an exciting climax is rare. And definitely not a good idea.
My English teacher would be mad at the book - there were a couple of grammatical errors here and there. Not many, but a few are enough to make my English teacher mad.
Overall, an interesting book. Could have been better.
