Weeks 20 and 21 - 2017

What I Read

An Again on The Historian, by Elizabeth Kostova

For a period of time I was caught up in Elizabeth Kostava’s big-selling novel, The Historian.

Ok, I am well aware of its failings, that denouement in the crypt for one – I could not believe how perfunctory it was. 262 more words

The Shadow Land

As much as I enjoy non-fiction, if I really want to learn about something I’ll try to find a novel based around the subject or theme, especially when it comes to travel. 554 more words

Book Review: The Historian by Elizabeth Kostova

Overall Rating: 3.5/5.00
Do I recommend: Yes

Well, not many books have left me as flabbergasted as this one has. It’s not that the book is really confusing or the plot doesn’t make sense throughout, etc, it’s just that I’m having a hard time forming a solid opinion about this book. 1,408 more words
