Alexander Chee ´ 2 Read

Očaravajući roman o burnom putu jedne mlade žene od cirkuske jahačice i kurtizane do svetski poznate diveLilijet Bern je senzacija Pariske opere legendarni soprano sa svim priznanjima osim životne uloge koju svaki pevač želi kako bi postao besmrtan Kad joj takvu ulogu ponude ona shvata sa strepnjom da se libreto zasniva na. This is a masterfully written book Chee just is masterful I loved this novel I loved the density of the prose and the almost obsessive attention to detail and the intricate plot that never stopped even when the last line had been written I do think some of the recaps of the various operas was just a bridge too far like let s wrap it up friend These recaps though full of interesting detail made the otherwise lively story drag a bit but I mean still this book is masterful ueen of the Night is operatic in all senses of the word The drama is so very dramatic The women are full of depth and humanity and archness and are so powerfully written There is so much story here and I absorbed all of it greedily

Characters The ueen of the Night

The ueen of the Night

Kako bi preživela ona od cirkuske jahačice postaje kurtizana od caričine služavke pevačica a sve vreme je upletena u komplikovanu mrežu ljubavi dužnosti i političkih intrigaPored sudbine istorijskih ličnosti roman prati i Lilijet i ulogu Kraljice noći koja može da joj osigura ugled – ili je uništi tajnama koje otkri. This book was like a vacation that has lasted a little too long it s great while it s happening but you re glad when it s over and you can go homeThis really was a fascinating story but man oh manthere were parts that I really struggled to get through because it was just plain boring I m sure someone who has an interest in opera would enjoy this book than I did I confess I was lost with a lot of the references to operas and all things musicI did like the story but the one phrase that I just feel sums up this book is tragic drama This woman s life is just one turmoil after another I enjoyed the historical aspects of the book and the author is fantastic at setting the scene and creating the visual to put the reader in this time period My critiue though would be that sometimes overload just euals boredom A little less rambling and descriptive prose would have made for a compelling story for this reader I was trying to decide how many stars to give this and ultimately decided to go with three which is my personal standard for a book that I enjoyed and I feel is worth the read but that I wouldn t gush over It IS a good story just be warned that it is not a fast paced one and it gets bogged down in parts 2016 reading challenge category a book that is than 500 pages
