Любовница смерти

free read Любовница смерти free read Любовница смерти ð PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free download · PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB é Boris Akunin There's been rising concern in Moscow over a wave of suicides among the city's young bohemians An intrepid newspaper reporter Zhemailo begins to uncover the truth behind the phenomenon that the victims are linked by a secret society the Lovers of Death But Zhemailo is not the only investiga This and He Lover of Death are two intertwined novels as can be guessed from the names While the two mysteries are separate they happen at roughly the same time When Fandorin disappears from one book for a few days he s busy on the other case while the other cast continue of their separate paths She is a bohemian slightly absurd mystery of a death cult He is a tale of low life criminals and gangs an almost rags to riches treasure hunt Both have their femme fatales as well as plot twistsWhat to ExpectEach novel is written as a different type of mystery Akunin set out to rectify the low brow reputation of the mystery genre in post USSR Russia by writing worthy literature and exploring the wide gamut of sub genres Each novel is therefore excellently written as a different type of detective case While there is continuity in the protagonist s life between the novels each is very different in themes and tonesI ve written a condensed review of the whole series on my websiteWhat I likedI like the writing style The prose is intelligent and flowing the mysteries are complex and the cast is varied though those that make repeat appearances tend to die Fandorin himself is a great character even though as a main character he still remains an enigma a tantalising mystery in itself that keeps readers engaged and clamouring to know I love the historical background Akunin has done his research into Russian culture mannerisms environment personalities etc of the late 19th century early 20th century Most of the stories take place around Moscow and Fandorin gets to meet and associate with the people of the times from the low life criminals of Khitrovka to the grand dukes of the imperial family In a few cases Akunin also has Fandorin active around notable events of the era at times filling in details where history has left us stumpedAkunin is also a Japanophile and has Fandorin spend a few years in Japan While details are sketchy and we want More it is clear that he has a great love and deep knowledge of that culture and timesWhat to be aware ofBe aware that each of the novel is told in a different style Besides the obvious something new and different in each volume one keyword is told They are almost all in 3rd person perspective and uite often not from the point of view of Erast Fandorin which is both tantalising and frustrating at times It s this distance that keeps Fandorin an enigma and keeps us coming back to learn Fandorin has a Sherlockian intellect and impressive physical prowess He is not without his faults most notably hubris but as a hero he is certainly a cut above the rest He also tends to get involved with a different femme fatale in each book This suits the detective genre perfectly regardless of modern sensibilitiesWhile the books are not really related and have few continuing characters I d still strongly recommend to read them in orderLastly and this has nothing to do with Fandorin since these are professional translations amazingly done by Andrew Bromfield via a traditional publisher the price of ebooks and hardcovers is almost the same The ebooks are also missing some of the illustrations and other typographical effects that are present in the print I d definitely recommend reading the print edition where possibleSummaryShould you read these novels Yes By all means if you love historical mysteries these novels are a must read It is an intelligent engaging and just different enough series to be in a class of its own It s not surprising that in his home country of Russia Akunin out sells JK Rowling In fact since it s been a few years since I ve read them I think I ll go back and re read my favourites Winter ueen State Counsellor and The Coronation Assaph Mehr author of Murder In Absentia A story of Togas Daggers and Magic for lovers of Ancient Rome Murder Mysteries and Urban Fantasy
