Summary Ú eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF ↠ Daphne Kalotay

O uesto che sta pensando Nina ormai anziana mentre Drew Brooks la funzionaria della casa d'aste la incalza con domande su uella parure cui sembra mancare il pezzo più importante la collana uando tuttavia Grigorij Solodin un professore di russo che da tempo cerca di mettersi in contatto con Nina consegna a Drew proprio la collana d'ambra che completa la parure niente può più arginare la serie di sconcertanti rivelazioni che svelano a Nina la verità sul suo tormentato passato. I was hooked on this book by page 80 If you like the arts ballet Russian history or all three you will love this book The book takes place in post war Russia but the narration switches between history and modern day as the author weaves three main characters lives together I found this book to be profound and while a work of fiction is probably very close to lives other post war Soviets lived I loved the little nuggets of ballet terminology and I thought the lot descriptions in between chapters made this book near perfect Highly recommended

To e poeta e lui la chiede in moglie le sembra di toccare il cielo con un dito Ma la vita è dura a Mosca il regime staliniano è una cappa opprimente la polizia segreta è ovunue la paura e la diffidenza gravano su tutto e tutti Si insinuano lentamente anche in Nina finché un odioso sospetto la spinge a una precipitosa e rocambolesca fuga in Occidente interrompendo così una fulgida carriera e sbarrando le porte del suo cuore all'unico uomo che abbia mai amato Boston E a tutt. Well it seems I may be in the minority here but I did not love this book It had so much potential I appreciate that the author tried to tie the 2 stories together but the Boston bits ruined the rest of itIn fairness much of what I didn t like is personal preference I hate the formula used here Tell a little bit just when it gets interesting switch to something else To me it feels like someone taunting I know something you don t know and all I can think is fine if you don t want to tell me don t The Nina Viktor Vera Gersh storyline was strong enough on its own it did not need the teasing and heavy foreshadowing to make me want to keep reading I found the constant interruption of the current day storyline to be very frustrating Maybe if the Drew Cynthia and even modern day Nina characters been developed it would have added to the overall book for me instead it just detracted from itAlso had the whole book focused on the historical storyline it could have been much developed I would love to read about Russia during Stalin s reign as this one seemed to barely skim the surface It is her first book though I would still read another as she will likely only get better
