This is my first James Patterson, and I discovered that I do not like his writing style.
I could not stay attached to the story. Also, the narrator's voice seemed a little too mature for the main character; as well as being a little harsh in tone. I did not finish it.
I am a fan of most biographies of British royalty, and this was a superb treat. An amazing chronicle of the children of a very controversial king. And, the apples certainly did not fall far from the tree! I can't wait to read more of her work.
I am a fan of Brad Meltzer's "Decoded", but have never read any of his books. This one just did not hold my interest, And, what a disappointment, since I am a huge fan of conspiracy theories and mysteries.
I am a fan of British history going back centuries, and was not sure if I would enjoy this more contemporary biography. But, it did not disappoint. It was well written; seemed to follow history accurately, and the author did not take sides on the issues, just recorded them.
I found the story a little depressing even though that was the author's intent. Some uplifting character's would have been welcome. But, overall, a good depiction of that era in NYC.
I am a big fan of vampire stories, and was hoping that this series would not disappoint......and, it hasn't. The mythology was complicated enough to hold my interest, and the angel component was a sweet surprise.
I am a lover of the Victorian period. And, this gave story me quite a laugh thinking about how the sisters would fit into this stoic period of repressed feminism!
Taking the story back in time makes this an amazing saga.
Can't wait for #3!!!
Witches and vampires: a new combo and done so very well by Deborah Harkness.I am a huge fan of vampire stories, and this was a lovely surprise!
The story and the characters were fascinating. Following these women through the years, and discovering how their lives unfolded and intertwined was a real treat!
