Daphne Kalotay Å Russian Winter EPUB

Russian WinterPoeta Viktor Elsin ue ela e os seus amigos mais ueridos Gersh um compositor brilhante e a bela Vera a sua melhor amiga se tornaram vítimas da agressão estalinista E foi na Rússia ue uma terrível descoberta conduziu a um acto fatal de traição e a uma fuga engenhosa ue conduziu Nina para o Ocidente e por fim até Boston Nina guardou os seus segredos durante metade da sua vida Mas duas pessoas não irão deixar o passado repousar D 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
