    Read ´ E-book, or Kindle E-pub Ë Victoria Hislop [Pdf Read] (The Thread) This book has expectations to be epic but the sad reality is that it looks like a book written by a tourist who wanted to stage some kind of story in a place she fancied The result is a story that has little or no real connection with the place and the time; it could have been staged in Paris during the French revolution or in Moscow during the Bolshevik period It would have made no difference to the development of the

I read Hislop s latest around X mas in the uiet of the night Very promising at first but the novel is so plot driven it is infuriating No character development many inconsistencies in the plot some bad Greek she should have asked her Greek friends to proofread I kept reading because the main part of the plot happens during World War II in Thessaloniki my home town and that was such a dramatic time for the city To be fair her descriptions are good and memorable But the book could have been so much better

Read ´ E-book, or Kindle E-pub Ë Victoria Hislop Victoria Hislop Ë 9 Read & download Review The Thread Tessalonica 1917 No dia em ue Dimitri Komninos nasce um incêndio devastador varre a próspera cidade grega onde cristãos judeus e muçulmanos vivem lado a lado Cinco anos mais tarde a casa de Katerina Sarafoglou na Ásia Menor é destruída pelo exército turco No meio do caos Katerina perde. I really enjoyed The Island despite its flaws and I was hoping for a similarly good plot with The Thread but I was pretty disappointedThe history of the novel was interesting but it really dragged on and on in the last uarter of the book as there was no climactic scene like in The Island On the face of it the novel was fine but there were just too many problems with it for me to give it than two stars For a start all the characters were either good or bad selfish or selfless The poor were wonderful people with tonnes of friends and the rich only cared about money and were ultimately miserable and alone I realise the Moreno family was an exception to this but they still chose to live in the poorest part of the city and were therefore wonderfulI also had issues with inconsistencies in characters like the fact that Hislop makes a point of saying the twins have little in common besides their looks before going on to say they both want to be tobacco graders they both dislike school and have no interest in their mother s weaving and later on they are practically finishing each other s sentencesIt bugged me that there was very little reason given for why Eugenia takes in the five year old Katerina and raises her and no real gratitude or reflection on this from Katerina s point of view Later on Katerina says the fact that a soldier picked her up and threw her on a boat out of dangerous Smyrna as the greatest kindness that s ever been shown to me Err what about a woman taking you in feeding you clothing you and making you part of her family without anyone even asking her to There were moments and inconsistencies like that throughout the novel which just wound me up There was simply too much stuff happening and too many characters to make anything in particularly meaningful in my view I wanted Hislop to stop take a breath and really explore what was going on in a scene or era it seemed rushed and not nearly enough attention was given to the narrative which seemed confused in placesI enjoyed learning about the history of the city which I wouldn t have discovered otherwise but the actual story and how it was told left a lot to be desired

Review The Thread

Read ´ E-book, or Kindle E-pub Ë Victoria Hislop Victoria Hislop Ë 9 Read & download Review The Thread A mãe e embarca para um destino desconhecido na Grécia Não tarda muito para ue a sua vida se entrelace com a de Dimitri e com a história da própria cidade enuanto guerras medos e perseguições começam a dividir o seu povo Tessalonica 2007 Um jovem anglo grego ouve a história de vida dos. I was reluctant to ready this book Why Well I have read a lot of books about this era of Greek history but other than Louis de Bernieres never one written by a British authorMy wife had bought me a copy for Christmas and I had put it under the bed dismissing it as a middle class British woman s attempt to imagine a subject she can t possibly know that well But I picked it up again when people started talking to me about it I was wrong and I am glad I persevered Hislop knows Greece well This is a very moving story of a Greek family being thrown out of Asia Minor and arriving in Salonica to live alongside Muslim and Jewish neighbours set against the backdrop of the torrid and very tragic history of Greece and particularly Salonica through the 20th century It s the first time as far as I know that this subject matter has been written about by a popular British author The story itself is tragic and simultaneously beautiful My only criticism is that in her rush to go through all the eras of 20th century Greek history a subject she understands very well Hislop at times fails to develop the characters sufficiently and some of the plot lines blend into an easy outcome at times And there are a few mistakes in the book like using the male ending for one of the female characters names throughout the book But otherwise this is a very good piece of writing one which will move you teach you about an era of Greek history which is not widely known or understood and give you some insights as to why Greece is going through the problems it is going through today I like it when someone proves me wrong A surprisingly good read and highly recommended
