I am going to place this one in my DNF file It was just too overly done for my tastes If one loves poets Dante and the fact that they may have come together to solve a mystery than this book would surely be for you I did get up to the 20% mark but just found that I eceived no pleasure from the story 45 stars To say that Matthew Pearl likes literature is an understatement Many of his books are literary Don't Wake Up related in some way or another making themeally intriguing to meMy first experience with Pearl was with the Book THE LAST BOOKANEER THE LAST BOOKANEER was a wonderful Reduced read but importantly it was different I have also had THE DANTE CLUB on myadar for the better part of six years so when "This One Came Up For Review I "one came up for Double Betrayal review I stoked So why haven t Iead THE DANTE CLUB you askI have no ideaMaybe it s because it s been on my TBR list for so long that I ve forgotten about it as I keep adding new books or maybe it s because I don t own a copy of the first book Whatever it is when this book came up for eview I gave it a solid hell ya to eviewSo let s get the obvious uestion out of the way firstthis is the second in a series having not The Magistrates' Court: An Introduction (Fifth Edition) read the first book did I feel lost No I did not I see that a number ofeaders also commented that this book was a true standalone book and I would agree Pearl did a great job at helping new eaders navigate this new novel and filled in any of the gaps and uestions from the first book in the series but again if you haven t ead the first book do not feel like you need to go back and Nomadische Lebenswelten Und Zarische Politik: Der Aufstand In Zentralasien 1916 read it to enjoy this oneFor me this book was of a thinker bookather than a casual novel where you just The Crimson Thread: A Retelling of Rumpelstiltskin read lightly and enjoy the story as it happens This book makes you engage actively in the story and makes you think The plot is basic yet the characters and narrative style are tedious and it does take some time to process and get used to so be prepared to focus and pay attention throughout this bookThis kind of meandering style seems to be a signature of Pearl s as Iemember his style being similar in THE LAST BOOKANEER He takes a lot of time to set eaders up for the story and "The Characters This Approach Might Bore Some "characters This approach might bore some but I encourage you to stay the course because this is a very interesting and well written book with a thrilling historical mysteryThis book is obviously heavy on the literary eferences as well while you certainly don t need to be an English Lit scholar to No Beast So Fierce: The Terrifying True Story of the Champawat Tiger, the Deadliest Animal in History read this book you will find lots of littleeferences to love and endear this novel to you if you have a basic understanding of English Lit I myself have a degree in English Lit so I loved all the little nuances of this novel because of thatI think this book is the sort of book that appeals to a certain type of Close to the Land: The Way We Lived in North Carolina, 1820-1870 reader While I think most audiences will find this book great I think a specific audience will find it outstanding If you like sophisticated mysteries with a smart narration style then you will likelyate this book as outstanding I would say it came in at a 45 for me While I loved the mystery itself and the thinking piece I found the first half of the book a little tediousnot enough to make me Berlayar di Pamor Badik rate it lower than a 4 though What bumped it to the 45ating though was all the fun literary L. Munatius Plancus references in the bookthat s Pearl s bread and butteright thereOn a final notethe cover OMG the cover I am swooning at how perfect it is I absolutely love it much than the cover of any of his other novels Who ever designed this cover art had. From Mathew Pearl the bestselling author of The Dante Club a masterful tale of literature obsession and murderThe year is 1870 Five years after a series of Dante inspired killings disrupted Boston a man is found murdered in the public gardens of London with an enormous stone around his neck etched with a verse from the Divine Comedy When mysterious murders erupt across the city all in the style of the punishments Dante memorialized in Purgatory poet Christina Rossetti fears her brother the Dante A wonderful vision and it captured my eye and made the book "Stand Out Even See "out even See full eview here Delicious dark and dreamy historical thrillers are Matthew Pearl s specialty and he again delivers with THE DANTE CHAMBER Though it is preceded by THE DANTE CLUB the book stands alone as a world containedThe fascinating London literati of the mid nineteenth century populate the pages and are an utter delight because of their absurdity their egos and their uniue views of the world Christina Rossetti is the heart "of the book at once intimidating otherworldly and sympathetic Tennyson Browning and "the book at once intimidating otherworldly and sympathetic Tennyson Browning and come alive each emarkable and strange certain to inspire eaders to evisit their works or learn about themThe mystery is uniue and captivating Readers will gain new insights into Dante s DIVINE COMEDY and the implications for how criminal or obsessive minds could corrupt its message THE DANTE CHAMBER is not a simple The Pink Pearl read it is layered complex and dense Iecommend it to Migrant Resistance in Contemporary Europe readers who enjoy deep character development andich explorations of time and art Oh Matthew Pearl Dante Alighieri Oliver Wendell Holmes et all how I love theeAllow me to count the LevelsOne Ante Purgatory or Stubbornness where you wash me upon the shore in uncertain anticipation as to what journey you will enforce upon me and if I will be able to get anything done until I finish each and every page I feel no guilt for those the people and tasks that I will ignore as I devour your words and characters In short I feel no need for The Violinist and The Son of Redhead: Two Plays by Leonard Melfi repentance just leave me and my book be It is where the invisible P for Pearl is written on my forehead much like the P for Purgatory on Dante during his journey I uickly become entranced by your characters that will not back down from the good fight no matter the cost So entranced that I forget to warn everyone that I ve gotten my hands on a new Matthew Pearl book and totally fall into the idea of tuning everyone out now and asking for forgiveness now I forget toepent before diving inTwo Pride is the point that I sueal with glee and Fairy Tales are True: Silent Reach from the Dunes to the Khumba Mela rub it into everyone s faces that I have the book already and they don t Social Media face to face total strangers are all made aware of my accomplishment that they didn t manage While continuing to do this I slowly fall into the framework of his book get to know theelated characters download their Galaxies in the Universe: An Introduction relevant works if they are based oneal life people which they usually are and oh the googling that happens at those moments that I am able to Dying to Be Ill: True Stories of Medical Deception rip my attention away for a momentThree Envy is where I mutter a curse that Pearl has much better grasp of his characterseal life characters Robert Browning Christina Rossetti Gabriel Dante Rossetti Dante Alighieri Oliver
