    PDF/EPUB aqqa.pro ↠ Ghostwalk eBook è ghostwalk book, Ghostwalk PDFWell that was different In theory this book should have been my jam The story opens with Elizabeth Vogelsang being found dead in a river near her Cambridge home clutching a glass prism in her hand Elizabeth is a 17th century scholar who specializes in Isaac Newton and her death interrupts her work on a book exploring Newton's interest in alchemy Elizabeth's son Cameron recruits Lydia Brooke a writer friend of Elizabeth and Cameron's former lover to ghost write the rest of Elizabeth's book Along the way Lydia tries to unravel the secrets in Elizabeth's research secrets that might have led to her death I'm going to go ahead and get the most absurd th

    PDF/EPUB aqqa.pro ↠ Ghostwalk eBook è ghostwalk book, Ghostwalk PDFI've seen some reviews of Rebecca Stott's Ghostwalk compare it to The DaVinci Code but it's an extremely superficial comparison Books about modern day people who investigate mysteries from the past existed long before Dan Brown hammered out his infamous novel; he did not create a new genreIn Ghostwalk Lydia Brooke is asked by her ex lover to ghostwrite the final chapters of an Isaac Newton biography that his late mother was writing As she completes the work Lydia finds the seventeenth century creeping into the present as mysterious deaths mirror the deaths of Newton's contemporariesIt's not exactly a murder mystery; Ghostwalk focuses on Lydia's own entanglements with her ex lover and his dead mother than it does on the victims The narration is ly

    PDF/EPUB aqqa.pro ↠ Ghostwalk eBook è ghostwalk book, Ghostwalk PDFAfter reading this book I am sorry to say that I was severely disappointed The synopsis for it sounded great and I normally love books that involve a historical mystery to solve but there really wasn't much about this book that I liked A historian and writer of screenplays Lydia Brooke is hired by her former married lover Cameron Brown to ghostwrite a book after the author his mother Elizabeth Volgelsang is murdered The unfinished manuscript involves Isaac Newton and a group of seventeenth century alchemists and Elizabeth's notes and manuscript show that she believes that a series of seventeenth century deaths are entangled with current happenings While working on his mother's book Lydia becomes involved with Cameron Brown again and she uick

    PDF/EPUB aqqa.pro ↠ Ghostwalk eBook è ghostwalk book, Ghostwalk PDFOne of my ghostly reads for October Ghostwalk by Rebecca Stott was enjoyable It is uniuely written a story within a story; unfortunately the inside story involves Sir Isaac Newton the great scientific discoverer I do not have a scientific heart SorryThere is a love story an affair with a married man if that is a love story suspicious deaths scientific use of animals a mysticseer and many references to physics which I didn't understand The basic plot was good with surprises twists and much much much historical atmosphere I can understand why it disappointed many readers but I stayed drawn in and focused throughout I've certainly read worse

    PDF/EPUB aqqa.pro ↠ Ghostwalk eBook è ghostwalk book, Ghostwalk PDFI expected a fascinating ghost story literary with mysterious murders and the past coming back to haunt Intelligent and historical yes And it’s full of atmospheric descriptions that I liked However the main character Lydia Brooke speaking in the first person point of view “I’ve been back four times” I said but then “telling” the other main character Cameron her ex lover what he said presenting his dialogue by using the pronoun ‘you’ to name the speaker So instead of ‘he said’ or ‘Cameron said’ the author writes “you said” meaning you Cameron said it This device was not only distracting but a really screwy way to write I got so annoyed after a while with Lydia telling Cameron and the reader what he said And then somewhere around page 230 we have Lydia in third person point of view “Lydia Brooke walked into the dark her head ached that’s when she first heard the footsteps” The story became muddy and unclear too m

    PDF/EPUB aqqa.pro ↠ Ghostwalk eBook è ghostwalk book, Ghostwalk PDFTHis is the best book that I have ever read that I could only rate two stars I loved Neal Stephenson's Baroue Cycle and I couldn't wait to pick up another book that might take a deeper look into Isaac Newton's alchemical experiments The research that was done before this book was written is incredible and the passages in which Elizabeth Vogelsang's The Alchemist the fictitious biography of Newton at the center of Ghostwalk is excerpted are very good We learn about glass making in seventeenth century Europe the plague in England the vast networks of alchemists operating in Europe at the time One of the major themes of the novel is that the past 'bleeds' into the present but the author can't seem to get her many plot devices set in the present to 'bleed

    PDF/EPUB aqqa.pro ↠ Ghostwalk eBook è ghostwalk book, Ghostwalk PDFThe research in this book is great as well as the writing in the book about Isaac Newton within this story In fact the Newton book should have been this story That would have made a great book with all these elements alchemists secret formulas brilliant young Newton beginning to figure out among other things calculus and differential euations lovely stuff patronage factions nepotism a series of uestionable deaths Why did the author waste her time writing a pointless story with annoying characters in the present when she could have speculated away in all sorts of fantastic and fantastical ways about the goings in in Cambridge amongst alchemists in the 1660s?

    PDF/EPUB aqqa.pro ↠ Ghostwalk eBook è ghostwalk book, Ghostwalk PDFI enjoyed the start of this book and was intrigued by the idea of a mix between a ghost story and detective story with 17th century events woven in with present day ones I was also attracted by the fact that it's set in Cambridge a city I knowHowever I soon got fed up and gave up after about 80 pages I didn't believe in any of the characters and found the plot too convoluted so decided not to waste my time
