İran'da İslam tarihi, ailesi bir zamanlar tercih edilen elitin bir parçası olan ancak yoksulluğa indirgenen yazarın deneyimleriyle görüldü. Sonunda ölüm tehditleri yüzünden İran'dan kaçtı.
Arsaya çekildim, ancak ana kahraman Robert Dudley tarafından reddedildim. İhanetinin başlamasının biraz aptallaşmaya başladığını hissettim. Yazar bunu çok iyi tasvir etti ve ona kredi veriyorum ama hiç hoşuma gitmedi.
If you liked the film 'Kingdom of Heaven' and you want to find out the history that the story was (loosely) derived from then this is the perfect book.
I'm a sucker for Nazi what-ifs. A few of Harris's characters are more wish-fulfillment than well-conceived, but the plot is a doozy, and Xavier March is the most sympathetic SS officer I've ever wanted to mother hen.
Story of a sensitive, classical music loving, Proust reading vampire just trying to find love. Another reviewer called it weird..but in a good way. I'd agree.
The story surrounding this graphic novel is that it was found on earth and appears to be a comic book left behind by extra terrestrials. The only words in it are in an alien language so everything must be inferred from the pictures.
I think I need to read this in one go as it just doesn't capture my imagination. It needs too much concentration and too be honest can't be bothered with the main character. Quite like the magical realism elements of the story, but just doesn't hang well enough together for me to be able to continue.
