    The Luminaries PDF ´ Hardcover luminaries download, The Luminaries ePUBI'm a New Zealander like the author Everyone here is raving about this book including people who write great novels themselves I'm feeling pretty miserable about the fact that I couldn't get into it forced myself to read halfway started again and then gave up in despair I liked the beginning started to identify with the first character Moody then lost the plot when the other 14 or so main characters took over the story The faux 19th century style felt slightly forced and the sentences were for me indigestible After reading the first uarter of the book I have a vivid picture in my mind of Hokitika in the 1860s I like that about it At the same time it doesn't ring true that the leading lights in a pioneer community would care so deeply about the death of a hermit and apparent attempted suicide of a prostitute There was a sameness to the dialogue that didn't ring true to me either Sure I haven't read any 19th century novels for a long time and have forgotten the style Wh
