    Ebook Stone's Fall Kindle ´ stone's mobile, fall kindle, Stone's Fall PDFWell all you Iain Pears fans can relax he's written a terrific book again I say this as an Iain Pears fan who had to throw The Dream of Scipio against the wall with great forceAs in An Instance of the Fingerpost Pears uses multiple narrators to tell the story of financier John Stone's death after a fall out a window The multiple narrators in turn narrate stories taking place in different eras each illuminating the mystery at the heart of it all who killed John Stone and why The story begins in 1953 Paris; continues in 1909 London; goes back to Paris this time in 1890; continues in 1867 Venice; and finally takes us back to London 1909 Yes I know sounds like a big mess even so when you take into account that fact that one long section of the book has a a ripped from the headlines feel to it think Global Financial Crisis But Pears pulls it off beautifully with as sure a narrative hand as I've ever seen; just when

    Ebook Stone's Fall Kindle ´ stone's mobile, fall kindle, Stone's Fall PDFThis is a very long novel I'd guess nearly 300000 words and as the official blurb says it is ingenious and intricately plotted But I think it could have been just as ingenious and intricate at about half the length I was hoping it would be as good as An Instance of the Fingerpost but I was disappointed Like that one it is divided into sections each with a different narrator; but in this case the narrators all sound pretty much alike and none of them is particularly engaging In fact there are no characters with which I could either sympathize or identify Everything seems cold and calculated Central to the book is a mysterious and alluring woman but anyone who has read My Cousin Rachel will have seen mysterious and alluring done much convincingly Writing the novel backwards with each section narrating events that occurred before what we have already seen must have been excruciatingly difficult and it's amazing that Pears pulls it off so successfully At times the strain

    Ebook Stone's Fall Kindle ´ stone's mobile, fall kindle, Stone's Fall PDFSolid four star read Really and trulyI hesitate to use the word Dickensian because I was never a Dickens fan but that's the word that comes to mind for me and I do mean it in a positive way A long twisty narrative full of larger than life characters who are intertwined in all sorts of unexpected ways I can only compare it to Dickens But where Dickens wrote like he was paid by the word this book though arguably too long never felt tedious Or usually didn't anyway I wasn't always engaged by the financial and business aspects of the storyl

    Ebook Stone's Fall Kindle ´ stone's mobile, fall kindle, Stone's Fall PDFGoddammit this is twice now that Iain Pears has done this to me I get maybe a uarter to a third of the way into his book and start thinking This is ok but I'm starting to lose interest I'm not sure if I want to read much of this story But then it turns out the story isn't what you think it is

    Ebook Stone's Fall Kindle ´ stone's mobile, fall kindle, Stone's Fall PDF45 stars I really enjoyed this book my first by Iain Pears I love his humor and that he writes with depth Don't plan to fly through this one It takes patience and I found myself having to reread parts or just wanting to reread to get a better flavor for the story or to laugh again at a funny line I love the way the author decided to tell this story He starts in the present after a mysterious death has occurred and then part two goes back in time after a change in narrator Part three goes back even further after yet another change in the narration It was a little confusing at times but I trusted my pilot at that point and held on to my armrests and kept going forward It was a little odd wanting to keep the pages flying while at the same time not wanting to miss a crucial clue Sometimes a couple of words can make the difference I thoroughly enjoyed the writing and the sarcastic humor was a big plus for me Definitel
