书评:托斯卡纳晚上#bookreview #reviews

Oh my. Talk about serendipity coming to the rescue. This book landed on my hands a couple of months after my mother was diagnosed with a brain tumor (metastatic cancer). My family life changed overnight because of the scary new symptoms involved. And then, this book came, and it spoke to my scarred psyche to provide comfort like no other book could ever have.

这是由科斯塔斯·Krommydas最新的宝石,它现在是我的最爱此作者之一。女主角,伊斯梅,发现她有她的婚礼当天脑癌。你自然会觉得这样的前提下会做出一个原始的,但郁闷的故事,但是,奇怪的是,托斯卡纳之夜是一个女人谁违抗死亡的威胁,一个令人难以置信的振奋的故事,投谨慎的风和衬托,以冒险,知道完全好,这可能是她最后一次。

Ismene makes new friends in Tuscany, samples divine food and wine in idyllic Mediterranean settings, and meets the perfect man in the face of a charming, wandering musician… Who says that someone with such a terrible disease on their hands should give up on life? So many stop living the day they hear the word ‘cancer’ from the lips of their doctors. But not Ismene; In her case, this was where the best part of her life began…

The story of this remarkably brave woman has touched me deeply, and not only because of my mother’s illness. It has reminded me that no matter the difficulty, we always have the choice of how to react, how to feel and behave. Ismene made the perfect choice, in my eyes.

Mr Krommydas has gone and done it again, offering his readers another masterfully written, heart-wrenching tale and tons of inspiration. Highly recommended.

我的评价:5 stars

Book review: Lake of Memories by Kostas Krommydas

What I love about Kostas Krommydas is that every new book of his that is released comes with a guarantee – an invisible, yet tangible seal of quality that makes me fully confident to buy, knowing I am holding in my hands my next enthralling, favourite read before I even go past the cover. This was even more so the case with Lake of Memories, seeing that it rendered me riveted from the first page.

Once again, the author has created a world of intricate human relationships, where invisible threads bind everyone together, causing them to push and pull in a soulful dance that renders the reader mesmerized. The ending is delivered masterfully, tugging at the heart with a treasure of emotions and filling the mind with deep thoughts that are bound to be revisited again and again long after finishing the book.

Highly recommended, this is now one of my favourite books by this author.

Book review: Tender Enemies by S.R. Mallery

I love books set in New York and this historical romance had an original premise that drew me from the start. I’d never read anything about Nazis in America before so I was intrigued before I even started to read. S.R. Mallery set her world vividly from the first pages, reeling me in effortlessly. I have read all her other books and, once again the dialogue was spot on for the era. This author writes vivid dialogue and characters in all her books, and she does it in an almost cinematographical way, in the sense that as I read I can see it all in my mind’s eye. What a wonderful talent for a writer to have!

女主角莉莉,从童年创伤,担心她的母亲的健康了。她就是这样一个充满爱心的灵魂,一个好女孩,这是满是担忧和惶恐的。这一切都让我向往她找到幸福。她爱的人被别人她被分配到侦察,造成她与疼痛对他的爱,而在同一时间怀疑他的诚信和真实的动机。

纳粹支持者的主机,在放样一些操作工和联邦调查局特工已列入故事,编织谎言的和不信任,在中央被困两个主角。我不能推荐这本书足以让历史小说和温馨浪漫与悬念的球迷。这个故事证明了完全娱乐到最后一页。接近年底,一系列的曲折和启示引起了我阅读的乐趣扶摇直上。

But, above all, what I enjoyed the most was feeling fully immersed in the 1940s as I read. It was an unforgettable mind trip and I urge you to take it as well.

我的评价:5 stars

耐人寻味的历史演义。这样的翻页式!

Oh my. After finishing this book I feel like I’ve gone around the world. In a time capsule. Once again, Mallery unfolds her talent with masterful storytelling that makes history come alive. Soldiers fighting the Vietnam War, hippies in Woodstock, suffragettes, emigrants arriving on Ellis island and so much more come to life in this compelling family saga, making it a spell-binding treat you will never forget.

我现在读的是马勒的书,我被她的独特的礼物惊讶地创造历史觉得这是今天发生的事情。她把从淡出的,飘渺的过去的历史事件和人物,并把它们转化成活生生的东西,她的话,不知何故,在醒目的颜色投射到她的读者的心灵。这是一个真正的魔法天赋有,我劝你品尝它。

Betway Sports

这本书是一个美妙的惊喜。捡起来之前,我已经读过科斯塔斯·Krommydas另外两本书。我爱他们两个,寻找爱情悲剧的共同点和曲折的命运完全令人信服。Athora的故事情节同样是铆接和痛心,但以不同的方式和作者的其他小说中真正脱颖而出。

从Athora的前几页,我被吸引了and couldn’t put it down. This is a full-blown murder mystery and one of the best I’ve ever read. Being highly reminiscent of Dan Brown’s world-famous bestsellers, truly, the only difference was the setting – a tiny Greek island in this case. Non-stop action and intrigue kept me turning the pages insatiably, down to the reveal of the killer at the very end. The brutal murder scenes are chilling and quite masterful. But even more so than the murders, it was the unprecedented storm that plagued the tiny island of Athora that set the mood for me and swept me away as I read.

Highly descriptive writing from an author who seems to own a magic magnifying glass that allows him to look deep into the psyche of his characters. Being lifelike beyond measure, I had trouble keeping them away from my thoughts for a few days after finishing the book. Whether you like murder mysteries or Greek island reads, this is a must and, most likely, your next favorite read!

Book review: Little Thumb by Marina Gioti (Fairytales Retold series)

这是笔者的第二本书,我现在已经读第一个是心脏,撕心裂肺的图画书“一Heart'和我喜欢的是这个系列的质疑童话故事的概念。这是一个奇妙的想法,火花好奇心在孩子们的心目中,鼓励他们为自己着想。

Filbert Numbscull is the main character throughout the series. Unlike the delightful surname that suggests otherwise when pronounced, this is actually a clever little owl that even plays detective! In the specific book, Filbert investigates the whats, hows and whys behind the story of Little Thumb. A host of pressing questions are addressed for the first time and the findings surprisingly point us to the issue of fear – what it can do to us and how liberating it can be once we find the courage to overcome it.

Gioti太太都写散文巧妙,设计了漂亮的图形创建一个绑定招待年幼的孩子,教他们一两件事一个顶尖的儿童读物。如果你的孩子往往会质疑一切,我相信他们会喜欢“会议”先生榛子Numbscull!一个愉快的和聪明的图画书,我强烈建议。

按作者希拉里·惠顿Paipeti孚的乌鸦女巫的精彩评论betway必威官网登陆官方网

(Review by author Hilary Whitton Paipeti)

Just south of Messonghi, and standing slightly separate from the aerial-capped hill of Hlomos, is the ‘pyramid-shaped’ mountain of Martaouna, one of the main settings for Effrosyni Moschoudi’s new novel, ‘The Raven Witch of Corfu’. Dubbed a ‘fantasy holiday romance’,它是从米尔斯和皇家的一个步骤 - 比芭芭拉更玛丽·斯图尔特,带着几分哥特式恐怖和哈利·波特式的神奇的搭配。它肯定是一个翻页式 - 非常适合在海滩Messonghi的慵懒的下午(其中大部分是套),或者实际上在任何地点或时间。

The plot gets going so quickly that it is almost impossible to précis it without giving the game away.Suffice to say that the heroine has returned to Corfu after twenty years, with a task to undertake – namely to claim back her twin brother, who was kidnapped, aged 12, on her previous visit. In a cave. By a wicked witch.

Sounds unlikely? So was Harry Potter, but that turned out OK, didn’t it?Continuous action through nearly 400 pages (how DID she keep it up?) and a number of sub-plots draw you in fast.Reading a pre-publication edition, I was supposed to be proof-reading, but I was so keen to know at every stage what happened next that I forgot!

Approaching the denouement, I really puzzled over how it would work out;I’m usually good at guessing endings, but this one floored me.Would it finish with a cop-out? No, Effrosyni came up with the goods, with a brilliant ‘twist’ that pulled the plot back from the brink.

什么锚Effrosyni的书在现实中是她的存在感。她孚书籍betway必威官网登陆官方网和周围莫拉伊蒂卡,祖籍她的祖父,并在那里她每年从小在度假,设置到位。虽然图可以拥有超自然(触及如图所示在我们Effrosyni的短篇小说“A系列化结束假期老太”),他们是在真实和熟悉的世界,这使得难以置信莫名其妙合理的设置。You can walk with the heroine to the secret olive groves on the mountain of Martaouna, and accompany her around Messonghi and to a ‘Varkarola’ festival at Petriti, where you’ll experience a long evening in high summer. These具体场景帮助我们接受t的超现实he storyline, just as hobbits, orcs, elves and wizards could justifiably inhabit a world fully recognisable as England.

But the supernatural is not contained only in the book itself. As Effrosyni tells us, ‘something spooky happened when [the artist] got to work on the cover! I only told him my book was set on a beach in Corfu and, of all places, he showed me this image that actually depicts the bay in Messonghi.’ So, if you think you’re going to have to suspend belief when reading ‘Raven Witch’, just consider: There are more things in Heaven and Earth… Who knows what’s really hiding on Martaouna?

The review was published in the October issue of the Corfu e-newspaper,The Agiot

Author Hilary Whitton Paipeti contributes with articles inThe Agiot,mainly about hikes around Corfu, its flora and fauna. Her upcoming book, ‘In the Footsteps of Lawrence Durrell and Gerald Durrell in Corfu’, is a republication of the popular 1990s edition, with new content.

书评:故事由S.R.指望马勒

Trust S.R. Mallery to never disappoint. And this rings true, once again, with this collection of delightfully diverse short stories. The order they’ve been put in the book (from shorter to longer in terms of word count) also serves as a vehicle that drives the reader deeper and deeper into the author’s mastery of prose. I am not a fan of flash fiction, so I can’t say I particularly enjoyed the first stories that were really short. But, boy, did the reading begin to pay off gradually as I kept turning the pages! For me, short stories of a greater length are those that allow an author to unfold their talent to the max. Mallery’s came shining through the pages like a floodlight. I loved how some of the stories took me to different places or times – reminding me of the equally thrilling experience I had when I read ‘Sewing Can Be Dangerous’ by the same author. Jumping from one place and era to another, on and on, had me starting each story with an element of surprise, which enhanced my reading experience further. In Tales to Count On, Mallery reminds us that nothing is what it seems. I urge you to read this book and explore this notion with these wonderful tales.
