Book Review #1

25 May

I finished The Historian. Overall, I would give it an A-. The book was extremely well written and dealt with a, for me at least, very interesting story.

There was a significant section in the middle, for about 150 pages or so, where it slowed down and was difficult to get through. However, if you can make it through that and finish all 690 pages or so, it is worth the read. Kostova writes well and with considerable research. The books ends relatively predictably, but I liked it all the same.

I would definitely reccomend it to anyone who likes historical fiction and, of course, anyone who likes to read vampire novels. This one manages to be much less campy than most, and in fact takes a rather high-brow view of the supernatural. I enjoyed it immensely.

Verdict: A-
