Recent Comments "The Thirteenth Tale"

Sigh I really, really wanted to like this book I heard good things about it, and it has many elements I usually love in a novel a Victorian sensibility, questions of identity and sisterhood as well as siblinghood generally , meta commentary on writing, and a plain, quiet, somewhat chilly protagonist who prefers books to people The protagonist, Margaret, grew up in a bookstore and learned to read using 19th century novels, and there are clear parallels in the story to Jane Eyre, Wuthering Heights [...]

There is something about words In expert hands, manipulated deftly, they take you prisoner Wind themselves around your limbs like spider silk, and when you are so enthralled you cannot move, they pierce your skin, enter your blood, numb your thoughts Inside you they work their magic I don t know if I ve ever loved words so much.Lots of people told me that this was a book I needed to read, but many of those people also warned me that I might find it slow So I went into The Thirteenth Tale prepare [...]

Do you know the feeling when you start reading a new book before the membrane of the last one has had time to close behind you You leave the previous book with ideas and themes characters even caught in the fibers of your clothes, and when you open the new book, they are still with you This quote from The Thirteenth Tale by Diane Setterfield sums up my experience with the book It s been a while since I ve felt truly drawn in to a novel Likely this is the result of my recent tendency toward selec [...]

Tell me the truth These are the words that a young journalist speaks to Vida Winter in the beginning of this book Vida is an author famous for spinning magical tales In books, and about her life Each time she releases a new story, she grants multiple interviews, in which every journalist asks her the story of her life, and leaves thinking that they, finally, after decades of deceptions, are the one she s told the truth to But she never does Until now Out of the blue, she writes to an amateur bio [...]

Reviewed by Rabid ReadsSo here s my problem with gothic literature it s so habitually grotesque that it s predictable.If there s not incest, there s a crazy wife in the attic If there s not a crazy wife in the attic, there s a murderous illegitimate son who s not right in the head Or conjoined twins Or a dying gypsy s curse Or something equally unsettling.So even if you guess the HEP Big Secret wrong, whatever it actually is isn t going to make a dent B c you ve already imagined the worst B c go [...]

I know that most people like to work out to Gnarls Barkley or Metallica or what have you, but I find gym based exercise so exceedingly boring that I require narrative to keep me going Since my motor coordination isn t sufficient enough to allow me to turn the pages of a magazine book AND pump the pedals on an elliptical trainer, sometime last summer I turned to Audible to solve my problems Now, what one requires from printed matter may not at all do for the recorded book, and in my case, it turn [...]

This has finally come out in paperback This is that one that got an 800,000 advance and is meant to be the best book since sliced bread To be honest I don t hold out a lot of hope.On P 138I take it back I have been sucked in straight away Can barely put it down Whiich is apt seeing as amonst other things it is the tale of books and their words sucking you in It is also the tale of a dying writer and her reluctant biography, lost twins and the ghosts of the past Like The House at Riverton it has [...]

We live like latecomers at the theatre we must catch up as best we can, dividing the beginning from the shape of later events The Thirteenth Tale had been waiting in my TBR list for almost two years, before I finally decided to start reading it It proved to be a rare bibliophile s experience.In the Gothic Literature group October Reading and in a recent discussion with a friend in , I described Diane Setterfield s novel as foreboding Each scene, each sentence is a creation of art, each detail so [...]

The Thirteenth Taleis a gothic suspense novel from 2006 with echoes from several Victorian novels The familiar device of a story within a story is employed, and sometimes it even contains another story This story telling tradition strongly reminds the reader of earlier classic tales In fact the rule of threes goes throughout this book echoing its fairytale feel There is the structure of the book itself, Beginnings, Middles and Endings There are three generations in the earlier saga There were th [...]

Amazing for a debut While a homage to classic gothic novels no need to be a fan pick it up if you re into mysteries with plenty of psychological twists, ambiance and above all suspense Setterfield excels in the slow build, at stringing you along, feeding you morsels bit by tantalizing bit almost toys with you until you grow impatient, at least I did About 1 3 of the way in I reconciled myself to the fact that she insisted on setting her own pace and simply would not be rushed That s when I relax [...]

This one of my favorite books I don t re read books very often This is one of the few that would make the list This book has been reviewed about 3000 times, so I m not going to add to the pile I will just stay I recommend this book to all book lovers no matter what genre you prefer A


2 stars I really, really wanted to like this book than I did Unfortunately, I finished it with a sense of disappointment.My interest wavered throughout the novel, going on a roller coaster ride of ups and downs Unfortunately, there were downs than ups.The book started off with a bang I was thrilled to have the feeling of settling into a well written historical fiction family drama mystery, my absolute favourite genre combination Sadly, this feeling was short lived After the first quarter of th [...]

Here I am, looking at other reviews to figure out what genre this is So, this is Gothic suspense WOW I was guessing mystery, but with so much atmosphere, it seeped into my bones What an incredible book This was a 15 hour audio book, and due to life circumstances, I was not able to listen continuously What I can say is that every time I listened, I was completely drawn into another world It is the story of a famous recluse writer, Vida Winters She is an invalid now, but has one final tale to tell [...]

I can t remember why I bought this and it s probably not fair that I rate it because at times I felt like I was reading a novel in a language I don t understand The best way I can think of describing it is Bronte fan fiction At times it felt like a product than a labour of love The biggest problem for me was the question of how seriously I was supposed to take this novel Just a bit of light hearted fun with its constant smoking mirrors and playfully preposterous premises But maybe there s an ar [...]

Danas nisam ivela svoj ivot, danas sam ivela ivot Margaret Li Odavno me knjiga nije epala kao ova Na po etku je bila samo lepa, topla, pitka uljuljkavala me je ne no poput deteta u ivala sam A onda je klupko po elo da se odmotava, pri a me je razbudila i povukla sa sobom, elela sam jo i jo i jo Pohlepno sam tra ila to jo kroz re enice i stranice, nisam mogla da se oduprem elji da to pre saznam svaku pojedinost, detalj, pogledam u svaku ispisanu sliku, da saznam istinu i kona no otkrijem trinaest [...]

DISCLAIMER This is not a review These are just some random thoughts that were skittering through my mind while I was reading this book.WARNING The following is filled with passages picked up from the book, which may not be of any interest to anyone but me Yes I might have ended up highlighting than half of the book So read at your own peril According to me, there are two kind of listeners of music One who prefers lyrics of a song over its melody and rhythm the second kind are the ones who are a [...]

I hate not to finish reading a book I ve started, so I went on and finished it fast Sigh I really wanted to like The Thirteenth Tale, for one I was reading with my friend Vessey Besides that, there was a lot in the story for me to enjoy an antiquarian bookstore a lonely protagonist whose best friends are books, plus a secondary character who is a mysterious, isolated writer And some nice passages, like There is something about words In expert hands, manipulated deftly, they take you prisoner Win [...]

Oh to be lost in a book That s really the reason I read, the reason I read often than I write and so on I have a favorite memory it is me, at thirteen or fourteen, lying on a bedsheet I carried from the laundry room and spread out in the field across the street from my childhood home It was spring, nearly too cool to be comfortable, but the grass was dry and very green and filled with tiny little pastel flowers, which are decidedly not real snow drops, but that s what I d called them since I wa [...]

Dear god I listened to this abortion of a story in the car last weekend It was so awful that words cannot describe how idiotic it was Contrived doesn t begin to describe it Melodrama on top of melodrama Secret family members Ghosts The main character fainting at the drop of a hat Ugh, I wanted every last character to die screaming If this is what women read and apparently there are people who actually enjoyed this catastrophe, in fact it has a higher rating than some Cormac McCarthy novels on he [...]

Margaret Lea never imagined the outcome when she, as a devoted modern, bibiophile, living with her parents on top of their book store, wrote a biographical essay,The Fraternal Muse on the Landier brothers, for a hardback collection of essays on writing and the family in the nineteenth century She was a diletante, talented amateur in the company of professional and academic writers.A is for Austen, B is for Bront , C is for Charles and D is for Dickens That is how she learned to read and write Th [...]

I got a lot of satisfaction from the dark mysteries in this old fashioned tale, which makes homage to Jane Eyre and The Woman in White It hooked me right from the beginning, where Margaret Lea is working in her father s antiquarian bookstore in London and gets a letter from a famous reclusive writer, Vida Winter, inviting her to consider writing her biography She balks because she has only written obscure biographies of obscure dead literary figures, but the letter intrigues her with its praise [...]

Wow I was really surprised how much I loved this book There are a lot of mixed reviews and it seems to me that people either Hated it or loved it and I was afraid that I was going to be one of those that hated it I love the Gothic Suspense genre and this book definitely is a classic so this was not the case I loved it than I ever thought I would I feel that those that hated it just do not like the gothic suspense genre The Best adjective to describe this book would be mysterious Vida Winters an [...]

I have always been a reader I have read at every stage of my life and there has never been a time when reading was not my greatest joy And yet I cannot pretend that the reading I have done in my adult years matches in its impact on my soul the reading I did as a child This seems to me the perfect book for booklovers The above quote really resonated with me as I can definitely relate to it This is an interesting story, situated in the world of literature Famous, reclusive author, Vida Winter, req [...]

Yes, this is a book for book lovers If I see that phrase in one review of this one I think I m going to scream So just to be fun, I decided to LISTEN to this book on audio because I m a rebel like that and I had severe morning sickness which rendered me unable to read 3 lines in a book without puking for over three months It wasn t the 5 screaming stars that I was almost expecting from reading some of my friends reviews, but I did like it a lot.Our story begins when Margaret Lea, a biographer, [...]

melissa413readsalotThis book was so good I can t believe I have had this book in my stacks for a few years now The story is so bizarre and sad I loved it When Margaret is called upon by Vida Winter, a famous author, to come and write her biography she has no idea what she is in for with this woman Vida tells the story of her life as a child, but she is not who she seems The twist ending threw me right off the bus I didn t see that one coming at all, but I should have expected something along tho [...]
