Dependent Origination

Swan Thieves

Posted on: August 20, 2010

看了很失望。本来很喜欢Historian的。所以看到她又写了第二本小说还挺兴奋的。可是书看到一半几乎就看不下去了。太多细节了。受不了了。天才艺术家我已经见识过了,这些女人个个都以为他爱自己,可是他更爱艺术。否则他就不是天才艺术家了。所以Kate的故事我还看下去了,虽然觉得她和robert的相逢也太诡异了。到了Mary, 我完全没有任何兴趣了,不管她多么优雅迷人。

结尾的时候还挺好看的。puzzle的last piece finally falls into place的时候还挺激动人心的。可是好像铺垫了六百多页啊拜托。其实Historian也是一个很长很复杂的故事,但是情节人物故事都很吸引人,所以我们当然要看下去啦。 这个,实在是另外一回事儿了。I don’t exactly care for any of the characters。Except Beatrice。

Beatrice的这个部分呢,和Possession太像了。 还有一个像的小说,Spring Moon。

关于这本书最巧的地方是我正好刚刚看了birth of impressionism的展览,所以书里提到的几副画我都还有印象。Hold这本书的时候完全没有想过还有这个联系。Birth of Impressionism还是很好看的。里面有一副Magpie的画,印象好深刻,仿佛一下子回到了纽约还是北京的冬天。等着九月份还是十月份去看下一个展览啦。
