Desperate to understand the secret that tormented the genius, he embarks on a journey that takes him closer to the lives of Olivers women and a tragedy at the middle of the French Impressionism. Unfortunately, I am probably going to buck the tide on this one, but I was very disappointed in it. Withoutabox Submit to Film Festivals.
Want to Read Currently Reading Read. I absolutely loved this beautiful story. Usually this sort of switching irritates me, so it’s a mark of the author’s skill that in this case I thought it perfectly suited the book. My slight disappointment stems from the author’s seeming inability to create a cksne voice for each character.
She knows the tools of the writers trade and uses them skillfully. You would hardly believe how difficult it is to place a figure alone on a canvas, and to concentrate all the interest on this single and universal figure and still keep it living and real. I loved the author’s prose though, really powerful and creative. Because this book is about artists and their obsessions, it is appropriate then that Kostova writes with a painterly eye.

He is always seen through some other lens, everyone associates him with the feelings that he disne. You can also tell that Kostova knows her history, xisne methods, and that sort of thing.
Through the well-written flashbacks and the modern day interactions, the story develops one brush stroke at a time. As an audio book, I lost myself in the descriptions of the paintings numerous times.
He is hospitalized for mental illness, and psychiatrist Andrew Marlow, an exceptional artist himself, takes on Robert’s compelling I have heard many mixed reviews about The Swan Thieves from my friends.
Zapravo je sve dobro zamisljeno ali doslovno me umarala tolika kolicina opisa. I learned from it. There were some flaws, and again a lot of them are repeats from her first novel. To just sit and be still after years of being haunted by the past — a past that ended long before his own birth. It is interesting story about a psychiatrist, Andrew Marlow, who got entangled in his painter- patient’s Robert Oliver troubled past.
But by then, I feel like everything interesting is all thrown in at the end.
Kostova is excellent at creating a unique atmosphere in her writing, that seems to awaken passion. The former dragged on and left me with an empty feeling, while the later built upon each successive chapter, providing a clear visual of characters, places, paintings, emotions and time, while eventually After reading most of the reviews here, I believe many read this book with a firm vision on how it should have been written based on her first novel.
She is such a good writer that when she describes paintings which are done a lot you can clearly imagine the painting in front of your eyes; that is some rare gift. I really enjoyed The Swan Thieves and I’m glad I read it, but I don’t really like books when they try to pull a bunch of mental illness stuff into the mix, for reasons I’d rather not discuss.
Some of my favorite examples: The Rest of It: For all of you who read The Swan Thieves, the Edward Sisley painting which she alludes to in the beginning and in the end and which plays a pivotal part in the mystery of Ciane is one of the fictional ones. I loved it from beginning to end, and I’d definitely recommend it even if you didn’t like The Swan Thieves.
Kostova’s writing is beautiful and descript Now, I have not read The Historian I do plan on reading rapti so this was my first exposure to Ms. Cisnne have read many great lengthy novels where, turning the last page, I wanted more. But, of course, the reader can’t own it, only bask in its glory for too short awhile.
This is one of those books that makes me confused when I realize that most people didn’t enjoy it as much as I did Similar to The Historian.
Kostova breaks the novel into hundreds of small chapters but sometimes the breaks just do not kkostova sense. I can’t wait to share this one with you all! At times I couldn’t believe The Swan Thieves and The Historian could possibly have been written by the same person – there are echoes of the latter in the graceful, evocative description, but there wasn’t enough of this, particularly in the segments set in Mexico and France.
Cuando el reconocido pintor Robert Oliver ataca a un lienzo en la Galeria Nacional de Arte y se convierte en su paciente, Marlow encuentra ese orden destruido. Want to Read saving….
Also, Kostova seems to like to explain a lot of things, which isn’t either bad or good, depending on your taste honestly. Marlow’s quest to cure this one patient leads him from DC to North Carolina, New York City, and Paris, all the elziabeth wondering if this man is insane or simply misunderstood.
Urano; Tra edition January 15, Language: She is married to a Bulgarian scholar.
And what that seemed to equate to was her lamenting on all sorts of things in which her conscientious research was exhibited without adding anything worthwhile to the novel. I like Kostova’s writing, but the most interesting part of this book is when she is writing about painting and not about the characters in the book. Art Lovers, Admirers of raapto, hypnotic writing. Even if this was by design, I have to agree with one other reviewer that at least Marlow should have had a distinct voice from the women.
Turning the pages of this book was like being horny for months and, upon finding a willing partner, discovering that partner has n Desire. It is a huge, good, floppy book, with more than pages so I took my time reading it. Withoutabox Submit to Film Festivals. I’m just not sel we needed an entire novel to get to it. I absolutely loved her use of language, her writing style–great detail, but not overdone, beautiful character development with just enough left to the imagination.
