I read Hislop s latest around X mas in the uiet of the night Very promising at first but the novel is so plot driven it is infuriating No character development many inconsistencies in the plot some bad Greek she should have asked her Greek friends to proofread I kept reading because the main part of the plot happens during World War II in Thessaloniki my home town and that was such a dramatic time for the city To be fair her descriptions are good and memorable But the book could have been so much better

The Thread review Ú E-book, or Kindle E-pub Tessalonica 1917 No dia em ue Dimitri Komninos nasce um incêndio devastador varre a próspera cidade grega onde cristãos judeus e muçulmanos vivem lado a lado Cinco anos mais tarde a casa de Katerina Sarafoglou na Ásia Menor é destruída pelo exército turco No meio do caos Katerina perde. On the surface this melodramatic historical novel sounds appealing and interesting When I heard the book was set in Thessaloniki the town of my great grandmother and that it dealt with Jewish and Sephardic heritage I was intriguedHowever after 50 pages or so the book s weaknesses started to outperform its strengths Hislop s writing is very mediocre When she wants to compare something or show a contrasting situation she inevitably uses a simple metaphor to get the point across The dialogue was simple and corny Her characters were completely flat Good or bad evil or moral Poor or rich There was no in between and very little gray area As others have mentioned the rich were generally seen as corrupt and unsympathetic while the poor were honest hardworking and lovingThere were also inconsistencies within the novel In one sentence she writes that it was almost impossible to get lost in the city and 4 pages later Eugenia gets lost and finds the little churchAny emotions or feelings the characters had was told rather than shown and sometimes neither Thus it was very hard to identify with them While the history of the city and Greece as a whole was something new and informative the author was inconsistent again some major events took up several chapters while others were glossed over in a few paragraphs It was too obvious she was simply interested in using the events to interweave the characters livesMediocre
