    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 situ

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 The sweeping historical detail of this book carried me through the first third before something started to niggle I just couldn t engage with the characters and their reactions to things constantly surprised me as a reader I ofen find myself seeing and feeling through the eyes of a character but with this book I stayed an outside observer When I started to analyse what the probelm was I realised that although the author is very good at the history part when it comes to people she writes in a very spare and detached way She doesn t show the reader how a character is feeling she tells them which for me meant that I never felt what the characters were feeling It suprised me constantly that I didn t feel the fear and pain I was being told that the characters were experiencing and it meant that I spent the whole reading experience from the outside never being absorbed into it I couldn t help comparing it to City of Shadows by Ariana Franklin the late Diana Normanwhich begins in Berlin in 1922 and looks at the rise of Nazism from a Jewish and German perspective I have never felt oppression and fear like I did in that book and it stayed with me for a very long time afterwards If I could give any advice to Ms Hislop it would be to please SHOW not TELL
