    Isabel Allende was as always a good read Her new adventure into murder mysteries was delightful yet a bit drawn out and really over populated with too many characters For each character there was a comprehensive backstory and it became too much in the end for me The book is 512 pages and could have been at least 150 pages shorter It took most of the book to get all the backstories in before the murder mystery could really pick up

REVIEW El juego de Ripper

El juego de Ripper

Istic healer is a free spirited bohemian Long divorced from Amanda's father she's reluctant to settle down with either of the men who want her Alan the wealthy scion of one of San Francisco's elite families and Ryan an enigmatic scarred former Navy SEALWhile her mom looks for the good in people Amanda is fascinated by the dark side of human nature like her father the SFPD's Deputy Chief of Homicide Brilliant and introverted the MIT bound high school senior is a natural born sleuth addicted to crime novels and Ripper. Isabel Allende was as always a good read Her new adventure into murder mysteries was delightful yet a bit drawn out and really over populated with too many characters For each character there was a comprehensive backstory and it became too much in the end for me The book is 512 pages and could have been at least 150 pages shorter It took most of the book to get all the backstories in before the murder mystery could really pick up speed Maybe it was planned this way Most readers had a gripe with thisAs with all her books she introduces the loutish nature of some men but compensates with a bunch of good noble male persona as well She still entertains her readers with the power of family and a touch of mysticism in the supernatural powers around us The women are strong and resilient seductive beautiful and bossy Well some of them The young girl Amanda Mart n who sleuths with the help of her her online friends through a series of real murders was a bit too unbelievable for me They referred to the first murder as the Case of the Misplaced Baseball Bat so as not to insult the victim by giving it a explicit name They were five teenagers and an elderly man who met up online for a role playing game called Ripper Instead of keeping to her online game acting out in London of 1888 she moved the game to San Francisco 2011 never suspecting that her mother Indiana Jackson would number among its victims and the game would turn violent and deadly The game became a serious real life criminal investigation To top it off her godmother Celeste Roko the most famous astrologer in California made a bloodbath prediction for the last day of September 2011 Amanda always knew than the police sixteen years old and of course the police had to be told what to do by her Her father Deputy Chief Mart n constantly had to be corrected by her or had to report to her It was neither cute nor meaningful to me She was a nuisance actually But okay it s a novel It should be possible The circular tale starts out with Indiana Jackson missing Mom is still alive but she s going to be murdered at midnight on Good Friday Amanda Mart n told the deputy chief who didn t even think to uestion the girl she d already proved she knew than he and all his colleagues in Homicide put together The woman in uestion was being held at an unknown location somewhere in the seven thousand suare miles of the San Francisco Bay Area if they were to find her alive they had only a few hours and the deputy chief had no idea where or how to begin The way she talked and addressed her grandpa Blake Jackson had me rolling my eyes as well Cultural difference So yes for some people she probably was cute but for others like yours truly she was pirouetting on thin ice Blake Jackson a pharmacist by profession a book lover and wanna be author decided to chronicle the tumultuous events as it was predicted by Celeste Roko in a book he planned to write Of course his granddaughter Amanda would be his partner Like they were partners in the Ripper game as well In his novel he described his granddaughter Amanda as idiosyncratic of appearance timorous of character but magnificent of mind his baroue use of language distinguishing him from his peers His account of these fateful events would end up being much longer than he expected even though excepting a few flashbacks it spanned a period of only three months The critics were vicious dismissing his work as magical realism a literary style deemed pass but no one could prove he had distorted the events to make them seem supernatural since the San Francisco Police Department and the daily newspapers documented them Ms Allende reacts here to the media s criticism of her workAmanda is the main peanut in the packet in this book Since her fourteenth birthday she developed an obsession with Scandinavian crime novels a morbid interest in evil and premeditated murder in particular It worried the grandfather but Amanda put him in his place by reminding him that he was reading it too He could only leave her with a stern warning but knew it would make her just the curious Further now in direct breach of the rules she created for herself a henchman named Kabel a dim witted but loyal and obedient hunchback she tasked with obeying her every whim however ridiculous It didn t escape her grandfather s notice that the henchman s name was an anagram of his own At sixty four Blake Jackson was much too old for children s games but he agreed to participate in Ripper so he and his granddaughter would have something in common than horror movies chess matches and the brainteasers they set each other puzzles and problems he sometimes managed to solve by consulting a couple of friends who were professors of philosophy and mathematics at Berkeley Through her father s job as Deputy Chief of the homicide division of San Franciso s Personal Crimes Division Amanda discovered the evil in her idyllic city as well San Francisco was no different from Sweden or Norway The city was after all founded by rapacious prospectors polygamous preachers and women of easy virtue all lured by the gold rush of the mid nineteenth centuryAll the characters in the book are revolving around Indiana Jackson a massage therapist surrounded by her astrologer acupuncture yoga meditation and other gurus working in the same alternative health business She is the center of everyone s love devotion and needs Her ex husband Bob Martin Her father Blake Jackson her daughter Amanda her latest lover Alan Keller two other admirers Gary Brunswick Ryan Miller the ex navy SEAL and even a woman going though cancer treatment Carol Underwater A small network of good friends surrounded her Pedro Alarc n Matheus Pereira the artist with the grizzly paintings hanging all over the building and Yumiko Sato with her life partner Nana Sasaki Even Ryan s dog Atilla was infatuated with Indiana s natural smells He hated artificial smells and was such a sucker for natural aromas Indiana uickly became one of the traumatized ex war dog s favorite human beings because of that Attached to these colleagues and clients are yet another few people with their own dramas and stories such as the Farkas and Galespi families The different murder victims also had their own backstories And then somewhere near the beginning of the real mystery in the last 150 pages of the book The Wolf emerges No wonder Indiana disappeared They all had a serious or slight obsession about her She was just that kind of personThe busy novel did not always hold my attention but I still enjoyed the author s wit and humor her effortless way of creating the setting and getting an interesting story going Her outspokenness is vintage Allende and was just perfect Her social commentary which she lavishly sprinkled throughout the character building had me smiling all the way She used the opportunity to make fun of many people beliefs and institutions I just loved thatBUT BUT BUT dear oh dear oh dearI DID NOT LIKE THE ENDING AT ALL Ms Allende I love you but this ending was unforgivable If you do it again I will stop reading youOverall though I loved the experience The story was a huge bag filled with often funny social commentary character studies of various people fun sleuthing serious issues and satire A series of murders were solved and all the threads pulled together Not everyone loved this book in fact many groupies are angry But so were millions of readers angry with J K Rowling for changing course after Harry Potter Compared to her other books this was a light fun read with enough backbone to establish a good mystery Isabel Allende became famous for her highly successful books in the literary and memoir genres The themes were mostly dark and tragic From there she ventured into other genres such as Fantasy Zorro children s literature City of Beasts Young Adult Maya s Notebook historical fiction Ines of My Soul and Island Beneath The Sea This latest shift into mystery was a bit sidetracked by her love of character studies and family dramas It felt as though she almost forgot about the mystery Of course she did not I do think she might have to consider streamlining her tales removing the excess characters and their stories if she really wants to become a serious mystery writer which she clearly is not She even said this in the book Hopefully Isabel Allende will not stop writing great books for many years to come She is just uniue I remain a devoted fan Living to Tell the Tale A Guide to Writing Memoir good in people Amanda is fascinated by the dark side of human nature like her father the SFPD's Deputy Chief of Homicide Brilliant and introverted the MIT bound high school senior is a natural born sleuth addicted to crime

The online mystery game she plays with her beloved grandfather and friends around the worldWhen a string of strange murders occurs across the city Amanda plunges into her own investigation discovering before the police do that the deaths may be connected But the case becomes all too personal when Indiana suddenly vanishes Could her mother's disappearance be linked to the serial killer Now with her mother's life on the line the young detective must solve the most complex mystery she's ever faced before it's too late. Um YikesSo this is clearly an Allende novel because her style and voice as an author are so distinct There is no doubt in my mind that she wrote this book and that is what is most shocking Isabel Allende wrote THIS bookThis is a crime novel not a mystery but a crime novel If you are expecting a who done it or spot the murderer type of book then definitely go elsewhere This novel is about the process of crime investigation which has never been a prevalent theme in Allende s writing so why all of a sudden did she chose to go down this pathIt is so far out of the author s wheelhouse and good for her for taking risks but in no way is this a successful novel It has overly detailed and complicated characters pages and pages of backstory for every single person mentioned that derails the story and forces the main plot into a far distant easily forgotten place in the reader s mind The book starts off describing a chilling and bizarre crime that instantly grabs your attention But within five pages the focus is yanked away never to return This book is so bogged down with character study that there is barely a discernible plot for 99% of the novel A tremendous flop And good for Allende If you are going to take a risk do so without compromise She wrote a crime novel and she did it on her own terms and it is an awful awful read Kudos155
