The Book of Mirrors
The Book of Mirrors | E.O. Chirovici
16 posts | 17 read | 14 to read
Sold in 38 territories around the world, THE BOOK OF MIRRORS is a truly global phenomenon. 'Intelligent and sophisticated - a crime story told the way Picasso painted pictures. Highly recommended.' Lee Child 'I loved this twisty mind game! The Book Of Mirrors starts with a secret manuscript about a cold-case murder and then uses a host of characters and perspectives to make you look in every direction but at the truth. Who is lying? Is anyone's recall perfect? This isn't just a very clever thriller---it leaves us wondering how much we subconsciously manipulate our own memories to protect ourselves.' Julia Heaberlin (bestselling author of Black Eyed Susans) 'A literary thriller - complex, gripping and a beautiful read.' Jenni Murray 'An elegant, gripping, multi-layered tale about the illusory nature of truth and memory. I loved it.' Tammy Cohen When big-shot literary agent Peter Katz receives an unfinished manuscript entitled The Book of Mirrors, he is intrigued. The author, Richard Flynn is writing a memoir about his time at Princeton in the late 80s, documenting his relationship with the famous Professor Joseph Wieder. One night in 1987, Wieder was brutally murdered in his home and the case was never solved. Peter Katz is hell-bent on getting to the bottom of what happened that night twenty-five years ago and is convinced the full manuscript will reveal who committed the violent crime. But other peoples recollections are dangerous weapons to play with, and this might be one memory that is best kept buried.

Listened to the audiobook. I was pleasantly surprised by this, love how the author structured this, developed the characters, and played with the concept of the unreliable narrator(s); really well done.

Can't do it. Avoid the audiobook, there is something off about the pacing and the sentences when it's read aloud.

MyNamesParadise I have the physical book out from the library so hopefully that is better!! 3y

Just did another book drop. I'm getting better at the 'being stealthy' thing. 😂 www.ibelieveinbookfairies.com

Cinfhen How awesome you have a whole campus to use!!! 3y
scripturient @Cinfhen That's actually the city centre of Duisburg, the town where I live. The building in the back is the opera house. :) (edited) 3y
Cinfhen It's beautiful 💗all I saw was gorgeous lawn and lovely looking buildings 😊I admire your book fairy skills 🦋🦄🦋 3y

Laura317 This is a thing? How fun! 3y
DrJAdMerricksson I must go check out this book fairy thing. Sounds fun! Ok, but, so....What is in the grass? Birds? 3y
scripturient @DrJAdMerricksson You should. It's so much fun. There are some big fat lazy pigeons sitting in the grass. 🐦😊 3y
drokka I didn't get a chance to see this when I was in Germany. I was ill my first tour day, so my mates did something else whilst I slept. (They live in Budberg). They had a festival when I was there (end of June) by the Schnapps building and had a yummy pastry/doughnut type thing but I don't remember what it's called. Anyway, lovely part of Germany Duisburg and environs. 3y
scripturient @drokka Wow, such a small world! We have family living in Budberg and a colleague is moving there this year. 😃 3y
DrJAdMerricksson @scripturient they look huge! And i went to the site. Bookmarked it. Plan to corral the family into it. We are all bibliophiles, and my sister and niece throw themselves into this kind of thing. I leave books at my inn occasionally, for travellers to snag. Has a note to 3y
DrJAdMerricksson Ugh.....Has a note to pass along (and please to leave a review, since most are indie/hybrid authors books I've gotten as a reviewer) 3y

MedaReadsAlot Fun! I just signed up to do it! 3y
elkeo_TheBookDragon Being stealthy seems to be the tricky part! I love seeing where you drop these - keep it up! 3y

🌟🌟 This book was just...meh. It had it's moments, but overall it was rather boring. Even when my audiobook-voice crush, Sebastian York (using one of his different nom-de-plums) unexpectedly showed up for the final act of the book...it couldn't save this fomulaic story for me.

It was better then i expected. Didn't not see that ending coming. But still i got many questions left at the end. And i am just thankful that the psychological parts that where mentioned was right for the most part.

I've read a book about mistery at an university and i truelly hated. Obedience was horrible especially if you are a psychology student. But i heard so many great things about book of mirrors that i'm willing to give it a try.

Next one, please! I've heard good things about this. 😃 P.S. (about twenty minutes later): I'm not sure I can deal with the horrible writing style. 😵

Robothugs Oh no 🙈maybe the story will distract you? 3y
MyNamesParadise Oh no don't tell me the writing is horrible!! If you haven't read it, read Night Film by Mariana Pessl. 3y
scripturient @MyNamesParadise Maybe it's just me. The frame narrative is ok but the manuscript that makes the main story sounds like what I'd expect from a beginning writer with lots of tedious, insignificant descriptions of details that bored me to tears. And don't get me started on the dialogues. It was like someone told the author that you can only present a character's past through their own telling people about it. So you have them going into elaborate .. 3y
scripturient ... talks in the way of 'and then I went to college and immediately knew I would make friends there. And then... And then...' I could feel sudden narcolepsy coming on. Sorry, that sounds mean and others may like this book, but I was annoyed very early on and simply couldn't continue. 3y

Joanne1 Oh so many good ones there. 3y
Donna_sBookMinute I'm reading "Swing Time" now. Added "Hame" to my TBR. 3y

#currentread Goldsboro book of the month. Just started. Let's see.

Anovelobsession This sounds super interesting 3y
ScorpioBookDreams Are you a Goldsboro book of the month club member too?! 3y
Oryx @ScorpioBookDreams Yes 😁 Although temporarily pausing my account, as I'm not massively into thriller/crime/fantasy and the seems to be a lot of those recently. I'll probably jump back in again in a few months though. In the meantime, plenty of temptation elsewhere on their website. Bad for my bank balance though! 3y

ScorpioBookDreams @Oryx @DeborahSmall and I have just been discussing the effect Goldsboro has on our bank balances!! 3y
DeborahSmall @Oryx @ScorpioBookDreams I'm ignoring their tempting emails for at least 2 weeks! 3y
Oryx @DeborahSmall @ScorpioBookDreams Yes. It's those emails. They get you. I'm trying to ignore the last couple too! I caved on The Nix though 😄 3y
DeborahSmall I caved on The Nix and 4321 and Waking Gods. I love thrillers and as you said so many! 3y
Oryx @DeborahSmall Just caved on Lincoln in the Bardo today! There were just too many good Litsy reviews to resist. Waking Gods is tempting too... 3y
DeborahSmall I didn't see Lincoln in the Bardo but I will definitely order it! 3y

#bookmail to cheer me up! Loving my numbered copy 👹 @ScorpioBookDreams has yours arrived yet? ❤️📚

ScorpioBookDreams The Nix has but not the book of mirrors. Mine usually doesn't arrive for another week! 3y
MyNamesParadise Lucky!! I really want this book! Mainly bc it was compared to Night Film! 3y
DeborahSmall @MyNamesParadise I'm looking forward to this. I'm at my mother in laws so couldn't bring it, from fear of it getting crushed in my bag, falling off the bed etc...but I'll start it on Monday if I've finished my next read x 3y

ScorpioBookDreams My book has finally arrived. You must be teacher's pet to get yours so early! X 😉😉 3y
DeborahSmall @ScorpioBookDreams I'm struggling to control my spending. Did you get Norse Mythology and Caraval? Xx 3y
ScorpioBookDreams I managed to get one of the limited edition Caravals and got a signed Norse Mythology from Waterstones as I had a voucher! What about you? X 3y
DeborahSmall @ScorpioBookDreams I missed out on the limited edition Caraval. Definitely going to buy Norse Mythology. Just have to wait to transfer money to my book buying account on Saturday x 3y
ScorpioBookDreams @DeborahSmall my spending with Goldsboro is getting out of control! I'm really trying to limit myself x 3y

Really didn't enjoy this book, despite the fact that it's been chosen as one to look out for in 2017. Full review forthcoming on lucindaisreading.wordpress.com
