The Baltimore Boys
The Baltimore Boys | Joël Dicker
12 posts | 21 read | 1 reading | 8 to read
Fresh from the staggering success of The Truth about the Harry Quebert Affair, Marcus Goldman is struggling to write his third novel. A chance encounter in Florida throws him some inspiration from a surprising source: Alexandra Neville, the beautiful, phenomenally successful singer and Marcus's first love. All at once, memories of his childhood come flooding back. Memories of a family torn apart by tragedy, and a once glorious legacy reduced to shame and ruin. The Baltimore Boys. The Goldman Gang. That was what they called Marcus, and his cousins Hillel and Woody. Three brilliant young men with their whole lives ahead of them, before their kingdom crumbled beneath the weight of lies, jealousy and betrayal. For years, Marcus has struggled with the burdens of his past, but now, he must attempt to banish his demons and tell the real story of the Baltimore Boys.

I spent a few days on vacation and this is the only book that I have been able to finished. It's okay as beach-read, but my expectations was to high, because I really liked his first book. Main character is the same as it is in the Harry Quebert Affair,but this time the story is focusing on family secrets and their consequences. Suspense is created with some 'cheap tricks' from mystery books and this is the reason why I don't like the story.⭐️⭐️⭐️

BarbaraBB Ah too bad that it wasn't as good as 2y
Simona @BarbaraBB I was the victim of high expectations based on the previous book and I didn't check the reviews before I started reading ... but I'm still curious about his future works 👍 2y
batsy That's too bad. I have the first one and I'm looking forward to it, glad to hear you liked that 👍 2y

irre Too bad it wasn't as good. I've been wanting to read it because I loved (edited) 2y
Simona @batsy @irre Don't be distracted by my personal disappointment, it's very readable! 2y
SaraFair Love how you did this picture! 2y
irre It doesn't seem like it's been published by a US publisher. Where did you buy it? 2y
Simona @SaraFair Thanks 😊 2y
Simona @irre I have Slovenian translation. I was wondering today, when I was browsing through reviews on GR, why they are so few in English ... I guess that's the reason. You can buy it on Book Depository https://www.bookdepository.com/The-Baltimore-Boys-Joel-Dicker-Alison-Anderson/97... 2y
irre Thank you! 2y
llauraff I‘m with you .... I was the victim of high expectations too, but the book is very readable and at last I wanted to know how the writer closed the circle ..... (edited) 1y
Simona @llauraff Yes it‘s readable, and maybe I was to harsh, because of my disappointment... 1y

I'm done with the #24in48
My final result is 16 hours and 28 minutes, I finished Dance with Dragons - 600 pages and I have started The Baltimore Boys - 148 pages.

Congratulations to all readathoners and thanks to @24in48 for organizing this nice, fun #readathon weekend❣️

Jinjer What a cute scruffy puppy!!! 2y
SaraFair There's some terrier in that puppy! 2y
Simona @SaraFair Judging by her stubbornness and her 'hair style' - for sure! She is from animal shelter and they have found puppies (4 sisters and 1 brother) and they all looked different. 2y
SaraFair Could be different dads! A doggie dna test would be fun. 2y

#SnacksAndStacks for #24in48 #readathon
My current snack are fresh blueberries with dried cranberries and English tea with cream 😋 and I really want to finish with Dance with Dragons (still 250p to read) and I really want to start with the tagged book ... sweet bookish dilemmas 🤔

I'm finding it less engaging than the other one, even if I read 200 pages in one day. It's not a proper mystery, that's the thing, I think. In any case my breakfast will be great in this company.
