“A cross between Umberto Eco and Anne Rice”. SOLD!

Found a nice little indie bookshop near Pike Place Market. I wish I had more time to browse but they were closing.

I finished this book a couple of weeks ago and I‘m still digesting it. It was fantastic. There is an old movie loosely based on this book: “The Ninth Gate” with Johnny Depp, and it‘s not nearly as good as the book. Now I want to get my hands on a Spanish copy since the author is from Spain.

Took a walk to my local Little Library to drop off a copy of The Woman In The Window by AJ Finn, and I was able to pick up The Club Dumas! Bookish fortune is in my favor today, it seems 🤗

Just finished this book - I couldn't put it down. Mystery, feuilleton and unexpected villain(s?). #mystery #spanishreads

GarthRanzz I loved this book! Have you ever seen the movie version, The Ninth Gate? 2y
CarolynM My husband loves this guy's books. I'll have to tell him about the movie @GarthRanzz 2y
Xeroaa13 @GarthRanzz No, I did not see the movie, but it is from Roman Polanski with Johnny Depp, I should give a try! @CarolynM does your husband recommend another one of this author's books? 2y
CarolynM He says this one is his favourite 2y
Xeroaa13 Thanks @CarolynM ! I will research it :) I have the Fencing master in ebook format. Any thoughts on it? 2y

I finished this back at the beginning of February and forgot to post a small review. If you‘ve ever seen The Ninth Gate you have to read this book it was based on. Polanski did a great job adapting the material but there is so much more. Like the entirety of the Dumas manuscript. I want to be Lucas Corso, hunting down old books. But with the heart of Peter Byerly in The Bookman‘s Tale by Charlie Lovett.

TricksyTails I love the movie The Ninth Gate! One of my faves! 🖤 2y
GarthRanzz @TricksyTails It‘s my favourite Johnny Depp movie! 2y
TricksyTails I had to think about that for a bit because...Johnny Depp! But I think it‘s mine too! I love this movie so much! 2y

I‘ll be reading of course. Won‘t even bother having the game on in the background. I plan on finishing up The Club Dumas. Already rewatched The Ninth Gate last night while reading and it gave me the opportunity to have both fresh in my mind to compare. Still my favorite Johnny Depp movie, the book has now become a favorite as well, even before finishing.

When I started the book I did not realize that the movie “The Ninth Gate” was based of the book. The book is good I liked the literary detective work that was done in story. I like the movie but the book is better and more interesting.

Laalaleighh This has been on my tbr for awhile. How is it? 2y
Reggie Is this what the 9th Gate is based off of? I love that movie!!!! 2y
Texreader I think I've read this one but can't remember! Hate that! Well maybe I need to read/re-read 2y

saresmoore I think I prefer Milton's, too, although Mephistopheles is a fabulous character. I wonder how The Master & Margarita will add to this (obviously hell-bent & possibly satanist 😜) conversation. 2y
vivastory @Laalaleighh I like it quite a bit, although the female characters are poorly written. 2y
vivastory @Reggie Yep! The book is quite a bit better imo 2y
vivastory @Texreader It's a quick read 2y
vivastory @saresmoore I definitely prefer Milton's. I love the Inferno (I've read it three times) but Satan is fairly one dimensional in it. Milton's is definitely the accidental hero of Paradise Lost. 2y
DGRachel This was the first book I read by this author. I don't remember much, other than I really enjoyed it, and started buying up all of his books. 😊 2y
vivastory @DGRachel What others do you recommend? 2y
Laalaleighh @saresmoore is there going to be a master and the margarita read through? 2y
DGRachel I read this one before I started keeping notes, but I did give it 4 stars on Goodreads. 2y
DGRachel And I like the MC in this series: 2y
vivastory @Laalaleighh Yes, @saresmoore is beginning the start of August and I'm starting on the 4th. It'd be great to have you join! 2y
vivastory @DGRachel Those both sound great. Stacked!! 2y
saresmoore @Laalaleighh Yes, join us if you can! It's one I'm really looking forward to. 2y
Laalaleighh Oh I just bought it I am soooooo in @saresmoore 2y
Laalaleighh @saresmoore @vivastory is there a post about it anywhere? (edited) 2y
saresmoore @Laalaleighh No post; it's very informal. :) We just both hadn't read it yet. It will be fun to discuss, I think! 2y

Mehso-so

It is an easy to read mystery story centered around The Three Musketeers by Alexandre Dumas (which I haven't read yet). A hand written chapter of this book sets in motion a lot of action mixed with occult aspects and satan worshipping. I read it almost in one go, wanted the mystery to be solved. So that is good.
Now I know I am a bit disappointed and guess that I won't remember this book for long. #1001books

Skulduggery surrounds the rare handwritten chapter of The Three Musketeers held by rare book man Corso - and it closely resembles some of the action therein. Corso is also investigating the remaining three copies of the Book of the Nine Doors of the Kingdom of Shadows, a purported manual for summoning the devil. Of course, it's possible that the devil may be far closer than he thinks. #currently reading

My pick for character who is better in the movie is Corso, from The Club Dumas. The first hour of this movie is genius! It kind of falls apart after that, but Johnny Depp was amazing as Corso #octphotochallenge
