    The Secret History of Moscow ePUB ´ The SecreteBook secret book, history epub, moscow pdf, The Secret mobile, History of mobile, Secret History of download, The Secret History of Moscow ePUBThe Secret History of Moscow is judging by the wide range of reviews the literary euivalent of an optical illusionYou might read it and feel disconnected from the characters as if you were living in a grey ice slushy day with errands to run that mean wet boots and snow down your neck Or you might read it and see the characters as part of a cultural mosaic set against the background of gentle fat flakes of snow falling out of a soft grey sky the air crisp and fresh The first time I read it it was of the first The second I was concentrating less on the primary characters and plot and enjoying the tale within a tale style that gave tiny glimpses into Moscow and by extension Russia Yakov tried to keep the disappointment out of his voice Nothing

    The Secret History of Moscow ePUB ´ The SecreteBook secret book, history epub, moscow pdf, The Secret mobile, History of mobile, Secret History of download, The Secret History of Moscow ePUB25When I saw the reviews for this book I saw it discussed as a mixture of Neverwhere and American Gods two books I love from Neil Gaiman And while the comparison is a fair one when it comes to the premise of the story it doesn't really live up to the comparison in executionI wanted to love this book It's right up my alley and it's a book that I should've loved but while it was interesting it just sort of fell flat I think mostly it's because the characters never seemed really developed to me Whether mortal or mythical they didn't breatheAlso the pacing The first part of the story slowly unfolds as we learn the stories of the various players as they sort of meander around life and then on their uests but then the ending sort of happens all at once and I kept thinking I was missing pages or something because it all came together too neatly without any real rhyme or reason getting there It sort of just happenedThere were good things to it I really liked learning about both Russi

    The Secret History of Moscow ePUB ´ The SecreteBook secret book, history epub, moscow pdf, The Secret mobile, History of mobile, Secret History of download, The Secret History of Moscow ePUBI loved it I'm even tempted to rate it closer to a 910 Probably it was easier for me a native of Eastern Europe to relate with the slavic mythological characters and with the post communist social commentary and this familiarity probably made me rate it higher than if this were set in a western capitalist metropolis Anyway I find the style of Sedia very appealing to my tastes after Secret History and Alchemy of Stone and I will be looking forward to her next books
