I LOVE historical ghost stories, so I was a bit disappointed because this is really a drama where one person claims to have seen a ghost. There is no supernatural tension, no suspense. The novel has many characters and the author managed to give each one a distinctive personality. But I would have preferred a smaller cast of characters with a deeper exploration of their motivations and personal histories. The main character is a good mix of inner turmoil/redeeming qualities/small flaws. The author did a wonderful job of describing Cambridge, England, in the late 1700s: I felt like I was there. It is well-written, with a few plot twists I hadn't anticipated. A good read, but not a book I would read again.
** spoiler alert ** This one started out really slow. One of the Saudi princes is fed up with the ridiculous spending of the the other 3000 or so princes, so he hatches a plan with the French to detroy all the Saudi oil rig things so he can take over the kingdom and get it back to the Beduoin way. In return the French get all the contracts to rebuild. Well this happens and of course causes a worldwide economic catastrophe. The Americans find out about it and try to prove what happen. They succeed, France gets in big trouble, and the Americans get the new contracts to help out the Saudis. Anyway, the pace quickly picked up and I ended up getting really into it. My biggest complaint was that the military speak could get a little confusing, but other than that I liked it pretty good. I give it a B-.
"Twelfth Night" caught me by surprise. I'm not interested in many "out dated" literature, but I really liked this book. The comedic structure of the plot made it entertaining for it to read and watch. The book wasn't so hard to mentally picture, but the movie did help understand to a higher extent. I liked how all (or most) of the characters were relatable, either in their personalities or situations. The way Shakespeare was able to coincide love with mistimings and misunderstandings was enjoyable to read and watch. Highly recommended.
