The sweeping historical detail of this book carried me through the first third before something started to niggle I just couldn t engage with the characters and their reactions to things constantly surprised me as a reader I ofen find myself seeing and feeling through the eyes of a character but with this book I stayed an outside observer When I started to analyse what the probelm was I realised that although the author is very good at the history part when it comes to people she writes in a very spare and detached way She doesn t show the reader how a character is feeling she tells them which for me meant that I never felt what the characters were feeling It suprised me constantly that I didn t feel the fear and pain I was being told that the characters were experiencing and it meant that I spent the whole reading experience from the outside never being absorbed into it I couldn t help comparing it t
