characters The Savage Garden characters ☆ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook ´ Mark Mills Mark Mills ´ 4 Download The story of two murders four hundred years apart and the ties that bind them togetherFrom the author of the acclaimed national bestseller Amagansett comes an even remarkable novel set in the Tuscan hills the story of two murders four hundred years apart and the ties that bind them together Adam Banting a somewhat aimless young scholar at Cambridge University is called to his professor's office one afternoon and assigned a special summer project to write a scholarly monograph about a famous garden built in the 1500s Dedicated to the memory of Signor Docci's. A uick easy and absorbing read with a mildly compelling plot and an interesting cast of characters I wasn t too impressed with the uality of the writing though one of the reviews uoted on the jacket makes the rather outlandish claim that it s of Booker nominee standard but there s noticeable repetition of several phrases the sex scenes are frankly terrible and the dialogue is littered with slang that I don t think would have even existed in 1950s Britain let alone been understood by a remote community of Italians speaking conveniently perfect English as a second language Still the book has a satisfying conclusion which ties up all the loose ends of the plot and it was an enjoyable way to pass a couple of dull evenings

At a glance this book is an interesting blend of art history and mystery However as you begin reading it it turns out to be a total disappointmentFirst of all there are shabby dialoguesgosh I just can t believe that those phrases that the main characters employed in their daily life can be called dialogues at all For ex It s different What The sound How I don t know This is undoubtedly a real masterpiece And suchlike dialogues are everywhereThen there is the main character Adam He had been staying at Villa Docci for just a week but had already become so nosy and sometimes even impolite that I just wanted to stifle him One moment that killed me on the spot was when after dinner he asked the hostess granddaughter to stay at Villa because it was late and there was enough room for all of them I just wanted to yell at him Stop playing a host That s not your houseOk I understand that his immoderate curiosity was well planned from above but it looked really artificial and annoyingAnd of course there are mysteries Two murders At first you are really intrigued but when you reach the middle of the book everything becomes clear and you can just stop there because nothing really happens later onBy and large the premise was really good but its implementation was poorly done
