    MOBI ´ DOC The Emperor's Children Hardcover Ý CITYBREAKSCHEAP The Emperor's ChildrenI only read about eight pages a stately procession of blindingly obvious sentences with laser pointers and strobelights and migraines between every fooking vowel and consonant but I don't need to read any This is exactly the sort of prose that should be excised from these mass NYC wuss fiction rollouts For example skipping forward to page 27 The insouciance of course masked endless and wearisome neuroses to which Marina and Danielle were privyOf

    MOBI ´ DOC The Emperor's Children Hardcover Ý CITYBREAKSCHEAP The Emperor's Children“Entitlement” said Danielle “It’s about a sense of entitlement”Pretty much sums up the book Claire Messud’s The Emperor’s Children is a very familiar story As soon as you start reading it you get the sense that you’ve been here before The setting New York City where roughly 64% of all novels take place and the characters over educated and entitled young people have been done before What sets The Emperor’s Children apart is a bit subtle For one the young people aren’t that young being in their early thirties this is young to me to be clear For another the time period – the novel begins in March 2001 and moves gradually towards you kno

    MOBI ´ DOC The Emperor's Children Hardcover Ý CITYBREAKSCHEAP The Emperor's ChildrenI didn’t start to get into this one until about 200 pages in when out of nowhere came intrigue scandal Until that point the characters came across as either too irritating or too false to grab me Seriously Ludovic Seeley? Bootie Tubb? Sounds like a cartoon villain and his sidekick I did find myself drawn in though around page 200 as I said and there were many instances at which I did really admire the author’s writing—whether for a particular turn of phrase

    MOBI ´ DOC The Emperor's Children Hardcover Ý CITYBREAKSCHEAP The Emperor's ChildrenI'm sure I wrote a review of this book Not sure where it went I read this book when it first came out one summer when staying at Harbin Hot Springs for the summer Read most of it outside under a tree each day I love this authorThe Woman Upstairs is my favorite I liked this book however my one problem with it was I felt the writing was MUCH sophisticated than the story itself I must have looked up vocabulary words in this book than 10 other fiction books combined Anything Claire Writes is worth reading
