Title: The Bookworm
Author: Mitch Silver
Publish: 6 February 2018
My rate:★★★☆☆ 2.8/5 stars
This book is sort of stuffed one in which has mostly everything, a history fiction, mystery, political, romance and suspense. Story involves many historical people like Noel Coward, Hitler, Kennedy, Nostradamus and so on.
Larissa Mendelovg Klimt is a Geopolitical history professor in Russia who studied at a university in the US. She is one of the smart one that is proved as a soviet former chess champion. The story starts from her asked to translate 6 historical Dictaphone cylinders recordings that has hidden truth of the World War. Noel Coward and Kennedy conspired to artifice Hitler?
At the same time, Larissa’s twin brother Lev who is monitoring oil cultivating in Alaska finds his college died in suspect situation. It’s just a beginning of them both drawn to the danger.
Well, I have mixed feeling about this book. Some parts are very indulging, though other parts I found myself losing interest. There are many things happen and suddenly story gets boomed and turn to the action and suspense to the end. This book makes me willing to learn the world history more.
However…this is might be because of my lack of knowledge of history, I felt the things in this book just happen and it’s not come smoothly together, it seems inexplicable with not enough connection and motivation to the action in each characters perform.
As soon as I saw this beautiful book cover, I fell love with it. I wanted to like this book, but couldn’t get into it. This is one of the books I want to reread it later. 🙂
