    Oh yes this woman really LOVES Greece That was on my mind while reading The ThreadReminded me of my thoughts exactly when many years ago I was devouring The IslandIt' s so obvious that Victoria Hislop has done an immense historical research about greek history before writing her books That's why she can so thoroughly narrate big parts of it as a background of her plots The action is captivating and easy to follow Inter

Summary The Thread

The Thread

Tessalonica 1917 No dia em ue Dimitri Komninos nasce um incêndio devastador varre a próspera cidade grega onde cristãos judeus e muçulmanos vivem lado a lado Cinco anos mais tarde a casa de Katerina Sarafoglou na Ásia Menor é destruída pelo exército turco No meio do caos Katerina perde. I really enjoyed The Island despite its flaws and I was hoping for a similarly good plot with The Thread but I was pretty disappointedThe history of the novel was interesting but it really dragged on and on in the last uarter of the book as there was no climactic scene like in The Island On the face of it the novel was fine but there were just too many problems with it for me to give it than two stars For a start all the characters were either good or bad selfish or selfless The poor were wonderful people with tonnes of friends and the rich only cared about money and were ultimately miserable and alone I realise the Moreno family was an exception to this but they still chose to live in the poorest part of the city and were therefore wonderfulI also had issues with inconsistencies in characters like the fact that Hislop makes a point of saying the twins have little in common besides their looks before going on to say they both want to be tobacco graders they both dislike school and have no interest in their mother s weaving and later on they are practically finishing each other s sentencesIt bugged me that there was very little reason given for why Eugenia takes in the five year old Katerina and raises her and no real gratitude or reflection on this from Katerina s point of view Later on Katerina says the fact that a soldier picked her up and threw her on a boat out of dangerous Smyrna as the greatest kindness that s ever been shown to me Err what about a woman taking you in feeding you clothing you and making you part of her family without anyone even asking her to There were moments and inconsistencies like that throughout the novel which just wound me up There was simply too much stuff happening and too many characters to make anything in particularly meaningful in my view I wanted Hislop to stop take a breath and really explore what was going on in a scene or era it seemed rushed and not nearly enough attention was given to the narrative which seemed confused in placesI enjoyed learning about the history of the city which I wouldn t have discovered otherwise but the actual story and how it was told left a lot to be desired A Sisters Secret tarde a casa de Katerina Sarafoglou na Ásia Menor é destruída pelo exército Arabella / Bath Tangle / The Nonesuch turco No meio do caos Katerina perde.
