Well they say a little knowledge is a dangerous thing In my case I studied Ottoman history in grad s

    PDF/EPUB Jason Goodwin î PDF/EPUB The Janissary Tree MOBI Ñ The Janissary Kindle - î myportal.pro janissary download, tree pdf, The Janissary epub, The Janissary Tree PDFThis book is very very encouraging for prospective authors of historical fiction By all means go ahead and write a book and don't bother to make any research there are enough idiots out there including myself with plenty of time and money to spend recklessly on a boring story and facts that don't simply match This is a waste Many of the names are made up; Yashim Preen Palmuk What the heck? These names are not Turkish at all The story transpires in 1836; there are visionary characters in the novel that have last names; a century before the relevant law was put into effect Murad Eslek? Ertogrul Aslan? There is no such thing as a Karagozi sect or group? Janissaries were Bektashis And the author must have known that because he even opens the book by one of

    PDF/EPUB Jason Goodwin î PDF/EPUB The Janissary Tree MOBI Ñ The Janissary Kindle - î myportal.pro janissary download, tree pdf, The Janissary epub, The Janissary Tree PDFThe setting of the The Janissary Tree is fascinating the novel takes place in 1836 in Istanbul with the Ottoman empire on the cusp between tradition and the modernity that will ultimately destroy it And the main character Yashim who is a eunuch certainly provides a twist on the traditional detective However I can’t say that I loved the novel as a novel rather than as a thinly veiled history lesson about a rather forgotten period in history In fact every character was ready to spout off pages of Ottoman history or the arrangement of the Sultan’s harem at the drop of a hat so that we the readers understood what was going on But since they actually lived through these events why would they spend so much time talking about them? That’s a completely unnatural novelistic contrivance As for Yashim himself I never felt like I got to know him at all throughout the course of th

    PDF/EPUB Jason Goodwin î PDF/EPUB The Janissary Tree MOBI Ñ The Janissary Kindle - î myportal.pro janissary download, tree pdf, The Janissary epub, The Janissary Tree PDFSurprised this won the Edgar Award Book was pretty dry and a little disjointed I suppose that when the hero was in mortal danger I was supposed to be nervous on his account but I wasn't The stakes if the eunuch failed his mission were pretty high four terrible murders about to be committed the sultan and his mother would be killed city in flames revolution and invasion no French novels but I was blithely unconcernedCompletely lacking in suspense Also it was pretty obvious who the thief was and who the ringleader of the Janissaries was as well since there weren't that many culprits to choose from ie two So when the end reveal happened I was like yes you should have guessed that 100 pages back Inspector but you had to spend all that valuable time making intricate dinners for yourself This being said it was not an altogether bad book and I will most likely read the seuel I just hope the seuel doesn't have GIANT paragraphs like this on
