    PDF/EPUB transportjobsite.co.uk · The Glass of Time PDF Ë The Glass PDF \ glass ebok, time pdf, The Glass ebok, The Glass of Time PDFEPUBGripping from the first page this is a note perfect pastiche of Victorian gothic fiction remaining fantastically atmospheric throughout With the naive young narrator beautiful country house brimming with secrets and unwelcoming housekeeper it has definite echoes of Daphne du Maurier's Rebecca but is a strong enough story in its own right to overcome the comparison It's filled with brilliant details the character names such as that of the heroine Esperanza Gorst are a joy in themselves The mysterious nature of the story with the protagonist knowing as little as the reader about the 'Great Task' she has been sent to undertake constantly sustained my interest and the twist heavy plot kept me guessing through to the final chapters I did predict some of the main revelations yet there were still plenty I hadn't even thought about However the most surprising thing about this book for me at

    PDF/EPUB transportjobsite.co.uk · The Glass of Time PDF Ë The Glass PDF \ glass ebok, time pdf, The Glass ebok, The Glass of Time PDFEPUBI don’t give out five stars easily but I was completely entranced by this book The uality of the storytelling drew me in immediately and the intriguing plot kept me turning the pages long into the night It’s hard to describe the story without giving away any of its many secrets It’s set in 1876 and although it was written only recently it’s presented in the writing style of a Victoriana mystery a mood the author captures perfectly Esperanza is sent by her guardian Madame to be a lady’s maid to the highly strung Lady Tansor Madame tells Esperanza that in this new role she is to undertake a 'Great Task' which will right a wrong in which she has a vested interest She then slowly begins to reveal the details of this task and all the long held secrets it enco

    PDF/EPUB transportjobsite.co.uk · The Glass of Time PDF Ë The Glass PDF \ glass ebok, time pdf, The Glass ebok, The Glass of Time PDFEPUBI'm a bit disappointed in this follow up to THE MEANING OF NIGHT my favorite book of 2006 I recommend reading that book before reading this book Otherwise I think one would become confused with all the information thats crammed in at the end of this story apparently in order to make sense of the storyline

    PDF/EPUB transportjobsite.co.uk · The Glass of Time PDF Ë The Glass PDF \ glass ebok, time pdf, The Glass ebok, The Glass of Time PDFEPUBOnce again I give five stars to a book that actually isn't all that great but nonetheless delivers many hours of enjoyable reading I don't think Cox was trying for great lit'ratcha here so five it is There's a wonderful sense throughout this book that the author is always with you looking over after each scene to raise an eyebrow or wink but it's very subtle I wonder if that's in the books of the actual period none of which I have read for years It's a big book and by the end there can't be than two semi major characters who turned out to be only what they appeared to be This is book two of two but I understand that it stands alone uite

    PDF/EPUB transportjobsite.co.uk · The Glass of Time PDF Ë The Glass PDF \ glass ebok, time pdf, The Glass ebok, The Glass of Time PDFEPUBWhen I first picked up this book I hadn't realized that it was a seuel to the Meaning of Night I just saw that it was written by Michael Cox and being such a big fan of his first novel I had to read it Once I started to read the book and recognized some important names from Night I was doubly pleased to turn each and every pageThis is yet another amazing work by Michael Cox Without giving away too much I'll just say that it expands on and continues the events as described in the Meaning of NightThe story is narrated in the first person by Esperanza Gorst a woman who was orphaned and raised in France by a surrogate mother and a tutor whom she greatly respects When she's 19 her surrogate French mother tells her that she must leave the home that sh

    PDF/EPUB transportjobsite.co.uk · The Glass of Time PDF Ë The Glass PDF \ glass ebok, time pdf, The Glass ebok, The Glass of Time PDFEPUBThis is the seuel to Michael Cox's The Meaning of Night Although I don't think it's absolutely necessary to read the books in the correct order it would make sense to do so You'll definitely get the most out of this book if you've read the previous novel first and are already familiar with the plot and the charactersThe way The Meaning of Nig

    PDF/EPUB transportjobsite.co.uk · The Glass of Time PDF Ë The Glass PDF \ glass ebok, time pdf, The Glass ebok, The Glass of Time PDFEPUBA seuel to The Meaning of Night this book was fairly predictible I knew right off who the main character was who her mysterious guardians were and had a feeling about how this would end I did prefer Esperanza's narration in this book over Edward's narration in The Meaning of Night Esperanza was much of a likeable character than Edward Spoiler opinion Frankly if the author didn't want to tip off his readers he should have written his Edward character to have a little creativity That character loves the initials EG Edward Glyver Edward Glapthorn Edwin Gorst I'm pretty sure Dr Edmund Grendon and he named his daughter Esperanza Gorst The only time Edward uses an entirely different pseudonym is when he is his daughter's tutor and I still figured ou

    PDF/EPUB transportjobsite.co.uk · The Glass of Time PDF Ë The Glass PDF \ glass ebok, time pdf, The Glass ebok, The Glass of Time PDFEPUBNot nearly as good as The Meaning of Night which I would label a masterpiece of pastiche sensational Victoriana This one lacks the overriding suspense mysterious onion skin nuance of its predecessor the story here is rather flat with very little action though certain scenes were still gripping the twists are telegraphed well ahead of the characters' on page perception That being said the writing is still gooddespite it randomly slipping into present tense for no reason I could see Weird Apparently the author passed away not long after publication so we'll never know what other pastiche goodness was lurking unformed in his brain Shame that as he obviously shared my love for Wilki
