    Read & download × The Secret History of Moscow ´ E-book or Kindle E-pub The Secret History of MoscowThe Secret History of Moscow reads like a fusion of Neil Gaiman's Neverwhere and American Gods only set in Moscow and populated by Slavic deitiesOn the one hand I can't say that I'm much enamoured by any of our protagonists which is not to say that they are not good characters They are in fact rather well written individuals with layers of personality and lots of spirit I just happen not to like any of them As always I've fallen for the minor league players It's doubly fascinating when Sedia writes for them their own mini biographies What is interesting than hearing about other peoples' lives provided that they lived something worth listening toMoscow itself is that rather well used picture of a grey and used city Its citizens seem to live on the edge or barely live at all; remembering either the glorious past or the bleakness of the present It's something that's rather typical in Russian literature from Tolstoy and Chekhov to Lukyanenko and his compatriots It woul

    Read & download × The Secret History of Moscow ´ E-book or Kindle E-pub The Secret History of Moscow25When I saw the reviews for this book I saw it discussed as a mixture of Neverwhere and American Gods two books I love from Neil Gaiman And while the comparison is a fair one when it comes to the premise of the story it doesn't really live up to the comparison in executionI wanted to love this book It's right up my alley and it's a book that I should've loved but while it was interesting it just sort of fell flat I think mostly it's becau

    Read & download × The Secret History of Moscow ´ E-book or Kindle E-pub The Secret History of MoscowI really wanted to like this but I just couldn't do it The concept sounded fascinating people turning into jackdaws a hidden mythological underground Russian folklore but it was such a pain to read Galina was obnoxious and there wasn't enough to the other characters to give them anything And she can't write dialogue This was probably some of the worst dialogue I've read in a while The prose and the descriptions of what people felt was okay but the dialogue and even action seuences were awful The stories actually were probab
