    One thought on “Strindberg's Star”

    1. I received this book through First Reads.Normally, this isn t my kind of genre But the description for this giveaway boasted Lisbeth Salander meets Robert Langdon A fan of the Millennium trilogy, as well as Angels Demons, I decided to give this a shot Instead, I was reminded why I steer away.The writing is far from smooth It switches between characters plot lines like crazy, I found it hard to follow This is in addition to a far fetched plot characters that have absolutely no personality It was [...]

    2. The year was 1897 Nils Strindberg traveled with several companions Their balloon crashed in the North Pole during the Andree Expedition What they left behind to this day still has people searching.Erik Hall was checking out pictures of other mine explorers One that had Erik s attention was of two women who went cave diving near where Erik lives Erik decided to go explore the cave for himself He finds than he bargained for with a dead body The body is holding an ankh.Don Titelman is a religious [...]

    3. I couldn t put this book down because I wanted to finish it and get it over with It s very rare indeed that I don t finish a book but I can t justify the time I spent reading this one The characters are less than realistic, the plot was convoluted and not in a twisty, mystery way There were so many things that were just out of synch with my thought processes After I slogged through this book to the end I had hoped that something worth while would have happened, but no Even the ending left too ma [...]

    4. U ovom zanimljivom romanu isprepli u se povijest i fantastika Glede povijesti, dio povijesti s kojim su povezani doga aji u ovoj knjizi je 2 svjetski rat, konkretnije vladavina Hitlera i nacista, no glavni fokus ipak je na onom fantasti nom dijelu, otkrivanju zna enja tajanstvenog simbola ankha i toga tko stoji iza smrti ronioca koji ga je prona ao Postojanje tajnog bunkera koji je Hitler dao izgraditi, a o kojem se naga a i teoretizira u mnogim knji evnim djelima koja se bave nacistima i njihov [...]

    5. I m not sure I ve ever had such an aggravating experience in reading a book What I had was an electronic review copy with the editor s notes in the margins Interesting, sure, but that meant an already unwieldy format DRM protected PDF was almost useless on my Sony The text was too small to read at normal size, and once you zoomed in not only did the lines break in awkward places as PDFs tend to do , but the editor s notes merged into the body of the text, making for some really confusing passag [...]

    6. I liked the historical aspects of this book the most I was a little worried when the description mentioned Nazis, because they are overused when it comes to stories with secret artifacts, but I thought Wallentin used them cleverly in her story I liked the multiple voices as the story goes back and forth through time The story of the ankh and star is revealed at a nice pace and that is what kept me reading this book The history of the ankh and star, from their discovery to present day, I found ve [...]

    7. I don t remember having this much fun reading an adventure story since first devouring the stories of Jules Verne This is what an adventure story should be It is loaded with action, exotic locals, deliciously evil villains, and a not too heroic, slightly neurotic, unsympathetic character who holds the parts of the story together More specifically, he is holding the secret to Strindberg s Star, an otherworldly talisman shaped like an ankh surrounded by a star This object of legend and desire has [...]

    8. I found this book mediocre The story was quite interesting, but the characters surrounding Don Titelman did not feel alive to me the lawyer, in particular, just came off as very arrogant to me.This book, it must be said, is not at all unique in the last years there have been several suspense crime novels that touches the world war II and the nazism in particular Why it is such a popular subject, I don t know but this was far from the first story I ve read that works in Himmlers occult Ahnenerbe [...]

    9. Liking this book is a lot like being my wife you have to be willing to overlook flaws Imho, a book can still be okay even if it has one of the Three Most Commonest Flaws 1 starting with a bang and then losing momentum 2 basing the narrative on unlikeable characters and 3 too damned much implausibility Unfortunately, Wallentin has s one through three A Swedish diver he s a creep finds a relic that s been preserved in copper vitriol for hundreds, maybe thousands, of years He loses the MacGuffin to [...]

    10. I have to say that I was hoping that this book was going to be Nordic Noir than it was To be honest, I almost felt the writing style of this author was almost Americanized compared to other Scandanavian authors I have read There were aspects to it that I felt like I could have been reading a Vince Flynn novel with historical aspects thrown in It was good but coming from its country of origin, I know I expected And the book did start of incredibly strong, but then it kind of tapered off.As I sa [...]

    11. The first half of this book seemed pretty confusing to me It also dragged for about the first 200 pages , but I plowed through and was glad I did The second half is very fast paced and I found it hard to put down I had a hard time identifying with some of the main characters Don, Eva, and Elena and the plot seemed pretty far fetched Would like to see by this author in the future This was a giveaway, but is also one I would probably have bought after reading the synopsis o the back of the book M [...]

    12. I received this book through First Reads.I couldn t even finish this book My girlfriend warned me about it, she was right Like her, I was drawn to this book because the description compares it to Robert Langdon Lisbeth Salander I am a fan of both, but this book is neither It has a jumpy plot, uninteresting characters, mediocre writing.Maybe if you re into crime than I am you d like it But for me, this is a pass.

    13. Tvekar mellan 1 eller tv stj rnor ena sidan str ckl ste jag ju ut den och ville veta hur det skulle g den andra var det h r en f rskr cklig r ra Ih liga och klyschiga karakt rer utan djup och personlighet Storyn k ndes som ett hopkast av olika coola scener och id er som egentligen inte h r ihop men f rfattaren samlat p sig och ville visa upp Men, den skulle nog g ra sig helt ok som actionrulle p netflix

    14. Non ce l ho potuta fare, dopo 300 pagine di nulla sono andata a leggermi direttamente il finale, che per altro fa cagare ed completamente senza senso.Una palla disumana, brutto, inutile, inverosimile e senza capo n coda.A confronto Dan Brown si merita il Nobel e ho detto tutto.Voto 2 10

    15. I won this book as a giveaway through Strindberg s Star was mildly entertaining It had some pretty decent action and mystery, but the main character was too odd to carry the story I kept thinking that someone else was going to step forward as the main character, but unfortunately, it never happened.

    16. A wonderful story with a beautiful plot, but reads like too many slices of light wheat toast, no real nutrition in the bread, you feel still hungry, swollen and fed up with eating too much

    17. Mimal commented it was promising but turned out it wanted to be something it wasn t Final verdict don t bother was mainly swedish media trying to promote it

    18. Un mix di troppe coseDiciamo che questa storia mi sembrata un bel minestrone,non insipido,ma un po pesante da digerire con societ tedesca, spie svedesi, nazisti e Prima guerra mondiale, una ragazza con un potere e dei versi di Baudelaire.Parte in sordina e fino,pi o meno alla met del libro, non riuscivo proprio a capire dove si voleva andare a parare poi prende la piega avventurosa e si infarcisce di notizie storiche reali e romanzate, per finire in modalit fantastica, con un finale che mi aspet [...]

    19. There are some books which make you wonder how an agent, an acquisition s editor, and the rest of the editorial team at a publishing company could have allowed it to get published This is one of them When I picked it up, I thought hey, it s compared to Dan Brown, and while I don t think his books are great literature, they do pass the time So sure, why not Mistake This book tries to capture Dan Brown s style, but manages to make it boring I don t know how many times I fell asleep reading this no [...]

    20. A thriller This novel I d call it a suspence novel because there s very little action and dangerous situations, I can count them on one hand, maybe two And them running across europe with bad guys right at their heels Pfft They escape from Sweden and go to Belgium in a secret train coup , noone chasing them until they get to Ypres, where the bad guys have their lair, so to speak They get captured, but it s not very dramatic either They deside to find the location the ankh and the star point to a [...]

    21. Here comes another book which looks very promising in the beginning but starts accumulating bullsh t soon after, to end up in a very inconclusive and frustrating way Even without taking into account the improbable background science if you manage and you start reading it as an adventure book, it s really hard to digest the rest the nazi conspiracy, secret societies and secret police Even paranormal powers That was a bit too much for me

    22. Det r s kert m jligt att skriva en bra bok som blandar historiska h ndelser, konspirationsteorier och vernaturliga h ndelser Det h r r, dessv rre, inte den boken Om det som utspelar sig i den verkliga v rlden hade varit trov rdigt s kanske boken inte verkat fullt s l jev ckande Men efter episoderna med S po, tyska ambassaden och Green cargo s kan det inte hj lpas att resten av boken l ses enbart f r att se om dom dumheterna kan vertr ffas En riktig kalkon

    23. O pierdere imens de timp Are vreo 50 de pagini n care se trece de la aventur la o prezentare tiin ific n rest ai senza ia c autorul a g sit c teva fapte interesante n istorie i a legat for at cartea de aceste pove ti P cat c unele p r i au poten ial imens Rezumat nu recomand.

    24. Fiction seems to go in waves and one of the recent trends seems to be for Scandinavian authors First there was The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larsson and its trilogy Then, The Snowman by Jo Nesbo was named as one of Richard and Judy s Book Club selections Now, we have Strindberg s Star , a debut novel from Swedish journalist Jan Wallentin who, if he repeats the success of those others, we will be hearing lots about.Just as he is preparing for an appearance on a television show, a stra [...]

    25. This is a Swedish book translated into English It takes place in Europe as the main characters travel around in search of the truth.Sorta.Ok, so our main character, Don, is arrested for the murder of a diver who found a body while diving in a mine The body is perfectly preserved by some trick of the mine, so it s super old, and appears to be the victim of either an accident or a suicide So, there s no crime there The diver, however, took a few things from the cave where he found the body, got ca [...]

    26. Shades of ancient astronautsAn unlikeable loner descends into a flooded, abandoned copper mine in Sweden, hoping to out dive his rivals, the Dyke Divers, and gain a moment of online fame When he does, he comes face to face with a disturbingly well preserved corpse, holding a mysterious artifact an ankh, incised with undecipherable runes and made of a material Unknown to Modern Science This discovery or, accurately, rediscovery leads to the involvement of reluctant hero Don Titelman, religious s [...]
