It takes quite a while for this story to take-off. When it does the descriptions of the various smells becomes lyrical.
Not only does Alice have a strange journey but so does the read, although not in the way the author intended.
Insipid story with weak, unbelievable plot. It may just be me but I get really irritated reading the same word or phrase in a book over and over again. I think it's lazy writing. The word "Bosphorus" is mentioned at least a hundred times. This and "Ottoman Empire" seem to be the only way the author can think of to describe Turkey.
I understand that the author is French but the English translation I read is full of Americanisms. One of the main characters loves to paint "Intersections".. Really? and (SPOILER) is introduced as a grouchy Mr Heckels (Friends fans will know) type character, so it's really a stretch that he becomes the man she has been looking for all her life!
Why so much emphasis was placed on the skylight of her apartment (they were known as flats in England at the time of the story) is beyond me. The ending was rushed, so any hint of a twist which might have made the rest of the book tolerable, was removed.
I was relieved to get to the end. Unsure how this type of book gets so many stars on Amazon or Goodreads.
I found the style of writing quite lyrical at times. The story started off in London and you could feel the dampness and typical way of life for the group of youngsters there. The fortune teller part was intriguing. I am not a huge believer but have had an interesting reading years ago and many of the predictions have slotted into place since so I am open to the idea of some people seeing things beyond the way normal people do.
I liked the detective element of the story where Alice discovers who she is but the letters between Alice and Daldry I found a less interesting way of telling the story.
The end became predictable during the letter writing section even though at the time Alice was still finding her history, somehow I preferred the style of writing in the initial part of the book.
Having said all that did enjoy the story and would happily read more from this author.
