characters Stone's Fall characters ✓ eBook or Kindle ePUB ↠ Iain Pears Iain Pears ↠ 3 free download National finance Europe’s first great age of espionage and the start of the twentieth century’s arms raceLike Fingerpost Stone’s Fall is an intricately plotted and richly satisfying puzzle–an erudite work of history and fiction that feels utterly true and oddly timely–and marks the triumphant return of one of the world’s great storyteller. The central uestion is simple How and why did the wealthy and powerful industrialist John Stone come to fall to his death from the window of his London home The answer is anything butFirst there is a prologue set in Paris in 1953 Two men meet after a funeral It is short and simple but it sets the tone beautifully and provides a firm basis that will hold together what is to comeAnd then the story travels back in time to London in 1909 to Paris in 1890 and finally to Venice in 1967 In 1909 John Stone is dead in 1890 he features in another man s story and in 1867 he tells his own story Three engaging and distinctive narratorsStories told backwards rarely work for me but this one did The plotting is so well executed with all of the twists and turns rooted in the history of the characters What wonderful characters Wonderfully observed and utterly intriguing Settings too vividly evoked This is definitely one of those books where you can hear the voices and see the scenes in your headThere is much going on financial industrial and political intrigue mysteries and investigations and a striking love story It all works together beautifullyAnd all of this in lovely cool clear proseFor most of its pages Stone s Fall is a story for the intellect but at key points the emotions were perfectly pitched and they hit hardThe story was long and involved but it held on to me right up to a startling conclusion that shifted my perceptions and made me rethink many elements of what had come beforeAm impressive achievement

Solid four star read Really and trulyI hesitate to use the word Dickensian because I was never a Dickens fan but that s the word that comes to mind for me and I do mean it in a positive way A long twisty narrative full of larger than life characters who are intertwined in all sorts of unexpected ways I can only compare it to Dickens But where Dickens wrote like he was paid by the word this book though arguably too long never felt tedious Or usually didn t anyway I wasn t always engaged by the financial and business aspects of the storyline though I did appreciate their appeal for someone fascinated by that stuff than this reader but that didn t stop me from eagerly devouring all 600 odd pages I found myself fascinated by the characters and plot twists despite my needing to suspend disbelief at times And I loved the way the story was told backwards heightening the suspense and drama of the gradual revelations Aaahh It was a long haul admittedly but I m actually a bit sorry it s over The next book has a tough act to follow

characters Stone's Fall characters ✓ eBook or Kindle ePUB ↠ Iain Pears Iain Pears ↠ 3 free download In his most dazzling novel since the groundbreaking New York Times bestseller An Instance of the Fingerpost Iain Pears tells the story of John Stone financier and arms dealer a man so wealthy that in the years before World War One he was able to manipulate markets industries and indeed entire countries and continentsA panoramic novel with a riveting. This is a very long novel I d guess nearly 300000 words and as the official blurb says it is ingenious and intricately plotted But I think it could have been just as ingenious and intricate at about half the length I was hoping it would be as good as An Instance of the Fingerpost but I was disappointed Like that one it is divided into sections each with a different narrator but in this case the narrators all sound pretty much alike and none of them is particularly engaging In fact there are no characters with which I could either sympathize or identify Everything seems cold and calculated Central to the book is a mysterious and alluring woman but anyone who has read My Cousin Rachel will have seen mysterious and alluring done much convincingly Writing the novel backwards with each section narrating events that occurred before what we have already seen must have been excruciatingly difficult and it s amazing that Pears pulls it off so successfully At times the strain shows though as in a very late scene which is contrived to be tense major characters trapped in a basement with a madman tons of explosive and the madman about to light the fuse but we already know that three of the four characters will still be alive years from now In spite of it s overall organization the novel meanders and the thread of suspense is often lost in massive amounts of detail An excellent puzzle but once the puzzle is solved in the final pages you can set the book aside and forget it There are no memorable experiences here
