    eBook Palace Council PDF/EPUB ✓ ✓ stroyki.pro palace pdf, council pdf, Palace Council PDF/EPUBI want to weep with disgust that a book can be so banal and so long Reading it was mentally exhausting and emotionally distressing because it was so dull and yet so complicated It's a murder mystery a political thriller a missing persons uest ranging from 1952 to 1975 among Harlem's black upper class It has Dan Brown like elements of conspiracy; riddles are solved with the help of passages from Paradise Lost and Lady Chatterley's Lover The most annoying thing is Carter's insistence on incorporating every possible historical event into his narrative Chappauiddick it's here The characters are on Martha's Vineyard when it goes down Watergate Kent Stat

    eBook Palace Council PDF/EPUB ✓ ✓ stroyki.pro palace pdf, council pdf, Palace Council PDF/EPUBThis is a very good book in many ways a great oneFor me it was almost too intricate too finely plotted for this feeble brain to keep up with I've spent much of the last week finishing Palace Council as I nurse a bad back and perhaps my brain is wilted a bit as wellPalace Council is a long book over 500 pages The author's note at the end is also worth reading because Carter explains little changes he made to history in order to fit in with Eddie Wesley's journeyThe real heroes of this novel are the African American women who not only possess the brains but the sheer guts to survive and thrive in a culture that seeks t

    eBook Palace Council PDF/EPUB ✓ ✓ stroyki.pro palace pdf, council pdf, Palace Council PDF/EPUBBefore I rip on this book I want to state clearly that I liked it pretty well and I like Stephen Carter's voice This book could use a very efficient editor The plot wanders and there are too many twists It makes me think of being a kid sitting in church during the sermon and the preacher would use his wrapping it up cadence and then plunge right back in and keep going Palace Council had too many non climaxes Also too many characters Ultimately it was confusing which can easily slip into boring I adore Carter's subjects This book is set in the black political class in Harlem and Washington during the Kennedy Johnson and Nixon administrations A fascinating society in a fascinating time
