Over the years, I've received student papers so awful, I'm tempted to just write, "Nice font choice" and move on. For Trussoni's sad book, my comment is "Nice cover." Fetching, isn't it? However, what a surprise. Not one of my GR friends has any mention of this book - not a review, not a to-be-read, a Leggi tutto
This one kept losing stars as it went. The broad concept was really interesting, excerpting one of those weird bits of the bible and making it the basis for an otherworldly, fantastical story. But the characters are flat and the writing is dull -- most of the first half of the book is scenes of peop Leggi tutto
Honestly, if I could give it 3.5 stars, I would. Since I can't, I'm rounding up, as a gesture towards giving the author the benefit of the doubt, expecting that the next book will be better. Angelology is a mixed bag. Personally, I find angel lore, and other mythologies, fascinating, and I thoroughly Leggi tutto
3.5/ Realmente me ha gustado, es una historia diferente a las muchas que puedes encontrar sobre ángeles, el único pero es que, para mí gusto, la autora describe demasiado todo y eso hace que la novela pierda intensidad.
Well...the cover is FABULOUS. Ok guys, I will admit it: I don't like nuns. I mean, not on a PERSONAL level, but their world view is not compelling in a general fictional sense, and they've always bugged me since one of my first acting classes when I had to play Agnes of God in a scene, and I remember Leggi tutto
I am so glad I found this on audiobook at the library. It turned out to be a very good medium for this story. I have to say that for a slow starter, I really got drawn into this book, and when it ended, I had separation anxiety! Two things kept me from giving this a five star rating: 1. The slow, mean Leggi tutto
When you read as much as I do, it is rare to come across a totally unique story. Angelology is that rare gem. This book has almost every element a great book should offer: multi-faceted, fascinating characters, an exciting, complex, layered plot, and really excellent writing. The story is a tapestry Leggi tutto
Mi libro favorito de todos los tiempos .
Ωραία η θεματολογία του βιβλίου, άγγελοι, νεφιλείμ, ελοχείμ, πόλεμος με τους ανθρώπους, το βιβλίο του Ενώχ, χαριτωμένη αγνή πρωταγωνίστρια και όλα αυτά τα καλά. Η πλοκή ακολουθεί μια ωραία σειρά, με την αγωνία του, την δράση του, μια χαρά. Όμως… τι λογοδιάρροια είναι αυτή; Τι ακατάπαυστη φλυαρία; Μα Leggi tutto
Dare I say it? Yes, I dare say - Angelology by Danielle Trussoni is the heir to Elizabeth Kostova's The Historian. Angelology is a breathtaking story of ambitious scope: good vs. evil, man vs. fallen angels, Nazis, Greek mythology, the Bible, Milton (Angelology owes much to Paradise Lost). And the h Leggi tutto
