Iain Pears ✓ 1 SUMMARY DOWNLOAD É DUGISITS.CO.ZA ✓ Iain Pears SUMMARY Ó Stone's Fall 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

A uite decent historical thriller with lots of twists and turns plot devices galore red herrings political machinations high finances boys own spying adventures romance betrayal industrial espionage the entente cordiale naval warfare anarchism and the evil that people do It is well written and researched and works backwards from a funeral in the 1950s to London in 1909 Paris in 1890 and finally Venice in 1867 The starting point is the death of a wealthy industrialist and financier John Stone in 1909 The death takes place in unusual circumstances and it is unclear how and why he died the will also leaves a number of mysteries Stone s wife hires a journalist to look into it so the fun begins This is a decent historical thriller The twist at the end is nasty if you don t see it coming it seems from the reviews some did and some did not Most of the characters are well written and strong but because of the way the plot jumps around there is little continuity and the reader has to adapt to three different narratorsIf you want to see something odd look up the wiki entry on this book it takes obssession to a whole new level really strangeIt is uite a hefty tome and Pears seems to be adept at writing gripping historical thrillers If you like that that sort of thing it is worth reading The denouement is shocking even if you guess it It certainly made me think that here is an author who really doesn t like his characters if he can create this However I am not a writer and perhaps am not in a position to make that sort of judgement Despite the fact that the strongest and most interesting character is a women there is also perhaps a touch of misogyny in the whole piece However my random thoughts perhaps indicate that there is uite a lot going on and it held my attention admittedly at the end of the day just prior to sleep with the cat sleeping across my legs
