Allmänna fakta




I found this novel oddly unengaging despite its intriguing subject matter. Partly it may be because this relatively short novel covers so many years from several different characters' perspective, which makes the narration rather brief and distancing. I never particularly cared for or believed in any of the characters, especially not as 19th century people. The angels were not quite otherworldly or awe-inspiring enough, but rather too much in the vein of the oh-so-popular domesticated vampires etc. - slightly superhuman hunks. Some of the ideas (like the physicality of angels and the mundane details of their existence) were fascinating but the language was just not exquisite enough to make them come alive. Also, I found the wine theme permeating the formal structure cheesy and superfluous, and the same thing can be said for the tacked-on murder mystery. Overall, there were just too many elements in this otherwise decent novel that seemed to be positively begging for best-seller status and film adaptation.… (mer)
