    PDF/EPUB Skugga PDF ↠ ☆ bunatime.co ☆ skugga kindle, Skugga EpubThe single most positive aspect of this novel is the beautifully written prose The words seem to speak directly to the reader in a heart touching and sometimes heart wrenching wayI’ll admit this is one of those novels where the cover art drew me in Who can resist an adorable little boy?Then I read the blurb at the back which told me that this little boy was abandoned and was somehow connected to the death thirty five years later of a 92 year old woman who had books in her freezer upon her death That was enough to capture the attention of any bibliophile Too old to be the boy’s mother how could this woman be connected to him?The novel was a myster

    PDF/EPUB Skugga PDF ↠ ☆ bunatime.co ☆ skugga kindle, Skugga EpubWithout wanting to appear negative I didn’t like this book much at allThe story starts with the abandoned young boy and uickly moves to the death of Gerda Persson The books of Nobel Prize winner Axel Ragnerfeldt are found in the freezer and so we beginStraight away the characters are really difficult to like we have a recovering alcoholic prone to wandering off into rambling social commentary which has no relevance to the story and seems to be a way for the author to vent her views a privileged but completely ungrateful misogynist and his worn down wife I couldn’t find sympathy for any of them Gerda Persson sums it up perfectly “I’m content and you’re not You’re always chasing after what you imagine you

    PDF/EPUB Skugga PDF ↠ ☆ bunatime.co ☆ skugga kindle, Skugga EpubDid you ever wonder why you had a particular book in hand? When I finally got down to reading “Shadow” I uestioned why and how long it had been on my tattered wish list and why I had past it over for so long Now I ask myself why I waited so long to read it The novel is a psychological crime thriller about dark secrets the price of fame and how the search for public approval can drive some to make unsound decisions that have lasting or tragic repercussions It also touches the impact our childhood has on the rest of our lifeOne often describes a book as hot and hard to put aside this is surely a true description of this one The story is one with depth many layers and full of secrets and rivalries between the characters As this dynamic book progresses we are plunged deep into

    PDF/EPUB Skugga PDF ↠ ☆ bunatime.co ☆ skugga kindle, Skugga EpubThis was an excellent story It lived up to my expectations as I've read other Karin Alvtegen stories and enjoyed them immensely She develops the story very nicely introducing characters in each chapter and telling the story through their eyes Each person is well crafted has their own individual personalities their own faults The story starts with the death of Gerda Persson a lady who had previously been the house maid for a famour literary family The preparations for her funeral will change many lives and bring people together who did not know each other existed There are many surprises and an excellent ending even if not what I expected Karin Alvtegen is an excellent mystery writer very uniue style Highly recommended

    PDF/EPUB Skugga PDF ↠ ☆ bunatime.co ☆ skugga kindle, Skugga EpubI've thoroughly enjoyed the three previous Alvtegen novels I've read to the extent that I have her at the top of my own personal list of Scandi crime writers perhaps because in her case the term crime writer is a bit of a

    PDF/EPUB Skugga PDF ↠ ☆ bunatime.co ☆ skugga kindle, Skugga EpubI was reading this when I got out a book from the library due in a week I finished the other book and went back to Shadow It took me a while to get the books together in my mind but this book was special Not because there are characters in it that make sense but it was realistic with all the killings

    PDF/EPUB Skugga PDF ↠ ☆ bunatime.co ☆ skugga kindle, Skugga EpubThis novel is set in Stockholm and I thought it was beautifully writtentranslated I came to it thinking it would be a typical Scandinavian crime novel as it begins with a death but there is no police involvement except at the very start It is of a slow paced mystery but that slow pace gave time for the main characters to develop and conseuently have some depth Don't let the slow pace comment put you off It certainly gripped my imagination and kept me interested all the way through to the end It begins with two seemingly unconnected events The death

    PDF/EPUB Skugga PDF ↠ ☆ bunatime.co ☆ skugga kindle, Skugga EpubSuch a dark novelHow does the death of an old woman connect to a child abandoned in an amusement park decades ago? And how will their connection ruin an elderly Nobel prize winning author's family and reputation?I love this author's ability to take the reader inside each character's head Seeing the outer actions versus the inner thoughts is so compelling Seeing how each person's perspective of events collides with other realities is illuminating in itself Makes one wonder what filters we all have up But in the novel the mixture of all these disparate realities is what makes the grim thriller
