Rebecca Stott È 2 Summary

Lydia Brooke a young writer and friend of Elizabeth's and asks her to complete the last chapter of the book The research in this book is great as well as the writing in the book about Isaac Newton within this story In fact the Newton book should have been this story That would have made a great book with all these elements alchemists secret formulas brilliant young Newton beginning to figure out among other things calculus and differential euations lovely stuff patronage factions nepotism a series of uestionable deaths Why did the author waste her time writing a pointless story with annoying characters in the present when she could have speculated away in all sorts of fantastic and fantastical ways about the goings in in Cambridge amongst alchemists in the 1660s

    After reading this book I am sorry to say that I was severely disappointed The synopsis for it sounded great and I normally love books that involve a historical mystery to solve but there really wasn't much about this book that I liked A historian and writer of screenplays Lydia Brooke is hired by her former married lover Cameron Brown to ghostwrite a book after the author his mother Elizabeth Volgelsang is m

    It's not often that I think a NYT book reviewer gets it totally wrong but that's the case with Rebecca Stott's novel Ghostwalk I should have been tipped off by the trite final sentence of the review Stott's home terrain however is the river

    THis is the best book that I have ever read that I could only rate two stars I loved Neal Stephenson's Baroue Cycle and I couldn't wait to pick up another book that might take a deeper look into Isaac Newton's alchemical experiments The research that was done before this book was written is incredible and the passages in which Elizabeth Vogelsang's The Alchemist the fictitious biography of Newton at the center

    I enjoyed the start of this book and was intrigued by the idea of a mix between a ghost story and detective story with 17th century events woven in with present day ones I was also attracted by the fact that it's set in Cambridge a city I knowHowever I soon got fed up and gave up after about 80 pages I didn't believe in any of the characters and found the plot too convoluted so decided not to waste my time

    I did not finish this book and my only regret is that I spent way too much time trying to like it I found nothing to like It claims to be 'a haunting literary thriller' and a 'historical mystery involving Isaac Newton's alchemy' Why I thought anything involving Isaac Newton and his alchemy would be interesting is beyond me now Turn
