    PDF John Harding ð Florence and Giles PDF/EPUB » Florence and PDF/EPUB ð florence epub, giles epub, Florence and pdf, Florence and Giles PDFThis brief horror homage is a bit like one of those unusual appetizers they bring out at froo froo restaurants What are they called? Amuse bouches It is perhaps not anything that you would like to eat as an entire meal and maybe not even something that before that moment you had contemplating even putting in your mouth but now that the moment is on you it's sort of interesting looking and hey it can only last so long right? And sometimes it turns out to be an aerosolized shellfish on a weird cracker but other times it is a fun little taste vacationWhich is all to say that I enjoyed Florence Giles hugely and I think you should try it even if you don't like it because it really is only a little mouthful and it won't take long to go down I

    PDF John Harding ð Florence and Giles PDF/EPUB » Florence and PDF/EPUB ð florence epub, giles epub, Florence and pdf, Florence and Giles PDFFlorence and Giles?Now doesn’t that sound like Flora and Miles?Is it a coincidence or are the two pairs of names connected?Well no it isn’t a coincidence And yes the names are connected But not as you may thinkIf one is a true story then the other would be a variation on that story far from the truth as it has been told misheard distorted embellished so many timesOr I like to think neither is a whole truth Both are distortions of another story that has never been toldJohn Harding’s version of the story unlike Henry James

    PDF John Harding ð Florence and Giles PDF/EPUB » Florence and PDF/EPUB ð florence epub, giles epub, Florence and pdf, Florence and Giles PDFWhy won't I review this? This is one of the best Gothic books I have ever read 2014 This book made me feel all sorts of things I mean I don't get it I'd gladly review desultory and horrendously written books like The Other Boleyn Girl though that review was so much fun to write but not this book which I genuinely loved and is arguably one of my favorite novels Look at its cover The ending and the very last words will have you ashiver And already have its seuel ready to go just waiting for a dark and starry night to read it

    PDF John Harding ð Florence and Giles PDF/EPUB » Florence and PDF/EPUB ð florence epub, giles epub, Florence and pdf, Florence and Giles PDFWhat a complete load of rubbish I had such high expectations of this book The front cover lured me in with that creepy face at the window From the blurb I was expecting a haunting Victorian style ghost story perfect for reading on cold evenings with a hot chocolate Sadly what I got was utter drivel I appreciate the writing style was deliberately different with the made up words and switcheroo of traditional sentences It did get right on my tits but I could have let it go were the storyline not so BORING The book didn't get going until at least Part Two some 10 chapters75 pages in Even then it was stupidThis was not in the least bit scary to any r

    PDF John Harding ð Florence and Giles PDF/EPUB » Florence and PDF/EPUB ð florence epub, giles epub, Florence and pdf, Florence and Giles PDFThis was my hallowe'en read for the year and I did get rather excited at the prospect of a 'Poe' meets 'The Turn of the Screw' but it really wasn't to be While the concept is firmly rooted in the Gothic tradition thanks to it being almost a re write of the illustrious aforementioned title by Henry James it really does lack in the 'scare factor' that it so promises on the back cover This is the story of Florence and Giles two orphaned children living with their estranged uncle in a vast sprawling estate known as Blithe House However the name of the house is grossly misleading as nothing about the place is 'blithe' It is a cold forbidding mansion with ancient turrets and a dark history Florence is our precocious little narrator and guides us through the ghostly happenings of the place and the strange people who live thereBesides her uiet rather innocent brother who needs protecting most of the time there is her uncle a pedantic odd sort of man
