Азазель Read ´ 109 N of irresistible charm to the Alexander Gardens precinct for informationFandorin is not satisfied with the conclusion that this is an open and shut case nor with the preliminary detective work the precinct has done and for good reason The bizarre and tragic suicide is soon connected to a clear case of murder witnessed firsthand by Fandorin There are many unresolved uestions Why. Boris Akunin is actually a pen name of Grigory Chkhartishvili bless you according to the About the Author section in the back Akunin is Japanese for villain a rather fitting pen surname for someone who is apparently legendary in Russia for his crime novels The Winter ueen is one of three mysteries featuring the detective Erast Fandorin I understand all three of them were made into big Russian blockbuster movies I think I might like the better movie I m just sayin This particular story is being remade into an English film coming out next year Thank god for Wikipedia for those of us who live under rocksAkunin has the opportunity to create a really awesome detective a Russian James Bond if you will yet I found Fandorin to be rather a wiener He s a 20 year old detective still wet around the ears who uncovers a plot for world domination In Moscow 1876 The concept seems pretty awesome but my literary planets were clearly not aligned and I found myself mentally snoozing most of the way through this Which is sort of a hard feat if it s meant to be a conspiracy novel I expect these sorts of books to grab me from the beginning shake me like a dog toy and not let go until the end when my proverbial neck is brokenI might check out the other two Fandorin novels I want to like this guy because he s Russian but I m wondering if maybe I have a problem with contemporary Russian authors ugh Victor Pelevin and may just need to stick to the classic Russian writers who had to write to save their livesI wouldn t tell others to not read this book I think a lot of people probably like it Hell all of Russia can not be wrong They love this guy there so I figure the fault is on my own side So knock yourself out and I promise to someday no rush check out another book by him In the meantime someone needs to recommend a contemporary Russian author who isn t crap
