Water Music yEr This is something I found really funny even though it wasn t supposed to be funnyAnd now the reason I decided to flip through the whole book one time just for all ofou I don t know why there are so many pop culture references but there was one I decided to count how many times it was used Susana Fortes decided to mention Tom Waits six and I repeat SIX times Why Please tell me whyAnd here I will stop I will leave this unforgettable novel behind I don t recommend this book to anyone unless Revived you are looking for something to make fun of and read almost every passage out loud toour friends so ou can ridicule it even Here I thank the amazing writer Susana Fortes for writing this truly heartbreaking book and certainly breaking my heart and my soul as I read it Usually I don t read novels based on history but I have to say this book was totally worth taking a leap of faith I don t know if the parts of history described actually happened in the exact same way but I appreciate an appropriate amount of artistic freedom It may not be Or Anything But bestseller or anything but ou want a book that connects the present with past ou like it Too many unimportant descriptions for my taste I a person of almost pure plot And the plot moves rather slowly uattrocento was in my mind an ok novelThe story is divided between the present ear 2005 and the past before and during the Pazzi conspiracy The novel didn t particularly thrill me and it could ve been written better However I also think that the author can write beautifully which is especially shown in scenes describing Ana s thoughts and feelings The main part of the story is about Ana s research for her dissertation about the life of Pierpaolo Masoni and then crime stuff starts to happen This crime part of Is it possible to rate this book with 0 Stupid dialogues unnecessary long and oppressive descriptions Very interesting historic mystery is good idea for book but this idea become extremely bad book this time I had to force myself to finish it I found it boring predictable weak Absolutely disappointing Too slow and undefined a bit boring Boring As a fan of books with a background in history I have to say that uattrocento was a huge disappointment for me I had to force myself to finish the book Neither Ana Sotomayor nor Giulio Rossi are interesting the story is too slow A very very bad Dan Brown As much as I wanted to like this book I was fairly disappointed with it Throughout this book nothing major happened It was of telling two parallel stories in time no intrigueno conflictnothing I felt like it was the beginning of a trilogy when it s a stand alone novelI kept turning the pages and thinking that something is finally about to happen and this went on until the very end Another thing I didn t like was the lack of depth in the characters Overall the book seemed very superficial to me rather commercial and definitely not written in a way to captivate me As I said I was expecting much than this. Di lei un fascino singolare Le sue appassionate ricerche si appuntano su uno dei uadri più controversi di Masoni in restauro nei laboratori degli Uffizi e su una serie di uaderni in cui il pittore racconta nei dettagli la propria esistenza e gli eventi che hanno segnato la storia di Firenze alla fine del XV secolo tra cui la congiura dei Pazzi D'un tratto però Ana diventa oggetto di minacce e ricatti e si ritrova a temere per la propria vita e per uella delle persone a lei ca. Y heart ached as I read The characters changed personalities on every page They would be moral and humble on one page and then start fucking their university professor on the other with no warning nor character development that would precede it Just an example Also the protagonist Ana Sotomayor would on one page be described and through dialogue seem completely foolish and then suddenly become wiser than her twenty ears older university professorThe plot Predictable Unexplained Something would happen and Fortes would describe is so meticulously with sentences sometimes half a page long as if we were reading a Proustian stream of consciousness novel And THEN THE EVENT WOULD BE the event would be forgotten never againThere is a moment in which a character is raped It is slipped into the storyline for only a very short paragraph and never mentioned again There was no need to put it into the story Not if ou weren t going to spend some time and words on the topic also it is described as if nothing bad has happened simply because the victim was male So he must be content with the occasionAlso the fact that Susana Fortes decided that the best idea ever was to write a cheap version of Dan Brown s DaVinci s Code simply offends me She didn t provide intelligently argumented theories and stole some of the locations and situations from Dan Brown s book Such as the visit to a crypt beneath an old church which held an important secret where the protagonists were then entrapped by the villain and put in dangerThen I must talk about the writing style which was horrifying I was sometimes scared that Fortes completely idiotic description in which she would use extremely long and intelligent words that made no sense in the situation nor one with another would scar me forever My favorite examples must be when she wrote I stood with my both feet Also she then spent half a page describing the love interest eye color which we all know bring nothing to the narrative nor to the characterization I simply must share the description with A Heart of Stone you His eyes now seemed to have the shade of pitcher filled with wine when a ray of lighting passes through it with ribbons splattered with amber malachite and lapis lazuli the things that were present in his irises in interchangeable variety changing also with his mood and the way lighting hit his eye Sometimes they shined with a golden pigment that could sometimes be found on Italian renaissance paintings What What does that mean She here took almost every color that exists but then as the icing on a very bad cake she made things even worse and said in the last chapter that the protagonist held his face and looked into his eyes intensely even though she didn t even know the color of them What is the point I thought of stopping now but why I am at the point of no return The henchmen of the bad guys were described one as Gomez Addams and the other as Danny de Vito Danny de Vito s name was actually written in the description of the charact. Ndendolo potente come non mai Però Lorenzo non sa che i fili di uella congiura sono stati tirati da personaggi molto più influenti della famiglia Pazzi E ignora di essere lui stesso un burattino nelle mani della Storia Firenze oggi Sono in pochi a conoscere Pierpaolo Masoni pittore rinascimentale dallo stile e dall'animo tormentati E Ana Sotomayor dottoranda in Storia dell'arte è arrivata a Firenze proprio per capire ualcosa di più su uesto oscuro personaggio che esercita su. Where do I even startWith a disclaimer I guess Since this book hasn tet been translated in English all the uotations are my translations of the book So they might not be the best but I tried my best to give ou the ambiance and the point the author tried to send uattrocento by Susana Fortes is a partly historical partly fiction novel in which we follow an art graduate Ana Sotomayor who is writing her dissertation on the topic of a renaissance painter Pierpaolo Masoni and the Pazzi conspiracy in which they tried to assassinate the Medici family Also we follow through the second storyline the painter Paolo Masoni and his apprentice Luca As They Get Intertwined In they get intertwined in conspiracySo far it wasn t translated in English and maybe it is for the best because this is one of the worst novels my critical eyes have encountered I am deeply disappointed since have been tracking down this novel for a few ears and have become uite invested in finding it Maybe it was the universe telling me not to read it However recently I finally acuired it Also I decided to give annotating a try and this is the book I picked to be my victim I have never made a better decision in my reading history And there I was pen in hand wide eyed and opening the book I was ready to put on my favorites shelf What a journey On the second page I put down the first uestion mark in the marginWhat followed was pages and pages of historically inaccurate descriptions of Florence in the early renaissance Fortes described the town filled with buildings built Language and Linguistics years even centuries later and sometimes even invented buildings that simply could not have existed in Florence Such as churches which were described very closely as something out of medieval precisely gothic France This is simply not possible This all would not such a big deal if the author herself didn t claim to be a historian Also the dynamic of people living and the political scene in the historical part of the novel was not even remotely close to what really went on In a way it was described as through the eyes of a child Further to giveou examples of the pure idiocy of this novel she claimed that around the ear 1460 people regularly used flintlocks in wars while they weren t even close to being invented Also she then claims that the Swiss they weren t even close to being invented Also she then claims that the Swiss participated in the Pazzi conspiracy which took place in 1478 when the Swiss Guard wasn t established until 1506All of this makes me so angry I expected so much out of a historical novel written by a historian One of the main reasons it makes me angry is the fact that many people will read this book and believe the historical facts Susana Fortes presents without thinking about it twice My major in university is art history And I am specializing in the renaissance and baroue period I hate that someone who is am specializing in the renaissance and baroue period I hate that someone who is in this subject will be surrounded by pure bullshitLet s now distance ourselves from this problem and step into another The characters Such bad character building that Firenze aprile 1478 Sono giorni terribili uelli che seguono il fallimento della congiura ordita dalla famiglia Pazzi contro i Medici Firenze è assetata di sangue decisa a punire con la tortura o con la morte chiunue abbia partecipato alla cospirazione Al sicuro nel suo palazzo Lorenzo il Magnifico viene a sapere dei cadaveri gettati in Arno delle decapitazioni dei linciaggi È la città intera che vendica l'assassinio di suo fratello Giuliano e che si consegna nelle sue mani re.
