REVIEW ï PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook Ó Julia NavarroErwise it was an exciting historical novel Navarro had two stories on going one in the current timeframe the other in ancient times I am not sure if some of the problems with the story had to do with the translation from Spanish to English I can not recommend this book But with a good rewrite to tighten up the story it might make a good "ThrillerI Read This As A Paperback It Has 546 Pages "read this as a paperback It has 546 pages *in 2007 by Dell Publishing One of the worst books I *2007 by Dell Publishing One of the worst books I ever read in my life I seriously wanted to throw this book to the bin Not only it is really bad written but the characters are flat and unlikeable and extremely annoying and the storyline is ust blah Seems like a bad remake of The Da Vinci Code "COULDN T CARE LESS ABOUT THIS STUPID BOOK HOW " t care less about this stupid book How I ever read this I still don t know Yet another Spanish romp is Julia Navarro s The Brotherhood of the Holy Shroud Just when you thought you were safe from the Knights Templar here they return as heroic in fiction as the This book is fantastic While the beginning starts off a bit slow once you get into the story a bit the pace picks up and the story really gets moving This book is based in two different time lines One is the modern time with the police investigating a fire in the city of Turin The other is the time following the crucifixion of Jesus The Shroud of Turin is the piece that ties the two time lines together as the fire took place in the church where the Shroud is normally kept and displayed The police believe there is to the fire than simple arson and they are intent on finding out what the connection is to the Shroud The ancient time line tells the story of where the Shroud came from and how it comes to be tied into the modern city of Turin Honestly I could not put this book down after a while I already have the next book by Julia Navarro and am looking forward to starting it very soon I thought about giving this book a two out of fairness but after forcing myself to finish it I simply can not bring myself to do that I don t know if this book was simply a victim of it being translated into English or if it simply was poorly written to begin with There were too many characters too many plots and nothing was fleshed out The story Street Without a Name: Childhood and Other Misadventures in Bulgaria just sludged on for 371 pages and finally collapsed at the end without any real ending This felt like assigned reading duringunior high The only reason I forced myself to finish it is because I paid 8 for it Did you have to waste so many pages Waste of time and energy The book is supposed to be a thriller and I didn t feel any thrill at all It was dulldraggingand tested my patience in many places You can t state few names like shroud of Turin an.
