In this the eighth installment of the Erast Fandorin series the author changes his usual narrative style to tell this story via several different points of view A young girl s journal newspapers the reports of an undercover agent and even poetry all come together to weave a somewhat bizarre tale of a suicide club in Moscow While suicide clubs are definitely not a new phenomenon in the rest of Europe in Moscow they have been previously unheard of until now at the dawn of the new century She Lover of Death tells the story of a young woman from the provinces and how she came to be mixed up in such a group It explores the burgeoning society of decadents arising around this time period often delving into the influences of Russian poets such as Lermontov or Pushkin on sensitive psyches especially those wondering about Russia s fate in this new century Of course there s a mystery element to it as well one involving our illustrious hero and his ever faithful servant Masa A young girl arrives in Moscow from Irkutsk drawn there by a young man named Petya she had met previously while he had visited relatives in the provinces Marya Marinova nicknamed Masha had been truly captivated by this young man she called Harleuin who cast a spell on her with the halo of fiery red curls scattering across his shoulder his loose fitting blouse and intoxicating poems Masha who saw life as an empty stupid joke was also captivated by Harleuin s comment about the only true beauty being in dying Upon her arrival in Moscow she changes everything about herself including her name rechristening herself simply as Columbine When she catches up with Petya he introduces her to a secret society of poets brought together not only by their art but with their fascination with death The group is called The Lovers of Death it is within the confines of this group that Death speaks through previous members now dead by their own hands via a medium to pick its next victim The chosen ones must wait for three signs of confirmation before making their way to their rendezvous with Death The head of this group is an strange character named Prospero aka The Doge and the club attracts the attention of a reporter who manages to infiltrate the group unbeknownst to the others It also attracts the attention of a strange man with dark hair which is graying at the temples a person the group knows only as Prince Genji But you guessed it Prince Genji is none other than Erast Fandorin who believes that there is something sinister lurking under the surface The various points of view work well in this novel making the reader work a little bit harder to suss out what s really going on here Since Akunin s regular readers are already uite familiar with Erast Petrovich by this time the author mixes things up so that the reins of the story are given over to others actually involved in this odd tale choosing to focus instead on accounts written by those smack in the middle of all of the action What you end up with instead of of a textured account of events that flesh out the rest of the story rather than simply a linear mystery going from point a to point z While Columbine s character is representative of one of these new decadents appearing in Moscow society around this time sometimes it s a bit over the top while at other times you can t help but feel sorry for this poor naive and very impressionable girl fresh from the provinces There is a bit of a supernatural feel to this book at times making for a bit of fun and chills to the spine here and there but luckily this is limited and doesn t consume the entire plotline She Lover of Death is another trademark installment in the series it s a great deal of fun to read and it offers a realistic sense of place and time owing to the author s research and knowledge of the period And as usual it exceeds the boundaries of the regular conventional mystery novel with its characters actions especially those of the erstwhile Fandorin As I ve noted before I don t really read these novels for their mystery component they re much adventurous than a standard mystery story And I can t help it I ve been a huge Fandorin fan since the publication in English of Akunin s first novelI can definitely recommend She Lover of Death both to followers of Akunin s Fandorin series and to readers of historical crime fiction I m a stickler for following a series in publication order and you could probably read this one without having read any of the earlier books On the other hand you wouldn t have all of the necessary nuances of Fandorin s character that make this series so much fun under your beltOverall a fun read one I had a great time with

Boris Akunin ¿ 0 DOWNLOAD DOWNLOAD æ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook ¿ Boris Akunin FREE DOWNLOAD Любовница смерти There's been rising concern in Moscow over a wave of suicides among the city's young bohemians An intrepid newspaper reporter Zhemailo begins to uncover the truth behind the phenomenon that the victims are linked by a secret society the Lovers of Death But Zhemailo is not the only investiga. Russian poets found a suicide cult mayhem ensues various agents with different agendas try to end the ungodly epidemic this is a rough summary of the plot of Akunin s mystery This author is not only a very successful translator and writer of detective fiction he is also an outspoken critic of Putin and while She Lover of Death does not directly address the current political situation the central theme is psychological manipulation in this case the ability to convince people that death is an actual person who summons his disciples to a beautiful demise Yes the victims in this crime story do apparently kill themselves they buy into a deception that is crafted in a way that appeals to their personal urges and longings go figure Btw Akunin means bad person in Japanese and B Akunin refers to the Russian anarchist Michail Bakunin But back to the story The plot largely revolves around a young woman from the Siberian province who comes to Moscow trying to re invent herself as the mysterious Columbine Out of curiosity she joins the suicide cult the Lovers of Death and becomes the prime example showing the reader how a person comes to buy into such an outrageous scam The story is partly written from her perspective and in other parts composed of newspaper articles about the suicides and the club of reports by an anonymous informant to the police and of a third person narrative The changing form gives the novel a nice dynamic altough the story does have some lenghts Bit by bit the author reveals the intentions of the club s doge and several members uestioning who the club members really are and what drives their behavior In the end and in classic style we get a big reveal I really liked that this murder mystery contemplates psychological violence and not by scaring or pressuring the victims but by giving them something that is framed to appear like love beauty and adventure but in truth only follows a manipulative agenda that is all about power In the middle section the text offers some unnecessary detours that result in lenghts the poems written by the cult members read like parodies of Andreas Gryphius texts and the female figures are not exactly painted in a progressive light but this is a smart mystery that is fun to read
