    The Savage Garden PDF/EPUB Ø The Savage Kindle - savage mobile, garden kindle, The Savage epub, The Savage Garden ePUBA uick easy and absorbing read with a mildly compelling plot and an interesting cast of characters I wasn't too impressed with the uality of the writing though; one of the reviews uoted on the jacket makes the rather outlandish claim that it's of Booker nominee standard but there's noticeable repetition of several phrases the sex scenes are frankly terrible and the dialogue is littered with slang that I don't think would have even existed in 1950s Britain let alone been understood by a remote community of Italians speaking conveniently perfect English as a second language Still

    The Savage Garden PDF/EPUB Ø The Savage Kindle - savage mobile, garden kindle, The Savage epub, The Savage Garden ePUBWhile reading this book I was torn between digging up my old art history books brushing up on my classics and running off to a villa in Italy hopefully one with an amazing sculpture garden The plot unfolded beautifully and with bits and pieces of the classics and art intertwined with descriptions of this amazing garden An art history lesson tucked into a mystery Now if I could just find that villa in Italy

    The Savage Garden PDF/EPUB Ø The Savage Kindle - savage mobile, garden kindle, The Savage epub, The Savage Garden ePUBNote to self you didn't like this book It is tedious for several reasons Firstly I'm not in to Greek or Roman mythology and sadly this is central to the story Secondly it's set in 1958 but you keep forgetting because this isn't tied in to the tale enough Thirdly what are the three sex scenes about They seem to be written in a different voice by a different author Fourthly the writer is really mean about giving the reader clues to help you piece together the crime or maybe I missed this because I was almost in a Greco Roman mythology coma at this point Fifthly You could do with reading Dante's 'Inferno' and Machiavelli's 'Prince' to enjoy all the references I found this a bit pompous yes Mark you went to Cambridge and these are probably the books you read there YAWN Sixthly the story keeps taking unexpected turns which because there are few clues
