    Kindle academics20193.co ´ The Confabulist PDF è confabulist kindle, The Confabulist eBookI’m not sure if I’ve recommended this author before or not but the book I want to recommend this month is THE CONFABULIST by Steven Galloway The first of his books I read was ASCENSION and it had one of the most riveting opening chapters I have ever read This new book is about the magician Houdini and the man who killed him It is a twisted puzzler wrapped around the lives of the two man and many others a love story for each and the ways in which we view life when we want to remake it This kept me reading all the way through It does not have an opening chapter of the same power as ASCENSION but the close

    Kindle academics20193.co ´ The Confabulist PDF è confabulist kindle, The Confabulist eBookI know that some other reviews have complained about the fact vs fiction part of this book but I am choosing to just look at this as a story as I have no real knowledge about Houdini's life and after reading The Confabulist it makes me wonder if anybody has the real story on Houdini anywaysI really enjoyed it all of the twists and turns that it takes and the idea that not everything is as it seems that even our own memories have ways of playing tricks on us My only complaint is that I did not feel a bond with Martin Strauss the man who killed Houdini I know this is probably because a good portion of the book focusses on Houdini and not Martin and also because when we are first introduced to Martin in the book he is very confused about everything and is uestioning himself and his memories constantly This made me uestion everything he was remembering for the remainder of the book so I
