    Kindle The Waterworks ePUB ò í ms style.pro waterworks pdf, The Waterworks KindleI managed to finish this book but just barely Will I read another by this author I don't think so Did I enjoy this book? No I did not enjoy this book Why?The freaking ellipsis ellipses? The author's overuse of after after changed what could have been a fairly mediocre attempt at writing a 19th century mystery into something resembling sheer hell for this reader These blasted dots made it impossible to tell or care if the character's voices were different made it impossible to become involved and most importantly of all made it impossible for me to EVER so much as consider reading anything else by this pompous overbearing windbagBesides the ellipsis problem there were other aspects of this book that rankled 1 The plot what little there was of it Sure most 19th century mysteries aren't considered all that mysterious nowadays but they were in their time In their time they were fresh new and exciting and many such as those by Anna Katharine Green can s

    Kindle The Waterworks ePUB ò í ms style.pro waterworks pdf, The Waterworks KindleEvocative post Civil War New York with lotsa juicy images is the setting for this slightly hallucinogenic tale of familial treachery and greed The story is told by an aged journalist who is only peripherally related to the main characters The hypocrisy of religion the limited morality of “science” and the constant reminder that everything has a price especially in “The Ring’s” NYCLife under Boss Tweed; dramatic poverty and hoards of neglected children “street rats” scurrying around the powerful rising extraordinarily wealthy class not seen in the new world before or since till now is the palpable setting“A c

    Kindle The Waterworks ePUB ò í ms style.pro waterworks pdf, The Waterworks KindleOnce upon a time I thought Doctorow was a real contender a heavyweight storyteller if not of canonical stature then at least on par with other true professionals like Fowles or Dexter Hell I guess he is actually but it was Ragtime and Billy Bathgate that put that thought in mind and Waterworks while reinforcing the fact that Doctorow's a craftsman does little to advance his reputation in my opinion It's a good if dull story and a nice little exercise in the ellipsis as pace setter but in the end it's just dull boring blah Read Ragtime though and Billy Bathgate if you like Ragtime

    Kindle The Waterworks ePUB ò í ms style.pro waterworks pdf, The Waterworks KindleSlow moving and boring It didn't uite fit the crime genre nor the mystery genre It certainly was not a thriller It was of a philosophical meandering asking uestions about the advance of medicine and science versus religion the advance of the machine age versus the pastoral the acceptance and resignation of age versus the fire and idealism of youth It has a few bright moments as a story and I would hold hope for a some pages that the writer would continue to be bright and clear but then he goes back to written mumbling about philosophical ideas and one very much feels the stifling soporific underwater world that plays a large part in this story
