( Read Epub ) ⚛ Midnight Angels Ø A Novel In the secret passageways of one of the world s most majestic cities, and American woman must risk everything to keep the long lost work of a Renaissance master from falling into the hands of thieves I never gave a book this low rating on Goodreads The storyline was done before by Dan Brown and so many other authors that is way better The way to bring the reader in, the hook is bad It took me a while to get a hang of the storyline When main focus on character changes in chapters, it is too sudden to know where actually that character was and their timeline began little that we don t know what that character in that period of time. Sorry, Mr Carcaterra, but I could not get into this book I couldn t even finish it I have been way to tired lately to spend any time or precious energy on a book with such stilted, unnatural dialogue In the first chapter, we meet 2 unnamed people who are killed by some other unnamed person In the second chapter, we meet 2 completely different people who are running away from some group of bad guys for reasons unknown Eh Starting the reader off in the middle of the action needs to be done Sorry, Mr Carcaterra, but I could not get into this book I couldn t even finish it I have been way to tired lately to spend any time or precious energy on a book with such stilted, unnatural dialogue In the first chapter, we meet 2 unnamed people who are killed by some other unnamed person In the second chapter, we meet 2 completely different people who are running away from some group of bad guys for reasons unknown Eh Starting the reader off in the middle of the action needs to be done with a certain amount of finesse, but all I got was chaos And clearing up the mysterious beginning in subsequent chapters was largely done via conversations between the characters Seriously, there is a conversation in which two characters, Kate and Marco, are explaining how they met and why they are hanging out to each other What People in this book aren t so much conversing as spouting exposition at each other, and the dialog that isn t practically pure exposition is still overly earnest I kept waiting for the action to pick up or the characters to start soundingreal, but at almost a third of the way in, I had to give up It takes a lot of bad to earn only two stars when a book includes so many things that I like Museums, academia, libraries, classical art, the Renaissance, likable characters in a want to see setting This book has it all.But when you consistently have all of your likable characters avoid simple, safe and non risky alternatives in favor of deadly, insanely stupid and over the top ones, and you repeat this over and over and over and over again throughout the entire course of a book, you get two It takes a lot of bad to earn only two stars when a book includes so many things that I like Museums, academia, libraries, classical art, the Renaissance, likable characters in a want to see setting This book has it all.But when you consistently have all of your likable characters avoid simple, safe and non risky alternatives in favor of deadly, insanely stupid and over the top ones, and you repeat this over and over and over and over again throughout the entire course of a book, you get two stars It was so bad that I was practically laughing at the decision making processes by the end of it I mean, really Since pretty much everyone had a death wish, they should have probably just done a collective swan dive off the top of the Ponte Vecchio and been done with it I don t want to say I was dissapointed by this book, but it just didn t seem like a typical Lorenzo Carcaterra book Instead, it seemed closer to a Dan Brown novel Someone else said it was like watching a shoot em up movie and I couldn t agreeJust too much of the plot seemed TOO unbelievable My main problem however was Carcaterra seemed to jump forward in the book TOO much One scene a bad guy character won t say which one tied to a chair and you think he is caught Then a chapter lat I don t want to say I was dissapointed by this book, but it just didn t seem like a typical Lorenzo Carcaterra book Instead, it seemed closer to a Dan Brown novel Someone else said it was like watching a shoot em up movie and I couldn t agreeJust too much of the plot seemed TOO unbelievable My main problem however was Carcaterra seemed to jump forward in the book TOO much One scene a bad guy character won t say which one tied to a chair and you think he is caught Then a chapter later he is walking freely about to enter a showdown shot em up scene Your reading this going, Oh wait, he got away Like it s a bad Bond film or something So I didn t like the whole you just figure it out on your own stuff.That being said, Carcaterra gets you to really like a lot of his characters, much like he did in Street Boys and Apaches and Gangster, and of course, Sleepers It was just no ONE character really stood out to me like in Carcaterra s other novels I figure not every great writer can be flawless, and I ll take this as Carcaterra s one book in the five that I ve read that isn t great I m still going to continue reading him, and I can t wait for his next book I do recommend this book for any fans of Carcaterra, but approach knowing it s not the same type of book as his others
