August 2014. There wasn’t really anything that I dislike in the story maybe Hester as a person but that’s it that I didn’t like. Death is explored throughout the story; from the beginning to the end. The ending, to me, was a surprise. The Thirteenth Tale (2006) by Diane Setterfield is a gothic suspense novel, the author's first published book. Vida has been confounding her biographers and fans for years by giving everybody a different version of her life, each time swearing it's the truth.  Um die Gesamtbewertung der Sterne und die prozentuale Aufschlüsselung nach Sternen zu berechnen, verwenden wir keinen einfachen Durchschnitt. I liked how it left you guessing for most of it and then when everything was revealed it all made perfect sense. The supernatural aspects of the book often recur and the sightings of doppelgangers tense up the air. Aurelius is found with a torn page from Jane Eyre. But unlike Jane, Hester does not fall in love with the master of the house- Charlie. Settle down to enjoy a rousing good ghost story with Diane Setterfield's debut novel, The Silent Companions: The prize-winning ghost story, The Secret History: From the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of The Goldfinch. She is unexpectedly spellbound by the stories and confused when she realises the book contains only twelve stories. Rezension aus Deutschland vom 18. Was Emmeline actually Emmeline? The Thirteenth Tale, Diane Setterfield The Thirteenth Tale, by Diane Setterfield is a gothic suspense novel, the author's first published book in (2006). This change is later explained in the book, when the idea of a cousin is introduced. Miss Winter only being a half sister to the twins and not actually being Adeline was mind blowing. The change between the different sections in this book is indicated by a small graphic or an asterisk or a new chapter. From that, they were able to become the people they were- detached from everyone but each other. Well written - I found the characters enthralling. The chapters of the book switch between the past and present day life of the two main characters (Margaret Lea, Vida Winter). Finally, at the end of the book, Vida Winter, known as the ghost of Angelfield House, loses her most beloved person, the twin thought to be Emmeline her half sister. Lea is surprised by the proposal, as she is only vaguely aware of the famous author and has not read any of the dozens of novels penned by Winter. It’s crazy that you’ll just never know. What I liked about the ending is how Aurelius got to find out the truth about his past and got to live a happy ending with relatives. Lebendige (wenn auch teils recht seltsame) Personen und ein sehr flüssiger Schreibstil machen für mich das Buch aus. 4 Personen fanden diese Informationen hilfreich, Rezension aus Deutschland vom 26. Rezension aus Deutschland vom 3. All my questions throughout the book were definitely answered. Miss Winter said she always looked sickly and she needed to eat more, but I assumed it was because of the job of writing Miss Winter’s biography or the “mourning” of her lost twin. It greatly affected the mental abilities of each twin. It explains a lot though. And it is reading that is able to make her withdraw into herself as she does yet it also brings her back out. Was Vida Adeline, Emmeline and the ghost child??? --Valerie Ryan. (Englisch) Gebundene Ausgabe – Rauer Buchschnitt, 12. Another child lived in the house that remained hidden from outsiders and perhaps from Isabelle and Charlie as well. Jane Eyre provides a link among all these characters, and the ripped pages indicate the ending of all their stories. Many of Winter's fans considered the omission of the thirteenth story a delightful mystery, and all wanted the answer to it. I felt lied to but at the same time I always wondered how all of the sudden Adeline became so mature and “normal”, so there being a third sibling makes everything click. Adeline was violent and voliatle, she took the baby boy that Emmeline gave birth to and was going to burn him in the fireplace. Angeblich sollte die Geschichte leicht gruselig sein, davon war für mich nichts zu spüren, aber spannend war es trotzdem. Didn't guess the ending which is also bonus! When Hester and Dr Maudsley experiment with original case study research, the separation of the twins is painful for all to see. After Emmeline gave birth to her baby, Vida spent time keeping an eye on the baby, Emmeline, and Adeline. Loss recurs in Vida Winter's story of the twins, with Isabelle departing for a mental asylum, Charlie committing suicide, Hester Barrow disappearing, and John-the-dig and Missus dying. The logic clings to every detail, connects the signs, reveals the hidden meanings and quickly approaches to the end. Earlier, I was questioning Aurelius’s relevancy, but then in the end it all came together. Jill Tanner accomplishes a tour de force as the enigmatic and mysterious Vida ... her voice takes on the strength and power of a master storyteller as she weaves her spellbinding life story. Besonders begeistert haben mich die vielen Motive aus englischen Romanen des 19.

Charlie, the disturbed brother, may have improved his behaviour. It was definitely the most shocking part of the book. Get your answers by asking now. As Vida Winter tells her story to Lea, she shares dark family secrets which have long been kept hidden. In cases where the "evil twin" is not physically distinguishable from the "good twin", a typical plot resolution will involve the banishment and unmasking of the "evil twin". At the novel's inception, Lea divulges her work in her father's antique book store, her one-time jaunt as an amateur biographer, and her chance discovery at age 10 that she was born a conjoined twin, her sister dying shortly after their separation.
