    MOBI River of Smoke PDF/EPUB ¼ River of PDF/EPUB or ã pnoy.me river book, smoke pdf, River of pdf, River of Smoke KindleI really enjoyed book one of this pending trilogy Sea of Poppies was action packed tense enjoyable reading with characters I liked and rooted for Imagine my surprise when River of Smoke which I bought immediately after finishing Sea of Poppies turned out to be a crashing bore What happened to our main characters? At the end of Sea of Poppies they escaped in a storm? I was anxious to follow their progress through book two Mr Ghosh had other ideas but it seemed to me that he pretty much phoned this one in We do have two returning characters Neel and Paulette but they are virtually unrecognizable as the people we read about in book one Instead we get new characters and they are not nearly as interesting as the bunch in book one In fact th

    MOBI River of Smoke PDF/EPUB ¼ River of PDF/EPUB or ã pnoy.me river book, smoke pdf, River of pdf, River of Smoke KindleThe preceeding book Sea of Poppies ends in a stereotypical cliffhanger so I expected AG to continue the tale with all the same characters in River of Smoke and AG may have entertained this plan at the time Instead we are injected after the briefest enchainement into a new scenario namely the lead up to the Opium War We follow only a small number of the characters from SoP and some of these are transformed from agents to spectators AG continues exercising his storyteller's flair Only occasionally does RoS degenerate into a shaggy dog storydom with AG overindulging his enthusiasm for narrative minutiaeRoS is another highly enjoyable read and given the acknowledgements conforms closely with actual events

I absolutely LOVED The Glass Palace and despite a slow beginning and some troubling language in the first work in this trilogy – Sea of Poppies – I ended up uite taken with it drawn into the plotlines and characters and wanted to jump right into this while all of the terminology names locations family lineages etc were fresh However it seems that barely anything from S of P carries over We never see 80% of the cast here and the ones that we do appear as helpers minor characters who don’t really DO anything other than observe others around them – Neel is a writer for an opium dealer; Paulette Puggly works with plants with a botanist One character from S of P Baboo Nob Kissin appears – honestly – for 2 pages and then to
