Messiah But soon the polarizing leader is no longer a passenger or a prophet but a corpse, beaten to death by someone almost supernaturally strong But not everything is as it seems, and someone else sailing has become enmeshed in the mystery the seemingly slow but actually astute sleuth Sister Pelagia Her investigation of the crime will take her deep into the most dangerous areas of the Middle East and Russia, running from one eyed criminals and after such unlikely animals as a red cockerel that may be than a red herring To her shock, she will emerge with not just the culprit in a murder case but a clue to the earth s greatest secretSister Pelagia and the Red Cockerel features its beloved heroine s most exciting and explosive inquiry yet, one that just might shake the foundations of her faith As soon as I finished The Black Monk, I plunged into The Red Cockerel, which had been waiting patiently on the Kindle for several years Sadly, I didn t like it as much as the other Sister Pelagia s novels It was CONFUSING It had too little of too much So many interesting threads, all of them leading either nowhere or getting snapped just a few inches centimetres whatever later I did

the story, only truncated it and b Did not make sense I m a literary dunce, but I get a chime that Akunin borrowed the Great Inquisitor from Dostoevsky in this one That s an original idea, but it could have been done cooler Akunin s most grisly story, but a great one nevertheless I m going to miss sister Pelagia Full review here Akunin s most grisly story, but a great one nevertheless I m going to miss sister Pelagia Full review here This book reminds me somewhat of a mayonnaise gone slightly wrong It has all the required ingredients, many of which are of the highest quality, but their proportions, the way in which they have been added and the sequence of their incorporation and direction of stir are not the best and the result lacks smoothness and satisfaction If I were to rate

It has all the required ingredients, many of which are of the highest quality, but their proportions, the way in which they have been added and the sequence of their incorporation and direction of stir are not the best and the result lacks smoothness and satisfaction If I were to rate this book on the basis of its last 2 3 chapters I would give it 5They are striking in their intensity, imagination, profundity and audacity, and in their ability to provoke thought we are given a touch of Faust, of Leo Tolstoy and Dante Alighieri all in the space of a few pages And by then they are a most welcome reprieve Because at other moments, earlier in the text I was left for long stretches in a state of profound ennui Cut to the chase Boris I would say Why so many characters I would add And why are so many of them so similar What am I missing It is like a game of chess with too many rooks, and far far too many pawns Too many protagonists are given similar weightings and I found myself unable to commit myself to any one of them for any length of time other than to Sister Pelagia and to Bishop Mitrofanii whom we have enjoyed so much earlier in the series And I suppose I wanted to see a littleof them too I love your books Boris, but I think I ll take a wee break from Sister Pelagia and from Erast Fandorin for a while maybe see you again in the springtime Religious mysteries seem to be in vogue, but this was just stupid I ve never heard of special caves or their relationship to red roosters before, maybe it s a russian thing or completely from the author s imagination, but that plot point was so out there it ruined the story for me The strange town and castle with the psychotic russian nobleman were hardly believable, but the super assassin and the graphic details of his kills were stomach churning and ultimately unresolved This is supposed Religious mysteries seem to be in vogue, but this was just stupid I ve never heard of special caves or their relationship to red
