I received an Advance Reader Copy of this one in exchange for an honest review, so here goes with my honestyHarry Houdini led a fascinating life His career was only part of it He was a magician s magician, an aviator, and a fierce opponent of the spiritualism movement Martin Strauss, the supposed 2 time killer of Houdini in The Confabulist, never existed I guess I was hoping for a slightlyfleshed out version of the story of the life and many death s of Harry Houdini, but instead I received an Advance Reader Copy of this one in exchange for an honest review, so here goes with my

completely fabricated spy story, with only partially realized characters I knew that Houdini s opposition to the spiritualism movement won him many enemies, but the speculation in this book brought me so far outside the story, that I couldn t enjoy it The best parts of the book were, by far, the descriptions of Houdini s escapes, while the parts about Strauss were so washed out that I was unable to get a sense of him as a cha Was Ist Wahr, Und Was Ist Illusion Erz Hlern Ist Zuweilen Nicht Zu Trauen Besonders Wenn Sie, Wie Martin Strauss, An Einer Seltenen Neurologischen Krankheit Leiden, An Der

life, and after reading The Confabulist it makes me wonder if anybody has the real story on Houdini anyways I really enjoyed it, all of the twists and turns that it takes and the idea that not everything is as it seems, that even our own memories have ways of playing tricks on us My only complaint is that I di I know that some other reviews have complained about t A very intriguing book It

false memories, confabulations, so that Strauss will, over time, cease to know which of his mem Well what a fascinating story If you are interested in Houdini, or magic like I am,you would certainly want to read this book Galloway is such a diverse novelist and I can t wait to read what he has in store nex I m very conflicted about this book, on one hand it had a very intriguing plot based on who Harry Houdini was and what all he possibly had done The book focusses on Harry Houdini and Martin Strauss whose lives intersect with regularity and a tad bit of magical realism The story structure has several flashbacks and flashforwards so as to say , this can be quite confusing for any reader to keep track of.Overall I would say this book is a decent stor I m not sure if I ve recommended this author before or not, but the book I want to recommend this month is THE CONFABULIST by Steven Galloway The first of his books I read was ASCENSION, and it had one of the most riveting opening chapters I have ever read This new book is about the magician Houdini and the man who killed him It is a twisted puzzler wrapped around the lives of the two man and many others, a love story for each, and the ways in which we view life when we want to remake it Thi I m not sure if I ve recommended this author before or not, but the book I want to recommend this month is THE CONFABULIST by Steven
