    The Alchemist's Daughter Review × 109 The Alchemist's DaughterThose of you who are Old School know about the original Legend of Zelda The first game in the Zelda franchise was epic It was badass In my personal opinion few games have been as awesome since This book is a lot like the original Legend of Zelda Unfortunately it is like all the crappy and stupid aspects of that game and none of the cool ones Witness as I extrapolate The main character in this book lacks personality All of the things that sound kind of cool about her like she knows about alchemy in the end amount to practically footnotes as she wanders her way through a storyline always doing the most obvious thing at the moment At first she takes the tools thrust upon her by her father and lets him mold her personality entirely Like the little old man in the cave who gives Link his first sword thereby bringing slaughter upon the legions of weird animals wandering Hy

    The Alchemist's Daughter Review × 109 The Alchemist's DaughterThis book was a cross between literary fiction and bodice ripper romance Katharine McMahon seems to be sitting over the fence not uite sure what kind of book she wanted to write She put her heroine in a similar position Emilie is not uite sure if she prefers to sit in the lab and peform physical and chemical experiments or if she would rather have that dashing young man grab her and take her take her like there is no tomorrow This weird combination worked surprisingly well but must have given McMahon's publisher a bit of a headacheIt's not clean cut enough for the publishing world maybe but isn't it true We can all be very smart and sophisticated and suddenly unexplicably we fall for a guy who has a peanut for brain and we don't seem to care Im our heads we go from 'literary fiction' to 'bodice rippers' in no timeI was a littl

    The Alchemist's Daughter Review × 109 The Alchemist's DaughterKatharine McMahon is an excellent example of the problem I have with modern writers In reading or listening to in this case her book I found I was transported through the ailes of a book store One moment I was reading something out of historical fiction then scientific theory and then a trashy romance noveland there lies

    The Alchemist's Daughter Review × 109 The Alchemist's DaughterI just didn't really get into this book but trudged my way through hoping it would get interesting It sounded interesting beautiful intelligent Emilie raised in seclusion by her father to be an alchemist and natural philosopher is swept off her feet by the first

    The Alchemist's Daughter Review × 109 The Alchemist's DaughterI have read a LOT of negative reviews about this book and I really don't get it I must have horrible taste then because I absolutely LOVED it Written on Feb 24 2009 at 0929PM Read the Dutch translation

    The Alchemist's Daughter Review × 109 The Alchemist's DaughterIt is rare for me to say this about a book but I did not like this book It was disappointing and not at all satisfying I'm not sure what I expected perhaps for it to be a bit like the conservative 19th century England of Austen novels which it wasn't It was well written and seemingly well researched but the characters were dull and the plot was dumb I didn't like the storyline at all I really thought it would grow on me or even get better as it progressed but it never did The scientific dialogue goes over the reader's head unless one happens to be an expert in 18th century alchemy and scientific principles of the time Um not so much I got the distinct impression that the author was really impressed with herself for everything she wrote about those topics but her time would have been much better spent devel

    The Alchemist's Daughter Review × 109 The Alchemist's DaughterI read halfway through this book one evening but then it didn't seem worth finishing The plot description made it sound like an intelligent book about an intelligent woman livinglearning at the time of Isaac Newton But the book wasn't smart and neither was the main character The author latched onto one concept in alchemy and just repeats it so the character can impress everyone she meets rather than giving any additional insight into the philosophies and views of the time In fact the book seemed to be some genre I might describe as woman recovers from youthful bodice ripping incident to

    The Alchemist's Daughter Review × 109 The Alchemist's DaughterIt's strange the way some stories don't get to you This one had everything I should love in a novel an evocative setting a smart heroine an exploration of a father daughter relationship a touch of mystery and of course some romance But there's something that didn't click Maybe the lack of elegance in the prose maybe the intented to be well researched long descriptions of scientific experiments; but I found I didn't care a bit about Emily's fate or about the outcome of the story The characters were unidimensional and not well crafted the father an obsessed man the daughter too naïve to be believable the hu

    The Alchemist's Daughter Review × 109 The Alchemist's DaughterAnother really good book I love historical fiction The main character Emilie drove me crazy at some points because she made such bad crazy decisions But I had to remind myself that it was the time period she was growing up in and also that she had lived a very sheltered life which could definitely happen in that time period I did enjoy the story though and it was based on real situations Sir Issac Newton was in the book a lot as we
