Očaravajući roman o burnom putu jedne mlade žene od cirkuske jahačice i kurtizane do svetski poznate diveLilijet Bern je senzacija Pariske opere legendarni soprano sa svim priznanjima osim životne uloge koju svaki pevač želi kako bi postao besmrtan Kad joj takvu ulogu ponude ona shvata sa strepnjom da se libreto zasniva na. This is a masterfully written book Chee just is masterful I loved this novel I loved the density of the prose and the almost obsessive attention to detail and the intricate plot that never stopped even when the last line had been written I do think some of the recaps of the various operas was just a bridge too far like let s wrap it up friend These recaps though full of interesting detail made the otherwise lively story drag a bit but I mean still this book is masterful ueen of the Night is operatic in all senses of the word The drama is so very dramatic The women are full of depth and humanity and archness and are so powerfully written There is so much story here and I absorbed all of it greedily
