HASH(0x94cae978) étoiles sur 5 Large improvement from The Reincarnationist 9 février 2009
Par M.Jacobsen - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
The Memorist is author M.J. Rose's follow-up novel to The Reincarnationist and she has again taken themes of reincarnation, this time weaving 19th century Vienna and the musical world of Ludwig van Beethoven with modern-day terrorist plots. A fast paced historical thriller, The Memorist takes the best elements of The Reincarnationist and improves upon them.

Although there is one carry-over character present, The Memorist is most assuredly a stand-alone novel.

One of the pleasures of reading an M.J. Rose novel is her approach to historical fiction. While much of The Memorist takes place in present day Vienna, her forays into the 19th century are impeccably researched. She incorporates fascinating details into her story, many of which the reader might dismiss as part of the creative license a historical fiction writer so often invokes. It isn't until reaching the author's note at the end of the novel that the full extent of Rose's research becomes apparent.

If the plot synopsis above sounds vaguely familiar, it's because the plot of The Memorist is almost identical to that of her earlier novel, The Reincarnationist. New characters, new memories of past lives, and new artifacts for the protagonist to chase, but the plot movment is the same.

However, the improvements over The Reincarnationist are quickly apparent. Characters are more fleshed-out and their motivations better explored, giving the reader closer relationship with the characters.

Rose's penchant for over-populating her novels with characters is still present, but the improved characterizations make it much easier to keep track of just who is who.

But the very best quality of The Memorist is Rose's ability to meld time and place, even over the span of centuries, while still maintaining a tight, fast-paced thiller that keeps you guessing to the end.

Recommended, of course, for anyone with interest in reincarnation, but also for those who have a love of classical music (Beethoven plays a pretty big role in this novel!) or for those who just want to see a good example of blending modern day with the past.

HASH(0x94a5bbd0) étoiles sur 5 Breaking down the walls of time, this thriller seduces 9 mars 2009
Par Jessica B. Keener - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
In her newest thriller,The Memorist, MJ Rose boldly embraces the mysteries of time, memory, and music, as she once again takes on the complexities of reincarnation and its dire consequences. Set primarily in Beethoven's Vienna as well as present day Vienna, with occasional throwbacks to 2000 BCE, a thirty-something woman named Meer, plagued by unexplained visions, is at the center of controversy with deathly consequences. So is her archeologist father, Beethoven himself, Beethoven's friend, a journalist who chases modern-day terrorists, and a brilliant, monomaniacal, eccentric man obsessed with unlocking past lives. All become part of an emotional fugue that culminates in an explosive ending reminiscent of Dante's purgatory. Secret, underground tunnels twisting beneath Vienna's streets, ancient vaults and catacombs create a biblical-like backdrop as Meer, her father and others race to break down the walls of time to get at the past--one to save his son, another to save her father. Readers will love MJ's deft ability to move back and forth between the ages, and will be seduced by her knowledge of music and her ability to convey music's power to resurrect the soul.

HASH(0x94ca89f0) étoiles sur 5 superb thriller 4 novembre 2008
Par Harriet Klausner - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
As a youngster, Meer Logan only drew pictures of what looked like a treasure chest. Her family obviously noticing the pattern asked her why she insisted on drawing only this object. Meer explained that she had seen it before although no one including her could figure out when; her parents assumed it was youthful imagination though they were somewhat concerned with her seemingly compulsive behavior disorder.

Now an adult, Meer's sixty-five year old dad Jeremy, known as the "Jewish Indiana Jones" and who works in a Vienna auction house found the box listed in an auction catalogue. Inside the box is a letter that leads Jeremy to conclude that the artifact once was owned by Beethoven's beloved. Meer heads to Austria where memories flood her mind starting with the same flute tune that makes her wonder if she was Beethoven's lover in a previous life. As father and daughter seek a mystical flute, a murder and the stealing of the box and its letter makers both of them fear someone has a different fate in store for them.

THE MEMORIST is much more complex than the exhilarating THE REINCARNATIONIST, as M.J. Rose provides a superb thriller. There are several subplots that converge on Meer who like her dad begins to believe in her previous life. Meer, her dad and several other support players are fully developed so that the audience believes in all the seemingly paranormal nuances. Set aside plenty of time as this is not a fast read, but worth the time as THE MEMORIST is memorable.

HASH(0x952a5bb8) étoiles sur 5 Cannot Understand All the Good Reviews 22 avril 2012
Par aek15 - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Poche Achat vérifié
I read this book based on all the positive reviews here. It is extremely rare that I cannot finish a book, but I just couldn't continue with this one. I was so bored! I had thought the premise would be fascinating, but it just wasn't. The characters are disjointed; they are either so shallowly written, that you cannot get to know them, or they are so cliched, you know them too well because you've seen them many times before in poorly-written novels, bad movie scripts, or trite TV shows. There's lots of repetition by the writer (how many times is Meer going to hear music in her head and either be deeply disturbed by it, black out, and/or be transported back in time--how many I ask you?). Or how about children sinking into their own mysterious - and sinister - world - have we seen this a million times in Grade B movies? I initially thought the premise so wonderfully original, but the delivery was so utterly hackneyed.

HASH(0x952a5c84) étoiles sur 5 Well Paced and Interesting 6 juillet 2011
Par Man of La Book - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Poche
"The Mem­o­rist" by M.J. Rose is the sec­ond in fic­tional "The Rein­car­na­tion­ist" series. As in the first book, this one also deals with past lives and the mys­tery behind them.

Meers Logan is haunted by night­mares which seem vivid and real. She can smell, see and hear faint music which she can't put her fin­ger on. When an enve­lope addressed to the Phoenix Foun­da­tion, which is ded­i­cated to recov­ery of past life mem­o­ries, Meers rec­og­nize the box which she spent years imagining.

Meers is deter­mained to unlock the mys­tery and trav­els to Vienna to recover the lost mem­ory Flute linked to the great com­poser Lud­wig van Beethoven.

I liked "The Rein­car­na­tion­ist" and "The Mem­o­rist" by M. J. Rose didn't dis­ap­point either. When I saw that the book starts out quot­ing the Zohar I imme­di­ately knew that the author has done her research.

While "The Mem­o­rist" is a bit slower than the pre­vi­ous novel, I thought the story was more inter­est­ing, the char­ac­ters are more fleshed out and Vienna comes alive. Some of the char­ac­ters from the first novel make an appear­ance, and even have an impor­tant role, how­ever one need not read the first book to enjoy this one (even tough I would rec­om­mend it).

Ms. Rose com­plied a bunch of beliefs about rein­car­na­tion from sev­eral reli­gions and reli­gious texts and did a great job com­bin­ing them and explain­ing some com­plex the­ol­ogy in sim­ple terms.

On a side note: I loved that Ms. Rose incor­po­rated Beethoven's Immor­tal Beloved into this book. From some rea­son I just got a kick out of it when it "clicked".

If you fol­low my blog you know that I enjoy a diverse range of books and am not afraid to tackle dif­fi­cult and long books. One of the main rea­sons I enjoy these books is because they intro­duce me to a con­cept that is con­tro­ver­sial and not part of the main­stream. While I don't know if I believe in rein­car­na­tion (though it sure would be nice) I still find it inter­est­ing to read about.
