New York computer whizz-kid, Tony Luna, is burnt out at the tender age of 19. Working since his mid-teens as a video games developer he makes the sudden decision—against his mother’s wishes—to quit and investigate his late father’s Sicilian aristocratic ancestry.
So far, nothing unusual. As far as the story goes, anyway. The writing is a different matter. It’s lovely. The language embraced me and took me into the story, away from my own setting and into Tony’s.
This book is not a quick read. Originally three novellas the author has rolled them into one very-satisfyingly long read. I love a big book and much to my regret these are now hard to find.
Mind you, to keep you reading big books need to be good.
And this one is good. I found the phrase ‘tour de force’ playing around in my mind and I don’t think I’m wrong.
It has so many elements in its exploration of the present entwined with the past that presents lessons that Tony needs to learn for the future that I find it hard to put it into any genre. I notice that in Amazon’s best-selling lists it’s categorised under Visionary, Metaphysical, Horror, and Occult. One could add Fantasy, Computing, Crime—and probably more than I can conjure up.
This is a story that defies easy labelling and that's part of its beauty and appeal. There is so much going on it totally occupies the mind.
This is the perfect book for those times when you are in the mood for something different from the usual genres. Although I bought this book, I don't know why Amazon doesn't seem to remember the purchase.
She so obviously loves and has extensive knowledge of Sicily, and has breathed life into its major characters and heroes.
Although Tony comes from the future, he gradually embraces his past, his ancestors, and watches, like a spectator would, Sicilian history unravel before his very eyes in the Circolo dell Conversazione. I have been inside said Circolo myself and marvel at Claude's accuracy of description. This author has an eye for the visual arts and clearly depicts her characters and places so you feel transported to the same places.
I thoroughly recommend this read if you like mystery, fantasy and technology. Claude Nougat is a very talented writer and I look forward to reading her other book, Death on facebook.
Keep writing, Ms. Nougat!
The book combines elements of mystery, time travel, and the searching of family history into the Forget The Past trilogy. Antonio Bellomo who lives in Montreal, is the main character and is extremely intelligent but finds himself in a stage of `burnout' before age eighteen. He is a natural born computer hacker and a genius programmer for video game software.
Antonio finished school at age thirteen and now overnight he feels like an old man. He woke up one morning and felt he could not get out of bed. He did not want to open his computer. After calling into the office `sick', he stays in bed for a week and then decides to quit his job and to go visit his mother. His dad had died many years before, and he has not been close with his mom. The visit with his mother does not go smoothly because of her complaining and telling him that he is lazy.
Antonio felt he needed to go to Sicily and try to find an old family palace which was lost centuries ago due to his great grandfather's gambling. He travels to Ortigia and visits the palace, but is surprised to find it is a museum with no pictures or any indication that the palace was ever owned by his ancestors. With great disappointment, he finishes the tour of the palace and walks around the old town from street to street. He has gotten hot, hungry and tired. As he is using his smartphone to try and locate his lodging, he sees an odd building. It is painted a baby blue and has columns. There are two very unusual stone lions sitting on the roof with an eagle carved between them. The lion statues held a white stone banner between them which was inscribed, "Circolo di Conversazione" or The Circle of Conversation. The guidebook did not list this building and now Antonio is intrigued. He walks to the door and looks for a bell. There was a large copper handle which moved easily as he held it and pushed on the door.
Now begins a shocking journey and you may ask yourself, "Is he alive, or is he dead?"
Join Antonio as he learns of his ancestors and past historic events and how they have intertwined with people and personalities. What if...you fell in desperate love with someone from the distant past, and you continue to see her eyes within a different person in a different time, in each century and generation you visit? Is memory genetically inherited? Can you save yourself from past events? What about the future ... and a virtual world of life which can be interactive with internet social clubs...Read the book for answers!
