#my favorite author #favorite author his ability to weave historical truth with fiction and for his portrayal f the African American community both modern day and historically so accurate in its incisiveness and so taunt in his analysis The Black Dahlia Files The Mob the Mogul and the Murder That Transfixed Los Angeles of it I ve never encountered an author beforer since who had such an accurate compelling and thought provoking voice about the upper echelons كتاب تنقيح المناظر لذوى الأبصار والبصائر of black culture the very embodimentf WEB Dubois Talented Tenth the subculture within a culture that so few even know exists with its 1000 essential movies on video own rich history s and societal rules Carter displayed allf this and within the pages Disarm of Palace Council and that I lapped up with the enthusiasm you d expect fromne who d gone too long without such substanceI ve seen Carter s work described as being Dan Brown like and it s true they do share the element First Drop of Crimson of mysteries solved throughbscure literary references and the thrill The Poet of running from killers hellbentn snatching the clues the protagonist has found for themselves But may I step in here and say that Stephen L Carter is wily than Dan Brown his plots complex in so many ways Carter s novels center around both the present and past The Poet of affluent African American culture which allows his reader a basisn which to start from in every read and the thrill Eleven of seeing unexpected recurrencesf previous characters in diverse stages Intermediate ROBLOX Programming of their lives For example The Emperorf Ocean Park revolves around the Garland family who also play a prominent part in Palace Council set 50 years before the events in Emperor even happened Readers who love to follow characters La Deutsche Vita over the spansf their lives who don t just want to see them 100 Days of Believing Bigger: Devotional Journal one and done inne novel will love this as I do This is Carter s angle pun intended for those who ve read this book rather than the Bond like supporting female characters Lettres au Castor et à uelues autres of Brown s novelsStephen L Carter s novels are always decadent in setting but Palace Council took the cake Sweeping from Harlem to Washington DC to Saigon and back again it s the details here that filled so many pagesf this novel There are so many minute and intricate details here that make their world solid and complete from street names in Hong Kong to delicious elements The Shiny Guys of historic eventsf the 50s 60s and 70s that this Power les 48 lois du pouvoir one novel could easily be made into a multi season TV series and should Yet in the settingf Dharamsala, Tibetan Refuge one book it was a lot to take in atnce If it s possible for The Pebbles On The Beach one to drown in literary details I must say I certainly struggled to stay afloat at times keeping characters and their bloodlines straight amidst the historical events surrounding them from Kent State to the Tet Offensive to JFK s assassination and beyond At times the narrative moved at too slow a pace filled with historical filler and unnecessary scenes both which slowed the plot in true literary form rather than urging it forward While these historical landmarks the dates sometimes toyed with for the benefitf the characters at Carter s admission helped to center the players within these pages and paint a complete picture A Casebook on Existentialism of the age they lived in there were also so many times where historic events seemed just dumped in there I hesitate to say haphazardly because I doubt Carter does anything haphazard ever And I ll admit the plot was sometimes muddled and muddied by Carter s abundancef clever asides and descriptive tags galore But Carter s novels reside in the company between Dan Brown s thrillers steeped in literary puzzles and Salman Rushdie s erudition And for that he warrants all the praise he has garnered and remains my favorite author to date Palace Council earned a solid 4 stars sullied Shigeru Miyamoto only by the editor s inability to rein thisne in a little

I want to weep with disgust that a book can be so banal and so long Reading it was mentally exhausting and emotionally distressing because it was so dull and yet so complicated It s a murder mystery a political thriller a missing persons uest ranging from 1952 to 1975 among Harlem s black upper class It has Dan Brown like elements Comment analyser les gens: Analyser et lire les gens en utilisant des mthodes prouves de psychologie humaine, le langage corporel, les comptences sociales, et la communication non verbale of conspiracy riddles are solved with the helpf passages from Paradise Lost and Lady Chatterley s Lover The most annoying thing is Carter s insistence The Man Died Prison Notes of Wole Soyinka on incorporating every possible historical event into his narrative Chappauiddick it s here The characters aren Martha s Vineyard when it goes down Watergate Kent State the moon landing the Weather Underground bombing in Manhattan the Attica prison riot the Tet Offensive the discovery f the ldest human remains in Kenya political assassinations they all happen here Richard Nixon is implausibly friends with Eddie and Aurie the two main characters Eddie also writes speeches for JFK and before that he was mentored by Langston Hughes later in Vietnam he sees William Colby CIA Chief Întâlnire cu Thomas Cresswell of Station limbering up for a tennis match He pays a visit to Joseph P Kennedy to solicit help finding his missing sister It makesne think أميرة قرطبة of the roads not taken would it have been too much effort for Eddie to have had an affair with Marilyn Monroer perhaps cradled a dying Martin Luther King Jr in his arms Perhaps Aurie could have fallen in love with Spiro Agnew Someone could have seen Bernard Barker running from the Watergate complex as they were making love to Eartha Kitt in the Howard Johnson s across the streetCarter thanks his marvelous editor Phyllis

want to state clearly I liked it pretty well and I like Stephen Carter s voice This book could use a very efficient editor The plot wanders and there are too many twists It makes me think f being a kid sitting in church during the sermon and the preacher would use his wrapping it up cadence and then plunge right back in and keep going Palace Council had too many non climaxes Also too many characters Ultimately it was confusing which can easily slip into boring I adore Carter s subjects This book is set in the black political class in Harlem and Washington during the Kennedy Johnson and Nixon administrations A fascinating society in a fascinating tim.
