    PDF or EBOOK (The Floating Admiral) Simon Brett has written the foreward for this ingenious novel as the President of the Detection Club in 2001 when the book was re printed The origins of the club are as shrouded in mystery as the members own work although it was probably founded in 1928 As Brett points out crime fiction has changed a lot since the days of Golden Age mysteries A lot of books written in that time were in a way puzzles with clues you could supposedly work out

    PDF or EBOOK (The Floating Admiral) The idea to write with several writers a story each following the former one is great I enjoyed also recoginizing the specifics especially of the well known authorsSadly in the great idea there is also weakness The different parts are very uneven and some are not so good at all And on a certain level there is no feeling

review The Floating Admiral The Floating Admiral Free download ✓ 104 characters º PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook ¸ The Detection Club Agatha Christie Dorothy L Sayers GK Chesterton and nine other writers from the legendary Detection Club collaborate in this fiendishly clever but forgotten crime novel first published 80 years agoInspector Rudge does not encounter many cases of murder in the sleepy seaside tow. 35 The Detection Club must have been the coolest club around A group of highly successful mystery writers getting together sharing their love of mysteries detective fiction over regular dinners in LondonThe idea of a group of the members each writing a chapter to a murder mystery was intriguing with writers as skilled as Agatha Christie Dorothy L Sayers involved what could go wrongUnfortunately uite a bit After GK Chesterton s introduction which I have already forgotten Victor L Whitechurch got the story off to a cracking start all the writer s kept to a similar tone But Milward Kennedy readcompletely different than the other writers It really didn t flow well at all Dorothy L Sayers did her best to get the story on track but unfortunately the writer that followed her Ronald A Knox followed with an incredibly dry list of uestions possible suspects Able writing by the rest of the writers including a wonderful twist from Clemence Dane couldn t save this book for me after that I would recommend skipping Knox s chapter altogether It does nothing but drag the book down A problem with writing with your mates I guess Sayers wasn t ruthless enough as an editor the appendix where each writer gave their solution Another disappointment as for me the most interesting person to hear from would have been the writer of Chapter 1 but Whitechurch the writers of Chapter 2 The Coles didn t give their solutions I would have loved to have read where he thought the story would go Knox gave another dull list before offering his solution No surprise here but I liked Christie s ideas the bestSo in Whitechurch Dane John Rhode I have found new writers I want to try others I will uite definitely avoid

I really did want to like this book a lot First published in 1931 the premise of the novel is ingenious Each chapter was written by a different member of the Detection Club an association of British crime fiction writers As Dorothy L Sayers explains in the introduction the idea was that each writer tackled the mystery presented in the preceding chapters without knowing what solution the previous authors had in mind The authors followed two rules they had to construct their installment with a definite solution in view and they had to deal with all of the difficulties left for consideration in the preceding chapters Each of the writers had to write their solution and deliver it to the pubisher when they handed in their manuscript GK Chesterton s prologue was then written last in order to tie the beginning of the novel to its endingIt s an ingenious idea and it s easy to imagine what fun and what problems the various writers must have had devising their own installment However as a work of fiction it is not in my view entirely successful There are several reasons for this One is that the writers are not all eually skilled Only three of them GK Chesterton Dorothy L Sayers and Agatha Christie would be familiar to modern readers It is probably fair to say that the other contributors are not so well known because their writing is not particularly accomplished Secondly there is a wealth of detail in the novel but little in the way of characterisation Thirdly the plot is simply not that engaging To me the most interesting parts of the book are Sayers introduction and the different solutions envisaged by the authors which are included in the volume after the final chapter This does not make an enthralling mysteryI ve read this book while on holidays generally at the end of a day filled with lots of activity This means that my concentration span has not been what it is usually is This may explain in part my lack of enthusiasm for the novel and my feeling that finishing it was a chore and not something to be wholeheartedly enjoyed However I don t think the circumstances under which I read the book wholly account for what I perceive to be its shortcomings Overall I m glad I read the novel because of its place in the history of British Golden Age crime fiction But I wouldn t recommend it to anyone who is not interested in the genre from a historical perspective

review The Floating Admiral The Floating Admiral Free download ✓ 104 characters º PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook ¸ The Detection Club Victim's niece has disappeared There is clearly to this case than meets the eye – even the identity of the victim is called into doubt Inspector Rudge begins to wonder just how many people have contributed to this extraordinary crime and whether he will ever unravel itIn 19. Members of The Detection Club Dorothy L Sayers GK Chesterton Canon Victor L Whitechurch GDH and M Cole Henry Wade Agatha Christie John Rhode Milward Kennedy Ronald A Knox Freeman Wills Crofts Edgar Jepson Clemence Dane Anthony Berkeley decided to write a mystery novel together each writing one chapter and knowing no about the solution than previous writers had suggested in their own preceding chaptersI think this must have been lots of fun for the Detection Club but it resulted in a rather tiresome experience for this readerIn her introduction Sayers notes that the problem was made to approach as closely as possible to a problem of real detection as a contrast to the ordinary situation of a mystery novelist who knows beforehand who did the jobIt may be the fault of this realism or it may be the fault of novelists who having only one chapter to contribute but a whole novel s worth of clues and shocking revelations in mind failed to restrain themselves Probably both anyway The Floating Admiral is not at all a good novel There are too many characters and too many clues made to seem important by the contributors who planned their own solution to the mystery but sunk back into triviality by later contributors with different solutions It is horribly lacking in Aristotelian unityI almost didn t read this novel at all although my curiosity about Sayers contribution which I think is the best chapter although who knows what I d think if I hadn t know which one she wrote finally drove me to it My initial reluctance came from GK Chesterton s prologue he didn t play the game but wrote this prologue afterwards I began reading The Floating Admiral while reading lunch and had to stop in the second paragraph of Chesterton s prologue because it was ruining my appetiteSomeday I m going to write about GK Chesterton but let me just say for now that racism was part of his metaphysics In this case he chose to write his prologue about a scene from one of the characters history that occurred in China So in this second paragraph there s a flight of very Chestertonian rhetoric about the East and West and how the East is all things opposed to goodness and Christianity and Western I am not uoting because I never want to read that passage again I will say that if you are still interested in reading The Floating Admiral you can skip the entire prologue The only thing it establishes is that the episode in Hong Kong was important and you ll find this out again later I suppose it also had the effect of helping the book sell better because of Chesterton s name among the authors
