    ePUB casinotalk.pro ↠ The Confabulist eBook ↠ confabulist epub, The Confabulist eBookI'm very conflicted about this book on one hand it had a very intriguing plot based on who Harry Houdini was and what all he possibly had done The book focusses on Harry Houdini and Martin Strauss whose lives intersect with regularity and a tad bit of magical realism The story structure has several flashbacks and flashforwards so as to say this can be uite confusing for any reader to keep track ofOverall I would say this book is a decent story which doesn't uite match up to the blurb and what it tries to aim for Ultimately it's a 3 12 star book
