Overview

Hide Me Among the Graves: A Novel by Tim Powers

From Last Call to On Stranger Tides to Declare to Three Days to Never, any book by the inimitable Tim Powers is a wonder. With Hide Me Among the Graves, it’s possible that the uniquely ingenious Powers has surpassed even himself. A breathtaking historical thriller in which art and the supernatural collide, Hide Me Among the Graves transports readers back to mid-19th century London and features a reformed ex-prostitute, a veterinarian, and the vampire ghost of Lord Byron’s onetime physician, uncle to poet Christina Rossetti and her brother, the painter Dante Gabriel Rossetti. A novel that, like all his others, is virtually impossible to pidgeonhole—or to resist—Hide Me Among the Graves is the taut, gripping, and utterly remarkable literary thrill ride that Tim Powers fans have been eagerly waiting for.

I enjoyed this book as an escapist read. The character plots jumped around a bit, so I had to really pay attention to make sure I understood who we were talking about and what the situation was, but I felt sympathy for the characters, particularly John Crawford, who seems brought into everything kicking and screaming. I never appreciate it when someone does something for another person's "own good," because it's really themselves they are helping and I saw that in the character of Adelaide McKee. I was also rooting for Johanna and thought she was a strongly writte character. The Rosettis were largely just annoying, as I felt they were responsible for almost everything that happened to them through their own foolish choices. As I said, I did like this book. It's the type I would read in-between more serious novels.

Amazing! When first starting this book I was a little uncertain about whether I should continue reading. But when I did, I was absolutely hooked. Tim Powers is a great author who really got me interested in the commonness of ghosts and how people deal with that. I did feel a little resentful towards Christina for making such an unwise decision, but my anger was soon lost when the action came in. The storyline was interesting with such a large conflict. The characters all had stories of their own, and I especially loved Trelawny. He was such a rude but clever old man who did lots of bad earlier in his life but did feel remorse for his actions. He was kind to Johanna (somewhat) and Christina. Most of the characters in this book were real people and Tim Powers got all the dates right on their deaths and births. It was an interesting spin on real figures in the past.I also noticed that every major event in the book would happen after a rest period of 7 years. Odd, but still an enthralling and action-packed book. I loved the story and Powers' writing. Do read this book!
