I am far too human to imagine anything like that smile. Sep 12, Michael rated it really liked it Shelves: The writing is adrew. A beautiful and compelling, but clearly unhinged, sculptress of gargoyles by the name of Marianne Engel appears at the foot of his bed and insists that they were once lovers in medieval Germany. Following his accident the protagonist meets the enigmatic, beautiful, mad-as-a-box-of-frogs Marianne Engel who comes to his bedside with a secret.
The reader is given a wonderful and detailed story but you must choose what you will take away as truth or fantasy. As a debut garola I do believe Davidson did an okay job. For me the ending was thought provoking and perfect.
Still, there were stereotypical details in his background that I found a little too much. We see him slowly gain a soul, thus making the ending of the story all the more heartbreaking. And what if he was actually the one to invite you to be friends? I realized then, for the first time, that I was not hallucinating. Marianne Engel Marianne has lived multiple lives and has fallen in love with her destined mate each time. Being burned was the best thing that ever happened to me because it brought you.
After an evening of snorting coke, he manages to crash his car and nearly burn himself to davidsoon in the process. The book then begins to jump between time periods as Marianne Engel tells her life story which is set in the middle ages along with several other short stories about different tragic lovers.
Last I heard, the girl now adult was a pregnant heroin addict. Marianne Engel is a woman with a mental disorder who is convinced she has been alive for the past years and that she loved the narrator in another life.
I stayed up for many nights as if possessed, and few books have mesmerized me like The Gargoyle. The story touched me just as it does every time and I had to take frequent breaks to let the events sink in and reflect on them.
Advidson swiftly starts to tell him the story of her past life in a medieval monastery. The Gargoyle by Andrew Davidson It is an unforgettable story that shows humans at their best and their worst, one which moves boundlessly over years and numerous lands, including Iceland and Germany. The Gargoyle is an odd, intriguing book, a modern day tale of romance with historical and paranormal elements. I highly recommend this book to anyone looking for an amazing love story that spans time and involves many cultures.
DX60 S2 PDF This book was freaking terrible, and every executive at Doubleday responsible for overhyping it should be ashamed of themselves. And that of course leads us neatly to the next major problem with this book; that much like fellow overhyped trainwreck The HistorianThe Gargoyle is sold as a contemporary supernatural story but is neither contemporary nor supernatural, the modern-day scenes existing only and solely as a framing device for this wacko love interest to tell these giant, rambling stories about their supposed original passionate romance back in the s, with Davidson going out of his way to show that she might just be dwvidson ill and making the entire thing up.
Did he tuck them inside his asshole? View all 13 comments. Sometimes there were pages listing food items! But there were also parts where the author slipped into long, monotonous, detailed description that could have easily been cut. THE GARGOYLE is a multilayered tragedy within a love story and it will affect you on many different levels; horrific, sad davvidson gruesome it is also complex, funny, thought provoking and redeeming.
This Book is Beautiful Beyond Words!!! The Gargoyle The next time they will be happier. Who would have guessed that the monster of fraud was a democracy? I thought okay so an odd storyline when I heard about it. I will never be able to hear about a burn victim again without cringing and thinking back to this book.
