Constantinople However Timothy saw through her guise from the very beginning His plans for Theodora were great indeed but before she could become his instrument of change the actress dancer and whore had to learn humilityTheodora was sent into the desert where food and drink were scarce and her clothes rough and simply made To learn about God they sent Theodora into the wilderness for forty days

has taken this historical figure and brought her vividly to life Theodora s life was no doubt filled with incredible highs and lows In her time a woman who had no money property or family connections had to make her own way It was difficult and some never survived this trialTheodora however was a woman of strong spirit outspoken in an age when women were Soulsmith (Soulsmith Trilogy, expected to be biddable and subject to the whims of men Invery sense of the word she was a rare modern woman I thoroughly The Strength of a Gamma (Pack Discipline enjoyed Ms Duffy snthralling story and congratulate her on bringing Theodora to life for all of her readers I have learned much in this novel and have a new appreciation of what it must have been like to be a woman in ancient times I loved the sound of this book from the moment I heard about it and was thrilled to find it in paperback when I was in Sydney arlier in the year With such nthusiasm of course I had to read it right away but I don t think it was due to high xpectations that I finished it feeling largely untouched Theodora is the fictionalised account of an historical figure Theodora who grew up a child actress and therefore prostitute in Constantinople in the sixth century a period commonly known as Byzantine Rome or the Byzantine Empire a continuation of the Roman Empire founded in Constantinople Istanbul the capital of modern day Turkey by the Emperor Constantine he who is famous for converting to Christianity and giving that previously heathen religion legitimacy Theodora in Stella Duffy s story is a talented actress not classically beautiful but sensual and with an ambitious heart After she and her two sisters Comito and Anastasia are sold to the theatre at a young age following the death of their bear taming father she is trained in the arts of singing dancing acrobatics and other performing arts and at twelve is sold to a man for the first time an inescapable fate for these actresses who because they are whores are not allowed to marryAt seventeen Theodora meets Hecebolus a young handsome and ambitious man assigned the post of Governor of the Pentapolis five cities at the northern tip of Africa west of Alexandria Invited to go with him as consort never wife Theodora doesn t need much persuading despite the advice of her friends in the theatre She s determined to find someone high up in the church who can absolve her of her past and allow her to marry high up and for that she needs to be in a high position herself She takes with her a friend and minor actress as lady s maid and companion Chrysomallo who had little stage presence but a beautiful singing voice and beauty to match It s only a matter of time before Hecebolus and Chrys become lovers forcing Theodora to strike out

Whats the Worst That Could Happen? engage my imagination or my sympathies very well and while this book was fiction like many novels that deal with people who were once alive and breathing it suffers from a kind of biographical noose Clearly authors take artistic licence with their subject matter they have to and there s nothing wrong with that But the way they tell the story the structure and style of the narrative has a distinctly biographical flavour to it It could be the omniscient narrator that creates that particular distance or maybe the habit of telling rather than showing that s prevalent in such stories I ve randomly picked a passage as anxampleThings were much harder for Anastasia As Theodora said their little sister was simply too sweet Two sweet to work half a dozen men a week and take their money willingly using it to further herself to lift herself out of the brothel that was her backstage life and into a nice little apartment with a sea view and just one or two regular suitors Instead she d fallen in love with a pallid Lycian boy from the stables keeping them both poor by turning down offers so often that in the The Clave Matrix end the offers ceased to come and she and the stable boy lived on what little they couldarn from legitimate work p58There s nothing wrong with the writing the grammar or structure or pacing I just don t care for the style I felt constantly at a distance the whole way through and while I admired Theodora as a strong intelligent woman I never came to care for her And I wanted to I was fascinated by this historical period this world and I wanted to delve into it and into Theodora s imagined life But it s a novel of omniscient narration interrupted by neat lively dialogue and it lacked a distinctive voice Theodora s voice

E lines picking up on subtle hints and themes deducing and analysing and so on Duffy didn t leave me anything to do here and that really disappointed me Very poor I kept on reading it as I xpected with all the number of Sosyolojiler Değil Sosyoloji excellent reviews it received it was bound to get better it didn t Indeed it got and ridiculous I should have been warned when one of the reviews called Theodora as a wise cracking tart with a heart Actually the I think about this book the crap it was Interesting look at a woman not often mentioned in the history pages Stella Duffy doesn t hold back and I respect that she didn t make Theodora seem too perfect but a strong woman in her own right I am looking forward to reading the seuel I thoroughlynjoyed Ms Duffy s Hyvät pahat pojat enthralling story and congratulate her on bringing Theodora to life for all of her readers This is a book about a historical figure but also about strength The strength of women the strength of the poor the strength of history I have learned much in this novel and newly appreciate what it must have been like to be a woman in ancient times This is the story of Theodora and her rise from dancerprostitute to Empress of Rome The book starts with Theodora working on stage at the Hippodrome and being trained by Menander a man she feared and loved After becoming famous she falls in love with Hecebolus and moves to Africa with him When Hecebolus casts her off for another she flees Africa and finds her way to Alexandria where she finds her faith looks for forgiveness for her sins and puts her fate in the hands of Timothy who she respects Timothy helps her to find her way to Justinian who is preparing to become the next Emporer of RomeI reallynjoyed this book Theodora is a fascinating character to read about there are so many different facets to her personality At times she is selfish 45 starsI m trying to think of a way to describe this book and immensely satisfying is the only descriptor that s coming to mind That seems so weak though Satisfying implies just okayness but Theodora was anything but just okayI think what feels so satisfying about this novel is the realization that fine craftsmanship is still alive and well within historical fiction Since the success of The Other Boleyn Girl the general tone of HF has taken a bit of a nose dive as and authors and publishers strive to replicate that same success Rather than telling a story that feels true and real it seems to me that so many have just attempted to put the features of TOBG into whatever historical setting they happen to have on their plate The result has been near consistent disappointment with almost immocation – Die Do-it-yourself-Rente every historical novel I ve read for YEARSat least from larger publishers who seem to be caught up in this frantic race to find the next TOBG rather than trying to find the next good historical novel Of course this isn t the case for all books I ve read since TOBG It s just hard to recall that sometimes when the market is so flooded with so many copies of the same old same oldSo I am very much satisfied and gratified and very happy to know that at least Stella Duffy is out there putting her all into her OWN really good historical novel And this one is really good and it really feels like it s hersIt was such annjoyment for me that I actually don t know where to start in talking about it One of the things I just loved loved loved was the uniueness of the lower class characters voices The actresses whores animal trainers and teacher A Scattering of Jades eunuchs were remarkably real feeling and this was achieved with the PERFECT balance of modern day four letter words and turns of phrases worked very sparingly and deliberately against carefully constructed sets of detail and character motivations voices and dialogue that felt otherwisentirely a part of 500 CE Constantinople As I write HF myself I know what a really remarkable feat this is to make not only individual characters but The Obsession (The Blair Witch Files, Case File 8) evenntire strata of society feel so vibrant and true Duffy s great care and forethought in the construction of her world not only the place and time but also the society was Euphemism Dysphemism evident and something a fellow writer appreciates and applaudsThe plot itself was perfectly paced It opens superbly right in the midst of young Theodora s already rich personality and the main character s motives and actions feel authentic and logical given the person she is For those who know the real history real history in air uotes as who knows what Procopius s problem was all the best moments of the true Theodora tales are there brought to vivid breathtaking life for the reader Some moments were heartbreaking some were laugh out loud funny I cracked up on the treadmill at the gym over Theodora giving her performance of Leda and the SwanZeus O God hahahah Many moments surprisedven for somebody who has a fairly good familiarity with the historical accounts of Theodora and JustinianSpeaking of which where gaps xisted in the historical accounts Duffy did a spectacular job of bridging those gaps with *plausible scenes richly detailed and well xecuted which linked of bridging those gaps with *plausible scenes richly detailed and well xecuted which linked known bits of history with stronger and stronger chains as Duffy *scenes richly detailed and well xecuted which linked the known bits of history with stronger and stronger chains as Duffy skill with character and atmosphere took overIt was a truly fantastic book beautiful and rich with superb character work and unforgettable voice My only regret in reading it is that I was planning my own take on the Theodora story to be written a couple of years in the future and I had been tinkering with the idea of using a certain totally fictional plot device that Duffy already beat me to Nuts I ll have to come up with something Outlaw Platoon else I can t begrudge such a good author the theft of my idea years before I thought of it of course because her book was such a pleasure to readThis book was SO CLOSE to being a 5 for me pretty rare in my historical fiction reads as I am just as hard nosed about setting and accuracy as any other big time HF fan and I would have joyfully given it five but for the occasional turn of phrase that pushed the anachronismnvelope just a bit too far and plucked me out of the story But I was only out for a heartbeat and then I was right back in again This one was first published in 2010 if I remember correctly right at the beginning of the tidal wave of bizarre linguistic discrepancies that has washed over and swamped recent historical fiction What is UP with publishers doing this to HF I can only assume it s publishers calling for a beachier voice again the influence of TOBG because it s very difficult to imagine that Stella Duffy s otherwise gorgeous prose and careful attention to maintaining proper historical detail and atmosphere would allow for the infiltration of such modern language on its own without the influence of a publisher who s panicking over an The Cinderella Plan ever diminishing share of the market How do you get readers Appeal to a wider audience goes the common thinking and I guess a wider audience isn t capable of handling real feeling historical dialogue without the occasional okay thrown in Oh publishers SMH Anyway the rare breach of modern voice wasn t really that bad It certainly wasn t the most confusingly modernized HF I ve read It wasn tven the most modernized fiction about Theodora I ve readI noted on Stella Duffy s GR author page that HBO has optioned her Theodora novels to potentially produce as a mini series YAY I hope they do as I ve loved HBO s handling of A Song of Ice and Fire also a series for which I am way too fannish and super nitpicky It would be a real pleasure to see the same team or a similar one bring this book to life on filmI am downloading the seuel The Purple Shroud at this moment and will gleefully carry it off to the gym as soon as I click Save on this review so I can continue Life of Ordinary Woman Pa experiencing Duffy s fantastic artfully portrayed near perfect depiction of Constantinople and its amazing AugustaBuy it and read it Interestingnough premise but awkward writing a bit stuffy and bloated While I was reading I was História, História engagednough but Jonah the Inside Story every time I put it down I couldn t find the motivation to pick it back up
