Tante

(4.5 stars; 3 reviews)

It is a common trend, up until this very day, to reveal the difficult side of being a great artist. Madame Okraska is no different. Great artists are, sometimes, very complicated. Sometimes the price of success is too high, for them and for those around them. Would Madame Okraska and her adopted daughter be able to pay it? Do they have to? Do children have to do everything in order to keep their parents happy, even when their own happiness and bliss is just around the corner? Tante deals with these questions and more. It is a brilliant psychological thriller, right between the psychological thrillers written by Anthony Trollope and Mary Elizabeth Braddon and those written in the 20th century. This book was in the top ten list of best sellers of 1912. (Summary by Stav Nisser.) (16 hr 54 min)

Reviews

(3.5 stars)

Good social history showing twists of relationships. Some of the American lady readers seem to be in such a hurry though, to get through the sentence and on to the next with barely a pause or signal of intonation. The last reader read the sentence The end of Tante as if it were part of the preceding sentence, the final sentence of the book . An arrest so sudden which spoilt the sense of the ending
