    My Rating 5 starsThis book was read and reviewed for the author.The Pope s Stone is a work of historical fiction by the Author Mark Kuhn I would like to add a special vote of thanks to Monica for recommending the book to me Nathaniel Henry Barrington and Nicholas Henry Barrington have led a similar life although they have lived a century apart The twist and turn of events that they have both encountered in their lifetimes is not just coincidental but terrifically agnate to an extent that its almost impossible to believe that they can be true And the only thing that has them connected is THE POPE S STONE And hence begins the interlinked stories of Nathaniel Henry Barrington and Nicholas Henry Barrington spun in a fantastic manner as only Mark could do write The story begin likes this John Henry Barrington, grandfather of Nathaniel Henry Barrington, 1854, who works as an artisan at the Washington monument was approached by four young men of an active political party to show them the Pope s Stone which w...

    This book took me by surprise I am usually not a Historical Fiction reader, but this book definitely got my attention The story was fantastic and gripping I found that I could not put this read down It took me on a roller coaster of emotions to say the least I found myself than once putting this book down and shaking my head in astonishment or drying my eyes Kuhn did a great job writing a gripping story The end for me was wonderful I liked how it technically was not an end.The characters in this book were so easy to get involved in I found their gentlemanly ways and friendliness addicting Nicholas and Nathaniel were two guys I would have loved to meet I was so swept up in the story and how their lives seemed to correlate The tragedy these two suffered was unbearable I felt so horrible for them I could not imagine the grief they must have experienced Yet, I found that these parts of the book only added to the story This is what captivated me The authors willingness to include his readers in the heart wrenching details of his character s lives I just loved the way the author added a hint of romance in the novel The love they found was warming That is what made the tragic parts all the most heart wrenching The history was intriguing in this book I enjoyed reading the...

    They say everything starts with a cover, so let me begin my review with that The increasing font used for the three words of the title is appropriate it gave emphasis on the stone Judging from the book blurb, one can know that the Stone has an important role in the story However, I think that the Washington monument was featured a bit smaller, thus decreasing its towering height I don t know if there is another reason for its size in the cover other than the slab of Stone and an opened journal are intended to appear bigger and prominent The story began in the 1850s, with the first chapter titled with date and place It was a descriptive introduction fitting to be a foundation of the story The history was established, actions were executed, and conflict was introduced All of these were done in just a single chapter, six pages in all There was brevity and creativity in the author s art of implanting this very first part of the book in the reader s mind It was a nice move, actually My attention was immediately captured by the pace of the story A well described and explained intro can be the make or break of a book and this novel has ...

    Book Adoration is currently hosting a giveaway for a paperback copy of The Pope s Stone and a journal to go along with it Reading The Pope s Stone was a big step out of my comfort zone I rarely read historical fiction There is no reason why I don t read historical fiction much It is just not my type of prefered reading But when Monica who is one of my bloggy friends recommended this book to me with much ethusiasm I decided that I should just dive head first into The Pope s Stone s fascinating story.I don t regret doing so at all.With an introduction that starts with a crime that involves a stone it is not at all hard to get interested in the story of The Pope s Stone And then there are the two following chapters one chapter introducing Nathaniel Henry Barrington and the other introducing Nicholas Henry Barrington The reader soon starts to notice that even though Nathaniel and Nicholas lives are separated by a century, their lives are very similar Every good event, every bad event, and every tragic these two boys both experience The reader must follow the story and find out what is happening.As you can see this novel has a great story Not only was it a great story it was executed well And it was thought provoking I found myself recording all the clues in my head I wanted to f...

    A good friend and my cyber sister Monica of Impressions of a Princess emailed me asking if I could review Mr Marc Kuhn s book I ve never read a single novel on historical fiction before but I decided to give The Pope s Stone a shot And yes, it did not disappoint.One thing I realized while reading the novel is that, even for a first time reader of a historical novel like me, Mr Marc s writing was easy to understand and incredibly fast paced I may have grown a new found love for history after leafing through the first few pages Chapters are dated, making it easier to follow which era you re in It begins with a brief introduction about John Henry Barrington, the Washington Monument construction, how the Pope s Stone got there and why a lot of people were outraged and wanted to destroy it.Chapter 2 dated April 1875, introduces us to Nathaniel Henry Barrington who was celebrating his 14th birthday With his curious mind full of worldly ideas and ponderings , I can relate to this kid at some point His friend, Elizabeth, whom he denies any flings with calling it as a brother sister relationship, gifted him a leather journal for his special day, and on that journal, he intended to record his life experiences On his very first journal entry, He mentioned he was only a year old when his fa...

    Originally posted on my blog, Books Forget Me Knot.Marc Kuhn s debut adult novel, The Pope s Stone, couldn t have been any brilliantly written It is a tale of historical fiction, intricately woven with suspense and mystery Plus, Kuhn is just BRILLIANT The story itself is a masterpiece and only a great writer would be able to pull off a parallel universe character plot.Let me begin with the gist of the novel Nathaniel Henry Barrington and Nicholas Henry Barrington lead a similar life though they live a century apart from one another The sudden twists and turns of events they both have encountered in their life isn t purely coincidental but scary accurate It s hard for it to be possible it s nearly impossible that it can t be true but the only thing that is connecting Nathaniel and Nicolas is the Pope s Stone.The stone was given to America as a gift from Rome towards the construction of the Washington Monument After some deliberation and political strife, John Henry Barrington grandfather of Nathaniel break the stone into pieces and thrust it into the River Potomac But they kept one piece, ensuring it to John for it s safety This begins the journey of the stone being passed from one generation to the next in the Barrington family until it finally settled with Nathaniel.There are countless of similarities between Nathaniel and Nicholas s life throughout the story Slowly, Kuhn reveals similar events that as a reader you could only compare and contrast It s only wh...

    I have to start of by saying that I really enjoyed how the author described the characters, the way it was written made it really easy to follow and understand what they were going through during that time period I really felt deeply for each of the characters and the issues they faced, it was definitely a emotional read Even though they lived a century apart it was really interesting to read how similar their experiences were and how they correlated I also really liked how each character wrote their own journal, it was a great way to truly see how they each felt about their journey.This book took me on a emotional ride, what each of the character went through was truly heartbreaking I found myself holding back my emotions and reminding myself that this was just a book I felt really bad for them and couldn t possibly imagine the grief they endured.Even though I don t read books about history, I found those aspects of the book to be quite interesting The stories that were tied in with the war were really sad to read I liked how it answered some of the questions that I had about Nathaniel and Nicholas family It s tragic but u...

    First, let me start with the cover, because that is the first thing I saw I like the increasing fonts of the title It places a lot of emphasis on the Stone , which I think means something I wonder why there is a journal there Maybe a journal comes into the plot later And it s the Washington Monument in the background Ooh I wonder what it could be doing in the book After this part was written, I started reading the book The next part is my reaction to the book, written after I d finished it This book is so good The plot is wonderfully written, the characters are believable, and it is just generally awesome, OK I have no words No words It s historical fiction, but don t think of it as one of those super slow moving books that gather dust on your shelves It moves fast, so you shouldn t get bored with it, and it doesn t move too fast And th...

    I have got to say I don t like historical fictions It s not like I have had a bad experience reading the likes of it before But I tend to link history with the word boring , probably because of my boring history classes from school However, imagine my surprise when I found The Pope s Stone, an American historical novel, to be anything but boring It was my good friend, Monica of Impressions of a Princess who brought my attention to this book The summary caught my fancy immediately It s not the usual kind of plot Two people keeping identical journals and leading identical parallel lives but yet having lived a century apart is definitely intriguing I was introduced right into the heart of the story but it never was too soon or too slow The book moves back and forth between the journal entries of Nathaniel from the mid late 18th century and Nicholas from mid late 19th century Sometimes, I don t quite like the jumping from time to time part however, in this book, everything has a well denoted year to it, so it never was confusing.The lives of Nathaniel and Nicholas are very well described There were many profoundly touching and moving scenes described throughout the book Also, one question propelled me quickly through the pages and that was, how exactly does The Pope s stone fit into these two people s lives I lik...
