    One thought on “Windswept House”

    1. This book is poorly written no doubt However it reads fast It keeps the reader interested The subject matter is the stuff of best seller caliber I suppose Martin is really the Vatican insider that he is often thought of to be which tempts the curiosity of his novels concerning the actual facts For whatever strange reason I have a lingering affection for the old world plus modernity plus American Catholicism that Martin represents The Fulton Sheen kind of Catholicism that believes that the Sheen [...]

    2. I would rate it 4 stars for the premise and the historical content of the story, even though presented as fiction Unfortunately the writing is cliched and it moves at a snail s pace which is how I could barely finish the book it also involved flipping some pages to get through many over blown descriptions and scenes This book badly needed editing to shorten it and move the story along much better Also, the characters didn t grip me at alleveryone was too typecast.

    3. Chilling Martin claimed this novel was 80 per cent true Sorting out the fact from the fiction isn t easy but there is still very much to be gained from this novel I have about this book in my review here corjesusacratissimum 2009

    4. I really enjoyed this and I am not even Catholic Historical fiction thriller, very well done I didn t care for the ending but lived up to the hype.

    5. Martin Malachi s writings, whether fictional or fact , appear to come from a very disturbed mind Perhaps, as he claims elsewhere, this book is only 20% fiction How does he know the deep workings of his church He seems to be in the grip of a conspiracy theory so profound that it skews, without shortening, the meanderings on these pages Where was his editor Perhaps importantly, where was the psychological help he appeared to need I found this book appalling, and I m not a Catholic The picture he [...]

    6. I just could not finish this book, which rarely happens There were too many levels of intrigue, too many names, the charachters were superficial in the extremity of their beliefs liberal evil superconservative good The author said in an interview that 85% of this book was true If that is the case, the Catholic Church has been infested with either evil or well intentioned enemies Set in the pontificate of JPII and knowing where the Church is today, the premise of the book that Satanists were tryi [...]

    7. I forced myself to make it through the book I agree with others that it was in dire need of editing The introduction is exciting and then it doesn t pick up again till about page 300 On the positive side it has everything from devil worshipers, masons, to murder The end leaves you hanging but there was suppose to be a sequel since Fr.Martin died prior to finishing the sequel well never know the popes decision In a nutshell the book is about a small group of evil priest, bishops, and cardinals th [...]

    8. Fascinating with a well developed plot The ending let s you decide what happens and is subject to each persons perspective One can argue, the Pope is still surrounded by plotters and conspirators and will be for the foreseeable future The Church needs good, honest priests and laity to remain true.

    9. Perhaps than a little over the top for some people, but Father Martin spun a good yarn Moreover, people whom I know who are in the know say that Martin admitted that 85% of the book is true.

    10. I have to admit I was expecting from this book It was good from the aspect of mystery and intrigue but I felt the ending was of a cliff hanger for part two than an ending that ties up loose ends Glad I finished it but probably wouldn t recommend as a must read.

    11. A great work of Catholic fictionbut at least loosely based on real facts and real people The end left the reader hanging, but upon further review, this is the type of book for which a less satisfying ending makes some sense I ve read this book in its entirety four times.

    12. It took me longer to read because I started it at a bad time Liked the book but not satisfied with the ending.

    13. Invaluable for insight into how the Vatican acctually works The writing style is to be slogged through rather than smoithly flowing But the subject matter compensates for it.

    14. A long winded read but the gist of the story is compelling Fr.Malachi Martin died not long after threatening to reveal the high ranking cardinals involved in satanic worship

    15. My expectations were surpassed by the drama describing the evil rituals in the Vatican A must read for those who study history can see the truth will out always.
