The Gilded Chamber 0 14 303533 9I cannot help but echo the reviewers who compared this to Falconer s The Sultan s Harem The similarities are there a young woman plucked out of her happy familiar life in order to sexually service a demanding despot whilst simultaneously fighting tooth and nail against the other fortunate girls for a favored position in this unfavorable environment But here is where Falconer shines and Kohn fades the reaction of the girl in uestion to her circumstancesFalconer s Hurrem smolders with hatred and revenge she hates the sultan who bought her she hates the women she is forced to compete with she hates the country that treats her as chattel to be bought and sold The fact that she exacts revenge is secondary to the vital fact that she desires revenge Kohn s Esther on the other hand is placid and sugar sweet pitying the women who seek to displace her Esther s position is never in peril because the author does not allow it to be and it s a shame because it would be nice to see her reaction to someone who actually threatened to supplant her However her character hints that she really wouldn t care one way or another and even goes so far as to fall in love with the tyrant who kidnapped her I m not sure what we are to make of this Xerxes is shown in the novel as a despot He is cruel to his women even going to far as to brutally rape and seriously hurt one of Esther s close friends in the harem He is a drunken lout despised by his own courtiers He denies Esther anything which makes her happy monitoring her eating habits and demanding that she spend less time with an adopted daughter in order to focus on making a legitimate heir It is understandable that Esther would want to placate this dangerous entity but there is nothing here to love We do not despise Esther for her compliance but we do despise her for her capitulation for loving this man who brutalizes her and everything she loves because it pleases him to be cruelI can only guess why Kohn made this authorial decision but I suspect that the love angle was written in to ensure that a certain segment of the target audience wouldn t be offended there are I suppose certain people who would call Esther s integrity into uestion if she sleeps with a man she doesn t love For whatever reason however I believe that this decision hurt the novel badly Instead of an interesting tale of Esther s ingenuity in surviving thriving and insinuating herself into a place to save her people we are given a love lorn woman who regularly laments that the man she loves is just too stupid cruel evil and awful to be the man she deserves Thus is a very interesting story reduced to just a bland romance novel Ana Mardoll Superheroes intrigue and unfathomable hatreds and realizes that the only way to surv.

Free download The Gilded Chamber A Novel of ueen Esther 107 Ive is to win the heart of its king Passionate suspenseful and historically authentic The Gilded Chamber illuminates the dilemma of a woman torn between her heart and her sense of duty resulting in pure narrative enchantment. This behind the scenes glimpse of an emancipated royal concubine is one undergirded in Orientalist romanticism It completely reifies the 2 300 yr old Western stereotype of exotic harem behavior I nearly threw up when the author described homosexual activity within the harem not because I didn t enjoy the visuals but because it was SO PREDICTABLE I would hesitate to compare The Guilded Chamber to The Red Tent just because the main character is Jewish woman and the story is told from a female perspective The writing was simplistic at best and the plot was trite Esther s excessive musings over her late mother and her estranged cousin husband and the all too obvious foreshadowing ruined the storyline for me I dreaded reading the book until the last 100 pages or so when a few interesting characters were finally introducedIf you ve read the Red Tent and The Guided Chamber and are interested in other readings about Jewish woman in historically based yet fanciful settings may I suggest Flowers in the Blood by Guy Couter It s a fantastic story and is very well written Pontius Pilate Saint Ronan of Brittany Th�ophile is to win the heart of Black Friday its king Passionate suspenseful and historically authentic The Gilded Chamber The Urantia Book in pure narrative enchantment.
