The Interpretation of Murder. In 1909, Sigmund Freud, accompanied by his then disciple Carl Jung, made his one and only visit to the United States, to deliver a series of lectures on psychoanalysis at Clark University, in Worcester, Massachusetts. The honorary doctoral degree that Clark awarded him was the first public recognition Freud had ever received for his work. Despite the great success of this visit, Freud always spoke, in later years, as if some trauma had befallen him in the United States. The Interpretation of Murder leads readers from the salons of Gramercy Park, through secret passages, to Chinatown-even far below the currents of the East River where laborers are building the Manhattan Bridge. As Freud fends off a mysterious conspiracy to destroy him, Younger is drawn into an equally thrilling adventure that takes him deep into the subterfuges of the human mind. Richly satisfying, elegantly crafted, The Interpretation of Murder marks the debut of a brilliant, spectacularly entertaining new storyteller.

The Interpretation of Murder book.

***COURTESY OF TWOBEARS BOOKS*** A Novel, based on true events. In 1909, as the world went modern, a great genius paid his only visit to American shores. Sigmund Freud-whose ideas about behavior, sex and psychology had sparked fierce debate-came to New York to accept an honorary degree. Little of what happened on this trip is known, but after he left the country, Freud refused ever to return to the United States. For the rest of his life, he would refer to Americans as "savages." Since then, many have wondered what befell him on his journey to turn-of the century Manhattan.

The constant shifts of New York City scenes (real and fictional), numerous characters (real and fictional), and myriad details of New York history (real and fictional), together with theories of Hamlet and the Oedipus complex leave the reader exhausted, bored, and distracted from the purported mystery—a much too complex, convoluted, and far-fetched plot with an unsatisfying conclusion. The author has a talent for connecting disparate elements of history and personality, but in the words of Jung, "one has to ask oneself whether a little less talent might not have been better."

That was just fun to read! A quick page-turner, with several segments to give one something to contemplate. I imagine if one knows little about Freud, his friends, and Carl Jung (no longer a friend in the end), this can be a real eye-opener regarding concepts of psycho-analysis. Although it was made clear that this is largely fiction, the weaving of story and history can become a little convoluted. I found it to be fun, with that little twist at the end that makes one laugh. And a bit spooky here and there. If this is a first novel, as in fiction, I would suggest that Jed Rubenfeld continue amusing and teaching the public! I particularly enjoyed the descriptions of life, clothing, behind-the-scenes looks and discussions within the time-period. A fun read. Negative: I feel that there is something missing but cannot put my finger on it.

I had read this book before and enjoyed it. It is a complex blend of murder mystery and biography, real people being interspersed with fictional characters. Very clever. I particularly liked the descriptions of New York at that time, the mix of horse and car traffic. the building of the skyscrapers and bridges, all fascinating. It is a book that has many levels, and all of them are enjoyable.

The mystery in this story is a little convoluted. In an effort to make it challenging the author puts in several plot twists at the end that had me going back to the beginning of the book. However, I still enjoy mysteries like this one mostly because you learn a little about the early history of psychoanalysis and the history of New York. The author inserts several real life events, including one that seems very unlikely but did actually happen, and ties them together in a plausible way. It's not a great mystery but it is very good historical fiction. If you like mysteries where the mystery is simply an excuse to learn about some academic topic you'll like this.

I really enjoyed this one. Very nice plot. A fascinating way of building a crime story using psychoanalysis and the pesonalities of Freud and Young as building material. I considered the collaboration of an analyst and a police officer ingenious. However, though i understood and comprehended the involvement of Freud in the central story, i couldn't understand that of Young's. In this particular detail, i did not find the plot as solid as i think it should be.

A very good historical novel, set in the New York of the gilded age.

Based on Freud's visit to the US in 1909, the author weaves a thriller out of murder, jealousy, insanity, love, and psychoanalysis.

It is very well paced, and keeps you turning the pages.

I give it only 4 stars because, at times, the multiplicity of the story lines can get a little confusing, but the author pulls it off well.

If you liked "The Alienist" or "The Good Mother" give this one a try.

When I bought this, I didn't realize it was a prequel to a book I read previously & enjoyed immensely, The Death Instinct. As the other, this was well-paced, suspenseful, packed with brilliant pieces of real history, and deftly woven with true events.

Great product and seller
