When I commenced reading The Mask of Time I was tempted to put it down. I recommended the book to everyone I knew who was a reader. It surpassed the expectations of everyone I knew. It has a wonderful plot. This book kept me up for 3days and nights,I took it to lunch, the beach, everywhere I went until I finished it. I was sorry when I had finished it. The end of the tale was a little weak, but despite that, this is one book that should have been a blockbuster.

I am a fan of Gabriel as a budget book author. Loved The Ocean Liner and The Designer. When I was half way through this book I thought it was going to be the best yet - until the ending. I have to wonder if he got tired of writing or ran out of ideas and perhaps turned it over to a twelve year old to finish. The end consists of the most incredible, impossible, unlikely and inaccurate events I have ever read. It ruined an otherwise interesting and entertaining read.

Hopping from one time frame and place to another, needs really clever and efficient authorship, otherwise the reader becomes disoriented and confused. Gabriel attempts to do this, but for me it became rather annoying. His publisher could have done a better job in editing , gramatical errors and spelling. This could have been a much more direct and succinct book and shorter, some plot lines went nowhere, and created more confusion. The final was unexpected, again seemingly tacked on without any real sort of "thrill".

Did I read a different version, or is the kindle version different than the print version? I just finished and there was no one in the story named Phillip Westward nor does Anna fall in love with anyone. She conducts the search on her Mother's behalf all on her own. I was at about 90% of the book when I remembered that Anna was supposed to fall in love with someone, so now I'm totally confused after again reading the book description. Can anyone shed some light on this?

What more can you ask for, the interwoven stories of WWII, Nazi's, and past and present love affairs. I found it difficult to put this book down and was unprepared for the ending. This is definitely a book to read again at some time in the future. After I finished it, I spent an hour rereading parts that had suddenly become crystal clear. Mr. Gabriel certainly knows his craft well. Before I started this one, I had read "The Seventh Moon" and was worried I would be disappointed that Mask couldn't possibly be as good, I was wrong. Looking forward to his future work.

I bought this book because it was a bargain and seemed to be the kind of story I enjoy. As I got into it, it really started to grab me. I love books that have a "kicker" in them and this one qualified in spades. Spanning a half a century and travelling from World War II Italy to England and St. Petersburg, Russia and Vail, Colorado it tells a story of family, love and murder while keeping the mystery of why someone would want to kill Kate & her daugher Anna.

If you like a mystery, then this is a great read from beginning to end.

I read this book ages ago, sometime in the mid 90s and it was enthralling. It was one of those books that I couldn't get out of my head after I'd finished and to this day I still think about the captivating storyline. I don't know what happened to my original copy but I ordered another from Amazon because I wanted it for my book collection and I plan to read it again sometime. The ending of the book was a little weak, but the excellence of the story leading up to that point more than makes up for it.
Once again Mr Gabriel has done it. The end was a bit surprising and disappointing, but the story was amazing as all his works are. I have read all of his books now. Once you start his books, it is so hard to put down. Your knowledge of WW11 Times is amazing. waiting for your next one with bated breath!!!
