    One thought on “Three Fates”

    1. This was a pleasant surprise! I've not heard much about this book and read it because it was selected for a group read. It involves a mythology surrounding three small statues, the Fates, and the search to find all of them and reunite them. It begins in Ireland with the Sullivan family and reaches across the globe, culminating in New York.I loved everything about the story, from the characters (didn't love all of them at first), to the mythology itself, the romances and the mystery/suspense. It [...]

    2. ''Fate isn't black or white, right or left. People aren't just plopped down and made to follow one route in life on the whims of the gods. If that were true, we'd have to say Hitler was only a victim of his own destiny, and therefore blameless We have decisions to make, actions to take, good ones and bad ones that make up the texture of our lives. Everything we do or don't do matters Everything counts at the end of the day we have a pattern to make. We have to see it through, try to find a wa [...]

    3. Ahhhwhat to say about this utterly brilliant book? There are many, but I'll try to keep it shortThe "New Age" Nora is no way even close to the her older works. It's sad to think the younger generation will brush this great author off after reading her recent novels and will miss out on her greatness. I really think it's going to be rare in a couple of years that anyone under the age of 25 will even consider picking up something like "Three Fates" to just pass the time. (Sorrydidn't mean to get i [...]

    4. yes, i can't believe I am confessing, but I have read nora roberts. If you are going to read trash, you might as well make it her:-)

    5. The three fates of Greek mythology, Clotho, Lachesis, and Atropos. United, they hold the fate of the human life in their hands—one spins the thread of life, the other measures it, the third cuts it.Yet their statues have been separated for ages. One was stolen, only to be saved by being lost forever at the bottom of the ocean, and two were passed on through generation. Yet the thread continues to spin, waiting to be measured, and cut. Waiting for the three Fates to reunite once again.It will t [...]

    6. Nora Roberts já escreveu mais de 150 romances em pouco mais de vinte anos, tendo grande parte deles feito parte da lista de bestsellers do New York Times e ganho vários prémios literários. Considerada um fenómeno de vendas na literatura feminina, a autora tem conquistado as suas leitoras ao longo da sua carreira com histórias apaixonantes, sagas familiares ou mistérios que podem ou não conter um fantasma ancestral. Sejam quais forem os contornos que as suas histórias tenham, muitas veze [...]

    7. A few years after the sinking of the Titanic, the passengers aboard the Lusitania have no fear of sinking - and no knowledge that they are about to caught in the crossfire of war. On board the doomed ship, Henry Wyley is thinking about who he is going to track down once landing on the other side of the Atlantic: a man who may know about Lachesis, the second Fate. He already has the first, Clotho, secreted away in his stateroom. Or, at least, he did . . . until thief Felix Greenfield lifts the pr [...]

    8. This novel was gifted to me by my father, who is ninety. He can’t get enough of Roberts. Indeed. The blurb on the jacket says: “Nora Roberts is indisputably the most celebrated and beloved women’s fiction writer today.” The Three Fates refers to Greek mythology, which my father used to read to me before I could read myself. I have fond memories of that. And so I began and then I quit, after reading 417 pages. I was 7/8ths of the way through the story and had had enough. I knew how it wou [...]

    9. *O* Hermoso!!!! Otra extraordinaria novela romántica donde Nora Roberts no me defrauda. Ha sido genial. Me ha hecho reir, llorar, ponerme nerviosa y enternecerme. La trama me gusto mucho; estuvo bien desarollada, fue interesante, atrayente y rápida. Además de divertida. Los protagonistas principales y secundarios son algo que no han hecho más que mejorarla. Aquí he tenido 6 protas y todos me han encantado. Han sido 3 relaciones bien estructuradas, que han tenido su tiempo y desarrollo adecu [...]

    10. This book was recommended to me by my bff (Tina). It was hard for me to get into this book because it was kinda slow in the begining but I was told by my bff (Tina), multiple times to keep going. She was right! I really enjoyed this read and will definitely recommend it.It starts with a thief named Felix Greenfield who is aboard the Lusitania. He enters the room of Henry W. Wyley and steals a little silver statue moments before the ship goes down. While on a mission to save only himself, he ends [...]

    11. Nora Roberts is one of my all time favorites and I really enjoyed Three Fates. If you like a little history and little whimsical fantasy this book hits it on all marks. The story revolves around the descedants of the three families that once possessed one of three connecting statues of the Fates. The three Sullivan siblings race to recover the Fates from the evil Anita, a ruthless woman obsessed with recovering them. This book has it all, a bit of history, humor, romance and the power of love. T [...]

    12. Although I've read a few of her books, I usually avoid Roberts' work just because she writes more of the type of books my mother likes to read (romance, romantic mysteries, etc). My mother was the one to gift me this book, actually. However, I've hung on to this one for a while just because it was so excellently crafted. Great historical detail, interesting characters, a bit of a mystical twistYes, it has a predictable romance wound throughout, but it wasn't as cloying as other books of hers tha [...]

    13. The first and only Nora Roberts book I have ever read. A friend of mine who is a addict for this author was trying to explain what makes them all so good. I was just curious since the woman must never sleep since she seems to put out a new book like every 6-8 months. Anyways my friend recommended this one since it revolves around (I say that extremely loosely) Greek mythology and some nautical history. All in all, as expected the facts weren't all there but it was actually pretty entertaining. I [...]

    14. Me costó un par de días engancharme. Más que nada porque el romance es aburrido. No hay una pareja que me atraiga en particual. La mayoría me desagradaron al principio (Cleo, Malachi) y aunque mejoran no les veo mucha gracia. Quizás me hubiera gustado leer más sobre Gideon y Cleo porque su relación parece más "pasional" pero desilusiona, todos deciden casarse muy rápido. ¿Qué tiene de malo el cochino concubinato?

    15. I really enjoyed this story with lots of action that moved right along. I especially liked that it had three romances each with their own conflict and resolution all during a complex endeavor searching for treasure. Siblings Malachi, Gideon and Rebecca are trying to obtain three small statues and each person takes a different path.

    16. bir nora klasiğiudi eğlencelidialoglar ve tahminj edilemez olaylarla dolu harika bir kitaptı yan karakterlri bile ana karakter gibiydi bir çok farkılı yaşam okudum :D kesinlikle tavsiye ederim :D

    17. I stopped reading this book at page 288/467.At first I was really enjoying this book. The story started out in 1915 on the RMS Lusitania. The future characters and plot were setup on the ship(wreck), before the main story jumped to then modern day 2002. The main characters started out okay, but as the story dragged on the betrayals, backstabbing, and bickering became overwhelming and I just could not take it anymore. I thought if I took some time away from the book that I could finish it, but al [...]

    18. There, for those who have made the request, I have now read a Nora Roberts book. And I don't have to ever read another. This was trite and ridiculous and had really nothing to do with the Fates.

    19. The Fates were a triad, each with a specific task. Clotho spun the thread of life, Lachesis measured it, & Atropos cut it. Without the spinning of the thread, there would be noting to measure and cut so it was important they remain together. They were considered the most powerful and honored of gods. Henry Wyley had the 1st Fate and a line on the 3rd. He was on his way to Ireland on board the Lusitania in 1915 when a German U-boat torpedoed it. The boat went down after Felix Greenfield had e [...]

    20. This was another quite enjoyable book from the prolific pen of Nora Roberts. I liked the historical aspects she included of the sinking of the Lusitania and a little bit of Greek mythology. There was plenty of intrigue, adventure, danger and, of course, romance.I do have to mention something that bugged me a bit about this book and others I've read from Ms. Roberts. One of the trademarks in many of her books seems to be--three impossibly gorgeous, sexy women and three impossibly handsome, rugged [...]

    21. It's generally a good bet that whenever you're heading into a Nora Roberts storyline with an ensemble cast, a good amount of the story is going to be devoted to who's going to pair off with whom. Three Fates is no exception, even though it's a single novel as opposed to a trilogy starring her interconnected characters.This time around the story hinges on a trio of statues, the Three Fates, named after the beings from Greek mythology. The statues have been separated over the centuries, and much e [...]

    22. I was pleasantly surprised by some elements of this book, less impressed by others. It was the first Nora Roberts book I've read, and pretty much my introduction to the romance genre as well. I was glad to see that the plot did not revolve around the romance, but was more of an adventure story. Six people get involved in a treasure hunt/chase for three mythical statues known as the Three Fates. Of course, a lot of the coincidences in the book are a little too convenient for some readers. Even th [...]

    23. SYNOPSIS: Malachi, Gideon and Rebecca Sullivan are siblings with a mission. They are the owners of a small silver figurine, one of a trio of figurines that, apart are merely valuable, together are priceless. The Sullivans had a dream of reuniting the pieces. However a miscalculation on their part, resulted in the theft of their own figurine by an unscrupulous and greedy antiques dealer. It becomes a race against time and a battle of wits between the Sullivans and the very dangerous Anita Gaye to [...]

    24. "I spin the thread, but you make it what you will.I mark the length, but you use the time.I cut the thread, for nothing should last forever.Don't waste what you're given""We can't escape fate, but we can do a great deal to carve our own mark in it, to turn it to our advantage, or disadvantage."In this mythological romance by Nora Roberts we follow the journey of three small priceless statues as they haphazardly pass through history and certain families lives and shows us that everything is conne [...]

    25. More like 3,5 stars for me, and I need a week to finish this, despite my busy schedule and this book really thick!Honestly I more love Nora's other pen name book, J.D.Robb's In Death series, well at last she have a to-die-for-and-no-one-can-beat-him-in-my-heart hero, no need to tell what his name. (what, you don't know him? Alright, he is Roarke, *cough2*)Based on her heritage from Ireland, so in this book Nora Roberts back to her patterns, to make Irish characters and live at Ireland, there are [...]

    26. 3 ½ stars. Not as engaging as I’d like but nice enough. Kept my interest.Three people meet and fall in love with three others, which makes six for the group trying to locate three antique silver statues. A bad guy and thugs are the main enemy. An elaborate plan is set in place. There is some fun girl bonding among the three women.I loved one scene where shy, nervous, hypochondriac Tia was planting bugs in the bad guy’s store. Bad guy confronts her. Tia is fumbling and nervous, but decides t [...]

    27. Stars: 5 / 5Recommendation: A perfect meld of the brighter - mythology, adventure and romance - and darker - stealing, fraud and murder - shades in this plot that revolves around three pairs and their ancestors all connected around three silver statues, The Three Fates.Three Fates is a stand-alone treasure hunt - romance novel by Nora Roberts first published in April of 2002. The story-plot is ties two plots from history and mythology - Sinking of RMS Lusitania in 1915 bringing in the historical [...]

    28. Warning *spoilers* in this reviewI read this book in danish, and my guess is, that it was really well translated from american to danish by Lene Schiøtt, because I loved it - all 416 pages. First - I was thrilled that the beginning was about the sinking of Lusitania, I had just read Dead Wake and i loved it. Second - the author is a brilliant writer. I was in the best company from the beginning to the end, not being able to guess what was coming next. Third - this author is now to blame that I [...]
