Superb and very very funny. Great story line, wry, erudite and comedic. Loved the curmudgeony, workhorse who is the young (20 going on 40) Turner - so ill at ease amongst the corrupt shannigans of the upper classes. If you liked Andrew Miller's Pure, ...more

A homage to Henry James with bells on, with a smattering of Poe. In equal parts, hilarious, creepy, disturbing and utterly haunting. Best book I've read all year. I give it ten out of five.

Fantastic writing and really hooked me in. Great example of how the landscape of a novel, is also one of the lead characters. Franklin's evocation of Missippi was brilliant but I was disappointed by the ending which was too "Hollywood" for my liking. ...more

Brilliant read because it's not just the story of a murder - and a horrific one at that - but an intelligent, carefully researched and evocative history of Ireland in the C19th. If you are Irish (and hey, today is St Patrick's Day, as I write this) o ...more

OK. I'll fess up. I know Essie so that makes it hard to review but I will say in all honesty, I LOVED this book. The characters leapt off the page and it has a wonderful dynamic verve about it. I raced through this novel in just a few days and some o ...more

Erudite. Impressive. Dry in places but a necessary read for those of us fascinated by the Nineteenth Century. Extraordinary photographers of Crimean battle weary soldiers.
