Read from October 30 to 31, 2011
If you've read The Crimson Petal....this is a "Must Read"! Michel Faber goes some way to explain his reasons for the ending of The Crimson Petal in the foreword and shares some of the indignant emails and letters that he received from readers. However, he doesn't apologise for this, but leaves the reader with further mysteries to solve.
It doesn't pretend to answer all the questions that The Crimson Petal leaves the reader with, but takes you deeper and further into some of the characters. I loved it, it inevitably still leaves you wanting more, just because of his narrative and the way the stories unfold. It is a collection of short stories, but each of them linked in someway to The Crimson Petal.
Set time aside and read in one sitting....it's that good!
