This is one of those difficult novels that are interesting and well-written but where one just does not *like* any of the characters. They are either hopelessly stupid, egocentric or both. Based on a true divorce scandal in Victorian London, involving a well-known feminist, the author has put a lot of research into this book. Her characterization is good, I just wish they all weren't so despicable and/or pathetic.
