A huge and wonderful book written in beautiful literary prose. As much fantasy as alternate history of the 1800's. Not a quick read, a book to be savored over a longer span. I tried to read it once a few years ago and didn't make it all the way through. I'm so glad I gave it another chance. Listening to the audiobook was great. It needs to be heard in a British accent. I would recommend it for people who like fantasy and history especially things written in or about the time period, such as Jane Austen.
