It felt like 25 Shades of Grey. The big "who done it" was pretty obvious. The book picked up speed toward the end, but it really was too late for me. I skipped around a lot.

I'm struggling on what to say in this review. Since the book was over 600 pages, I must say I kept reading thinking surely it would grab me and take me in. Sadly, it never did. I agree with a lot of the other reviews that the characters were flat. I...more

Great book! The ending was sad. I wanted so much more for her. Lots of questions left unanswered, though, in a way that it makes the reader decide for themselves what's real and what isn't.

Sometimes it baffles me when a book gets great reviews and then I read it and can't seem to appreciate it in the same way as others. It was over 400 pages and honestly, I am busy working during the day, so I can only read a chapter or two at night. I...more

The Thirteenth Tale by Diane Setterfield
" Sigh. I really, really wanted to like this book. I heard good things about it, and it has many elements I usually love in a novel: a Victorian sensibility, questions of identity and sisterhood (as well as siblinghood generally), meta-commentary on... " Read more of this review »
