50.57% "I'd forgotten just how inventive this book is, how much is going on; the references to things in the backstory which could easily make a novel in themselves. And I do love the language. I know some people have found it a bit overblown, but the sometimes almost verbose narrative style is so evocative of a Dickensian setting, and blends rather than jars with the more down-to-earth, and sometimes obscene, dialogue."
