it was amazing
bookshelves: beautifully-written, victorian-london, tragic, post-modern, religion, morality

I loved this book! Really well written - love the post modern approach to the narrative - gave me some closure after wading through this for some months. Never got boring though. Would recommend if you're really interested in some grimy Victorian-ness from a fictional perspective.

Philippa Collier Ooh.
Let me know what this is like!

Mrs Mallott Well, it weighs an absolute ton for starters. It's written in an interesting way - like the narrator is actively guiding you through the book! you really feel immersed in victorian london. it's very detailed though so i'm only reading it when i can concentrate on it properly!!! Will keep you updated :)
