really liked it

Can't believe I didn't like this one when I first tried it back in Dec of 2011. Must have been the time of year and I was just done. Once I got pulled into the story it was hard to put down. It was dark and gritty and gave insight into New York in the 1890s. Recommended.

Aneeqah Seriously? I have it checked out from the library right now! What didn't you like?


Kathy I thought it was boring.The language was a hindrance. I can see myself reading it later when I have more time to get into it though.

Aneeqah I still think I may give it a try, just to see how it is.
