Fun to read (despite the heavy subject manner), with vivid characterization and historical realism. I'd been told this story was told "backward," and thought it might be hard to follow, but it's not at all, and it makes for an interesting puzzle to try to figure out how these characters first met. I've now read all of Sarah Waters' books; sometimes I feel like all my other reading is just marking time until her next novel appears.
