really liked it

I couldn't put the book down, which is strange, because, if I were to describe it, it would probably sound a bit tedious. Though the main vein of the story sounds/ is exciting in itself (activists targeting groups of 'fortunate' London dwellers), but by the time that part of the novel is concluded at the very end, I wasn't really that bothered by it. I had been drawn into just about all of the tiny/ huge nuances of the personal lives of the characters who were affected (to various degrees) by this activism. So drawn in, in fact, that I was just interested in them for the sake of being interested in them, not necessarily just so I could find out the mysteries behind the activist's identity/ real aims.

I would recommend it, I really enjoyed the alternative style of story-telling here.
