it was amazing

A pair of novellas set in Victorian England, one focused on the new theories of Mr Darwin, the other centering around the then-strong craze for spiritualism. But in both cases, though the stories are rich in detail and digression (both scientific and poetic), the real treats are the characters. Almost without exception, both stories are peopled by individuals who in true Victorian fashion reveal little and have, even by the end, uncharted depths.
