Have you read much of his other works?

I found both of his novels to be very similar. Both have this mix of high society posh life. Almost, to make the reader envious but then it's stripped away.

I would say of the two Rules of Civility was my favorite. It has this underlying Gatsby vibe.

Sharon Bloch | 26 comments It's also a very interesting period of time.

Yeah I read that right after reading The Spy, which is about Mata Hari. So all three of these have been the same time period but all three take place on different continents. Very interesting to see the different perspectives!
