"Weirdly, there is a first person narrator, but we barely know anything about her. All the narration is about other people. So far, there is no plot (not necessarily a bad thing, but I'm not hooked emotionally, either)." Jul 21, 2018 12:09PM

""The Final Problem" — I know this isn't a perfect story, but damn if it isn't a case study in how to kill off the character who made you rich and famous. He does Holmes justice. The tone and style of this story are markedly different from what's come before. A great piece of writing. 5/5 stars

The Alienist by Caleb Carr
"The Alienist was a very satisfying read and just exactly what I needed at the moment - a book to catch and keep my attention till the end. It's like Mindhunter on sniffing tobacco, so what's not to like!
OK, not really a sniffing tobacco, this was..." Read more of this review »

August 2018: Still super fun. Full re-read review later.

May 2014: This is the most fun I've had while reading a book all year. I've loved and been affected by other books more deeply, but in terms of how gleeful a book has made me feel, this one wins

Neil Gaiman
“Most books on witchcraft will tell you that witches work naked. This is because most books on witchcraft were written by men.”

Lemony Snicket
“People aren't either wicked or noble. They're like chef's salads, with good things and bad things chopped and mixed together in a vinaigrette of confusion and conflict.”

Oscar Wilde
“Those who find ugly meanings in beautiful things are corrupt without being charming. This is a fault. Those who find beautiful meanings in beautiful things are the cultivated. For these there is hope. They are the elect to whom beautiful things mean only Beauty. There is no such thing as a moral or an immoral book. Books are well written, or badly written. That is all.”
Oscar Wilde, The Picture of Dorian Gray
