This is the generation of fantastical fiction preceding Tolkien. It has something of the macabre creativity of Edgar Allen Poe, but a dark, richly English attachment to the structure of stone, the history of aristocracy, and madness and eccentricity and gloom and despair.

Real twisting and turning story, very much a classic.

Yes! this slightly turgid, clumsy tome is saved time and time again by that twisted form of Steerpike!
Sadly the other players struggle to capture the main ground,which is a shame as Gerttie Groan and Titus really could have caught the reader as did the aforesaid 'dark charlatan'.
The other players seemed to undergo inconsistent character transformations; not unlike the 'vegetables' in that evergreen series (on R4) 'The Archers' which at times seems totally incongruous to the spine of the book which didn't really knit well to form a direction....
Not sure whether to read Titus alone?
Steerpike's loss leaves a gaping hole for the foreseeable futre

This item was bought as a birthday gift. It was complete and has been read so I presume it was okay.
