Interesting but a bit slow in places,
This review is from: The Library Paradox (Hardcover)
I don't normally like murder mysteries set in other historical periods. However the first few pages seemed good so I gave it a go. Overall I enjoyed it with a few reservations. I disliked the long passages of theory for example, pages on mathematical theory-it wasn't necessary to understand them to follow the plot. Also lots about the Hassidic sect of Judaism. In both cases a bit of knowledge was very interesting but the author went too far. (Which of them is the subject she studies I wonder)I also question whether young unmarried women of the time would have been allowed to share a flat together in the way 2 of the characters do.
Still it kept me interested to the end and I will look out for her other books.
