A quick read
on 27 October 2013
Handy for when time is limited - could have led to a longer, more involved story with a bit more substance. I felt that the characters were not fully developed and those few descriptions that we do get are repeated unnecessarily. I felt slightly disappointed at the end as the main female's character was believable, rather like Lady Dedlock in Bleak House, and could have been developed. And did we have to keep having Queen Victoria's picture quite so often - a good idea but overworked, but the Victorian era was never quite evoked.
Would I recommend it? Yes, I think so
