Such a shame,
This review is from: The Resurrectionist (Paperback)
I approached this book with high hopes - it was a R&J recommendation plus I liked the synopsis. Initially I thought the book would fulfill its promise; the writing was stylish and evocative, and there was a sense of danger and malignity pervading the narrative. I soon realised, however, that I wasn't interested in the characters as they hadn't been fleshed out properly, and whilst I don't expect things to be spelt out for me, there was too much left unexplained and the narrative more and more disjointed and obscure. I didn't bother to finish it in the end, which is sad as I believe the author shows promise. I think an earlier review has hit the nail on the head - it should have been twice the length and has probably been butchered by the editor.
