Would you try another book from Charlotte Link and/or Catherine Harvey?
Any additional comments?
All characters in this book are weak inept and without personality, the story mirrors these attributes and the narrator made the trifecta of complete disappointment.
A very sad story well written and devised. A real who done it with an extremely long narrative. I would read anothe by this author.

I enjoyed this book and was surprised to discover that it is apparently a translation from the German. It has a very English setting in both time and place. With only a couple of small irks the translation was quite natural and flowed well.
The narration was good, clear and expressive, though the female characters were mostly if a rather similar type, and the narrator struggled to make them different enough to overcome what I think are weaknesses of the text.
This was a rather long tale, long in getting started (so much so that I had to check at first it wasn't a succession of disconnected short stories) and long in coming to an undramatic conclusion that was on the cusp of unbelievability.
The best feature was definitely the book within the book which was more engrossing than the core of the story itself. This was especially well constructed and engaging.
Overall, despite its length and pace it was an enjoyable read and at no point did I feel like putting it down.
