    I found this book to be a huge disappointment Edric creates fascinating characters but nothing happens Seriouslythe entire book consists primarily of self conscious conversations which supposedly teem with all sorts of unspoken meaning but which change nothingIn addition for me at least the novel failed to evoke the Victorian period in any real way The protagonist could have been living pretty much anywhere at any time Rarely do I fault an
