Although it contains some beautiful language this is a consistently dark grey depressing story about very unhappy people. There are no characters to be admired.
None- thats the problem with the book.
Shame on all the English teachers who hold this up as one of the best novels ever written.
If you liked the original Sherlock Holmes you will probably like this book. Its very faithful in plot line, tone and style.
I was drawn to this book by the basic premise but it turned out to not deliver. It had a poor plot, repetitive action and two dimensional characters. Nothing of interest is done with the historical figures who show up in minor rolls.
This book seemed to leave out much of what I wanted to know and repeat other details over and over again. Never the less I will try out some of the ideas and see if they help my business.
Some odd vocal habits.
His talk about leading the good life.
Comelling, interesting , and well researched
