This book is marketed as a mystery novel but to me, the mystery was only secondary. The story revolves more around the young Lady Georgiana: her attempts to become independent and make ends meet in the big city, her unique family, friends, acquaintances, love interests etc. The mystery in itself is pretty basic but still entertaining enough to keep you interested.
The style stroke me as very reminiscent of PG Wodehouse's because of the flamboyant characters and the humour that is ever present all throughout the novel. The narrator does an excellent job; listening to her was a real pleasure. Highly recommended.
The story is quite intriguing and each character is thoroughly developped. I did not find it one bit boring.
James Yaegashi's narration of the main character was good enough and I liked the fact that he can actually pronounce Japanese terms and names. However, he ticked me off the moment he started impersonating female characters. He made them sound meek, cheesy and clingy. Considering that the most important characters in that book are women, I found that really annoying.
