This multifaceted story combines myth, religion, magic, clashing cultures, and a deep understanding of human nature – all set in the turn of the 20th century New York.
The characters are solid and interesting (though I’ll admit I didn’t quite fall in love with any of them), each with their individual nature and small peculiarities; and their conflicts – minor and major - come very naturally from who they are.
I usually have a good sense of where the story is going, but with this story I was delighted to find I had no idea what’s going to happen next, or how everything is going to resolve itself in the end. I thoroughly enjoyed the audio performance, too!
I heard 10 chapter out of 34, and couldn't go on.
The story is thin and uninteresting, the characters completely 2 dimensional, just 100% soap-opera cliche. The so called "mysteries" are almost non-existent. The whole "story" seems to only exist as a feeble excuse for writing about the one thing that IS taken care of in the book: clothing. If you like reading lengthy descriptions of shopping and getting dressed, by all means, get this book. If not, stay away. There's nothing else of value here.
