I was very disappointed in this book. The story was very boring the narrator was very boring. Maybe he didn't have a chance with the writing to make it seem more exciting than it was. However it was a waste of time.
This was a twisted, unresolved, tedious, limp imitation of Jane Eyre. Calling it a 'novel of the Revolution' was both a stretch, and hugely disrespectful. The picture on the front cover is the best part of the story. I wish there had been a way to split the star or make it a 'minus star'.
