The narrator does a good job here but I found the book wove together too many narratives in too dry a tone for me. at the end, I am neither moved with wonder for the fair nor moved with regard to the terribleness of Holmes. it is a strange feeling, sitting at the end of this book.

Do you have a shred of doubt about buying this audiobook? Please abandon that doubt. The performance is intense and the book sweet and bitter and bittersweet and emotionally vulnerable in ways I wish I had more of.
