Review by jayne_charles
When it comes to bringing social taboos to the masses, this book does a pretty good job – very readable, full of interesting characters...but some readers might find themselves put off by the way the plot unfolds. It’s hard to say more without leaving spoilers - I guess you just have to try it and see. I thought it was a pretty good story – though I often wished the central characters were more likeable. The narrator’s sister in particular I found rather bossy and bumptious. On the other hand, the terminally smug Shillingworth family were brilliantly portrayed and a pleasure to hate throughout.
