    Difficult to read

    I could not finish this book. There is no punctuation to indicate dialogue, yet a lot of dialogue occurs. Within a single paragragh more than one character speaks, but it is darned near impossible to read through without having to back up to know who said what.

    Enveloping and Consuming

    This is an astonishingly well-written story with many unique characters all pursuing their particular path, each developing their own personal integrity in their own way. Somehow their paths keep intertwining - either directly or peripherally and that is where the story becomes consuming. At times the feeling of foreboding I experienced was so intense I wasn't sure if I could keep on. I'm glad I did. While there are no bright bows wrapping this novel up, in the end it was a reflection - by gaslight - of the realities of the times and places in the story and the people who lived in those times and places. An excellent read and one I would definitely recommend to anyone who is interested in seeing that good and bad are never all good or all bad.

    Cannot wait to read it

    Comments writen by choyce22 make me like to read it! Those long dialogues techniques were used by 1998 Nobel laureate José Saramago in his novel Blindness.

    Interesting

    A dark, twisting story reflected in the grimy fog of Victorian London. Interesting historical links, but difficult characters and a very long read.
