Week 8/52: Fingersmith by Sarah Waters

13744623

I chose three 600-page novels in a row. Why?

Sarah Waters is a great English novelist. I highly recommend The Little Stranger (haunted house a la Henry James) & A Night Watch (large cast of characters, WWII London). Fingersmith is a Victorian mystery featuring thievery, switched identities, rouge gentlemen, and mad houses. And somehow is completely believable and engrossing. Oh, so there's a bit of lesbianism too. I didn't quite realize this until I started reading it (hello? should have looked at the cover a little better) so consider yourself informed.
