    This novel for me all pastiche pasteboard and mirrors really irritated me principally because I could have read two good novels in the time it took me to wade through it For a start it’s way too long It’s not like Waters is serving up any profound insights into human nature or casting her eye over a wide panorama of human life It’s es

    Wow What a remarkably compelling and atmospheric gothic tale A real treat for lovers of this genre or for readers who enjoy well written historical fiction with vivid and interesting characters and an errie sense of time and place This is what 5 Stars books are made of for me I loved this book and can’t believe I hadn

    A tricky book to review partly because it didn't live up to my possibly unfairly high hopes and partly because I'm trying to write shorter punchier reviews but this was almost 600 pages long I have failedGreat ExpectationsWaters is

    Pigeons and pearls Perceptions and palpability I’d explain in detail but that would spoil all the fun Instead as elliptically as I can I’ll hint at their relevance with vague allusions Sue was an orphan in Victorian London raised among thieves Despite the fact that in the hierarchy of larceny her lot were nev

    It seems that Fingersmith is one of those books that people want to read but are not doing it for some reason I say this because I have 30 friends that added the title on their TBR shelf I was also one of them as I've bought the paperback two years ago and I only convinced myself to read it now I do not regret finally taking the plunge and I

    455 stars I don't like to use this word but this book was definitely a mind fuck I went into it not knowing much about it other than that Sarah Waters has written it a lot of people have recommended it and I had previously read Tipping the Velvet by Sarah Waters so I wanted to read by her I LOVE that I didn't know what was coming because that made the reading experience so much intense I was in awe at several points i

E érotiue Héritière moderne de Dickens mais aussi de Sapho et des Libertins Sarah Waters nous offre une vision clandestine de l'Angleterre victorienne un envers du décor où les héroïnes de mariages secrets en amours interdites ne se conduisent jamais comme on l'attendrait Un roman décadent et virtuose. It seems that Fingersmith is one of those books that people want to read but are not doing it for some reason I say this because I have 30 friends that added the title on their TBR shelf I was also one of them as I ve bought the paperback two years ago and I only convinced myself to read it now I do not regret finally taking the plunge and I recommend my friends to go ahead and do the same because it is worth it If the size is a deterrent than I can tell you that it does not feel like a 500 pages door stopper Fingersmith is a novel that is strongly based on its plot so I will not say too much about it here Susan Tinder is an orphan raised by Ms Sucksby in Victorian London house of schemers and thieves One of the regular visitors to the house Gentleman makes Sue an offer she cannot refuse She is asked to help him relieve a young woman Maud of her fortune The young woman lives in a Gothic secluded manor together with his strange uncle Gentleman secured a temporary job with the uncle and the plan is for Sue to become Maud s maid help the thief seduce the young woman into marriage and after the fortune was secured to lock her in a mental hospital Do expect some crazy plot twists some of them uite preposterous The book is structured in three parts the first and last one narrated from Sue s POV and the middle one from Maud s Sarah Waters is a wonderful storyteller and she manages to perfectly recreate the atmosphere of Victorian London There is a bit of Dickens feel to this novel which drawn me even into the adventures of the two young women After reading this book I feel once again grateful that I live in this era and in a country where women have eual rights The thought that women could have been sent to a mental institution by their husbands if they did not behave feels so scary and unbelievable to me I read something similar in another book so this detail was probably not part of the author s imagination It was almost a 5 star for me but something was missing Maybe some of the plot twists were a bit inconceivable maybe the story was a bit melodramatic Worth reading nevertheless

Fingersmith

Londres 1862 A la veille de ses dix huit ans Sue Trinder l'orpheline de Lant Street le uartier des voleurs et des receleurs se voit proposer par un élégant surnommé Gentleman d'escrouer une riche héritière Orpheline elle aussi cette dernière est élevée dans un lugubre manoir par son oncle collectionne. This novel for me all pastiche pasteboard and mirrors really irritated me principally because I could have read two good novels in the time it took me to wade through it For a start it s way too long It s not like Waters is serving up any profound insights into human nature or casting her eye over a wide panorama of human life It s essentially a novel that traffics in pastiche plagiarism and is built on two startling plot twists and as such tailor made for the screen Waters overwrites every single scene always telling us far too much always throwing yet wood on the fire which has the effect of continually tipping the emotional register close to melodrama Whenever a character is in the grip of an emotion it s like an entire orchestra strikes up operatic music The dialogue is often ham Victorian slapstick even the BBC couldn t rectify this She also endlessly repeats herself Doesn t help that to enable the plot twist she has to write the entire first part again from another perspective This is often the problem with plot twists they stifle all the blood out of the characters they reduce characters to devices The plot of this novel straitjackets all the characters The men are pantomime villains They have no inner life Are simply wheeled on and off stage when reuired The women aren t much better They have to do what the plot reuires them to do There s never a sense that their natural feeling is creating the plot Suspension of disbelief is impossible So much in this novel is preposterous that it s as far fetched as Harry Potter except this isn t a fantasy novel It uotes or pastiches most of popular Victorian literature Most notably The Woman in White But also of course Dickens and George Eliot Casaubon the ogre of the library is here compiling an inventory of pornographic literature On a good note it did make me again appreciate the brilliance of Dickens who could do great plot twists without sacrificing character development
