Chimney Sweeper's Boy
When I read the quotes on the cover of this book like: "gripping", "ingeniously constructed mystery" and "impossible to put down"... I believed them and thought I was in for another great mystery from Barbara Vine! Alas, I was disappointed as I halfheartedly made my way through this book.
I found it hard to relate to any of the characters and had no empathy for them. The "mystery" of the plot was hardly compelling and I nearly gave up on the book halfway through.
I did finish and I admit that by the end I could appreciate the story and the characters a bit more, but my overall feeling for this book is one of detachment and disappointment.
