A Fatal Likeness (2013)
language
English
3.32 of 5 Votes: 5
review 1: Well. I read this all the way through. And kudos to the levels of research done by Shepherd, she worked hard to make this tale breathe. But I found it incredibly depressing. The Percy Shelly/Mary Wollstonecraft Shelly saga never seemed more ugly than as it is portrayed here. ...

review 1: Did not finish. Just... That narrator. The story was interesting, the setting was well-developed... Potential to be a fabulous book and exactly the kind of mystery like to read when I step outside the YA bubble. But I could not cope with that weirdly omniscient and completely con...

language
English

review 1: This distracting busy mash-up of Dickens and Wilkie Collins (published in the UK under the title Tom-All-Alone's) has some of the ingredients for a better novel. Some scenes are vivid but too much of it gives the impression of being hastily written. It needed a firm editor with a...
Crimen en Mansfield Park (2011)
language
English
3.42 of 5 Votes: 5
review 1: An interesting take on a classic. There are elements of Austen that remain but most of Mansfield Park has been imaginatively reworked to turn the former coming of age tale into a murder mystery. The redrawing of Fanny Price is perhaps the biggest change but works perfectly. She w...
