Meaning of Night: A Confession
Meaning of Night: A Confession | Michael Cox
"After killing the red-haired man, I took myself off to Quinn's for an oyster supper." So begins the "enthralling" (Booklist, starred review) and "ingenious" (Boston Globe) story of Edward Glyver, booklover, scholar, and murderer. As a young boy, Glyver always believed he was destined for greatness. A chance discovery convinces him that he was right: greatness does await him, along with immense wealth and influence. Overwhelmed by his discovery, he will stop at nothing to win back a prize that he knows is rightfully his.Glyver's path to reclaim his prize leads him from the depths of Victorian London, with its foggy streets, brothels, and opium dens, to Evenwood, one of England's most beautiful and enchanting country houses, and finally to a consuming love for the beautiful but enigmatic Emily Carteret. His is a story of betrayal and treachery, of death and delusion, of ruthless obsession and ambition. And at every turn, driving Glyver irresistibly onward, is his deadly rival: the poet-criminal Phoebus Rainsford Daunt.The Meaning of Night is an enthralling novel that will captivate readers right up to its final thrilling revelation.

First person narrator to the nth degree: as he‘s carefully plotting the demise of his arch nemesis. I feel like I‘ve read this book before...but that won‘t stop me from reading it again! #litsyreads #uncannyoctober @RealLifeReading

Thank you @Amandajoy for my #cupidgoespostal goodies!! I love them!! The Meaning of Night is new to me and sounds wonderful. Sharp Objects has been on my radar for a while. My sister just passed her copy of Dark Places to me last weekend. I am so excited to read some of your favorites. Oh and dark chocolate is the best! Thanks @BookishMarginalia I had so much fun with this exchange. Happy Valentines Day!

BookishMarginalia That chocolate looks scrumptious-- I love that brand! 3y
Amandajoy Yay! I hope you enjoy them, happy reading! 3y

I don't know what attracted me to this novel, but it was a great read. Slowly you learn the secrets, and find yourself invested, unable to imagine what happens next. At one point, I yelled out, NO! You will know what I mean when you get there.
