Life got in the way and it took me months to finish it. I remember flying through the first 200 pages and then it became a slog.

This book sounded so so good. Tried reading the book,listening to the audio version,-nothing worked for me. Maybe it‘s my mood, attention span, time- whatever. Just not for me right now, so back to the library it goes!

I suppose someone who takes Dickens a lot less seriously than I do might enjoy this cozy, sentimental novel around the holidays. I thought it was lame. It didn‘t start out too badly, but as soon as Mrs. Dickens left London with the kids it went downhill and got progressively dumber. I skimmed toward the end and then read the end, to see if it finished well. It didn‘t. 👎🏻

Map of Grosvenor Square,an “ultra-respectable”area of London.Victorian era murder of Lord William Russel, uncle to Queen Victoria‘s Secretary of State for the Colonies, occurred here.The inside flap poses the question of the day: “Can a novel kill?”Cannot wait to dive into the well researched non fiction account of this murder/scandal.

”Harman combines a riveting whodunit with a literary scandal that involved the most famous writers of the day.”

like the present period, that some of its nosiest authorities insisted on its being received, for good or for evil, in the superlative degree of comparison only.

Now this is my kind of “beach” read! A true crime story from early Victorian England that weaves in the likes of literary big wigs such as Dickens, Thackeray, and Poe (!!). This story of a murdered, decapitated minor aristocrat is a real page turner. I highly recommend this book to fans of true crime, 19th century literature, and biographical history. ☠️🔪
