I am terrible for adding books to my wishlist on a whim, then later wondering what about them led me to add them; the plot? the author? the narrator? the cover?. Mostly I find the reason, one of the aforementioned, and mostly, but not always, I will stick with my whim and download the book. Rarely have I regretted books chosen in this way. In this case it was one of a large number of books narrated by William Dufris, then I homed in on the plot etc, and downloaded it. Not my usual choice of subject matter and so on, but had I not been looking for something 'different'? Yes I had, and yes indeed, in this novel I found that something 'different', very different! I was yearning. You can read the plot synoposis elsewhere. All I will say is that this book is very unusual, slightly Dickensian, very Gothic, very atmospheric, slightly surreal and a little scary in parts, but turned out to be an excellent and very satisfying listen from start to finish. Anyone looking for something a bit unusual? You won't be disappointed. The narration is just wonderful.

Loved the story! Plot was particularly well thought out and offered a number of suprises. The mood too was well articulated, fog and unease. But most of the characters were a bit one dimensional. I loved them as they were all quirky and strange but I did not believe in them for a minute! They needed a back story to make them real. This is one of those books that should have been longer with more time invested in fleshing out the cast. Still, a good romp!

An entertaining novel with interesting twists. It made a long drive go quickly. I found no valuable take-always to make it a five star read. It was nice.
