How very villainous!

Fingersmith Fingersmith by Sarah Waters

My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Oh my, what deviousness this is! Oh my, how I loved it!

I’ve read a few reviews stating how boring this book was but I never felt that. I didn’t mind that the same scenes were re-discovered in the point of view of a different character, in fact, I loved that. I love getting the opportunity to see how different characters experience the same situation and what their thoughts are.

I went into this blind, I didn’t know there was a mini series, I didn’t know about Tipping the Velvet, I didn’t know anything and it was exciting to find it all out for myself. The twists shocked and pleased me, I loved that lack of predictability. I never knew what was coming next and that was incredible, something that rarely happens in a book for me.

A gripping tale with wonderful character relationships. It is a long one, but I read it in less than a week, so it is an easy read. Very much recommended.
