This was another charity shop find. It came from the same charity shop as Marked actually. I liked it a lot the first time I read it. I still like it but I have to admit that, from a critical standpoint, it’s not the best.
Here’s an excerpt:
I must say, the nineteenth century characters proved a lot more interesting than the modern day ones. For instance, Michael Wilde feels more like an everyman and a blank slate than anything though he does start out promising. He is a photographer with a girlfriend in a coma due to a hiking accident, drawn out of his depression and (not unjustified) self-blaming by an assignment in the Antarctic.’
