No sense of lyric in the language Did not care for the characters. Similar subject is “ the Rules of Civility “. Much better book
Surprise was not a surprise.
The author is brilliant, and the story hooked me for most of the book, however i wasn’t thrilled with the last third of the book.
I enjoyed it, extremely well written,
It’s not until the last chapters that the book becomes worth it. You’re better off with Edith Wharton or Henry James, which have more psychological depth, as the premise in this book is not that sophisticated. It is however nicely written and beautifully read.
