The Winter Queen - Boris Akunin


I forgot to review this, which isn't a very good sign. More literature in translation, more bumbling young heroes, a bit of adventure, a bit of violence, an afterthought of romance - and an ending out of character with the rest of the story in its deliberate intention to shock. Perhaps it should have swapped endings with 'The Shadow of the Wind'. A good yarn, though. Why do translations always have such bad punctuation?
