The Meaning of Night - Michael Cox


Overblown, obsessively re-created Victorian melodrama is not necessarily a bad thing, and the alarming amount of research that went into this does pay off in terms of vividness and colour. It's unfortunate that the character development and plotting weren't given the same amount of attention, and some potentially fascinating psychological twists were allowed to drop. But certainly a good escapist read.
Why are so many modern bestsellers called 'The X of X'?
