"Leave behind the ordinary and join me in the horrific." -Brenda Bailey
on July 22, 2012 :
I liked it a lot. It was written in a very vivid style, describing, people, and places, so well, you could "see" "hear", and "feel" them. It was written with people's actions, or descriptions of their actions, telling a lot about the nature, and way of being, of other people.
I liked the ending, it was the most dignified (um, can't say, cause it is a spoiler) ----ing, that I've read or seen so far.
Only two things bugged me, 1. the Dr's name, multisylable "tripping"/coarse kind of name, and 2. his blue velvet coat, which was odd - to reader & characters, to wear in that setting. A couple of flashbacks to set the drs origins, (is/was he german/polish, slavic, etc, How/when/what time in the past, was he from, how long ago, what was his native homeland/language, how did he end up in this town, in this job, in this time?) would have been nice.
Maybe the author dropped hints, but I missed them.
I personally didn't like, that he took it upon himself to randomly decide whom to "personally attend to", when he could've done so much more. It's kind of really selfish, in my opinion. Some things happened the way they did, only because he, and only he, wanted that particular outcome.
Other than those peeves, it was very engrossing.
It was a nice historical fiction tale.
I also liked that it wasn't a "porno romance", like most "romance" books these days, that really have no real romance, commitment, bonds, dedication, LOVE, etc., just basically the same intimate scenerio (basically describing what hookers do) as in virtually every other "modern" "romance" book these days. This one was NOT like those.
I like "character study" books, books that reveal what the characters, likes, dislikes, motivations, characteristics, ethics, etc are. This book, IS one of those types, and was a memorable read for me.
