Book Review From The Guardian Of Fingersmith By Sarah Waters

A Dickensian gothic melodrama and lesbian romance, Fingersmith by Sarah Waters is a superb page-turning work of popular literature, replete with high tension, restrained eroticism and sudden twists and turns like a Wilkie Collins novel. The atmosphere of the squalor of Victorian London, the horror of the 19th century madhouse and the isolated mansion in the countryside is conveyed brilliantly and the characters, especially the two young narrators, Sue and Maud are so vivid you are almost inside their heads. An absolute must for lovers of historical crime fiction, gaslight romance and dark Victoriana. 

For a more in-depth review read Julie Myerson in The Guardian here
