Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well-written This is, without a doubt, the most beautifully worded book I have read in a long time. The English language is truly a spectacular thing.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Classic While I didn't fully enjoy this novel, it still is very good. It was a bit hard to read at some parts, but that's to be expected from a Victorian novel. Otherwise, the story itself was good, I just wish it hadn't been as long as it was. #plumreview
