The Whores' Asylum
Free copy through Waterstones Cardholder scheme.
When I read the summary of this book I was looking forward to reading it based on the fact it had compared to a “Sherlock Holmes” novel.
However I’m not quite sure what to make of this book and struggled to finish it.
This book is set in London in the late nineteenth century and is a mix between love and friendship.
This book is narrated by Edward Fraser who tells the story in five stories that link together. Each story focuses on a different character.
I struggled with a lot of the language throughout this book. The story is quite interesting when it moves between characters however sometimes this became rather confusing. I’m not sure whether I would recommend this book to others.
