Review: The Butchered Man

The Butchered Man The Butchered Man by Harriet Smart
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Not the best of books, but good non the less.

I cannot say that I loved the book. The story was nice and the characters were good, but I somehow expected more. I don't know if it is because of the title of the book, but I expected something more like Jack the Ripper, and it was more like Barnaby living in the time of Sherlock.

Probably the only thing that kept me reading was my curiosity. That and the fact that the language of the book was impeccable. I am in awe to Harriet Smart for the way she wrote the book. That beautiful language, the way the characters talked and thought. It made me believe in the story and it made me believe I was really there, listening to them.

That was ingenious!
