One of the worst-written books I’ve ever read all the way through. Clumsy, adverb-burdened prose riddled with high-falutin’ malapropisms, a sloppy potluck of affected historicisms with bald anachronism, and not even a compelling mystery plot. But I had to keep reading just to watch the train wreck unfold.
