As a fan of the rest of Tracy Chevalier's books, I was a little disappointed when I started reading this. It didn't grab my attention the way her other books did. It did pick up a little at the end and I stayed up late to finish it, but overall I was a little disappointed.

This was a slow start but stick with it. Not like other Chevalier books at all... the story was a little flat until the end.

I have read all of Tracy Chevalier's books. This one didn't measure up to the others. The story line was weak, chaotic and rambling at times. It could hve been so much more interesting. If you like period novels ,that take place in 19th century London, you will probably still enjoy this. She gives great discriptions of foggy old London and the poverty & misery that existed at that time. I just did not find as good and riviting as her other books. The ending was strange. I felt like she had a deadline to meet and just gave up on it. Too bad. This book had so much potential.

This is Chevalier's new book about the London of William Blake. It has its interesting moments, but I didn't like it as well as "Girl with a Pearl Earring"--the characters aren't quite as dynamic s those in her first novel. Nevertheless, I learned a lot about the period of time and the geography of London. I just wished for more Blake and less of the villains in the circus@
