This is a melodramatic story of the type popular in the 19th and very early 20th century. As such, there are many passages which exist for no other reason than to increase the melodrama. Meanwhile, all but the dullest reader knows, almost from the beginning, how it will end and who Marco and his father truly are.

Yet, it is an interesting and entertaining read. Quite different from most of today's novels. In fact, I don't believe the word 'sex' was ever mentioned, let alone described in a superficial scene totally unrelated to the book's plot, as is so common in many of today's New York Times "best sellers."
