It´s impossible to say something about the story of Fingersmith without spoiling it and a lot of my enjoyment in reading this book came from not knowing anything about the story. So let me just say that there are a lot of awesome twist and turns throughout the book, which kept me on the edge of my seat, and I really liked the Victorian setting and atmosphere of this book.
But there is just something about Sarah Waters storytelling that keeps me from ardently falling in love with her writing. So far I have read two Sarah Waters novels, The Little Stranger and Fingersmith, and with both books I felt the ending to be a huge letdown.
I had some issues with this book, but it is well worth the read. I´m still waiting for the perfect Sarah Waters book, though.
