The Crimson Petal and The White

Finished reading The Crimson Petal and The White about two/three weeks ago now.  It was good but not fabulous.  I thought the setting of Victorian London was very well evoked and the characters were fascinating but, in my opinion, what let it down was the pace.  There were whole chapters where almost nothing happened.  Yes, the pace did pick up a bit at the end but then it needed to.  I still enjoyed it though.  **** four star review.
