Thanks Miles. I look forward to your review of Bleak House. Sarah — An excellent review and it does sound like a solid take on the original. As you say, it can hamper the reader. At the same time, it does give one insight into the characters and so on. Thanks Margot. An interesting choice of book, Sarah.

Hardback Editions

I really enjoyed your review. I have read Bleak House a couple of times but like you I have problems with the Esther-Jarndyce plot, esp the way he builds her the house at the end, etc. I do like some of the other characters, though, particularly the Deadlocks. This was an early example of a crime novel, too, with Inspector Bucket. But I like lots of his other books, too. A brilliant and sinister re-make of Bleak House, exposing the vicious underworld of Victorian London.

Your Life is Your life: Go all the way - Charles Bukowski

Totally gripping. John Carey A necessary eye for squalor, meticulous research and deft plotting, as well as the ability to handle the difficult God's-eye-view narration with aplomb The Guardian It s a highly compelling, immaculately written 19th-century murder mystery. Independent on Sunday A grisly period detective story with a light-hearted literary conceit The Times Beautifully written..

Shepherd has perfectly caught the tone of voice, ranging from the lawyer Tulkinghorn to Esther Summerson and Inspector Bucket, and describes the horrors of nineteenth century slums more candidly than any Victorian novelist ever could This terrific Victorian mystery begins in dense fog, like Bleak House, and has an unemployed detective reluctantly obeying a summons to the rat-infested London churchyard of Tom-All-Alone's.

The Solitary House

The corpse of a newborn baby awaits him, marking the start of a case whose Dickensian horros are twinned with a sophisticated understanding of nature of sexual predation. Joan Smith The Sunday Times a gripping thriller. This is very much a crime novel, with some very nasty crimes indeed, but it's also a witty, literate entertainment that lets the reader play Spot-the-Reference. Andrew Taylor The Spectator There has recently been a rash of crime novels that are sequels or adaptations of classic fiction, mostly leaving long-dead authors turning in their graves.

Tom-All-Alone's (Charles Maddox, book 2) by Lynn Shepherd

Shepherd's ingenious riff on Dickens's Bleak House is an exception, a clever and playful mystery stuffed with references to the works of several eminent Victorians. Tom-All-Alone's is a dark and gripping Victorian murder mystery, immersing the reader in a grim London underworld. Convert currency. Add to Basket. Compare all 8 new copies.
