Very Interesting Premise Interesting Characters Historically Well Written But the ending and the relationships between the characters were a bit disappointing to meThere were parts of this novel that I really enjoyed the author is clearly talented He creates vivid images some memorable characters and moves the story along at a brisk pace It was only in the fleshing out of the emotional relationships between his characters that I found myself wanting for James Dyer cannot feel pain can not empathize with others pain When James is very young he leaves his home and travels with Marley Gummer duping country folk into buying what they don t need and what won t help them He eventually becomes a successful surgeon never distracted by his own emotions or those of his patients He travels to Russia and meets the Empress Catherine and a woman who changes him Mary is rud to be a witch and James changes after he meets her he suddenly feels disappointment pain suffering and loveFor the most part I thought it was well done interesting and an enjoyable read but it wasn t the most satisfying read I wished happiness for James and I would have liked greater insight into the relationship between James and Mary It reminded me of other dark stories A Prayer For the Dying by Stuart O Nan Asylum by Patrick McGrath and House of Sight and Shadow by Nicholas Griffin There is a certain similar flavor among those novels If you liked any of those you might like this as well
