This is the story of Dr North, who falls hopelessly in love with a lady, Philippa, and vows to save and protect her when she commits a crime That is basically it, to saywould probably be to let slip spoilers.This was an okay read It was full of melodramatic language and seemingly angst ridden characters and was a little too flowery for me It was written around 1880 and then republished in 1930, but I have to say that it didn t really do much for me I found myself falling asleep whe This is the story of Dr North, who falls hopelessly in love with a lady, Philippa, and vows to save and protect her when she commits a crime That is basically it, to saywould probably be to let slip spoilers.This was an okay read It was full of melodramatic language and seemingly angst ridden characters and was a little too flowery for me It was written around 1880 and then republished in 1930, but I have to say that it didn t really do much for me I found myself falling asleep when I picked it up, and just sat down and finished by skim reading the last 50 pages.Also, the ending I predicted having read the first five pages Fabulous Victorian melodrama, great fun to read. very good classic crime novel When I began reading Dark Days, I found myself struggling to not throw the book in frustration from dealing with such a pining narrator However, as I continued I must admit that the story grew on me and I was much invested by the end If you don t mind a book that leans heavily on the belief in women s hysteria, then this should be a dramatic, enjoyable read I also much appreciated Much Darker Days, the satire version included at the end of this edition If I had to give the whole experience o When I began reading Dark Days, I found myself struggling to not throw the book in frustration from dealing with such a pining narrator However, as I continued I must admit that the story grew on me and I was much invested by the end If you don t mind a book that leans heavily on the belief in women s hysteria, then this should be a dramatic, enjoyable read I also much appreciated Much Darker Days, the satire version included at the end of this edition If I had to give the whole experience one word, it would be amusing 3 and a half stars.I preferred the first story to the second parody one The first story is about Dr North trying to help the lady he loves He thinks she has committed a murder and he tries to save her by fleeing the country.I liked the writing style, but felt a bit let down by the ending It felt rushed. Liked Dark Days Very much reminiscent of Wilkie Collins Disliked the parody For my full review click on the link below For my full review click on the link below
