A Spectacle of Corruption

A Spectacle of Corruption by David Liss
Historical Fiction


Most liked Character: Benjamin Weaver
He was great. The way he disguised himself and the way he involved other people in his quests of finding out what went on was very interesting

Most Disliked Character: Griffin Melbury
Miriam's new husband who uses everyone he can. What a dispicable character!

Best Part of the Book: The ending
It was wonderful how Weaver 'got' Dogsmill. That was very clever

Worst Part of the Book: the descriptions of the animal abuse
My stomach is not strong enough to read about these

What was missing: Miriam's story
What the heck happened to her. I thought she was more independent. No explanation of her change of character was forthcoming

Rating:

(4 /5)

Hey Susan! Nice to see you over here too! We were feeling left out of the book blogging goodness. Just wait till I review a management book I'm reading for my organizational behaviour class *cackle*
