    One thought on “Seeking Hyde”

    1. This is historical fiction that sticks very close to reality It focuses on Robert Lewis Stevenson and his much older American wife When I finished reading it, I really felt that I had been the proverbial fly on the wall seeing their marriage, their life, and the life of mid to late Victorian London as it actually was The dialog, the relationships between the characters, and the atmosphere that the author creates seem authentic and compelling The careful exposition that starts the work allo This [...]

    2. This book was beautifully written I feel like the pacing was very slow at the beginning, then almost too fast at the end and that maybe, given the attention to accuracy and detail at the beginning and whimsical liberties at the end, it maybe should have been two separate books However, it is clear that the author knows his time period and settings very well The language is evocative and the setting descriptions are exquisite.

    3. I read this wonderful book months ago, but still recall the remarkable language that captures the era of Robert Louis Stevenson, with dialogue that rings true and is highly entertaining I also enjoyed the fast paced plot that s a pleasure from start to finish I highly recommend this lively, intelligent novel

    4. While this was beautifully written and expertly researched, I failed to see a point to the whole story, and quickly got bored.
