Current reads.

At the moment I am reading Fingersmith, by Sarah Waters. The novel captures a real sense of period and the tone is perfect throughout. The plot rips through London and the country, encopassing elements so familiar to the gothic genre such as mental institutions and identity theft. I have almost finished and am savouring the last few chapters; I love that feeling just before you finish a novel! Very reminiscent of Wilkie Collins. A definitely good read.
