    The Crimson Petal and the White doc Á¸ michel faber The Crimson Petal and the WhiteA word of warning my friends I’ll be giving this the hard sell To begin please create in your mind’s eye and ear the most interesting tour guide imaginable He knows all about Victorian England – its people its paradoxes – and what’s he knows what you don’t know but would find fascinating Transitions back and forth between our modern perspectives and their older circumscribed ones are virtually seamless He’s wise about people too their uirks and motivations independent of setting Oh and the language every word is perfect You’ll hardly notice the passing hours Right from the very beginning this omniscient fellow speaks directly to you promises you intimate details some of which are dark and surprising even a bit graphic and lures you straight into 1875 You’re in very deep soon enough utterly beguiled Character driven with the plot

    The Crimson Petal and the White doc Á¸ michel faber The Crimson Petal and the WhiteI've been of the mind recently that there is something slightly worse than bad And that is almost Bad one can deal with It's easily classifiable and can be to paraphrase Susan Orlean in The Orchid Thief whittled down to a manageable size Almost is harder Almost teases you with what could have been only to disappoint you with what is Almost is wasted potential Almost lingers inside you like a dust bunny under a bed in a clean room The Crimson

    The Crimson Petal and the White doc Á¸ michel faber The Crimson Petal and the WhiteIf you don't like reading about sex don't read this book And when I say sex I don't necessarily mean the pleasant kind of reading about sex or the titillating kind of reading about sex I mean there are plenty of gory details in here about the everyday lives of Victorian women and prostitutes And many of them aren't prettyThe thing that fascinates and attracts me to this book is that it could only take place in Victorian London and yet it could

    The Crimson Petal and the White doc Á¸ michel faber The Crimson Petal and the WhiteAdult historical fiction Very adult After enjoying Faber's most recent novel The Book of Strange New Things I decided to try this his earlier novel set in 1870s England I have to admire someone who can evoke science fiction worlds and Victorian London with eual aplomb The surety with which Faber resurrects the world of the 1870s is astounding You will feel like you are there gritty streets coal blackened slums high society balls and all This is basically the story of a young prostitute Sugar and how an encounter with the young heir of a perfume empire changes both their lives in unexpected ways The story is Dickensian in its scope and its deft juggling of many colorful characters but its narrative sensibility is modern The unnamed narrator speaks directly to the reader in second

    The Crimson Petal and the White doc Á¸ michel faber The Crimson Petal and the WhiteI was totally captivated by this novel about class differences and sexual s of late Victorian London its rich and lively writing its cast of engaging characters and a plot that wavers among entertaining romp serious social commentary and tragedy A key device is an omniscient narrator who speaks directly to the modern reader in the beginning but also at turning points in the long story Rather than pulling you out of participation in the story the approach works well to stoke compassion for the characters and interest in what they will do nextWilliam Rackham is a spoiled scion of a perfume magnate who fancies himself a classics scholar and essayist Since his older brother Henry has ambitions with the church his father tasks him with taking over the family business and uses constrictions on his allowance to motivate him He is finding it harder to maintain his aristocr
