Affinity by Sarah Waters

Nicely done Victorian suspense 7/10

This is one of those books I picked up because of the interesting cover and took home with no clue of what it was about. I did recognize the author's name from the Booker prize list this year for her book the Night Watch, but had read nothing by her.I thought Affinity was pretty good, I was wanting to know a bit more about many of the lesser characters but I think she did a very good job of building the relationship between the 2 main characters. The setting (a Victorian women's prison) was very detailed and my favorite part of the book. I just wish the lesser characters had been filled in a little more, especially in relation to the key characters, while much was hinted at there was never a sense of knowing for sure how they tied in.

This sounds interesting - I might have to get hold of this & give it a try.
