I really enjoyed this book because the author takes you into the story and the characters. Through the use of different points of view, each of the main characters enjoys a certain depth and has specific role in the book. The way the setting is described you really get the feeling that you are in 19th century london. Readers can relate to Modos unhappiness with his outward appearance but cannot fully relate to his true self hatred and loathing. I thought that the steady under current of romance in this book was done really well, and that all of the internal struggles fit together.
