free read The Music of the Spheres 106 He shadowy alleys of London The redemption he craves won't be found in the politics of war The answers he seeks won't be on the city streets Danger and intrigue will compel him to look elsewhere for it is where he least expects it that a secret is hidin. This is an interesting book I almost gave it up around a uarter through the plot was advancing in such inch by inch increments that I thought it would never actually get anywhere But the story opens in 1795 when such was the norm everything was slow travel communication the flow of information I persisted because I found the two main characters so realistic unheroic damaged by loss and hopelessness struggling with hard precarious lives on the edge of real poverty in a time when poverty was a death sentence and deeply flawed Even the most appealing gentle and empathetic character the protagonist s gay brother is willfully blind to his own exploitation and abuse of a vulnerable other The plot elements having to do with the French revolution and Britain s role in supporting the Royalists attempting to return to power is labyrinthine I got lost a few times forgetting who was who and on which side they seemed to be operating but that wasn t actually critical to the story which is really about obsession loss and moral dilemmas Some of the other characters are rather over the top melodramatic with madness and rapacious sexuality playing a large part And there is a jarring section that is totally out of place the entire story to that point having been told from the POV of the two main London characters we are suddenly in a conversation between two generals on a battlefield in France and following their maneuvers The ending too is melodramatic Still I think this is worth reading with all its flawsOn edit After I review a book sometimes I like to read around and see what published reviews say about it On this one the Publishers Weekly reviewer wrote part of the problem with the book is that it is so unremittingly downbeat with no glimmer of hope that anything will improve I think there s a lot to criticize in this novel but this irritated me Since when is downbeat uneuivocally a problem in literature Methinks this reviewer has been spending too much time at Ophra s Book Club
