Inhaltsangabe
An astonishingly good debut. The Doll Factory reminded me of The Crimson Petal and the White
Fingersmith and Vanity Fair but had a richness of tone that was uniquely its own. Macneal writes with utter mastery
creating a lushly intricate world peopled by living
breathing characters you can't help but fall in love with and a plot that rattles like a speeding carriage to its thrilling conclusion. I couldn't put it down. You won't be able to either. Elizabeth Day
author of The Party. The Doll Factory is engrossing and atmospheric. Fascinating real historical background (the Pre-Raphaelites) and super invented characters. I can practically see the TV version! Adele Geras
author of The Ballet Class
Rezensionen
