Tipping the Velvet - Sarah Waters After loving Fingersmith, I was all ready for another Sarah Waters outside-of-the-box story. But it wasn't to be; for me, Nan was so self-centered she became increasingly unlikeable. I am all for self-discovery but Nan becomes so wrapped up in herself that she is incredibly one-dimensional and I cared less and less about what happened to her/the relationships/if she found happiness. Wasn't crazy about her stint as a feMALE renter either- it seemed like a leap. I did appreciate the depictions of London and the time - Waters gets those spot on. But hey, I will most likely watch the film when it is released.
