>>>>NOTES>>>>

I read this first right after it won the Man Booker Prize in 2013 and loved it.  (The review is here.)  The history, the Victorian-type language, Dickensian plot, etc.  everything was right.  But it is a plot-driven novel (pretty much) so I really didn’t think it would hold up to a 2nd reading.  But the Booker Prize Group chose it so I thought maybe I’d give it a try.
