The Crimson Petal and the White

The Crafty Conservative

I finished this book. It was really long and it kept my interest. I love historical fiction. It's a little more "sexy" than books I normally read although, I must admit, it didn't overpower the novel. I've read some books where they throw in outrageous sex scenes that make me cringe and ask "WHY???".

Here's what I hated about the book. THE ENDING!! It was way too abrupt. It didn't bring closure to any of the characters. I found myself hurrying up to get to the ending and was left feeling really cheated. I'm not the type of person that likes to imagine my own endings for the characters. At least not as much as I'm expected to do on my own as Faber suggests.

I'd give it 2 1/2 out of 5 stars.
