Fascinating - an unusual angle on the victorians

The essential subject matter of the book - the Victorians - feels like it has been done to death - but this is such an interesting take on the subject. The different chapters exploring different topics relating to the body (but including a huge amount of interest around Victorian society) are all fascinating and fun - except the final one, which is fascinating but very disturbing (I'd leave that one out if you don't like dark stories.). I highly recommend this.

Such a strange eerie story. So beautifully read - Kenneth Branagh has such a rich, expressive voice. Highly recommended.
