The Quilty Reader

Lawyer, mother, avid reader. Game host extraordinaire! Partner in crime to Obsidian Black Plague! My bookish weaknesses include classics, fantasy, YA, and agreeing to read more books than is even remotely possible.

Inspired by Obsidian Blue

Jane Steele  - Lyndsay Faye

I had bought this in audio, and when I saw that OB was reading it, I decided to jump on the band wagon. I'm at about 20%, and I have to tell you, I am both riveted, and thoroughly enraged. I would call my current state engaged and enraged. 


Jane's aunt is horrible. The school master, though, that perverted, malicious, murderous jackhole, well, I am right now plotting his death. Hoping that he ends up being mauled by a polar bear and choking on the chewed up remains of his own severed penis. Or, maybe, having his testicles removed with a serrated grapefruit spoon, and then dying of exsanguination. I don't know. All I know is that he is one of the most inspired and horrible characters I've encountered in a long, long while.
