    One thought on “The Arsenic Flower”

    1. 3.75 starsThe Arsenic Flower is a story that should be read at least twice the first time to plunge right in and enjoy the excellent writing and atmosphere, and the second time to savor it like a glass of absinthe and catch up with all the clues, historical and literary references you ve missed the first time In a way, this is the source of both story s strengths and weaknesses But, I m running ahead of myself.The story begins with the apparently accidental death of an English lord during a hunt [...]

    2. 4.5 starsI think this is mislabelled as an m m romance it s gay fiction, and extremely well written, but it s not at all romantic unless you re using the word in the way we might speak of 19th Gothic novels It s a brilliant homage to this genre, and is written in that style The prose is luscious and complex, with many words that have fallen out of common use It also has an omniscient narrator so we feel distanced from the bizarre and rather creepy action.If you love 19th century literature, you [...]

This book surprised me I can t even remember what I expected of it because it amazed me from the first pages on.It reminded me so very much of the writing of Oscar Wilde who makes an appearance and authors of that era in which it takes place as well.It s scary in an old fashioned way.If you like the style of writing of the beginning nineteenth century, it s definitely a must read.

    5. This is a scaring novella, but in an old fashioned way it s written according to the style of the period in which is also set, turn of the XIX century, in the same style of some of Oscar Wilde s novellas like The Happy Prince , i.e a mix of sadness, gothic but also hidden passion To Oscar Wilde the same author pays homage in the epilogue, letting the reader glimpses a possible future for the men involved.Briar and Phelan where like a mythical couple, the beauty and the beast, the fallen angel an [...]
