This is a unique book, told in the form of the characters' diary entries, rather than chapters. Each entry develops and weaves together the characters, setting and plot beautifully.
18th C Venice and Arequipa (Peru) are brought to life vividly, as are the intriguingly likable and unlikable albeit unforgettable characters. The book is dark yet humourous; and the period is researched in depth by Lovric, a scholar in 18th C Venetian culture. Having some background in Catholicism is definitely an asset when reading this.
Also by the author is "The Remedy", in a similar style of writing, with 18th C Venice and London as the setting.
I thoroughly enjoyed both, and look forward to further novels at VIRL.
