“And then it seemed to her that she really might be a ghost, that she might be becoming part of the faded fabric of the house, dissolving into the gloom that gathered, like dust, in its crazy angles.”

I’ve only just started “The Night Watch” by Sarah Waters so this is a bit from quite early in the book. Kay is being introspective as she views the activity on the street from her window — she feels as if she must appear like a ghost to a little boy below and perhaps frightens him. So far, this book seems “quiet” — my way of describing a story that is more psychological than active. But, as I said, I have just begun so I will reserve the final judgment until later.

  15. Thanks all!Margot — it seems a little "dark" since it takes place WW II era, London but I think it will be really good. I know that "Fingersmith" turned out to be a can't-put-it-down page turner. I am confident it will be as good.jlshall — Like I said, I just started but I put it down to finish "The Shroud of the Thwacker" because I just have problems reading more than one at a time. Anyway, it looks really good.
