A saucy, sensuous and multi-layered historical romance, Tipping the Velvet follows the glittering career of Nan King - oyster girl turned music-hall star turned rent boy turned East End 'tom'.

I remember reading this years and years ago, and I remember loving it. I had forgotten however how whiny the main protagonist is. And selfish. It is of course part for her story arc, but it does grate on my nerves when I listen to it again.
The writing however is outstanding. It's so vivid I can imagine every single scene as if I was there. The sex, or as we call it in the fanfic world, smut, is good. Almost on par with some of the raunchier fics I've read. And that's saying a lot.
Extra plus for having an inevitable, but satisfying ending.
Whiny protagonist or not, this is still a very entertaining and good book.

Overall nice read, bit cheesy sometimes
If you're gay and you like period novels, you will like this. Refreshing to read, if a bit purple prosey, but I guess that's in the title so it doesn't come as much of a surprise. It doesn't lessen the fun, either, so definitely give this a try!
