    Description

    'Piercing the shadows of the naked stage was a single shaft of rosy limelight, and in the centre of this was a girl: the most marvellous girl - I knew it at once! - that I had ever seen.'

    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'.

    ©1998 Sarah Waters (P)1998 W F Howes Ltd

    Commentaires

    "An unstoppable read, a sexy and picaresque romp through the lesbian and queer demi-monde of the roaring Nineties. Imagine Jeanette Winterson on a good day collaborating with Judith Butler to pen a Sapphic Moll Flanders. It's gorgeous" ( Independent on Sunday)
    "She is an extremely confident writer, combining precise, sensuous descriptions with irony and wit. This is a lively, gutsy, highly readable debut" ( Observer)

    Entertaining

    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!
