I've read this book. I remember it as a great book. I just can't remember what it was about. I guess that's an excuse to hunt my copy down and read it again soon.

Ohh...good list. I really liked Fingersmith even better than Affinity; though Tipping the Velvet is a classic, I just didn't like the ending. I thought it was too rushed.

I actually liked the ending of the movie a lot better than the book, which is rare for me. If only Victorian era writers works were as entertaining as Sarah Waters.

I know, right?? It's one of the only times I've said I like the movie ending better than the book. I'm glad other people agree with me!!
