  1. I spent much of this book feeling the same frustration that I encounter upon reading a Facebook page or Livejournal full of vague posts The characters were interesting enough that I wanted to know about what was happening with them, but it was all so nebulously put together that I wanted to scream a little Still, the writing was beautiful for all its lack of transparency And yes, the whole thing was about Victorian spiritualists and alienists, so vague might have been wholly apt Still, I found [...]


  2. Eh, I read the whole novel but with a great deal of skimming over dull, drawn out descriptions, so perhaps I missed parts of the story that made it flow The premise for this book was quite intriguing but was ruined by a difficult to follow plot, heavy writing style and disappointing ending Skip this one.


  3. The reason this novel does not quite succeed is a shortage of originality in its plot The reason it almost does succeed is that the writing is so scintillating that it made me really want to keep reading The opening gambit, a chance meeting between an attractive woman with an affinity for tarot cards and a stuffed shirt gentleman with an affinity for Freud in a Victorian train station in London, is rendered brilliantly I felt nearly as desperate to learn what would happen next as the doctor in o [...]


  4. Fascinating look at late Victorian England, focusing on a doctor interested in the very new field of psychoanalysis and a medium, Lily, that the doctor glimpses and is intrigued by At first he s sure he wants to help her and then becomes convinced she s destroying his family Dietz does a great job of capturing the Victorian era, especially in terms of how people viewed themselves and their actions or at least I think so judging from the other reviews and ratings I m in the definite minority The [...]


  5. really why the characters were ciphers maybe the author meant for me to decide that all these poor people were pawns or slaves to their beliefs but instead, we wind up with a book where no one really has much motivation or much personality 99% of the plot takes place in the last 3 pages, and it s entirely unexpected and bizarre.


  6. I tried really hard to get through this book but I hated it with each page It was so vague and hard to follow, I finally just gave up because I kept getting frustrated with each paragraph.


  7. New author, great read You think you know here it is going but you don t Rare occurrence I ll look for this author again.

  9. I have no idea why women read books like this From the first meeting between the lead characters, it was blatantly obvious that a combination of misunderstandings and social norms would keep Ambrose and Lily apart until the end, there would be a crisis and then there would be a big ending involving doomed love.Then two thirds of the book involved this happening very, very slowly and the ending was about as fun as running naked through a paper cut generator followed by a bath in lemon juice.I ve [...]


  10. If you are looking for a straight forward, easy to read book which won t stretch your mind, this is not the book for you as it does not appear to have been the book for others.If however you are looking for a complex Victorian story of deception, faith, and science where coincidence masquerades as fate and fate masquerades as coincidence , there s lots to love here The author knows her subject matter theosophy and Madame Blavatsky, tarot cards, astrological charts, spiritualism, the parlour tric [...]


  11. This novel explores the relationship between a psychologist leaning towards the recent theories of Freud and a fortune teller medium in fin de siecle London I found the first three quarters of the novel fascinating, in particular Dietz s discussion of psychological methods and trends hurrah classism and her rich descriptions of London life However when finally called upon to tie together all the lose ends, Dietz seems to be at a loss All of her careful connections, predictions, and premonitions [...]


  12. This book, set in late 19th Century London, begins with a coincidental encounter between a mysticist and a man of science, a psychiatrist who was embracing Freud well ahead of his English colleagues Both professions were of great interest to the upper classes at that time Despite the huge rift in their socio economic status note the era , the mysticist and esteemed doctor become fascinated with each other, and play a cat and mouse game to discover about one another discretely, or so they believ [...]


  13. It took every ounce of self determination that I had to finish this book.10th house, had the usual things a good book should had a plot, it had characters, bit of Victorian history, it had a subject.Sadly 10th house is just a book Not a very good one, and worse I wasted over a month of my life trying to make sense of it.If Laura Dietz would cut out every third adjective and modifier, and spent any amount of time on developing the characters well maybe if she had written a totally new book loosel [...]


  14. This book clearly had great research in it and I am fascinated with this time in history myself She really captured it well It is very tragic book and so not for everyone The way we enter the story makes it hard for the average reader to get their bearings so you have to work at it a bit The writing is very good and heavy on dialogue, which I like, but I don t know if it belies a weakness or not For me a very worthwhile read.


  15. This book was very riveting, about a doctor of the struggling science of the mind investigating a psychic in the late 1890 s It was a little hard to read because of the intense emotional constraints and turmoil of the characters I was glued to it until the end but it left me feeling very unsettled, and not in the way that produces insight I believe it was well written but just not my cup of tea.


  16. About 50 pages in, I knew that I should give up on the book, but I wasted my time reading it instead Nothing was quite fully formed in this book Time that could have been spent fleshing out main characters was spent on a maddening amount of secondary characters that were boring tropes The ending I saw coming early on was even less satisfying than anticipated Two stars only for brief moments of lovely angst and tarot readings.


  17. Despite its beautiful and superior writing style, I felt disappointed by this book because as other reviewers claimed it lacks pathos Perhaps that s the reason this novel was not so well succeded The premise was interesting set in the times of spiritualism and the birth of psychoanalysis but I felt plodding through it Such a shame


  18. I love historical fictions, but this one was a so so kind of read for me Like a few comments I just read over it was in fact a great story that could ve told us a little Many times I felt lost wasn t feeling quite clear as to who was saying or doing what Though I do admit the ending made me feel quite sad This could ve been a MUCH better story.


  19. Very boringis felt like a required read for a class that everyone dreads It is written in a very old fashioned tone, even though it was published in the present time Disturbingly, it read borderline mysogynistic and it was written by a woman


  20. This book was interesting for the histroical insight into 18th century london and class relations But at times it was confusing and jumped around and I would have liked it much if I had skipped the last two chapters The ending just ruined it, wouldn t recommend.


  21. An intriguing premise where a chance meeting between a doctor interested in Freud and a woman who reads tarot leads both to assume many wrong things and in the end switch places Evocative of turn of the 19th century Britian, but the prose was difficult to follow, unnecessarily.



  22. I enjoyed this novel Not sure why others were so luke warm Interesting to read about the birth of psychoanalysis.


  23. I woul not recommend this book the ending was frustrating and confusing I had the sense that the author had to edit the book down and bring the storyline to an end abrubtly Very unsatisfying.




  24. Stopped reading as the writing does not flow well There are millions of books out there that I could read instead




  25. I returned this to the library after readng a couple of chapters It had great potential but anyone who s ever read any mystery could figure the entire story out after a few pages.
