THE EMPEROR OF PARIS, by C.S. Richardson [2012]

Emperor of Paris

R. Tim Morris’ Rating: 4/10

Just couldn’t get into this one. From the reviews I’d read, it sounded like The Emperor of Paris was a slow start for most, but if hung on to long enough would pay off. Not for me. Too many characters within a jumbled chronology made for a terribly hard read, one I found extremely hard to focus on long enough to really get into.
I get the feeling that a second read would really change my perspective on this novel, but for now there are far too many other books I need to get to!
I will say however that C.S. Richardson has a wonderful way with words; his work might benefit from a much more linear story.
