I think this book was too complex for the state of mind I was in while reading it I loved the idea of a historical novel focused on early photographic techniues in Toronto as well as the archeological nature of the story I liked the idea of the layers of history building on one another and later being uncovered in reverse orderI think I loved the concept than the actual bookThere were some flashes of brilliance especially towards the end Redhill is a clever writer but sometimes it felt like he was too clever for me I kept wondering if I was missing thingsdid some key part of the plot really happen or was it made up by one of the characters I still don t knowSpeaking of characters I really liked the 19th century characters but really didn t care about the modern ones

I borrowed this book without putting much time into reviewing it beforehand When I actually picked it up to read and determined what it was about ie Toronto I figured it would be boring and likely not worth my while Once I started reading it I initially confirmed my suspicions and almost put it down in reality I never do this Am I glad I didn t I loved the intermingling of the two stories one from 1997 Toronto where I happen to live and one from 1856 historical Toronto It became a two for one bonusI m a fan of historical fiction and thoroughly enjoyed delving into the beginnings of what has now become the Toronto of today Redhill did an excellent job of using the appropriate diction for the times which made it all that much likeableDefinitely a good read and proof of the old adage Don t judge a book by its cover
