Things in Jars
Collectors. The more quirky Jess Kidd’s novel titled, Things in Jars, became, the more I surrendered to her finely written prose. She gives readers a Victorian detective mystery packed with a cast of fascinating, unusual and sometimes otherworldly characters. We see that wealthy individuals would collect specimens of all sorts of unusual things and behave in ways that disturb modern readers. There are curiosities and spectacles that define the time period, and a female detective whose skills are put to the test in this intriguing case. Rating: Four-star (I like it) Click here to purchase Things in Jars from amazon.com.
