Review of “The Sealed Letter” by Emma Donoghue

19 07 2011

My review of “The Sealed Letter” by Emma Donoghue is a difficult one to write. The bottom line is that this book is worth reading, but get a library copy if you can. A twist comes in the last two pages that does not match up with the rest of the book. If the build-up matched the twist, then great. The twist requires a big suspension of disbelief that while we were in two characters’ points of views, they would NEVER think about this certain issue. Yeah, right.

Overall, an interesting look into the 1800s with an asexual lesbian and a book based on a true case.
