14. I just finished reading "The Night Watch" and really enjoyed it.
If you like Sarah Waters, you'll certainly like this book. As usual, Waters does her homework on the period detail in her books--and in a compelling way, weaving those details into the story flawlessly.

I have to say that plot-wise it wasn't as good as "Tipping the Velvet" or "Fingersmith" (imho).

But it's a really enjoyable read. Anyone else read it yet?
