A.S. Byatt: The Children's Book - Reading progress update

The Children's Book - A.S. Byatt

Alright, this is the next book for the RL book group I kinda "joined". 


I am finding it really hard to find some interest in this. It's just not working for me to have children in Victorian London - the oldest of whom seems to be 11 - have such a developed understanding of social politics. 




Has anyone read this? I have a mind to DNF this.
