Reading progress update: I've read 99 out of 272 pages.

Unspeakable - Dilys Rose

Observations so far:

 

Good:

 

The story is told in a form of Edinburgh vernacular.

The descriptions of life in Edinburgh at the close of the 17th century are quite vivid.

 

Questionable:

 

The story is told in a form of Edinburgh vernacular.

This is not a gripping read.

The story features some clear political bias. Even if I agree with the sentiment in general, I'd rather not have this rubbed in my face on every second page.

 

Bad:

 

Why did the publisher and author think it was a good idea to give away the ending in the first line on the back cover blurb?
