Emma Donoghue does such a good job at developing the characters and I found myself caught up on their tragic and compelling lives. A great production with overall good performance.

To be fair, I didn't finish the book but I could get passed the overly descriptive beginning and the outrageous decisions the main character makes. It gave me the impression the author wanted to demonstrate how the hardship of their setting motivated certain decisions but because neither the characters or the setting was well develop it left one perplexed and skeptical about it. It won't involve you, put it that way

Characters are well developed and historically very interesting. I love the intertwined fiction and reality. Not an action packed story and a bit slow at times but a happy ending

This one left me with the impression I had already read the story. It was the Girl on the Train all over again.
