Very enjoyable. A nice story woven into a fascinating corner of Paris history - the emptying of a huge cemetery into what became Les Catacombs. Is not quite as good as bringing out the nitty gritty, the 'puyngent smells' etc as the press reviews and jacket blurb would have you believe. But a good novel that keeps you turning the pages and wishing for more.
I would never have expected such an unusual storyline. I found it to be a fascinating new avenue. It cannot be put into an existing cubby-hole of historical novel or dectective as it is neither. A stunning read with interesting twists along the way. Do not expect any major happenings because they do not happen, only small direction changes through out the book as we experience in our own lives.
