Books I’ll never read #9 – THE STRANGE CASE OF THE ALCHEMIST’S DAUGHTER by Theodora Goss

I just can’t with this book.

Kirkus says: “Goss….collects characters from titans of her genre and does a little reanimation of her own.”

If classics can stand on their own, let them stand without you building on top of them. Build yours up beside them; otherwise they’ll topple over, leaving us to shift through the rubble to rebuild our culture. And other metaphors here.
