    E–pub/E–book [Derby Day] I had mixed feelings about this Booker nominated novel I was initially uite excited to read it Historical fiction set in the Victorian era with a mystery thrown in What’s not to like? And indeed there’s certainly something very mature and polished in Taylor’s writing with the style approximating late Victorian writing rather closely Bu

    E–pub/E–book [Derby Day] This is a skilful and subtly ironic re working of a Victorian novel The main difference is that the plot centring round the betting and speculation on horses leading up to the Epsom Derby is tightly controlled with very few digressions except where the author wants to set the scene especially that of Derby Day itself which uses the panoramic painting by Frith for inspiration There are obvious and intentional echoes of

D.J. Taylor ó 7 read & download free read Ï eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB ó D.J. Taylor Derby Day characters ✓ 7 As the shadows lengthen over the June grass all England is heading for Epsom Downs high life and low life society beauties and Whitechapel street girls bookmakers and gypsies hawkers and acrobats punters and thieves Whole families stream along the Surrey back roads towards the greatest race of the year Hopes are high nerves are taut hats are tossed in the air this is Derby DayFor months people have been waiting and plotting for this day Even in dark November when the wind. The only mystery in this book despite the billing is why I read the whole uite lengthy thing The book is structured as if it were a complex puzzle and you read it accordingly with extremely close attention to detail at the beginning but eventually it becomes evident that there is no mystery to be solved and that the book s multitude of narratives won t come together but will simply end All the characters are trite the rogue the down on his luck scion of a good family the romantic governess the hardened criminal and none get real treatment to become than stock characters I think the novel was trying to say something about the position of women at that time through the character of Rebecca and at the beginning it is implied that she has some grand scheme in mind But plotwise there is no pay off there and her motivations remain enigmatic and as a character she is too unlikeable the word horrible is freuently used to describe her to provide the center of gravity the novel needs Book remains a series of set pieces none too fresh and rather lengthy instead of a mystery or even just a gripping tale
