Characters Missing The Ability To Draw Me In
So Shelly jumps back and forth between the past and present, is told by Keats, and is mainly about Gordon and his exploits. While the three main characters are based off of the romantic poets, many of the smaller characters are based off of their family members and acquaintances. This book combined many different themes (sexuality, racism, suicide) that should have elicited a reaction of some sort from me, but they all felt very dry.Was this review helpful?

While the characters were all well developed, they were all missing that extra something that comes from an author making the character their own. I think this was because too much of the story relied on factual people and relationships, so there wasn’t enough room for anything to be added to care about. Their characters were as if they were pulled out a history textbook, no emotion added. The story itself was interesting when it showed how people who are so different can get along and why they do the things they do.
