In one word…haunting. I was intrigued when a friend compared Man of Genius to Wuthering Heights, as a somewhat Gothic-style novel. I was pleasantly surprised to find that while Samuel Grafton-Hall is a central character in the story, the novel really centers upon the men and women who are drawn into his orbit. I found these characters immensely fascinating and dynamic, particularly Grafton-Hall’s love interests, Elizabeth, Daphne, and Catherine. The attention paid to architectural detail also impressed me. This clear knowledge of artistry and design really helps make the book’s settings vivid and memorable. The story itself is as grand and ornate as the architecture it depicts; I found the machinations of Grafton-Hall and the women in his life to be a bit like a chess game, clever and complex, if sometimes difficult to follow. While the beginning of the novel starts out at a slower pace, the story picks up quickly and I was able to read most of it in a single afternoon. Man of Genius certainly leaves the reader thinking about whether the right way to live life might be different from the moral way to live life. Overall, Rosen has written a very fascinating and unique novel. I still find myself thinking of Hesperus’s Walk sometimes, that grand fortress on a stormy little island – the true mark of a great story.
