What could have been a fantastic story marred by awkward conversations, awkward situations, confusing role of some characters and some unnecessary plot twist. Yet I did find some scenes like the telescope fiasco and the teasing nature of Baron Edward Banks interesting.
I caught myself feeling ashamed and embarrassed at the way the author presented the lack of decorum of boobs hanging [it was not erotic or humorous], poor erection talk and a mixture of modern and 19th century dialogue. Not that I am an expert but some phrases just does not add up. I found myself saying constantly “seriously isn’t that a bit of a stretch?” Sometimes the story felt all over the place especially when the author tried to infuse scientific jargon [or not] in everyday life.
