The Crimson Petal and the White

by Charlotte Reads Classics

The Crimson Petal and the White, Michel Faber

I finished 838 pages of pure perfection and immediately went and bought my own copy. Instantly makes my top five books of all time. I read it getting sadder and sadder because each page I turned I would never read for the first time again!  Briefly, it is about a prostitute called Sugar, her sugar daddy, his mad wife, his wannabe reverend brother, his unattainable love…. Not to mention a historical romp around victorian london. I keep trying to write a review but I just cannot do it justice. Just trust me, this is truly excellent.
