Enough mystery and romance to keep me reading. Interesting reading an American mystery from 100 years ago. Americans were much more innocent then.
reading this now and liking it very much. some aspects of the plot are predictable, but the somewhat old-fashioned language and the characters are charming. i like that the story is set in indiana also, since that is where i live. nicely written and the plot has some exciting twists and turns. there are a number of misspellings in the kindle version. not sure how they put the book into ebook formats, but there may be a few bugs with that method. all in all i hightly recommend this book.
very good read. a futuristic robinson crusoe story with an intellectual and philosophical bent. the author uses words quite well. i found myself reading some paragraphs over a number of times just to enjoy the words and descriptions.
