Plain Bad Heroines: The extraordinary new gothic novel and work of LGBT literary fiction (English Edition) Kindle版
‘Brimming from start to finish with sly humour and gothic mischief, Plain Bad Heroines is a brilliant piece of exuberant storytelling by a terrifically talented author’ SARAH WATERS
‘Full of Victorian sapphic romance, metafictional horror, biting misandrist humor, Hollywood intrigue, and multiple timeliness―all replete with evocative illustrations that are icing on a deviously delicious cake’ O, THE OPRAH MAGAZINE
‘A gloriously over-the-top queer romp’ I PAPER, top picks for 2021
‘Big and messy – and immensely enjoyable’ I PAPER
‘Spooky, sexy and immensely entertaining’ CLAIRE HENNESSY,THE IRISH TIMES
‘I can tell you that it is a ride very much worth taking. One full of the Gothic and the glamour, brimming with historically bad heroines and women with warped predilections, but there is one thing I have failed to mention so far: the yellowjackets. Their buzzing echoes eerily throughout the pages of Plain Bad Heroines, the consequences of their repeated stings are devastating and reverberate across the centuries’ DIVA MAGAZINE
‘Plain Bad Heroines is immersive, addictive, frustrating and highly entertaining featuring a brilliant cast of extremely eccentric, yet very intriguing, characters. A tale made for the big screen I would think!’ SWIRL AND THREAD

Also it had a poly relationship and I was all for it.
What I didn't enjoy was the last 5% (60 pages), it just ended. Very lackluster didn't really join the two eras or the storyline to a close, just end.
I'm not sure how I feel about the book yet because of that, because throughout reading it to that point I LOVED IT, I was storming through chapters to get back from the cliffhanger of the modern day characters to get back to the vintage characters to see how they were doing. I even loved the modern characters and hoped their personalities and "cursed" ongoings would bring them together to solve the case queer Scooby-Doo style. But no.
While we got some idea of how 'it all began', and I had a vague idea of who the narrator was, I feel like I needed a bit of a tie in and I never got it.
The artwork throughout was brilliant, Lemony Snicket vibes, just fit right within the pages.
Also the narrator was brilliant, and quirky, occasionally clunky when you had to eye jump the page in the middle of a story, but overall I enjoyed them a bunch. To start with the first chapter had the narrator question if they're here you To continue reading, and I was all for it so I continued.
Also they mentioned the Titanic then the narrator notes they won't draw me like a French girl, classic.
