This is the second Sarah Waters book I have read. The first book of hers I picked up is The Little Stranger, which I read a couple of years back for Halloween.
So, I went into reading The Night Watch expecting something in the style of The Little Stranger, writing wise, but it’s completely different. Later on, I read Fingersmith (review yet to come), and that’s completely different as well.
It’s pretty rare to find an author whose writing style varies so much from book to book.
