A brooding and foreboding debut novel. With palpable tension between its characters, Madam builds suspense and intrigue with every turn of the page. I found it deeply enthralling and look forward to reading more from Phoebe Wynne.

I'm not really sure why I finished this. I guess I hoped it would eventually get better, but it never did. It was really slow, and it could have been 100 pages shorter. It was sadly lacking in any mystery; the metaphors and allusions were much too obvious. Some of the characters were likable, but not enough to save the rest of the book.
