Troy Chimneys review ↠ 104 A black sheep of the family connected with a scandal long buried But through the pieced together artefacts from the past a fuller picture emerges of a man torn between two persona Every aspect of Troy Chimneys its prose its characters its well researched look into regency era England its exploration of the difference between a politician s public and private faces are absolutely fantastic with the exception of its plot Troy Chimneys has no overarching plot It in some sense reads like a memoir of someone who never actually existed The segments are very episodic plot points run their course in twenty pages only to be replaced with entirely different ones and Kennedy s choice of ending while definitely stolen from the Russian school lacks the punch of similar endings in Lermontov and Pushkin through lack of proper build up Finally I found the choice of framing Mile sPronto s story with Victorian era epistles to be both unnecessary and detracting had this book been re written as a conventional third person historical novel with a tightened focus I think Troy Chimney could have been a great rather than just a good novelSince I am a reader who would rather read a well written book about nothing than a badly written book with the best plot in the world I enjoyed Troy Chimneys But if you want a plot driven page turner this book would not be high on my list
