“Has no idea what it wants to be and settles for boring and pointless.” – Bob Chipman, Escapist

“The eternal story of wanting what you’re not supposed to have, grasping at something that might bring everything down round you, and being someone in private quite different from your public persona. That’s a state of affairs one need not live in Victorian times to appreciate.” – Kilian Melloy, EDGE

“Instead of a contemporary view of 19th century social graces or an indictment of cultural mores, we get lots of grimacing and heavy breathing and dead babies. Such is life.” – David Riedel, Santa Fe Reporter
