The Nevers

In summary, “WHAT THE HELL WAS THAT?!”. Seemingly a Victorian Superhero piece, transforming into unintelligible scifi bollards at the last minute. A review I read prior to getting started described it as “a mess”, and that’s certainly how it ended – though there was enough in it to keep us …

Not only a torturous journey through the mundane, but it’s foolish not to note that it was Kate Winslet utterly refusing the glamour bit.  Really compelling story with loads of twists, some which went …
