She Lover Of Death - Boris Akunin I want to put it on my 'Victorian' shelf as well, but does 1900 in Russia count? Likely not. I loved Masha, the she lover of the title and the cover image, a smart but naive young country woman yearning to be a different person in the big city. How she makes it so is the source of a lot of my delight in the novel. Akunin manages his understanding of grief and loneliness and depression in a book that is mostly light-hearted. It sounds odd, but I enjoyed the book and was delighted to have kept a step ahead of Fandorin. Ludicrous action, you'll have to squint to avoid the trusty Japanese servant and his accent if you read it.
