    eBook Jane Harris ò Gillespie and I ePUB Â Gillespie and PDF/EPUB or ò gillespie epub, Gillespie and pdf, Gillespie and I PDFThe success of Gillespie I is almost entirely due to its phenomenal narrator Harriet Baxter exceedingly polite utterly manipulative the master of the backhanded compliment and one of the loneliest characters I have ever come across She's the perfect example of a fictional person that you loathe so much you love that you appreciate just for the meticulous character development The rest of the novel is excellent too with a slow burning Victorian feel and after you push through the somewhat dry first few chapters you won't put it down again Although there were a few twists and turns I was expecting most of them probably due to reading with a suspicious eye after skimming various reviews and although it probably took off a star it still speaks to its stren
