I found the main character reminded me a lot of Steerpike. Cold ambition, etc. Did you get that impression too?

YES! I'm so glad you said that. I love characters that are based like them - they're always ugly, reckless and misunderstood but 'rise above' everyone else in their slyness. I picture Grenouille to be really talk and lanky with massive hands.

I've read that; it's quite odd but I absolutely loved it. Then again, I'm a fan of what could be called odd books (The Lovely Bones, The Time Traveller's Wife and Middlesex being my favourite books alongisde Noughts & Crosses which is ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!!).

Could I also be added to the soc list, please?

Elusive Moose, I've also read the Lovely Bones! That was a great book. Noughts and Crosses was also a great read. I must get my hands on The Time Traveller's Wife too, since I keep hearing its name pop up. Hmm.

Steerpike, I have to agree - I find characters like that very compelling too. Anything else you'd recommend?

There's a fellow in the liveship trader series by Robin Hobb like that - I can't remember his name but the series is damn good in itself. Though it's not as dark and twisted as Gormenghast, which is a shame...
