    But however the truth may be as to the origin and motives of this mysterious persecution there can be no doubt that with respect to the agencies by which it was accomplished absolute and impenetrable mystery is like to prevail until the day of doombut for now this case remains Unsolved™

    I seem to be reading a string of meh I love JSlF but this one he left too many thing unexplained And I cared very little for the love story which was pretty much nonexistent It was an interesting mystery but I felt I got no payoff

    Meh Not his best work Could have been a really good story but too much fluff ie love story overt religious elements and lots of unexplained points made it fairly mediocre
