Set in mid-1700s New York City, Francis Spufford's "Golden Hill" is an impressive recreation of a long gone age, as well as a tribute to the early British novels of Smollett and Fielding. However, Spufford spends so much time trying to capture the sights, sounds, smells, and language of the period that he neglects the plot and characters. Well, he overplots and the book is half comedy of manners and half thriller without really succeeding at either. English majors might like this. It reminded me of David Liss's books, many of which are also set in the 18th century, although I think his books are far more lively and engaging.
