    It s not often that I like a book, so listen up and listen well.If someone had given me the bare bones outline of Tipping the Velvet and suggest I read it, I d have kindly told them to piss off I have a job, a kid to raise, and an already low tolerance for contemporary fiction A book about cross dressing lesbians in Victorian England wouldn t spark enough interest in me to get past the title page.Silly me Good thing I thought that tipping the velvet was a reference to the theater hint it s not a [...]

    As seen on The ReadventurerWell, I definitely have never read anything like this before I dare you to read this book s synopsis and not get curious at least a little bit The moment I set my eyes on a short description of Tipping the Velvet on the 1001 Must Read Before You Die Books list, I knew I had to read it Cross dressing lesbians, kept women, music hall singers, renter boys I mean, what s not to like First and foremost, this is a book about lesbians my first and written by one at that, so a [...]

    Call this the lesbian Maurice Girl meets girl then another one then another Odd that in the late 19th century England so many lesbians would all be out and about strolling the dirty streets Even odder still that the heroine of the novel stumbles upon them all This took considerable research, I m sure, and how cool is it to get this particular point of view The biggest mistake, however, was to give the narrative the first person touch making Nan King into a Bella from Twilight type, i.e clueless, [...]

    I m a straight white male living in the conservative heartland of America who likes reading about the Civil War and drinking cheap white wine sometimes with ice cubes in the glass Thus, when Sarah Waters sits down to write her novels, I am likely not the intended audience for which she spins her yarns Possibly, I am the furthest thing from it Nevertheless, I stumbled upon her most recent book, The Paying Guests, at the end of 2014, when it began appearing on all the year end ten best lists I was [...]

    Oh, gag I have SO many problems with this book What the hell was this supposed to be, anyway I will go through the possibilities Historical FictionSet in the late 1800 s, in stuffy Victorian England we meet Nancy, a young lady who falls fast and hard for another young woman performing in a theatre Yadda, yadda, yadda, they re a couple Yadda, yadda, yadda, Nancy is shocked that her sister doesn t accept this Yadda, yadda, yadda, Nancy meets and beds pretty much every female that subsequently cros [...]

    LESBIAN SEX SCENES I knew that s all you wanted to hear about I m going to go on with my review, but you re welcome to stop reading now that you know the juicy stuff And no, I will not go on to describe, in dripping detail, any of the aforementioned LESBIAN SEX SCENES For shame, I know.So anyway, a while back, my friend Coventry had piles and piles of books she was giving away and this was one of them Seeing that it was written by Sarah Waters, I nabbed it immediately and placed upon my shelf, w [...]

    I feel like I ve been repeating other people s speeches all my life Now, when I want to make a speech, I hardly know how If you are fretting over how to tell me you are leaving I am fretting, I said, over how to tell you how I love you over how to say that you are the world to me 3.5 stars This was my first foray into the writing of Sarah Waters According to my friends, I have been missing out on some great lit Now I m no longer out of the loop Tipping the Velvet follows a young lady named Nan o [...]

    Awful Terrible Boring.First half of the book was better than the last half for sure I know Sarah Waters books are a bit slow but wow.So impatient with this story And Nancy just irritated me.

    It appears that currently the most common criticism of this book on is that it seems formulaic Perhaps I am behind the times, but when did eloquent lesbian coming of age stories set in England 200 years ago become so commonplace as to even HAVE a formula Ultimately this is a love story embedded in a fluid tale of heart pounding and heart breaking moments over the course of Nan s life Either the girl gets the girl boy in the end, or the girl doesn tedicting the ending with a fifty fifty shot at g [...]

    I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.I first read this novel in 2011, and before that I watched the BBC programme featuring Rachael Stirling and Keeley Hawes, and I remember being as captivated by Kitty as Nan was So when I saw this as an ARC I knew I wanted to dip back into this unique tale of love in Victorian Britain Kitty was still as captivating and self centred as I remembered, and I still loved her for it She knows Nan is utter devoted and besotted and plays her [...]

    So maybe I Googled literary smut So In the comments below my friends are all like, and this is the best Google could do They re appalled My friends have high smut standards But the thing about the 1800s is they were basically the least smutty time in history, so a dildo goes a long way in that setting And that is Sarah Waters goal, no mistake she wants to bring smut back to the Victorians Girl on girl smut, to be exact In her own words, lesbo Victorian romps Certainly there were lesbo Victorian [...]

    A friend once told me she doesn t like historical lesfic because the sex is so underwhelming and I agree Until I read this book An reviewer calls it Victorian porn sounds like an oxymoron, doesnt it Unabashed eroticism in a period of prudishness and high morality In the context of modern lesfic, this book isn t much erotic than our usual diet of lesfic romances But perhaps the idea of same sex relationships, and some of the risque situations and uhm.uvers made readers uncomfortable I do wonde [...]

    Grrrr, that ending anyway Tipping the Velvetis the fourth Sarah Waters book I have read.Fingersmithand theThe Paying Guestsbeing ones I have particularly enjoyed This book, as to be expected in a first novel does have some creaky bits, however Waters passion for research is on full display Packed full of details on dance halls, lesbian subcultures, socialism, class and other salacious details about life on the streets of Victorian London As titillating as it sets out to be I found it a little d [...]

    Interested in of my reviews Visit my blog 4.5 starsSarah Water s debut novel set in 1890s London is a delightfully shocking tale of exploring the boundaries of gender roles in the Victorian era It s about finding out who you really are and being comfortable in your own skin and about overcoming heartache and finding love again.The Storyline And was there at her side a slender, white faced, unremarkable looking girl, with the sleeves of her dress rolled up to her elbows, and a lock of lank and c [...]

    Sarah Waters is a great storyteller, and she infuses her books with a marvellous sense of time and place, but this book just didn t really hit the spot for me The main character just didn t seem terribly believable the transformation from view spoiler girl with her first innocent lesbian crush to hard nosed street rent boy was just too rapid, so that Parts One and Two felt like totally different characters hide spoiler I was expecting something a bit racy but found the erotic parts startlingly u [...]

    My review on Prism Book AllianceLambda Literary Award winner in 2000, TIPPING THE VELVET tells the story of young Nancy Astley.She first finds her way from the simple life of an oyster girl, still living with her parents, to London in the 1880s, following her heart and the woman who caught it, into a live of performance and glamour and love.Later on, she discovers her sexuality in the hands of another woman, a rich lady who takes Nancy in as a kept girl.In the end, however, after ups and downs, [...]

    I wish there were books like this story out there Stories about groups of people in past time periods that have previously not been written about are very interesting We seem to have an uncountable number of books about rich debutantes and heiresses during the Victorian era but not many about working class oyster girls, performers and lesbians And I am on the record saying I want books about oyster girls, performers and lesbians of any era Tipping the Velvet can be generically described as a c [...]

    This is Sarah Waters first novel and is a very straight ha forward tale of the life of Nancy Astley from age 18 to age 26 as she makes her lesbian progress from Whitstable, Kent to Bethnal Green, London, from oyster girl to music hall star to toy boy ha and beyond I see other reviews have duffed up Tipping the Velvet on account of it s not got the pyrotechnic plot of Fingersmith or The Paying Guests This is like complaining that A Hard Day s Night is rubbish because it is not anything like Sgt P [...]

    Emma Deplores Goodreads Censorship
    Here is me reading this book Part 1 Yes Part 2 Whaaaa Part 3 Um, okay.Be warned there be spoilers below This book has a very clear and traditional structure, so once you recognize its contours there aren t many surprises, but my review gives away a lot.Tipping the Velvet seems to have a reputation as some kind of lesbian erotica That got your attention, didn t it The cover features a pair of strippers , the blurb praises the book as erotic, and even the title, as it turns out, is a Victorian eup [...]

    When I first picked up this novel, I was expecting an exciting romp through Victorian England, complete with lesbians, a little sex, and lots of adventure I wasn t exactly looking for a piece of classic literature On that account, this book succeeded marvelously.Tipping the Velvet is the story of young Nancy Astley, who grew up cooking oysters at her parents shop and occasionally visiting the nearby theater dance hall There she meets Kitty Butler, a masher, or male impersonator, with whom she fa [...]

    I ve been dupedLast year, approaching Summer, I saw a tweet from Stephen King recommending summer reads.One of the suggestions was anything by Sarah Waters , and that led to comments such as ingenious storytelling Well, that hooked me, and shortly after I read Fingersmith Yes, I was in full agreement ingenious storytelling, indeed.So fast forward a year later, Tipping the Velvet is on my reading list, and I m in a severe reading slump Now, I know that Waters novels have a lesbian aspect to them [...]

    What enchanted me most in this book was the language Waters is just so so good You have to read it for this, if not for the story And Victorian London looks very real without too many tiresome descriptions.Our narrator, Nancy, falls for a girl, a cross dressing singer She leaves her home town by the sea, makes a career, of sorts, in London, then everything changes for her and then everything changes for her again And again It s all very well written and unexpected turns come one after another, a [...]

    I was first made aware of this book by the BBC miniseries, which played on BBC America last year My wife and I liked it, and I got my wife the novel for her birthday, and ever since Sept she has been bugging me to read the novel With the DVD coming out, I decided to finally read it Wow Lemme say that again Wow.First of all, Sarah Waters is an amazing writer that from now on will forever remain on the Favorites list at my house Tipping the Velvet is a great debut novel by a great writer, and that [...]

    The Gothic Victorian Lesbian genre does exist In fact, there could not be a perfect description of Sarah Waters novels Part Dickinsonian, part erotica, part mystery, her characters in Tipping the Velvet explore the sexually mischievious underworld of London in the late 1800 s That being said, I m still quite critical of this book.The novel was slow to pick up until about 10 pages before book 2 Before that I was having to convince myself that hanging in there was going to be worth the wait My on [...]

    Sarah Sammis
    I was unimpressed with the book Sarah Waters appears to be a one note writer Sure, she changes the setting and the time period but her cardboard cutout characters are the same There is always the naive young woman who falls for the worldly but jaded woman and learns of the forbidden love only to scare her new soul mate straight There you go, that s the twist to every one of Waters s books that I ve read so you might as well save yourself the time and read something better.Also in Tipping the Ve [...]

    else fine
    My coworker dubbed this Victorian Dildos for Dummies and now it s all I can think of when I look at the cover Nice details and lovely descriptions provide a slightly hollow framework for the book s bland protagonist as she explores the various lesbian subcultures of Victorian London Given the book s sensational characteristics cross dressing stage performers jaded lesbian orgies socialists male prostitutes it s surprisingly boring I admired the research but couldn t give a shit about the actual [...]

    4.5 really, but not quite 5 And last of all I had a fondness you might say, a kind of passion for the music hall and particularly for music hall songs and the singing of them If you have visited Whitstable you will know that this was a rather inconvenient passion, for the town has neither music hall nor theatre only a solitary lamp post before the Duke of Cumberland Hotel, where minstrel troupes occasionally sing, and the Punch and Judy man, in August, sets his booth Delicious, sensuous, fun Th [...]

    4.5 starsThis is the first Sarah Waters book that I ve ever read, but I think I can safely call myself a fan of her work This book was beautifully written and I thoroughly enjoyed it.Nan is an ordinary girl living in the seaside town of Whitsable in the late 1800s In her spare time, she loves venturing to the music hall On one of these trips, she sees Kitty Butler, a saucy, male impersonator, for the first time Nan is thoroughly captivated by Kitty s demeanor and performance, and once the two ac [...]

    i felt strangely or perhaps, not so strangely heartbroken when i had to close this book i forget, i think, how much i need fictional spaces that speak with tenderness and care of the thousands of ways that women can love women i forget how deeply i feel their friendships and their intimacies and their fierce loves, how hungry i am to be reminded of the jealousies and all the hurts that a life accumulates, gathers to itself and nurses, but of the healing too, of falling in love again and again, o [...]
