I’ve read a lot of DuMaurier books and loved them all. This one was somewhat different, and while it had her characteristic twists and turns, I just didn’t enjoy it like I have her other books. Julius is the story of a young boy, working his way from rags to riches, anyone who gets in his way or too close be damned. It’s short, and I felt there just wasn’t much to it. I wouldn’t recommend it, but I’d be interested to hear some differing opinions.
