Jury is still out on similarities, either in the experience of reading it or in other ways. Which is not to say I'm not enjoying The Exquisite. Indeed I am. I'm not sure where it is all going, but I've seen enough to know I'll follow it through to the end.
My Google searches have come up with nothing. I don't think there is anything out there. Anyone? Seen anything? Some sort of comparison? I'll be duly embarrassed if it turns up somewhere simple, like Powell's. (OK, not there, just checked.)
