"Set in a posh hotel in nineteenth-century Dublin, Albert Nobbs is the story of an unassuming waiter hiding a shocking secret. Forced one night to share his bed with an out-of-town laborer, Albert Nobbs's carefully constructed facade nearly implodes when the stranger discovers his true identity--that he's acutally a woman. Forced by this revelation to look himself in the mirror, Albert sets off in a desperate pursuit of companionship and love, a search he's unwilling to abandon so long as he's able to preserve his fragile persona at the same time"--P. [4] of cover.

One of the rare times I liked the movie better. A hard read because dialogue was not clearly marked and sometimes I could not tell what was being said or thought. Also, the pronouns changing was hard to sort out too, but I suppose that is the point of the story.

This book has a VERY abrupt ending. It's quite jarring, but the rest of the book is good.

Enjoyable enough, but the way the narrative was written I found it a nuisance to have to pay attention to follow who was talking. But the story was good. worth reading.
