The Beetle - Richard Marsh

 

I give up.

 

I don't care if they catch the "Arab" (who I think is actually Egyptian, but it was 1897).

I don't care if the Arab is male or female.

I don't care if Marjorie gets burned alive as a human sacrifice to Isis.

I don't care if Lessingham has complete mental and emotional breakdown.

 

I thought I would be able to at least skim to the end, but I just could not care less what happens to anyone.
