| GUEST REVIEWER chapter 1 . 9/11/2013
There's a good story here-the other reviewers are saying it's really good and I believe them- but I'm afraid I don't have the patience to tease it out. Your sentence structure's a bit too confusing for me. Maybe you could work toward clarity and simpler sentences It would help.
Someone asked about refrigerators. In winter they carved thick blocks of ice from frozen-over bodies of water (rivers and lakes) and stored them in ice warehouses to use the rest of the year round. You bought a block of ice and kept it in your 'ice box'. You didn't have any to spare for putting in drinks, though the rich sometimes carved some up into fancy shapes for parties and such.
There was more emphasis on preserving foods in other ways then too: home canning, salt, sugar, drying and smoking. Meats were typically salted and hung up in smoke houses, small one-room buildings with hearths but no chimneys. The fire was kept going and the smoke kept pests away while the meat cured in the smoke.

This was great! I loved it!
It was sad.
But Ciel and Sebastian's relationship is always complicated.
Great job. I hope you keep writing!
And I'm pretty sure they didn't have fridges yet. I know they stored things in root cellers etc, and they could only have ice in winter.
