Not the horror story I was expecting. Mostly a story about death. Very strange story but it was pretty engaging. Really vivid character. I wanted more information on the Fanshawes though.

This was a reread for me but oh the JOY! Rape, Murder, Romance, Ghosts, Sins, Lust - what more can you want from a book. It is a horrific story but so well done. You can’t put it down. Loved it even more the second time around!

OK I don’t get what the fuss is about. Poe is clever and his stories are really vivid BUT I don’t love them, or hurry to read through them. There were only a handful I really enjoyed. It was a long read.

I LOVE Wilkie Collins! He is dark, mysterious, twisted and really really heart-wrenching! The plot keeps you guessing till the end. I loved it so much! Why are not all novels written like this?

Completely different from the film but just as good. Writing is not brilliant but the voice, description and characters are truly haunting. Excellent! A real page-turner.

Cute little book with interesting points, but its more on etiquette and manners than a budget book. Really has aged, but it is no less enjoyable. The ‘cases’ section are the most fun to read. Not as good as I expected.
