The Mysteries of Udolpho by Ann Radcliffe

The Mysteries of Udolpho - Ann Radcliffe

 

3.5 stars for this classic gothic novel.


This was an engaging read and is considered to be one of the first gothic novels. I loved the language, I loved the characters (except for the evil M. Montoni and Madame Charone) , but I did dislike the extensive descriptions of scenery that seemed to go on forever.

I'm glad that I read it, but I doubt I will ever tackle it again for a re-read in the future.
