comThis book was so good I can t believe I have had this book in my stacks for a few years now The story is so bizarre and sad I loved it When Margaret is called upon by Vida Winter, a famous author, to come and write her biography she has no idea what she is in for with this woman Vida tells the story of her life as a child, but she is not who she seems The twist ending threw me right off the bus I didn t see that one coming at all, but I should have expected something along those lines The way the author weaves this tale is so haunting and it reels you right into the book I can not fathom how children can be brought up this way The story unfolds in a beautiful, well, what should be, a beautiful mansion in the co This book has been on my tbr for the last three years Then with time, I lost track of my old list to be read and moved on to reading other books which sparked my interest.
Then recently I came across these books which I thought I would red but had never looked at them again, so I decided to start reading my old interests This turned out to be the first one After a long long time, I came across a story that had me captivated until the last word It kept me awake at night, every moment I tried to catch a point so that the mystery be solved but it kept me hooked up until the very end.
This is the story of unwanted attention and lost love.
Of unbearable sorrow and irreplaceable loss.
Of broken hearts and lost souls.
Of damaged minds and clever ideas.
Of beautiful lies and ugly truths.
Of blue eyes and red hair.
Of empty reality and co Reviewed by Rabid ReadsSo here s my problem with gothic literature it s so habitually grotesque that it s predictable.
If there s not incest, there s a crazy wife in the attic If there s not a crazy wife in the attic, there s a murderous illegitimate son who s not right in the head Or conjoined twins Or a dying gypsy s curse Or something equally unsettling.
So even if you guess the HEP Big Secret wrong, whatever it actually is isn t going to make a dent B c you ve already imagined the worst B c gothic.
ALSOI don t like it.
If I lived in the time of traveling freak shows, I would not attend Not my bag.
You So why did you read it Me B c didn t realize it was gothic until I d already started it.
You Why didn t you quit Me SCHADENFREUDE thestruggleisrealPlus, the concept is friggin amazing E The perfect October Autumn read Not since Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier has a book so entranced and haunted me I rarely read a book twice but when this came up for a sit in book group I was so excited as I longed to pull the curtains and welcome in the Autumn nights with this wonderful multi layered mystery with its gothic athmosphere that gave me chills down my spineSet in the English Country side Angel field House stands abandoned and forgotten It was once the imposing home of the March family facininating, manipulative Isabell, charlie, her brutal and dangerous brother and the wild untamed twins But Angelfield House conceals a chilling secret whose impact still resonates.
Unnerving and compelling in equal measure, this is one of those books where the pages turn by themselves A story of twists and turns to keep the reader on the edge of their seats No guts or
Lots of people told me that this was a book I needed to read, but many of those people also warned me that I might find it slow So I went into The Thirteenth Tale prepared for a subtle plot that moved at a gentle pace well maybe my expectations are to blame but that wasn t what I got Slow Not for me There was not a slow moment in this story because the prose itself was dynamic and consumingly evocative I was intrigued by the mystery, seduced by the characters and caught up in page after page of well written family drama.
Do you like 1 books2 Mysteri We live like latecomers at the theatre we must catch up as best we can, dividing the beginning from the shape of later eventsThe Thirteenth Tale had been waiting in my TBR list for almost two years, before I finally decided to start reading it It proved to be a rare bibliophile s experience.
In the Gothic Literature group October Reading and in a recent discussion with a friend in Goodreads, I described Diane Setterfield s novel as foreboding Each scene, each sentence is a creation of art, each detail so important, nothing is wasted Each page leads to the shocking final twist, although some of the twists in the middle of the book were a bit predictable, if you paid attention I will not go into any detail of the plot, because it is hard to do so without falling into the trap of spoiling something, but I can say that
