Recensioner

This was a very enjoyable novel even if it did have too many characters who were constantly woven in and out of the plot.

This was interesting to read. It was difficult to follow at times, though. The dialogue made it tough at times to figure out just what was going on. The plot also felt like it jumped from place to place instead of transitioning smoothly.It is an interesting example of a classic ghost story complete with a ruined castle, murder, and twists around every corner.

read this book as part of a Group Read assignment. I'm a fan of Jane Austen's "Northanger Abbey" and am therefore interested in studying the gothic literature this book was parodying. "The Midnight Bell" made the infamous list now referred to as the Northanger Canon and was our Gothic Group Read's selection of the month. I can definitely see what Jane Austen was making fun of. I about fell over laughing repeatedly due to the ridiculous situations these characters got into along with just how unappealing any of the characters are. The heroine faints every other chapter. The hero cries at the drop of a hat. The story-telling is all tell and no show. But still, with all of its faults it is very entertaining. I look forward to reading more from the canon.… (mer)
