    Dr Jekyll och Mr Hyde av Robert Louis Stevenson (DanLovesAlice)
    DanLovesAlice: Both texts share the notion of the duplicity of man, and study how society and social roles can imprison our most primitive urges.

    Den förälskade djävulen av Jacques Cazotte (Jannes)
    Jannes: The Monk is generally considered to be heavily influenced by Le Diable amoureux, and the novels share several themes, most obviously the idea of the devil in the form of a seductive woman.

Selling your soul to Satan is a tantalizing premise. So I expected the Monk to be: an exciting tale of fighting temptation from the greatest seducers; keeping your virtues from corruption and sin. With some hope, I expected this book would alleviate the disappointment I had with the The Pillars of the Earth ─ Ken Follett. But no, this is another disappointment; perhaps I'm not the target audience.
The biggest issue is the length. Long convoluted sections are common. The selling point i.e. the monk's corruption, only appear in the latter half.
I read through the prolix text and was rewarded with an interesting story. How the monk showed its wicked side was exciting; Satan didn't corrupt the monk, but merely revealed its nature.
However, I cannot say it was worth it. I shouldn't have to torture myself to get to the point of the book. But maybe this complains are unfair, the book is from 1796, and maybe as cared little for the subplot ─ especially the romance — I may have missed something. ( )

Filled with melodrama, ridiculousness, and ghosts. I loved it!

It has a great moral that is still useful today-Be pious because you are a good person, not because you think you're better than everyone else. ( )

Ok this book is so great- it starts off kinda slow a you're like yeah yeah a monk, blah blah picking up girls at church, but then it escalates...and really escalates ... And suddenly HOLYSHIT THE ENDING.

Also I love Satan.

The best last chapter of a book of all time. ( )

A late 18th century Gothic "horror." To sum the book up in a word: sex! Monks and nuns having all kinds of illicit sex, even with demons. I can tell you that I read every single one of the 263 pages and I probably only made connections about 50% of the time. This book is character heavy and plot thin. It was difficult for me to relate the characters to each other. Lewis does make for a tidy ending though as the evil monk Ambrosio and his hench-lady, the Prioress, are executed. I guess there is nothing new under the sun because this book had "date" rape drugs. 263 pages ( )

A fun read and shocking that such content was written in 1796! I do prefer Ann Radcliffe with the explained supernatural. Her response to Lewis’s The Monk was The Italian and I preferred that volume. But, my time was not ill-spent with this crazy book! A fun beach read! ( )

None sleep so profoundly, as those who are determined not to wake.
An Author, whether good or bad, or between both, is an Animal whom every body is privileged to attack, For though All are not able to write books, all conceive themselves able to judge them.
Agnes! Agnes! Thou art mine! / Agnes! Agnes! I am thine! / In my veins while blood shall roll / Thou art mine! / I am thine! / Thine thy body! / Thine my soul!
