Likte veldig godt starten, og måten den er skrevet på med journalene til alle karakterene. Plotten er spennede gjennom hele boken, men føltes ofte som om at han aldri kom til poenget, og det var mye å lese som ikke hadde noe å si. Var interessant å se hvordan kvinnesynet på den tiden kommer fram i boken, ofte lurte jeg på om det var satire.

Melodramatic, horrific and fun.

1897, that's the year of publication. A few years after Carmilla, which I must still read. So wonderfully written this beginning vein of lore and horror (yes I still need to find the contrasts with carmilla). Such wonderful images, character development and I tellect built throughout this story. I feel fortunate to be able to read this from such a time ago, and timeless it is.

A disappointment, though recommended by quite a few people. The author employs a journal technique where nearly all the characters take part. It doesn't really work and I feel that some important facts were left out early on. Anyway, the real problem with reviewing the book is that what may have appeared intriguing or novel at the time the book was released is now, in fact, part of modern folklore and assumed.
