    The Castle of Wolfenbach: A German Story - Eliza Parsons,Diane Long Hoeveler Castle of Wolfenbach (1793) by Eliza Parsons: sort of a Nancy Drew openingI'm cross-posting my own review because eventually I hope to have read the entire horrible book, and I'd like to have all the sub-reviews collected.  Wow. So it's clear why this didn't remain a popular book for long. All of the creepy gothic stuff takes place at the beginning.

So it's clear why this didn't remain a popular book for long. All of the creepy gothic stuff takes place at the beginning. Then there's a section of characters acting like normal (aristocratic) people and traveling and having large house parties, and crushing on each other, and oh, if I had read this book before reading Mansfield Park I would never have cast any aspersions upon Fanny. Mathilda is rather unusually perfect in every way, such that everyone who meets her is immediately smitten and keen to support her for the rest of her life; and, yeah, that's not the most unbelievable part. Hard to say what is, though. There's the way two different villains repent of the horrors they have done and are immediately forgiven by the only survivors. Or the way everyone talks in monologues that last for pages of dense paragraphs. Or the pirate who was planning to retire anyway, so he might just as well help Mathilda out...Really, there isn't a single believable bit in the whole book, neither in the story nor in the telling. To sum up: gruesome, and not in a fun way (unless you enjoy reading awful books, which apparently I do, if they're old enough). First of The Complete Northanger Horrid Novel Collectionpersonal copy.

    Finished The Mysteries of Uldopho. I can see why it was so popular at the time. A little overwrought at places. Much longer than I thought it would be (or prefer it to be). Some not-believable coincidences that tied everything together at the end. May eventually read some of the other books in this collection.

    A very slow read. I just could not get into the story line and found it boring. I don't really like this type of book. A very slow read. I just could not get into the story line and found it boring. I don't really like this type of book.

    Longest Book Ever! Several of the stories are very similar...Lots of young women being kidnapped and taken to convents, men falsely accused of murder and bandetti in the woods.

    This is a collection of the nine gothic novels that Jane Austen mentions in her novel, Northanger Abbey. Some were pretty good. Some not so much.
