Books read in 2012: No. 7 - The Castle of Otranto

by Horace Walpole

Started: January 26
Finished: January 28

Notes: I've been meaning to read this gothic classic for years, and now am finally getting around to it. I've only read the first 10 percent so far, and I must say I'm liking a lot of what I'm reading.

Mini review: I have to say, this was quite the fun read. While this 18th Century work was steeped in the gothic and the fantastic, I felt it was written in quite a readable voice, almost as if for a modern audience.

I read this a couple of years ago on my kindle. Got it free from project Gutenberg. Pretty good book. Well worth the read.
