By A Customer on 19 Jun. 1998
Format: Paperback
For me this is simply the finest novel ever penned, by anyone. Oates manages to capture a sweeping family saga and combine it with a living, breathing landscape in the shape the Chautaugua Valley. Bellefleur is a massive mansion in which generations of an American family have lived, died and prospered. Oates manages to hold onto the many narrative threads, interweave them and then bring the whole pattern to a dramatic and devastating conclusion. Simply awesome.

Joyce Carol Oates weaves unforgettable characters and fantastic storylines into this 500+ page masterpiece. Of the thousands of pages of fiction I read each year her characters remain the longest and most prominent in my memory.

If you love a great story I highly recommend Bellefleur.

I am surprised that no-one has reviewed this book yet. I am not the one to write an extensive professional review, but I can't leave it without comment. I have rarely come across such richness of the language, both of the Hungarian translation I first read it in 20 years ago, and the original. I would like to use the word 'delicious', but that's an understatement. an indulgence. The story is, for me, the ultimate 'haunted castle' story that never fails to entertain. I can't wait to read it again.

Bellefleur is a unique and magical novel which requires of the reader only a fertile imagination and the desire for a rattling good story. A cast of characters you have never met before and a plot which keeps you guessing.
