Customer Review

on January 21, 2010
This has just got to be a bestseller ! Grab your copy of this 1184 page horror epic with more cliffhangers, intrigues and labyrinthine sub plots than you can shake a stake at ! Serialised between 1845 and 1847 this is possibly the greatest of the Victorian so called penny dreadful novels which Wordsworth have generously presented here- complete and uncut. At a period in English literature when Thackeray's' Vanity Fair ' and Mrs. Gaskell's ' Mary Barton' were due to be published this monstrously large and gloriously entertaining epic was coming out in penny numbers with readers from the whole spectrum of Victorian society.
The print of this edition is excellent and not too small and this is the least expensive version available. Normally you have to pay over £20 at least for a copy of this Victorian super gothic - and this new edition has a helpful and interesting introduction contextualising Rymer's novel.

I'm not going to elaborate on the plots as this will spoil your immersion in the book - but suffice it to warn you - prepare yourself for shocks and suprises in equal measure as the author unravels his vast tapestry of supernatural horror.

Grab your copy quickly before the first printing runs out !
