A TALE WITHIN A TALE WITHIN A TALE WITHIN A TALE ...,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Manuscript Found in Saragossa (Penguin Classics) (Paperback)
Stunning - would give it 6 stars if I could.
Romantic, erotic, humourous, horrific, ironic, satiric .. and very Gothic.
No review can really do this book justice, filled as it is with twists, turns, unreliable narrators and an extremely complex narrative structure.
If you're after a work of literature that will really stretch you and demand your concentration, rather than easy-reading pulp fiction (not that there's anything wrong with easy-reading pulp fiction!) then "Saragossa" is very highly recommended.
I read the book before seeing the movie, which is disappointing in comparison (but still worth seeing).
