I must admit I do like a good Victorian Literature! It's just disappointing that Le Fanu doesn't have the same reputation as many other classic Victorian writer's.
This story tells the tale of a young and Naive Maud Ruthyn, whose father's death leaves her under the care of the mysterious uncle of the story's title.
One of the most striking points about this book is that apart from a few scattered incidents and a wonderfully melodramatic ending very little happens!
I found myself hooked on this book because of the tension of what was going to happen, but the ending left me with A sense of "is that it??" I did read this book on my phone, so I'm not sure if picked up a dupe copy I know I didn't as it came from google book's.
