90 Second Review: The Thirteenth Tale by Diane Setterfield

The Thirteenth Tale book cover This is one of the most beautifully written books I’ve ever read (speaking in terms of prose and syntax). In fact, it’s one of the only books I’ve had a desire to reread simply for the pleasure of it. The atmosphere was Gothic, murky, and mysterious. The language was lush and strangely inviting. The characters were memorable. The story was consuming, however, the denouement was somewhat weak, but when I think of the book as a whole, it’s forgivable.

Personal rating: 5/5 Stars
