Now how is that for a supporting photo?! I found this book cover on Amazon and thought it was perfect for my little review of the book we Book Blogging Babes read together this month. This was a classic I had never read and probably wouldn't have read on my own--not a science fiction person. But I didn't realize it would have so many elements of other classics I enjoy like the Bronte and Austen books. That same sort of language and style of storytelling I thought. Having said that I have to confess as much as I love Austen, Bronte and E.M. Forster I have to be in just the right mood for them. A sit down and slowly concentrate on this book mood. Lucky for me I was in that sort of mood and really enjoyed it. It was so much more complex and really less creepy than I expected. So put all your Herman Munster type notions aside and read it next October in anticipation of Halloween. I am going to do it again I think!
