p.223 It seemed to me that there had never been an animal more perfect in the history of creation. Its beauty was terrifying, impossible.

Framing the novel creates a captiviting entrance, but the development of the story is lacking. The novel grabs the reader by placing the narrator in the mad house and moving to a digression. The imbalance of setting is stirring. Combining painting and mesmorism is the highpoint of the story. There is an imbalance throughout the story with the dialogue and ideas
