Read in January, 2008

This was one of the best Gothic literature books that I have read. It's a wonderful tale of ghosts, witchcraft, demons, adventure, love, social classes, and banditti. It shows the dangers of those that are hiding behind masks, especially the mask of virtue. It a tale of the downfall of a monk into the deepest realms of "sin", and the consequences of lust, pride, and hypocrisy. It's a definite MUST READ.
