it was amazing
Read in February, 2011

Famous for being the first ever Gothic novel, Godwin (fathe rof Mary Shelley) was a political activist in the late 1700s who was concerned about the manipulation and mistreatment of the poor and the corruption of the rich - he used the suspense of the Gothic novel to intensify the call for change he wanted to see. The story centers around the false accusation of Caleb by his employer Falkland (the corrupted rich) who is hiding a dark secret and hot on Caleb's heels as he flees for freedom and fights for his innocence.
