The Witches of Eastwick by John Updike
Rate this book

Overall, while reading John Updike’s book The Witches of Eastwick, I found myself disgusted and appalled. I expected a witty, entertaining story about a coven of witches, but was greatly disappointed. I’m not a prude or anti-feminist by any standards...more

Like a lot of classic horror or gothic novels, I was pleasantly surprised after reading Shelley's Frankenstein to discover the media has totally ruined this story. The entire story is differently portrayed in the media. Shelley's technique of transfo...more

I absolutely adored Dracula by Bram Stoker. I think a lot of this adoration is because this story wasn't what I expected. I knew this was obviously about a vampire, but the story itself is nothing like what the media has portrayed. Dracula is an ente...more

At first while reading Jean Rhys, Voyage in the Dark, I didn't know what to think, but once I started reading this sad story I became engrossed and as a girl could relate to this character. I think part of the reason Rhys is so successful here is bec...more

I can't say I liked or disliked Ford's novel (composed of 4 separate books). There were aspects I loved and others I didn't. You have to be completely focused to be able to follow the train of thought--the novel jumps around from subject to subject,...more

Christine and Carrie were the first two books I had ever read from Stephen King and I personally think they're two of the best he's ever written--greatly because they were early works and that's where King truly thrives. At first I wasn't sure how I...more

Pride and Prejudice was my first Jane Austen and still remains my favorite. I love the tension and confusion and the love and the hatred. A lot of people like to criticize this because they think it focuses only on marriage, but that's not true. A) y...more

Clear rating
For an Austen novel, I thought Emma was a good coming of age story. Emma is not my favorite Austen novel because it lacks a spark for me, but this story is entertaining and well written in terms of multiple love triangles and foolishness. Emma starts...more

Great Expectations is one of my favorite novels of all time. I'll admit that description in the first third of the book is very dense and difficult to read, but that's just Dickens's style and in his novels he uses this to build up the characters and...more
