The Wings of the Dove

Halloween Havoc (Sabrina the Teenage Witch, #4)
3.48
Quite possibly the worst book I've ever read. I guess trying to make a whole novel, even a short one, out of a TV episode is a bit ambitious, but I'm ...more

Nicholas Nickleby

One of my least favourite Dickens books. I doubt I'll bother reading it again. It was still an enjoyable enough read, though. Nicholas's mother worrie ...more

Romeo and Juliet

really liked it
I do find the story pretty stupid, but a lot of the poetry is wonderful, and it also has more humour than one might expect from its popular "image".

The Mysteries of Udolpho
3.37
WAY too long and drawn out. I almost never skip any part of any book I read, but I actually skipped a few bits of landscape description in this one.

She (She, #1)

A Little Country Girl
3.35
A little too transparently heavy on the moralism. Probably I would have liked it as a little girl.

Silver Pitchers and Independence

Jane Fairfax
3.58
(Written when I read this in 1998)

Very much enjoyed. Writing style good for the times, obviously not Austen. Too many dashes, especially in speaking.
