really liked it
bookshelves: literary-fiction, terror, social-issues, classics, book-group
Read 2 times. Last read July 1, 2011 to August 1, 2011.

Fanfiction that dramatically improves its source material is really, really good fanfiction. I first read this ten or so years ago and liked it, but I just reread this alongside The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, which I'd never read before, for book group. What a fantastic reading experience, and what a great follow-up conversation. This is the first time I can recall every member of my book group loving the book.
