Read 2 times. Last read April 14, 2018 to June 14, 2018.

Reread from anthology "Sensational Tales of Terror Penny Dreadfuls".

Not what I remember, and nothing like the myriad adaptions for stage and screen.

Very Victorian in language and gothic moodiness. Uses letters and diaries as a means to back into the story from different directions. I'll admit I prefer the linear works of Wilkie Collins and Charles Dickens; however, I love the language and turn of phrase of R.L. Stevenson, so I will continue to read his works (and reread...).
