I read this book and enjoyed it enough as a was reading it...though it is a very quick read...but after I finished and thought about it, it seemed...well, just bad. The characters were shallow and very stereotypical, rather than individual people. Also, the storyline was unbelievable, with many convenient, but improbable envents. Also, the whole way through, I felt like I was reading a bad imitation of Jane Eyre, with prehaps a little bit of Rebecca mixed in to the story. Despite all this, however, if you are looking for a quick, frivilous read, this would not be a bad choice.

    Good Read

    It took me a bit to get into this book, but I'm glad I stuck with it. It's a great love story, though it was pretty dark. I would recommend it.

    Great Gothic Novel

    This is a great gothic novel that will leave the reader hauntingly satisfied. This is the first book I have read by Seton, but it will not be the last! There are too few of these books written, now.

    A Great Read Over and Over!

    I was first given this book when I was a teen by my mother. I have read it many times over the years. I just recently read it again and love it as much as ever and I am now 38! It is my all time favorite book. The characters have become move vivid with every read and I get sucked into the story every time.

    Highly recommended

    Miranda had accepted the invitation that came one afternoon in 1844 to liVE at Dragonwyck,estate of her distant relative,Nicholas Van Ryn as governess to his small daughter.The beautiful country cousin was to find in the great manor house her every dream of luxury.Nicholas had frequent black moods but to her this made him seem more of a hero out of novels she had read. She was to become mistress of Dragonwyck.What she was not to learn at once was the cause of Nicholas' passion for her and the sinister secret that lay beneath life at Dragonwyck.

    Wonderful

    This is a wonderful book with many different twists and turns. It has great characters and Anya Seton put everything into awesome perspectives. I had to read and novel for school and my teacher recommended this book, and I just loved it. I would recommend it to anyone.

    Great Book

    This book was excellent, I read it about three months ago and(just like KATHERINE)was unable to put it down. I love how Anya Seton wrote it. I love the way the story ends up having a twist at the end. When I came to the part my reaction was 'Oh my Gawd!' This is a truly great gothic, romance novel. If you love KATHERINE you might love this.
