Quite a remarkable short novel, and one that I highly recommend.
I could hardly put it down. It's a horror novel about events that take place after Swiss peasants make a deal with Satan in order to help them fulfill an impossible task imposed on them by their cruel feudal lords, a castle of Teutonic Knights. The author creates very vivid images and truly weird events. I suspect that the author sought a wide readership, because the language is very lively and not as formal and obscure as that in many 19th century novels. The whole story has its basis in concern for the poor and a Christian framework. I want to see if I can get any of the author's other books, and I say: Read this book now!
