I would greatly recommend The Mysterys of Udalpho, by Ann Radcliffe, to any adult or young adult who loves a suspenseful plot with an added bonus of romance. The Mysterys of Udalpho tells the classic story of good versus evil. The book¿s focus is on a young orphaned heroine, Emily St Aubert. Radcliffe does a brilliant job in showing Emily¿s growth physiologically as well as psychologically throughout the book. Emily is held a prisoner at the castle of Udalpho, where it is hard for her to tell reality from fantasy. The constant twists in the plot keep you on the edge of your seat as you are reading. The intricate plot comes together well with an exceptional ending that has you smiling and shaking your head in disbelief.

I'm still envolved in the book at the moment. And, despite a slow start, it quickly got me interested and now I am captivated by it. I find myself even shouting out exclamations for the characters like one does in a movie theater when the actors start walking towards the weird light and the creepy music starts playing. I can't wait to find out what happens next!!!

The book started out slow, but once I got into it there was no putting the book down. There are so many mysteries throughout the book that it only adds to the intrigue. The author does well in answering all of the questions you form while reading the book. It was a great romance with adventure. I would recommend this book to any serious reader.

I first heard about this book when I was reading Jane Austen's 'Northanger Abbey'. It made this book sound so interesting I just had to read it. I am only 14, but it is one of the greatest books I have ever read. I would strongly recommend this book to anyone even remotely interested in literature.

Google's digitaization of this classic is at times impossible to decipher the original word. With numbers and various puncuations thrown in place of letters the text finds itself struggling to convey the intended meaning. To truly enjoy this tale look for a better digital copy.

This was an awesome read. It does start out very slow but it's worth sticking to it. It is full of adventures and mysteries. Quite fabulous.....I definitely want to read more of her.

Unreadable scan.

At over 700 pages, this seems to be the entire novel, but again, barely readable. Google should not offer such a bad copy.

DO NOT ORDER THIS BOOK until you know your version is readable. I just received my order and I'm very disappointed that B&N would allow a book with miniscule print to be sold online! I will have to return it; it's over 300 pages and I will need a magnifiying glass to read it! I've always been very happy with my B&N orders, except for this one. The book is being returned immediately.

I LOVED THIS COVER! THIS IS not ABOUT THE BOOK itself but unfortunately the print in this edition is SO miniscule I, a young person with perfect vision, got a headache straining my eyes to read the print. So unfortunate but such a good read!

I read this book years ago, and it was very lengthy and drawn out. But overall I enjoyed it. It's a true Gothic novel; seemingly every character has sinister motives. And the locations are all dark and mysterious. One of the great mysteries of the novel isn't explained real well. The nefarious characters are contrasted with truly benevolent people, and they all get their just rewards in the end. This book is helpful to read if you plan on reading Northanger Abbey by Jane Austen. Ms. Austen references Udolpho often.
