This is, by far, the best book I've ever read. I read it about 7 years ago in college and loved it. I just re-read it and absolutely loved it again! Everyone that I've recommended it to has loved it as well. It is a book to read and keep forever.

This is one of my favorite books. It's a Gothic Romance written by Lewis, who at the time was an 18 yr old member of Parliament. He wrote the book in about 10 weeks. If you like books by Ann Radcliffe and/or Christopher Marlowe's Dr Faustus. You NEED to read this!!

This novel predates everything I have read. I am a sucker for ancient text, or anything written in the 17th century. Lewis' language topples over shakespeare and leaves anne rice in the gutter. I recommend this book for anyone interested in dark subjects, whitchcraft, evil religion, devil incarnate, and all the fervid details that make you quiver.

After adjusting to the writing style, this twisted tale takes off and doesn't seem to slow down even after you've finished reading. A few twists and turns, a level of depravity that can shock even the jaded readers of today, it is a tragedy that such creativity and warped imagination is in such short supply these days. No doubt, The Monk is a prized title in nearly every horror fan's library.

It is a very good book and one of the best ive ever read. It is diffenently a must for anyone who likes horror. I admire Matthew G. Lewis for coming up with the entire tale at such a young age.

I was surprised by how this book took a turn from what I was expecting. The more I read, the more I appreciated the story. I had to push myself at times to finish it because it was difficult with the spellings but it was worth it.

A deliciously salacious and fast paced bit of gothic literature. Not the genre defining stuff of Walpole and Radcliffe, but a bit of late eighteenth century trashy reading. Well worth the time.

This is by far the best book I have ever read. The novel has a very gothic theme and is super creepy at times. I highly recommend this book if you can enjoy a haunting tale.

It's not a book for the faint of heart. It hits all the elements of a good hardcore Goth: dungeons, torture chambers, demons, incest, murder, The Wondering Jew, evil priests and nuns, you name it. The book is wrapped in mystery until the very end where all is revealed. You must divorce yourself from reality to read this. It's that fantastical, it deals with archetypes rather than real people which adds to its appeal.

I can't believe that the writer was 19 at the time he penned this and finished it in 10 weeks.
