This novel is both intriguing and disturbing at the same time. Ambrosio's character is one to be pitied and learned from. His one fatal flaw-hubris-ultimately led to his downfall. Following his descention into hell is a most disturbing experience for the reader.

'The Monk' has all the elements of a good adventure, including good twists and the ability to shock and surprise, which I did not expect for a book written in 1796. Highly recommended.

'The Monk' starts out slow, but once you get into it it takes you on a whirlwind of vanity, piousness, deception and the failings of humanity while at the same time leaves you with faith for the greater good.

This book was great. The beginning is a little slow, but once the plot falls into place the ending will shock you.

this was an interesting book, however by reading simply the back cover all was to predictable, except for Matilda.
