Dragonwyck
Dragonwyck | Anya Seton
12 posts | 20 read | 24 to read
There was, on the Hudson, a way of life such as this, and there was a house not unlike Dragonwyck. In the spring of 1844 the Wells family receives a letter from a distant relative, the wealthy landowner Nicholas Van Ryn. He invites one of their daughters for an extended visit to his Hudson Valley estate, Dragonwyck. Eighteen-year-old Miranda, bored with the local suitors and her commonplace life on the farm, leaps at the chance for escape. She immediately falls under the spell of Nicholas and his mansion, mesmerized by its Gothic towers, flowering gardens, and luxurious lifestyleunaware of the dark, terrible secrets that await. Anya Seton masterfully tells the heart-stopping story of a remarkable woman, her extraordinary passions, and the mystery that resides in the magnificent hallways of Dragonwyck.

Well. “Dragonwyck” was... rather an odd little book. Some Gothic themes, murder, abuse, sociopathy, and I only like three characters (none of whom were carrying the story.

Starting book number five, “The Invisible Library”, for the #24in48 #readathon!

I‘m a lightweight. I‘m old. I can‘t pull all-nighters. I‘m calling it a night on book number four, “Dragonwyck”.

I‘ll admit that I chose this book because I loved the 1946 film with Vincent Price and Gene Tierney... but I don‘t recall Miranda being this much of an idiot. 😒 Poor, sweet, stupid baby...

Gothic, historical. Two words that reeled me in.

A gothic tale, set in early 18th century America, about the “romance” between a young country girl and her much older, wealthy, and urbane (also psychopathic) cousin. It has shades of Jane Eyre and Rebecca, but I felt it dragged quite a bit.

I wanted to love Dragonwyck but I couldn't bring myself to do so. The imagery kept me from bailing whilst the storyline dragged. Not until the end did it predictably pick up and that, my friends, is not enough to sate this reader's hunger for a gothic inspired novella!
