This quite forgotten book is marvelous!!! Written in the 50s provides a wonderful psychological insight for the time of a close community set in rural England. Very unexpected the final (and it is quite difficult to surprise me). Absolutely to read!

Another golden age mystery book... sorry I‘m guilty of loving them. Apart for the main character which is the personification of the foolish woman type, the plot maintains the suspence e the final twist is quite unexpected. To read when you are alone at home and there is a storm outside, the atmosphere will be perfect

What a shame that this book is not available in English!!! The author has done a wonderful research in the archives of one of the most famous Italian asylum which was one of the last to be closed in the 1980s. 13 people (someone mad someone not) are revealed in all their tragic appearance as people and not only as patients

Just finished to re-read it: it‘s like returning to an old friendly place that you like but not visited for a while 💖

A golden age crime novel set in England after WWII, recently rediscovered. I love the atmosphere, apparently undertone but with many unexpected twists.

Neo-gothic novel in the tradition of Italian gothic romance (like Fogazzaro if you know him), I think they made a movie out of it, I don‘t know how because it‘s a sort of subtle psychological tale with very little action. It‘s your book if you like when you stay awake at night listening to all sort of noises wondering of monsters and conspiracies...I know that this does not sound very appealing but I liked the book very much

All Hallows' Eve: A Novel | Charles Williams

A lost masterpiece...lost for a good reason!!! Probably I‘m not mystical enough to appreciate this book... I read a commentary which compared All Hallows‘Eve with The turn of the screw...probably the reviewer was stone drunk, no comparable

I liked Kate summerscale style, clear and straight, well-documented, but I struggled to finish this book. Too gaunt and not so fluid

I liked it even more than “everything that I never told you”. The American suburbs are well described and I liked the small nuances of each character. Remind me slightly (even-I know- if it is not comparable) of a Margaret Atwood without a dystopian view

RaimeyGallant I enjoyed this one, too. And welcome to Litsy! #LitsyWelcomeWagon Some of us put together Litsy tips to help new Littens navigate the site.

Sharp Objects: A Novel | Gillian Flynn

I didn‘t like “gone girl” but I decided to give Gillian Flynn a second chance... Bad move! The book is predictable, shallow in depicting emotions and psychiatric disturbances. Sort of a bad-style copy of Patricia highsmith (who is unrivaled anyway)
