    1. Una de las mejores obras de Radcliffe No absolutamente extraordinaria como THE MYSTERIES OF UDOLPHO y THE ITALIAN, pero muy muy buena Mezcla de realismo con las caracter sticas de la literatura g tica y cl sico happy end y moraleja al final Buy bonita obra.


    2. Compared to The Mysteries of Udolpho, The Romance of the Forest has fewer explained ghosts but the few it has are employ well and to great effect One aspect of the story I found very interesting was how Radcliffe handled Adeline s romantic interests Some have described Adeline has cold because she resists from trusting others, and particularly the men who love her, but I found her resistance perfectly reasonable consider how she was deprived of a loving family and betrayed the few friends she th [...]


    3. The first chapters of this gothic romance deal with the misfortunes of a Mr La Motte and his wife He has to run away from the city to avoid being imprisoned for debts In their journey they meet the lovely and quintessential gothic heroine, Adeline, in very strange circumstances, that will be explained in the next chapters.From the beginning there are beatiful landscape descriptions, and an all pervading feeling of sadness, despair, and melancholy The characters are uncertain about their safety, [...]


    4. I have always loved this book, but needed a replacement for my old edition The type is very hard to read in this edition It hurts my eyes if I read longer an a few minutes Very small font.


    5. This is great literature which I love reading To me the story is secondary with primary enjoyment from reading descriptions of scenery and digging into the personalities of characters Violence and sexual content are present when necessary but are only alluded to as necessary events in the plot There is nothing offensive Ratcliffe is a magnificent writer.
