March: What I Read

In March, I managed to read a couple of books. Lucky of me, I enjoyed them all!

Northanger Abbey by Jane Austen

Not my favourite Austen novel, but certainly interesting enough to remember. The themes of betrayal, friendship and heroism stick with you. I love Austen’s ability to mock the gothic style. It’s witty, clever and worth a read.

Appointment With Death by Agatha Christie

Should ghastly people die? Poirot disagrees, but his suspects in the case he’s caught up in differ in morality. Christie navigates family angst with the best of the murder genre. Appointment With Death challenges the reader on an intellectual and on a moral level. Christie is master at this game for a good reason.

The Monk by Matthew Lewis

It’s weird, twisted and unforgettable, as it traces the descent of a man into darkness. I enjoyed this novel because of its provactive nature and its willingness to unsettle and disturb the reader. Incest, rape, torture and murder soak the pages of the Monk- so beware.
