Format: Paperback
Bulwer Lytton was a celebrated writer of Victorian England yet today unlike Dickens (for example) he has faded to less prominance. I think this is due to books like "The last Days of Pompeii" which were well regarded in their day but currently are inaccessible to the modern reader due to verbose language descriptions that obscure the plot. However Lytton wasn't always writing in this style and for the post-modern reader "A Strange Story" is a great and epic book that is full of fantasy and romance. It is filled with the captivating gothic style that one might expect from an occult novel yet doesn't insult the intelligence of the reader like many hooror/occult books tend to do.

The story starts out when a young doctor moves to an unamed town in England and he aquanting himself with society. Simultaneous of this a strange vivacious man also has arrived to the area. The whole town is "abuzz" about this man who seems downright other-worldly and the doctor soon befriends him yet is very mistrustful of him... The plot thickens and of course there is a woman that gets in between the two. You will have to read on...

So buy this book and wait for that dark and stormy night... If you are fan of Harry Potter, a fan of English Literature or just looking for something different this book has a lot to offer and isnt too difficult to read. Enjoy this one
