One thought on “A Strange Story

  1. Boniva

    After reading this I find it hard to believe Edward Bulwer Lytton has a bad writing contest associated with his name He was a very skillful writer and a wonderful story teller.This story is told from the perspective of Dr Allan Fenwicke, a rational materialist if there ever was one He publically debunks the spiritualist beliefs of his fellow physician Dr Lloyd, and thereby hastens his colleague s demise Soon after, the Mysterious enters Dr Fenwicke s logical life in the form of the lovely and dr [...]

    A strange story indeed, though quite interesting at times Difficult to read with a modern mindset, a bit of a background in Victorian literature surely is useful.

    F ngt sehr gut an, verliert aber im Laufe des Buches erst Fahrt, dann Stimmung und dann den Faden.
