I feel the need to mention it because I can't think of a better way to sum up my opinion of this book to say that it was falling apart as I was reading it and I still finished it.
James, having just graduated from Oxford, moves to London with the intention of becoming a poet. He finds an aristocrat roommate who introduces him to new aspects of the world. Then he suddenly stops writing to his sister, Charlotte, who comes to find him. This book is atmospheric, gothic horror, intriguing even before the paranormal aspects of the story are out in the open. I'd recommend it not only for fantasy fans but for anybody interested in dark 19th century fiction.
