By far one of my favourite books. Parts gave me chills, such as when the seemingly abandoned ship floats into Whitby.
I may be biased as Whitby is one of my favourite places in the world to go and I visit as often as I can. I know the Abbey and I know the scenery so well that at times I place myself within the story. This is a book I can reread over and over again.

The novel is horror, whereas the film focuses on Romance. The two - whilst both good - are very different beasts.

I highly recommend it.

This has always been one of my favorite books. I've read it several times throughout the years and always seem to find something new to live about it but the reason I was initially drawn in was the visuals that I would get while reading. Though lengthy and somewhat boring, the descriptive passages paint beautiful pictures to go along with the narrative.

This book has been sitting on my shelf forever! I have heard before that it is a slow read so I haven't been in the mindset yet to read it. I will have to finally give it a try soon.
