This is by far one of the best books I’ve read in a really long time. The story draws you in and doesn’t let go. The characters stay with you long after you’ve put the book down, and, if you’re anything like me, you are furious with yourself when you finish because you want it to go on and on.
This is Diane Setterfield’s first and only novel to date. There is talk of a new novel coming next month – I hope so because I love her style. I would recommend The Thirteenth Tale to everyone. Seriously, don’t miss this one!
