    1. 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 [...]


    2. I recently read this book looking for one of my characters. Well, she's not mine: I borrowed her. But, having read A Strange Story, I strongly suspect that the namesake author I borrowed her from also borrowed her from Bulwer-Lytton.A Strange Story was originally written as a twenty-something part serial. The result is a rather jumbled overall plot structure, but a definite page-turner anyway, as the author aimed to get readers to come back next week for the next installment. Of course modern re [...]


    3. This author's vehemently flowery prose is an entertainment in itself. It's a story of the supernatural, spun on the familiar armature of the man of science, egotistically rational, who confronts the supernatural / spiritual and is humbled. There's a silly religious agenda in this Victorian novel, but it's good fun nonetheless.


    4. This is another book that's been hanging around in the back of the shelves for a long time. It is divided into two books. The first is a pretty straight forward love story combined with ghosts and the supernatural.Much of the second book is given over to serious discussions about the nature of the supernatural and metaphysics. A large part of the first of the second book is kind of a drag, but after that it picks up again. Bulwer Lytton also makes some keen observations along the way. Realizing [...]


    5. 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.
