The Castle of Otranto (Barnes & Noble Library of Essential Reading): A Gothic Story

The Castle of Otranto (Barnes & Noble Library of Essential Reading): A Gothic Story - Horace Walpole, Annie Pecastaings Struggling with what to rate this. It wasn't what you would call good, and it certainly wasn't scary, but it was unintentionally (and sometimes intentionally) hilarious.

Basically the author is a bored rich dude who wrote this for lolz, and it kind of shows, because it's everything and the kitchen sink, usually all at once; there's whole chapters of people just chasing each other around the countryside; everyone turns out to have a secret relative, be a secret relative, or both, and it ends with both a wedding AND a funeral. Nothing is foreshadowed.

Taken in the spirit meant, it's pretty entertaining.
