Story inside the story

The Thirteenth Tale - Diane Setterfield

I postponed reading this book for a long time because of the some bad reviews. Now I can say that it turned out to be one of the most interesting books I read this year. Maybe because I have a soft spot for stories inside stories. Setterfield knows how to tell a good story. 

I loved Ms. Winter`s memories and it`s just great how I`m still not sure if she told the truth. Besides I wish she was a real writer and I could read her stories. There were some tiny details I wasn`t satisfied with, but they have vanished from my memory. Overall this is a great gothic novel with nice plot twists, secrets and dark passion.
