The Thirteenth Tale - Diane Setterfield So good! I completely devoured this book--it was a definite page turner and I had serious trouble putting it down for any length of time. It's just a great story with so many elements: part bildungsroman, part mystery, part psychological thriller, but also definitely under that dubious umbrella of "literary fiction". I don't know if I found it creepy the way a lot of other reviewers described it, but it was definitely suspenseful and very reminiscent of gothic classics like [b:Rebecca|12873|Rebecca|Daphne du Maurier|http://d.gr-assets.com/books/1327871977s/12873.jpg|46663].

I found myself solving the mystery at about the same time the narrator did (and I'm usually terrible at figuring out whodunit), so that made parts of it a little predictable, but the whole ending was done so well that I can't complain too much about that.
