Publisher's Summary

Mystery surrounds Maud Ruthyn in this quintessential gothic novel. Her melancholy father forbids her to ask or inquire anything concerning his misfortunate brother - Silas. From what she can gather, Silas was once a handsome, ambitious young man, but in his later years, he shrank into obscurity. Why? And why is Maud's governess, Madame de la Rougerre, so curious about her father's will? Why is she so cruel? And how will Maude ever find answers from the enigmatic characters that surround her in the spectral castle of Bartram-Hough?

    "Dude narrates adolescent girl's story"
    What made the experience of listening to Uncle Silas [Classic Tales Edition] the most enjoyable?

    This is a very "dark and stormy" night read/listen and I probably should have waited for the appropriate weather to fully appreciate the story. But even on a hot and sunny day, if you are a lover of old gothic tales, this is a good one.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    So here's a weird choice--while this book was written by a man, the main character and narrator is an adolescent girl. So having a dude narrate the book seemed odd. At first I thought maybe there was some framing and that we'd eventually be hearing more from male characters but nope. Mostly our heroine (Maude) and her cousins (Millie and Monica). I eventually got used to it but it made the first bit of the story really hard to get into as my brain adjusted.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I am not sure that all the mysteries were 100% tied up at the end, but in general this was a pretty satisfying tale.
