Yorkshire Moors Bores.

I'm surprised to read that while Diane Setterfield's debut novel, The Thirteenth Tale, is doing good and has sold 70k copies in the US in the first week of its launch, British sales have been far from remarkable at only 600 copies sold in that same week.

Is it because the British are sick of reading about the exploits of crazy women running about in the rain on the moors of Yorkshire? Do gothic novels bore the pants off people? Aw, come on... Jane Eyre and Rebecca weren't so bad, were they?

  1. Erm..I actually loved Jane Eyre, and who can forget the haunting first lines of Rebecca?

  2. I love the Bronte sisters! (I blame mum.) I'm ashamed to admit though I've never finished reading Rebecca. Must attempt that again one day.

  4. You should! It's very well-written. I'm jealous.
