  • I have not read William Harrison Ainsworth yet, but after hearing an OTR (Old Time Radio) program, (The Weird Circle- January 21, 1945) I was ready to compare.

  • It's pretty hard to have much to say about this extremely short book. It's a classic of gothic literature and I was curious about it, so I picked it up.

Coz this story is going nowhere. He could have at least developed the werewolf characters a little bit instead of focusing on a love story.
