The Mysteries of Udolpho - Ann Radcliffe It started out halfway decently, but by the end of the first half, I discovered that nothing was good about this book, so I quit reading it. If there was a little more spunk from Emily and a lot more suspense, I probably could have continued to read it, but due to the sore lack of those elements, it was futile trying to read it. At least I got a few more jokes involving Northanger Abbey.
