Review: The Keep | Jennifer Egan

With a teaser like this: “In the wilds of Eastern Europe there is a mysterious castle that has stood for hundreds of years, steeped in blood lore and family pride” I just had to read it.

However I was disappointed to find that this ‘gripping and ghostly gothic tale‘ was really not at all gripping. The story line was set up really well and had a lot of promise, however I think it became to surreal and I think Egan complicated the plot unnecessarily.

The ending was hazy and left a lot of unanswered questions, and I hate that!

My rating = **

That’s my four bucks!
