    eBook famulantenaustausch.de È The Lancashire Witches PDF/EPUB Ò The Lancashire lancashire epub, witches mobile, The Lancashire epub, The Lancashire Witches EpubOne day your grandkids will be startled to discover that things like witches vampires and werewolves used to be figures of horror rather than sexy romance Before they accuse you of having a fit of alzheimers you can show this this book The witches in Ainsworth's The Lancashire Witches are exactly what you might picture a spooky witch to be old crones that ride around on broomsticks perform blood sacrifices to Satan and put hexes on people Besides that bit of awesomeness the book is very fast paced considering its age and has enough Satanic shenanigans to keep most horror fans entertained

    eBook famulantenaustausch.de È The Lancashire Witches PDF/EPUB Ò The Lancashire lancashire epub, witches mobile, The Lancashire epub, The Lancashire Witches EpubMy goodness it took me a month to read this But then it was a very long 19th century book that I mostly read a few pages off before I fell asleep at night I was a bit wearing starting this after the last Scott I read being so disappointing but this was not at all This was a wonderful Gothic story with witches both good and bad ghostly monks and power hungry nobles Unlike the Scott so much happened there was a preuel establishing the witches family and then their troubles in the time of King James I It was a wonderful Gothic novel with lots of agency for the women even the good ones I enjoyed it so much I returned to the oxfam where I found it and bought the other three novels by Ainsworth Unfortunately most

    eBook famulantenaustausch.de È The Lancashire Witches PDF/EPUB Ò The Lancashire lancashire epub, witches mobile, The Lancashire epub, The Lancashire Witches Epub The Lancashire Witches is my first Ainsworth novel and what is touted as one of his better efforts It's an absorbing historical romance whose plot is propelled by fantasy unless of course you believe that witches of the 16th century truly communed with the devil and were capable of casting malicious spells And that's what makes the novel hard to put down because by the time we're deep into its middle chapters we are believers and fearful ones at thatAinsworth's prose is often dense occasionally poetic and generally fairly typical of Victorian era writing but it successfully pulls you into the world of his characters and their time period One's vocabulary as regards 16th century words is definitely challenged a nice bonus

    eBook famulantenaustausch.de È The Lancashire Witches PDF/EPUB Ò The Lancashire lancashire epub, witches mobile, The Lancashire epub, The Lancashire Witches EpubThese notes were made in 1984 I read this title in the undated but definitely 19th century Edition de Luxe published by GH Howell From the freuency with which I see its title I think this must have been one of Ainsworth's popular works and indeed in terms of a working narrative it's one of his better ones The nineteenth century scholarhistorian tone is nearly gone he pops up sometimes but he doesn't do a travelogue and the novel is based on the assumption that witchcraft did exist in fact and that the elder heroine Alice Nutter had sold herself to the devil As usual with WHA we are firmly located in place and time; the whole is located in the area of Lancashire near Preston; the opening section is set in the 1536 uprising when Henry VIII dismantled the monasteries and the rest of the story takes place several generations later in the reign of James VI I who was of course very interested in witchcraft and who duly makes his appearance in the last book No

    eBook famulantenaustausch.de È The Lancashire Witches PDF/EPUB Ò The Lancashire lancashire epub, witches mobile, The Lancashire epub, The Lancashire Witches EpubIt took me several weeks to get past the introduction in fact seven years passed before I read the last few pages of it Which seems the result of witchcraft itself as seven is one of those witchy numbersI'm glad I picked this book up again I uite enjoyed it It was like reading a Shakespeare play in book form and I love Shakespeare The part with King James really dragged for me but the rest of the books after the intro were really good It was a bit odd how twice in the whole book it goes from third person to first person And it also had a tendency to go from past to present tense But overall I likes this book uite a lot

    eBook famulantenaustausch.de È The Lancashire Witches PDF/EPUB Ò The Lancashire lancashire epub, witches mobile, The Lancashire epub, The Lancashire Witches EpubMy mum bought me this book last year to remind of home I'm from Lancashire it's in my blood to love the Pendle witches and I even wanna write my own fictional book on the events I've only just gotten round to reading it because I had an idea to write my 15000 word dissertation on witches in Victorian lit Yeah I'm thinking of doing that This was interesting Ainsworth's portrayal of the witches was really fascinating He relied heavily on stereotypes you know witches on broomsticks throwing stuff into a cauldron and chanting etc etc etc I really didn't mind this to be honest it was typical but also fun I think the witches were the best part of this book which I'm assuming you'd expect to be all 580 pages but no A lot of this was just waffle and not the good kind This definitely could have been cut down specifically removing all the irrelevant passages It took me SoooOOOOooOOO long
