His lengthy Gothic novels, such as Uncle Silas (1864), though less highly regarded than his shorter fiction, are nonetheless wonderfully atmospheric. Le Fanu's particular brand of literary horror tends toward the refined, subtle fright rather than the graphic sensationalism of Matthew Gregory Lewis. His work influenced other prominent horror fiction authors, including M. R. James.

Uncle Silas is a romance of terror. Joseph Sheridan Le Fanu lets us know that he expanded it from a short story (length, about fifteen pages) which he wrote earlier in his literary life and published, anonymously, in a magazine-under the tide of A Passage in the Secret History of an Irish Countess. As he does not give the name of the magazine I have not, so far, been able to trace the story.

A tale of murder and greed. This is a fairly straightforward tale of an heiress who is left to the tender mercies of her enigmatic Uncle Silas.

I enjoyed the dark and sinister atmosphere of the novel, and I loved the "lock room mystery". The characters were well portrayed from the slightly "hysterical" young Maud whose narration delivers the story, through to the "over the top" portrayal of the French governess, the creepy Madame.

Loved the beginning the expectation of the novel, but by reaching the middle of the novel when Uncle Silas came to centre stage the momentum seemed to flounder and only again pick up speed towards the end.

Since completing the novel (which was entertaining) I can't help but wonder if the author couldn't have raised the tension further by not portraying Madame as so very unattractive.
Spoiler Alert

This book was a bit tedious. Victorian authors used too many adjectives and run-on sentences. The build up seemed to be never ending, but the climax was very terrifying indeed. Not all loose ends were tied together satsfactorily, such as what was Madame's connection with Dudley and Silas Ruthyn? What happened to Dudley's wife? And the jewelry? Wouldn't the sale of Maud's jewelry have implicated Dudley? Which is how, I assume, he made his way to Australia. Overall, a good gothic tale.
Have only just started it but, it's really good so far. At first glance you'd think Stoker's really influenced Le Fanu's work but, since Le Fanu was first published I forget how many years before Bram Stoker...wow! Genius will out. Trust me people just listen to book and brace yourself.
Here we have poor (actually quite rich), young,meek and naive Maude who just can't seem to stand up to anyone; her father; Madame; her evil cousin nor her uncle. All in all, this tale was quite hard to put down. In the end good prevailed over evil and she lived to tell the story. But getting there is well worth the trip through the pages of Uncle Silas!
For a "long ago" written book, I thought the detail and intrigue was excellent. I enjoyed reading a longer length book as those I have been reading have been shorter and less involved. Couldn't put it down at the 95% read part until I had finished it, a must read.
This is a real rip-snorter of a gothic novel. Eighteen-year-old Maude, whose mother is dead, has been raised by her wealthy father, an adherent to a peculiar Scandinavian science religion. There are dark rumors afoot about the character of Maude's father's brother, the mysterious Uncle Silas, into whose guardianship Maude is entrusted at her father's death. Maude is the only thing standing between the money she will inherit from her father (when she comes of age) and Silas' considerable debt. Laudanum addiction, poison, big old houses with uninhabited wings, a creepy cousin (Silas' son), and an evil French governess: if you like gothic novels, this one's got it all.
Excellent author of suspenseful tales
A good gothic tale. Mysterious characters and motivations. Very nice read for a rainy autumn afternoon curled up with a cup of tea.
