Reviews - What do customers think about Ecstasy?

Very well-done love story  Sep 10, 2000
I love discovering little-known books like this. "Ecstasy" is a nicely wrought mood piece from Dutch author Louis Couperus (1863-1923), who at present could hardly be more obscure among English-speaking audiences. A delicate and enigmatic tale of a young widow and her relationship with a restless, cosmopolitan fellow, this novel makes no innovations in the art of fiction, but it is notable for its psychological acuteness; the author is very good at describing his characters' internal conflicts. Some readers will have trouble putting up with the baroque flourishes (this is one of those 19th Century novels where the characters rarely talk like human beings), but I quite enjoyed it.
