    1. No disrespect, but I struggled to make much sense of this mess. An ok story ruined with gibberish dialect. I hate this trend that many utilized throughout the Gothic period, which otherwise is one of my favourite eras of literature.


    2. Very difficult to understand as it's written with a severe Scottish brogue. From what I got it's the story about a man's father who has to make a deal with the devil to pay his rent a second time- he had paid it but the Laird he paid (who was also thought to be the devil) died suddenly and his money was unaccounted for.
