A suitable but not strong October read

A mix of mystery, ghoulish horror, and 19c glamor, mostly told through diaries, of rivalry and obsession and deceit. I re-watched the movie after finishing this, and both leave me unsatisfied, but the selected threads and sympathies are inverted and rearranged such that most of the scenes and storylines the book made vivid as if I remembered them... only exist there.
