5.0 out of 5 stars The Moonstone 9 Feb 2014
By Damaskcat HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A yellow diamond with a curse on it; a young girl trying to choose between two suitors; one of the first detectives in fiction and more twists and turns in the plot than you can shake a stick at not to speak of a huge cast of characters and multiple narrators and you have a fascinating story of theft and murder.

I was surprised how modern this book still is even though it was published over a hundred years ago. I was especially struck by the conversations between Rachel Verrinder and Franklin Blake – her on/off fiancé. I thought the author caught the different voices of his narrators very well indeed and I was never in any doubt who was narrating the story. This is well worth reading even today and it puts some modern crime novelists in the shade.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Moonstone by Wilkie Collins 30 Sep 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A very good read. The mechanism of relating the story through the character's experience and memory is very good. As a negative it is a little too long.

Thought it about time I read something more classic. Thoroughly enjoyed The Moonstone and laughed out loud a few times. Would recommend
