The most wonderful book I have ever read,
This review is from: The Woman in White (Penguin Popular Classics) (Paperback)
I took a few pages to click into the Victorian narrative but once I was into it, it gripped from start to finish. This book has the most wonderfully drawn characters and because it switches narrators several times ( Wilkie Collins does this to great effect also in 'The Moonstone') you are just getting lulled into the perspective of one person, when you are then gently jolted and led along by another.
If you want a book with love, romance, mystery and an undercurrent of the sinister running through it I promise you will not be disappointed. You will then be so hooked by Wilkie Collin's writing style that you will want to devour the rest of his books immediately.

I totally agree and i am now a lover of Wilkie Collins. I love the Victorian language after the bad spelling and shortening of words in todays language. This review puts so well what was in my mind and sums it all up superbly. I am now working my way through the rest of Wilkie Collins books.
