Product description

Review

An excellent sensation novel with some fascinating social history. Hooray for Oxford World's Classics for reprinting it. (Harriet Devine's Blog)

this book is a cracking good story exciting, twisty, thought-provoking and very unputdownable. On the evidence of Jezebel's Daughter, Collins was more than just a one (or two!) trick pony, and Im definitely up for reading more of his work! (Karen Langley, Kaggsy's Bookish Ramblings)

a lot to enjoy (Lyn Baines, I Prefer Reading) --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

About the Author

English novelist and playwright Wilkie Collins was a prolific writer with a body of work comprising thirty novels, over sixty short stories, more than a dozen plays, and a wide range of non-fiction pieces. Collins is best known for his novels The Woman in White, an early sensation novela genre combining shocking gothic horror with everyday domestic settingsand The Moonstone, which is credited as one of the first modern mystery novels. In the 1850s Collins met Charles Dickens and the two struck up a friendship, which lead to Collins becoming a frequent contributor to Dickens s journals Household Words and All the Year Round. Many of his stories have been adapted for film, including Basil, A Terribly Strange Bed, The Moonstone and The Woman in White. Collins died in 1889 at the age of 65. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

Brilliant story. It started off with plenty of excellent and well-drawn characters which involved me immediately. I had only read one previous Wilkie Collins, The Woman in White, and for me this was far better, in fact I could hardly put it down. In fact it was thrillingly suspenseful, and I'm sure it put my blood pressure up! Occasionally I had to put the book down just to have a rest from the excitement. I have downloaded four more of Wilkie Collins, but right now am having an interlude with Anthony Trollope, a gentle and pleasant read, while I recover!

One of the easiest to read of the Wilkie Collins' novels. It was a little predictable but nevertheless a good mystery and intriguing. As with all his books, Wilkie Collins, always manages to provide a psychological insight into something or other. One of his insights in this book was about gratitude. He cleverly drops these gems into the text. Often they are so profound that you find yourself sitting back and contemplating.

The story moves along at a good pace and has a satisfying ending. The wicked get their comeuppance. A well told story of crimes and punishment.

I have read a lot of his novels, but I found this one boring and highly predictable. The story could easily have been halved.

A fast moving plot, that starts innocuously with a widow inheriting her husband's business, but which proceeds to take us on a journey of poisoning, madness and megalomania in true gothic style. I loved this book. The characters are well-drawn, the plot twists and turns, and the descriptions of places like laboratories, the madhouse and the deadhouse are so realistic as to be tangible. Quite a short novel as well - only 300 or so pages, but quite possibly the most exciting 300 pages I have ever read! Incidentally, the Jezebel's Daughter referred to in the title has quite a minor role in the story. She is really merely a curb on her mother's excesses. A brilliant read!

More similar in style and content to Collins's Woman in White than Moonstone, it doesn't quite capture the gothic mystery and dread of White. Decent page turner but very predictable; the more I read of Collins the more I am convinced that The Woman in White is a class apart from the rest.
