Typical Wilkie Collins Gothic
on 12 May 2013
If you've read anything by Collins before then you'll know what to expect from Miss or Mrs? This gothic horror, verging on the farcical, has a nasty aftertaste when you realise that the heroine is only fifteen years old.
Collins was, I think, trying to impress the reader with the central character's innocence, but by placing her age so very young, and in not telling the reader her age until very near the conclusion of the story, I felt was completely wrong.
Other than that, the tale was typically Wilkie Collins; gothic horror and good fun!
