[Novel] The Moonstone (Wilkie Collins)

The Moonstone

The Moonstone is an interesting work in that it’s both a Victorian and a mystery novel, and pretty much offers the best sides of both worlds with Jane Austin like drama and Agatha Christie like mystery.

Positive:
Negative:
Beautiful, old-fashioned prose
A couple of parts might feel too slow
Interesting, likable, relatively profound characters
Though the mystery is good, it doesn’t exactly blow your mind
An enthralling plot full of twists and surprises
A solid story that’s based around a pretty crafty mystery
