I have just finished reading the Woman in White by Wilkie Collins, novel n.2 in my 12 classics challenge.
As I started reading it, I was wondering, was this a mystery ? A romance ? A suspence ? A horror story ? I couldn’t put my mind around it. Well as it turns out, it’s considered the first “sensation” novel. Whatever that means. It was a thrilling book. A page-turner. And to top it all off *sigh* a nice yet unexpected ending. I loved it.
Should I write a plot summary? I think others have done it better than I would. Instead, if you are interested, I leave you here a couple of interesting links: the Wiki* article, another enthusiastic one in the Guardian, and here is the free ebook from Project Gutenberg.
You’re welcome. 🙂
