I was attracted to THE MOONSTONE after reading (Hearing) Wilkie Collins" THE WOMAN IN WHITE. What is fascinating to me is how a book written over 140 years ago can be read eaily without footnotes to explain the significance of the events of the time. The characters and the action brought me into that time period with ease.
I plan to sownload every Wilkie Collins book that is available in Audible.com
The use of different narrators was like witnesses at a trial. Each witness had a biased viewpoint, but were there more sinister goings on and hidden by the narrators? Who really married and lived happily ever after? What were the relationships between the threesome that lived happily ever after? Were they more involved in the murders and the accidents that befelled those that got in the way? Collins wove a real thriller that forces us to re-hear and to re-visit the narrators for clues.
