Sure...if you're a Tarzan fan
No...not a top drawer reader, and his very audible breath intake was annoying
Not really, unless you are spellbound by cultural aspects of 19th century England. The story and premise are lame, and reflect a psychological naivete of the author that I just can't swallow as a 21st century intellectual.
If you can totally suspend disbelief, and enjoy the richness of the narrative, the story is worthwhile. I will never read it or listen to it again. And I felt a sense of relief when it was done. If hadn't been for the excellent performances, I never would have completed it. I had The Moonstone on my list of must reads. It's relegated now to the bottom of my list. Hopefully I'll never have to get to it...
Collins may be the father of the modern crime/mystery novel but he'll certainly never make it into my list of fabulous 19th century British writers.
