Audio Book Summary

The Woman in White is an epistolary novel written by Wilkie Collins in 1859, serialized in 1859-1860, and first published in book form in 1860. It is considered to be to the first mystery novel, and is widely regarded as one of the first (and finest) in the genre of 'sensation novels'....

The Woman in White is also an early example of a particular type of Collins narrative in which several characters in turn take up the telling of the story. This creates a complex web in which readers are unsure which narrator can, and cannot, be trusted. Collins used this technique in his other novels, including The Moonstone. This technique was copied by other novelists, including Bram Stoker, author of Dracula (1897), although by the end of the 19th century the technique was considered "old-fashioned".

    Good story. A little drawn out, but I suppose that part of the older novels. Good listen, good narrative.

    Like many readers I do enjoy the older classics but this was a long winded read. Did enjoy the story but found it sometimes difficult to follow,and had to rewind a few times. Many options as to who did what and when before it started to become clear. Good narration. I did enjoy the book but do not think this a book I would retread in the future.

    The plot is very enjoyable but the writing style is extremely drawn out and slow moving. The characters are believable for the period. The narration was superb. I love the old classics and this is definitely one of them!!!

    Still a few hours away from the end, but this is a pretty darn good book. I guess it\'s a case of what\'s old is new again or something. Well worth the listen though.
