    " Now makes up one on the list of the few Victorian novels (<5) I have not enjoyed reading. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tricia | 2/10/2014

    " This was a great book that had me eagerly reading on the edge of my seat. Since it's not a modern book, I was not sure which way the plot was going to go, and I was really eager to find out what the author was going to torture the characters with next. A really well done suspense with a gently humourous authorial voice. "

    " struggling with this one... "

    " I remembered this much more fondly from my undergraduate days and though I'd read it because of the connection to the case referred to in The Suspicions of Mr. Whicher, but it was not so great. Serialized, it often got away from Braddon with lots of inconsistancies. Lady Audley was born poor and abandoned by her husband when he realizes he can't provide for her or their son. She deserts son the her drunken father and re-invents herself as a governess. She meets rich Mr. Audley and marries. Her husband re-surfaces, rich from Australia to reveal her. She pushes him in a well and then sets fire to a building, hoping to kill the man searching for her husband (the narrator). She's caught in the end. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Scott Harris | 2/1/2014

    " I really enjoyed this old but rarely recalled classic. The story is rich with evident foreshadowing and plays a few tricks of withheld revelations. The first 2/3rds seems highly predictable but almost speeds too quickly to that conclusion, leaving way for several other less expected outcomes. Braddon must have had a blast writing this story, adding mystery upon mystery. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bruce | 1/22/2014

    " A Victorian pot-boiler, which resembles Wilkie Collins' work, and was contemporaneous with it. Very melodramatic and overwrought, but enjoyable nonetheless. Rather misogynistic in parts, which is interesting, since it was written by a woman. The emotional relationships seem rather facile, except for that between Robert Audley and Talboys "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Brooke | 1/14/2014

    " If you like Victorian sensation literature you'll like this book. Bigamy, false identity, mad houses, murder, arson...it has it all. Plus all the good people end up living idyllically in a cottage in the end. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kara Yoh | 1/9/2014

    " I thought this was an excellent suspense novel. I could guess some of what happened, but other twists were very surprising and I had trouble putting the book down at certain points. Definitely a good book for anyone who enjoys suspense/mystery novels. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joanna | 12/6/2013

    " I really enjoyed this. The writing style is not for everyone of course - very wordy, with lots of description, and digressions to meditate on characters' moral fiber. The plot is incredibly modern though - the basic outlines of it could be transferred to a modern mystery novel with no trouble. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lisa | 11/29/2013

    " This book was great! If you liked Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier you would probably like this too! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michael Vielhaber | 11/27/2013

    " Nicely gothic... all the way back to 19th century Britain "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bybee | 11/13/2013

    " Wow! That was a wild ride! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kristin | 11/3/2013

    " Loved every bit of it until the ending. :( "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bonnie Jeanne | 9/19/2013

    " Lady Audley's Secret by Mary Elizabeth Braddon (2000) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Christine | 5/22/2013

    " For lovers of truly Victorian novels only. Lady Audley was too soon for her time. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Meagan | 12/31/2012

    " More of a difficult read, but very unexpected ending! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kristina Black | 6/15/2012

    " Good! The big things are not as predictable as I thought! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rachael Bermingham | 12/27/2011

    " Great Gothic stuff. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sophie | 12/26/2011

    " The twists and turns had really got me going. The fragile and lovely persona of Lady Audley has made the story even more interesting! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Claire | 7/11/2011

    " Another reading for uni. Surprisingly modern, witty and lively. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Maya | 6/16/2011

    " I found myself wishing Dickens wrote this. It could have been so much more. That said, I did enjoy it for what it was. The passages detailing Lady Audley's infinite beauty were difficult to stomach many times. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kirsten | 5/28/2011

    " I enjoyed this 19th century "sensational novel", although it didn't measure up to Wilkie Collins (The Moonstone and The Woman in White). "
