    " It was a great study for 19th century detective fiction written by female authors. I enjoyed the book but in the last 50 pages I wanted it to be over because of how tragic it was and couldn't help but sympathize with the main character. "

    " I haven't met a Victorian sensation novel that I haven't enjoyed yet and this one was no different in that sense. It's a mystery novel, and though you sort of know what Lady Audley's secret it very early on, there are enough twists and turns to keep you flipping the pages as fast as you can. Unlike other novels of this time period (thinking Of East Lynne and Wilkie Collins's books) I found it difficult to become emotionally involved with any of the characters - Braddon tried to infuse them with French sentimentalities and at other time her characters clearly had the British morality of her time and sometimes this clashed too much within one person to make them believable. I found myself rooting for a minor character (Alicia) and the ending of her story wasn't satisfying enough for me to give this book five stars (I know... I'm picky!). I liked this book in that it reflected the times so perfectly. Apparently British people in the 1860s were obsessed with crimes and sat around in their parlors chatting for hours (likely over tea...) trying to figure out who murdered who and feverishly reading the papers for new tidbits. This book was a bit like that, and it referenced other famous serialized books of the time and famous murder trials. I read the last three hundred pages of the book in one sitting while on an 8 hour flight home despite the amazing movie selection on the plane... so that should say something :-D "

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