    " 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! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brittany Flores | 1/19/2014

    " Awesomely great. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Becca | 1/15/2014

    " Wish you could give half stars! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Pam Modricker | 1/11/2014

    " Really great mystery with lots of great characters. Hard to put down. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Erica | 1/7/2014

    " Good sensationalized mystery. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Teresa Kendall | 12/11/2013

    " Lady Audley's Secret is one of my all-time favorite books! It is the quintessential Victorian sensational novel. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Vaughn | 12/2/2013

    " God thie main character was nuts. Another sensation novel, it's awsome because...you'll see. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lauri | 11/25/2013

    " How did I go so long without knowing about this author - the book was terrific! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kristina Black | 11/13/2013

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

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Gillian | 5/23/2013

    " Predictable & far too long. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tiffany | 4/22/2013

    " A good old fashioned intriguing mystery. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Ekaterina Egorova | 9/16/2012

    " 19th century chick lit, nothing more, unfortunately. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Susie | 7/19/2012

    " Took a while to read as it's written in very small letters and never-ending paragraphs but made it! Good little mystery but long on needless descriptions. But I forgive the author, whom I'm sure was simply writing in a style that was popular back in the Victorian days! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ursula Dubosarsky | 6/21/2012

    " Wilkie Collins' "The Woman in White" was my favourite book when I was twelve - and how I would have loved this too! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tyler | 6/13/2012

    " A good plot for a sensation novel, with a devil of a wife who likes to kill her husbands. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Madeleine | 4/28/2012

    " Nice, trashy read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bobby | 11/15/2011

    " Inventive, sensational and bitingly funny. I was intrigued by this story even though my University lecturer had already 'spoiled' it for me. Read it! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Pat | 5/20/2011

    " Love these old victorian mysteries "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nicola | 5/18/2011

    " this was a fantastic book - especially considering that it was written in 1853 (or somewhere close). It was abit long, but well worth the wait. Great to take on a weeks holiday, as I only had to carry 2 books and not thousands! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Allison | 4/11/2011

    " I judged this book by its cover, so to speak, and avoided reading it for years because it looked boring. I'm glad I finally gave in and gave it a whirl. It was fun to see an 1800s take on mystery and intrigue. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sarah | 4/6/2011

    " A little too pulpy/melodramatic for my taste. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bobby | 2/23/2011

    " Inventive, sensational and bitingly funny. I was intrigued by this story even though my University lecturer had already 'spoiled' it for me. Read it! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Darcy | 2/1/2011

    " A great look into perceptions of madness and the women question in Victorian England. A fun read too!
    "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shannon | 1/23/2011

    " Classic Victorian romantic lit with a too good to be true ending. It was also highly predictable, but enjoyable all the same. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kathy | 1/17/2011

    " Wow!! This really kept me turning the pages. A great romantic mystery! Just my style...right up there with :"The Woman in White" by Wilkie Collins. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Karie Anne | 12/24/2010

    " The book began to drag about 3/4 of the way in, but it was overall a good read if you enjoy period pieces. "
