" This is one of my favorite books. The writing is fantastic, but amazingly enough, extremely accessible. The characters (save Laura Fairlie) are all quite memorable, especially Count Fosco and Ms. Halcombe. The style, told through the voices of various characters appears to be a specialty for Wilkie Collins, and he does it considerably well. There is nothing super-illuminating or "deep" about this book. It is just a great, entertaining, fun story, better than perhaps any "mystery" book written today. "
