    Epub Wilkie Collins Ò The Moonstone ePUB ´ Ò moonstone kindle, The Moonstone PDFEPUB The Moonstone generally recognized as the first detective novel despite the appearance of The Notting Hill Mystery a few years before is not only a work of historical importance but also a work that transcends the genre it created in the artfulness of its plotting in its compassionate depiction of servants and in its enlightened resolution of the theme of the British Empire its crimes and their consequencesNot that I wish to minimize its historical importance The Moonst

    Epub Wilkie Collins Ò The Moonstone ePUB ´ Ò moonstone kindle, The Moonstone PDFEPUBThe Moonstone is known as the first detective novel and it's a cracking one You can see things invented here that were directly borrowed by future writers Holmes' overconfidence and his use of London urchins as agents Agatha Christie's exploration of narrative reliability as opposed to Poe's Dupin which was the first detective story I know we're splitting hairsAnd if the mystery's not enough for you how about mysterious Oriental cultures? Romance? Quicksand? Opium? This is a ludicrously entertaining book almost on the level of Count of Monte Cristo for sheer kicks Things I Was Super On The Watch For When I Was A Kid And It Turns Out They Are Not Actually Things Alligators Amnesia Chloroform soaked rags Razors in apples Steamrollers QuicksandIt shares with Collins' other masterpiece The Woman in White a preoccupation with narrative from di

    Epub Wilkie Collins Ò The Moonstone ePUB ´ Ò moonstone kindle, The Moonstone PDFEPUBI was torn between giving two stars and three stars to Wilkie Collins's The Moonstone a book T S Eliot called the first the longest and the best of modern English detective novels Longest is perhaps the operative word here reminding one of Samuel Johnson's comment speaking in his case of Milton's Paradise Lost that none ever wished it longer The Moonstone's length in the end is its chief and perhaps only major failing Large chunks of the novel seem to drag on and on with few advancements being made to the plot in the process The latter parts of the section narrated by Gabriel Betteredge chief servant to the Verinder household and almost all of Drusilla Clack's section really could have used some judicious editingI suspect though that long after I forget what a slog much of The Moonstone was to get through I'll remember its many charms Betteredge is a particularly fun narrator given his obsession with Daniel Defoe's Robinson Crusoe a book he treats as a cross between the Holy Bible
