This Victorian literature novel is still considered one of the first Mystery novels in the genre.
By telling bits of the story from different character's points of view, we learn as much about the narrators as the plot itself.
The story is told from the viewpoint of a number of characters, and the writing style varies accordingly.

I was disappointed. The book is too long by half. The final solution is unrealistic. The main characters are inconsistent and do not inspire any concern or identification. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Susan Pientka
