    eBook The Moonstone ePUB ´ ï beechesgardenservicescouk moonstone ebok, 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 conseuencesNot that I wish to minimize its historical importance The Moonstone is the first—certainly the first fully formed—detective novel and it contains within that great “first” a number of little “firsts” the first English country house mystery featuring a large guest list of suspects the first crew of bumbling local policemen mucking about in the evidence the first detective genius distinguished by an unlikely hobby the first small suggestive phy

    eBook The Moonstone ePUB ´ ï beechesgardenservicescouk moonstone ebok, The Moonstone PDFEPUB45 stars rounding up for this 1868 Victorian era mystery often considered the first English language detective novel Wilkie Collins spins a literary web that starts out slowly but then inexorably pulls you in; I finished the last half of the book in one extended readathon He has a gift for writing as vastly different characters who each take a turn telling or writing their part of the story and a droll sometimes very sarcastic sense of humorIn 1799 a British soldier steals a large yellow diamond from a Hindu statute in India ruthlessly killing three Indian men protecting the statue and earning himself a curse from one of them in the process He gets a bad reputation as a result and is shunned by his extended family in England So when he dies he leaves the Moonstone to his niece Rachel whose mother refused to receive him as a guest in her home knowing he's leaving her not only a 30000 pou

    eBook The Moonstone ePUB ´ ï beechesgardenservicescouk moonstone ebok, 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? uicksand? 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 uicksandIt shares with Collins

    eBook The Moonstone ePUB ´ ï beechesgardenservicescouk moonstone ebok, 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 mu

    eBook The Moonstone ePUB ´ ï beechesgardenservicescouk moonstone ebok, The Moonstone PDFEPUBThough Wilkie Collins was long time friends with Charles Dickens they had drastically different writing styles and suffered some rough patches in their relationship In a letter to someone Dickens talks about his thoughts on The Moonstone The construction is wearisome beyond endurance and there is a vein of obstinate conceit in it that makes enemies of readers What the heck? Who's this Dickens guy anyway? What the heck does he know about writing? SheeshI don't know what book the vaunted Mr Charles Dickens read but the book I read was absolutely wonderful It was hilarious entertaining smart and everything else that makes a good novel Beyond
