This book had a great plot and was beautifully written. However, it seems to take a while for the story to pick up and when it does take off you feel as though you are going in circles. The best was the end since you moved quick, got to the point, and it is where all the interesting aspects of the plot come out. I would recommend this if you have time to kill but if not you might want to pick up another book.

    more from this reviewer

    Too long by far

    Great plot, great characters, but too many pages of glop. Find an abridged version, or listen to it in your car (except it might put you to sleep).

    Written in a time where things had to be described in full detai

    Written in a time where things had to be described in full detail, now it drags due to the descriptions. I found myself skipping large chunks just to get on with it. With all that being said, I would not recommend this book because the story just doesn't warrant it's classic status, in my opinion.

    Highly Recommended -- Hard to stop reading

    The Woman in White, a spellbinding mystery, is hard to stop reading at times. Written by English author, Wilkie Collins, the book was first published in serial form in 1859 in the New York magazine "Harpers Weekly". It was published in book form in 1860 in England. Even though it was written over 150 years ago, the reader is immediately drawn into the book and its characters. It does not seem dated at all. I highly recommend reading this book which is actually a "classic" book.
