Read for class. I didn't expect to like it, but I LOVED it. There are so many little absurd details and character relationships to keep you reading, even though the "secret" is totally predictable.

I did not think I would enjoy this book, but surprisingly I did. It was quite risky for its time and was a very interesting and entertaining read.

Loved it. Not in that "wow, what a great piece of literature this hundred and fifty year old book is," but more like it's trashy and awesome and doesn't have a chapter 39. It skips right from 38 to 40. Probably because it's more lurid that way.

Also she calls the character Robert George at one point. Which I checked at all sources I could - apparently that's really not the narrator's issue - it's sic.

Lady Audley, girlfriend? Her secret's so big a Lady Sasquatch could use it for all-day protection.
