I read this for a book group who's objective was to read mysteries. This was their first choice, as it is heralded as the first 'who done it' written. It is filled with unique characters who you very much get to know.
Several members of the group were put off by the Victorian language and style, sometime with explanations that go on a unnecessary length and are a bit flowery. I however was a fan. Collins was a contemporary of Charles Dickens and there a similarities in the writing style.
A very engaging story, with twists and turns of plot. Characters who are distinct and interesting.
