    eBook ¸ ePub The Dead Secret ã HardcoverFree ↠ Wilkie Collins The Dead SecretAfter The Woman in White this is my second try with Wilkie Collins While I became his admirer after my first experience of his writing in second my interest in his novels only increased further I have already made a purchase of his classic The Moonstone and soon I am going to start my journey with its characters and plot for having a third time experience of Collins What I find most interesting about his novels is the way in which he advances his story By the time I started and read the first few pages of this book I had already made my mind to turn its pages till the last In my opinion this is the predominant feature that I have found in Collins writing which ma

    eBook ¸ ePub The Dead Secret ã HardcoverFree ↠ Wilkie Collins The Dead Secret The Dead Secret isn't as good as the string of novels which immediately followed it including The Woman in White and Armadale but it's definitely worth reading with a good measure of suspense and action as well as complex characters particularly Sarah Leeson the woman who hides the dead secret of the title and Rosamond Frankland the woman who discovers it

    eBook ¸ ePub The Dead Secret ã HardcoverFree ↠ Wilkie Collins The Dead SecretVeering between extremes of melodrama and sentimentality stocked with unidimensional characters The Dead Secret still takes about 140 pages to get off the ground Reviewers of the day weren't crazy about it either This was a practice run for The Woman in White so save yourself the effort and just read that one Unless you're really really into Victorian gothic cheese

    eBook ¸ ePub The Dead Secret ã HardcoverFree ↠ Wilkie Collins The Dead SecretNot as interesting as the Moonstone I found this story a bit overly sentimental melodramatic and overly drawn out He makes us wade through all sorts of uninteresting scenes and conversation before finally revealing the terrible secret of which if you hadn't figured it out by then you're a little dense
