Uneven story, really well read

I love Wilkie Collins's stories. They plunge you into a whole different world and keep you wanting to know what happens next. At the same time, I have to admit this is not one of his best (there's an excellent version of the Moonstone read by Peter Jeffrey on Audible). There's still a lot to enjoy and Samuel West does a great job of keeping you going through the bits that are not so good. I'm left with a few very vivid portrayals and descriptions of places and a rather uneasy feeling towards the protagonist.

Not my favourite Collins

I am a Wilkie Collins fan, but perhaps this is the book I have liked the least. Not the usual lightness of touch and humour he uses, except for one excellent character, Mr McGlue the doctor. Feels quite long and hard going despite the short length, though still a well crafted book with the usual vaguely supernatural twist
