This is not only my first post in this forum, but it is also about the first Wilkie Collins novel I read, namely, The Moonstone. What a nice, heavy, thin-paged, cool book I had on my shelf for years before I was driven by curiosity -- and a personal pact to read everything I own before purchasing any more books-- to open and ingest. I love the complex scheme of details of this plot, and I am fascinated by his use of "journal narrative" by all the characters. It seems like such a round story. I had a tiny feeling of hanging on a cliff when it ended, though.
I would be very interested in others' opinions about The Moonstone, and any other novels like this that I can buy when I am finished reading what I already have. Subquestion: what should be my next Collins novel?
