REVIEW The Moonstone

READ & DOWNLOAD Ñ LABMEDNEWS.XYZ Ù Wilkie Collins SUMMARY ☆ The Moonstone Wilkie Collins Ù 1 SUMMARY Beueathed a rare diamond by her late uncle heiress Rachel Verinder has no idea it was stolen from an Indian temple or that it has a cursed history When the diamond disappears on her eighteenth birthday multiple suspects includ. The Moonstone generally recognized as the first detective novel despite the appearance of The Notting Hill Mystery a few years before is not only a work of historical importance but also a work that transcends the genre it created in the artfulness of its plotting in its compassionate depiction of servants and in its enlightened resolution of the theme of the British Empire its crimes and their conseuencesNot that I wish to minimize its historical importance The Moonstone is the first certainly the first fully formed detective novel and it contains within that great first a number of little firsts the first English country house mystery featuring a large guest list of suspects the first crew of bumbling local policemen mucking about in the evidence the first detective genius distinguished by an unlikely hobby the first small suggestive physical clue a smear on the bottom of a newly painted door the first effective red herrings I counted at least two the first attempt at a precise reenactment of the crime at its original scene and the first pursuit of a disguised criminal through the streets of a major cityBut it is the plot which uses all these firsts to great advantage that both astonishes and pleases the reader The Moonstone is at least three times the length of the average detective novel and yet it sustains interest and maintains credibility throughout its many twists turns and asides Its plot reminds me of the melody line of Bellini s Casta Diva which strikes the ear as a thing of incomparable elegance but never calls to mind except upon later reflection either its own extraordinary length or the expert craftsmanship such seamless length reuires Also impressive is Collins sympathetic depiction of the English servant class Steward and Butler Gabriel Betteredge is a marvelous comic character memorable for his daily readings of Robinson Crusoe which he reveres as a source of divination and practical guidance But Betteredge is also the essentially reliable narrator of half the novel and as we learn of the events on the Verinder estate through his eyes and ears we grow to love and trust him as a good man and an intelligent observer Also noteworthy is Collins presentation of Roseanna the servant girl with a deformed shoulder and a criminal past Collins treats her with dignity neither as a comic grotesue nor as an object of simple pity but as fully human person with a uniue blighted destinyBut perhaps my favorite thing about the book is Collins use of The Moonstone itself that great diamond snatched from a Hindu shrine by the villainous Colonel Herncastle during the Siege of Seringapatam the 1799 climax to the Fourth Anglo Mysore War which served to institutionalize English theft under the banner of the British East India Company It is the second theft of this gem from the Verinder estate that precipitates the events of the novel but memory of the original crime and its curse is never far from the reader for the Brahmins who wish to return The Moonstone to the shrine of Chandra are never far away At first these shadowy figures appear to be exotic villians but Collins eventually shows us that the real criminals both past and present are the respectable English and he grants his Hindu priests a moving coda Sure the ending of the novel is romantic and exotic But it is dignified and respectful of other cultures tooThe real reason however that you should read The Moonstone is that it endures after all these years as a diverting and absorbing entertainment The first detective novel is still as

The following is a recently found letter written by the English author Charles Dickens to his friend Wilkie Collins concerning the latter s newly released 1868 novel The MoonstoneCharles Dickens11 Gad s Hill PlaceHingham KentEnglandNovember 13 1868Dear Wilkie I am now pressing my pen against this paper to congratulate you on the success of your excellent new novel The Moonstone I have just completed reading it and I would like to present you with my opinion that this was as they say a true page turner in every sense of the word I am also taking the liberty to take this compliment a step further by stating that this is one of the finest mystery novels of all time I must confess that I have never actually read a book such as this that captures the sensation of a mysterious theft and a thorough investigation that follows it It was a fascinating read throughout as the solution to the mystery was also entirely above my suspicion I also thoroughly enjoyed the use of multi narration where the reader obtains various different viewpoints during the inuiry concerning the loss of the Indian diamond I believe that this novel The Moonstone has successfully maintained the same exceptional level of uality as your masterpiece The Woman in White and it ranks among the top tiers of the written pages from our fellow countrymen I have not the shadow of a doubt that this book will continue to enthrall readers for centuries to come The Moonstone is a best seller at the local bookseller here in Kent and my excitement for your continued success is immense Well done my dear friend Wilkie We shall celebrate this achievement over a glass of Cognac Best wishes and I look forward to reading your future worksYour friend alwaysCharles Dickens По здрави бебета Всичко за храненето от раждането до 2 години glass of Cognac Best wishes and I look forward to reading your future worksYour friend alwaysCharles Dickens

Though Wilkie Collins was long time friends with Charles Dickens they had drastically different writing styles and suffered some rough patches in their relationship In a letter to someone Dickens talks about his thoughts on The Moonstone The construction is wearisome beyond endurance and there is a vein of obstinate conceit in it that makes enemies of readers What the heck Who s this Dickens guy anyway What the heck does he know about writing SheeshI don t know what book the vaunted Mr Charles Dickens read but the book I read was absolutely wonderful It was hilarious entertaining smart and everything else that makes a good novel Beyond that it was especially surprising Being one of the first detective novels I expected it to be rather dry Maybe a little dull or outdated feeling Perhaps even a bit shallow and boring I m pleased to say that it was none of these things For a book written in the mid 1800 s this novel has a remarkably modern feel Though the main plot is a detective style mystery there is a wonderful underlying social commentary aspect all revealed through the lenses of the uniue cast of characters The story is brilliantly told by using various written narratives of different people all which not only tease us with knowledge of the mystery at just the right pace but also provide wildly entertaining character studies of the people writing them From my favorite character the chauvinistic old butler who wants nothing than to serve his household faithfully while leaning upon the crutch of Robinson Crusoe and his tobacco pipe to the absolutely but painfully hilarious distant cousin who is on a mission to convert everyone to her particular brand of christian values Each character s narrative is written in their uniue voice and it makes you love them all even when you re hating themI think Collins himself puts it perfectly when he said that unlike examining the influence of circumstances upon character as many other novels this book examines the influence of character upon circumstance This isn t some novel where you place an average person in an extraordinary situation and watch what becomes of them This is a novel where the extraordinary characters are the movers and shakers of the plot Yet even as wonderfully uniue as these characters are they are all at the same time so wonderfully human With the narrative style Collins chose we are allowed insight into the characters thought processes and feelings we are able to see than what actually happens In many other novels this approach might generate superfluous noise but in The Moonstone it keeps the book churning at a page burning pace and allows us to appreciate the smaller aspects of the novel even when the larger parts might normally be prepared to overshadow them This book almost feels like one of those guilty pleasure books people always try to judge others for reading but you can hold your head high on this one It s fun fast paced and riveting but nobody can accuse it of being shallow Each character brings not only a uniue perspective on the main plotmystery of the novel but also a uniue perspective on the world around them Let s explore what I mean with a couple of my favorite gentlefolk shall weThe old butler People in high life have all the luxuries to themselves among others the luxury of indulging their feelings People in low life have no such privilege Necessity which spares our betters has no pity on us We learn to put our feelings back into ourselves and to jog on with our duties as patiently as may be I don t complain of this I only notice it There s a bottom of good sense Mr Franklin in our conduct to our mothers when they first start us on the journey of life We are all of us or less unwilling to be brought into this world And we are all of us rightThe self righteous cousin whose only want is to share her beloved tracts I paid the cabman exactly his fare He received it with an oath upon which I
