Review: The Moonstone

Finished reading The Moonstone by Wilkie Collins. I can't remember how I got turned on to this book, which is touted as one of the first mystery stories.

One thing that is unusual about it is that it is long. There are still the same twists and turns, but the length is attributable to the fact that a lot of the characters get to contribute their own perspectives and memories about the events.

Bottom line: I enjoyed it, but I kept saying GEEZ this is long!
