    "As far as books by Wilkie Collins goes, this is a must read. It is one to read, regardless. One of the first books in the genre that "combined Gothic horror with psychological realism." I was looking for a starting point with this Author and this one delivered and them some. Excellent read."

    "One of the best crime and mystery has to offer. This is the type of novel that makes you think you understand what's going to happen and then there's another twist and turn to throw you off. This book has been able to throw the sharpest of readers."

    "The Woman in White is a novel that is both dark and uplifting as it covers the sinister intrigues of Sir Percival Glyde. I especially like the book's cover art which is a perfect summation of the book itself. This book had me unable to put it down on multiple chapters, it really intense at times."

    "This is a classic book, full of suspense and thrills. However, it isn't specifically centered around ghosts as far as i can tell. This book was a great read, but it didn't quite give me exactly what i was looking for. "

    "This book has stood the test of time. A classic mystery fiction novel published in 1859, it continues to provide readers a thrilling work of fiction. This Victorian novel combined both gothic fiction and psychological thriller elements. It was a break from the typical gothic fiction of works like Brahm Stoker's Dracula which was dry, stuffy, and frankly antiquated bringing a new style of thriller books combining two stimulating reading genres into one book."

    "I found this Victorian set novel premise to be quite bizarre, perhaps there is a lot to be left to the imagination on that little detailed synopsis. Although, yes it is set in Victorian times I do not think this is a book I would want to read. "

    "I used to hide this book under my mattress because it terrified me when I first read it as a kid. I decided to read it again, and it's just as terrifying. The Woman in White is a classic for good reason. The book is complex and haunting, with twists that grab you even on a re-read. "

    "I can only assume Wilkie Collins is a doctor, because he's created the best cure for insomnia in a generation. If you love exceedingly simplistic and implausible "mysteries" written hundreds of years ago, The Woman in White is your gal. Everyone else: steer clear!"
  • Joyce He

    "The only real flaw in this densely plotted page-turner of a novel is that in the end it slightly disappoints because it promises more than it delivers. It makes the reader fall in love with its plain but resourceful heroine Marian Halcombe, and teases us with the delightful prospect that she will become the principal agent bringing the villains to justice."

    "A classic! I loved reading this book and can really see why it's stood the test of time through the years. It really keeps the reader guessing throughout it and I found myself unable to put it down."
