They don t write em like this any.What the endorsers of the good old days tend to forget, and the view explored through the character of Sir Patrick, is that the past has always looked better than the present So as a modern reader of fiction from the 1800 s, it was interesting to see that although this period of time might seem idealized to us now, it wasn t so for the people living then Of course, this seemed common sense once I started thinking about it, but I just needed it pointed o They don t write em like this any.What the endorsers of the good old day

Wilkie Collins is known as one of the fathers of the mystery with The Moonstone and The Woman in White, both of which I would recommend In this work, Collins also shows himself as a master of suspense while engaging in some pointed social commentary as well.The suspense and much of the commentary is built around the Scottish marriage laws of the time, which recognized irregular marriages in which men and women, who wittingly or not, represented themselves as married were indeed married unde Wilkie Collins is known as one of the fathers of the mystery with The Moonstone and The Woman in White, both of which I would recommend In this work, Collins also shows himself as a master of suspense while engaging in some pointed social commentary as well.The suspense and much of the commentary is built around the Scottis
