Book Review from ViajeLiterario-AlohaCriticon
Victorian, convoluted intrigue story full of mystery, love and suggesting characters. The Woman in White is the most popular novel writen by Wilkie Collins, a romantic book with gothic traces that was published in Household Words, a weekly publication created by his friend an excellent writer Charles Dickens.
Using an original structure in which the narration is told from different points of view, the writer achieves an absorbent suspenseful atmosphere that catches from the very first page the reader’s attention.
Characters are psychologically complex and we have to mention Count Fosco, an excellent and charming villain, and the magnificient portrait of the female character Marian Halcombe, a woman of great intelligence and self-confidence.
