I read The Moonstone within the last few years and liked it a lot.

It stands up pretty well, I think, especially if you can try to see it through the lens of its time, and realize how new and different it was then. There was supposed to be a new BBC-TV adaptation of The Moonstone to be broadcast over Christmas of this year, but I wasn't able to find out any details about whether it actually happened or not.


Wow! I thought I was the only one who loved Wilke Collins. My favorite is The Woman in White. I enjoyed your post.

Good choice, Janet! I was amazed to see how many radio/TV/film versions have been made of both "Moonstone" and "Woman in White" through the years. Tons of editions available online, too. Good to see!
