The Standard Ebooks edition of The Moonstone: When a fabulous gem mysteriously goes missing, suspicion abounds and a hunt begins for the guilty party.
The technique explores not just the actions of the other characters but at the same time the the character of the "writer". Any reader with reasonable mental agility should be able cope with this after a very few pages.
Given the periods it portrays and was written the British social structure and conventions might disturb readers who feel anything other than 21st century values constitute a moral abyss. These reader are the most likely to benefit from diving into this book. I found the book a delight. You can too if you abandon the aforementioned concerns and just enjoy the tale for what it is. Mystery fans may be amazed that at how many 20th century conventions are foreshadowed: The butler even cracks wise.
I did not successfully anticipate "who done it" which is an other virtue. Once you get over age and its values and fashions are start worrying about who, what, where and why the book becomes a page turner. It concludes with a satisfying outcome.
There were so many aspects I thoroughly enjoyed in this book. The mystery has some great twists and turns as well as the various unique characters!
The book is written from several character perspectives, which is fun for the most part. One character in particular though, was not so fun to listen too. She just went on and on and from an exhausting and close-mindedness religious mindset The first character reminded me so much of "Mr.
Carson" on Downton Abbey that I really enjoyed reading anything from him. Since this was written in the latter half of the 's, I anticipated a tougher read given how much are language has changed since then, but I was quite relieved and delighted that it was very easy to read. However, when I read this time that, according to P.
James, this book was the first mystery that used a detective character involved in the case, I decided to have another read, since that fact makes the book rather historical. Of course, my take after decades was quite different.
The child was enamoured with that Indian as in India culture woven throughout. The adult was enamoured with the overall mystery storyline. Wilkie Collins wrote an engrossing murder, but it was written when either editors didn't exist or publishers didn't care about lengths of novels. That was the fashion in those days. It is very well written, but as a former newspaper editor, yes Virginia, there were newspapers once upon a time I was itching to edit it and shorten it about pages.
But of course,, it was worth reading. I won't go into detail since it is a mystery , just to say that the moonstone itself ended up in its rightful place.

If you are curious to know what course I took under the circumstances, I beg to inform you that I did what you would probably have done in my place. I modestly declared myself to be quite unequal to the task imposed upon me—and I privately felt, all the time, that I was quite clever enough to perform it, if I only gave my own abilities a fair chance.
Franklin, I imagine, must have seen my private sentiments in my face.
He declined to believe in my modesty; and he insisted on giving my abilities a fair chance. Two hours have passed since Mr. Franklin left me.
As soon as his back was turned, I went to my writing desk to start the story. There I have sat helpless in spite of my abilities ever since; seeing what Robinson Crusoe saw, as quoted above—namely, the folly of beginning a work before we count the cost, and before we judge rightly of our own strength to go through with it.
Please to remember, I opened the book by accident, at that bit, only the day before I rashly undertook the business now in hand; and, allow me to ask—if THAT isn't prophecy, what is? I am not superstitious; I have read a heap of books in my time; I am a scholar in my own way.
Though turned seventy, I possess an active memory, and legs to correspond. I have tried that book for years—generally in combination with a pipe of tobacco—and I have found it my friend in need in all the necessities of this mortal life. On my lady's last birthday she gave me a seventh.

Published in , The Moonstone is often considered as one of the precursors of the modern detective novel, though this is a label which would not have been used by its author Wilkie Collins and his contemporaries.
