Item Description...
John Sutherland provides a fascinating introduction to a new edition of what T.S.Eliot called 'the first and greatest of all English detective novels'.

Publishers Description
Called "the first and greatest of English detective novels" by T.S.Eliot, The Moonstone is a masterpiece of suspense. A fabulous yellow diamond becomes the dangerous inheritance of Rachel Verinder. Outside her Yorkshire country house watch the Hindu priests who have waited for many years to reclaim their ancient talisman, looted from the holy city of Somnauth. When the Moonstone disappears the case looks simple, but in mid-Victorian England no one is what they seem, and nothing can be taken for granted.
Witnesses, suspects, and detectives each narrate the story in turn. The bemused butler, the love-stricken housemaid, the enigmatic detective Sergeant Cuff, the drug-addicted scientist--each speculate on the mystery as Collins weaves their narratives together. The Moonstone transcends the genre of detective novel or murder mystery, though, and this new edition features a fascinating introduction by John Sutherland which discusses the themes of imperialism, sensationalism and mesmerism.

Warning: Kindle edition notes don't work  Jun 21, 2009
I bought this edition instead of downloading one of the free ones because Oxford World Classics has copious notes. Unfortunately, they don't work in this book, i.e. when you place the cursor on one it doesn't recognize it as a note. Notes in the other OWC Kindle book I own work just fine but not here. I have requested a refund and will buy the book again when Kindle or Oxford tells me it's fixed.
pretty good but...  Jan 25, 2009
it was well written. there was quite a cast of characters but they were put in so gradually that it was easy to keep track of them. the story, being trapped somewhere between superstition and reality was also rather engaging. i would say that the beginning was strong and the end really lost it. with the clues given to the reader there is no way for them to guess the thief other than by luck. i am going to have to agree with Dickens on this one and say "when i got to the end i couldn't help but feel that my time had been wasted"
