The Big Read V: The Woman in White – The Rest of the Installments…!

In which I read the rest of the book, diligently following Leila’s brilliant schedule, but didn’t bother to post about any of it…until now.

“The best men are not consistent in good – why should the worst men be consistent in evil?”

Yaaaay! What a splendid novel. Way too much fun. I’m not going to warn about spoilers this time, because I’m actually not going to reveal anything too intense. Suffice it to say that Collins weaves a perfect web of suspense and intrigue, populated by some of the most vivid and interesting characters I’ve encountered thus far in my reading ventures. Given the somewhat overtly straightforward narration, Collins achieves something quite astonishing as he keeps you on the edge of your seat throughout, and always guessing. A thoroughly satisfying novel.

Thanks to Leila for hosting her fifth Big Read. I didn’t participate as much as I wanted to, due to life and stuff off-net, etc., but I had a lot of fun. Sign me up for the next one! 🙂
