Y complain was actually on the last page that made me roll my eyes and feel differently about the entire story but the pros definitely outweigh the cons here Eat your heart my eyes and feel differently about the entire story but the pros definitely outweigh the cons here Eat your heart Wilkie Collins What a fantastic book this is I just loved every minute of it and there were a LOT of minutes for some reason it took me an age to read For about three weeks I felt like I was living in the middle of a Victorian soap opera There was murder betrayal divorce disguises and death and all this set among a backdrop of stately homes and horse and carriages What s not to loveI can t nderstand why this book is not better known or held in higher esteem Hallelujah for Oxford World Classics reviving this book with a fab cover too I haven t read anywhere near the amount of Victorian classics that I want to yet but for me this ranks among my favourites now Classed as a sensational novel in the 1800 s when it was written this book was serialised in a weekly newspaper How I would have waited with baited breath for each new edition to hit the news standsThe books main character is Lady Isabel Vane who lives at East Lynne a grand stately home with her Father When her Father the Earl of Mount Severn dies and his debts are discovered Lady Isabel is proposed to by the lovely young lawyer Archibald Carlyle much to the heartache of one Barbara Hare who nbeknown to Archibald is in love with him Lady Isabel and Archibald seem happy together and go on to have three children but all the while Archibald is helping Barbara Hare to clear her brother s name for a murder that was committed some years ago and for which he escaped the scene of the crime and hasn t been seen since With all the clandestine meetings between Archibald and Barbara Lady Isabel is overcome by jealousy and in the heat of the moment abandons her entire family for a man of very dubious character I don t want to say too much else for fear of spoiling the book for anyone but needless to say that this is most definitely not the last we see of Lady Isabel or the cad she ran off with With misinterpreted conversations gallore hushed secrets and christmas cracker disguises this book gallops along with you not daring to let goI can honestly say that for me there was not a dull moment in this book It is very accessible and easy to read even for those who find Victorian literature hard going and long though the book was I was sad when I came to the endI think I can honestly say that the sensational novels of the Victorian era are becoming my favourites having also loved Lady Audley s Secret Mary Elizabeth Braddon and The Woman In White Wilkie Collins I Love The Dramatic Woman In White Wilkie Collins I love the dramatic lines and the fact that you can almost hear the swish of the stage curtain at the end of a chapter and the DUN DUN DUUUUUUUN Fabulous book Highly recommended Why oh why is this book not better known It s been Sensation Novel Spring here and I ve said a lot of what I have to say about them in my review of Lady Audley s Secret East Lynne is of the same Disguises mountains of foreshadowing Nancy Drew esue se of italics it s all here That s certainly a lot of fun and so is this bookHere s the general plot Isabel marries Mr Carlyle Romantic comedy complications the type that could easily be cleared p if anyone had an honest conversation with anyone else creep in view spoilerIsabel runs off with the loathsome Levison who shortly abandons her with their lovechild who s then killed in a deus ex trainwreck Isabel pulls a Mrs Doubtfire disguising herself as a governess to infiltrate her former household where Mr Carlyle has remarried to his former flame Barbara Levison is finally exposed as a murderer everyone dies in lengthy and maudlin death scenes that involve plenty of Jesus talk The end hide spoiler I could tell you that East Lynne a huge popular success in its day has nremarkable writing is horribly contrived holds no real surprises drifts into silliness and goes on for much too longBut I could also tell you that I had to keep reading that I was very well entertained and that the book was very easy to readI d read it before many years ago when my love for Victorian sensation novels was very new and though
I REMEMBERED THAT ARC OF THE 
remembered that arc of the I had forgotten so many detailsEast Lynne is an estate located near the small town of West Lynne It s owner the Earl of Mount Severn was far from old but he was crippled by gout and very close to bankruptcy He hoped to sell East Lynne the only nentailed property still in his possession privately so that his creditors would not find out Archibald Carlyle a successful young lawyer from West Lynne visited the Earl as he was very interested in the propertyAt dinner he met the Earl s daughter Lady Isabel Vane He saw that she was beautiful that she was innocent that she loved her father dearly and that she had no idea how precarious his and her position wasAfter dinner Lady Isabel left to attend a party with her cousin and chaperone Mrs Vane Lady Isabel met Captain Francis Levison her chaperone s cousin from another wing of her family at that party He was. Rce became readily available and promiscuity threatened the sanctity of the family In her novel the simple act of hiring a governess raises the spectres of murder disguise and adultery Her sensation novel was devoured by readers from the Prince. Librivox narrator is terrible I hear every Breath She Takes And There she takes and there no nuance at all in her narrationUpdateFound what seemed breath she takes and there is no nuance at all in her narrationUpdateFound what seemed a different Librivox recording on Youtube The narration started out ok at least not breathy and asthmatic However every 2 chapters a different narrator took over and all of them read like robots with different accents one woman sounded Australian another British but most were American both men and women One young man couldn t pronounce several words I was completely distracted by all of these aspects of narration I kept wondering my Librivox put out such a poor recording and would se different narrators I ve never had that experience before I can t bear to listen any East Lynne was an extraordinary publishing success in its day and it s not difficult to see why It s right p there with the best of Victorian sensation fiction which for me means Wilkie Collins I have also tried Mary Elizabeth *Braddon s Lady Audley s Secret which was fun but not *s Lady Audley s Secret which was fun but not in the same league Ell A sensational Victorian novel that tackles jealousy love triangles mistaken identities murder and divorce East Lynne was seven hundred pages of nputdownable I was enthralled by the character of Lady Isabel Carlyle and her ill fated life story Not that she doesn t hold some responsibility for her own fate but was there ever a woman born nder a less auspicious star For the Victorians marriage was still a sacred institution and inviolable divorce was a new idea and allowed only for the most immoral of infractions For someone who wrote nder the appellation Mrs Henry Wood it must have been a struggle to The Ascent of Man understand what forces could compel a decent woman to endp with one While there could be no doubt where Mrs Wood stood on this I thought she handled the subject in a fair and thoughtful manner and painted a sad and tragic but not a villainous figure in Lady IsabelI followed the story with relish beginning to end and just when things seemed predictable I found they weren t For anyone who enjoys the works of Elizabeth Braddon Elizabeth Gaskell or Wilke Collins I would say this book is a must When one wants to read a Victorian author who wrote salacious stories full of intrigue and The Grand Sophy unreuited love and a dash of murder theysually reach for Wilkie Collins And there s nothing wrong with that because Collins is one of my favorites and he is truly delicious Or they turn to his BFF Charles Dickens arguably the most famous Victorian author evahThe I read however the I realize there are a lot of other books that are really great and I dare say better than Dickens This is one of themMrs Henry Wood was Ellen Wood who apparently wrote some 30 novels East Lynne is apparently the most well known of the batch I say this because it s the only book my normally awesome library system has by herIf you want sensational you d be doing yourself a favor by picking Winners Dream up this book This story has it all there is a murder mystery and there s also sort ofnreuited love and love triangles and sneaky financial sorts and even a courtroom drama I really enjoyed the entire story and felt connected to most of the characters throughout even if they did lean towards the melodramatic with some swooning and lots of tearsThere s a heart here that is missing from a lot of Dickens s stories or even those by Collins One could say that as a female author Wood was able to get into the hearts of her female characters in ways that her male counterparts might struggle with being the repressed Victorian fellows that they were and all But maybe it s just that Wood is a better writer and O viziune a sentimentelor understands human nature better than they In any case she rocked the socks off of charactersShe didn t shy away from awkward parts of her story either There s less than subtle references to sex and female characters who weren t really excited by it That also seemsnusual for the time period but was sort of refreshing to readThere are a few different storylines in this book but they all come together fairly well in the end Wood focused on one person or one family for a bit and then turned her focus to another person or family for another bit but throughout all of that the reader never loses sight of the other persons or families which I found to be rather artfully done Even though I was reading about the Carlyles for example I never stopped thinking about the Hares and vice versa mostly because Wood managed to tie pieces of the other family s stories into one another so they were never very far from the reader s mind even if they were not the focal point at that particular moment So often while reading Dickens we meet characters and then they disappear for a great part of the book and by the time they show Harveys Revised English Grammar up again it s like Oh shit yeah this guy Riiiight and then I have to remember what his story even was I didn t have that problem with Wood Because she was goodI highly recommend this to people who dig sensational Victorian novels as I do and especially to those who like to read less well known Victorian authors This was a delicious read My onl. When the aristocratic Lady Isabel abandons her husband and children for her wicked seducer is at stake than moral retribution Ellen Wood playedpon the anxieties of the Victorian middle classes who feared a breakdown of the social order as divo. .
