The Moonstone is a beautiful yellow diamond that was stolen from the statue of a Moon god in India. When Franklin Blake brings it to Rachel Verinder's house in Yorkshire for her birthday, it brings bad luck with it. How many people will the Moonstone hurt? How many must die before the diamond's revenge is complete?

Wilkie Collins: The Moonstone

Az első kétszáz oldal után azt mondtam, hogy ez nagyon rossz, a második kétszáz után azt, hogy egész jó, az utolsó kétszáznál meg azt, hogy kiváló. Esetleg rövidítsük le a történetet 600 oldalról 200-ra, és csillagos ötös. Így csak csilagos három és feles.

The design of this book – with which the worldly reader may not be acquainted – is to show how the Evil One lies in wait for us in all the most apparently innocent actions of our daily life. The chapters best adapted to female perusal are „Satan in the Hair-Brush”; „Satan behind the Looking-Glass”; „Satan under the Tea Table”; Satan out of the Window" – and many others.
