Wow! Today I finished reading the classic Gothic romance mystery "The Woman In White" by
"The Woman in White already has a substantial pedigree. The novel was first serialized in a weekly magazine, All Year Round, created by Collins's close friend Charles Dickens. When the final instalment was published in August 1860, it was so popular that queues formed to buy it. Wilkie Collins said of The Woman in White that "The story is the longest and most complicated I have ever tried". Fans of the story included the Prince Consort, Gladstone, Thackeray and Dickens himself.
