The plot thickens, all the players are here and the fun begins.

Quite right about the story being a window in to the anthropology of yesteryear, we sure have come a long way. Guess there is a hope after all.

I just found your podcast via iTunes and I must say I'm *really* enjoying
"The Woman in White".

I've always been a Dickens fan and it's easy to tell that Collins was a comtemporary.

The richness of language and vividness of description is something I've always associated with literature from Dickens' era.

I find that I am also *really* enjoying your reading voice and I'm having no trouble at all keeping track of which character is "speaking" at any point in the narrative.

I'm going to delve into the archives and load up another book or two for my listening pleasure.

Thank you Simeon!

I agree, Collins is quite fun so far. I'm a Dickens fan as well and I can see these characters existing along with his.

It's fun to find "old literature" isn't?
