I enjoy Wilkie Collins immensely, and Basil definitely did not disappoint me. I was surprised by the ending, but pleasantly so.

Basil (The World's Classics) Paperback – April 19, 1990. And, much of this is due in part to our quite naive and foolish main character, Basil, who literally falls in love with a girl he has never met and then concocts a wild scheme to marry her which thrusts a wild plot into place.
A further doublet is between the active Ralph and the passive Basil, as the former notes in his dialogue. Mrs Sherwin, Margaret’s mother, is apparently feeble-minded and as such is the precursor of Sarah Leeson (The Dead Secret), Mrs Wragge (No Name) and other of Collins’ deranged woman characters - though she is astute enough to suspect Margaret and Mannion's guilty secret.
Oxford World's Classics. Oxford World's Classics. In Basil's secret and unconsummated marriage to the linen-draper's sexually precocious daughter, and the shocking betrayal, insanity, and death that follow, Collins reveals the bustling, commercial London of the nineteenth century wreaking its vengeance on a still powerful aristocratic world.

Paperback, Oxford World's Classics, 400 pages. Published March 30th 2000 by Oxford University Press (first published 1852). Basil is Wilkie Collins' second novel. While not as refined and as intricate as his later works, it is still a solid story which I very much enjoyed. The atmosphere, with the sense of impending danger which I have always loved in his most famous novels, is involving and I was always immersed in the story, even if the plot isn't particularly surprising. I also liked the characters even if, again, they were not as well constructed and as remarkable as Collins' most famous creations. I think Basil Basil is Wilkie Collins' second novel.
