I just finished reading The Frozen Deep, by Wilkie Collins. It’s a short novella, originally written as a play, and was a free download that I’ve had in my classics collection on my Kindle for quite awhile. But I chose to read it now because many of my blogging friends are going to be discussing it today as part of the Wilkie in Winter Read-a-long, hosted by Amanda from Fig and Thistle, in tandem with The Estella Society (Andi and Heather). I wanted to be able to read reviews, comments, and discussions about the book without it spoiling it for me, and it was such a short book, I finished it in no time.
Tomorrow (January 8th) is Wilkie Collins birthday, and with much of the USA currently caught in their own “frozen deep” with frigid temperatures that are closing schools and business and delaying flights, it seems right to be discussing The Frozen Deep today.
Without writing an actual review, I’ll tell you that I enjoyed this little book very much, gave it 4 stars on my Goodreads page, and am heading over to check out the tweets (#wilkieinwinter) and the links to the reviewers of the Wilkie in Winter group. Should be fun!
Ohhhhh! I love Wilke Collins and had not heard of this novella! I will have to look around for it!
Pat, it’s definitely worth reading. I enjoyed it!
