    One thought on “Henry Dunbar”

    1. Sometimes a sensation novel is just what you need.I read Mary Elizabeth Braddon s two most famous novels Lady Audley s Secret and Aurora Floyd many years ago, and I have them on my shelves, in green Virago Modern Classics editions, because I d love to read them again one day You see, in those days I didn t look as far for books as I do now I just looked in the library and bookshops and found that enough to read and nothing else caught my eye.More recently though I noticed though, that in this w [...]

    2. Purple and BlackI m a fan of Braddon and the Sensationalists in general but this isn t among the best of her books It is entertaining however The main flaw is that the solution to the mystery is obvious from the beginning but the journey is still enjoyable And that s the main point of Henry Dunbar the journey Dunbar is a scion of an important English banking firm but commits a grave mistake in his youth His father and uncle banish him to India for his sins Of course things aren t too grave since [...]

    3. This is an intriguing story of identity theft, love, murder, privileges of wealth, dysfunctional families, and detective work without phones or computers Braddon s characters are realistically well rounded the good guys often show some less than admirable trait, and the bad guys sometimes surprise with their kindness or repentance.First published in 1864 I listened to this novel as a free download from LibriVox

    4. I enjoyed this, but along with other reviewers here, I didn t feel it was Braddon s best and or my favorite of hers It s true that the mystery isn t much of a mystery at all you KNOW even before anything happens what will happen , but seeing the plot build and develop kept me on the edge of my seat for the resolution view spoiler I think what didn t work for me so well in this book was Margaret s decision to aid her father once she finds out the truth I knew it would be that way, but I still wan [...]

    6. This mystery was first published in 1864 and in 2015 I still found it to be an impressive read This is one of those sensation novels so popular during Victorian times and is one of 75 novels written by prolific author Mary Elizabeth Braddon Braddon is best known for Lady Audley s Secret, but I find HENRY DUNBAR to be the much better book.There s fraud, betrayal, bitterness and revenge, murder, mistaken or assumed identities, blackmail, suspense, interesting detection work by various characters, [...]

    7. Ho sempre amato i gialli vittoriani, con le loro storie che si dipanano lentamente e i detective che contrariamente a quanto succeder ai loro colleghi nei racconti polizieschi di qualche decennio pi tardi il pi delle volte risultano beffati dagli eventi.Mary Elizabeth Braddon dimostra ancora una volta la sua grande abilit di scrittrice e ancora una volta mi trovo ad ammirare le figure femminili coraggiose, determinate, indipendenti disegnate da queste splendide signore romanziere dell ottocento. [...]

    8. Great mystery by Elizabeth Braddon Even if it was pretty clear who the villan was and what had he done since the very first pages of the book, yet the plot keeps you chained and it turns till the very end of the novel.Great writer Braddon is, if not known enough

    9. It s a shame that this is my first book of 2017, because it was quite a disappointment If you liked Lady Audley s Secret and want suspenseful Victorian melodrama ep looking Laura Dunbar is going for that same spoiled, yet charming heiress archetype that Alicia Audley had, but instead she s just a bland perfect blonde The so called Henry Dunbar is too much of a coward to be a menacing villain, unlike Lady Audley Yes, I m spoiling a Victorian novel that no one cares about anyway Will a certain re [...]

    10. It s hard to review a Braddon novel without spoilers, but This story revolves around an impoverished young woman who is searching for her father who has disappeared, and a rich man who becomes a recluse.As other readers have pointed out, you easily and quickly figure out what happened and so throughout the book you re waiting for the characters to figure it out also But I found that this was an interesting twist which made this of a psychological novel than a detective novel More Ruth Rendell o [...]

    11. This was a good book how ever I do wish the author had done to make it interesting I look forward to reading of this author s work.

    12. This was quite entertaining, but I think that the mystery part was way too easy to figure out, so instead of suspense of WHAT HAPPENED there was a WHEN ARE THEY ALL GOING TO FIGURE OUT WHAT I ALREADY KNOW so it was kind of slow going towards the end Still, quite clever and a fun, easy read My third Mary Elizabeth Braddon in a row I need a break

    13. Another entertaining read from Mrs Braddon I felt that the bad characters were better realised than the good ones who were rather insipid and one dimensional And the ending was a little rushed and disappointing but overall I still enjoyed it.

    14. A Victorian best seller, if I recall correctly It has some mystery and some adventure in it, no big surprises, but worked to keep my attention It s not a who dun it so much as it is a how they gonna catch im Like the old series Columbo, sort of Enjoyable book.

    15. classic funa well written story of love and murder in mid century 19th Great Britain A favourite I highly recommend Enjoy it.
