Loosely based on a case from the annals of French crime, the horror of this mystery comes through the invention of one of the classic Victorian "sensation" novelists, Wilkie Collins, who also wrote The Moonstone and The Woman in White.

The Haunted Hotel
Not Wilkie Collins' best but expertly narrated. The plot is rather flat and predictable with a rather lame and contrived ending which does not do justice to the interest generated in Agnes' future in the orientation. The character of Lady Montberry is a rather confusing one. The Moonstone and The Woman in White are far superior in terms of penmanship.

Confusing and rambling
Very hard to follow the plot. Very boring. Misleading title. The narrator had a pleasant voice, but the story made me fall asleep.
THE HAUNTED HOTEL
I COULD NOT FOLLOW THIS STORY. NOR DID I WANT TO . IT DID NOT HOLD MY INTEREST.
