This is more mystery than detective. Hawthorne in his introduction uses the term Riddle.

A pretty mixed bag. The Lawrence Sterne story was surprisingly weak, the Dickens surprisingly strong.

The version of Melmoth included here is clearly truncated (like those "condensed" books), and may have been the one I was exposed to back in the day. The original is often described as interminable, and clocks in at over 600 pages - double the length of this volume!

So I will still be giving that a go, as an interminable volume of constantly-interrupted nested narratives by possibly unreliable narrators is just the sort of grueling entertainment I like to set for myself.… (més)
