No Name is Wilkie Collins tour de force of a novel about a woman bent on what some might deem vengeance and what others might simply call justice In case you were wondering I am in the later group The law having failed to be just Magdalene Vanstone and her sister Norah find themselves disinherited from their father s fortune The circumstances of their loss is heartbreaking and the lack of concern for them shown by the uncle who profits from their misfortune is infuriating Norah is the proper lady and accepts her losses with resignation Magdalene on the other hand determines to set things right by hook or crookWhat ensues is a nail biter Wilkie Collins puts modern day mystery writers to shame There are so many twists and turns it makes you dizzy but every one has a purpose and leads somewhere I cannot imagine being a Victorian and having to read this in installments My poor husband is celebrating that I have finished because by the second half I was scarcely able to break from it long enough to fix his dinnerHaving read several of Collins novels and long been aware of his close friendship with Charles Dickens I must say this is the one novel where I could spot Dickens influence most readily Many of the characters had a markedly Dickens flavor about them particularly the Wragges But Collins does something of his own that separates him from Dickens for me he builds a true mystery into his work Yes I know we anticipate when reading Dickens and there are plot elements that we long to find the explanation for that are mysterious but Collins novels have of the feeling of the mystery is the thing the how will she ever pull this off element the what is in that letter he just stuffed into his pocket intrigue the oh my God please catch that train on time fearfulness Dickens preys on the heart Collins on the mind

No Name is yet another beautiful book by Wilkie Collins Touching on a different legal concept the book takes uite a turn from his famous work The Woman in White Merging a legal concept with a heart touching story seems to be Wilkie Collins s style It is truly appealing especially when he exposes the gaps in law by which the very persons who need the protection of the law are left unprotected No Name is a touching story of a woman s uest to redress an injustice that has caused her and her sister to become outcasts penniless and robbed of their rightful inheritance due to a mere legality When they were orphaned Magdalen and Norah learn the bitter truth of their legitimacy Their parents were unmarried at the time of their birth and as such in the eyes of law they are illegitimate children in other words they are nobody s children and have no name In the absence of law or any other person to help them Magdalen makes it her cause to remedy the wrong done to her and her sister Norah by any means The principal heroine of the story is Magdalen She is strong willed and impetuous Her vindictive nature is aroused when her uncle declines to take notice of them due to their illegitimacy and to provide for them or assist them Stung to the core she resolves to recover the fortune by any means In the absence of law as a protector deception becomes her protector and weapon by which to achieve her end Magdalen is not a heroine of Victorian liking She is a criminal and a sinner in the eyes of a rigid Victorian society Her conduct is far too modern for Victorian understanding But Magdalen could be a modern heroine The modern society though cannot condone her conduct for no decent society can sanction deception would understand Magdalen better would appreciate the circumstances that drove her to act as she did However Collins doesn t abandon Magdalene to face Victorian social justice He shows that Magdalene sees the reason of her follies under the kind guidance of her sister and her new love and that she was repentant at the end and is determined to become a better person worthy of her sister and husband Norah is a complete contrast to Magdalene Her journey through their misfortune is one of patience and endurance With her goodness and righteous conduct she wins the battle with dignity So Norah is a Victorian heroine Both these characters were likable in their own way but Magdalen was the better heroine for me despite all her sins Her character had such colour and vibrancy so that the connection readers feel with her is instantaneous From the supporting characters the two villains one male and the other female were the best Their cunning battle to outsmart the other was uite interesting to read All the above would have failed however to make this book a fascinating read if it wasn t combined with Collins s beautiful prose and his sensitive and sincere writing The descriptive writing paints a complete picture of the events and characters of the story the cleverly executed plot and smooth flow of the story hold fast the readers to the story the touch of humour here and there adds a bit of lightness to otherwise a grave story the compassionate writing where Magdalen was concerned emotionally moves the readers Collins has adopted a new style of writing here He tells his story through a combination of narrative chronicle and epistolary writing This method was very refreshing It gives the reader a break from the monotony of the narrative I very much enjoyed this style The story the legal concepts the characters and Collins s beautiful writing made reading No Name pleasurable and memorable This novel is truly a literary gem I was very much surprised to learn that it is a lesser known work by the author I personally think that it is one great work by Collins I feel privileged to have read it
