Reviews of : Mr Meesons Will by Henry Ryder Haggard PDF Book
Inside this Book – I first found this title while doing research for my year-long project of reading in the area of the history of mystery/crime/detective fiction, but it didn’t take too long to realize that this book really didn’t fit into that category. In fact, there’s a tag at the top of the cover that says “Classics Books Library: Suspense,” but it’s really one of those novels that sort of defies any attempt at pigeonholing, since it combines small touches of satire, shipwreck, adventure, romance, and a bit of tongue-in-cheek courtroom drama. And while I’d never give it the moniker of great literature, it’s a lighthearted fun read and pokes fun not only at capitalist greed, the anonymity of the working man and as in Dickens’Bleak House, the legal profession and the plight of inheritors when a case gets stuck in Chancery court.
Inside this book –Mr Meesons Will PDF Book by Henry Ryder Haggard – So the Meeson in question is the skinflint owner of a publishing house. At the beginning of the book, Our Heroine (Augusta Smithers, author of the phenomenally successful “Jemima’s Hope”) comes to Meeson’s publishing house to beg for more money than is required by the terms of her contract. She is, needless, to say, unsuccessful. Meeson’s nephew, Eustace, witnesses the altercation, has sharp words for his uncle and, as a result, is stricken from his uncle’s will. Gussie, we soon find, sought money on behalf of her poor, sick younger sister. With no money and (shortly) no sister, Gussie boards the good ship Kangaroo en route for New Zealand, where she hopes to start a new life with a distant cousin who is also, I believe, a priest
