The Spiral Staircase: Mary Rhinehart, Knowing the year this book was written, I can certainly overlook certain descriptions,comments. Times change and so do people. We also tend to write “what we know”. With that being said, I will focus on the writing and storyline. I personally find the story to drone on and on. I did not find it exciting, intriguing or even mysterious. The writer did not manage to pull me into the story. I had difficulty choking it down. It is slow and dribbles. ( )
