    One thought on “The Lady Vanishes

    1. Marvin

      One of my favorite Hitchcock movies, and arguably his best British film, is The Lady Vanishes It is a droll mix of humor and mystery concerning the disappearance of a old British lady on a train in Europe Iris, another younger British woman, is the only one who remembers her and everyone else says the old woman doesn t exist.The Wheel Spins by Ethel White is the novel on which The Lady Vanishes is based on It is an excellent example of the movie being better than the book This isn t that The Whe [...]

      Is this literature No Was this fun Yes It was certainly the right book at the right time It is less mystery and psychological thriller, but some of each There is a Hitchcock film which I haven t seen, but of all directors, Hitchcock would certainly have been the right one for this White easily sets the atmosphere.But faces kept coming in between her and her goal faces that grinned or scowled the faces of strangers They melted away like a mist, only to give place to other faces There was a flash [...]

      I adore The Lady Vanishes it is easily one of my favourite films I also love discovering forgotten authors who have fallen by the wayside for one reason or another Imagine my delight then when I found a Kindle copy of Ethel Lina White s collected works, including The Wheel Spins, the novel which Hitchcock s film was based upon.The Wheel Spins is remarkably slick White moves from one character to the next so fluidly, and her writing is strong I was immediately pulled in Whilst Hitchcock s film ad [...]

      Here is another entry into the Book to Movie Reading Challenge as well as a whole boat load of other challenges Ethel Lina White s novel The Wheel Spins 1936 was snapped up by Alfred Hitchcock and transformed into The Lady Vanishes 1938 This is another of the very rare cases where the movie is better than the book Or maybe it s just that once I find something in one medium I rarely like it better in another.I first watched The Lady Vanishes about 20 years ago I thoroughly enjoyed Margaret Lockwo [...]

      I listened to the unabridged BBC Audiobooks recording, narrated by Finty Williams, who reads clearly and with great range.Published in 1936 when the author was sixty years old, this novel was released as a film two years later, directed by Alfred Hitchcock The book was originally published as THE WHEEL SPINS, but most editions out there all of which seem to be out of print in the USA are called THE LADY VANISHES Nothing like a fantastic movie to keep a book alive.This is actually a very well obs [...]

      Added 8 10 16 first published 1936 Adapted to film title tt0030341 I was reminded about this book when it was mentioned in a quiz question at FunTrivia.My Netflix record shows that I rated the film 5 stars on 5 30 2010 It s vague in my mind.For some reason, I confuse this book with one entitled The Woman in White by Wilkie Collins I guess it s because the titles are similar See my review of that book at review showThere are several film versions of this book 1938 Starring Margaret Lockwood, Mich [...]

      After several less than stellar White novels, this one comes back up close to the standard of Some Must Watch Thoroughly enjoyed it.

    10. Irene

      I was expecting this classic 1936 missing person novel to be so predictable that it would fail to hold my interest I was pleasantly surprised Although the solution to the mystery was telegraphed rather early in the story and I anticipated a happy ending, White created such fantastic atmosphere that despite myself, I was on the edge of my seat reading it 3.5 stars

      aka The Lady VanishesA young Englishwoman, Iris Carr, is travelling home alone from an unspecified European country Suffering from sunstroke, she nearly misses her train but a helpful porter shoves her into a carriage at the last moment The people in the carriage clearly resent her presence all except one, that is Miss Froy, another Englishwoman, takes Iris under her wing and carries her off to have tea in the dining carriage When they return, Iris sleeps for a while When she awakes, Miss Froy h [...]

      I want to do a full review of this soon, but till then, this was an effortlessly suspenseful read, even if you ve seen the movie The I read Ethel Lina White, the I come to appreciate her This one particularly delighted me, not just with its gripping plot but also with the heroine s journey towards repentance and self sacrifice.

    13. Melissa Lenhardt

      A good psychological thriller weakened by a reveal midway through and a too easy, somewhat abrupt ending The Rosetta edition is also riddled with typos.

    15. Leslie Ann

      The prose dragged a bit, but the resolution was quite satisfying.Update I watched the Hitchcock adaptation, and enjoyed it than the book.

    16. Robert Spencer

      The only drawback is that I have seen The Lady Vanishes so many times that the main thrust of the book namely, the set up of a confounding situation which is then ingeniously explained, and which happens multiple times in the plot brings less satisfaction because I already knew how it would all play out But you have to give credit nowadays the whole person goes missing in the middle of a crowded train plane hotel etc and only the hero ine seems to remember them premise is old hat, but I wonder i [...]

    17. Jackie

      Originally published in 1936 as The Wheel Spins , it seems to have been re issued under the title of the better known Hitchcock film, based on the novel one of my favourite films It differs from the film as you d expect, but the basic premise is the same Really enjoyed it.

    18. Bill FromPA

      Iris Carr is a young Englishwoman leaving an unnamed eastern European country called Bandrika in the film by train on the first leg of a return to England On the train she meets a talkative English governess, Miss Froy Suffering the aftereffects of sunstroke, Iris falls asleep and when she awakens finds that Miss Froy is missing and that the railway personnel and all her fellow passengers insist that no person matching Miss Froy s description was ever on the train The rest of the novel follows I [...]

    19. Lindsay

      FINALLY After a slow start, and a whole middle section I debated skipping, I m finally through to the other side Now, after having closed the book, I suppose I am glad to have read it, but I just wish it hadn t felt like such a chore.What kept me going Halfway through the book, the author began to give glimpses into the lives of the other passengers I was thoroughly bored when it had been just Iris voice, since it was mainly her whining and worrying that she was losing her sanity Once the myster [...]

    20. Laura

      This book was originally published in 1936 as The Wheel Spins which title is much appropriate in my opinion to the plot itself Hitchcock then adapted to the cinema in 1938 starring Margaret Lockwood as Iris Henderson and Michael Redgrave as Gilbert An electronic version of this movie is available at Internet Archive

    21. Amanda

      Just okay Maybe if Hitchcock hadn t made a movie of the story I would ve liked it But this is one of the rare instances where the movie is better than the book It seems a bit antiquated or maybe Ms White just wasn t a great author This is certainly no Du Maurier s Rebecca or Buchan s The 39 Steps.

    22. Les Wilson

      This is a first class book I usually like to read the book before the film I made the exception in this case, as we all saw the Hitchcock films as they came out Highly recommend.

    23. Amina Nole

      Oh my god it took me so damn long to finish this bookwhen I first read the synopsis I got so excitedunfortunately it got a slow start,chapters were boring and it was hard to finish it untill the plot picked up half way through the book I liked the plot rising and I became so sorry for poor Iris and I couldn t keep myself from imagining what I would do if I was facing the same situation and I thought she s a very brave girl for not letting anyone to deceive her and did whatever was possible to he [...]

    24. Deb Atwood

      I saw the movie of this years ago Reading the book gave me a lot insight into the author and the characters There was some sort of xenophobic talk of the proper English person and how that person should behave Ironically, several of the English people did not behave well Also, this must have been quite a paternalistic time Passengers on the train actually believed they had a right to drug a woman against her will because they thought she was acting in a hysterical manner Imagine

    25. Davidlodge82

      Novela predecible si, pero donde la autora sabe crear un ambiente opresivo contrarreloj que para ser de 1930 esta bastante bien Entra able se orita Froy aunque insoportable seg n Iris
