The Woman In Black by Susan Hill
The Woman In Black by Susan Hill
5.0 out of 5 stars Woman in Black, 12 Sep 2013
Having not seen the film, I did not know the story at all. From the first page, I was drawn in, as the mood was set brilliantly. I could feel the changes in the weather as they were described, and the malevolence sprang off the page. The story held my interest consistently, and although I had expected something similar to happen, the ending was not an anti climax. All in all, a very well written and entertaining novel.

I enjoyed this version which gives you the option to read the original play and a modern translation seperately or side by side on the page. I've only recently started to read Shakespeare, and I therefore began with the translation, which makes the text very accessible. Once finished, I read the comparative version which is very logically arranged on the page, and the translation seems to preserve the original themes very well. There are no notes, so I looked elsewhere to get a better idea of the play's background, themes and setting in time. It is however a great way to get a better idea of the play before going to see it being performed.

The Cost of Inequality: Why Economic Equality is E&hellip by Stewart Lansley
5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent account, 20 Mar 2013
This is a very clear explanation of the reasons for the financial crisis, and it has made a number of factors that played a part and their underlying significance clear to me. I found it a very good place to start in trying to understand more about the subject, and would recommend it to all.
