5.0 out of 5 stars Chilling Christmas tales., 22 Dec. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Haunting Christmas Tales (Point - horror) (Paperback)
"Haunting Christmas tales" is a collection of Christmas ghost stories aimed at teenagers although there is no reason that older readers cannot enjoy them as well.
Despite the supernatural theme of the stories there is very little violence or gore. Instead the writers use mystery, atmosphere and suspense to engage the readers interest. The stories are also quite varied in terms of style as well. Some are scary, some are tragic, some have happy endings and some have tragic endings.
In Tessa Krailing's "Jingle bells" a young girl is attacked by a ghost every Christmas, while in Garry Kilworth's "The woodman's enigma" two children must solve the mystery of a wood cutters ghost and in Robert Swindells "The weeping maid" a young girl attempts to find out why her grandmother's house is haunted by the weeping ghost of a maid.
There are nine stories in total and they are: "Jingle bells" by Tessa Krailing, "The Woodman's enigma" by Garry Kilworth, "The weeping maid" by Robert Swindells, "The investigators" by David Belbin, "The cracked smile" by Anthony Masters, "The other room" by Jill Bennett, "The chime child" by Ian Strachan, "Crespian and Clairan" by Joan Aiken and "Across the fields" by Susan Price.
All in all its a great collection of Christmas ghost stories and is ideal ideal reading material for a cold winter night.
