Woman in Black,
By A Customer
This review is from: The Woman In Black (Paperback)
I have recently read this book and The Woman in Black is a tale that is full of surprises and suspense. The story concerns a young solicitor who is sent to wind up the affairs of a recently deceased woman. However, the dead woman had led a reclusive life in a remote and mysterious house. This particular soliciter called Kipps discovers he has to wind up her affairs without any help from the locals who will not approach the house because they believe the house is cursed! Years later, and this is where the play actually begins, he recounts his ghostly experiences with the aid of an actor/director, who helps him prepare to tell his story in front of his family and friends in a desperate bid to exorcise the ghosts of the past.
I was so pleased with the book that I saw the play at the fortune theatre in London and it is so much better then the book! I advise people that haven't read the book to see def you will scream for ages!!
