A Little Gem.,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Woman In Black (Paperback)
This is a beautifully written ghost story and I appreciated every syllable; not because the story was particularly riveting, although I did find it quite creepy and strangely compelling, but because Susan Hill writes such clean, uncluttered English and her descriptive powers are second to none. As a devoted fan of Susan Hill's writing I simply delighted in every word.
The novel has all the requisites of a good ghost story i.e. an isolated house, ghostly mist, a tragic tale of a young mother and a lost son and an atmosphere of pervading and impending doom.
I haven't outlined the plot as so many other reviewers have already summarised the story and there is always the danger of plot spoilers.
This is a little gem and deserves to be treasured.
