Ms Hill writes beautifully with such a skilled, smooth hand that I was effortlessly drawn into the scenes of the places she describes and into the lives and feelings of the characters she's created.
The ending is quite different to that of the film and I really have no idea why it was changed as the author's version is so much better.
The reason for my 3 States however is not due to the language nor the authors ability to place the scene in my mind as I could picture it clearly. What let this story down was the lack of suspense, the scare factor. I was left very disappointed.
I'm glad I've read it if only for distracting me but if your after a good ghost story, this story may leave you wanting.
Haunting at it's absolute best and I enjoyed each and every word.
However; I do have a negative, though it's nothing to do with the story, my copy of this book has dreadful print quality to the point when there are almost whole words missing. It's only a short book, more novella than novel, and wasn't exactly cheap. I was totally disappointed by the poor quality. That might only be a slight niggle but; when you're seriously involved in a story it's really annoying when you have to stop and work out what the next word should be, you lose concentration.

Great thriller and very atmospheric. Some vivid and evocative language helped to create some real tension. Quite different to the film version for those following up after viewing. Read morePublished 12 days ago by chris anderson
