Having seen the movie recently I thought I'd like to read the book as well and I'm so glad I did. I've never read Susan Hill before, but will now be adding more of her books to my Kindle with great anticipation.
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.

I picked up this book following some recommendations and was surprised to find it a shorter book than most but just bigger than a short story. I didn't think it would take me long to read however I found the language a little difficult to follow.
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.

Exceptional ghost story and very easy to read, only short so I'd finished the whole thing within two days. Seriously spooky with a building tension that doesn't let you go and plenty of plot twists and turns to keep you from guessing the ending. When the end comes it's seriously shocking and sad and I hadn't second-guessed it, completely surprising. The story itself is beautifully written with wonderfully descriptive prose that makes the darkness at it's heart even more scary. "The Woman in Black" is a dreadful spectre and her vengeance is terrible, she's demonic in both appearance and behaviour, Susan Hill has created a masterful character with the power to make you sleep with the lights on.

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.

Book was in mint condition and arrived really quickly. After seeing the film and the show at the theatre I wanted to read the book. Although hard to get into, it's a creepy story and really well written

Best read before bed, preferably with a dim light. It's the kind of book that is tense and creepy as you read it, but the real horror comes when you are lying in bed at night and you remember the description of the soft thumping noise coming from a locked room, and you start to think you can hear a bang coming from downstairs...

Excellent, super creepy- my first serious introduction to literary horror (by literary I mean well written, rather than disappearing down its own rabbit holes)
