Hungry for more
on 18 June 2013
I enjoy Susan Hill's writing and love the settings and tense atmosphere that she creates in some of her stories. The atmospheric setting is present in this short book, but in my opinion the story created a feeling that it needed to develop more, to make it a satisfying read. I was enjoying the story and wanted it to continue, so by the end I felt that it concluded in a slightly unsatisfactory way. I was left wanting more!
I know it's a short story and I enjoy reading novellas, I think this is one of those stories where readers will be happy with how the story ends, and some will not.
