This review is from: The Woman in Black (The Susan Hill Collection) (Hardcover)
I'll begin with the confession that I saw the play before I read the book but was determined to read the book before I inevitably watch the film! This hardcover edition is a gorgeous book in itself in terms of aesthetics and paper quality.
I enjoyed the first person narrative immensely, when I read a ghost story or supposedly spine-chilling tale I want to feel as though it is realistic, feasible and that I could be yanked head first into the page at any moment. I certainly felt that way with The Woman in Black. There is a slow build of tension, intrigue from the beginning and threads deftly woven right from the off but the crescendo takes it's time and is worth waiting for!
