Very imaginative and creative.,
This review is from: The Crimson Blind and Other Ghost Stories (Wordsworth Mystery & Supernatural) (Tales of Mystery & the Supernatural) (Paperback)
Contrary to several ghost tales I have read, 'The Death Mask' actually sounded greatly believable. Although some people may deem the ending incomplete, the truth is that here one can see how Mrs. Everett once again startled the reader. We are left thinking of how sorrowful the remainder of the character's existence shall be after this. From the start of the story the reader is snatched into the theme, and cannot put the book down thereafter. Through the entire story the reader's blood runs cold, and hair stands on ends. A perfect narrative by a perfect author, and a perfect addition for a Gothic literature collector, or a Mrs Everett fan.
I give this book five stars, and say the title should not be 'The Crimson Blind and Other Stories' but rather 'The Death Mask and Other Stories'. This book has many short stories of terror and sorrow (208 pages,) and is well worth the money.
