Good book but think the film was better!,
This review is from: The Woman In Black (Paperback)
This is such an odd book and although I enjoyed reading it I felt it had so much more to give and drawn upon. It is a very short book (just over 200 pages) so read over 3 nights and has left me slightly disappointed as I feel the book could have been much longer and gone more in-depth with more creepiness. Never in my life have I said this but I actually think the film is better than the book!!!
Good points: Lovely writing style, love how it could have been written 150 years ago instead of 1985, loved the gothic elements, attractive cover, large font you can actually see.
Bad points: Story had much more to tell but didn't, got fed up with nothing being explained properly and the fact that it would build up to a decent scary point and then just drop it at the last second so it flopped and lost it, too short - could use it to fill up a Sunday afternoon at most!
