The Woman In Black: A Ghost Story


Maybe it's the flowery language, or it could be the roundabout way it takes to get anywhere in the plot, but I just don't enjoy reading gothic horror all that much. But as far as gothic stories go, The Woman in Black was not that bad.

Unfortunately, this book suffers from so many of the books made into movies, the movie plot was just a little better. The scriptwriters added a additional horror twist that made the movie just that much better.

As far as the book went, the writing was good, and the characters were well developed. I would consider reading more of Susan Hill.
