Pulling together all the familiar elements of a ghost story creepy specter, isolated house, suspicious townsfolk, endless marshlands Susan Hill presents a straightforwardly spooky tale.
It's fun for a quick and scary read. Like g gloryb Jul 20, Susan Hill's ghost story is a good one up to a point. For me, she falls down in explaining why the child was being driven away in a carriage at a time when it seemed unsafe to be crossing the causeway.
And what the driver? Why did just he escape the accident?
Was he just doing a job he was hired to do, or did he have other relationships with the characters he was driving away with. Hill is very good at description.
Having been to such houses as described in the story, set on an island which can be reached only at low tide by walking, I had no difficulty in imaging the setting. I could feel the cold moist mist rolling in, the tide coming in, the oozing wet sand, and see the isolated house standing in the midst of it all.
I am interested in viewing the DVD to see how this story, with little dialogue but reems of the narrator's thoughts, emotions, and insights, are developed for the movie screen. Like s scifiandscary Jan 12, Well, to be honest, I have to wonder if maybe I ruined the book by watching the movie beforehand.
Not that the movie was fantastic, mind you, but I think I just kept unconsciously comparing the two in mind. While the book definitely was better than the movie, it was hard to focus as fully on the book as I could have, I believe.
