After one particular night Adam Snow finds himself journeying through the downs on his commute back to the hustle and bustle of London, only to then discover himself truly lost. Eventually he comes upon a house that has a sign up saying `garden closed' and then decides being a rather conspicuous house, to go in and ask for directions. However all is not as it seems when he comes upon the derelict house, for when he then turns around to return to the car a presence is lurking within the shadows and a small hand clutches hold of him.
This story certainly takes the imagination on quite a journey as this `small hand' is something not visible and yet to the protagonist is something very real and definitely present.Read more ›
A good start no? Especially this coming from the writer of "The Woman in Black", a flawed but still quite good ghost story. Unfortunately it quickly devolves to a hackneyed story with no real scares or even events of note and ends in a ridiculously overwraught way.
First off, the main character. He's a book hunter. This means he seeks out rare books for wealthy clients. One such client asks him to go to a monastery in mainland Europe where a first folio of Shakespeare's work exists. He goes out there, chit chats to some monks, and we get a lot of descriptive passages about moonlight monasteries. Then he's off to the Bodleian in Oxford where we get more passages about the old architecture of Oxford, more descriptions of old books, and more chit chatting. Scared yet? Me either. And quite bored too.
Then there's the "ghost". There's no Scooby-Doo type reveal where we find out it's not real, this is Susan Hill - the ghost is real. But it's never as scary as Hill would like to think. A ghostly hand clasping a real hand - is this scary to anyone? It feels like an echo of the scene in "Woman in Black" where the main character is stood in the dark at the top of the stairs and feels the ghost move past him. It was creepy in that instance but here just feels - well, not scary. Not scary and actually very tedious as this is the extent of the scares in this book.Read more ›

I quite liked this Susan Hill story, was scary in parts but actually quite touching. Great twist at the end too. Only disappointment was it was not long enough.Published 23 months ago by kylie brooke mcvicar

Story line held my interest. Found myself regretting when I had to stop reading, impatient to get back to it.Published on August 7, 2013 by D. Beach
Despite her relatively modest output, Susan Hill has to be one of the best living writers of the ghost story in the classic British tradition. Read morePublished on July 24, 2013 by tularosa
