None of the stories are especially spine-chilling, & because of the time period during which they were written they tend to be more thought-provoking than anything else. I found Walter de la Mare's 'The Tree' perhaps the weakest of all the stories (I struggled to keep up with the premise of the narrative) but overall it was a worthwhile & varied collection of tales of dark woods & forests from diverse locations all over the country.
This is in no way a criticism of this particular book, but sometimes the tone of Victorian writers is one of rambling twists & turns which often could do with getting to the point a bit sooner, but maybe that is a reflection upon our 21st century culture of immediacy & the need to move swiftly on elsewhere. Perhaps that is the whole point of immersing yourself in a book in the first place, & this one is certainly worth the effort.
