The Woman in Black
The Woman in Black - Susan Hill After finishing and loving [b:The Silent Companions|34600633|The Silent Companions|Laura Purcell|https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1489571003s/34600633.jpg|55746774]I really wanted to another gothic/period style ghost story to creep me out and when The Woman In Black came up in in my recommendations feed I was excited about the novel after reading the book's blurb.

What I heard next chilled and horrified me....
The noise of the pony trap grew fainter and then stopped abruptly and away on the marsh was a curious draining, sucking, churning sound, which went on, together with the shrill neighing and whinnying of a horse in panic and then I heard another cry, a shout a terrified sobbing......


A short novel that really should have but didn't pack a punch, it had Most of the elements for the type of ghost story I normally am drawn to, the fog-shrouded house set on the outskirts of a remote English Village where sightings here and there of a ghostly lady all dressed in black.... but unfortunately the story lacked athmoshpere and for this reason it failed to be eerie or anyway creepy for me. The characters were bland and I felt the book a little predictable and repetitive. Having loved [b:The Silent Companions|34600633|The Silent Companions|Laura Purcell|https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1489571003s/34600633.jpg|55746774] [bc:The Silent Companions|36412620|The Silent Companions|Laura Purcell|https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1508003921s/36412620.jpg|55746774]perhaps I was expecting too much from this novel. An ok read but not a book that will cause me any nightmares.

(Audiobook) The Woman in Black
The Woman in Black - Long Barn Books,Paul Ansdell,Susan Hill

This wasn't a bad book at all. It just took far too long to get going. It wasn't until right around the 60% mark or so that I began to get really invested. The writing was lovely, very descriptive and flowing, but the narration of Paul Ansdell is what really lifted this above a 3 star read for me.
