The Woman in Black by Susan Hill

The Woman in Black - Susan Hill

 

I was very disappointed with this book. It's much shorter than I thought it was going to be, for one. That's my fault for not checking to see how many pages it was.

 

I found the prose to be overly descriptive. I get it, the house is located in a marsh by the sea. I get it that there is fog. I get it that the only road to the house is underwater during high tide. Enough already, where is the woman? Even when the woman shows up, the story continues to be boring.

 

I did not find this book to be even remotely scary. There were a couple of chilling scenes and that was about it. If you are looking for a good scare, look somewhere else.

 

 

*I'm still finding some books and reviews that did not import over to BL from Goodreads. When I come across them, I add them here.*
