The Woman in Black: A Ghost Story
by Susan Hill
This delivers exactly as promised–a chilling ghost story in the Victorian Gothic style, with excellent atmosphere and a great narrator. It reminded me a lot of Sarah Waters’ The Little Stranger, although this is novella-length. I’m looking forward to the movie, which is coming out in February 2012 with Daniel Radcliffe in the lead role. The author, Susan Hill, also wrote a delightful book for bibliophiles called Howards End Is on the Landing: A Year of Reading from Home.
