The Woman in Black
The Woman in Black: A Ghost Story | Susan Hill
The classic ghost story by Susan Hill: a chilling tale about a menacing spectre haunting a small English town. Arthur Kipps is an up-and-coming London solicitor who is sent to Crythin Gifford—a faraway town in the windswept salt marshes beyond Nine Lives Causeway—to attend the funeral and settle the affairs of a client, Mrs. Alice Drablow of Eel Marsh House. Mrs. Drablow’s house stands at the end of the causeway, wreathed in fog and mystery, but Kipps is unaware of the tragic secrets that lie hidden behind its sheltered windows. The routine business trip he anticipated quickly takes a horrifying turn when he finds himself haunted by a series of mysterious sounds and images—a rocking chair in a deserted nursery, the eerie sound of a pony and trap, a child’s scream in the fog, and, most terrifying of all, a ghostly woman dressed all in black. Psychologically terrifying and deliciously eerie, The Woman in Black is a remarkable thriller of the first rate.

Still not that big into audiobooks (I can read books in at least half the time). Still, this one was quite enjoyable. While I prefer the movie, (as it‘s my favorite ghost movie), this isn‘t as dragging and garrulous as a lot of classic ghost stories tend to be. It was quite spooky, even if the “good stuff” only came in the 2nd half. I also love the dog. I mean, his name is “Spider”. Such a great name for a dog 😂

3rd book in halfoweenathon challenge was to read a book with movie adaptation.Movie was so different. I liked this ghostly story.I enjoyed very much how it was written, Arthur Kipp character was so well described on how he struggled between his rational and irrational mind? Supernatural? It was a sad story. I felt that I was in that house feeling that ghost.Story is slow not scary but more psychological? emotional? Book was received in swap3.8⭐️

As with many, many books that become movies this is no exception, The Woman in Black by Susan Hill is vastly superior in its book form. A brilliant read for anyone interested in horror.

I‘ve never been much for the big tropes in horror: ghosts, vampires, zombies - but this book was really good. I liked her way of writing a lot. Long, elaborate, descriptive sentences weaving a captivating yarn.

Atmospheric and quick. Wasn‘t as spooky as I was hoping but I think that‘s just because I watch so many paranormal TV shows that I don‘t spook easy. Written in a style that reads like a classic, it was easy to fall into the story. Definitely enjoyable, just lacking on the spook. #screamathon

A classic English ghost story, but written in 1983, The Woman in Black is chilling, atmospheric, and a perfect October read. The movie was a fairly faithful adaption, but Hill‘s wonderful prose should be experienced first, if possible.

I‘m a sucker for a horror story (but incidentally not a horror film) and Susan Hill definitely makes the list of favourite authors in the genre. I have to admit, I like my horror just a bit more punchy - this book is scary, but in a creeping, nervous kind of way. There‘s really no out and out frights but as ever Susan Hill manages to create a strong sense of foreboding with her writing. One word to describe this ... eerie.

I just finished watching The Secrets of Crickley Hall and wanted more. I did look up James Herbert but my library didn‘t have his books available in ebook format. So I went to Amazon and hesitated to buy anything at the moment. One review mentioned Susan Hill‘s The Woman in Black. Luckily my library had it. It is really fulfilling that need for a spooky setting and that 1940‘s dramatic feel.

It IS scary but not in a conventional way. It only has a woman in black and the sound of a child dying. I wouldn't be that scared if not for Susan Hill's narrative. She is the queen of adjectives. She'll describe fear in 20+ words that you won't have any excuse but to feel it! I was reading this book while riding to train (never in the dark or alone!) but still I got goosebumps. That's how good Susan Hill is.

This book should be read in the daytime, with lots of sun shining in through the windows, in a house full of other people. Not like I did, in the dark, in a house with strange noises and the only other person present was a sleeping 10 year old. This was scary, atmospheric and awesome. I felt chilled to my bone, and I could see spooky women standing everywhere.

I've been horribly lax with reviews of late & have yet to get around to reviewing two other past reads.
About this: I love M.R. James-esque traditional ghost stories, & TWIB is a masterpiece in that niche. It takes the trope of the non-believer encountering uncanny forces but handles it in a subtle way, so that the haunting sequences aren't in-your-face but are akin to the murky shadow of a shark underwater, making them all the more unnerving. 👇

rohit-sawant As the suspense unfolds, the MC's fear magnifies, but it also twines with empathy which lends more substance to the story. The ending, however, felt more like that of a short story or one of those 80s freeze frame endings, that's not to say I didn't love it, I did, but it would've been even more terrific had it been stretched out a bit with an aftermath attached. 2y

Maybe I would‘ve liked this better if I‘d read it instead of listening. It‘s an atmospheric ghost story; its strengths are an eerie setting & a persistent sense of quiet dread. Its weaknesses are lack of character development, lack of action, & extreme predictability. I was bored through most of it, until the boredom was replaced by profound sadness. The lackluster voice actor was a good fit for the lackluster protagonist. Would not recommend.

This was such a fun audiobook for October - four-star ghost story! Susan Hill captures the encroaching sense of dread from the marshy English village, as well as the house, its contents and history. She delivers Arthur from a staid solicitor to a quaking mass of frightened man, emotional and changed forever. The ending twist just about broke my heart.

BarbaraTheBibliophage @Cathythoughts Do you mean to ask what the Instant Pot is? It's a pressure cooker with lots of fail-safes and help that the old ones never had. It doesn't always make food in an "instant" but it always has a good depth of flavor. One of my other soup secrets is using homemade chicken or beef stock. I think the flavor is richer than the store bought. 2y

My audiobook mentioned a "sit up & beg bicycle." I'd never heard of such a thing, so, being the good little doobie that i am, I did some research. My search led me to this beauty, made by Beg Bicycles -- in "Persephone Pink." Does anyone have $1025 I can borrow real quick? ?

In general, a "sit up & beg bicycle" is one with curved handlebars, so the rider doesn't have to hunch over. Who knew? ?‍♀️
