Reviews

No one chills the heart like Susan Hill * Daily Telegraph *
An excellent ghost story... magnificently eerie... compulsive reading * Evening Standard *
A rattling good yarn, the sort that chills the mind as well as the spine * Guardian *
Heartstoppingly chilling * Daily Express *
Terrifying... creepy classic * Daily Mail *
Susan Hill is the reigning queen of ghost writers and her period novella...is a classic, broodingly creepy and at times terrifying -- Michael Hogan * Observer *
Hill's haunting tales may be slim, but they pull no punches... * Harper's Bazaar *
She writes with great power... Authentically chilling * Daily Telegraph *
One of the strongest stories of supernatural horror...the work bursts into life and does not flag until the end * Washington Post *
Irresistibly dramatic... Susan Hill has done the genre real honour * Chicago Tribune *
It is bursting with classic Gothic horror motifs and Susan Hill is a master of atmospheric descriptions. She evokes so cleverly the decrepit Eel Marsh House, the mention of its name enough to make the locals pause, their faces darken in unspoken wariness... The Woman in Black gives a thrilling sense of unease and provides just the right level of things that go bump in the night for a spine-tingling good read. * Khoollect *
This spine-tingling novel... will certainly keep your nerves jangling * Woman's Weekly *
