Product description

First published in 1983, The Woman in Black is Susan Hill's best-loved novel, and the basis for the UK's second longest ever running stage play, and a major film starring Daniel Radcliffe. Arthur Kipps, a young lawyer, travels to a remote village to put the affairs of a recently deceased client, Alice Drablow in order. As he works alone in her isolated house, Kipps begins to uncover disturbing secrets - and his unease grows when he glimpses a mysterious woman dressed in black. The locals are strangely unwilling to talk about the unsettling occurrence, and Kipps is forced to uncover the true identity of the Woman in Black on his own, leading to a desperate race against time when he discovers her true intent...

I adore this book, though I would hardly call it a novel. The story of The Woman in Black is creepy an frightening. I simply loved it and by the end your left with your mouth open feeling for the Aurthur Kipps. The beginning was horribly SLOW and it does take a good while to get into the scary bits. All together though it makes for a wonderful ghost story.

The Woman in Black has all the creepiness of a true ghost story. The beginning is SLOW and it takes ages to get into the scary bits but I truly did love this book. Not to mention the cover is hauntingly beautiful.
