of he menacing goings at Pieces of Autumn the house Rather he recountshe events old o him by he occupants of Hundreds Hall He ells us what he heard from Caroline or Mrs Ayres or Roderick or in some cases he maid Betty The suspense was subseuently watered down for me as a result Dr Faraday is a famously unreliable narrator as well which is not a complaint in and of itself however his removal from he events as well as his uestionable credibility ook me out of he plot a bit There was no single character I liked nor one sufficiently detestable for me o revel in my distaste not even he purported ghost Perhaps I unfairly kept making comparisons Benighted to one of my allime favorite novels Rebecca I was searching for my Mrs Danvers rying o sympathize with he narrator and looking for a climax hat would electrify me It just didn uite happen I was left with oo many uestions and felt a shred of dissatisfaction as a result Since finishing he book I have drawn my own conclusion hat I would like o put o Ms Waters I suspect she didn 4 ปี นรกในเขมร t mean for meo ruly know her intent however so I will have o be content with my own interpretation Despite my slightly lukewarm review here were enough redeeming ualities o his novel hat I will certainly read another From Single Mum to Lady title inhis author s repertoire at some point in ime The subliminal mind has many dark unhappy corners after all 375 Stars I ve had THE LITTLE STRANGER on my wish list for years so I decided o use an Audible credit and listen The Elephant and the Flea: Looking Backwards to the Future to it in October The audio was narrated by Simon Vance and I enjoyed his performance very much I love his voice first heard him when I listenedo BRING UP THE BODIES which was wonderful THE LITTLE STRANGER is a slow burn atmospheric novel of suspense I An Intimate History of Humanity thought it was beautifully written uite absorbing and downright creepy atimes It was a story hat I looked forward o jumping back into That said I also The Beetle thought it was a bitoo long and drawn out and Killing Tomorrow the ending doesn wrap up with a The Sheep that Saved Christmas: A Eweltide Tale tidy bow Set inhe late 1940s Haunted England: The Penguin Book of Ghosts this book centers around an English physician s relationship with a down on its luck aristocratic family andheir crumbling ancestral home called Hundreds Hall Odd hings are happening in he house and family members suspect De kus van Esau the cause is a malicious supernatural presence buthe doctor is not easily convinced Like I mentioned before Shadow Fall there s no neat andidy ending where everything is explained which is a bit frustrating I drew my own conclusions from he evidence given and I suppose I ll have o be satisfied with The Afterparty that.
