That's one of my other half's birthday presents sorted then! He has adored her ghost stories since he frightened himself reading The Woman in Black on holiday 21 years ago!

Those books are not to be read when alone in the house, I think!

LizF

He read it in a dimly lit mobile home in France when we were on holiday with three children, the youngest 7 weeks old. It was very quiet and he had obviously got to a tense bit because when one of the older children rolled over in bed and kicked the partition wall, he jumped and dropped the book!

Personally I read these books in broad daylight, generally at the office which is the least spooky place I know!

Cornflower

I'd do the same, Liz - light, bright, plenty of people around ...

ctussaud

puts me in mind of Turn of the screw.

Cornflower

Indeed.
