Rose Reviews ‘The Travelling Bag & Other Ghostly Stories.’
Everything you could expect from Susan Hill
This book attracted me because of the embossed dust cover as I previously mentioned it is so beautiful (being a touchy feely kind of book lover, yes have often been known to stoke books as I take them off the shelf). Fans of ‘The Woman in Black’ will surely love this a I did.
A collection of four short stories
The Travelling Bag – this short story should really come with a warning, especially for those of a nervous disposition and a phobia of fluttery creatures. It is a tale within a tale set in old Victorian times. A story of revenge.
When a hardworking scientist falls ill the student he is mentoring steals his research papers, and then disappears to return later an eminent scientist himself.
Boy Twenty-One – a wonderful ghost story about two lonely boys who become friends, I loved this one.
Alice Baker – a story of mystery and intrigue. Will the office girls get to the bottom of the fact that Alice Baker is a hard worker? No one knows a thing about her and there is often an unpleasant smell surrounding her.
Finally The Front Room – the creepiest and scariest story in the collection. The reason I picked up another lighter book to read to get the images out of my head.
Very highly recommended for fans of Susan Hill
For me a real page turner therefore I give it my top 3 Rose Rating
