Surrounded by family on a snowy Christmas Eve, the fireplace ablaze, the tree bedecked and aglow....what secret memories could possibly cause the senior Arthur Kipps to tremble with terror when family members turn out the lights and begin telling harmless ghost stories around the tree? Woman in Black is an engrossing classic ghost story--no bells no whistles--with a lush style of writing that lays out an almost palpable atmosphere. Paul Ansdell perfectly captures the spirit (so to speak) of this post-Victorian placed tale with his narration. Very enjoyable, easy listen--and (at least at the time of this posting) a nice little price for the entertainment value.

I loved listening to this book. I was caught up in the story right away and could feel the horror and fear the character in the story felt by the way the narrator read and related the events of the story. I got everything I expected from reading a "Ghost Story." I would recommend this book to anyone who appreciates a good ghost story.

One of the most spine chilling ghost stories ever written. Atmospheric, absorbing, utterly spooky. Be warned, if you are of gentle spirit, this story is not for you. It certainly kept me awake a good few nights and I do not consider myself to be an overly sensitive soul. It will play havoc with your nervous system! Susan Hill is a wonderful novelist and her love of classic ghost stories has clearly driven her to write her own. Master of the ghost story M.R.JAMES would have been proud to have called this story his.

Great story, reads like a diary account. The narrator is fluent and expressive. Recommended.

This has been my favourite story since I saw it first as a play. Since then I have often, read, listened and watched it repeatedly.
It is well worth a listen.
This book gave me goosebumps! It's a really creepy story - don't listen at night in bed like I did!!! It prompted me to watch the movie (the old 1980's version) which is also genuinely unsettling.
