Susan Hill ì 7 Review

Cold winter's night its eerie secret is revealed by the ageing don The dark art of the Venetian scene instead of imitating life has the powe. Wonderful scary horrendously sinister and chilled me to the bone After the supreme disappointment I had whilst reading The small hand I think Susan Hill returns to if not uite the top of her game that she reached in The woman in black then certainly pootling around just below the summitThis story is short and swift moving Hints and nudges in the direction of something of horror lurking in the shadows is cleverly built up A picture which is I suppose a common device in ghost stories dominates as gradually character after character falls victim to its horrifying power Indeed the whole reminded me of a number of the stories of MR James though this is not in anyway to take away from the brilliance of Hill s creationThe picture brings a dreadful oppressive atmosphere to the whole story and its ability to some how imprison people within its very oil to have the image change as each is taken is horrible And that horror lasts well after the denouement If you are looking for a ghost story to unnerve and unsettle and then build up to shivering and shaking then this is definitely it Though I would warn you you might take to throwing out surreptitious and worried glances at that oil painting which your granny left you and you are now not so sure about Definitely a Goodread

The Man in the Picture A Ghost Story

R to entrap it To stare into the painting is to play dangerously with the unseen demons it hides and become the victim of its macabre beauty. Susan Hills The Man in The Picture 2007 is on the one hand a safe somewhat predictable almost pedestrian contemporary take on the EdwardianVictorian ghost story that Hill has so successfully done so many times before The Woman in Black et alBut all of that notwithstanding this is the kind of story that Hill tells so very well and to such great effect The Man in The Picture is a deeply satisfying and chilling page turner this time in the almost perfect settings of Cambridge and VeniceNot to be missed

    The Man in the Picture by Susan Hill is a very enjoyable read on a dark winter's evening It has echoes of earlier English ghost stories some of which can't uite be grasped The setting and feel created is reminiscent of MR James and Daphne du Maurier The story is set in College rooms although the university here is Cambridge rather than MR James's Oxford as well as London and also an old country house in a remote part of the North

    The Man in the Picture is a short story which was somehow published as a separate book Even shorter than The Woman in Black the story although well written is similarly unoriginal and largely forgettableThe picture in uestion is described by the main narrator Oliver who himself retells a story told to him by his former university tutor The tutor is fascinated and frightened by an oil painting from his collect

    A man visits his old professor at Cambridge who tells him the strange story of a painting he owns The book's narration becomes a story within a story within a story The pace slowly builds adding a feeling of dread throughout the plot Fans of M R James and Algernon Blackwood will enjoy this weird tale The writing

    this was mediocre at best It was a good idea that of a picture that trapped people in itself but the internal logic was feeble and none of the characters ever came to life OK so the story is that a spurned woman uses this picture to take revenge on the man who would have married her and the woman he preferred There is a
