This was excellent much than the 3 star would imply It s 35 stars The reason I didn t go for 4 was because of the ending Up until that portion of the last 3 pages it was fully 4 stars Why Because of the mood it set and the depth of the creepiness The descriptive language and sinuous twisting grasp of malice that just entwined Not only you the reader either For some reason the length of this novella heightened the effect did not lessen it It s a one sitting goose bumps and hair rising on your neck interlude In fact much later I had it pop into my head and that heaviness of dread returned immediately Exactly as if you were being watched knew it and still have full cognition that it could not be true at the same timeSlight spoiler ahead but it certainly changes little of the plot What failed for me was that it became beyond macabre and into ridiculous when the final wife Anne wanted a Venetian honeymoon after the new husband s hearing of the former long history and what he has witnessed Come on Pulls of the super normal or spell of the painting those non withstanding Her husband would have opted for Paris and ditched the painting back to the old lady as soon as his old college prof s corpse was cold The damn thing was laying on the floor anyway who would have known He would not have caved into a Venice for the gift of three separate country estates That kind of malice depicted in this tale does exist Anger turned both inward and outward like a toddler who will hold its breath and pass out when not getting his her way in tantrum as long as the agony of noise and chaos of continued curse spreads Revenge and that angry outrage of dissatisfaction is poison both to self and to others When the poison is spread so widely as in this story Horror Susan Hill could write truly fixate that mood and malicious intent Sublimely

Susan Hill ä 8 Read Free read Þ The Man in the Picture A Ghost Story 108 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. 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 collection in its depiction of a Venetian carnival scene he notices a barely noticeable man observing the festivities with horror and shock apparently against his will From Oliver s retelling we learn how the painting came into the tutor s possession and how he afterwards met an elderly countess who wished to obtain it for her own collection the tutor is unwilling to relinuish it wishing to learn the identity of the man in the picture and both he and Oliver will learn than they both bargained forThis is a story which could be told around a campfire or in a cold winter common room at a English university decades ago when there was no radio or television and even books weren t as available as they are now A seasoned teller could properly build up the atmosphere and sustain tension and dread all the way to the very end when the listeners would depart and find themselves unable to sleep in their cold creaking beds This isn t the case here as the story itself resembles the bare bones of a greater effort than the effort itself A foundation was laid but the mansion remains unfinished which is a shame Susan Hill has all the potential and ability to write ghost stories in the classical way but her writing needs innovation and less inspiration to unnerve and chill this reader

    Characters The Man in the Picture A Ghost Story Free read Þ The Man in the Picture A Ghost Story 108 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 absolutely no explanation of how she obtained this picture or managed to interact with it to strike at not only the origin
