Short stories by Dickens, Mary Wilkins Freeman, Hans Christian Andersen and others. Lovely, as substantial as a snow flake, and full of morales to guide good little boys and girls. You'll have visions of sugarplums dancing in your head.
Mrs. Freeman's stories are all the more scary because the horrors are objects of everyday life. The mirror that reflects the wrong face. The clothes that try to kill the wearer. She lets the suspense creep up on you slowly but effectively. Lots of fun.
Banish the Hollywood plot lines from your mind before you read this. There's no love interest, and the story is even darker than the films.
If you rent a house everyone says is haunted, don't be surprised if your wife starts seeing 'things.' A passable 'ghost' story goes off the rails in an entirely new direction three-fourths of the way through the book. Annoying rather than entertaining. Maybe Miss Green was bored, too.
See it as donating a moment of your social media time, every little thing helps us improve and stay online.
