My last post was about my tbr pile, but I thought I ought to report 'mid duty' that I have wimped out of reading one of them - The Little Stranger by Sarah Waters.
I am scared of the dark,. So what was I thinking when I picked up Waters gothic, ghostly tale, set in a dilapidated mansion in England during the 1940s? I'll tell you. I was thinking how scary can a book be?
I once watched the Shining (gotta love Jack doing his demented Johnny Carson impression), on my own, in the top floor flat of an Edwardian mansion, late at night, so I don't consider myself a complete scaredy cat. So I started, but unlike the late great Magnus Magnusson, I wont be finishing. I only got a short way through, the suspense killed me.
Has anyone else managed to read it?
