Well, when i started this book i expected a ghost mystery, I knew it is going to be a mystery but I expected to understand something for the Woman in white, but there was nothing except one theory and how Jone became paranoid and there were many deviations from the main story - memories of Jenny when her car broke and things like that, things with no connection to the story.

And the end really disappointed me, nothing was explained or finished. We still don't know who is the Woman in white is the

I am a HUGE fan of horror. I just love how my skin tingles and my heart pounds when I read those scary, horror novels. Just like every human being should have a daily dose of humour, he/she should also have a daily dose of horror. My favorite horror author is Edgar Allan Poe, he is the KING of horror. No one can write as well as Poe, not even Colin Campbell. But still, The Lady In White was SCARY, literally! I loved the idea, the storyline is very well developed but the end was just not meaning ...more
The writing was bad but the buildup was good, so although this book was clearly intended for a younger reader, I was bummed that the ending wasn't freakier. I have to admit that it was novel... it's not often that seeing a ghost can be both frightening and a relief at the same time... but it was way tamer than I was hoping for.
Kind of scary at some points (don't let this scare you off, I get scared VERY easily). It just keeps you reading to find out what the heck is going on.

Recommends it for: someone who likes mysterious (ghost) stories...
I had to read this book for school. I really enjoyed it although it's a little bit scary. And the end is quite disappointing.
Didn't get this book at all. Started well but was just plain weird.. sorry not one I would recommend to anyone!

3. This book has a great mystery. That was the reason I chose this book; however, when I finished it, I saw that I really do not like mystery. Actually I like mysterious story, but at the end of the story I wish to learn all things. While story was continuing, it should keep mystery, but when we came to end. It should explain all mysteries. This book finishes with significant mystery. Thorough the story we read about a woman who wear white dress, but we do not know who she is. Hence, if I have a

The writing wasn't great, storyline's alright. Probably would have found it more scary if I was younger. Gave it to a 7th Grader today and he seems to be enjoying it.
Useless plot, useless story, no point, absolutely disliked it. Not recommended.
i think this book is the best book ever,it is about a man and his wife and kid who lives in a house. one day he realise his wife and his son disapperd.

when you read this story you can't have a break you want to know what is going to happen next.

honestly i havent read it yet but i think it is great story though.

-White, tape recorder, hitch hiker, trip, family, rainy, dream
-do you wan to hitch hike to travel?
No, because it is too scary to get on stranger's car.
-this story is interesting because I can' t expect what's gonna happen end of the story.
