Read in March, 2011

This is really not my kind of book. I've decided I don't like the 'gothic' genre much, if it's about ghosts that might be ghosts or might not. And the language was a little to flowery for me. Mice 'skitter' or 'scamper': they never simply run. The prose wasn't quite purple, but I thought it was a light mauve. Also, it was very very bleak. I might not have been in the right mood for it. I gave it three stars because I can see that it was well-written in parts and imaginative and I can definitely see how other people might like it.
