it was amazing
Read from February 27 to 28, 2012

Started this last night and was spooked by the story as I put out the light.
So i read some more today in the daylight and found it wasn't frightening any more, just a riveting story.
The premise is a fantastical one but the story is so well written that it's believable.
Isabel is a sympathetic character in an isolated and lonely setting. It's not beyond the bounds of possibility that her imagination takes over , or does it?
My favourite line..."Isabel's hair crisped at the roots with terror."
