2 stars is really stretching it as this short story is neither thriller or scary i think it might be because of the time that this was wrote that the themes in the story where a lot more scary for them then a modern audience thats why i give it 2 stars 1 because it wasn't bad and the second because like i siad it was wrote for a different time so i have to give it it's credit there

Not a particularly special ghost story, but nothing particularly irking about it either. It had some nice sentences and good writing, but the plot rather let it down as it just wasn't chilling at all. 2.5 stars.

This is an older tale of ghosts and the tricks of the mind however unfortunately the tale is dated. Unfortunately the tale will not translate well into the modern times. It is an interesting tale where the mind can play tricks on you. However it will be slow to some and not be as good as others.
