Famous Modern Ghost Stories
I am still busy reading this collection. I just finished 'The Willows'. While it is very well written, I found it rather dull and the slow pace bored me. I did not find this tale particularly scary, although I think it is supposed to evoke a mood of unease, rather than fear. The abrupt ending annoyed me, I couldn't believe that was it. 'The Shadows on the Wall' is next, maybe that will be more suited to my tastes.

Finished 'Shadows'. It was much better than the first, in the sense that I wanted to know what happened next, but once again, the abrupt ending that another reader also complained of left me cold.
