    "A rare find in the world of ghost stories!"

    Believe me when I say I have read a lot of ghost stories!
    This is so well-written (by the author of The Woman in Black) and the descriptions are so vivid that it is like being right there in a haunted library at a very old boys school in England. Many other locales and situations in the book spring to life with the able narration of Matt Addis. I am so reluctant to have this book end that I have been rationing it out on my walks to make it last!
    Get it - you will not regret it, and you will have a good story to listen to around the fire as autumn and the holidays approach. There is a great chapter showcasing Christmas in the English countryside.
    It is so rewarding to find a tale like this - enjoy!
    Thank you Susan Hill!

    "COULD NOT STOP LISTENING"
    Would you listen to Mist in the Mirror again? Why?

    No red herrings, thoroughly spooky. I liked the archaic language and the fact that nothing gave a clue to the ending.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Mist in the Mirror?

    When he is locked in the tomb. I was terrified.


    What about Matt Addis’s performance did you like?

    Good voice, nice diction, excellent characterizations. He handles for formal language style with ease and lures you in.


    Any additional comments?

    Although I started reading Susan Hill for the Serrailler series (which is fabulous and one of my favourites) her other stories are equally addictive (except for Gullywith).

    "Not quite what I had hoped for"
    Any additional comments?

    I was disappointed by Mist In The Mirror because it did not grip me as much as I had expected from the author's reputation and other reviews I had read. The basic storyline is good but there is an awful lot of meandering and extraneous detail that I found a bit dull. I was expecting a modern style but the book is written with a Victorian feel. This does fit its subject but I found myself drifting away and missing sections that were probably important.
