    Overall
    "disappointed"

    I stupidly didn't realise that this was a short story book, but thought I'd try it out as I generally like short stories, however I found the stories and the narrator pretty non descript. Very disappointed as I was expecting more oomph from Susan Hill (not sure if they were all written by her).
