Title: The Man in the Picture
Author: Susan Hill
Page Count: 150
I found it pretty difficult to focus on this one while I was reading it, but I don’t think that’s Susan Hill’s fault. I was just going through some stuff in life, and they stopped me from giving it my full attention, at least until about half way through, when I did get a little hooked and started enjoying it.
This is basically a quirky little historical fiction/horror hybrid which has all the hallmarks of a classic Hill tale. It was good but not great, quite a cool little novella, and a little bit of inspiration for me on a project that I’m currently working on. All of that should have spelled a cracking little read, but I suppose it wasn’t really for me. Oh well!
