    I have a genuine appreciation for Dickens He was and to this day remains an excellent story teller His stories have captured the imagination of people from varying backgrounds and ages since his words first went into print Having said this this book was a struggle I enjoyed it to an extent but as it always is in my case the supernatural themes were only tolerated I've always struggled to read ghost stories etc so it came as no surprise that I struggled with this I gave it a go though and I'm glad I did3 out of 5 stars

    I'm in holiday in the UK at the moment Scotland to be precise and this makes good reading when the world is wet and windy outside and the stories within the pages chill you even further to the bone Not typical Dickens you might think but A Christmas Carol one of his most influential works to me contained that moralistic supernatural tone that can be found in this book

    Only for people who like Charles Dickens style of expressing things

    Creepy weird exactly what you'd expect from short stories from Dickens that have supernatural elements Some are ghost stories some are hauntings some are other worldly creatures Like most short stories you get dropped into the middle of a tale and have very little introductory time before the plot has taken over Setting is usually provided character background rarely I never uite understood why the brother and sister choose to live in the unkept haunted house for example No explanations are ever given for the supernaturals no attempt at rationalizing or anything You accept it or you have to if you want to accept the story Good for a windy winter night or Halloween if you're looking for some classic hair tingling

    I never knew he wrote this book until I found it by accident in my local library when we could browse and no virus thing was around

    Very dissapointed with this collection of short stories I had high expectations based on the fact that I enjoy Dickens' writing tremendously but even though the writing was as elouent and gripping as expected most stories lacked in imagination I would have rated it worse had it not been for the last tale which was the only one that felt adeuately combine the supernatural element with an interesting plot and a fiting end

    A compilation of supernaturalghost stories written by the one and only C Dickens as part of his many classics as well as some individual stories Outstanding He could have ventured into this niche writing too as he could create wonderful mysteries but I guess the wider approach to human life was what won and we have the privilege of reading the books which brought out the human condition in the most impressive and soul touching way possible

    Could barely keep my eyes open Once you've read Stephen King these stories really aren't going to scare you are they Some of them felt a bit half hearted and predictableboring even Most I had to read several times as couldn't work out what was going on or my mind had started drifting and I was thinking about dinner Disappointing
