It is very easy to read.But I didn't think the story was so interesting.So,I rated 3. ( )

There are some stories which have a variety of ghosts in this book. Of course, their charactors are very different each other, so we can enjoy reading those stories without dulness. Getting scary, relieved, and excited, we would have a new image of ghosts by the time we shut up this book.
Everytime I saw or hear the word "ghost", I felt scary and imagined their hates and sadness. But, while reading this book, I found that ghosts were originally human, and some of them have love and kindness for us alive. When we feel that, they really exist somewhere as same as their love we can't catch by our eyes. ( )

This book has five stories of horror.
Second story is the most horrible one,I think.
A little boy,Stephen comes to live at Aswarby Hall with Mr Abney,who is his cousin.
There were two childrens who lived there with Mr Abney before Stephen came,but they missed...why?
At last,I understood the mystery very well and was much thrriled.
I think you had better not read this book alone. ( )

What do you do if you hear the sound of tap running in the night?
What do you do if you know there is a ghost in your house?

Ths book contains 5 short stories.
They are horror but sometimes I felt sad becaouse of some unhappy stories.
They weren't scary for me.Probably because I like horror.
If you like horror too,you may feel bored. ( )
