    I was excited about this collection because, while I ve enjoyed all of Hill s previous ghost stories, I ve always felt they re consistently spread a little thin Hill s plots feelsuited to the brevity of a short story, but they are usually padded out to novella length, something that has often served to highlight the weaknesses in otherwise wonderfully creepy tales and, ironically, also tends to leave them feeling incomplete The Travelling Bag and Other Ghostly Stories is a small book c I was excited about this collection because, while I ve enjoyed all of Hill s previous g...

    Short story collections provide a great mix of quick reads, hence why I love them so much I was really looking forward to this one as I love a good scary story but unfortunately, this one didn t live up to expectations.I have reviewed each story individually below THE TRAVELLING BAGThe first short in the collection didn t grab me from the get g...

    Susan Hill is a very accomplished author and I will state here and now I have not read her other journeys through other genres For me Susan Hill is the author of the modern day ghost story classic Woman in Black and for me is the quintessential author of classic ghost story.So here we have another short collection I think there are less than 200 pages consisting of a number of longer stories all with a macabre twist To try and explain what you have here is very difficult to do made all bu Susan Hill is a very accomplished author and I will state here and now I have not read her other journeys through other genres For me Susan Hill is the author of the modern day ghost story classic Woman in Black and for me is the quintessential author of classic ghost story.So here we have another short collection I think there are less than 200 pages consisting of a number of longer stories all with a macabre twist To try and explain what you have here is very difficult to do made all but impossible with my self imposed rule of no spoilers but what I can say is what you will not find.Susan Hill relies of subtle building of tension so no violence no sex or gore just a well practi...

    I do enjoy Susan Hill s ghost stories but was left sadly rather unimpressed with this collection.The first story is entertaining but there seem to be some inaccuracies how can the narrator recount an event he wasn t party to and to which nobody spoke of The ending was predictable but well written nonetheless.Boy Twenty one is exactly the kind of ghostly tale I usually enjoy, but it felt a little lacking I was left with a lotquestions than answers and it felt a little unfinished I thin I do enjoy Susan Hill s ghost stories but was left sadly rather unimpressed with this collection.Th...

    These are elegantly written, as Hill s stories always are but lack the chill of her best ghostly work We do get to see the range of her imagination from the Victorian setting of The Travelling Bag to the unusual 1950s suburbia of The Front Room , the weakest of the tales Boy Number 21 is gorgeously melanchol...

    The Travelling bag by Susan Hill is a collection of short ghost stories in the classic English ghost story form These stories remind me of M.R James and other famous ghost writers I would recommend this book to any reader who enjoys the old style of ghost stories My favourite story in this collection was the same as the title of the collection it has that classic feel that I really enjoy I have only one criticism is that this book isn t original, so for that reason I ll rate this a four star The Travel...
