The book is not like other fictional stories that start the action from chapter one. The action and the story opens in a slow pattern. After chapter three the story takes pace and then Joseph Sheridan Le Fanu gets on with it till the end. The narration department is a team including Rose Leslie, David Horovitch, James Wilby and Susan Wooldridge. All the narrators are used quite well because the sounds don’t mix together in one another, there is a nice chemistry between all of the narrators.

The appealing portion of the story appears when the fiction joins along with horror that is marvelously written by the writer and depicted tremendously. There are special sound effects that we don’t see in books like The Familiar or other books by the author. A good one the plot and climax which is usually not strong in horror tales but this one has a nice rise in the plot in first two chapters. In the third chapter there is a sheer fall that gives the feeling of a roller coaster. The characters are unique and common at the same time.

They mingle well the atmosphere and the local public but at the same time they possess some dark secrets as well which separate them from the rest of the general public. Experimentation is seen at different aspects during the painting of the tale and it was writer’s intentions to give a new dimension to his art. Luckily the writer has not spoiled the show through over garnishing in all the portions of the novel whether it is scene description or character sketching of the actors.
