The Little Stranger

On the one hand I was expecting to mostly like this as I loved reading The Night Watch a couple of years back. On the other hand I was a bit dubious about it being a ghost story as supernatural elements in books typically annoy me. These about cancelled each other out - I didn’t love it or hate it. I liked the setting and the characters and I thought the ghostly elements were mostly unnecessary and it would have been a much better book without them there, there was enough interest in the story without them.
