The audio was narrated by Simon Vance, and I enjoyed his performance very much. I love his voice - first heard him when I listened to BRING UP THE BODIES which was wonderful!
THE LITTLE STRANGER is a slow-burn, atmospheric novel of suspense. I thought it was beautifully written, quite absorbing, and downright creepy at times.
It was a story that I looked forw 3. It was a story that I looked forward to jumping back into. That said, I also thought it was a bit too long and drawn out, and the ending doesn't wrap up with a tidy bow.
Set in the late s, this book centers around an English physician's relationship with a down-on-its-luck aristocratic family and their crumbling ancestral home called Hundreds Hall.
Odd things are happening in the house, and family members suspect the cause is a malicious supernatural presence, but the doctor is not easily convinced.
Like I mentioned before, there's no neat and tidy ending where everything is explained, which is a bit frustrating.
I drew my own conclusions from the evidence given, and I suppose I'll have to be satisfied with that.
An eerie,engrossing haunted house tale. The plot pulls you in and holds you firmly in it's grip. A deep,disturbing, gothic ghost story of the highest order.
Subtle and poignant. I could not put it down! View all 13 comments. Pandemic rereads 3 I first read The Little Stranger when it was published in paperback, in As with many of my most-loved novels, I have occasionally gone back to flip through it and read pages at random; also, I have often reread the ending, which is my favourite, I think, of any book.
But I hadn't read it in full since that first time. Reading something like this, now, takes me back to a time when I read books in a completely different way.
My Goodreads shelves from are full of books Pandemic rereads 3 I first read The Little Stranger when it was published in paperback, in My Goodreads shelves from are full of books I chanced across at the library or bought because they were cheap.
I didn't entirely understand the distinction between literary and genre fiction; I was only just beginning to understand my own tastes; I wasn't yet writing proper reviews.
Even though I wasn't at some particularly impressionable age when I read it, I don't think it's an exaggeration to say that The Little Stranger was a formative book for me.
The idea that I might not like it as much second time around didn't even cross my mind. And I was right — I still think it's about as perfect as a novel can be.
The story is set in the late s and told from the perspective of Faraday, a country doctor in Warwickshire.
In the third chapter, he is invited to a small party at nearby Hundreds Hall, a grand — but now declining — house he has admired since childhood.
At the party, there is an unfortunate accident which reflects badly on the Ayres family, the owners of Hundreds, and also binds Faraday to them.
Thereafter, he becomes a regular visitor to the Hall and develops a friendship with its inhabitants: Mrs Ayres, the widowed matriarch; Roderick, the son and heir, injured in the war; and his sister Caroline, to whom Faraday is attracted, despite frequently describing her plain, unappealing appearance.
At around the same time, strange things start to happen at Hundreds. Black marks and scratched words appear on the walls and ceilings; objects disappear when someone's back is turned, then reappear in odd places; furniture seems to move of its own volition.
Is the place haunted? Roderick comes to believe the house is infected with something, a thing from which he must protect his mother and sister.
Mrs Ayres wonders whether it could be the spirit of her first daughter, Susan, who died as a little girl.
Meanwhile, Faraday grows closer to Caroline, and his obsession with Hundreds tightens its grip. The first time I read The Little Stranger, I think I was quite spooked by the 'hauntings'.
This time, they elicited little response from me; in fact, I was quite surprised by how small a part of the greater story they seemed. I think this is because I knew what I was looking for.
If I couldn't remember every twist of the plot, I certainly remembered how it ended, and I knew which character to study closely, which moments to analyse.
This made my second reading a less surprising, yet more rewarding, experience. Waters' prose is impeccable. The narrative describes everything — it's rich with detail, fussy with detail, but it has to be.
So much of what Faraday notices is telling. So much of what he describes illuminates his motives.
It's the opposite of the clean and self-consciously witty style that's in fashion now, and I have to say I think I prefer it.
A handful of scenes near the end — Faraday's last with Caroline — are especially masterful: we are seeing things through Faraday's eyes, but Waters makes us understand them through Caroline's.
And not to bang on about it, but the ending. THE ENDING! I am quite happy to say that The Little Stranger has the best closing paragraph of any novel I have ever read.
It is a five-line masterwork, and if it isn't being taught on creative writing courses everywhere then it definitely should be.
TinyLetter Original review December ? I don't know why I didn't write a review of this when I read it, presumably because I didn't have time - I'll have to rectify this at some point, but would have to read the book in full again in order to do it justice.
I can say that I thought it was absolutely wonderful - an automatic addition to my all-time favourites list; I'd give it six stars if I could.
It seems to have divided opinion among other readers, and I'd love to say I understand why, but actually I don't. In my eyes The Little Stranger is an outstanding book with one of the most brilliant, subtle, yet absolutely revelatory endings I have ever read.
View 1 comment. Recommended to Shovelmonkey1 by: thrift and a passing acquaintance with this authors other works. Shelves: almost-chick-lit , kitten-squishers , booker-prize-nominee , read-in Unlike other goodreaders I seem to have come to this book with no great expectations.
Sarah Waters is a writer whose books I have acquired in the past purely on the grounds that there are huge herds of them roaming charity shops and second hand book stores a joy and peril of being a best seller I guess , and therefore they are easy to get hold of for next to no money.
Sorry Sarah, I got all your books CHEAP! So no lady love this time from Waters and not a lot of successful hetero love either. This is a tale of post war decay in the country as the landed classes come to terms with the fact that a Great War is a great leveller and the class system is rapidly breaking down.
At the centre of this is Hundreds Hall, a once stunning and now slightly creepy historic home still occupied by the Ayres family who live there on vastly diminished terms but have still kept their status within the county.
But there is something else lurking at Hundreds Hall amongst the weeds and rust and peeling wall paper and it's more sinister than mildew or dry rot well sort of.
The trusted family doctor relates the tale as his life becomes closely interwoven with that of the family and gets a front row seat in time to watch their collective mental health unravel faster than a ball of wool with a platoon of kittens at one end.
Many have rightly asserted that this is neither full on ghost story or an assessment of the plight of the landed gentry in the wake of the war however that doesn't detract from the overall charm of the story and as always Sarah Waters has produced a well written page turner.
True she won't be arm wrestling with Edgar Allen Poe for the rights to the crown of Gothic horror writer and Wilkie Collins has little to fear actually perhaps we should fear both of them since they're dead but whatever.
Scarily well written and compelling but I couldn't help feeling that this would have been better if The Little Stranger had been, well, a little stranger.
View all 4 comments. I have to admit it, I was disappointed in this book. Yes, I gave it 3. I know some of you out there know what I'm feeling.
I'm not going to get into the plot too much The estate is as much a character as the people, and I liked it more than some of them.
There is the matter of the family that owns the house and the reduction of their status in society. There is the matter of 3.
There is the matter of the family doctor who keeps coming round, though he never seems to be of help to the family living in the home, as one by one, they fall victim to the house and its evil machinations.
Or was it the house at all? Perhaps it was a ghost? Perhaps it was madness? These are the questions that kept me reading. This story was well written, but not as well told as I had hoped.
I felt that pages could easily have been deleted and the story would have lost nothing. The atmosphere was rich in detail and setting, but not so much in the feeling.
I hope this makes sense to you. This tale had the feel of M. James to it, but there's no doubt in my mind-James did it better and in far less words.
Overall, I enjoyed this tale-be it of a haunted house, a psychological horror story, or a commentary on society, or all of the above.
I just wish it had been a little bit shorter, more atmospheric, and held a few more thrills. Recommended for patient fans of haunted house stories.

In "The Little Stranger", we get to follow one doctor and one family living in Hundreds Hall. The whole story is set around these characters as their stories are entwined and their destinies develop in macabre directions.
The first part of the book is very much about the characters, whereas the second part is more about the haunted happenings going on at Hundreds Hall.
Dr Faraday confirms her death to be a suicide. However, before Faraday leaves the house, a spectre of a young boy can be seen watching him.
This ending is confusing for many fans, as the spectre of young Faraday has no concrete explanation.
Some fans believe that the young Faraday at the end signified that Dr Faraday was Caroline's killer. However, this is never confirmed and it very likely that Caroline was killed by the ghost of the house.

Caroline, however, is listless and uninterested in the wedding, eventually calling it off and making plans to sell Hundreds Hall.
Faraday is unable to believe it and tries several times to talk Caroline out of it, to no avail. On the night of their would-be wedding, Faraday has a call that keeps him out.
When he finally comes home, he learns that Caroline hurled herself off the second floor onto a marble landing, killing herself. The maid reports at the inquest that she awoke to hear Caroline go upstairs to investigate a sound she heard in the darkened hall.
She simply said "You! Three years later, Faraday continues to visit the abandoned mansion, unable to find what Caroline saw.
Sara O'Leary in The Gazette states that Waters' narrative voice is her strongest asset and that she has an "uncanny ability to synthesize her research and is never expository in the telling details she draws upon—tiny little things about what people wore or ate or had in their houses".
Waters is known in her previous four novels for providing plot twists, but this one, notes Donoghue, provides a straightforward accounting that tackles issues of insanity, poltergeists , and family secrets "with a minimum of tricks".
In The Sunday Telegraph , John Preston writes that "the richness of Waters's writing ensures that the air of thickening dread is very thick indeed.
Everything, from Mrs Ayres's 'absurdly over-engineered shoes', to the hairs on Caroline's legs—each one 'laden with dust, like an eye-blacked lash'—is described with a wonderfully sharp eye.
The ghost stories that I've enjoyed are uncanny, unsettling and eerie more than they are about in-your-face pyrotechnics.
I wanted it to be very based in the social context of the time, but for it to have this extra element of strangeness. Several references in The Little Stranger indicate the influences Waters used in its composition.
Rebecca Starford in The Australian praises Waters' ability to use elements from other authors: "Waters is one of the great contemporary storytellers.
She has never made bones about borrowing", noting that her inspirations for this story were Daphne du Maurier , Henry James , Agatha Christie , and Charles Dickens.
Like the narrator of du Maurier's Rebecca , Faraday has no first name; the man overcome by the house in Poe's The Fall of the House of Usher is also named Roderick.
Peter Cannon in Publishers Weekly writes that the novel is evocative of Henry James' The Turn of the Screw and Shirley Jackson 's The Haunting of Hill House.
As a doctor, Faraday is a rational narrator who confronts each member of the Ayres family and the maids in turn as they divulge their suspicions that something in the house is alive.
As he consults with other physicians, they are able to explain away the strange happenings easily with answers supplied by medicine and psychology.
The restless Rod, now living out of the ground floor library and threatening to sell the mansion, grows increasingly distraught by a curious burning smell with no source.
Service bells incessantly ring for no reason and strange sounds continue to disturb the peace of the household.
There's even ample blood and a handsomely puzzling twist to round off the gothic story; one that will bury many in deep thought long after the credits roll.
Faraday, a poker-faced man of destructive obsession and leachy persistence. Tomris Laffly is a freelance film writer and critic based in New York.
Rated R for some disturbing bloody images. Set in , the plot follows a doctor who visits an old house where his mother used to work, only to discover it may hold a dark secret.
The film was released in the United States on 31 August , by Focus Features , and received positive reviews from critics.
In s Warwickshire , Dr. Faraday is called to visit a sick maid at the dilapidated Hundreds Hall. The maid confesses to faking and hopes the doctor will send her home.
The Hall now belongs to Roderick Ayres, a scarred Royal Air Force veteran severely burned in the Second World War, who is being nursed by his sister, Caroline.
Faraday recalls during his childhood in visiting the home, where his beloved mother had once been a maid to the grand Ayres family. He broke an acorn from an elaborate plaster carving, to his mother's anger, in view of young Susan, the Ayres' first daughter, known as Suki.
There are intermittent noises occurring in the house, alarming Caroline, Mrs Ayres and the maid. The servants' bells sound without anyone ringing them.
A 19th-century tube communication device linking the empty nursery to the kitchen also begins to sound inexplicably. When Mrs Ayres goes upstairs to investigate, she is suddenly locked in the nursery.
Experiencing shadowy figures and strange banging noises, Mrs Ayres, in a frantic attempt to escape, breaks the windows, cutting both arms.
