creatively reviewed I could have achieved plus I do not give spoilersI think the The Forgotten only exception would be the Birds the last story in this collected edition andne which was the basis f Hitchcocks classic The reason why I focus n this ne is that I can be a little lenient with my no spoilers since I am sure everything has either heard r seen the film plus I had a rather strange experience this morning which brought the story in to focusI long thought that the scene in the film with the crows in the play ground was a little contrived stay with me you will get there as it was well know that Hitchcock would not mind bending a few rules if it meant a better cinematic experience Well I thought that the way the birds sounded and acted was a little falsethat was till this morning when The Shadowhunters Codex outside the house where there is a very large tree a large numberf crows started to form and yes they sounded exactly like that I later found The True Story of the 3 Little Pigs out they were hounding a Red Kite which was circling but still it did bring that school house scene to mindAnd so I set about reading the stories and considering the book was 300 pages plus I forgot how east it was to get drawn in to her workEnough to say that the story from this book is far powerful and harrowing by the simplicityf which Ms du Maurier describes the events It is times like these that remind me that re reading a book sometimes can be even striking that reading it for the first time I am a huge fan Damnable Grace: Hades Hangmen Series, Book 5 of short story collections Insteadf reading a chapter r two while waiting for the doctor you can knock ut a whole story This collection wasn t the best f the best but it did entertain Don t Look Now 4 Stars A husband and wife n holiday after a family loss find themselves in the middle Play Something Dancy of much than they expectedIt makes sense that this story is thene that had a movie made from it It had great buildup and the ending was Stella one that the reader wouldn t expect A Border Line Case 3 Stars A daughter decides to track down a friend from her father s past and learns that some searches are better left undoneThe ending wasbvious from the beginning but it was entertaining I liked that it wasn t as description heavy as some Phoebe and Her Unicorn Activity Book of thether stories in this collection and that it read uick The Breakthrough 3 Stars A man sent to assist with a computer learns that science experiences in secluded locations never end wellThe beginning and middle The Tenant of thisne had me hooked but the ending left a lot to be desired This was the Unstoppable (Tracers, one story I would have liked to see in novel form with story at the back end The Wayf the Cross 2 Stars A group traveling discover many truths about themselves while visiting aand creatively reviewed
