A Victorian ghost story by Oscar Wilde 4.
5 stars Wilde deftly combines an occasionally grisly haunting, old fashioned sentiment, a small droplet of romance, and a large helping of dry wit in this 1887 novella about a rather brash American family that buys a haunted mansion in Victorian England This story makes fun of some British and American stereotypes of the day, but is oddly touching at the same time.
