Briefly:

One of literature's most gripping ghost stories depicts the sinister transformation of 2 innocent children into flagrant liars and hypocrites. Elegantly told tale of unspoken horror and psychological terror creates what few stories in literature have been able to do a complete feeling of dread and uncertainty.

Public domain.
God that was a boring book. No uncertainty. No dread. Just somnolence.
