Another example is when the lady was going to enter the house, she felt a sudden shudder ' I felt somethig else and it made me hesitate before ringing the bell.' The writer here is not exactly telling or explaining to the reader what the feeling was and how it made the lady feel. In a sense the writer is playing mind games with the reader. The story of 'The Red Room' is a much more classical type ghost story. The writer takes a ghostly type approach to the story. The story was written in 1986. The story has quite a number of parts where it is all about tension. This has quite an effect on the reader.

The story is also quite mysterious to but the writer does not leave you out with information. The story does not exactly feature a ghost but yet is more of a ghostly type story than the story that features a ghost (Farthing House). Both stories have taken place in a room. One room is haunted but the other is not. In both stories the room plays quite a role. The history of the rooms in the both stories is also important. The author of 'Farthing House' takes a modern approach and the author of the 'The Red Room', H G Wells, takes a ghostly type approach to the The story of 'The Red Room' is a much more classical type ghost story.

The story does not have a sighting of a ghost but has quite a lot of tension. Some parts in the story where there is a lot of tension is when the first candle in the room goes out ' it was after midnight the candle in the alcove went out.'
