I'm also a fan of prison dramas, and loved both "Oz" and "Prison Break" when they were on the air, and think it's very cool that this story provides a supernatural exploration on this type of story with some elements of a Haunted House story thrown in. "Blackstone" makes for an excellent read, and should definitely be high on your list if you ever wanted to see a mashup of "The Shawshank Redemption" with "The Amityville Horror".
I loved the opening-how Blackstone was described like a medieval castle-that image made me get in gear towards castles being haunted. A.k.a. Expect the prison to be haunted too. I expected suspense and horror, and definitely got it. The author was great with dialogue; the conversations and body language was entertaining and it was pretty realistic for a setting like this. The questions, paranoia, arguments, accusations, shock value helped provide knowing when the characters' minds started playing tricks on them.
I feared for everyone's safety, and I enjoyed how the twists revealed themselves at the end. I also enjoyed the group dynamic. Everyone was pretty much strangers, except Sully and Janet (fraternity twins who hadn't seen each other in a long time).
It was cool the way everyone was skeptical at first but finally started to realize ghosts were real (that the town rumor surrounding Blackstone wasn't just a myth). The spirits were relentless in messing with the humans.Read more ›
