Reminded me of why started reading Dean Koontz.

I liked the plot of the story, but I didn't feel like enough time was spent on character development.

I've been a fan of Judith McDowell for quite some time now. So far I've read and enjoyed all the books she's published. She has a way with words that's believable and it makes the reader feel like you are there. The Hay Fort is no exception. The main characters, Willie and Butch, remind me of my brother, Gary, and his neighborhood friend, Chris, and the mischief they would get in to as kids. The story has all the scary creatures which make terrifying things happen. It kept me on the edge of my seat. Once I started reading it I didn't put it down. Great job, Judith. Can't wait to read the next one.

Having lived in the Pacific Northwest all my life I had heard the stories going on about the haunted house down in the valley. The stories even included an old witch who lived in the house. Of course I never believed the stories being bantered about by the younger crowd until I went into the house with a relative of mine. That's when I realized that maybe there was some truth in all the stories being spread about.

McDowell was able to keep the dialogue realistic while giving enough family history to make all the stories deserve a closer look.

This book gave me the chills knowing I had actually been one of the younger crowd talking about the house who had been inside the house. And another chill maker? I hate witches!

This book isn't really what I expected. I thought it was about a "haunted house" where I live.... It was a childhood tale. It didn't fit the memories at all.

The language goes from mediocre to juvenile. There is no character development. The parts that are supposed to be tense and frightening are cheap and lousy.

I liked the plot of the story, but I didn't feel like enough time was spent on character development. The characters all feel flat and unremarkable. If it wasn't for the character tags, "he said /she said" you wouldn't be able to tell who was who. They all seem the same. I feel the story would be better off if it were set in the 1970s or 1980s, because the teens just don't seem to act like modern teens do.

I wanted to like this book, but it was just plain painful to get through. I was going to stop reading it halfway through, but thought it might get better (which it did not). Lots of puncuation/spelling errors, and should be edited again. Also, every page seemed to have at least one swear word - everybody swore - the two boys (constantly), their dads (to each other, to the kids, to the police), the teacher (to the police), the police (to the teacher, to each other, to the judge, and even to the priest) - bad, quick ending. I do not recommend - sorry.

I hate rating a book poorly, but not every book can be a 4 or a 5 star. I could get over some of the typos and editing errors, although watching Angles instead of Angels loses some of the power. Truthfully, it seemed like someone had read some Stephen King and was trying to recreate something 'spooky' or 'scary', but it just wasn't working out. Some of the dialog seemed contrived and unrealistic - specially the old woman's stuff. I read it though, because I hate to give up on a book, but before I could get to the end it was missing. That, or the ending was very abrupt.
