A good book, but the worst ending I have ever read.,
This review is from: The haunting of Toby Jugg (A Black magic story) (Paperback)
I'm a big fan of Dennis Wheatley; the atmosphere in his books are superb, and his characterisation is masterful. Unfortunately, although he sometimes creates amazing plots, many of his books end with an unsatisfying "deus ex machina". This is one of those books. The ending is not only illogical, but impossible, as far as I can tell. Not to mention the other thing that happens, which I can't tell you without spoiling the book.
The rest of the book is fairly exciting and scary. Toby Jugg ("ahaha") is confined to a wheelchair. He is staying in a remote mansion in Wales (DW seems to be very anti-Welsh, by the way) and gets imprisoned. Then he gets visited by demons, falls in love, etc etc.
Not Dennis Wheatley's best book.
