The Almshouse is a story about a twelve-year old girl named Julia who gets thrown into the spirit world after dying in a fire. Upon entering, she meets a boy called Lyle, who she quickly becomes friends with. A mystery surfaces when she finds out there's something wrong with Lyle, and Julia tries her best to help him.
Overall, this was an amazing book. The characters were lovable and interesting, and on every page I was eager for more of the story. I like how Julia develops and "grows up," even when dead. There were some grammatical errors that could've been avoided, but other than that I enjoyed the story and its plot twists, mystery, and the suspense at the end.
This book recommended if you just want a short read for the weekend, or just read it for fun. If you like mystery, you'll especially like it. Even if you don't, try it out, it's a great story!
The plot moves rapidly, so watch out. I can't say too much more without spoiling things. Suffice it to say that King has followed the Chekov's gun principle to the letter, scrubbing this novel of anything boring or irrelevant. It's a book you can finish on a weekend, but it stays with you. It's a tale of good and evil, of childhood, and growth, and of sin and redemption. The Almshouse is one of the most unique books I have read in a long time, and I would highly recommend it.
