It’s interesting to read the reviews and see what it is people like and dislike about a book. I really thought this book was great aside from some of the misspellings and misused words, which I personally can get over quickly. This book was utterly scary.... to me anyway. The descriptions were just crazy, and I don't mean that in a bad way. Yes some of the story (ie. the birth and I will call it’re-birth' of Mary) were to some other reviewers unbelievable, but this is a horror book and sometimes you have to suspend reality while reading in order to be able to feel and get into a book properly. This author did a great job of making me visualize what was going on and it was pretty graphic and intense.
The book starts out in the present with a pretty graphic scene, then transitions to yesteryear to build the story. I thought the transition in years was pretty smooth. I mean how much smoother can you be by stating the year at the top of the section/part of the book (there were 7 parts) then who each chapter was about within that section and time moved on chronologically. Ie (year 1888– then each chapter within had a name Marguerite, Mary, Eve, etc).
Now to the book conclusion, the ending was sufficient and didn’t leave me feeling like I was lacking something, but I thought the ending was predictable, until there was an Epilogue, it took a turn and I was like ‘Oh I didn’t see that coming’. Based off the epilogue, there could be some sort of sequel, but not an actual sequel, a whole new story. Well done!
I read a lot of books; this one drew me in and sucked my soul into it. I can’t say that about a lot of the books I read. I caught myself sneaking off while at work to read it because, well it sucked me in and I had to know what was going to happen next. I even had one night I couldn’t sleep because I swear I was seeing maggots everywhere and somehow incorporated what I read into some weird vivid dreams. That is what a horror book should do; it had me on edge and wanting more.
If you can suspend reality and like a good visualized horror story, you might like this one. This would make a great graphic and scary horror movie.
I have to say that I've been waiting to read a book like this where the author isn't afraid to put a bit more detail in the deathly scenes. I love a good horror read.
Of course I'm probably a weirdo in a sense of loving this stuff and have yet to find a ghostly read- ... or movie for that matter, that's literally put a scared chill up my spine. Any recommendations I'd gladly love. But, no doubt this author had me captivated and it's a first of her books that I've read, so no doubt I'm highly looking forward to checking out her other work.
This book has multiple POV's and as I've mentioned in other reviews, I'm a bit apprehensive about it in the beginning because a reader can easily get lost and the story can get confusing as if getting whiplash from trying to keep up, but with this book, I was able to smoothly keep up.
It starts out in the present with Rosie and Toby going into the haunted Wetherley House and as things start to happen and things start to unfold, we're taken back in time to the beginning and lead up back to current events. You get a sense of each character as each POV is experiencing gruesome events and their place in it. I also enjoyed the ending, I won't say how as not to spoil anything, but I enjoyed reading this and definitely recommend.
And to the reviewer who insulted the author by calling her a "twelve year old who put a story on the internet".. get a life. If you didn't like the book, didn't quite get it, just state that. Stop being a troll.
