Top Customer Reviews
As an author myself, I loved that the main character was a writer. I enjoyed the details about movie deals and agents. The descriptions were wonderful - scary houses and foggy nights - but sometimes things were a bit overwritten. The minions and witches weren't terribly scary and the period scenes, based on the Salem witch trials, were sometimes a bit long.
However, there were scenes that were so unique and well written, I'll never forget them. One in particular, where the family's front yard is cursed by a coven and seems to 'die' overnight, was especially memorable.
Although this book was not quite up to the hype in my opinion, Mr. Barker does show much promise!
I recommend Mr. Barker go back to the drawing board. Especially he needs to learn much more about development. Mr. King's work has much to teach him. Also, I recommend he get hold of Daphne du Maurier's book Rebecca, and tear it apart. She is superb at plot development, so much so that she comes perilously close to overdoing it sometimes.
Sorry, I don't wish to be hurtful, but truth is truth. I wish Mr. Barker every success. It's not easy, I know.
