1. The main character is always broke and can't seem to refuse the haunted house or the job at the haunted house.
2. There's very, very little dialogue between characters and it always seems to be a solo adventure.
3. The character is scared to death but never leaves the house, committed to the task of cleaning it as if that was more important than safety.
4. I happened to find the same writing style over and over again with the same use of words and descriptions. There's not much character development either.
5. The house or mansion or manor is always very well hidden from civilization and very far away from the city, tucked away in a huge forest and is always tangled in vines and weeds.
6. There's always something hiding in the house that won't reveal itselt almost until you reach page 120.
This particular story was pretty good although it was predictable. I knew beforehand that the car wouldn't start and that Guy would end back in Rookward when he got lost in the woods. The ending was nice and the twists as well.
To me, this author has a lot of potential but it is not fully developed because her stories are small, sometimes consisting of five or six characters and they all follow the same pattern. I think she is capable of writing something bigger, less predictable and engaging. I read this book in one day. It was engrossing and easy to read. It makes for a good story when you're bored. The descriptions are creepy and it is an overall good experience. However, I can't seem to read one book after another from this author without rolling my eyes at the similarities between each one. They are the same story told all over again with different broke characters and a long forgotten forest hidden mansion.
Guy goes to refinish the old house owned by his mother. He gets a lot more than an old building! A spectral entity named Amy is searching for her lost love. The twists and turns of this book left me breathless. It is a must read for anyone who lives good,spooky tales.
Guy and his mother are struggling in their home and its hard for Guy to get a job as he accidentally ran over his then pregnant love of his life and the town now despises him because of it. When Guy helps his mother clean out the attic he sees a paper with his mothers name on it, and it turns out to be the deeds to an old home that she completely forgot about. Guy plans to renovate the house on his own in the hopes of selling it for a good price so they can both start over somewhere new. The house has an old legend, that a married man with some kids were being stalked by some woman named Amy who was obsessed with the husband, and Amy murdered everyone one night and her soul never left the house. Only one thing is clear: Amy isnt finished with killing.
Honestly this book was ok. Not my favorite but i dont typically read haunted house novels. Not a lot of scary, just more sprinkled in creepy. Heres hoping the other novels i bought from her are better.
He ran out of water but didn’t bother refilling his jug from the nearby river; he collected rain water instead.
The ghost was annoying. I can’t believe that the cops and Thomas never thought to check the attic for Amy before she killed the family.
Was Guy related to Thomas? They resembled each other.
This story like all other of Coates' novels had me flipping through pages like mad. The main character was very well fleshed out. I was right along his emotional journey with him. The back story of the house was creepy as hell and I loved every second of it. I felt like that kid under the blankets reading scary stories all over again.
