Harry Price and Sarah have moved on a bit since the last episode mind – a few changes there I didn’t expect at all! But Harry is back to his usual experimental and doubtful self. The story was nicely pace and creepily good with plenty twists and unexpected events taking place so if you are of a nervous disposition, you might not want to read it at night.
The village is brought to life in the most amazing way – details of abandoned houses yes, but it’s more the feel the novel gives you which really excited me. The lights on in the local church, the whistling of the leaves, the unknown…Neil is good at evoking the darkness and confusion of the unknown. How the man sleeps at night I don’t know. I have returned to Imber myself a few times since finishing his book.
I though the whole village was painted with so many shades of dark tones – the blacksmith for one, Hartwell, the mixture of hatred and a need to keep the military enemy close, the villagers unease and distress of their eviction…. Sarah was a very central character to this story too- I enjoyed getting to know more about her, her relationship with Harry and her desire to help these people, reclaim some of their past.
There’s a little bit of literary licence here of course, particularly towards the end, and you’ll be finding out a lot about ghostly visions the art of getting in touch with them too. Creepy and fascinating since it was based on true fact and I felt I’d been to that village, met its people and was desperate to find out its story as much as the author. He does a great job of placing you in that village and summoning the fog and the fear to keep you there. This was one of the most heartbreaking, heartfelt and poignant ‘ghost’ stories I think I’ve ever read.
The Lost Village is a captivating tale. I was curious to learn what the connection between Sarah and the village. And, is Imber really haunted? And, what has the movie theater that is said to be haunted to do with everything? Is there some connection between the movie theater and the village? Sarah and Harry reunite to solve the mystery of Imber. But, their past is between them and the village is not a very peaceful place. This case could be the end of them...
Neil Spring is a very talented writer and I sure hope that he will write at least one more book about Sarah and Harry. Although, to get this one was more than I hoped for and it was very bittersweet to turn the last page. It's an extraordinary tale and I recommend it warmly!
and what a story it was...the best ghost/horror story i have read in ages
its very much on par with the early james herbert books that i read long ago...
no spoilers but its one that will keep you reading until you finish, so much happens that you want to know the whys and hows
