An excellent variation on the haunting genre, a subtle paranormal thriller, this is a great book for those who enjoy suspense, paranormal thrillers and horror. I enjoyed the book a great deal and highly recommend it.
When he gets to the hotel, he can't stop himself from drinking some of the water called Pluto water. He starts to have visions and headaches that is only relieved by drinking more of the water.
We are now in Stephen King territory, a nice place to be.He finds that there is only one Bradford left there and he is a terrible person.The book is very long but makes a very enjoyable read. It made me want to go and check out the area. I think they still have Pluto water there and the whole area is beautiful.
I really liked the book, the characters are interesting and the story is a mystery with lots and lots of strange things going on. I am going to be reading more of Michael Koryta's books but think they can't be as good as this one.I highly recommend it for anyone who likes something a little different.
Eric used to be a relatively in-demand man in the film industry, having an uncanny knack for choosing the exactly right spots to film in. Now Eric spends his days composing wedding & funeral videos for the wealthy while he wonders exactly what went wrong in his marriage. When Alyssa Bradford offers him a lot of money to do a film on her dying father-in-law, Eric initially assumes that it'll be just another job. He quickly finds himself being drawn into something far more sinister as he attempts to finish the job.
I liked this book as it has all of the stuff I love (old mysteries, supernatural happenings, slow suspsense), but I'll be completely honest with you. I probably won't be reading this again. It's good, but towards the end it just didn't keep me "in" as much as it did at the beginning. Koryta does a nice job of building suspense, but it's the ending that really just killed it for me. It felt a little anti-climactic & rushed, in my opinion. I'm not really sure how it could have ended, but it just felt like it should have been something slightly different.
That being said, I have to say that I liked the characters for the most part & I really liked that the main character of Eric wasn't particularly likeable. I don't mean that in the "I don't want to read about him" sense, but in the "this guy needs help & actually changes during the book" sense.Read more ›
