Pros: The basic premise that The Spook House referenced could potentially happen in the future, may have already happened in the past, or could even be happening now. That alone creates a layer of horror. The majority of the characters were believable and from descriptions of their pasts were responsive in a way I would have expected. Time flowed well for the most part, and the author explained time shifts as he made them. I thoroughly enjoyed the visuals created while the characters were inside The Spook House - kept me reading 'just one more page.'
Cons: A run-through by a final editor would be helpful in tightening up the errors in writing that are evident throughout. I also found the main character slightly two-dimensional and not quite believable as a 16-, 17- or 18-year-old male. Having said that, I've never been a teenage male, so take that for what you will. There are also a couple of instances that are repeated more often than necessary in my view.
As this was gifted to me with a request for an honest review, that's what it will get. Overall, I believe it has a good running start at being a very good story with a bit more review and editing.
Why was it so bad? Nothing was believable. The military scenes stretched credulity to the point of breaking; the horror scenes did as well, even though horror (or at least supposed supernatural horror) is supposed to be beyond belief, and finally, the supernatural/metaphysical encounters did as well.
Oh, and of course there were the typical mis-spellings, and grammatical errors (your/you're, they're/their/there, etc...) but I've come to expect those at this point, and they don't bother me all that much anymore.
Happy to recommend for both a thought-provoking and entertaining read.
This is a really creative & interesting story that works well, and is the kind of reading I equate to great junk food, minus the Kcal intake: fun, sinfully good, and requires no heavy lifting to be thoroughly enjoyed. It had it's tense, nail chewing moments, but it was pretty funny too, which is an unexpected bonus. The narrative of the main character is refreshing and natural - the kind of dialogue you might expect to hear in your own head, if you were listening for it.
I also chuckled at the pun play on words of "spook" - being either something supernatural & frightening, or an old-time name for CIA secret agent operatives (cute!) although I'm not entirely sure that was intentional (if it was, genius! If no, then fortuitous!).
It could use a smidge of editting if it ever goes to print, but it's hardly enough to complain about. I both liked & enjoyed it. Check it out, it think you will too.

This is a very good story. An interesting twist on the basic story. I found it hard to put down until I was completely finished. I hope there is a follow-on book.Published on April 23, 2014 by Marcus S. Kinton
