It is a simple story centered around four young women and one of them named Billie suddenly develops the ability become aware either through sight or feel of a ghost. Usually, they are trying to contact her for some reason, which varies. Billie has a boyfriend who is a policeman and he believes that she receives such contact and tries to help her. Her three girlfriends believe her, but lack her psychic ability until finally one unintentionally receives a contact which is dangerous for her.
This book is so simple, that it is not as enjoyable as what one would consider a good ghost story, but it reads quickly and has some entertainment to it. The way the author concludes the story is most startling, and he says he is writing more books, and he has entitled this one Book 1.
It gets better, though. Much better, in fact. I found it to be quite original, actually.
In a group of friends, one of them can see ghosts. Her friends comprise of one who totally believes her and is very interested (perhaps too interested) in her abilities, one who absolutely does not believe, and one who is pretty uninterested in the whole thing.
The friends enter an abandoned house that is due to be demolished, wanting to get some photos for posterity before it's gone for good. The house has a reputation for being haunted though, so there is some debate about whether they should do it. They enter anyway, and make a gruesome discovery - and that's when the really weird supernatural stuff starts happening. Stuff involving demonic sacrifices, pentagrams, and devil worship.
Enter the cop, who's sceptical about all this, but not so much as to be a cliché. Through his scepticism, he manages to keep an open mind, and the story becomes very interesting indeed!
Spookshow is the first in a series (the second instalment being Welcome to the Spookshow), and I liked the way that the second book get foreshadowed at the end of the first. So much so, in fact, that I went and signed up for the author's newsletter, in order to secure my free copy.
Tim McGregor is no Stephen King, but it's a pretty decent story. If you ask me, this author's got promise as a horror writer.
There was a scene towards the end that could have been had me on the edge of my seat, but it was only briefly described as an afterthought. I was quite disappointed.
I wish the author would rewrite the tale, building the characters (make me love them or hate them.....just make me feel something towards them), and then lay it out so that the reader can’t wait to hear what happens to the characters they now feel they know. Give me scary details; make me experience the smells, sounds, sights, and tastes that they experience. (Using a few phrases about getting the chills, getting nauseous, or chills down your spine are nothing new and are as scary as discussing the weather.)
The author had a great idea for a scary book, but fell short of delivering anything but a shell of a concept. I most certainly will not read any more in the series. I’d rather read a fantastic page turner wishing for more than a 9 or 10 book series that I’ll quickly forget.
A group of girls then stumble on a dead body, a relic of old bones really. What the? Who was this guy? How did he get here? And was he murdered? Maybe it was the Murder House?
Ever since then strange paranormal occurrences have been popping up, resulting in the disappearance of one of the girls. Now Billie must use every ounce of her ability to find her before it’s too late.
A murderous ghost story concerning witches and the occult. Chilling from start to finish!
