    When the beautiful and precocious sisters Sally and Gillian Owens are orphaned at a young age, they are taken to a small Massachusetts town to be raised by their eccentric aunts, who happen to dwell in the darkest, eeriest house in town. As they become more aware of their aunts' mysterious and sometimes frightening powers - and as their own powers begin to surface - the sisters grow determined to escape their strange upbringing by blending into "normal" society.

    Story

    I admit that I got this book because of the movie. I figured the book is almost always better than the movie and that there are multiple places in the movie where plot points or details were truthfully unnecessary for the movie but hinted at greater development in the book.

    So with high hopes I began this book. However, after 2.5 hours it was still exposition and no action! After nearly 3 hours (1/3 of the book) I had had enough.

    I have read more than my fair share of show paced books but this one is the first one that I just gave up on. None of the characters are engaging enough to keep the reader's interest and reward his/her patience.

    In looking at other people's review's I'd like to believe that at some point something interesting happens, I however just don't care enough to suffer through anymore whiny grass is always greener characterization.
