    Story
    (280)

    Only Thomas Ward is left. He's the last hope; the last apprentice. Can Thomas succeed? Will he learn the difference between a benign witch and a malevolent one? Does the Spook's warning against girls with pointy shoes include Alice? And what will happen if Thomas accidentally frees Mother Malkin, the most evil witch in the county?

    Mark says: "Loved it!"
    "Mediocre"
    Overall

    The actor reading the book is great; his character voices are terrific and you can identify which character is speaking just by his voice.
    I wish the book itself were as enthralling. The plot turns are obvious and you can see them coming a mile away. The style is an odd mix of British and American. In the midst of dialogue that sounds almost Dickensian, a character might exclaim "Fat chance!" This odd juxtaposition of styles took me right out of the narrative.

  • The Haunting of Hill House

    Story
    (89)

    Four seekers have come to the ugly, abandoned old mansion: Dr. Montague, an occult scholar looking for solid evidence of the psychic phenomenon called haunting; Theodora, his lovely and lighthearted assistant; Eleanor, the lonely, homeless girl well acquainted with poltergeists; and Luke, the adventurous future heir of Hill House.

    Carl Cravens says: "Different, but good."
    "Genius"
    Overall

    One of the best haunted house novels ever. Shirley Jackson's rich, seductive prose creates vivid characters who live and breathe, and before you know it, you are immersed in their world. The horror is subtle and insidious: it sneaks up and catches you before you know it. The ghosts are never seen: they are heard and felt and sensed, but the genius of Ms. Jackson's writing lays not in what is said but what is left unsaid.
