Publisher's Summary

Aiken makes use of the hallmark of Gothic fiction—the haunted house—in this story of three authors whose lives become inextricably tied to Lamb House, a Georgian mansion situated in the town of East Sussex, England: Toby Thomas, who lived there in the 18th century; followed by Henry James, who discovered Toby’s mysterious diary a century later; and ending with E.F. Benson, who struggled to put the agitated ghosts of Toby and Henry James to rest.

Wanted to like it

Was The Haunting of Lamb House worth the listening time?

It's very rare that I give up on a book, whether I'm reading it or listening to it, but I just couldn't make it past the first third of this story. The narrator was fine, but the story just never grabbed me and the overall experience was one I found tedious. In the end, I had too many other books waiting to be listened to for me to spend any more time on this one.
