Publisher's Summary

The chilling story of a woman haunted by music that only she can hear, sung by a choir of children that only she can see....

Critic Reviews

"If ghost stories are your thing, you will absolutely love the latest novella, The Orphan Choir by Sophie Hannah.… This book is part of a new series of special commissions by Hammer (of horror film fame). She says, 'When I was invited to write a novella for the new Hammer imprint, my first thought was, "Ooh, yes, but it must be terrifying.”' Don’t worry. It is." (Red magazine)

Turned out good at the end

As I read the book I wondered where it was going as the plot was very narrow and there where not many characters involved..... Quite a mundane plot .... It is in the last fifth of the book where the story lies and this will have you thinking back through the book and leaves an impression on you..... The plot does build but I felt it took a long time until I didn't want to stop reading because I needed to know what was happening but it got there in the end.

Very satisfying

The first person narration starts with a women tormented by the (regular) noise of neighbours partying and playing loud pop music. She then hears choir boys singing. Is this a new tactic used by her neighbour to annoy her or something else...? I liked the way that the reliability of the narrator is questioned. The slow build-up of neurosis is well presented and the ending was very satisfying. (It doesn't sag in the middle either.)

I listened to this on a long drive (I was the driver) and there was nothing in it to make me jump or affect my driving but I was engrossed.
