I read this in a single day while sick since I couldn't bring myself to read anything else.

I found it predictable and it made me feel like I had read this book before but written better and for the life of me I cannot remember the 'better' version.

I'm not feeling well so it may color my opinion of the book slightly but I don't really think so. Cliches abound and the characters are not overly interesting with the exception of Ralph and the Knox cousins.

It had smatterings of The Beast House but

This reads like someone's first book attempt. The wording was cliche'-ish the story predictable and you don't get the chance to know the characters. Oddly I didn't seem to mind. I wasn't expecting much therefore it wasn't able to let me down. It also read quickly so I wasn't left feeling like it was dragging on. I wouldn't recommend it to a book fiend but I'd feel terrible just dissing it. It was... okay

I liked this more than I thought I would. parts of it were very repetitive, it would say something on one page, like how a character was feeling, and then use practically the same wording the next page to sort of reaffirm those feelings. Parts were tad predictable, but overall I thought it was an interesting story, and I did start to feel for 1 or 2 of the characters.

Another great ghost story from Blaine, this book is definitely worth the read. Not as scary as Stephen King, yet it will still give you goose bumps!

Overall, a really good book. I wasn't crazy about the ending, but it really built suspense very effectively with likable characters and a creepy atmosphere.
