داستان اولی نسبتا جالب بود. دومی ایده‌ی تکراری‌ای داشت. سومی هم شاید بچه‌ها رو واقعا بترسونه.

This was the second story of the short story bingo board.
In my last review I stated that i wanted to read the book because
Anthony Horowitz is a brilliant author.

story because I have never read anything like it so there was lots of
I don't like how the author makes the protagonist unsure of himself constantly,"Maybe thats why I got up," And a few lines later,"I don't know why I tiptoed but I did," Because it sends a wrong ima

Wasnt too scary. The horror contained was more just a slight hatred between two people, then one person got caught up in the middle, making it complicated.

I LOVED this book. It was an amazing book written by Anthony Horowitz. I would be pleased if Anthony Horowitz made another book similar to this one.
My favourite character was Uncle Nigel.

This book is a four star purely for the addition at the back of the 'shortest horror story ever written'. Genuinely spooky. Well done Horowitz!
