Excellent book. I have to admit to being surprised at how closely the film seemed to follow the book although I think the film divided the terrors among all the characters rather than just the one. In tone the book reminds me a bit of Affinity except that here the ghostly terror of the house is presented as really happening. I enjoyed how Jackson bends the time so that terrifying events seem to take forever for some and are just moments for others.
