it was amazing

I was so caught up in the Amber House I had a hard time retrieving myself when I finished reading it. Now I feel like I should demand a follow up book from the epilogue. :-)

I got this ARC from and was finally able to devote a day to read it. You know how they say people who don't read have only one life, but people who read have tons of lives? This book makes me feel like I've lived another life. The writing is beautiful, perfectly descriptive, and hauntingly accurate. I totally got that a 16 year old was the main character. I was taken back to myself as a 16 year old and stayed there the entire novel. And Sam is such a typical upbeat 5 year old, irrepressible and enthusiastic. I fell in love with him.

The theme of the novel, that a house can hold echoes of the past, is unique, not something I remember reading before.

I will recommend this book to students who enjoy paranormal books and books about family dynamics. Oh, and anyone who has no idea what they want to read.
