it was amazing

I'm surprised I never came across this book before during my childhood. I had read pretty much every book in the county and school library where I grew up at, but I don't remember reading any books by John Bellairs. After reading The House with a Clock in its Walls yesterday, I wish I had been reading his books a long time ago.

The way the book is written has a very Gothic vibe to it. The descriptions are very detailed and the dialogue is very intelligent. The plot is very original, unlike many modern young adult books that recycles everything. There are many creepy illustrations by Edward Gorey. Additionally, there are 16 movie photos in the paperback I bought at Walmart and I believe these were exclusive to the store.

Overall, The House with a Clock in its Walls is a well-written magical read!
