I've already been told that I'm being tough on this book but I did like it - as you can tell by the three stars (identified as "liked it" by the tool tip).

Gnarled Hollow is a pretty good haunted house story. It's similar to Shirley Jackson's The Haunting of Hill House, which isn't a bad thing at all. I loved that book. And I enjoyed this one. I think I was expecting more of a thriller. Which is clearly my fault since it's a paranormal novel.

I might have really liked it (worthy of 4 Goodreads stars) had Jim (and Chris to a lesser degree) not been so over-the-top in their douchiness. But that was incredibly off putting for me.

I certainly would read more from Ms. Greene. I truly liked the story and ghosts and some of the concepts she used.
