(I received this book for free as part of Goodreads First Reads giveaways).
(This review may contain spoilers).
This book was quite a short, easy read. I really liked the front cover of it and it was nice that the title of the book was taken from a quote one of the characters said in the book.
I’d imagine it’s quite hard to create a truly atmospheric story with a book of this length, but I felt the author did a really good job of that. There were some really quite creepy moments and although I would have liked to see more of the ghost/s, what I did see was really effective.
I would have liked to see a bit more about the two main characters who went into the house. There were bits and pieces shown about them, but it would have been nice to see a bit more background and the relationship between the two of them.
I did think that this book was really well-written. The house itself was really well-described and the ghostly appearance was suitably creepy. There was at least one thing that I didn’t see an explanation for, but it wasn’t clear if that was just in their imaginations or if it was part of the general haunting.
Although learning things through a diary isn’t a unique plot device, it was still interesting to see the entries and learn what did happen in the house. This was a really easy story to read and although I would have liked to see it expanded a bit more, it was still an entertaining read and I would probably read more books by this author if given the opportunity in the future.
