I’ve changed this blog’s URL because I’ve decided I don’t like books-and-the-like anymore. And in a couple of days I think I’m gonna change the profile picture to a closer-up photo of some books, just because I’ve taken a closer look and you can’t really tell they’re books. Rant over.
This is a short novella (my copy is 200 pages) about a Londoner who is sent up north to represent the company he works for at the funeral of an elderly woman. He also has to sort out some of her assets in her large, secluded, spooky house. Enter: ghostly figures, creepy noises and general spooky things.
All joking aside, this is a genuinely terrifying book. It has everything you’d expect from a horror story of its kind: tension, weird happenings and of course an ending which leaves you chilled to the bone.
This is a book which I could only read in daylight. That hasn’t happened to me since I read Pet Sematary when I was 13. I give it 4 stars on Goodreads (my account). Would definitely recommend.
