My first Masterson book. A very good ghost story with a twist. Spooky!!
I liked this book alot! The storyline was easy to read and follow, yet it was just enough 'spooky' to keep me guessing what would happen next.
Excellent story that is very reminiscent of Stephen King's better books.
A husband becomes obssessed with a falling-down ruin of a mansion. At first, his wife believes that this house will help their failing marriage. She soon learns that the house and its ghosts are taking over her husband's very soul.
Scary writing at its best!
I enjoy a good ghost story, and there are so few around. I hoped this would satisfy but I didn't even finish it. It's needlessly gory and filled with unpleasant images (starting right off with the hammer and testicle bit) that don't really seem necessary. Someone said Masterson is as good as the best Stephen King, which to me is not a good thing. I still have bad memories of the "puppy-in-the-refrigerator" episode from "It," which was just for shock value and turned me off King for good. Won't bother with Masterson's books any more, either.
