Eh. This was slow. It had a ridiculous climax that made little sense. No real scares. In all honesty, just a bad retread of everything else that he's written.

One of my favorite John Saul books.The story of a boy who hears voices (Nick) who befriends a girl with a special talent (Sarah) for painting things she couldn't posssibly have seen yet. Add Sarah being forced to go to a horrible foster home, an art teacher who's called a witch by the religious zealots of the town and a house that's seen far, far too much horror.... and you've got House of Reckoning.

I loved the book and could not put it down but I felt like they tried to wrap it up too quickly and I wasn't big on the end. But definately worth the read. Most of the book was riviting.

Just an okay book, John Saul seems to continue the same kind of story book after book as if he "really" loves recycling.

A very engaging and intriguing story about two very courageous young people who rise above the bullying of other high school aged young people. A surprising but satisfying ending.

Having read loads of Saul's novels House of Reckoning wasn't exactly something new for me. The scheme is the usual old one. Troubled teenagers, rather picked on by their classmates find each other and conquer their troubles. The re-occurring theme in Saul's books tends to get me bored although I usually enjoy his writings. The3 characters seems to be very shallow with not enough development to make the reader really care.

Compared to other novels like f. e. Suffer the Children I would consider it a failure. Probably not for the reader new to Saul but for those who know his writings well.
