I read this book a few years back but it's still one of my favorites. From the very first page to the last page, this book had me entirely hooked. I couldn't put it down and ended up reading it in one day. A hauntingly scary book that will keep you on the edge of your seat.

I watched the movie (AN AMERICAN HAUNTING I believe is the title) before reading the book. I read a few chapters before growing bored of the narration and skipped ahead to where the story picks up. Even then after just a few pages the narration got to be boring. I don't think I'd try another book by this author anytime soon.

I enjoyed the book for it's detailed look at life in the late 1800s and as a great piece of fiction. In my opinion, this was not a "horror" book. I did not find it scary at all.
