Book Review of Shadowland

Author: Peter Straub
Genre: Horror
Book Type: Paperback
reviewed Excellent read on + 4 more book reviews
Helpful Score: 1

This is one of the best stories of its type ever written. Ever! It has everything: innocence lost and regained, sort of. Mystery. Terror. Background stories almost better than the main plot. Best-friendship, love, betrayal, loss. Magic, fairy tales come to life, and dead things, too. An ending that breaks your heart, both because of the situation and because the damn book is ending!! I don't want to spoil the story by giving specifics, but if you like stories that stick with you for years after, read this book. IF you like re-reading good books and discovering something new about it each time, read this book. If you like sitting on the edge of your seat in suspense, read it. If you are not one of those people who carry their books around everywhere you go until it is finished, you will become one after starting Shadowland. Order today and enjoy!
