A Stir of Echoes
A Stir of Echoes | Richard Matheson
16 posts | 22 read | 28 to read
Tom Wallace lived an ordinary life, until a chance event awakened psychic abilities he never knew he possessed. Now he's hearing the private thoughts of the people around him-and learning shocking secrets he never wanted to know. But as Tom's existence becomes a waking nightmare, even greater jolts are in store as he becomes the unwilling recipient of a compelling message from beyond the grave! This eerie ghost story, by award-winning author of Hell House and I Am Legend, inspired the acclaimed 1999 film starring Kevin Bacon.

Nice and spooky, quick listen, but a little dated. Reading it makes me want to watch the movie again.

This was really good. A man at a neighborhood dinner gets put under hypnosis only to find out later his mind has been opened to telepathy, psychometry, and a couple of other things. There was such suspense and thrill in here. Ashley, this will be going back to you either tomorrow or Monday. And thanks @MaleficentBookDragon @BookwormAHN @JackOBotts for a great round of LMPBC.

LeahBergen I haven‘t read this but I remember I found the movie quite scary! 3mo
Reggie @Leahbergen I think you‘d like it. I haven‘t seen the movie but there was stuff I didn‘t see coming at all and I gasped here and there. It has no gore but it does some great stuff. 3mo
BookwormAHN I'm glad you enjoyed it 👻 3mo
Reggie @BookwormAHN Ashley, remember when that guy said he‘d send your book back to you because he finished early in the month and was quite in fact proud of himself. Yeah, well, he‘s trash, and barely put in the post today. Hopefully you get it Monday. Happy Halloween! 🎃 3mo
BookwormAHN No problem, thanks. Happy Halloween 🎃 3mo

The movie adaptation of this with Kevin Bacon is really good. The book was good too. I think this is one of the rare times when I like the movie as much as the book.

I really enjoyed this book by Matheson. It was a quick book, and it kept me wanting to read more. It was interesting to read this and compare it to the movie starring Kevin Bacon. I have always liked the movie. They kept some things the same, but the two are pretty different. I think it is because the book was written in the late 50s, and the movie was made to reflect its time period.

Listened to this yesterday. A quick listen and horrible story 😫. It was the same for What Dreams May Come. It's a rarity when two of the movies dedicated to your books are better....far far better , than your books

CindyMyLifeIsLit Have you seen the movie? 5y
JoeStalksBeck @CindyMyLifeIsLit yeah. I liked it better 5y
CindyMyLifeIsLit I love the movie! One of my favorite horror thrillers. 5y

Still sitting unstirred in my Kindle app. Hope to change that soon. Matheson is a master at #supernaturalmysteries so I'm certain this is going to be a treat.

rohit-sawant @LeahBergen That's good to know! I've held off watching it. Avoiding adaptations when not familiar with the book is probably the only area in my life where I can exercise such rigid self-control. You wouldn't believe when I finally saw the LOTR trilogy. 😳 5y

I saw this book classified as "horror". It definitely wasn't that but still it was pretty interesting. Not what I expected at all.

Why have I never heard of Richard Matheson? Now I'll have to read all HIS books. I think at this point I'll never get through my TBR pile. So many books. SO MANY!
