Trippy haunted house story...Of course I liked it! You don't have to read the footnotes to enjoy the book, but they definitely add to the story.

This is my favorite haunted house book. It's written by one of the masters of horror and has plenty of scare factor and suspense. It's probably my most re-read book.

Still, nice sleeve cover, also.

I think, I grabbed this book from a book thrift years ago because I found the blurb on the back interesting.

I‘m sure it took me too long to pick it up since then . I‘m pretty sure that my bookish interests have shifted in the meantime. 🤷🏽‍♀️ Sorry, not sorry.

I like the hard book cover. 😍 But I dislike the book. I scarcely made 100 pages and since I began reading, I kept asking myself if there finally will be something happening. It‘s just boring story telling for me. 🙄 (Insofar as I want to grant the book something like a plot, a story.)

I didn‘t like how disrespectful the men talked about Caroline, either, and found myself less and less interested in the characters and the plot.

So: Time to bail.

“A clever boy like you should know better" [...].
I had to listen to such remarks from adults all the time when I was a child. [...] They put me in a helpless, silent rage every time, because on the one hand I was desperate to live up to my reputation of being a clever boy, on the other hand it seemed very unfair to me that this intelligence I had never asked for was suddenly being used to reprimand me.” (page 10)

⬆️⬆️⬆️ I so much feel him.

I really liked this creepy little book! Horrible people doing stupid stuff in a haunted mansion, but with creative storytelling and poetic language. Even for the really gross parts. 😖

⭐️⭐️⭐️1/2

RaeLovesToRead I want to read this, but I don't like the creepy cover 😅😅 Think I might get it on Kindle. I usually hate any kind of body horror, but as long as there aren't pictures... haha 6d
Suetara I absolutely bought this one for the cover. 😁 6d
janeycanuck I need to add this to my “Never Read” list on Goodreads right away. 5d

It doesn't condescend by spoon-feeding Japanese folklore, and it waltzes between whimsy and tension; overall, this is a simple and eerie ghost story.

… Who else is beyond excited?!😱🖤

Bookzombie I‘m excited, but not really feeling sitting in a theater with people. Wish it was available to stream. I would totally drop the money for it. 🙂 7d
BeeMagical @Bookzombie Same😂 I have no intentions of sitting in a theatre - home release is good enough for me! 7d
