This is a classic tale of a haunted house and a young boy who can see and hear ghosts. The book is aimed at a younger audience but the characters were quite well developed and it was an enjoyable and quick read. The book is quite scary but I don’t think it is too frightening for the younger reader (especially if it didn’t scare me!). Each chapter ends on a bit of a cliff-hanger so it is near impossible to put the book down and I managed to finish the book in a couple of days.
Sadly, though, I think the last couple of pages really let the book down. It wasn’t a very long book so I feel the author could possibly have spent a couple of more pages to finish the book off properly. As it was, the ending was just too neat and convenient and it was quite a contrast to the rest of the book which was actually quite well written. I give it four out of five stars for this reason.
