‘’Drive by the house you’re interested in at night, I say. Watch the windows. See if anybody’s watching for you there. And then drive home with the dome light on, and check that back seat as often as you can. It won’t be often enough.’’ Stephen Graham Jones I will readily admit that one of the th...

I can't say enough good things about this incredible haunted house story!   It was fast paced. It was chilling. It was vividly real. It was atmospheric. It was scary.It inexorably, unrelentingly pulls the reader to its final conclusion and that conclusion is stunning.   This is one of the best haunte...

Will the Rolfe family head back to Brooklyn before it's too late? Chalk another one up to Paperback...

Hands down, the best dream-house turned nightmare chiller ever. A classic.

The thing that I like about this novel is that it is not a hungry house itself but a certain family that goes crazy and freak out with nasty nudges from the monster mansion. How could small things lead us into destruction so easily (unfortunately with the help of an uncanny thing),just when we fe...

Well, even after only a couple of years before reading this the first time, there were some scenes that I was delighted to re-discover! This stands among my top ten "haunted house" stories, easily--among others such as Hill House, The Elementals, and The Shining. The best part for myself in Robert...

Marian is a 70’s housewife and she is tired of city life and coerces her husband, Ben, into checking out a summer rental with a beach that is far from the sweltering heat, stink and noise of the city. He says it sounds to...

Perhaps it's simply because it doesn't hold up to an unfair comparison, but Robert Marasco's Burnt Offerings, though not an awful read by any means, was not everything I imagined it would be. The premise isn't bad, as horror novels go: little urban family rents a beautiful, if sadly dilapidated,...

Rounded up from 4.5* So I read this book in one day. I thought I'd read it over the next few days, along with some other reads, but pretty soon I was at 25% and then 50% and then I was huddling under the blanket last night to keep from waking up Mr. Marsh with my Kindle light and couldn't stop rea...

I discovered Burnt Offerings through a recommendation by Stephen King, who described it as "disturbing tale, and one which comes highly recommended not just to fans of the genre but to the general reader", praising its "near brilliance" , which he considers to be second only to Shirley Jackson's...
