Length: 256 pages
Genre: Horror
Started: 13 April 2011
Finished: 17 April 2011
Where did it come from? From Paperback Swap
How long has it been on my TBR pile? Since 24 April 2009
Why do I have it? I like horror and Paul Theroux is a new author for me.


When Alfred and Emma Munday return from Africa they buy a house in the Dorset countryside. Their marriage is slowly disintergrating and when ghostly occurances start happening to them they don’t tell each other about them. This book had great promise but didn’t fulfill in my opinion. The plot was great but had a lot of sections that went nowhere. I give this book a B!


B! – (80-88%)
