Review: A House in the Country

A House in the Country
A House in the Country by Matt Shaw

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Aww that ending. I love ghost stories and was really enjoying the book but I wasn't too keen on how it ended. There was potential there for a really good ghost story, lots of haunting and bump in the night stuff and I feel kind of cheated now in a way. Don't get me wrong the ending, although it felt a bit rushed, was still good and brought closure to the story in a very real way, it just wasn't what I was hoping for. I think it kind of ruined the creepy build up and I was dissapointed that it was something totally different than what the story was hinting at all along.
