Read full description of the books:
I didn't really like this book at all. It was very slow moving and nothing exciting happened. You kept waiting and waiting for something to knock you off your feet, but nothing even remotely intense happened. When I got this book I was very excited to read it because the description made it seem so scary and mysterious. Then, when I read it I was thoroughly bored and I just wanted to put it down and read a new book. It was also a little confusing. One of the reasons it was so confusing was because it took place in an older England or Scotland. They used a lot of terms more familiar to those languages so I always had to use the context clues so I could figure out what was going on. Another reason it was confusing was because they say that the house switches time periods frequently. I don’t understand this because the characters weren’t confused or surprised by this in the least. They actually seemed to enjoy it. Something else that would scare me and freak me out quite a bit was that boy in the book met a ghost who lived in his room and had been watching him for a while. This only slightly fazed him and that was only because a girl had seen him changing. If this was happening to me that part wouldn’t even freak me out in proportion to all the other things going on! These are just a few reasons that I didn’t enjoy this book.
I didn’t find that I could relate to any of these characters. I don’t know why this is. There were two boys in it around my age and they only played games that small children would play. They played with a remote controlled toy truck! I haven’t played with one of those since I went to daycare! The only slightly fun game they played was pool. I still can’t relate to them on this because I hate pool! They called it something different so I didn’t know they were playing pool until they went into a description of the game. I’m still not positive that’s the game they were playing. There were only two things that I could relate to any of these people on. One of those things is when the Ewan, the main character, went on a bike ride to church. I can slightly relate to this because in the summer my mom forces me to bike everywhere because it’s so nice out. The other thing is when he began to walk home from his friend’s house in the rain because his mom was not home yet. I have actually been the almost exact situation. My mother was out of town for the weekend so I got bored and went to my friend’s house. It was pouring rain but I had to get home right then and my friend’s mom wasn’t home! So I walked all the way home and got soaking wet. This is why I don’t feel I relate to any of these characters.
I personally don't suggest that anyone should read this book, but that is just my personal opinion.
