Ghost Story by Peter Straub

Review:

Ghost Story - Peter Straub

What was the worst thing you’ve ever done?

– first sentence

This is a terrifically terrifying story. I love the way the tension builds slowly. We know something terrible happened in the past, but we aren’t quite sure what. We also know something even more terrible is coming. The feeling of claustrophobia grows as the story continues and the town is closed off from the outside world. The evil is frightening and stays with you even after you put the book down.

The prologue was a bit confusing, but it made more sense once I got to the end of the book. I actually went back and reread the prologue and understood it much better.
