A small boy huddled in the dark. His mother had promised she would never leave him...not in this awful house...not in this terrible town. But she was dead. Gone. And he was alone. Trapped. With no one to answere his desperate call or hear his final agonized cry... and now...
Would you try another book written by Joanne Fluke or narrated by Eliza Foss?
Want to read all of them
What was most disappointing about Joanne Fluke’s story?
Don't do supernatural and this wasn't promoted as a ghost story
Would you be willing to try another one of Eliza Foss’s performances?
You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?
Good quality a pity, didn't like the content
If you could sum up The Other Child in three words, what would they be?
Spooky, creepy, outstanding!
What did you like best about this story?
I love ghost stories and haunted houses, so this was right up my alley. Creepy kid possessed by creepy ghost kid, with a mom possessed by creepy ghost mom? You bet!! Storyline is realistic and believable, at least as ghost stories go, so it's easy to lose yourself in this book. Just enough spook and creep to make it fun, but not give you nightmares. If you like a good ghost story with a bit of a spooky feeling to it, this one's for you too!
Any additional comments?
Only gripe I had was the narration of the children. I felt the childishness was overdone to the point of being a bit distracting - I don't expect 10-year-olds to sound like adults, but they shouldn't sound like petulant 4-year-olds either. Otherwise, it was very well done.
