Editor reviews

Editors Select, October 2017

The sequel to the Edgar Award-winning Greenglass House picks up one year later, and now 13-year-old Milo has a new mystery to solve over winter break. What I love most about this series is the coziness of the house itself: stately and elegant, with hidden reading nooks by the fireplace, frost glistening in the woods outside, and an attic full of old treasures. Unlike so many child characters, Milo has loving and supportive parents to talk to and bring him hot chocolate, so even while he is struggling to puzzle together clues, he is always safe in the embrace of his family. It is possible to listen to this without knowing the first book, but it will reveal a major plot spoiler if you listen out of order. —Sonja, Audible Editor

Summary

Welcome back to the irresistible world of Greenglass House, where 13-year-old Milo is, once again, spending the winter holidays stuck in a house full of strange guests who are not what they seem. There are fresh clues to uncover as friends old and new join in his search for a mysterious map and a famous smuggler's lost haul. This exciting sequel to a beloved book is sure to thrill both fans and newcomers. Like its predecessor, it's a smart, suspenseful tale that offers ghosts, friendships, and a cast of unforgettable characters, all wrapped up in a cozy mystery.

Better Than What I Expected

I got this book on a lark. I started listening and at first I thought it was for a younger age group but I kept on listening. I really got into the characters and the Christmas time of the year. It surprised me what a good book it was. I really liked the story and thought it had a good ending. The narrator did a very good job. The only thing I did not like was the epilog. It entirely changed how I felt when I left the recording. I wish the author well in her quest but I just wanted to stay where the book left me for a while. I didn't care why the author did a couple of things in the book and why. I regard that as private. What I cared about was where the book left me when the book was done. Over all I found it to be a good listen for any age.

Excellent sequel

The first Greenglass House book was so good that we were worried the second one could not match it. Fortunately we were wrong, Ghosts of Greenglass House is just wonderful, a worthy follow up to a book we loved.

Much better than the first book

I still didn't care for the narrator or the main character, but the side characters and their traditions are REALLY interesting! This was a good story and well worth listening to.

Great book for any age

It’s a very interesting book the only part I found a little boring was the part before addy arrived. but the rest of the book made up for that. the entire experience of reading it was amazing! I listened to a bit every night, and every day I couldn’t wait to listen to more of it.

wanted more ghosts

I liked the first book but found this one dull. I was really hoping it would be more about the ghosts and more ghosts.

Couldn’t get past the narration

The story moved too slowly for me to get past the narrator’s odd reading. Perhaps it was his attempt to portray a 13-year-old, but it came off whiny and strained. Listen to the sample before spending your credit. That being said, I think this would be a better read than listen, and the Christmas time setting and cozy feel to the story would make it great to curl up with. However, I couldn’t get through the audiobook and had to turn it off. If you’re interested in the story, try the kindle version.

Great for kids or adults.

This is a great winter read as it takes place over Christmas break. I have loved reading this series even as an adult.
