Summary

Graham Masterton is one of the horror genre's most celebrated and popular writers. Now, after eight years of writing crime fiction, he is back with this terrifying novel about a haunted house on Dartmoor.

All Hallows Hall, a rambling Tudor mansion on the edge of the bleak, misty moor is not a place many would choose to live. Yet the former governor of Dartmoor Prison did just that. Now he's dead, and his estranged family is set to inherit his estate.

But when the dead man's family come to stay, the atmosphere of the moors seems to drift into every room. Floorboards creak, secret passageways echo and wind whistles in the house's famous priest hole. And then, on the morning the family decides to leave All Hallows Hall once and for all, their young son, Timmy, goes missing....

Not GM's best

The story was predictable in quite a few of the parts. Some parts struck me as a little silly. The 5 year old boy spoke like someone much older. The narration was for the most part was rubbish. The narrator spoke too fast which meant there was no reaction to certain events and on trying to sound like a man it just sounded like she had a sore throat. I ended up turning off the Audio before I even got half way and read the book on my kindle instead.

a serious case of verbal diorhea

I really have to admire the narrator of this excuse for a novel. She stuck with it and that’s something to admire because the book has absolutely nothing to recommend it. Loads of conversation between family members that don’t like each other, a house full of whispers, an ambition to have it made in to a movie (god help us all if the movie industry obliges) and not all that much else. Don’t waste your time on this book, it’s not worth it.

I dod not like this book.

It was a huge struggle to finish this, on fact I accidentally left it playing I think and it finished without me. ao I guess I couldn't even get there bc I'm not going back to listen. the performance was good. but the actual story lacked slot for me. There were so many characters and I don't feel like any of them were developed then there were so many additional characters added in. plus I thought this was to be a scary story and it definitely wasn't. others may like it, but not I.

Meh- very flat

There was no tension in this book. All the characters were oddly very excepting of the supernatural things happening in the house and didn’t seem panicked to leave. Nothing that happened seemed scary at all and it should have been. I listened to this in the dark while home alone and I actually fell asleep.

Nice horror novel for a rainy day

Great unsuspecting horror novel . Little bit of ghost, little bit of gothic, and a bit of folk .

Supernatural story, yes. Ghost story, no.

Was looking for a ghost story, but this is not one, so I was disappointed that it was under the ghost stories section on audible. I get the idea of twists, but just label the book as a supernatural tale so readers can locate the kind of story they are looking for.
That being said, the story as a supernatural story was interesting and original. Could have used some more likable characters though and perhaps characters that were a little more concerned by the situation. However, its worth a read if you are wanting something original.

I would pass on this

no sympathetic characters, gratuitous grosse sections, unconvincing ending, weird but not weird enough to enjoy
