Review:
Excuse my language, but holy shit, this was creepy. I might have to sleep with the light on tonight!

I don't even know where to begin with this book, but it's the best story of a haunted house I've ever read; probably because you can't quite figure out how it's haunted. In only a little over a hundred pages, this place comes to life and bends expectations and the laws of reality, and it's so disturbing and alarming.

The story is written in a really interesting way as well; there are weird things happening quite early on, but you don't know what it means, you just know something is off, and when you reach the end, you can't help but flip back and get goosebumps.

Honestly, this was terrifying. And yet I'm left fascinated. I would definitely recommend it, although maybe read it during the day.
