My husband recently read Mitchell's Cloud Atlas and loved it. Then we watched the movie and with his help I was able to follow the imaginative story.
So when I saw a new book by Mitchell being offered on NetGalley, I requested it.
Slade House is a perfect Halloween ghost story. There's a good plot, interesting characters, remarkable set-up that only needs the spirit of one human every nine years.
Not a typical genre for me but I thoroughly enjoyed it. And I'm glad I got to read it just before Halloween.
