Paul Theroux - The Black House

24. The Black House by Paul Theroux (1974)
Length: 256 pages
Genre: Horror
Started: 13 April 2011
Finished: 17 April 2011
Where did it come from? From Paperback Swap
How long has it been on my TBR pile? Since 24 April 2009
Why do I have it? I like horror and Paul Theroux is a new author for me.

When Alfred and Emma Munday return from Africa they buy a house in the Dorset countryside. Their marriage is slowly disintergrating and when ghostly occurances start happening to them they don't tell each other about them. This book had great promise but didn't fulfill in my opinion. The plot was great but had a lot of sections that went nowhere. I give this book a B!

B! - (80-88%)

Till we Meet Again, Glow Brightly as Moonlight

Hello and welcome to my blog. I'm a newbie as far as book blogging goes, having been blogging at my daughter's blog for only about two and a half years. Now it's time for me to get my feet wet on my own. Please be gentle with this blogger. Love to hear from you all. Have a great day! :)
