Review For The Ghost Box

Review For The Ghost Box

9781842999875Received this book from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

First things first. I have deducted one star for the cover. I love covers, and I love looking at them, but I am sad that publishers or authors don’t care to check if a cover has been used already. This cover, has been used so many times, I am sick of it.

Now on to the book itself. This is not only a ghost story, it is also a story about divorced parents, getting used to your new mom or dad and to your new siblings. And while I was a bit disappointed at first, I started to like that part too. I was just hoping for Sarah and Matt to get along and be more like sister/brother than cat and dog.

The ghost story was well written, and scary/creepy at times. I really got some goosebumps throughout the book. The boy was seriously creeping me out, the way he popped up, his violence and more. Unlike some books where we have a friendly ghost, this one was more evil, but we soon find out why he is like that. Really the whole background story behind the ghost was really great and made the story more interesting.

The ending was a bit soon, but I think it fitted the story just right.

Well I would really recommend this book to everyone. It is a really fun, short read, but believe me you will be entertained. 🙂
