I enjoyed this book. It’s very creepy and the tension slowly rises.

What a creepy little ghost story! Sinking into this slow-burn ghost story felt a lot like Shirley Jackson's amazing novel, The Haunting of Hill House. The writing style felt like Shirley Jackson period, maybe even a bit of We Have Always Lived in the Castle. I just loved it. The characters had a hard time leaping off the page at first, as Koike doesn't take care to really flesh them out. However, as the plot progresses and ups the creep-factor, that tiny failure becomes less noticeable. I think this being a 30 year old novel probably helps it be more readable, as I find modern horror and ghost stories to be choppy and rely too heavily on conversations to reveal plot and character. Koike works on ATMOSPHERE and for that, I shall not complain. Great read. I ripped through it in about a day-and-a-half.

Thank you, Hamilton Public Library, for purchasing this book upon request! It is available as an ebook, as well.
