Published by Thriftbooks. com User, 10 years ago. I don't typically read this type of book - I tend to stay more with the classics, but wanted a change of pace. I definitely got it with this book. I don't really know how to classify this book, as in my opinion it's not really horror or a ghost story - but it's definitely on the darker side. I was immediately hooked. The author draws you in and makes you feel exactly what the characters are feeling

This is a well-written, intriguing ghost story in which a writer has to confront the demons of his past only to find out how intrusive they really are in his present. This is a tautly written, descriptive story with a well-developed protagonist, and a plot that moves the reader easily along to its shocking finale.

Jack Stone is a man in his early thirties. He is a successful writer living in London, England. He is in love with his beautiful girlfriend, Gail. All seems to be right with his world. Still, Jack always seems to be battling some inner demons. He grew up in the English countryside near the small town of Beckford and has not been back home, since he ran away at the age of eighteen, fleeing an abusive father and an unhappy childhood. When his aunt notifies him that his father has died, Jack goes home, the prodigal son returning to pay his final respects.

When he returns to his childhood home, he finds that all is not as it should be. There are supernatural manifestations. Moreover, the town bully who tormented Jack during his childhood is looking to pick up where he left off, only he has a new partner in crime. Jack confronts the real and the spectral terrors that await him, in an effort to find healing, only to find that some things are just not what they seem.

Those who enjoy ghost stories will find much to like about the book. While the ending came as a total surprise, the social implications of the unexpected twist to the tale are shocking, to say the least. While this book is an intriguing one, overall, the ending was not of the same quality as the rest of the book. Still, those who like ghost stories will definitely derive some enjoyment from reading this book.

It was an absolutely fabulous book! Sorrow to redemption. Love the main character. It made me cry. It was beautiful and spiritual and you'll have to read it to get why I said that. No spoilers here!

I have mainly enjoyed this ghost thriller like story for the writing. The author does a great job of breathing life into his characters, using their background as constant filler in his chapters, and he writes with natural ease making the reader feels as if he was roaming through their head. I have thoroughly enjoyed the book related aspect of this tale, the main hero is also a writer and Mark Morris does a great job shining some light on this mysterious profession.

When Jack Stone finds out that his father has passed away, he feels a rush of relief and a sense of dread at the thought of going back to his childhood birthplace for the funeral. The scabs his memories left on his soul of neglect and child abuse have made him weak with fear but relentlessly he felt that going back would be healing. With the support and a gentle push from his girlfriend Gail, he ventures out to the country side, four hours away from London to burry the past behind once and for all. Little did he know, but his father has his own secrets and the deed of finding them would be forever changing on Jack. The visit back would have been positive if it wasn't for dark shapes creeping around the woods and strange encounters with ghost like apparitions that resemble his father. Worse yet, the local bully who had it for Jack is still heated and ready to strike, using whatever means necessary to wreck havoc on Jacks life and sanity.

I loved the buildup, the creepiness of the house and reading about Jack's time there but I also felt all his work was not getting to a high enough climax. The ending was interesting but I felt a bit angry at how it turned out. The fantasy aspect seemed to have swept my off my feet and delivered me in from of an answer that I simply had to take.

For those who enjoy subtlety in action but like imaginative and descriptive writing, this is not a ride of their lives but will be a pleasant experience never the less.

I liked "Toady", so I was looking forward to reading this book, but I was severely disappointed. This is not a horror novel, nor is it scary, or even exciting, or interesting, or, let's say it outright, worth reading. First of all, it trudges along at very low speed. The prose is simple, to put it nicely. The main character (who I hope is not the author's alter ego) comes across as a very boring, naive guy who himself is the center of his world, seeing as he is this tremendously great horror writer whose books deal with fascinating topics like two clowns, one good, one evil, battling over the laughter of the world. Yeah, right. The author, who for some reason seems to be very much in love with his creation, goes out of his way to supply us with meaningless detail about his darling, such as the fact that Jack once thought of taking up Kung Fu (but didn't think he'd have the time), what kind of dishes he orders at restaurants (mushrooms in garlic & tomato sauce for starters, followed by chicken in cream and herbs with tagliatelle), and what movies he's seen (all kinds of horror movies, which makes him reluctant to go up to check his attic), among 2,795 other equally exciting things. The thing most sure to kill off any interest in this man is that he's such a sorry wuss, though. As for the story, it sadly lacks substance; nothing really happens, the ghost just wanders around a bit as pointlessly as he is uneffective, the bad guys lack any motivation (""Why are they doing this?" Jack shouted, his voice ragged. "Because they're ignorant", answered Gail.' Oo-kay, if you say so...), and Morris's attempts at psychological depth only manage to shed an interesting light on his own character. The highlight of the novel, if one can call it that, must be the scene where the protagonist almost gets raped by a 16 year old girl (did I already mention he's a wuss?), who then proceeds to threaten him with a paternity charge; I guess DNA testing has yet to come to Morris-Land. T! he unintentional comedy is priceless. Of course, as can be expected, the action takes an "unexpected" "twist" towards the end, which comes across as something the author thought up at the spur of the moment, which would also explain his shying away from the implications his little trick has on the relationship between the two characters involved, which, if thought through, could have only been called pretty tasteless and morally questionable. But Morris is of the opinion that if he ignores it, the reader won't notice either, it seems. All in all, I'm sorry I spent $6 on this. It's a bad book, and it's not even funny. Go see a movie instead. END
