    It started out ok with some good spooky chapters But as the book went on it got a little silly with some very adolescent horror moments Very predictable and an absolutely horrendous ending Just my opinion though

    Goodreads First Reads advanced copyI really wanted to like this book The premise seemed really promising as I enjoy good supernatural horror stories Further to be honest there were parts where the story really took off and seemed to be drawing my attention However there were just too many aspects of the story that prevent me from rating it higher than 3 stars and to me that is being a bit generousFirst and foremost every time one of the main characters called his wife 'baby cakes' or 'sweetie pie' or 'angel sweets' I wanted to throw the book across the room Almost every time he spoke to her he used at least one of these 'terms of endearment' and rather than feeling natural it just enraged me Perhaps there are people who converse with their significant other in this way but it felt too unnatural to me Another part of the story that did not work for me had to do with the main character's background The author was asking me to suspend too much disbelief in my opinion How did her step father somehow create an exact image of the supernatural creatures in the current story in order to terrify her into behaving The description the step father gave was too similar to the creatures while not necessarily being something normally thought to terrify a childAnother aspect I found strange was that the husband and wife were so 'attractive' that they seemed to be viewed by every other character of the opposite sex as a desirable mate This to me felt completely unlike life Every person's tastes are different Statistically speaking it should be impossible for everyone they come across to be attracted to them Lastly I know that in most stories especially horror stories there are deaths It is to be expected It seemed like the author was checking off characters from a list to make sure everyone died except the main character and a couple characters that were hardly even knownOverall I cannot specifically recommend The Inn to any one person Some people may like it as I did see some parts where the story started to take life Who knows? If you like to read as much as I do and you enjoy supernatural horror stories perhaps you will like The Inn

    Not the worse book I ever read but not very good either Too many redundancies and silly stupid choices made by the main character Very unbelievable and unrelatable At one point towards the end I felt like the author was forcing some of the parts of the story to make it longer or gruesome and scary but I was left feeling like the book would have been better if it ended faster and directly Dragging it out only made me want to not finish it but I had already given too much of my time to the book to not finish it The writing style and word usage felt very amateur Jack Devlin's character felt very cardboard and he was extremely irritating when every other word out of his mouth was stupid cheesy pet names for his wife I think the author was trying to say that the house was alive and evil but it didn't feel that way There was really no emotion from the house or the atmosphere to indicate it was the house that was evil The little blue creatures and the insane occupants of the house took away from the house And I was left wondering if the blue creatures were in fact the same creatures Daddy Ron was torturing Annabelle with and seems too weird for coincidence This book had so much potential I loved the idea of a haunted inn but that is not what this story is really about There are no ghost just tiny blue demons that I just cannot find scary The only part of the book that i thought was actually scary was the crazy sister in the attic I do feel like everything surrounding Cindy was well done except for the fact of a woman killing so many people with nothing but a knife is a little far fetched even if the house did give her extra strength Just a disappointing read that didn't live up to its potential

    I like creepy stories I saw this at the airport read the synopsis and decided it was perfect to read on the flight home It starts out as a pretty engaging story The characters all have some baggage and it makes them interesting Without doing too much in the Spoiler arena I'll explain where the story started falling apart for meThe main character Anabelle was born and raised in Manhattan and her dad was killed in the Ira War With the cost of housing military salaries and lack of military facilities in Manhattan that makes no sense And as another reviewer pointed out how can it be that her step father's imaginary boogie man is actually what manifests itself at The Inn? Although some other reviewers liked the little demon's name I thought it was insipid even for a child There are some really great moments were I thought Wow that was really clever unfortunately there were just as many where I just thought Really?The book was also riddled with typos and sentence fragments where time was wasted trying to figure out what I was supposed to understand about that paragraph The Proof Reader at the publisher needs to be replacedThe one thing that I thought of that might possibly make this book make sense is something that no one else has mentioned The Anabelle character is a recovering addict of several flavors who is said to hallucinate I propose that there were no demons possessions or dead sisters with a knife doing anything at The Inn Anabelle hallucinated all the paranormal behaviors based on the stories she'd been told she killed everyone and I mean everyone This can explain why she is the only survivor to the holocaust

    I had originally started writing a detailed review of this title I gave up about 13 of the way in I wanted to like this book I am a sucker for a good haunted house story This was not a good haunted house story The characters and story line was all lazy trope writing I could have written better in 8th grade I found myself rolling my eyes at Annabelle on almost every other page Here are some of the multitude of things that sauntered through my brain as I read this Of course she is a recovering drug addict Of course he cheated on her while she was in rehab Of course she was an abused child Of course she still hallucinates Of course she has to be described as beautiful by every male character in the book Of course there's scary old people Of course there's secret passageways Oh and a ghost covered in blood how original There really are too many things to mention However one other thing did stick out to me and that was in a scene toward the end where the miraculously still alive handsome police chief pulls her into a closet to hide and kisses her to keep her uiet That is not a valid way to keep anyone uiet unless it's consented to That was sexual assault which of course we touched on earlier when Jack came on to Tammy but because it was a good character trying to save our wilting female it just wasn't considered assult y enough?

    I received a copy of this book through a Goodreads giveaway in exchange for an honest review I'm going to keep my thoughts really short on this book because I seriously dislike unfavourable reviews This book is the paper euivalent of a random cheesy horror movie that you can't believe you wasted your time on when you finished itIt started out OK but that was the best that it got The plot and characters did nothing for me and I debated giving up on it numerous times It just didn't have that certain something that made me want to read and know Not my cup of teaI'm giving it two stars instead of one only because I have read worse books


  9. says:

    Not greatReally had high expectations for this book It didn't live up to them Poor character development and the plot and dialogue were almost as bad Characters didn't make reasonable decisions or react to situations in a reasonable or believable manner Too bad because it had a great deal of potential

    From my book blog wwwJetBlackDragonflyblogspotcomWilliam Paterson is a connoisseur of horror films especially the made for TV variety of the 1970's I also love classic movies like Trilogy of Terror and Let's Scare Jessica To Death With The Inn he has written both a homage and an engaging but sadly not terrifying thrillerAnnabel leaves New York with her husband after a mental breakdown They agree to run the old family inn that Jack's grandmother still lives in along with a grizzled old caretaker If she knew before arriving that it was listed in guidebooks as a 'haunted house' for thrill seeking guests to visit she would have stayed home There is another couple staying at the inn British ghost hunters excited by the history of the house The first day the two couples arrive ghosts are sighted in the woods and the strange events begin At first excited by renovation plans Annabel uickly discovers the house or the deadly evil dwelling within does not want to be touched Jack has neglected to tell her his family history that his grandfather his mother his sister his father various neighbours and every guest who ever stayed in the house has disappeared or turned up as a head or a hand The new arrivals will be no exception including a string of contractors and workers and forget about calling the police as they also disappear When a whiteout snowstorm arrives and her husband begins to act almost possessed and her troubles really beginAs horror stories go this seems to have everything you could want including nods to classic horror themes It had a lot of promise but for me there was a major flaw I couldn't get over whom I'll call Tommy Tricky to not spoil it for anyone The explanation of her fear of him was not enough and too coincidental he would show up again As the house unleashes it's demons they were too humorous to be frightening which severely dulled what could have been a shocker I wish it were serious like The Sentinal This was a solid read but the action too comical to keep you up at night which is what I am always hoping for I love to be scared and am always looking for a good ghost story I have a copy of his other thriller Slice so I'll try him againI found myself thinking I'd rather reread Burnt Offerings by Robert Marasco
