User Review  - bhabeck - LibraryThing

This is one of those books that just seems like it's about a "whole lot of nothing" - the characters weren't interesting, the storyline was silly and by the end of the book all I could think was "what a waste of two days" Read full review

Well, I liked the characters and the dialogue and how the author set up the tension of the house. But nothing really happens until page 127, and really, nothing really happens. I would be scared to be in that house, but... Still, I LOVE Mrs. Dudley, so there you go! Read full review

Potentially a very scary play, although for it to be terrifying for modern audiences some of the characters need to be played rather differently to how they are written. Mr Montague seems a bit blimpish, Mrs Montague a bit too much like Hyacinth Bouquet, whilst Eleanor and Theodora on occasions drop rather too easily back into offhand witticisms instead of being properly scared out of their wits. That said, it's a good story and plays well, but the characters need a bit of a reworking for a modern setting if it's to really grip people.
