Hell House will probably be my lowest rated book this year….I hope. I honestly don’t know why I finished it. But let’s get to my review.
All attempts to probe the mysteries of Belasco House have ended in murder, suicide, or insanity–but now a new investigation has been launched, bringing four strangers in search of the ultimate secrets of life and death.
My Thoughts on Hell House
Hell House seemed promising in the beginning. It had a good ominous atmosphere. But that’s the only positive thing I have to say about this one. First off, it took forever for the haunting to start and once it did, I didn’t care if anything happened to the characters. They had no depth and the dialogue felt forced. And when they showed a tiny glimpse of their personalities, I didn’t like any of them.
My next problem was it was overly sexual. Like weirdly sexual. Normally, that doesn’t really bother me. I mean I’ve read IT and we all know what happens during IT. I’m aware that sex in horror stories is a thing. But this was need to see a psychiatrist because Freud might be right sexual. I’m concerned for the authors well-being. I know that seems harsh but if you don’t believe me just read the book.
Anyhow, I don’t know why I finished this. It took me three weeks and it’s only a 300-page book. This is a perfect example of why you should dnf if you’re not feeling a book.
