Avatar for Laura P. Laura P. said:
Uberhappy, attractive and successful Colquitt Kennedy is dismayed when she learns a house is to be built on the wooded lot next door. After the house is built however, it’s beautiful and she and her husband have befriended the architect. All seems well until people move in. Three families live in the house in the course of the novel and all come to bad ends. From loss of career, to mental breakdown and escalating to murder, it seems the house it out to get people. Eventually Col and husband Walter sacrifice their comfortable lives to come out and let the public know that they believe the house is evil. All in all an ok book, the first I’ve read by this author. I was hoping for a bit more of a sense of horror but it was pretty tame. Made into a mediocre movie in 2006.
