best. ghost. story. ever.
i've read it three times now.
i wanted to get another reading in before the movie comes out next week (which i cannot wait for!!). from the looks of it, they've gotten a little free with the plot/story, but it's hollywood. what can you expect.
as for the book: it never disappoints. chilling! every single time.
the book is the story of arthur kipps, a young lawyer who is sent to settle the affairs of a recently deceased client. as soon as he arrives in town he begins to sense that there is some horror attached to his client and her house, which he brushes off as simple townsfolk nonsense.
all too soon he is personally acquainted with the reality of those horrors, and pays a price for his meddling.
read it. ideally at night in the fall or winter. you won't be disappointed.
