Product Details


“A richly horrifying experience…a Gothic manse, honeycombed with secret passages, occult symbolism, and a subterranean river of terror, all there for the right lucky reader to stumble upon in the dead of night, candle raised.” —New York Times Book Review

“Great fun… Boyne keeps up a constant barrage of surprises and the pace is terrific.” —The Times (UK)

“An adventure that will delight Dickens fans and intrigue anyone who dares to follow her on her journey.” —The Daily Express (UK)

“A perfect, shivery gothic tale.” —Booklist

“Like the writers of Victorian ghost tales to which he pays homage, Boyne is a master at creating an unsettling presence. This House Is Haunted gathers momentum right up to the stunning denouement, and ends with one word that serves as an icy finger down the spine.” —Minneapolis Star Tribune

“Boyne’s plotting and pacing are first-rate, and his mastery of the slow-boil is evident…” —The Daily Beast

“[This House Is Haunted] is a classic Dickensian ghost story, with an unexpected and horrific twist.” —Glamour

“Boyne paints a picture that is both gloomy and thrilling, creepy and enticing…The result is a novel, just in time for Halloween, that is fast-paced, unputdownable, lively and intelligent, without being oppressively creepy.” —The Record

“This House Is Haunted is a good old-fashioned ghost story—a real indulgence and a fine read all around.” —Book Reporter

“John Boyne applies his dependably fluid writing style to this eerie Victorian ghost story, which offers an unsettling—in a good way—blend of the conventional and the unexpected…Boyne knows the precise moment to shake things up with a sudden, sharp surprise.” —Reading The Past

“Literate horror fans will take wicked delight in [This House Is Haunted]…” —Bookpage

“Rife with Gothic elements, This House is Haunted will please fans of Jane Eyre, Ann Radcliffe and the like. A beautiful call back to the height of Gothic Literature.” —The Readist

This House is Haunted by John Boyne is everything a classic ghost story should be…pure Gothic fun.” —Fourth Street Review

“Fans of Gothic novels will definitely enjoy This House is Haunted. Its appeal, however, stretches further than to just those who are looking for an entertaining Gothic homage…[A]n alluring work of fiction that encompasses what we most look for in a novel.” —Acid Free Pulp
