Read Ghost Story ☆ eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF #1 New York Times bestselling author Peter Straub’s classic tale of horror secrets and the dangerous ghosts of the past What was the worst thing you’ve ever done In the sleepy town of. I don t think one can truly rate Ghost Story as a novel without acknowledging the fact that it s a literary homage to the classics of the genre Indeed two characters bear the surnames of Hawthorne and JamesThis is my introduction to the work of Peter Straub Having read The Talisman and Black House which he co authored with Stephen King I was anxious to know how he writes on his own and Ghost Story came recommended by virtually everyone who has read it As mentioned in the first paragraph Ghost Story is a homage to the old masters who paved the road of fright for future generations Peter Straub himself says that Ghost Story started as a result of my having just read all the American supernatural fiction I could find It is noticeable the first part is largely a reworking of The Turn of The Screw The theme of a story within a story is everpresent as the work deals with a group of old men who tell themselves ghost stories on regular meetings Shades of Lovecraft Poe and Hawthorne brood in the corners of the rooms they sit inThe men find themselves terrorized by terrible realistic nightmares Terrible things start happening in the small sleepy town of MillburnThey remember the crime they had committed years beforeand wonder if the time of retribution has finally arrivedWhat s not to like Several things first of all the pace the book is monstrous slog A chore to get through Straub switches between several narrative viewpoints much like Stoker in Dracula and the plot plods freuently and slows down so much that reading soon becomes a challenge There s no doubt that Straub is a great writer some of his passages I ve read several times because I simply enjoyed them so much but he becomes lost in what he tries to do the references he includes so subtly vanish in the detail he describes so voraciouslyThe protagonists discuss ghost stories they tell to each other but for some reason refuse to talk about the one they all share even when darkness has fallen upon their city Instead of trying to scheme how to fight or at least delay the danger they remain passive No one fights back No one things of moving away and running from the deadly force The passivity the stupidness of their actions drastically slows down the plot and kills any tension that might have emerged It would be understandable if the novel featured only one protagonist who witnessed these events and who would be afraid to entrust his story to others in fear of being considered insane but Ghost Story features a group of men who believe each other and do nothingThe theme of a town besieged by malevolent forces or beings has been done previously most notably by Peter Straub s fellow writer and friend Stephen King in Salem s Lot Straub acknowledges the influcence I wanted to work on a large canvas Salem s Lot showed me how to do this without getting lost among a lot of minor characters Besides the large canvas I also wanted a certain largeness of effectHowever while Salem s Lot was swift fast paced and competent in dealing with the theme Ghost Story doesn t uite deliver The town of Millburn is described as a small town but it completely lacks any awareness and interaction The characters seem to be detached from reality everyone walks everywhere and there s little mention of pop culture music television and such The novel is supposed to take time in the 1970s but for all we are shown it might just as well be the 1870sLast the Evil with a capital E While the concept of the Evil is really interesting the Evil is really inconsistent and incompetent There s no sense of looming presence of Evil ready to fall upon the heads of innocent people and end their lives at any moment like in Salem s Lot or Phantoms Evil seems to be employed when it is needed by the narrative and then pushed back only to be called again later I don t want to spoil anything but the nature of the Evil and it s actions don t follow any pattern of logic and reason Evil is at times omniscient and capable of incredible power only to have its abilities reduced to humanlike status and then go back to the supernatural and all powerful again Evil capable of everything is boring why it d take a snap of fingers to eliminate a human being much like a child breaking a twig in two but one might wonder why the author chose to grant his menace that priviledge only to take it backand then allow it to be all poweful again several timesOverall I m sad to say that Ghost Story doesn t live up to the hype that surrrounds it While it is a complex multilayered work a homage to the creators of the genre It s not very compelling and in fact is pretty easy to put down and leave unfinished The concept the idea of the novel the premise the prose the situations everything works but not as a whole I think I like the idea of the book better than the book itself Peter Straub tends to be meandering and repetitive There are sections of Ghost Story that are narrated brilliantly but there are sections that are stale and uninteresting For each flash of suspense and atmosphere there s a whole lot of mundane and ordinary The idea of the novel deserves five stars but I can t give the novel itself than three I liked it but I liked analysing the text than reading it Nevertheless Peter Straub is an ambitious writer who s much literary than most horror authors his prose and style easily rivals the so called serious writers and I most certainly will read his other novels The Tradition of horror secrets and the dangerous ghosts Un Avion sans elle of the past What was the worst thing you’ve ever done

Read Ghost Story ☆ eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF Milburn New York four old men gather to tell each other stories some true some made up all of them frightening A simple pastime to divert themselves from their uiet livesBut one story is c. I am SO glad that I finally re read this book I was afraid that it wouldn t hold up to my memory of it I worried about that for decades Silly me I needn t have worried it was even better than I remembered This beautifully written story of evil in a small town has a lot in common with Stephen King s IT as far as the small town portion goes Derry and Milburn are similar in a lot of ways Despite the title this book isn t really a ghost story Just like in IT IT isn t really a clown Ghost Story is about a small group of men who made a mistake in their youth and rather than face up to it they went about hiding it instead This leads to conseuences none of them could have possibly foreseen But WE can see those conseuences and unfortunately they are often deadly GHOST STORY was my favorite novel for many years mostly because of the intricacy of it The stories of these men the stories about the relatives of these men and the stories about the town itself wind around and through each other to me it s like a beautifully woven tapestry of art I have to think that the author had it all planned out from the very beginning otherwise how could it have been so wonderfully done This book isn t for everyone and I get that It wasn t even for me at one time it took me three tries to get into it back in the day For those people that it DOES work for They will sit back when they re done just like I did and marvel at the skill on display here My highest recommendation I ve purchased this book 3 times so far my original copy was lost then I bought a paperback copy but the print was too small so I purchased a Kindle copy I d buy it again if I had to
