From Matt Shaw (author of The Cabin, Happy Ever After and Sick B*stards) comes a new novella; a tale of psychological horror and slow-building tension leading to an unforgettable climax.

First off, the narrarator did this thing with his voice where he would drop it down unnaturally low; it was very annoying. I think I could have dealt with it if it had been the book's only issue.
The story itself started off okay and held my attention well for a while. It wasn't one that was difficult to walk away from, but I did care about the characters and wnated to know what was going on with them. And then, the story shifted. It went from being a supernatural thriller to one that should be filed away in the erotica section. In the beginning, the couple in the story was intimate, but by the end of the book, everyone was and in a more graphic manner than they were in the beginning. It was like he couldn't figure out what to do with these characters, so he would fill the pages with sex and hope for the best. The actual story line at the end of the book was weak and was poorly covered by the author's attempt at erotica. It was not scary and was actually pretty lame.

What a let-down!
What disappointed you about A House in the Country?
Can appreciate there are short stories but this just didn't have enough time or quality to go anywhere - got to the end and just thought 'so what'?!! :-/
Has A House in the Country put you off other books in this genre?
Not at all! BUT wouldn't be tempted to read any more of author's books!
How did the narrator detract from the book?
Pseudo-creepy , condescending voice! Nearly gave up a couple times but hoped the story would be a good one - but being as it wasn't, feel let down and cheated on that book.
You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?
It had the potential to be BETTER that's the sad and unfortunate thing!
Any additional comments?
