Publisher's Summary

Thomas House looks welcoming from the outside, but inside real horror awaits. Those who have lived there only last a month or two as pure evil still permeates the house.
Virginia and Tom move their family to what they believe is the quiet country house, but it is far from peaceful. Strange events at the house leave them terrified, events which nearly cost them their lives.
With its horrific past, Thomas House isn't a welcoming home, and resents the people who walk through its doors. Doors open and close on their own, apparitions suddenly appear to threaten, and strange sounds resonate at night.
Something dark and sinister lives in the house and wants them out. Now. When Virginia and her son are almost killed by the evil apparitions, her son takes matters into his own hands.

Not Quite Spooky Enough

Any additional comments?

At this point, when I begin a paranormal book I expect to at least be spooked out at some point during the story. "The Haunting of Thomas House" felt a bit generic, a bit rushed and definitely lacked the level of "scary" I would expect. I would recommend this book to readers who like a short, light ghost story but not to anyone who enjoys real horror! Lindsey Dorcus gives a good performance.

I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.

Rushed and generic

I like a good ghost story, and though it's not often one is unique and amazing, they're usually entertaining. This story was short, so I figured, why not?

Unfortunately, the length works against this story. The narrative comes across as a cliff notes version of a bigger work. Important events are glossed over and simply referenced to indicate they happened. Dialogue is clipped and generic, leaving no real development of characters. Even the scenes that are laid out in detail suffer because there's no real attachment to the characters or the events going on.

The final scenes are not only unbelievable, but they don't make a heck of a lot of sense either. Lengthening the story and providing more narrative to build up the world and characters definitely would have helped.

The narrator did a decent job, but didn't really change up her voice or tone for dialogs, which aided in things feeling very generic.

I was provided this audiobook for free in ecchange for my honest review. It's a quick listen, but as I said, I think that works against it. I can't recommend this one.
