Horror house with creepy side-kicks

The House by Bentley Little

The story revolves around five people, four men and one woman, who start to have supernatural events happen around them, all relating to the houses in which they grew up. Eventually, they all come to the realisation that they must return to their childhood homes, which seem to be the source of the problem.

I found the novel to be confusing due to the number of character POVs, all their background stories, relatives, friends. It was information overload sometimes and I often found I had forgotten who had done, what, where and with whom. Plus there is a lot of overlap in each character’s ‘childhood house’ stories which can get repetitive.

This is definitely not one for those who like mild horror and there is a lot of sex scenes (child involved) which many readers will find disturbing. But this is a horror novel which includes that as a shock value.

The pace moved along okay, but as said before, it can get repetitive. The plot does keep you wondering if anyone will survive until the end.

The narrator did a good job. I didn’t have to speed the audio up, although there were a couple of occasions when I thought there had been a little editing mistake or the wrong voice was in use for a character.
Overall, the story was interesting and the production good.

I'm sorry but this narrator is awful!!!

The story is confusing!! it doesn't help that the narrator uses the same monotone. there's no inflection in his voice except when he tries to over say a word!!

Other Dimensions

Another great story from Bentley Little. It seems to flow over to SF rather than just horror which you associate with Bentley's books. It is about several houses on the border of other dimensions. Five people are drawn back to the house where they are born but each of their houses become one. They have been brought back back to strengthen the border between dimensions and cannot escape the house. But, are distracted and seduced by a little girl in a dirty shift who is not what she seems. She wants the border down and to take over the houses. Can the five stop her and gain back their freedom from the clutches of the house?
