Ghost Story

by Peter Straub

“In life, not every sin goes unpunished.”

GHOST STORY

For four aging men in the terror-stricken town of Milburn, New York, an act inadvertently carried out in their youth has come back to haunt them. Now they are about to learn what happens to those who believe they can bury the past – and get away with murder.

Peter Straub’s classic bestseller is a work of “superb horror” (The Washington Post Book World) that, like any good story, stand the test of time – and conjures our darkest fears and nightmares.

Review: Finished Friday, April 27th, 2007. Okay, how should I do this without concerning people … it wasn’t a bad book. Honestly, it wasn’t, but Straub writes sort of like Stephen King, the weird, strange, creepy stuff, and I need to be in the mood to read it. I wasn’t, and that’s more than likely why I had a hard time getting into it, and getting it finished. It’s not that it wasn’t interesting, cause it was, I just wastn’ in the mood to read that kind of writing. I thought the characters played out well, however shallow some seemed. The book bounced around some between characters, which I actually sort of liked, kind of like getting different points of view and feelings from each character about what’s going on. I may even read it again if I’m in the mood for the strange, weird and creepy.
