Format: Hardcover
A novel more about male friendships and aging, than about ghosts, the story is engaging, authentic, and yes, scary (by implication - nothing explicit) at times.

It is a nice bonus that Canadian small city values and culture (and hockey) also form the stage for the unfolding narrative.

PS. The featured review of this book in the Globe &
Mail (Jan 8th, 2011) gives it much praise.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is the second Andrew Pyper book that I have read. The first being The Wildfire Season. I enjoyed that book, and really enjoyed this one.
Right from the start I liked all of these believeable "Guardian" characters in the book. Each of the 4 main characters are ordinary yet very interesting. The book takes us on a roller coaster ride from current times to the past where an incident happened to them, that they want left in the past, but the past has crept back.
There were some good twists, and very creepy parts. Andrew Pyper has a great way with words, and thought provoking ways of looking at situations and life.
Except for a tiny bit 3/4 of the way through the book, which was a tiny bit over the top, I loved this book, and was still thinking about these 4 men and the house and the story weeks after I finished it.
My next Andrew Pyper will be the Demonologist.... can't wait.

I loved this book and think it deserves to be where it is...on the best selling list of Canadian books (Number 2 on Maclean's Reading List). To me, it was one of the best horror novels I have ever read....as good or better than the best books of Stephen King. I was actually afraid at some points to turn the pages and continue but the story is so gripping and I cared about the characters so much, I had to.
I also enjoyed how small town life was portrayed in this novel, having grown up myself in a small town in Canada. There was the rink and the ubiquitous haunted house. But this is a book about more than just a haunted house. It is a great look at what is inside of us and about loyalty and friendship.
Pyper's Lost Girls was a great read as well....but he is getting better and I am looking forward towards his next project.
