Amazon.com: HASH(0xa9a90f3c) out of 5 stars 1 review
HASH(0xa9a94d68) out of 5 stars Creepy Atmosphere. Yet the Ending Leaves More Questions than Answers. May 26 2015
By Kenneth A. McKinley - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Eric and Peg live with their ex-senator grandfather in a large, old house in an Indianapolis neighborhood. Their mysteriously ill mother also lives there where she is rarely seen and holes up in her room. And then there is Lynn. Lynn is an unseen "sibling" that their grandfather rescued from the middle east to raise in their home. Eric and Peg have never seen Lynn and their dominating grandfather demands absolute quiet and solitude as he "tudors" the young genius Lynn. Tension slowly builds as anyone that questions Lynn's existance meet an untimely death or disappearance. The two children try to piece together what is going on before they become the next victims.

The Offspring is a shadowy offering with an interesting premise and lots of Gothic atmosphere that slowly builds to what we think is going to be a big payday of an ending. No such luck. Unfortunately, the ending raises more questions than it answers and ends up being a muddled mess that doesn't make much sense. Its really too bad because Williamson's storytelling has always been his biggest strength. In The Offspring, it seemed he had some good ideas that attemtped to grown, but, alas, never bore fruit.

3 1/2 out of 5 stars
