Book Description

Cracked and weathered binding, hiding mysteries on pages tied closed by a bloodstained string. A happy young family enchanted by dreams and possibilities. A barren, empty room. A boy with no friends obsessively drawing angles, edges and diagrams.

In his debut novel, Alex Kimmell captures a vivid and startling tale of fear. Auden’s journey begins when he discovers a curious leather-bound book whose contents will soon endanger his entire family. The pages of this book draw him into a prison that cannot be breached, a place that can only be unlocked with a very special key.

In The Key to Everything, fear is explored and heightened through jarring imagery and a terrifying, unique menace, ratcheting up the tension until the novel’s gripping climax.

Having read the summary and great reviews over on I had high hopes for this book. I love a good haunted house tale but unfortunately I couldn't get over the fact its written in 2nd person, for example "You're queasy. It's difficult to focus your eyes on anything..."

I just couldn't get to grips with the narrator (a 30 something US father of two) referred to as me (a 30 something UK based child-free female). I found reading about myself doing or saying things I would never do, and mentions of "my" male genitalia, just really bizarre and constantly jarring. It completely got in the way my enjoyment of the story. Others might not find this a problem but it just didn't work for me and I sadly gave up at around 18% - hence the 1 star.

Shame really as what I did read was engaging and the characters, dialogue and plot seemed good.

I look forward to other things by this author, hopefully written in another tense.

1.0 out of 5 stars I wanted to love this book ... 3 Feb. 2013

But alas I couldn't get on with the tense in which it was written, which distracted me from the story. I made it about a third through but then gave up. I shall give another go sometime perhaps, I still have it on my kindle but it maybe a while.
