3.0 out of 5 stars The Undying Monster 25 April 2004
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
The plot is good, but the writing is difficult to follow. A dark 1,000 year old family mystery is discovered with the help of a "supersensitive" who can unlock the subconcious "hereditary memory."

Has been reprinted in a British paperback edition in the late 1970's-early 1980s. My copy, Macmillan, 1936, is titled "The Undying Monster. A Tale of the Fifth Dimension", 256 pp.; 14 cm x 22.2 cm.
5.0 out of 5 stars A great read! 30 July 2011

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. If you're into tales of the supernatural, this is a beauty. Without saying too much, I particularly liked the unusual approach the investigator takes to get to the bottom of the 'problem' the family about which the story is set faces. It might even appeal to fans of old-school horror.
I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

2.0 out of 5 stars undying monster, not a great read 9 Jun 2013
By Terry Lash - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I found undying monster to be a frustrating read. even with UK spelling, there are too many errors. the story has too much filler and not enough action. the language is a little frustrating to decipher and it didnt get good til near the end. not worth the price.
