4.0 out of 5 stars A good read, 30 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Four Months of Terror: The True Story of a Family's Haunting (True Hauntings Book 1) (Kindle Edition)
This is the alleged (and I use that word carefully) true story of the author's childhood in a house in Mount Sterling. I enjoyed this short narrative tale as it was *actually* believable (unlike some supposed true stories I've read, that are just filled with cliches and lines straight from the movies). What I liked about it was the innocence behind the story (as it's told from a child's point of view, but only several years later) and it leaves a lot of unanswered questions.
This is by no means a bad thing, of course. Some things in this world just are what they are; unexplainable. And I think that gave a huge nudge towards the "honesty department" as many other authors would have just made things up to make their story longer. Whereas RP-H has told her story in its entirety without trying to achieve a large wordcount. So for that, I found it easy to get into.
My only grievance with this book, is that I kept having to go back and reread parts that I felt could have been explained/described better. Other than that, I enjoyed it and read it in one take. It has also made me go on to purchase another one of her (longer) books. So I look forward to my next read.

I wouldn't normally comment on a review but since this is nonfiction, and yours was so well written and thought out, I wanted to take a moment and thank you. I actually started writing down the things that happened in the house because, since so many years have gone by, I didn't want to forget them (as you eventually start doing). I understood early on that there wasn't enough to make a full book and I appreciate the fact that YOU were okay with the length. I thought many people would be turned away by the number of pages, but I didn't want to make anything up or embellish the events. I knew that might not make it as "scary" as some books but, it is what it is. :-) So thank you for your review. It's a little disjointing writing about one's life. I don't know that some of the things that happened would be as scary to me as an adult, but as a child they were terrifying. Even going back and remembering some of them gave me some sleepless nights! I'm thankful that you, as a reader, weren't turned off by the short amount of content and I thank you for checking out one of my other books.
