'That oh-so-unassuming title does not equip you for the journey you're about to undertake. Immersive, claustrophobic and utterly wonderful.' -M.R. Carey, New York Times bestselling author of The Girl With All the Gifts.
'Kim Newman gets inside your head like pollen off a field of wildflowers; the pleasant idyllic turns full of suffocating dread. Thoroughly enjoyable, master storytelling.' - Lauren Beukes, bestselling author of The Shining Girls.
'A masterful and often disturbing updating of the traditional haunted house story given a modern twist by an author who continues to push the limits of every genre he works in.' - World Fantasy Award-winning editor Stephen Jones
'Fine surprises in store for unsuspecting readers. Nicely done.' -Booklist
'All the elements of a classic spook story... beautifully written' -SFX
'Kim Newman s haunted house is complex, multi-layered and, most important of all, believably scarY.' -Choice Magazine
'With An English Ghost Story, Kim Newman shows that he can't help himself when he tackles a genre, he reinvents it. This time it's the haunted house novel, given a radical makeover that both references the past and looks to the future...suffice it to say that tales of terrifying dwellings will never be the same again.' - --The Independent
"An English Ghost Story is a terrific read!" --William Friedkin

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
That said, there were some really fun nightmarish ideas in there that reminded me of some of my own bad dreams.
Despite this, it left me unsatisfied.
I love ghost stories especially ones based in the UK but this was just terrible, I very rarely give up on books but just after half way through i couldn't take anymore of forcing myself to carry on with it.
The story outline on the back cover deceives you into thinking your buying a tense, page turning, new breed of British ghost story....you are not!
The story is boring, the characters unlikeable from the start and the book is padded with just unnecessary parts I think as the author had realised the story was a dud and was trying to find ways to fill it up.
Avoid this and save your money!
