This is the second novel I have read by this author and I have to say she sure knows how to write an atmospheric and disturbing read!

The house that Avril and Clayton move in to sounds wonderful. A big rambling house set in the wonderful moors of Haworth where the famous Bronte sisters lived. Sadly though it does come with a bit of history.

I loved that the story is set around an actual painting that has a very disturbing history of its own. It makes the whole story feel more real which makes it very creepy!

Both Avril and Clayton have been through the mill. To lose a child has to be a parents worst nightmare and my heart went out to both characters. What I loved though is that both characters are quite flawed. Neither are perfect and it actually made them more human and easier to relate to.

The Crying Boy is a story full of suspense that is very much a mix of the super natural and horror genre. It would be great for on the screen that’s for sure. There is a great build up through out the story and it’s one that will have you on tender hooks all the way through. A highly enjoyable read.

The crying boy is the eagerly awaited second novel from the truly talented author Jane E James. As my friends know, i'm a big fan and after the wait this one does not disappoint.

We meet Avril & Clayton. A couple who have suffered a tragedy that no-one should have to bear. I cannot imagine the heartache and the upset that they've had to endure. To help move on, they move house. They buy a stunning long, low, sprawling property that sits on the edge of the Yorkshire Moors, Swallows Nest. With the house comes a painting, The Crying Boy. With the painting comes a story all of its own. 

I like my stories to be captivating & scary. I like to feel the goosebumps and the chill as icy cold fingers trace the curve of my spine, whilst i am completely immersed in the pages. This hits the spot! I really enjoy Janes writing style, it is confident and flowing and easy to read allowing the reader to enjoy the story in it's entirety. With it's descriptive prowess and in depth personalities of the characters who are perfectly imperfect, we have here a cleverly woven tale of horror and the supernatural that is nothing short of a treat. I have no problem at all in recommending this to everyone.
