A 5 star read
The House on Abigail Lane by Kealan Patrick Burke is the story of a mysterious house that spans over 60 years. If you know me, you know by now that I am a sucker for creepy houses, and this novella did not let me down.
The story itself is presented as a non-fiction documentary of sorts, all written by an unknown author. It goes into detail of the various disappearances connected to the house, and the people that lived there. It is in fact, so convincing, that I googled if this really happened. I did not, or did it? Burke was able to blur the lines between fact and fiction so well, that I still have no clue.
I have to point out that there was one little scene in the text, which scared the bejesus out of me especially. All I’m gonna say is mailman and windows. Phew!
I also admire the fact that in 68 pages, the author brought up not only racial injustice, but also PTSD pertaining to soldiers. He handled both topics informed and tactfully.
So, read this novella and ALL HAIL THE SUNFLOWER GOD!
Little note: I just saw this novella and Sour Candy are optioned for films. That is freaking amazing.
