Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?
I would recommend this book to a friend because it really brings you on the adventure within the pages, as if the story starts to unfold right before your own eyes. I felt I was somewhat sucked into the adventure, my sister had told me I was unresponsive, staring at my kindle for about an hour, only stopping once or twice to get a drink of water. And I have never done that before, maybe it was just because the kindle was cool or maybe I blanked out…?
All I can say is that the storyline is amazing, the characters, fascinating and the mystery.. Ghostly. But I would most likely recommend this for mystery, thriller and maybe horror readers, as this story can sometimes get a bit spooky.All in all, it's a great read, one I would definitely recommend to all over the age of 10 or older.
