The Little Stranger by Sarah Waters Giveaway

29th Aug


With fall just around the corner, I have begun my quest for scary, suspenseful thrillers, mysteries, and movies that will raise the hair on the back of my neck. The Little Stranger hits theaters on August 31. The movie is based on the best selling book by the same title written by Sarah Waters. Grab a cuppa and check out the movie trailer and enter to win one of three copies of the book, The Little Stranger.

From Bookmarks Magazine “At its core, The Little Stranger is an old-fashioned ghost story, complete with spooky house, eccentric inhabitants, an air of general madness and malcontent, and a narrator who may not be as mild-mannered as he seems. What elevates this novel from the crowded genre is Waters’s ability to evoke the subtleties of the past as she skillfully weaves tension and dread into each paragraph. The reviewer from Newsday likened this tale to the psychological classic The Haunting of Hill House by Shirley Jackson. Perhaps the critic from the Telegraph (who voiced only a very minor complaint about the ending) summed up the reviewers’ opinions best of all by hailing this novel as a genuinely creepy story “guaranteed to make anyone with a pulse gibber in fright.”

THE LITTLE STRANGER tells the story of Dr Faraday, the son of a housemaid, who has built a life of quiet respectability as a country doctor. During the long hot summer of 1948, he is called to a patient at Hundreds Hall, where his mother once worked. The Hall has been home to the Ayres family for more than two centuries. But it is now in decline and its inhabitants – mother, son and daughter – are haunted by something more ominous than a dying way of life. When he takes on his new patient, Faraday has no idea how closely, and how disturbingly, the family’s story is about to become entwined with his own.

"Several sleepless nights are guaranteed."—Stephen King, Entertainment Weekly

One postwar summer, in his home in rural Warwickshire, Dr. Faraday is called to a patient at Hundreds Hall.

Its owners--mother, son, and daughter--are struggling to keep pace with a changing society. But are the Ayreses haunted by something more sinister than a dying way of life?

    I’m not entering as I’m in Canada, but I just wanted to pipe in that I listened to The Little Stranger on audio and it was excellent!! I really enjoyed it, and I had no idea that it was coming to the big screen.

    I can be kind of a wimp when it comes to scary books, but I have to admit that this one sounds so good. I’ll be on the lookout for your review and will decide then if I’m too chicken to read the book, lol.

    I need to find some good thrillers and horror for the upcoming Halloween season. I might have to start The Bill Hodges Trilogy. I know that was one you loved and I love King. But, I’ve also been thinking about revisiting NOS4A2. This looks good too. So many choices.
