Though I couldn't put it down, I have trouble being enthusiastic in recommending this book. The writing seemed to get lazier & lazier towards the end. Also there could have been more hints as to the "reality" of the situation rather than having to decide if Mimi really saw some of the things she did. The 1st half was creepy as heck, I'll give you that!

Not a bad story over all. However 1974 or 2014 it would have been the same. I was a little disappointed that the historical details were lacking in order to set the time period up better. All in all a pretty decent scary story...
