    From front to back, this book will grab you and not let go. This was an easy read that has an excellent story. Outstanding work by the Crouch boys!

    Eerie has Blake's trademark suspense, blended with spine-tingling horror. While this one is a slight departure in genre, the writing is every bit as brilliant. The horror here isn't gory, but is high in creepiness!

    One of my favorite things about Blake's writing is his ability to capture a character's essence. There are never any caricatures on his pages. The characters are unique, heroic and fallible, multi-dimensional, and always pull me right into the story with them.

    Eerie is the product of the first collaboration between brothers Blake and Jordan Crouch. The writing is seamless, making it impossible to tell which brother wrote which parts. These are two gifted brothers and I hope to read many more collaborations between them!

    Thanks to a random log in to Facebook, I got the opportunity to read EERIE before it was released. As always, Crouch's latest did not disappoint. The gore is practically nonexistent in this one (most of his stuff is actually much less blood and guts than it seems), but rather it is genuinely scary. Like when I read PET SEMETARY when I was 12 scary. It's also interesting to note that Blake collaborated on this one with his younger brother, Jordan, and that this is our first exposure to the younger Crouch's writing. Jordan Crouch's first full length is on the way according to the interview at the end of the book, which I'm very much looking forward to.

    Eerie is definitely eerie!

    Glad I borrowed this from a friend! It was hard to put down. Just when you think you have figured it out, there's another surprise. It was nice to read something with a different plot!

    A great read!

    I have read other books by Blake Crouch and loved them. This is no exception. It has several 'hair on the back of the neck stands up' moments and I really did not see that ending coming. If you like a little horror mixed in with a bit of ghost, this is the book for you.

    I love horror books, so EERIE was right up my alley. The premise behind the book is a good ol' fashioned ghost story, or at least, it started out that way. It's a definite "why are these things happing" kind of book. No sooner did I start to read it, I was hooked. But I do warn you, if you're afraid of the boogeyman, I'd read this one during the day, outside, away from any bedrooms.

    Blake and Jordan do a fantastic job of appealing to a reader's emotions through their storytelling. Again, this is why I love horror so much... the adrenaline induced fear goes beyond the written page. I had my moments of "do I really want to finish this?" which ultimately passed as I kept reading and now I'm stuck with the notion that they could have added more, especially towards the end, because really, I didn't want the story to end.

    I have read a lot of this authors books and love them. this one was very different. Awesome would be the word. Trapped in a house, trying to figure out how to get out, why they are trapped. A very, very cool and interesting book. Keep up the great work!
