    One Of A Kind!!!!

    How do I describe this amazing book? It's hard! It's got everything! It's a ghost story, love story, mystery, it's got intrigue, murder, supernatural. Despite all this the book is by NO MEANS cluttered or stilted, the action just flows seamlessly. The characters and plotlines are well written. The Uncanny is EASILY my favorite horror novel and an all around wonderful novel!

    unique and original...

    The Uncanny is a unique and original mystery/suspense novel.

    I was pretty much in awe of the characters throughout the whole book. Andrew Klavan gave them such depth and complexity. Every one of them had a distinct personality full of little idiosyncrasies.

    The story itself is exciting, full of twists and turns. The plot has so many different elements, but they are interwoven together so nicely that it never feels excessive.

    I can't say enough about the writing in The Uncanny. When I was reading, it almost seemed like I was watching a movie of what I was reading. Klavan really knows how to draw the reader into the story. With it's lush atmosphere, foggy gloom and seeming constant drizzle this modern day tale seemed itself out of an old English ghost story. The mood is set perfectly.

    The ending wasn't really what I was hoping for but I can handle that. I'll still say this is a fantastic book that I highly recommend!
