First off...I would like to give this a 3.5 star review. Justin Evans writes well. Nothing irritates me more than an author who has come up with a great story but writes poorly. Mr. Evans will not let you down if style is important to you. What I did not like about this book was that not a single person had a hard time coming to terms with Andrew's assertion that he was being stalked by a ghost. Even if the ghost was part of the school's lore, you'd think some level of doubt would be natural. Not so in The White Devil. Very unrealistic. Other than that, though, this was a good read.

    The 411 by Maria:
    Before kids, I was a big fan of Stephen King and read everything by him and authors in the same genre. A Stephen King quote on the cover and I was in! Soooo...I really wanted to like this book.

    It took me over two weeks to read which kinda tells me that I wasn't really into it. I like the idea of Andrew, an American being sent to a rich boarding school and I like the idea of a ghost haunting the school but I didn't connect with the story at all.

    There were moments when I thought, ahhh finally, I like this..things are getting better but it just never got there for me. I appreciate the fact that the story incorporates the non-fictional Lord Byron and his life at Harrow School and mashups of reality with fiction are interesting to me but I can't put my finger on what would have made this better for me which is why I have always referred to myself as the Amateur Book Reviewer because really, what do I know.

    What I did like was the ghost hunt and the visions of the ghost and his ability to give people a life threatening disease. Creepy and a little disturbing.

    Good premise, poor execution.

    This novel had a fantastic idea and just let it explode upon itself. Another reviewer commented on the ending being completely unsatisfying. How else could you explain with the rising tension about to climax for our hero Andrew ... to spend all night writing an essay? Some of the dialogue prompted me to bust out laughing at the most inappropriate scenes. If you can rent, lend, or borrow- save the space on your ereader.
